This site is called our "Diamond" site, as we have sold our walnuts to Diamond nuts since 1976. Stay in a 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, a Bakery, and a fine-dining 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 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).

Thanks for the homemade cookies - what a sweet surprise! We received clear instructions on how to get there, enjoyed the fire pit at night, spent a quiet night next the walnut trees, loved watching the crows communicating among themselves. We would definitely consider this location in the future. This place is also very close to downtown Solvang.

This place is a gem! Perfectly situated between Santa Ynez, Solvang, and Los Olivos. It was great to have dinner nearby at lovely spots like Bar Le Cote and Coast Range then pull up by the campfire under the stars. Easy transaction, and you don't have to check-in, just pull up! Will book again.

This was our third stay at the Lovely Walnut Grove and it’s still our favorite hip camp! It inspires us every time we visit and we can’t wait for the next time. Delicious cookies and walnuts, a beautiful grove and so many sweet towns and fun places to visit all around. If you are considering exploring this area this is definitely where you want to be. We and our kids have a blast here and appreciate Mike and Anne sharing their property with us! Thank you!! :)

We absolutely loved coming here! Mike and Anne are the perfect hosts! They are quick to get back to you with any questions you might have. Make sure to purchase the homemade sourdough bread, chocolate chip cookies, and marmalade.

We absolutely love the walnut grove! This is our second time staying and we are already planning our next visit. Mike and Anne are so lovely. We highly recommend adding the walnuts and cookies to your stay :) so delicious. We we’re able to harvest some walnuts which our kids really loved. The land is incredibly beautiful and the whole family has fun running around the grove, visiting the ponies across the road, having a fire and enjoying the sunsets. The nearby towns are also really sweet and there is plenty to explore! Our favorite hip camp ❤️
Thank you!!

Our weekend at Anne and Mike’s Walnut Grove was just what we needed. We were looking for a peaceful get away for relaxation and rejuvenation. We were not disappointed. We felt welcome and at home in Diamond 1 campsite.

Wine tastings each day, a short walk away. A trip to Los Olivos with a quick stop at a lavender farm made the weekend even more fun!

Fireside relaxing and early morning sunrises made or weekend away perfect!

Welcome note with so much information. Site fit our 30’ RV and our friends pop up so well! Lovely Walnut Grove for RV CamperWarm sourdough from our host with homemade marmalade

This was our second stay at The Lovely Walnut Grove. Once again we were not disappointed. You won’t find better hosts than Anne and Mike. And, we got to meet Anne’s sister who sold us some goose eggs, which we will try as soon as we get home. If you are looking for peace and quiet in wonderful surroundings this is the place. We will definitely be back

Really nice spot in the middle of the walnut trees. Very well located and we enjoyed the welcome goodies.
ATT signal was not going through in the camp site but worked-ish by the farm stand near the road. Everything else was top notch

Lovely spot in amongst the walnut trees. Fairly close to the road but very quiet when we were there. Anne was very welcoming when we arrived. Enjoyed sitting around the fire in the evening.
