Pianetta Ranch & Winery Camp

COVID19 NOTE: Due to the current COVID19 pandemic we are only hosting one group at a time at our site.  We are practicing social distancing and want to be sure to keep our campers safe.  Located just north of the Paso Robles wine region, Pianetta Ranch and Winery is the perfect spot to pitch a tent and relax around a campfire (maybe with a glass of wine). The ranch is 95 acres, 65 of which is planted to vine, providing a beautiful setting along with wonderful views of Indian Valley north and south of the property. We have an open campsite that can accommodate large groups. If your group exceeds 30 people, please contact us directly for options. Children over the age of 6 must be included in the total headcount for your booking!  Our site fee is $80 for the first 2 people, and $30pp for every additional person. NO PETS ALLOWED. This is a perfect stopping point for cyclists and other traveling groups as we are located along the Peach Tree Trail or along the coastal route of 101. We are happy to host your group just as a campsite, but for larger groups we can also offer, vineyard and winery tours, barrel tasting, cheese pairings , and more! Extras are at additional cost and MUST be scheduled at least 48 hours prior to your stay. We will do our best to make ourselves available, but we cannot guarantee any appointments PLEASE NOTE: The camping facility is located on our private winery and vineyard.   This is a production facility and not a public facility.   Our public tasting room is located in downtown Paso Robles (829 13th Street). To schedule private tastings at the winery (on the campground), please contact us in advance. We require at least a 48 hour notice for tasting. We can also provide cheese pairings at an additional cost. Please be respectful as the owner lives on site. Children are OK at our site, but please keep in mind that they must be included in the total number of your party and must be under supervision at all times.   We are a working vineyard and winery.  We do our best to make sure your visit is as comfortable as possible, but sporadically we will have tractors and trucks working in and around the vineyard and winery especially around Harvest Time (September - November).  We will notify you about any activity we forsee during your visit.

Irish Creek Camp

Rolling hills with one horse and on the property plus seasonal pond (usually lasts until July 15th +/-). Tons of wildlife. Many campsite locations with views plus endless camping options in the 57+ acres of woods. The surrounding area boasts a rich history from being a prominent area during the gold rush. We also have a host dog- Andy, she belongs to a neighbor but visits all Campers. The Camper's say the stars are the difference, many just set in the open and watch the night sky. RV potential- only two spaces with electric and water. Several guests have visited with 28' trailers; smaller campers are easy; several non listed sites possible. Lots to do in the area including hiking; ale trail; wine tasting; the American River is near and provides rafting and swimming later in the season. later in the Season.

Madrone Tree Hill

Camp under the stars in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains. (RV's/trailers - DO NOT BOOK UNTIL YOU HAVE READ THE PARAGRAPH BELOW. ) This 50-acre family-owned property is located in the heart of Apple Hill. There are two streams that run through it, with a hill that separates them. It is a working Christmas tree farm that was started in the 1960s and now has many trees that are too big to fit in anyone's home but provide an unbelievable canopy for some of our campsites. Half the property is covered in a pine forest (with some secluded campsites) with the balance being Christmas trees, Manzanita brush, Madrone trees, and open areas (for larger group campers). There are trails throughout the property for visitors to enjoy. There is an Apple Farm across the street that makes the best donuts in Apple Hill! Less than a mile away is a farm brewery and there are wineries throughout the area. There is also a large lake nearby that is a favorite for local kayak and canoe enthusiasts (and some who enjoy fishing) since most non-locals don't know it exists.    Campsites 1 - 14 are centrally located at the top of the hill, sites 15 - 25 are more remote (& quieter) but are also farther from the bathrooms & potable water supplies.   (Site 25 is in a tight forest where slender pine trees rub against each other; if there's any wind, they make sounds akin to wooden ships rubbing up against the docks in a harbor.  NOTE: The site numbering has changed for 2020 as we have added 5 more sites.   Therefore, a site you stayed in previously may now have a different number and past comments regarding these specific sites may no longer be accurate and could refer to a different site.   Please ask me if you have any questions. )   If you are traveling in a group, we suggest getting two sites next to each other rather than trying to squeeze everyone into a single site - it's actually less expensive to rent two sites with 5 people each rather than putting 10 people into a single site.   Site pairs that work well together are 1&2, 4&6, 3&5 and 9&12, (We also have areas specifically for larger groups. Please see our Hipcamp group site listing. ) RV's & TRAILER's- Please note, there are currently only a few furnished campsites that can accommodate these - sites 3, 4, 8, 10, 16, and site 18.   If your RV is longer than 34 feet, please let me know so that we can make sure that we can get you to fit.   Please note, there are NO HOOKUPS.   However, potable water is accessible when you arrive - please bring a long hose to make filling easier.    (If you have a group of RV's and are looking to all camp together, please check out our RV Hilltop listing. )  NO MORE THAN ONE RV PER SITE. CAMPFIRE NOTE: Firepits with a grill & mesh cover are provided at every site.   All fires must be contained in the fire pit.   Open (or uncovered) campfires (on the ground) are prohibited.   CAMPFIRES ARE ONLY ALLOWED IN THE COVERED FIRE PITS.  Please keep the fire pit covered when in use and always fully extinguish your fire when you leave the campsite.    You may collect dead wood to burn from the property, but please bring a handsaw to cut up pieces so they will fit into the fire pit. Please include all individuals in your booking headcount including all children over the age of 1 year old. Be sure to bring flashlights and lanterns, it does get dark at night!

