If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
Staying here was absolutely amazing! I messaged the host, Robin, to ask some questions before I made a reservation. I was their first ever hipcamper; Robin made my camping site ready even before I booked the stay. He answered all my silly questions with patience and in detail.
I arrived at Robin's in the evening and stayed until the next day's evening. Upon arrival, he took me on a tour of their property and showed me how to get around and where everything is (this is a HUGE property). He even made it possible for me to be on an online meeting in a quite spot, on a bench across his house and gave me the wifi password! So, so accommodating.
The hill itself is... absolutely STUNNING!! You won't know until you hike up the hill and look back. You can see the city and enormous mountains in the background. Some even had snow on it, it was beautiful! I stayed on "site 1" which had the perfect panoramic view. It was everything I could ask for. The morning was just breathtaking: I woke up to the sound of hundreds of birds chirping and singing; that and the fog made it oh so magical...
It's a short but steep hike up to site 1 which I didn't mind, but next time I'll definitely bring less stuff to carry. Robin mentioned he's working on a less steep hike to the site. There was a [brilliant] composting toilet inside a little wooden hut that is private and out of anyone's sight. To get to the water you need to hike down the hill a bit. I had plenty of water though so I never actually used it.
There are plenty of trails on and off the property for hiking and exploring. I stayed inside the property and just relaxed, read, and enjoyed the views and the quiet+privacy. I was the only camper this weekend and so I had the whole mountain to myself! Pretty crazy!
Robin was so considerate of my needs. I visited alone (along with my dog) and he did everything possible to make sure I feel safe. He even brought up an old-fashioned gas stove and lantern for me to use for no extra cost! He taught me how to use both and they came in handy when I wanted to boil water for some tea. I felt so safe even though I was alone in the "wild"!
This was the perfect place for me and my dog- who really enjoyed running around the property and exploring things. I love that he could be off-leash. I still kept him close to me though, since there are coyotes around.
I also love how close this place is to my home; it's just a 30-50m drive based on traffic, making it the perfect weekend getaway to be away from the city and all its craziness.
Robin is the best host I've had; he's just so sweet and welcoming.
I highly recommend staying here and I will be coming back, probably many more times and with friends!
Great getaway close to the westside
Only 35 minutes from the Westside of LA. This beautiful flower covered hillside campground was great fun for the whole family. Campsite 2 where we stayed has room for 2 tents, a picnic table and viewing area for the fold out chairs with amazing views of the Sundland valley and the National forest beyond.
The host Robin was so welcoming setting up a pop up tent over our picnic table, bringing our heavy cooler up the hill to our campsite, even getting out a craft for my kids to enjoy
For people who like sipping wine with million dollar views of the city lights on a budget, this is the place for you
Slip away, slow down, and snuggle
It was a last minute decision to go camping and as usual all the campgrounds around were already booked. Then I came across this little gem. Convenience to get there was just the first perk. Robin and his wife being incredible hosts brought the second star to this rating. The ability to get away from the city as well as the internet, to slow it all down, roam free with our dog off leash, and snuggle up underneath the cool night sky, made this last minute adventure unforgettable.
We had an amazing time at this beautiful spot. Thank you Robin and his sweet family for sharing their beautiful property with us for the weekend. We were at site 3 which was a short steep walk but so beautiful.
Beautiful camping experience
Stayed two nights here, wish it was longer. We enjoyed gorgeous views both day and night of the bustling valley from this scenic hillside site. Robin was a great host and met us on arrival. This was a great alternative way to experience the LA area for those who enjoy camping.
Robin was a fun gracious host, taking the time to show me around and talk about our goals and dreams on a personal level. Austin's Perch was a really fun site to camp at with great views of the foothills below. I'll see you next time!
