Located in the local coastal plain of San Luis Obispo, CA. The farm is mountainous and is divided in half with the higher mountainous part for running cattle and the lower portion used for farming 200 different crops organically. They are ancient grains, beans and peas, herbs and spices. You can pick up your pumpkins and Christmas trees less than a mile to the east at Brookshire Farms. We are located within about 7 miles from Montana De Oro State Campground with 100s of miles of hiking trails of various difficulty which is right on the Pacific Ocean and we are 8 miles to Morro Bay Beach. There are views from our higher elevation areas of the farm to view Morro Bay and Morro Rock with the water crashing on the breakwater visible to the naked eye. We can also see all the way to Villa Creek Road on a clear day which is 7+ miles North of Cayucos and South of San Simeon home of Hearst Castle . Villa Creek Road is the sight of the only viable Abalone Farm in California. We are about 5 miles to the back bay of Los Osos which is called Baywood Park on the bay with restaurants from Pizza Parlors to high end dining. There is also wine tasting right across the street from Ralph’s grocery store at Baker & Brain Winery on the weekends.

We offer 3 camping sites two which are dedicated and marked and one that is your choice on the high ground shared with friendly cattle.

Pretty basic. Just a place to park and a porta-potty. The toilet hadn't been serviced since Sept. 17. Thats over a month and it showed. Pretty full and no toilet paper. Also would be nice if there was a somewhat level spot to park the van.

I don't plan to visit, again, because as a light sleeper and sensitive to ambient noise (live in a super-quiet area), my one-night stay (I booked two nights) was disturbed by (1) a dog, barking and howling all night, located about 0.2 miles north and (2) the incessant din of traffic on Los Osos Valley Road 0.3 miles to the north. If I were to go back, (a) it would not be to site 1, which has a 10% slope, as Larry described, but it could be to site 2, which is relatively flat. Didn't see site 3. I used GoTreads (ramp) to endeavor to place my SUV on a level plane, but I was short by several inches. That made for an uncomfortable night's sleep. Leveling site 1 might help. I wouldn't have known precisely where site 1 is if I had not recognized the cement block circle that is the fire pit there. So, the lack of levelness is on me, not Larry, who is responsive and has a great sense of humor.

Larry's farm is an amazing hipcamp in the central coast. Surrounded by beautiful mountains, incredibly quiet, and each camp spot is very far from the others so you have total privacy. The location is perfect for really any of the major destinations: Big sur, montana de oro, morro bay, SLO, etc.

I will definitely be back!

Larry was very warm and welcoming! Great host and great private spot with a porta potty. Site 1 is uneven, but I just put blocks under my wheels to level a bit. I would definitely stay here again👍

View from site 1 looking down the hill. Site 2 is about 100yrd behind me up the hill.Morning View

Great spot to stay a few nights. I was on a 3 day surfing trip, and this location was an easy drive to the beach for surfing. I will be back!!!

It was a special experience staying on this farm. We had a beautiful view of the mountains with a light fog coming in as the sun set. Wonderful place to sip coffee on a brisk early morning
