Our base site rental fee is $75 for the first person.  We charge an additional $49 per person after the base site fee.  

Children under 12 are FREE max 2 children if you have more than 2 children please add an extra adult for every 3 children under 12.

Our property consists of 43 rugged/hilly/mountainous acres with numerous flat plateaus and fantastic views. 

Each plateau has several great spots to car/van/truck camp, pitch a tent or park small trailers and small RVs. Larger RVs/Trailers fit on the front side of our property.  

SUMMER/FALL: Expect the landscape and views to be golden brown (not green and lush like in a lot of the photos posted which were taken this past winter/spring.)

PICKING YOUR CAMPSITE: When we are not sold out we place campers at campsites on a first-come-first-serve basis upon arrival.  If we are sold out we will pre-pick your campsite based on where we feel each of our campers will be happiest given their individual camp set up, i.e. Tent, Van, Trailer, RV, and size of the group.

All of our sites are spread out with plenty of space for social distancing.

DRY CAMPING: All of our sites are DRY camping (no water/electricity.) We provide a picnic table and one small tiki-hut style umbrella and a propane fire pit with a propane tank.

Our best sites, with little-to-no traffic noise, (and the best views) are on our back property.  Best suited for tents, camper vans, trucks, and SMALL trailers or SMALL RVs.  There is a semi-steep hill up to our upper property if you're towing a trailer you will need a powerful vehicle to make it up the hill.

Sites on our lower property by the common area are easily accessible with views up the hills/mountains but come with some highway noise.  We imagine it sounds like waves crashing and call it the "steel river."  

For your private camp area, please bring your own drinking water, water to wash dishes and if think you'll need: chairs, camp tables, umbrellas or shade structures, etc. 

Plan on being fully self-sufficient at your private camp area.  Otherwise, feel free to use the common area at the barn until 10 pm.


ABOUT OUR DOGS: We have three male dogs (one of the three is UN-NEUTERED) a 10-year-old yellow lab (Titan-Dan), a 11-year-old American Dingo (Reno) and 3-year-old Great Pyrenees (Bandit.) All three of our fur babies are great with children and non-aggressive visiting dogs.  We are fostering a 4-year-old female Great Pyrenees (we named Cannoli) who crossed the highway and found our property.   

COMMON USE AREA: Inside and near the barn include tables, chairs, hammocks, wood fire pit, outdoor propane BBQ and stove, small indoor kitchen available by reservation/pre-approval, outdoor mineral shower, and mineral cold plunge tubs.

FIRE SAFETY & PROPANE FIREPITS:  We have “very safe” propane firepits and fire extinguishers at every site. Under the right conditions, we will light a real wood fire at the common area by the barn.  Feel free to join us in the early evening until 10-11pm.  

PORTA-POTTIES: We have porta-potties next to the Barn, the Garden, Running Dog Flats, and the Art Studio.  They are pumped clean every Thursday and are generally very lightly used.  If you don’t want to use the porta-potties we recommend/encourage you to bring your own camp toilet, bags, and absorbent. 

WILDLIFE: Our dogs do a great job of fending off the resident bobcat and coyotes on the front portion of our property and by the barn, if they are barking in the night there's a reason. If you end up camping on the front portion of our property and think their barking will affect your sleep, bring earplugs ;-).

Drinking-Water, Dish Washing Water & Shade:  All of our sites are dry camping i.e. there is no potable water available. Please bring all your own drinking/dishwashing water.  We have a picnic table and tiki-hut umbrellas at all the sites. Please bring additional shade i.e. easy up or other shade structures if you think you'll need it. 

Cold Mineral Dunks & Hot Outdoor Mineral Shower: We have huge aluminum cowboy cold dunk tubs available at what we lovingly/jokingly refer to as our very own “Cactus Flower Beach,”  which is not a real beach… It feels like a beach because we’ve decked it out with lounge chairs, a daybed cabana, 150K pounds of sand and tiki-hut umbrellas.  It’s really fun to hang out there when it’s hot under the shade of the pepper trees.

  NOTE:   The Outdoor Shower screening is a tad see-through. If you are shy, wear a bathing suit.

  Please limit showers to 3-5 minutes max.

Mineral Water Definition: Water from a mineral spring or well (i.e. our well) that contains various minerals, such as salts and sulfur compounds.

Trash:  Please pack all your trash out to the large trash bin located at the entrance to our property. Please take your recycling with you.

Electricity & Wi-Fi: We have charging stations in the barn for your computers, phones, etc. Password: HowdyDoody (Accessible in and near the barn common area)

Commissary:  We have farm fresh eggs, bacon jerky, meats from the pork palace across the street, and other swag for sale in the barn.

Feed The Chickens & Goats: Please feel free to feed the goats and chickens your vegetable scraps and or bring them a treat they love full heads of cabbage, lettuce, cantaloupe and watermelon.

Children: For safety, Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times!


WINE TASTING: We are in the heart of the wine country with a tasting room less than one mile away and/or a few short miles into Buellton, Solvang, Santa Ynez, and/or Los Olivos.

BEACHES and HIKING: We are 5 minutes from the beach.  You can hike all over our property, see below for a list of all our recommendations.

I have been using Hipcamp since 2019. (Don’t mind the blank account I didn’t realize I logged in and created a new one. #nerdfail) Sierra and Darin (and co.) are next level. The attention to detail, to guests, the attention to the property, their combined creativity and kindness was felt in full force. I don’t want to spoil any surprises but you are in for QUITE the treat. Truly the best Hipcamp we have ever been to. Will ABSOLUTELY be returning. Much love to Sierra and Darin and thanks again!!! See you soon!!! Love Jeff, Jen, and Tedi

By now, Sierra and Darin probably think we weren’t sincere about wanting to write a glowing review about our stay with them in early October 2022, but nothing could be further from the truth! We haven’t stopped talking about, and sharing with friends, our first experience with Hipcamp and with Freedog Farms. From the complementary mug of beer upon arrival (Darin has 12 micro-brewery selections on tap in the barn) and an introductory tour of the farm to select a campsite, to a gathering of campers from all walks of life at Sierra’s community campfire every evening, the trip was a magical experience. Although most campers seemed to stay a short time on their way to somewhere else, we stayed four nights while exploring the nearby hiking trails and local wineries. The Farm itself offers much to explore, plenty of quiet places to relax, and fantastic views. The heated mineral water showers were luxurious and sure beat our typical sponge baths! Described online as dog-friendly, that is an understatement; our fur baby Nala was quickly befriended by the canine residents on the Farm and loved the opportunity to free-roam. Sierra and Darin are very friendly and welcoming. We can’t wait to stay again at Freedog Farms!

Such a great property, the views from each site are amazing and the overall vision for the property will want to make you return year after year. Hosts are super friendly, great common area, but private and quite so you can tuck away and enjoy the outdoors. Definitely recommend you check it out!

First trip with Van and 93 year old Mother and terrier. Sierra was so accommodating of mobility issues. We all loved the views and the creative feeling of being in nature. We saw deer, rabbits, and a multitude of birds. Sooooo wonderful!!!
