A secluded canyon in the wilderness with oak and pine trees below, juniper and yucca on the drier mountains above. The campsite is close to a dirt road with occasional but little cars, nestled below a community center in the making on the hill. Large trees give a private feel. Views of mountains surround the campsite, occasional free range cows drift through, and free range
A secluded canyon in the wilderness with oak and pine trees below, juniper and yucca on the drier mountains above. The campsite is close to a dirt road with occasional but little cars, nestled below a community center in the making on the hill. Large trees give a private feel. Views of mountains surround the campsite, occasional free range cows drift through, and free range goats that live in a cave far above the camp come visit during the day. A dry creek bed with colorful rocks run past the campsite, an organic garden is close by but not in view of campsite. It has a mostly private feel, but can be viewed from the road above through the trees if you make an effort to see. The sounds of quail and other birds are common. Bunnies are often seen, and the echos of coyotes through the canyon are enchanting at night. It is mostly quiet aside from the barking of dogs in the far distance (from houses that are not in view) on occasion, and occasional cars. Across from the land is a fenced property that is not is use and only viewable from the communal area above. There are young cactus planted near the camping area so be sure to keep children from touching them. There is a water spigot at the campsite.
The host wishes to connect with campers eager to learn about off grid living, sustainable growing, wild food foraging, natural building and more if they are interested, but it is not required for camping stays. Also, musicians/singers/rappers who would like to jam/freestyle or listen to hosts original music (bluesy electric guitar/rap/rock) are welcome! Campers are free to have their privacy, and if they would like to socialize with the host that is also welcome. Only one site is booked at a time unless an event is being held. Lake Isabella and Remington Hot Springs are an hour away for day trips. An archery shooting area is available in the campsite, and archery rentals are offered. A music studio with drum set is available for hourly rentals. Many classes are also offered to campers.
Please be aware that once campers exit the 58 freeway and drive through the long canyon towards the camp, there is no cell service for the rest of the trip, and no cell service at the camp. There is Wifi for internet calls at the camp if need be. The closest grocery store and gas station are an hour away so please plan accordingly. Be sure to watch for cows in the road on the winding drive through the canyon after exiting the 58.

If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
A good place, very nature friendly. Good and kind host. It is isolated and that gives a special experience. Make sure to go a bit early and the path to the place winds a bit and seemed a bit unsafe when I drove late in the night.
Nothing short of amazing!
This was my second time at Wild Thingz and, just like my first visit, it was epic!! I can’t say enough good things about this place and the host, Sarah. You should definitely experience the magic for yourself! I can’t wait to go back!!
We went to Sarah for her cob class we left feeling very confident on how to mix cob to make our own pizza oven or kiln or even a house. Of course will need to study more to make a house but we enjoyed that one day class very much and hope to go back someday
A little bit of paradise.
We had the most wonderful time at Wild Thingz Eco Farm, so wonderful that we have already booked our return stay. The land is beautiful and there are areas on the campground where you may lounge on a couch or in a hammock! There is a water spigot near the composting toilet, which is way better than any campground toilet I’ve seen. We loved having access to the cob rocket stove for cooking, as well as the cob oven, where we roasted marshmallows at night and made s’mores under a sky full of stars. Sarah is such a warm and welcoming host. She really loves the place, and it’s so evident. If you could bottle tranquility, it would smell like the breeze that wafts through the juniper trees and mountains at Wild Thingz Eco Farm.
My wife and I loved Wild Thingz so much that we just booked another camping trip, right after returning from there.
Sarah the owner is a lovely person.
The place is lovely, and easy to camp in.
