We had the most amazing time. Ellyn was fantastic. The property is so well designed and beautifully thought out. It feels like home even though you're right in the middle of this vast desert landscape. Incredible trails right from where you are sleeping. And once you're out there, its so remote and special, you're just by yourself.
If you have an opportunity to spend a few days at Ellyn's spot, you absolutely must. We were her first campers, and felt safe and excited the second she spoke to us on the phone. The property itself is so private and secluded, and you are able to use all her facilities (fire pit, full bathroom, etc.).
WATCHING THE STARS AT NIGHT WAS SO RIDICULOUSLY BEAUTIFUL. We didn't want to fall asleep! But had to try so that we could wake up before the sunrise. 3 nights was great but really not enough for us. We will be returning.
Ellyn was much more than a host, she's someone you want as a friend. She is so thoughtful about everything and ensures that her guests are as comfortable as possible. She loves good conversation and meeting good people. Highly recommend.

Ellyn, was a really great host that made my daughter and I feel very welcome. Close to a camping experience with a comfortable rugged feel, but without the hassles of camping since we didn’t need to bring most equipment. Also the bathroom situation is much nicer than camping.
My 9 year old said the highlights were the stars, the fire and the s’mores. It was a nice couple of days just to disconnect and mostly off the grid.

What a wonderful desert experience. Everything exceeded my expectations. First off, Ellyn is super welcoming and accommodating. The site is well put together, clean, private and super cool with the retro trailers. I felt very safe. The quiet of the desert is an experience in and of itself. And the stars-WOW!!!

An awesome time! We loved staying on Ellyn’s land. The trailer was clean and comfy for us and our 2 kids. We were able to cook and had our own bathroom. The property is gorgeous and so quiet. Ellyn was warm, considerate and helpful. There is lots of hiking nearby and we enjoyed some gorgeous drives to other areas of Anza Borrego. Our kids are now in love with Ellyn’s dog!

We’re new to glamping and this was our first time using Hipcamp. We were referred to Ellyn H’s land by a friend as a place where we could safely enjoy the peace and quiet of the desert, it’s understated beauty, and getting close to nature and star-filled nights. We loved it! Nestled between Anza Borrego State Park and the Cleveland National Forest in eastern San Diego County, Elly H’s Land has the right combination of accommodations (charming, comfortable vintage trailers), proximity to nature and open space, and a helpful, knowledgeable, and passionate host. Ellyn H knows the area very well and took pride in all she did to make our stay in the Avion and Homie a fun one. We wouldn’t hesitate to come back again and we highly recommend it.

It was a wonderful and more than expected glamping experience at your place. The Avion was just perfect size for us to celebrate my birthday in this middle of nowhere desert area.
Our time was full of comfort, wonders of views and the desert landscape has to offer. Super awesome and definitely will come back😀

After nearly a year of quarantining at home, a 3 day weekend outdoors was just what we needed. Ellyn and John and their sweet dog were fabulous hosts. Ellyn even took time to entertain our 10 year old and made up a game so he could win a prize.. The night sky & stars were absolutely glorious. We heard (then spotted!) a large owl just outside our airstream. In the distance we heard a pack of coyotes. My favorite moments by far were sitting outside to watch the stunning sunrise while we sipped our coffee. The Avion is vintage! But when there was an intense, frigid windstorm on one of our evenings we were warm and cozy in the Avion with our propane heater and an abundance of blankets. We had everything we needed to cook meals, enjoy a campfire, take showers. We look forward to coming back!

What a wonderful family. And willing to cook steaks in 40 mile an hour winds. Yes, please come back. And I'm jealous that you saw an owl!

My 4-year-old daughter and I were so lucky to have had our first glamping experience with Ellyn. She was exceptionally kind, compassionate, and helpful in every way possible: from teaching us the basics starting a campfire to conjuring macaroni and cheese when my daughter wished out loud that she wanted it for lunch one day.

Misc extras:
- The extra blankets that were provided at night were helpful on the cold (for us) nights were perfect.
- The kitchen had everyone we needed less the food (be sure to bring a cooler for your perishables).
- If you are bringing a kiddo, they will need to keep their shoes on around most of the area as the cholla cacti are very much present outside of the immediate area of Ellyn's home.
- A couple of hours after leaving Ellyn's home, my kiddo wished that we could go back for another night. I couldn't ask for a better first glamping weekend.

Had a great time at their site over the weekend. Ellyn and John were kind and communicative through the entire process. Highly recommend bringing thick sole, hiking boots (the cholla can be pretty unforgiving). This is something to consider if you're bringing a pet too

The area doesn't have the best reception so I would recommend downloading the area map on your app prior.

There is a market not too far so if you forget anything, no worries
