CAMPSITES & PER PERSON PRICING: 

Our base site rental fee is $75 for the first person which includes our propane fire-pit rental fee of $25.  

We charge an additional $49 per person after the base site fee.  

Children under 12 are FREE max 2 children if you have more than 2 children please add an extra adult for every 3 children under 12.

Our property consists of 43 rugged/hilly/mountainous acres with numerous flat plateaus and fantastic views. 

Each plateau has several great spots to car/van/truck camp, pitch a tent or park small trailers and small RVs. Larger RVs/Trailers fit on the front side of our property.  

SUMMER/FALL: Expect the landscape and views to be golden brown (not green and lush like in a lot of the photos posted which were taken this past winter/spring.)

PICKING YOUR CAMPSITE: When we are not sold out we place campers at campsites on a first-come-first-serve basis upon arrival.  If we are sold out we will pre-pick your campsite based on where we feel each of our campers will be happiest given their individual camp set up, i.e. Tent, Van, Trailer, RV, and size of the group.

All of our sites are spread out with plenty of space for social distancing.

DRY CAMPING: All of our sites are DRY camping (no water/electricity.) We provide a picnic table and one small tiki-hut style umbrella and a propane fire pit with a propane tank.

Our best sites, with little-to-no traffic noise, (and the best views) are on our back property.  Best suited for tents, camper vans, trucks, and SMALL trailers or SMALL RVs.  There is a semi-steep hill up to our upper property if you're towing a trailer you will need a powerful vehicle to make it up the hill.

Sites on our lower property by the common area are easily accessible with views up the hills/mountains but come with some highway noise.  We imagine it sounds like waves crashing and call it the "steel river."  

For your private camp area, please bring your own drinking water, water to wash dishes and if think you'll need: chairs, camp tables, umbrellas or shade structures, etc. 

Plan on being fully self-sufficient at your private camp area.  Otherwise, feel free to use the common area at the barn until 10 pm.

MOST DOGS WELCOMED...  WE PROHIBIT UN-neutered aggressive breed dogs.  DOGS ARE FREE TO RUN UNLEASHED ALL OVER OUR LAND.

ABOUT OUR DOGS: We have three male dogs (one of the three is UN-NEUTERED) a 10-year-old yellow lab (Titan-Dan), a 11-year-old American Dingo (Reno) and 3-year-old Great Pyrenees (Bandit.) All three of our fur babies are great with children and non-aggressive visiting dogs.  We are fostering a 4-year-old female Great Pyrenees (we named Cannoli) who crossed the highway and found our property.   

COMMON USE AREA: Inside and near the barn include tables, chairs, hammocks, wood fire pit, outdoor propane BBQ and stove, small indoor kitchen available by reservation/pre-approval, outdoor mineral shower, and mineral cold plunge tubs.

FIRE SAFETY & PROPANE FIREPITS:  We have “very safe” propane firepits and fire extinguishers at every site. Under the right conditions, we will light a real wood fire at the common area by the barn.  Feel free to join us in the early evening until 10-11pm.  

PORTA-POTTIES: We have porta-potties next to the Barn, the Garden, Running Dog Flats, and the Art Studio.  They are pumped clean every Thursday and are generally very lightly used.  If you don’t want to use the porta-potties we recommend/encourage you to bring your own camp toilet, bags, and absorbent. 

WILDLIFE: Our dogs do a great job of fending off the resident bobcat and coyotes on the front portion of our property and by the barn, if they are barking in the night there's a reason. If you end up camping on the front portion of our property and think their barking will affect your sleep, bring earplugs ;-).

Drinking-Water, Dish Washing Water & Shade:  All of our sites are dry camping i.e. there is no potable water available. Please bring all your own drinking/dish washing water.  We have a picnic table and tiki-hut umbrellas at all the sites. Please bring additional shade i.e. easy up or other shade structures if you think you'll need it. 

Cold Mineral Dunks & Outdoor Mineral Shower: We have huge aluminum cowboy cold dunk tubs available at what we lovingly/jokingly refer to as our very own “Cactus Flower Beach,”  which is not a real beach… It feels like a beach because we’ve decked it out with lounge chairs, a daybed cabana, 150K pounds of sand and tiki-hut umbrellas.  It’s really fun to hang out there when it’s hot under the shade of the pepper trees.

  NOTE:   The Outdoor Shower screening is a tad see-through. If you are shy, wear a bathing suit.

  Please limit showers to 3-5 minutes max.

Mineral Water Definition: Water from a mineral spring or well (i.e. our well) that contains various minerals, such as salts and sulfur compounds.

Trash:  Please pack all your trash out to the large trash bin located at the entrance to our property. Please take your recycling with you.

Electricity & Wi-Fi: We have charging stations in the barn for your computers, phones, etc. Password: HowdyDoody (Accessible in and near the barn common area)

Commissary:  We have farm fresh eggs, bacon jerky, meats from the pork palace across the street, and other swag for sale in the barn.

Feed The Chickens & Goats: Please feel free to feed the goats and chickens your vegetable scraps and or bring them a treat they love full heads of cabbage, lettuce, cantaloupe and watermelon.

Children: For safety, Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times!

What a magical wonder this property is. My second time staying at Sierra and Darin’s Freedog Farms and I already can’t wait to revisit. The views are spectacular of course, but it’s the warm hospitality and genuine energy that keep me coming back for more. Book your stay. Just do it. 💜

Can’t say enough good things about the property and the owners.

Freedog Farms owned by Sierra and Darrin.
Rustic 43 acres 15 minutes from Solvang.
*Farm animals and roaming dogs which Ruby hung out with
*Gives a camping experience with some amenities for the new campers out there.
*if you bring your dog, there’s burs all over the ground that can get stuck on long fur- being a brush.
*bugs; bring spray/natural deterrents.
*they have really good beer on tap 😄
*Propane fire pits at most spots; still in fire season so it’s nice to have a fire going without having to worry about embers.
*mineral cold water dunk tanks and running water, and porta-potty’s at most spots.
*bring some food/scrap vegetables for the animals

We spent an early October weekend at Freedog Farms and had a great time. The owners/hosts were very friendly and helpful. There were propane fire pits at each site and a communal log fire pit in the common area where guests could meet each other, hang out, and chat with the owners. The sites are well dispersed so we didn’t feel too close to any neighbors and the hillsides were beautiful. The location is convenient to either visit Gaviota Beach or explore Solvang.

This is the wood burning fire pit in the communal area. Here you can see the propane fire pit and picnic table you’ll find at each spot.Camp Out @ Freedog FarmsCamp Out @ Freedog Farms

This was my second time staying at Freedog Farms. The first trip was with family, and the second trip was a quick dads and sons adventure, but what they both had in common was a great time at Freedog Farms! Darin and Sierra have an incredible property and, more importantly, are incredible hosts. Great location and great people all around. Already looking forward to our next visit.