Tent Camp with Goats

Angeles Crest Creamery is a working goat dairy on 70 private acres in the Angeles National Forest. Our camp site is a natural clearing in unimproved wilderness and does not include a tent or any other equipment with the exception of a picnic table---please bring your own gear. If the ground is wet from recent rain or snow, 4WD may be required to access the camp site. Hiking in is also an option. The site is about 5 minutes walk from the road up into the forest, and very private.  During your stay you are welcome to help us with the goats during chores. We will even give you a milking lesson if you'd like to try it! If you don't want to miss milking, we suggest a 2 night stay, since we sometimes milk in the afternoon or skip a day.  Bring your own food or pre-order ranch goodies for delivery to the camp site. Offerings are seasonal--we will send you a list the week before your stay.  Although we can't accommodate trailers / RVs at this particular camp site, we can in other areas of the property. If you'd like tow your own accommodation onto the ranch, please inquire.  Sorry, no campfires, no exceptions. Cooking with propane camp stoves only.

Private beach access from our property. We have a barnyard with a multitude of farm animals. Limited electricity in greenhouse (A couple of extension chords). The fire ban is ONLY for open campfires. The pizza oven and YOUR bbq or propane flame is fine.   *****LOOK***** BE ADVISED, at times, the property has events with upwards of 100 people.

It's an antique after all!

