Lovely, private walnut grove nestled in the village of Ballard and in the heart of the Santa Ynez Valley. Walking distance to two Tasting Rooms, as well as an award winning restaurant! This space is designed for a single RV ** see note at bottom about additional Trailers (must be self contained with built-in water and wastewater tanks - sorry, no portable toilets). Pull in to a designated area among the trees and enjoy. Sprinkled with lighting, we include a picnic table,  campfire pit with 3-4 pieces of split wood (you can add-on  additional bundle for $10), Weber BBQ, and Corn-Hole Game. We will also throw in a delicious treat for both our guests and their doggies. * Note that the trees lose their leaves in the winter and will leaf-out in late May. This may affect sound barrier and privacy a bit. Please message us for special requests, such as small groups traveling together.  We also offer a second location in the grove, called "Secluded Walnut Grove for Small RV", which is designed for smaller units (Site Two has a picnic table, fire pit, bench swing, bistro table and lighting). The two sites are 200 yards apart (that's two football fields) assuring your privacy. Please note in your request what you will be traveling in (RV, Trailer, Sprinter - etc)  (** Please note that because we are a food-producing farm, we are only allowed to accept fully self-contained units (with both gray and waste water tanks).  No tents unless they are accompanying a self contained RV). And finally, traveling with friends and want to have two trailers/campers at the site? No problem. Just "Add On" the extra trailer through Hip Camp. (50% of regular rate).

Our stay at the walnut gove

The Walnut Grove was a wonderful place to stay. Our hosts Mike and Anne were very friendly and our camp spot was beautiful, clean and quite large. Everything we needed was there. Including picnic table with h umbrella, corn hole game and love lighting for your space. The location couldn’t have been better for our trip. We went into Los Olivia, Santa Barbara, and Solvang. All are right there close. We ordered the homemade walnut bread and it was absolutely delicious. I would definitely recommend this spot.

Unfortunately we were not able to stay due to a forest fire in the area, however the hosts were gracious enough to refund us and invite us back for another stay. They are such great people we will definitely be back.

This was our first Hipcamp experience and now the bar is set high. My husband and I were celebrating our 33rd wedding anniversary and wanted to do a little getaway. “Lovely Walnut Grove” fits the site description perfectly. When we pulled up there were flowers on the table along with a “lovely”anniversary card. As per their site description everything was there and clean from the table, chairs , Weber bbq, etc. The hosts Mike and Anne were very friendly and easy going. Anne came to meet us on the first day bringing us walnut chocolate chip cookies. Yummy! Mike arrived a few minutes later and introduced himself. We all had a nice chat.
When we booked our site we also ordered the fresh baked walnut sourdough to be delivered on Friday night. Anne delivered our bread on the scheduled date and time. The loaf was large, warm and looked fabulous. Anne even brought us butter. It didn’t disappoint. It was soooo delicious.
On our check out day Mike delivered the candied walnuts we had ordered. They were the best candied walnuts we had ever had.
Anne’s sister Carrie runs the produce stand at the entrance of the property . She was also very friendly and had an assortment of fruits and vegetable for sale. Her heirloom tomatoes and concord grapes were juicy and flavorful.
We traveled there with a 32 foot fifth wheel trailer and a long bed truck. No problem parking at all.
On the second night there were campers on the other camp site. We could barely see them and didn’t hear them at all. At this time the leaves were still on the walnut trees.
We will definitely be back!!

Great location near wineries shops and restaurants. An easy walk through the Walnut Grove to charming Ballard. Short drive to Los Olivos. Peaceful setting, So basically everything you need. And you must try Anne’s baked goods, the sourdough bread and walnut chocolate chip cookies are the best! Thank you Mike and Anne.

What a fabulous place to stay. They have two spots well away from each other. Site 1 I would say would be for larger and taller rigs. That’s the site we stayed in. There were Cokjies for our dog when we arrived and later Ann brought us walnut chocolate chip cookies. Awesome. The camp has solar lights and solar spring lights. So beautiful at night. There is also a corn hole game to play. Super area. My only negative would be the price but compared to what else is around there it’s cheaper then the RV park. Very lovely place amd I would stay again.

The walnut grove is everything you want and more. Serene. Bucolic. Charming twinkle lights, a fire pit, corn hole game, and outdoor chairs await. The stars were beautiful and Anne was very kind. One of the best Hip Camps ever!
