Splitrock Farm and Retreat
8 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents101 acres · Fallbrook, CAAbout Splitrock Farm and Retreat Far Away, Close to Home Splitrock Farm and Retreat started in January 2021 after a global search of a place to set roots, live off the land, and create an amazing place for recreation, relaxation, and rejuvenation. Splitrock Farm Splitrock was part of a 160-acre avocado farm that prospered from 1970 to 2017, generating over 1million pounds of avocados per year until the previous owners switched off the water in 2017. Ben purchased 101 acres in 2021 with plans to harvest the dead avocado trees for firewood and replant with organic, sustainable crops such as grapes, citrus trees, and flowers. Splitrock Retreat Splitrock's attraction comes from its unique groves, magnificent granite boulders, and sweeping vistas. Mixed within the avocado groves are several ancient groves and solitary trees that include 200 foot tall pines, hundreds of old oaks, and soaring palms. Freckled throughout the hillsides are thousands of humongous granite boulders, offering a prehistoric feel to the landscape. Above all, Splitrock offers unrivaled views. Over 40 miles of coastline includes views to Point Loma, the Carlsbad power station, and the Pendleton Hospital. To the northeast are views of near 11K foot snowy peaks of San Jacinto and San Gorgonio, with rolling hills of De Luz and Fallbrook in the foreground.

Rock & Tree
27 sites · RVs, Tents36 acres · Perris, CAIt's so nice to "meet you" Rock & Tree was created by a young and newly married couple, Taryn and and Anson. Anson Krekeler is a folk and blues musician and has traveled all around the U.S. playing his music and I was an aspiring Voice-Over actress. One day, we decided that we wanted to live the rest of our lives hosting live music, and plays and that's how Rock & Tree began. As the idea grew, we wanted to create an Open Canvas so that the guest could dream up what they wanted on our stage. We moved to the Inland Empire from Santa Monica, in 2017 with the dream of building an open canvas event space out of sustainable, re purposed and natural materials. Our mission is help enrich the culture of Perris, CA by providing a unique venue that takes you away from the hustle and bustle and takes you to a wonderland of nature surrounded by rocks and eucalyptus trees.A true passion project, Anson and I are building everything ourselves with the help of our friends and family every now and again. Our process is that we source as much lumber using the dead Eucalyptus trees we have here on the 36 acre property and we are constantly trying to come up with innovative ways to use recycled and donated materials in the venue. We now live on the property in a 24ft camper and we feel so lucky that our dream is slowly becoming a reality. You can follow our journey on our Instagram.

