Very relaxing night and morning camping! It’s a beautiful area, lots of trees. The campsites are quite close to each other, but some of them are separated by these really cool white woods and there was no one else there. So it was nice and private! You can hear the highway noise since it’s right there but it didn’t really matter. The stars at night are beautiful, you can hear birds, and it’s very quiet otherwise. And it was easy to find the campsites, they have big red number signs for each one.

With state park campsites closed this was a perfect alternative and great location. Nestled back in the cottonwoods with a stream. Worked for what we needed

Beautiful property! I pictured the campsite being a little further away from the busy main road and other sites, but other than that it was a great place to stay. :)

Nice spot to camp and not too far from Julian or Mt. Laguna and the host was super helpful and easy to communicate with. Loved hearing the running creek next to me as I drifted off to sleep and the stars were super beautiful and bright. Camping spaces are nicely spaced, perfectly flat to set up a tent and come with a fire pit and a picnic table. And they are dog friendly, too! Since you’re in the valley you have a gorgeous view of the mountains everywhere you look.

Only things future campers should be aware of is the sound of the highway as you are right next to it, gnats/little flying buggies that show up once the sun came out in the morning, and the slight smell of the earthy mildly stinky (sorry) creek water (obviously totally outside the host’s control).

For the location, scenery, and price - I would definitely stay again. :-)

Banner Ranch was a great experience to stay near Julian! Great location nestled away from the buzz of town, but still close by. Great access to hiking spots. Unfortunately no toilet available when we went, so be warned. The toilets were a little far from us anyhow. Do not recommend arriving at night because it was very hard for us to find our site. Also no access to water at site, so bring your own. Highway is right nearby so bring ear plugs if you are a light sleeper. Otherwise, a beautiful experience and the trees were so gorgeous!!

I would stay here again however with updated information. There is not pottable water, it is brown water at the faucets that did work. I wouldn’t clean or boil this water. The actual site was nice, we stayed at T4, but the highway is right there. This didn’t bug us at all. Also the host communicated well up until the day we arrived, no communication/response about the water situation when calling or emailing. So we had to drive 15 minutes to nearest city to get more water. The bathroom was clean and again the sites are spacious.

The accommodations provided at the site were not as expected. There was one portable potty for all tent and RV sites. The available potable water was discolored. The contact number that was provided was disconnected. The host was responsive to text messages.

There was no running water, no bathrooms, no picnic table on my campsite and I did not feel safe. Some people took over one of the sites that I reserved and they decided to have a bund fire which it was not allowed. No one seemed to be checking.
