A vast expanse of oak trees, California Junipers and rugged, mountainous land running with jackrabbits, quail, and owls that is just 3 miles from Vazquez Rocks and the PCT, our ranch transports you. From the tent campsite, you look out for 20 miles and see nothing but nature across small mountains and canyons all the way to the peaks of Angeles National Forest in the distance. The campsite is a large flat area. For a trailer or RV it's a great place to park and the view is towards wide open spaces. With a tent or if you want more pure nature, you can drive out onto the property further towards the small ruin of the old homesteader's cabin or beyond. The property has a long-abandoned gold mine and circular arrastres where miners used mules to break up rocks. Nearby Acton has pick-your-own apples/pears/peaches at Bloom farms. We are at 3000 feet with strong sun during the day and cool mountains air at night. The camping is set away from structures, but if you want to stroll, closer to the ranch buildings, we have friendly small goats you can visit if interested and horses and a donkey to say hello to across the corral fence.

Allen was a fantastic host. He answered any questions that I had prior to our visit. My wife and I enjoyed staying at his place. Even though we were near homes, we felt like we had a sense of isolated privacy to ourselves. We had our tent facing the view, and the mountains and shrubbery went on endlessly.

There's a picnic table next to a flat surface area for parking and a few trail hikes.

Thank you, Allen!

Awesome place. The animals were fun and friendly. There was a thunderstorm off in distance that was incredibly beautiful to watch. There’s lots of exploring you can do on the land so it perfect for hiking.

This is a pretty rustic spot in what feels like the back area of a ranch property, set up in the hills down some dirt roads. It’s so quiet at night and the views of the hills are beautiful. Allen was really responsive and super clear in his communications. It’s so remote and yet so close to “civilization” in LA... I’d definitely camp here again.

Simple camp set up with a picnic table. The ground is cleared and super level for setting up your tent which is nice. The site is pretty big, so you’ve got a lot of room to spread out. I heard about other campsites around as well, it looked like those were more for vehicles that had 4 wheel drive or you could probably take your car out there if you’re up for some off-roading.

It was fun meeting the animals in the morning. Recommend this spot if you’re looking for a more rugged campsite.

It was wonderful! Allen has two horses, a donkey, and four goats in enclosures near the camp that my dog was quite intrigued by. Plus, I added on the fresh eggs from his chickens! A nice camping area with an amazing sunset. All in all, a wonderful stay, not too far from home.
