We recently purchased this beautiful property from Matt and Rachel so please bear with us while we work on making changes to this page. The campsites will be as they are listed. I’m very excited about sharing some of this with you. This off the grid property has been in building stages since 2018 and features multiple solar systems. There are three tent camping spaces, and one RV space. All guests have access to our shared bath house with large open air shower and flush toilet. This property is not super large at 2ac but we rarely book more than a couple sites at a time so it's rarely crowded and whichever spot you choose you have access to the other spots to walk to the pond if unoccupied. Only site 2 and 3 has pond views. But at all our sites you will be under trees, and mostly shaded. Our property is primarily 21/up. We do have a dog and two cats living here with us. Dogs are not allowed but we are willing to talk to you about your pet and to see if it could be OK. Our animals are family. It is their home and I want them always to feel safe. Thank you for understanding. We would also limit the length of stay to five days unless we talk and make a different agreement.

Off-grid camping with amenities!
Matt and Rachael were phenomenal hosts. Their creative spirits are on display through various stations and projects that they have built on this beautiful off-grid homestead. As soon as I arrived my gracious hosts made me feel comfortable and right at home. I would recommend this spot to anybody traveling through like I was or even if you just want to check out an off-grid chill spot. By far the best Hipcamp I've been to yet.

Great stopover for tent camping
Nice wooded spot to pitch our tent along our southern bike trek. Easy to find off highway 20 near Hollister. Basic site with nearby bathhouse, water and outdoor kitchen available. Matt and Rachel were responsive and welcoming hosts. Definitely recommend for a convenient tent stay.

Remote and relaxing!
Matt's place was really fun! A bit out of the way, but very worth it! He was generous with the firewood, and gave me a tour of his solar/off grid homestead. Flush toilet, lights around at night so I could see. I would totally stay there again!

Although it was close to their home it was very private. There’s a small pond to just look at and breathe in the fresh air. The bathroom had hot water which was awesome. Our first experience and it rocked!

There was a vibe.
The first night was great. Met Matt right away and he was very informative of the grounds and the area to camp. Seemed like a smart and good dude that was stoked on life. Hung out by the pool and fire pit with great music and conversation. Definitely a spot to hangout at if you like unplugging for awhile and having good vibes all around. 🏄🏼‍♂️🙏🏻🏴‍☠️

Sweet Spot for Camping.
Campsite was great. Nice amount of room, space for tent and parking. Plenty of privacy, a fire pit, and Matt ( the host) had extra fire wood for sale in case you run out. Simple and easy. Thats what camping is all about! Thanks Matt.

Thank you Matt and Rachel for hosting us on this awesome off grid oasis you’ve created. Simply by talking to the hosts and staying on site you can tell they have put in a lot of work and energy into creating a welcoming, homey space for guests. Site has shower/bathhouse (all solar), communal kitchen and communal fire pit. Short drive to local hiking trails. Flat and soft ground Easy for setting up tent. Matt was super communicative and answered all my questions before arrival. Couldn’t have asked for better hosts and spot. Would definately Stay again if in the area.

Like camping in a friends backyard
I’m very glad I found this location for my first Hipcamp stay. The site is far enough away if you choose to do your own thing but close enough for access to the bathroom and unique kitchen area. I was invited to join in discussions on the porch and was glad to do so. Frank and open conversations is part of what fuels my desire to travel. As an avid traveler himself, Matt has worked hard to create a peaceful atmosphere in the camp for guests. If you ever wondered if solar could work for you he’s a wealth of practical knowledge. The bathroom is simply a great bonus for any camper. Despite being somewhat open to elements it’s every bit as clean and comfortable as a home bathroom. After a long days ride, going to bed clean is very welcome. Each of the sites are flat and quite comfortable nestled among the trees with access to a private pond where you can simply relax. I highly recommend adding this to your favorites list should your route come close.

Off the grid and quiet
Totally off grid and in a quiet location. Matt made us feel welcome and gave us a tour of his unique setup. Bath house was a nice bonus.

The area was Extremely quiet with plenty of beautiful scenery and was the perfect break. The owner is as hospitable as can be and has outfitted the property with a working toilet, shower, gas stove, and grill. The fire pit was great though we didn't make use of it at the time, and everything being solar powered was a nice touch. Overall I was impressed with the time I spent there and would find myself there again, especially at the price it is.

Our stay with Matt was totally perfect! When we arrived, Matt already had the gate open for us and we were able to easily pull in with our 21 ft self-contained camper. There were multiple locations for us to park, and we chose a spot close to the beautiful large live oak tree. Matt has impressive knowledge about off grid living, and we loved learning about his awesome solar setup. There are some incredibly awesome amenities for campers, such as a bathhouse with a toilet and shower, an open air kitchen for campers to use, and a bluetooth stereo to connect your tunes to. In the evening we enjoyed chatting around the fire with Matt and his parents who were there during our stay. Matt gave us a tour of some of the projects he’s been working on and the in-and-outs of solar power setups and off-grid living. We would definitely recommend this as a relaxing and unique camping adventure.

peace and quiet, safety, very nice
If you can't tolerate Trump supporters, I'm not left or right, anywho, this place is not for you, otherwise really nice people, clean bathroom, usable sink and kitchen area, pond is too small to kayak, but overall a really nice peaceful place with really nice people, first place i stayed without locking myself in at night, even fed me some really good eats, I would definitely stay again

Many attractions nearby.
Very cool, laid back and quiet. The shower is large and the hot water feels great after a long day. Matt is a very good hearted person who goes out of his way to accommodate his guests. There is a shared firepit with tunes and a grill as well.

The hosts were very friendly and welcoming. The facilities were far better than I expected off the grid (shower is huge, plenty of hot water). Site was level and clean. A great experience for my first Hipcamp!