Ranchito Feliz

Due to the strange world we now live in. . . talking about only the virus, I am asking all campers to avoid each other at the "Poo Place" and the dish washing station.   As much as I would like to, I will not shake your hand when I meet you and we will do our social distancing.   Sorry. In the middle of the Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument; adjacent to Bryce Canyon National Park; within walking distance of Kodachrome Basin State Park; and an easy drive to Zion and Capital Reef National Parks, as well as Lake Powell National Recreational Area, this unique site is an opportunity not to miss. This is MST so adjust your clocks if needed.  The pet/horse friendly property (approximately 9 acres/3 ha/64 sq. m) and is welcoming to all folks/types of families, and boasts five private designated single tent sites, one group tent site, two car camping sites. The equestrians will find a two-acre pasture, three paddocks, a round pen, as well as beautiful places to ride from the ranch. No arrivals after sunset (check MST and MDT times for the large variations in those sunset timings). This is a meet and greet campground. Sites will be selected for you. All children count (sorry, all about the poops) as campers, and must be added as additional guests. ***There are no specific site numbers; all sites are tent sites but larger RVs/trailers can be accommodated on a limited basis (-RV max. lengths: Trailer- 20ft. /7m, 5th Wheel- 25ft. /8m, Standard RV- 24ft. /7. 3m) Check in with Host (on foot) prior to RV arrival for your site assignment!*** Leave rig at the gate. ***There is only one location for an RV and one location for a trailer, the rest are sites designed for folks who drive or walk in and have a tent. You must arrive before sundown Utah time for check in!This secluded location has a small town of about 75 (Cannonville) three miles/5 k distant where there is a small store with gas, and a Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument Visitor Center. And, bonus, this campground has a shower (cold camp shower), fire rings, potable water, a place to wash dishes or clean fish, and cell phone service is getting better. The ranch is an off the grid, passive/active solar voltaic, so no electricity.   Firewood can be purchased at the ranch or in Tropic. The views are spectacular from any site where the xeroscaped landscape uses indigenous material and plants to complement the quintessential Pinyon/Juniper ecosystem the campground sits in. On three sides you are surrounded by red cliffs in the Carmel Formation which can give shelter from wind and sun, but campers can also look out over the Paria River (you can hear the river from camp as well as its amphibians) which runs south in front of the property and eventually meets the Colorado River at Lee’s Ferry where most put-in to raft the Grand Canyon. Looking north, one sees the meaning of the term “Grand Staircase” by viewing The Entrada, Tropic Shale, Straight Cliffs, Wahweap, Kaiparowits, and Pink Limestone Formations capped by late Tertiary Volcanism; or, the “steps” of Promise Rock, Sand Point, Powell Point, and the Aquarius Plateau (highest forested mesa in North America at over eleven thousand feet. ). The biological diversity here is also astounding, the (*) might indicate alarming:Birds: 125 species and counting including the tiny Costa’s Humming Bird all the way up to the enormous California Condor. Plants: 2 species of Sagebrush, 4 species of trees, numerous grass species, and a plethora of beautiful wildflowers and cacti. *Reptiles: Many species of snakes and lizards. Unfortunately, this includes the occasional rattlesnake. It is advised that you have your pets vaccinated. Amphibians: Toads and SalamandersMammals: Predators-Lions, Coyotes, Bobcats, & Badgers. Ungulates-Elk, Deer & Pronghorn. Rodents-Lots of those!*Insects: There are very few mosquitoes. There are a few biting Deer Flies, and worse yet, those damn gnats. These “no-see-ums” are temperature dependent so are not a bother in the cool shade, early mornings, late evenings and at night. It is recommended that you bring some kick ass insect repellent and a “bee hat” if you are out and about in the sun during the day between May and July. Fossils: Bivalves, snails, petrified wood (many types) and various other corals, insects and plant fossils abound and are often incorporated into the ranch infrastructure. The nearby area is considered the hottest paleontological spot on the planet. Astronomy: The area is widely considered to be under the darkest skies in the lower 49. The Milky Way and Persieds are common sights without the unsightly annoyance of any neighbor’s lights. The climate is varied and interesting. All four seasons are here and occasionally all in one day. Winter snows melt quickly though temperatures can dip into the sub-zeros. The 5,900 ft. /1800 m. elevation keeps the summer temps reasonable and always gives a chilly summer evening to cool things off. If you want climatic extremes, you can, within an hour or so, be at Lake Powell and its 100+ F/38+ C heat or on the Aquarius Plateau at 65 degrees F/18 C in midday June. Recreation on many levels is all within proximity. From canyoneering (many close and amazing slot canyons, both technical and casual) , “free” climbing (both trad and sport) on an established nearby crag composed of a welded tuff capping the Aquarius Plateau (see Mountain Project for "The Jungle on the Aquarius Plateau") and many aid lines on Entrada/Navaho Formation towers within walking distance (see Mountain Project for "The Grand Staircase" ), water sports of Lake Powell and the Colorado River as well as fishing in the cool temps of Pine Lake 35 minutes distant. Then of course, there is the Monument, National Park and the State Park only a short drive away. Seclusion, security, water, and views all within minutes to spectacular destinations, makes this worth the stop.

Mountain Top Campsite

Pitch your tent in the middle of our 450 acre farm, in our peach and apple orchard. You have access to a fire pit, applewood (sold in bundles at ourfarm market), and a picnic table. A beautiful, secluded site to bring friends to enjoy this beautiful location. As we are a working farm, you can see us driving through with our tractors or maintaining the orchard around your campsite on occasion. . You are welcome to ride your bikes, hike or jog where you will pass ponds and a working farm landscape. PLEASE don’t pick our fruit. This is a very big no no.   If you would like to enjoy the fruits of our labor please come down to our farm store, open year round, on the premises where we sell cheeses, fresh picked fruit and veggies, meats, and our famous cider donuts along with other farm products.

