Nestled in the mountains above San Diego, our property is in Julian CA.  We are halfway between Julian and Santa Ysabel (about 3 miles to either), and we offer a great centrally located place to use as your base for exploring the local area.  Julian is loaded with things to do;  hiking, fishing, sight seeing, bird and wildlife watching, star gazing in our dark skies, visiting the wolf center, apple picking in season, etc.  There are shops, antiques, dining, groceries/gas, and much more located no more than 2.5 miles away.   The Anza-Borrego desert is 45 minutes away.  The San Diego beaches are an hour and a half down the hill.  

And - there is an organic farm stand within walking distance!

We have about five acres of open fields and oak groves ranging from full sun to full shade with moderate inclines to flat areas.   Regular cars and vans can drive to any location they prefer during dry weather.  Campers and RVs will have to use sites close to the driveway during wet weather.   We are surrounded by fenced fields for horses, cattle, and an apple orchard.   Being about 1/4 mile off the highway, you will get some road noise during the day but Julian rolls up the sidewalks at dark so the nights are very quiet!

Stayed for one VERY cold night last week. The site was awesome, and there was only one other camper there. I only briefly met Tom, and he was very friendly and welcoming. Next year, when spring turkey season opens, I'll definitely come back.

We had a wonderful time in Tom and Barbara's garden. Far away from the action but still close enough to the village to walk to one of the many Pumpkin Patches, test the best bakery in the area (it was super delicious) and taste some cider. The farm was as described. Without much comfort but with very accommodating hosts. The nature was right in front and there was even some autumn leaves to see. thank you. we'll come back sometime.

Easy to find, just off of rural 78. Hosts very easy going and friendly on arrival with packet of “to-do” things in the area. 4 camp sites available but we had the place to ourselves! It was quiet and perfect for a night to camp out. Would definitely come again!

My friend and I wanted a last minute getaway for the first day of fall and headed to Julian. This site couldn’t have been in a better location... we biked uphill to Julian for lunch and cider and then came down to Wynola for mead, more cider, a farm festival and finished with pizza. Everything was very close to the camp.
The site itself was very pretty with horses in the distance and an awesome tree that we hung hammocks on. Since we were gone most of the day we didn’t get to meet the hosts, but they graciously let us arrive early so that we could start our bike ride from the campsite. I would definitely stay here again!

I booked super last minute but Tom responded right away and gave me super easy directions. I just needed a quick little spot out of town and it was exactly what I needed. The oak tree was beautiful and just perfect for a weekend getaway in Julian.

Tom and Barbara went above and beyond as hosts. I made a last minute booking, they responded quickly and were very accommodating. On arrival I received a lovely welcome pack with loads of information to do/see/eat in the surrounding area.

They have a large yard with trees and large bushes to allow just the right amount of privacy.

Easy to find and in close proximity to downtown Julian, hiking trails and parks.

Highly recommend.

Stayed for one night and loved it. My kids enjoyed saying "Hi" the horses next door and I heard turkeys gobbling in the early morning. Very restful.
