Great way to get away from the hustle and have a nice camping experience. The boulder campfire area was fantastic and very calm and cozy. The tent area was on the back side of the boulder group and had some road noise and loud engines through the night (Friday night) so bring ear plugs, but other than that was a great property and super accommodating and nice. Will go back again!

Prehistoric giant rock campfires!

Ancient majestic boulders really set the scene for a cool fire pit. It gives you the feeling that many native Americans before us probably used the same carved out area on the rock as a backdrop for many campfires! Lots of great views and cool mini pathways to get to the tent area, and the campire/grilling area! it's really even better than the photos! Definitely be aware that it is within an area that is not wilderness - as the listing describes - but it's not an issue at all for me - plenty of privacy and get away feeling which is not to be missed! Brent and his wife were awesome and we had a few nice chats upon arrival and departure. Super kind folks and I cannot wait to go back!! lots of cool places to explore near the area, cool farm stands, wineries, and the Alta Vista Botanica Gardens!! really nice trek to walk around and chill!

An amazing piece of land so close to San Deigo. Brent is a welcoming and gracious host. The best part was the really unique fire experience set right in a boulder. Don't miss out on the fire! Bonus if you're into birds: Grab your coffee and a pair of binoculars and walk past the fire ring in the morning and sit on the ledge overlooking the valley, there are a couple of palms that are really rich with bird activity.

We absolutely loved camping here! We expected a basic sort of site, and it was so much more! The views, the beautiful solar lights softly illumining everything, the massive boulders giving a sheltered space for a campfire, a yeti cooler to keep our food in, and the mattresses and bedding were the real deal! (Though definitely bring your own sleeping bag or blankets as well) Brent and his family are so nice and accommodating, and if you’re lucky you’ll get to meet pumpkin the pig :) Definitely recommend staying here!

A one of a kind camping experience

Nestled between the 5 and 15, Reid Ranch, site 1, is a one of a kind campsite and is only a 35ish minute drive from San Diego. I’m glad I found it! This was my first time suburban camping and I enjoyed. It’s a mix of country quiet, with some city noises. At night by the fire, coyotes howled, dogs barked and owls hooted. You do hear airplanes, and traffic, but you also hear roosters crowing throughout the day and the fire crackling in the evening. I slept well

Site 1 is awesome. You can pitch your tent, or Brent will set one up for you in the “lower level”. A short ascent up a few flat rocks through a natural crack in the boulder leads to the “upper level”…your dining and entertainment area. A natural, fire pit/chimney formation allows you to safely burn fires while relaxing, eating or stargazing. The upper level is complete with a propane grill, large Yeti cooler (BYOI), a stump table and four stumps for sitting.

There is a picnic table and sink with ice cold, clean tasting water that I couldn’t stop drinking on the lower level as well as a camper for showers and using the bathroom. I also used it to charge my electric bike.

Brent sells firewood for $8.00 bundle. I had a mix of cedars, pines and oak. It was beautifully colored wood and the length/diameter was perfect for the campfire.

If you live in San Diego and need a quick camping trip or want a camping experience with a suburban twist, then come sit by the fire for a night.

Brent has put a lot of time and effort into this great campsite. Thank you to him and his family for sharing this cool place.

Reid Ranch is super chill. The portion of the campsite with the fire pit is awesome, nestled in between Boulder formations with a nice view of the valley and mountains. I crashed for 1 night and it was the perfect weekend getaway to reset and recharge. Brent and Kate are super welcoming and great hosts. All around good vibes at the Reid Ranch.

We are local and were looking for a simple camping getaway that would have a few amenities above the standard state parks. It was close enough, had an outdoor sink, a super cool rock-fire-pit, a nice picnic table with an umbrella, a trailer with a toilet for our use and this spot was secluded enough to feel more like camping than your own backyard experience. Hosts were super friendly, very helpful and very hospitable.