Naked Falls

* Due to unpredictability of rain, I no longer deliver firewood to the individual sites, you can pick it up from a conveniently located woodshed where it stays dry.  Just message me for the access code if you add firewood as an extra. This is easy car access to a raw outdoor camping experience. You will be camping next to the crystal clear Washougal River and have access to Naked Falls and Reeder Falls. The camping area is on the East side of the river.   Come prepared as the nearest potable water source is at least a mile away and you won't see any lights or electrical outlets on the property.   There is a portable toilet now between sites 4 and 5 on the east side of the road.   Also, please remember that I don't live there and there is limited service on the property. If you have questions, please contact me in advance as I may be unreachable when you arrive at the property. If you are not familiar with the area, or even if you haven't camped there before, I recommend contacting me for directions or information about the area before you go up.   Also, if you have an RV, you will want to contact me to discuss which site you really want to book depending on the size of your RV, awnings, slide outs, etc.   Each booked site is allowed 2 cars or 1 RV.   If you have more than 2 cars or 1 RV, there is a fee of 10. 00 per additional vehicle.   The Campsites go in the order they appear as you drive through the campground.   There are signs with the site numbers next to each site.   The sites each have their own parking spaces. Please see the brief descriptions below so you have a good idea of what kind of experience you can expect at each site. Site 1: Saltness CreekThis is the only site with direct trail access to the river on the camping side.   It's also right on a creek and encompasses a corner of the confluence of the creek and the Washougal River.   It's a nice open space right off the gravel road which allows you to park right by where you will set up tents and have your campfire.   It also means other campers will drive right by your site and they will need to pass by it to take the trail to the river.  This site is very convenient but not very private. Site 2: Naked FallsThere is a short narrow trail that leads to the campsite on the Naked Falls cliff.  It's awesome!  This is the original campsite at Naked Falls and has likely been there for 100 years or more.  It overlooks the waterfall and island downstream.   It's really the coolest campsite but it's not for everybody.   The area for pitching tents is smaller than at the other sites.   Only 2 medium sized tents will fit comfortably.   You may be able to cram 3 tents in but should be aware that it's only really meant for 2.  Groups larger than 6 may want to consider another site.  Also, it is right on the cliff where people like to jump so, while you have the best view of all the fun stuff happening at the falls, you also have cliff divers coming up to say hi during the day. Site 3: Desk JobThis site is just past the falls.  It has a wide short trail to the camping area and a beautiful view of the river that passes right by the site about 30 ft below it.   It is nice, quiet and secluded. Site 4: Middle ManagementThis site is nice for pulling vehicles in and around.   It loops around some trees in the center.   The trees to the east and North are all alders so it has limited shade in the morning when there aren't leaves on the trees (winter and early spring)  The trail down is wide and short.  There is a small opening with a nice view of the river and it's quiet.   A great place to listen to the flow of the river and the beat of your heart.   Site 5: Conference RoomThe Conference Room is tucked into the woods a little more than the other sites.   It's right over the river just like all the rest of the sites but the trees like living on that cliff. . . like a whole bunch.   You can walk to the edge and see the river but it's not the most open view of the river.  I love this site.  It has two old growth stumps from the first harvest ever at Naked Falls.   They tell stories of the Yacolt burn and a lot of hard winters.   A short narrow trail get's you from your car to to the camping area in about 20 steps. Site 6: Printer JamThis site is quite large and has the most extensive view of the river.   Great for bigger groups or bigger tents.  This is a chill spot where you can roast marshmallows while watching the flow of the Washougal River 35 ft below. Site 7: Budget MeetingThis site is not meant for vehicle traffic!  Please do not drive your vehicle onto the site as that has caused damage to the site itself and it needs to recover. The last site on the road has the longest walk. . . about 50 yards.   It is also a large space and is the most secluded.   It's the longest distance from river access but also the most private.  The walk down passes an old growth tree that must have fallen decades ago.  It has a huge base and the root structure is about 12 ft tall.  There are a variety of trees that hug this campsite.   If you don't mind the walk, you are sure to dig the vibe at our version of a Budget Meeting. Site 8: The Slash PilePlease read this full description before booking.   I'm giving this site a go because I think it's a rather unique experience for the right people.   This site sits up above all the other sites.   It is not on a river but has a river view and view of all the other campsites.   It is surrounded by a slash pile which is the wood debris left over from logging.   You can drive right to it but only if you have 4wd/AWD.   The road is also surrounded by alder trees that might slap the side of your car as you go up so if you are concerned about that, this is not the spot for you.   There is not much shade up there either.   You may want to bring a shade tent.   The site is fairly large and has plenty of room for tents but I don't recommend any trailers or RVs here due to the steep rocky road.   Your walk to the river will be about as long as the walk from site 7.   It will be an easy walk down and a bit of a trek up.   If no one books this site, I will totally understand but It's a cool spot if you are cool with the challenges it presents. Site 9: Hard Scramble CreekThis site is embedded in the woods and has the most tree cover.  It is even further from the river access than site 8. . . about a half mile walk.  There is plenty of room but only one way in and out so turning around should be thought out before you set up your tents.  Also, I've seen people pull off trailering large rigs up there but I'm pretty sure it was painstaking.  If you have a large RV or Trailer, I would skip this site.   Smaller trailers and RVs should be fine if you have some experience and patience.   This site is quiet and the sound of the creek is soothing during the day and night.   Site: 10 Rock Beach WoodsThis site is in the woods along the river near an inviting rock beach that flows into a crystal clear swimming hole.  This site is not behind a gate and day use visitors are allowed to use the trail and access the rock beach.   The rock beach gets less traffic than we have right by Naked Falls but it is part of the day use area.   This is a park and walk site.  Parking is along the main road and you hike in about 50 yards to the campsite. This is one of the coolest campsites we have.  Literally cooler as it is along the river edge and not along a cliffside like most of the other sites.  Also cooler because it is under deep tree cover with soft mossy terrain.   If you like the sounds of the river, shady woods and very close access to swimming, you will love this site!Site: 11 This One Goes to Eleven!Situated on the top of the hill, this site has the most impressive views of all the sites!  About a 270 degree view of the surrounding mountain region give you a great vantage point that often includes eagles flying below you, elk across the valley and a variety of other wildlife.  This site is the farthest from the river, civilization and all the other campsites.  If you are looking for something remote and have a 4wd/AWD vehicle, this might be the best site for you.

