Main Stage Left Camp and Main Stage Right Camp are located in our concert bowl where we usually put the Main Stage. The concert bowl is beautifully maintained, grassy, and flat. Each of these sites have access to electricity (standard 110 outlet). 

Black Oak Ranch has hosted music festivals on our beautiful 150 acre property for almost 30 years, including The Hog Farm Pignic, Earthdance, The Kate Wolf Music Festival, and the inaugural Hog Farm Hideaway scheduled for next year. Conveniently located just off of Highway 101 in Mendocino County, Black Oak Ranch is home to majestic old oak trees, leafy bay groves, and Ten Mile Creek which is perfect for cooling off on hot summer days. Black Oak Ranch has an abundance of wildlife including deer, raptors, and our newest residents, a couple of families of beavers! Please note: our property is conveniently located just off of Highway 101 and you will hear noise from the highway.

Campsites are on flat terrain. Campsites have shade most or all of the day. The creek is a short walk away from each campsite. Please plan on making your site your own by bringing your own setups, gas-powered camp stoves, etc. We will provide a 6' table and some folding chairs to get you started. We suggest bringing a festive table cover. No wood or charcoal fires or BBQs due to high fire danger. Gas fire bowls are allowed as long as they are not placed on grass (we can help you place them). All bathrooms are port-o-lets. We do not offer showers at this time. Ten Mile creek is great for wading and some parts of the creek are swimmable depending on the time of year. Note: Depending on how much rain we get in the winter Ten Mile Creek can be quite dry late in the summer. Feel free to inquire about the status of the creek. Kids 12 and under are free.

Camped with a large group here to finally be able to get together after COVID restrictions opened up.

Biasha was great and prompt on answering my questions. Our group was large (>20) and everything turned out fantastic! The Main Stage and BOB camps worked out perfectly. The ranch was easy to find and some of the group enjoyed exploring the creek.

There was plenty of shade under the trees for camping as well.

We had a great stay at the main stage camp site! We were a family with three young kids in a camper trailer in addition to some friends with two extra tents. Camp site was nice and clean, had a table with four chairs, trash can, porta potties and water supply close. We also had a power outlet for our camper. Nice distance to the other camp sites and walking distance to a nice little creek where we hanged all day long. Host was nice and easy to communicate with. On site host for help if needed. Very satisfied with our stay!

Beautiful, private location. You won't find a camp spot in California more convenient and accessible and yet private with minimal noise from other campers. Close proximity to a mellow swimming hole was perfect on a hot day with our 4 year old. Can't wait to come back!

Staying at Black Oak Ranch (Event center/Private Camping) was unique and enjoyable! After reserving online, Biasha (facility host) gave me a call to provide clear directions to the facility and what to expect when we arrived. Super personable and helpful. This is a large site with grassy areas to camp. We enjoyed our short stay and appreciated the warm (and Covid safe) welcome from the onsite staff, Ray & Nate.

Beautiful location, the star gazing was spectacular, campsite nicely spaced out. Everything was well thought out to reduce the risk of Covid. Kids loved the water and all of the yummy black berries. Would definately rent again.

What an amazing stay! Beautiful property, awesome swimming on the campsite and around the area. So peaceful! The camp is spread out and very safe for social distancing as compared to state/ national park sites. The veggie/ flower box was out of this world amazing! So much food to eat! I loved staying here. Thank you so much, I have no complaints what so ever.

The Camp Host this weekend was Rey. (And Nate) Rey was friendly and welcoming. We felt that if we needed anything he would help. I highly recommend Black Oak Ranch!

We found this facility last minute when our reservations at Hendy Woods State Park were abruptly cancelled because of a water main break in the campground. Absolute Seredipity!

The Black Oak Ranch land is primarily set up for music festivals and large events; but now during downtime it offers 12 secluded camping spots, each with what seems to be it’s very own freshly serviced porta-pottie with hand sanitizer. I am not sure if that is the actual plan, but at the very least there is a plethora of nice and clean porta-potties available along with potable water. A large fire extinguisher is provided at each campsite. Campfires are not allowed which is prudent and typical for California this time of year, but gas fire bowls are welcome. It is all very well thought out. As the name suggests, the riparian terrain is covered with majestic, Spanish moss-bedecked, centuries-old black oaks. There were numerous limpid swimming holes in the creek the land boarders even though it is the dry season here. The creek must be spectacular in the late spring. Frogs, dragonflies, and butterflies are ubiquitous. Exquisite stargazing! And the place has a mellow hippy vibe which is totally our scene. Finally, the COVID protocols implemented were appropriate, mindful, and reassuring.

The only possible critique would be one can hear the traffic from Hwy 101 which sandwiches the land between the creek, but it really was not a big issue for us. And as is typical for most Hipcamp sites, the price one pays for major solitude is having to travel to any major hiking trails, although the acreage at Black Oak Ranch was plenty large for wandering about.

We will definitely be returning to this one! I suspect it will go “High Demand” quickly.
