We are so excited to host you! This area has the unique designation of a community with privately owned property in the middle of the Anza Borrego State Park.  Primarily due to rugged outdoor loving folks in the 1930's that would make the 6 hour journey by car from San Diego to spend time among the jackrabbits, kit foxes and burros!

We are so excited to host you! This area has the unique designation of a community with privately owned property in the middle of the Anza Borrego State Park.  Primarily due to rugged outdoor loving folks in the 1930's that would make the 6 hour journey by car from San Diego to spend time among the jackrabbits, kit foxes and burros!

About the property

Our property is not a commercial campground. You will be "glamping" at our home. The five acre parcels are "Jack Rabbit Homesteads"  granted in 1938 that ensure privacy and back up to Cleveland National Forest. George Leetch of Canebrake said it best...the people who come here "find the peace and beauty of the desert vastness a healing seclusion and comforting relief from the frenzied outside world”. We work to cultivate an atmosphere of united fellowship and good-neighborliness prevails, but a respect for privacy is held in high regard.

We are on the floor of the AB desert surrounded by hiking and four wheel driving trails. The closest town is Julian to the north 45 minutes away and Ocotillo to the South 25 minutes away You can find hot springs 5 minutes away and the stars at night are endless. There are several small stores 10 to 15 minutes away to buy ice and sundries should you need them. 

For those looking for outdoor adventures there are four hikes of varying levels directly from our site. There are hot springs 5 minutes away as well as four-wheel drive roads. If you want snow, Julian is 45 minutes away up the mountain and offers good opportunities for snow play. Off-road biking is available in Ocotillo which is 25 minutes away to the South. Road biking is super fun from our site as there is so little traffic where we are!

We live onsite and like to greet Hipcampers at arrival and then leave them to enjoy themselves. We do offer different extra experiences as well if you want to hike, learn to bubble, or learn to prepare raw food. Make sure you take a look at our ‘extras’ during booking if you would like to do one of these.

For our second visit to Ellyn H’s land, this time we invited two friends who stayed in the Silver Streak. They enjoyed the comfort of the Silver Streak and we all certainly loved cooking on the campfire and gazing up into the star-filled evenings. Our friends said they’d come back.

This was our second time since December--just as great as the first time! We camped at the campsite this time and our friends stayed in the Silver Streak. The stars were still phenomenal, and the views were still awesome.

Amazing stay, so peaceful and remote. We had a blast, and stayed comfortable while still having a camping experience. Wonderful hosts and a great value.

10/10 would come back! This was exactly what I wanted. Ellyn is such a cool lady! She lent us a few of her favorite books, showed us around the property, and was generally friendly and fun. And the trailer was cozy, with really really great views and a very soft bed with lots of blankets. Ellyn pointed out cool stuff to do nearby and we poked around a few different areas in the south end of the park. Fantastic sunsets and sunrises too.

Levi it was so wonderful to have you two here. You made me even pick up a book! And the honeycomb and flower arrangement is so beautiful. You two are so thoughtful. And I appreciated that you told me about a few places I didn't know about. And I just so the rainbow pictures. Thank you so much. Please come back soon!