Itty Bitty Lakes Campground

We are opening this season very carefully because of the Covid 19 virus. We are spreading our campers out so you have more space to distance yourselves from your neighbors. We are only hosting family units, therefore we will be accepting only half the number of reservations at this time than we normally do. You will all need to observe social distancing rules. The art gallery/ office is not yet open. We will meet you outside when you arrive.  Access to the showerhouse will be limited to one person or family in the bathroom/shower at a time. Itty Bitty Lakes is an old fashioned campground on Highway 50 and the Arkansas River in Bighorn Sheep Canyon. The canyon opens out to be a small valley bordered by the Sangre de Cristo Mountains peaking at over 13,000 feet to the immediate south, the wild Arkansas River, then cliffs and smaller mountains to the north.   Nestled in the Valley is the village of Coaldale, established in 1878. The Coaldale Post Office is at the east end of Itty Bitty Lakes. Itty Bitty Lakes was a state fish hatchery in the 1930s. The formal campground with full hookups was added some 70 years ago. We are no longer allowing trailers or motorhomes. They simply do not fit our elderly facilities.  Down on the river, some of the old raceways are now wetland habitats filled with wildflowers and small birds all summer. Beside these wetlands are several more primitive camping sites along the river. Huge 70-year-old Mountain Elms and Peach Leaf Willows shade the entire property. Rocky Mountain Junipers are scattered throughout. In the center of the property is the Juniper Art Gallery. This is also the campground office. The owners, Robert and Kay Parker, are artists. The building also houses painting, sculpture and weaving studios, as well as the Parker home. On the west side of the property are two old ponds with massive Peach Leaf Willows hanging over the banks. This part of the property is great for group camping and for small intimate campsites nearest the ponds and close to and above the river. Near the center and at the entrance to the formal campground is the shower house bathroom . This facility is open for all our guests. it is old, but we just tiled the two showers.  It is clean, and the water is pure and hot.   It has 2 toilets, a sink and 2  tiled showers. We are using a family unit system  (one family unit in at a time) with outside chairs if folks need to wait their turn. Several rafting guides spend the summer with us.   They will have their own toilet, shower and kitchen facilities to keep you safe.  They are with Arkansas River Tours, one of the oldest and most respected rafting companies in Colorado.   If you decide to raft with them we offer a 10% discountYou will receive 10% off anything in our beautiful art gallery when it opens on June 1. Open fires are always subject to current county and state fire restrictions.   We don't want our forests and homes going up in flames.  Oh, I forgot to tell you that you will be sharing the property with one donkey (she loves carrots and apples). Wild ducks and geese are also often on our ponds. Itty Bitty Lakes is a songbird sanctuary, so we have many nesting birds in our trees. We are now a tenting campground onlyEach of our sites is unique. Our river sites are the most popular but they are limited. The river sites have no electricity and will only accommodate tenters.   We book these on a first reserve basis.   There are some pond sites. These also do not have hook-ups. They will also now accommodate only tents, .   We have some sites that are near the highway (behind a fence). We do not place folk in these sites unless all of our other sites are filled. So if you book late  you will probably be placed near the highway. We also have a group site. It is next to the ponds and over the river. It is under huge peach leaf willows. It has charcoal grills, picnic tables, extra chairs, a fire pit and tiki lanterns. We can have multiple tents there. The site has its own parking area and there is a short walk over two small bridges for access.  Group site pricing is alway tailored to individual group dynamics. We close at 8PM. If you arrive after 8 we can not accommodate you for that evening.