Dragonfly Hill Desert Farm
10 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents3 acres · Desert Hot Springs, CAWelcome to DragonflyHill Desert Farm & Wildlife Habitat where you can experience desert magic, starry skies, and natural mineral water. Remote enough for a quiet retreat yet easy to get to and only a short drive to amenities and outdoor adventures! Please read the entire listing description, including our rules and our ever changing Coronavirus (COVID 19)  protocols, to assure we’re the right space for you. We welcome guests new to Hipcamp but please take the time to familiarize yourself with the Hipcamp platform. Hipcamp travel is very different from public campgrounds.  At DragonflyHill Desert Farm and Wildlife Habitat you will be guests in our home. Please have your profile completed with full verification and payment method with Hipcamp. Message us via the Hipcamp platform with an introductory inquiry and communicate with us throughout your trip planning process from reservation to departure.Camp in your own tent, RV or camper  under the starlit desert sky on our beautiful desert farm and wildlife habitat.  There are no assigned spaces in our listing on the Hipcamp platform.  In this way we can tailor your location to your needs. (Do you want to be near bathrooms or away from other  campers?  Do you want to be near the  main house?  What type of space does your trailer need?, etc).  Some spaces have fire pits though during high winds and dry seasons, campfires are not allowed. We can provide your RV/camper with water but currently do not have waste disposal. For an extra fee we can offer a 20amp hookup to 3 campsites.  For an additional fee, pets are allowed at campsites. We welcome and encourage guests with service and support animals to stay with us.  (See rules). All animals must have current vaccination records. We are one mile down a well maintained and navigable dirt road,  20 minutes to Palm Springs, Desert Hot Springs and Palm Desert. We're near the Cabazon outlets, 2 hours to Los Angeles, Disneyland, beaches. There are local wildlife preserves, hiking and outdoor activities. We are half an hour to Joshua Tree and Coachella.  We truly are in the middle of nowhere and the center of everything. For folks traveling in winter, we’re considerably warmer than Joshua Tree and the High Desert. Immediate neighbors are small farmers and ranchers. Our land is 130 feet wide by an eighth of a mile deep in a residential neighborhood with lots 2.5-5 acres.  We can see and hear our neighbors.  Guests wanting a totally isolated experience may want a different listing. DragonflyHill Urban Farm is a working farm in a wilderness area. Guests should check weather forecasts prior to arrival and assure that they have the right equipment. There are occasional heavy rains and frequent high winds. It can get very hot in summer and reach freezing temperatures in winter. Despite our proximity to the freeway and nearby cities, and our location in a residential neighborhood, this is very much a wilderness area.  Tent campers should be experienced campers with adequate equipment.  We affirmatively welcome children, but as this is a working farm in a wilderness area, parents  will need to be vigilant of their child's safety and activity while here.DragonflyHill Collective is a community of artisans, activists, craftspeople and farmers, working together to cultivate community, develop methodologies for living and working together in ever increasing paradigms of social justice and sustainability. Some members of the Dragonfly Team live on the premises at all times and will be here for the duration of your stay. The rest of the team are community members. All Team members work at DragonflyHill Desert Farm and Wildlife Habitat in different capacities, in cooperation and collaboration with each other. There are also community events at the farm, including urban farming though many activities, are just coming back after the pandemic. We hope to offer activities in the Fall. We regret that for the near future, we will not be offering our legendary breakfast. All activities will continue to be held outdoors and social distancing is required.   We love to hear about your travels and share our knowledge of our community and Southern California with our guests. It should be noted that we are not a museum community and our collective is not on display. Only 2-3 members of the community are currently responsible for hosting guests.  Community members are autonomous and during the pandemic and going forward, much of our community functions virtually. DragonflyHill is a safe and sober space that is disability and LGBTQ affirmative, anti-racist, anti-sexist, anti-imperialist and de-colonialist, because anything else is just a bandaid. Core values of our work include attention to detail, fine craftwork and cultivating community. DragonflyHill Desert Farm and Wildlife Habitat is an emerging space with new features changing regularly. We are not  a resort. Expect dry plants and patches during summer and into the fall.   As a farm, we may be a bit more rustic than your typical farm to allow for shelter for local wildlife. Our cultivation methods encourage biodiversity and though we are growing food, many of our crops resemble landscaping or natural habitat rather than garden patches. Currently we have habitat viewing areas, an herb garden, an orchard and palm trees. Plant varieties, wildlife and presentation may vary by season. Our farm specializes in herbs, fruit trees, desert and native plants,  and edible flowers. We also grow some sprouts and micro greens indoors. We cultivate community and share what we grow with our neighbors and our guests. Guests have shared access to the outdoor kitchen and BBQ area, the orchards, gardens, patios, and grounds of the Desert Farm and Wildlife Habitat, and (for safety reasons)  limited access to the pool pond and spa (see all rules). Guests must use designated bathrooms and showers for bathing and bathroom needs. Wildlife is to be respected and unimpeded at all times. Guests may not go into private areas including other guest and residential spaces, work areas and storage areas. The pool pond is filled with local mineral water from our own well. The pool pond is cleaned professionally twice a week & is chlorinated. The pool pond  is not cleaned daily and is shared with wildlife. Debris from high winds and wildlife may contribute to the pool pond environment. Currently neither the pool pond nor the spa is heated. We are looking into passive solar heating options that are affordable and sustainable. See our rules for our policies specific to the use of the pool pond area. Local spas and resorts are available for day use and access to their pools and ponds for as little as $10 a day ($5 seniors). We can provide laundry service and space for events and entertaining for a small fee. We speak: English and Spanish. We can communicate somewhat in French, Italian and Portuguese.

The small city of Dana Point rests on Southern California's beautiful Pacific shores and is quite convenient to the area's big cities. Take I-5 north for an hour to reach Los Angeles. San Diego is an hour south. You also have easy 10-minute access to the beaches of San Clemente. Dana Point Harbor is the area's major draw. Rent a small paddle boat or charter a classic schooner to enjoy the Pacific waters close up. Got kids along for your trip? Make sure you take one of the harbor's memorable whale-watching tours. A six-lane launch ramp area makes it easy to bring your own watercraft. Doheny State Beach is right next door and the place to go if you're into surfing. Bring your board to the busy north side of the beach and get ready to make some friends. Tote your tent down to the south side to find waterside campsites. Note that there are no electrical or water hookups for RVs here. As with most areas in Southern California, Dana Point's weather is ace year-round. Highs stay between a very comfortable 65 to 80 from spring to fall. Even in the winter, low temps stay far from freezing.
