Came out here during Veterans Day weekend to get away from the City and to relax and bond with my new Rescue dog. The property was pretty tricky to find if you weren't paying attention, but the host's directions were pretty spot on. I was pleasantly surprised to discover how large the hipcamp site was, definitely unexpected, it was great. My dog had a great time exploring the land and chasing after the jack rabbits. If you have extra long hammock straps, you could even string a hammock between the two trees right behind the Hipcamp sign, it gives you a perfect view of the ridge that leads to the water spickets. And don't let the corrugated metal on the bathroom fool you, it's actually a nice and clean toilet.

Such a great spot! The dog had plenty of space to run around, it was super clean and felt very private.

Saving my solo impromptu trip

The stay was fantastic! Before I got to this site, I was on a solo trip up the coast from socal when I stopped to camp at Ponderosa Campground up on Nacimiento-fergusson road nearby. I was so unsatisfied with having to drive through Fort Hunter Liggett to get in and out of the site that for my second night, I made an impromptu reservation with Niel at Hideaway Oaks. Best decision I could've made. Camping on safe private property, no poison oak, and not having to drive through the fort were all life changers. Both hosts were so so kind the whole time. I was provided a hiking map and a picnic table in addition to the site upon arrival. Despite my short-notice appearance, I was greeted kindly and openly. There were no fires but I thrived just cooking on my stove. There are yellowjackets so be aware that while they're not really a problem, allergic individuals should be cautious. Loved all the wildlife, including but not limited to deer, owls, squirrels, birds, etc. Night sky was killer, and the property has a wonderful plateau for stargazing. The bathroom situation is way better than I was expecting as well! Would definitely stay here again if I found myself nearby. If you're here, definitely try to find the chicken farm on Nacimento Lake Rd (closer to 101) for some fresh blue eggs for breakfast while camping!

The directions from the host were easy to follow and the campground was very nice. The actual area was awesome, with great stargazing opportunities. Toilet was also clean and nicely setup.

Overall, one of the best campgrounds I've stayed in recently.

Great secluded spot, easy scenic drive from 101. Nice and quiet, shade, nice table and fire pit. I met the owner Neil- he stopped by to make sure everything was good when I arrived. Will definitely make this a regular camping stop!
