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.

Amazing beyond our goatiest dreams!
Gloria and Christian provided us with one of the best weekends we've ever had! They were super generous and welcoming, knowledgable about all things goat, and all-around very nice.
The site was beautiful, very quiet and with lots of privacy. It was truly a privilege to be able to follow the goats on their mountain walks all day, then sit and hang with hem around the barn. We also got to meet the 4 beautiful dogs keeping the herd safe, 2 lovely horses, and 1 funny pig.
The farm groceries we bought from Gloria and Christian to take home were super fresh and delicious. We also got the taco kit one night during our stay, which was very tasty.
This was a unique experience that I definitely recommend to anyone who loves goats, nature, and a quick (from LA) & peaceful getaway. We will most certainly be back to visit the herd and restock our fridge!
A great goat escape!
Our reason for staying at Angeles Crest Creamery was simple: Hang out with some cute goats and retreat from the hustle bustle of LA. We came away with so much more! We’ve discovered a real gem here; An unforgettable experience full of learning and inspiration. We stayed in one of the airstreams which was comfortable, well kept, and stocked with some great goat-related reading and films. The delicious farm fresh goodies we ordered were also a highlight of our stay. Gloria and Christian generously gave of their time to tell us stories about the beginnings of the ranch, their life journey, and acquainted us with many of the amazing goat personalities that roam the land. They’ve built this special place with love, care, a passion for sustainability and healthy living. We made many new two and four legged friends during our stay and look forward to visiting them all again soon. xo Bill & MB
A unique and fun experience!
We had a great time staying at Angeles Crest Creamery! The scenery was beautiful, and we had a fun time interacting with the goats and learning more about the farm. All of the food was amazing-- we tried the goat taco kit, goat milk, goat cheese, caramel, and eggs. The airstream was clean and well maintained. I'd highly recommend this site.
Gloria and Christian are such amazing hosts!!! We had the best weekend. Christian spent time with us and our 5 year old and taught us how to milk the goats. It was a magical weekend and we will absolutely be back!
Most peaceful camping trip
One of the most peaceful places we've been in a long time! There's something about this land. Maybe it's the goats, turkeys, horses that are all so calm and friendly. Maybe it's the quiet, the stars, the lake, the trees. Whatever it is, it's paradise for us. We felt safe to let our kids roam free (they were mostly with the goats and the 4 big, white Great Pyrenees livestock guardian dogs all day). We all fell in love with the baby goats, I mean, there's nothing cuter or softer. This exceeded all of our expectations. Thank you for sharing your slice of heaven, Gloria!
We stayed at the campsite for one night and overall, had a good experience. We were looking for a quick, quiet, little getaway from the city and that's what we got here. It was very cold (our gallon water froze overnight) and windy but that's what we expected camping in March. The ranch and all the animals, especially the dogs, were beautiful. We recommend it!
Connecting with kind animals.
It was refreshing to be able to engage with the animals freely without time restraints. The hosts food was spectacular!!!! The kids were safe being free and we had beautiful hikes around the land. We will go back when it’s warmer! We also love how close it is to LA and yet not crowded.
