This site is affectionately called "Chandler", named after the variety of walnuts that we grow. Back your self-contained RV, Conversion Van, or Trailer into a secluded site in our 20 acre walnut grove. We are 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! The site includes a bistro table, wooden picnic table, fire pit with 3-4 pieces of seasoned firewood (add-on additional bundles available for $10), and bench-swing, all surrounded by lovely lighting (we will also throw in a treat for both our guests and their doggies) . This is for self-contained units that will back-in, as there is not room to turn around. * 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. We also offer a second site in the Grove, which accommodates larger RV's with up to 6 people (called "Lovely Walnut Grove for RV Camper" - which has a larger area, picnic table, fire pit, corn hole, complimentary candied walnuts). 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 built-in water and waste water tanks - sorry, no portable toilets ). No tents unless they are accompanying a self contained RV).

Our second visit to the Walnut Grove and just as wonderful as our first time there. The hosts are amazing, the area is stunningly beautiful and peaceful, and everything with the site is perfect. We will be back, thank you Mike and Anne.

We always love staying here - so convenient to all the wine tasting and fun restaurants and then cozy and secluded when we come back to camp for the night. Plus, Mike and Anne are always super helpful and friendly

It’s a very quiet and nice camp site. Walnut trees are right above our van, which makes us feel the nature so well. Mike and Anne prepared welcome gift for us and even our dog. That’s very sweet. Thank you!

I have used Hip Camp numerous times and research hundreds of places to always book the right spot. For Los Olivos, I was crossing my fingers because this was the first time truly boondocking (dry camping) and was nervous.

That worry was immediately erased when we pulled up to the spot. This place is truly magical. Not far out of Los Olivos, but far enough away to feel secluded. The orchard you are surrounded by is peaceful and gorgeous. They setup the space so perfectly. The host came and greeted us and told us a little bit about the farm. She handed us some delicious cookies made with their walnuts.

This a hidden gem on hip camp and will definitely be coming back

Anne and Mike are the best hosts - this is our second time staying with them and it is the perfect location for wine tasting, bike riding, Los Olivos, Solvang - close to it all, but secluded and peaceful!

Very nice place to stay! Private and well kept. We ordered cookies and some delicious walnuts. They provided some wood for a fire in the evening. There is a tiny horse farm across the street as an added bonus!