Ariel Creekside

Camp out on the bank of Speelyai Creek in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Only two miles from two huge lakes (Merwin and Yale) great for kayaking, paddle boarding, and fishing. Try your hand at spelunking with a short 15 minute drive to the Ape Caves. Also plenty of hiking and sightseeing around Gifford Pinchot National Forest with amazing views of Mount St. Helens! Only an hour drive from Portland and two and a half from Seattle. There are two tent campsites on the property. They are both down a short trail from the upper gravel parking area. Your gear will need to be carried down and back out. Potable well water is available. There is a small porta-potty down the hill to use which is cleaned and emptied during your stay. Each tent campsite has seating, a hammock, and stone fire ring. Out of the sites, Site 1 is the larger and most spacious of the two. Larger parties will be given priority access to Site 1, but typically it is first come first serve. I will try my best to accommodate everyone upon check-in. As mentioned by many of our previous campers, the property is located right next to State Route 503 which isn't overly busy, but it is constant and can get noisy. When you walk down to the campsites the noise is significally reduced and almost completely drowned out by sound of the creek, birds, and frogs!It should also be noted that our two sites are close together and both are 100% kid-friendly! We welcome families with all age groups so if you would prefer to enjoy a quieter stay you might consider booking both sites and having the entire grounds to ensure a peaceful retreat.

WagMore (site #1--Valley View)

Just off scenic Highway 1, WagMore is a 63 acre property, 10 minutes from the quaint harbor town of Morro Bay and 15 minutes from Montana de Oro.   WagMore Site #1 is a primitive camp situated on an oak covered hillside, overlooking farmland and the Chorro Creek River valley.   From the site, guests can explore the property and enjoy hiking, wildlife and scenery. The terrain and road are best suited for tents, vans/campers, and SMALL trailers/RVs (to pull a trailer up the hill you will need plenty of power or 4x4).   Although the road is rough, a two-wheel drive vehicle can make it--I drive my minivan up it all the time, and we've had a multitude of Prius' make the trip! We do NOT recommend large RVs or 5th-wheels of any size because of the overhead clearance and narrow road.  In Morro Bay just up the highway, visitors can enjoy beaches, fishing, boating, whale watching, surfing and SUP. Nearby Montana de Oro offers fantastic mountain biking and hiking. Also, the southern part of Big Sur is day tripping distance up Highway 1 from the camp where visitors will find spectacular scenery and hiking. Our happiest campers are those who prefer privacy and closeness with nature over a lot of amenities.
