*Please read the entirety of the description as it includes important information pertaining to our farm and a positive camping experience*

Situated in the local coastal plain of San Luis Obispo, CA, this mountainous farm is divided in half with a higher portion for running cattle and a lower portion for farming 200+ organic crops, ranging from ancient grains, beans, and peas to herbs and spices. Stock up at our on-farm store, located in a small barn to the right as you enter the property! You can also pick up your pumpkins and Christmas trees less than a mile east at Brookshire Farms. 

Located within 7 miles of Montana De Oro State Park, our campsites offer close access to 100s of miles of hiking trails. Varying in both difficulty and landscape, some hikes offer ocean views, others offer the delightful scent of towering Eucalyptus groves.  Additionally, we are only 8 miles from Morro Bay Beach. 

From our higher elevation sites, guests get a bird's-eye view of Morro Bay and Morro Rock, with the waves crashing on the breakwater visible to the naked eye. On a clear day, you can also see all the way to Villa Creek Road, 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. 

Additionally, we are about 5 miles to the back bay of Los Osos, known as Baywood Park. Baywood offers a variety of dining options, ranging from Pizza Parlors to high end restaurants. 

At our farm, we offer 3 camp sites, two at the base of the mountain and a third located at the top of the mountain. There are two porta potties, one at the top site and a second located next to sites 1 & 2. Please bring your own toiletry supplies.  We ask that you clean up after yourself in the bathroom and be respectful of other campers.

NO OFF-ROAD VEHICLES are allowed on our property

***Note: Our property is home to several hundred hives of bees. They awake when the sun rises and go to sleep as the sun sets. To access the campsites, you will drive right next to the bee hives. Please keep this in mind when booking your stay and be sure to close your windows when approaching your campsite! We are not responsible for any complications related to bee stings.***

IN THE EVENT OF RAIN, much of the property becomes muddy & impassable. Please be aware that we may need to cancel & refund your stay due to weather concerns.

Lovely campsite! It was private and secluded while being only minutes outside of town! The views were amazing and we loved getting to camp next to the gorgeous live oak tree

The pictures on this site don’t do it justice! Larry’s land is absolutely beautiful. We stayed on site 3 and had the best view of Morro Rock the whole time. It’s far enough from other sites that you really feel secluded. The big tree and swing were a huge bonus. And while the site feels secluded, you’re not too far from a grocery store or restaurant if you forget anything. I would definitely come back here!

Sure 3 was wonderful and I would recommend it over site 1 & 2 if you’re looking for privacy, comfort and an awesome experience. We have 2 reactive dogs so we need our space when camping and this was perfect. The beautiful huge tree in the center of the site was awesome for shade and hooking up the dog runs and hammocks. The big, open spot on the site is as perfect for riding our bikes and running with the dogs. There is a little trail that take you up a little higher on Larry’s lot, perfect for the sunset! We stopped at Larry’s regenerative farming store and bought some peas and beans! Larry was responsive via text and very welcoming. The hill up to site 3 is pretty steep. Driving in and by the sheep and donkey was pretty cool. There was an abundance of seating on site 3 and the huge picnic table was very cool. There is a swing up there too which was cool. If only we could have had a fire the experience would be complete! (Current fire ban in place) I would definitely recommend Larry’s land! 5 minutes to Los Osos, 15 minutes to Morro Rock, 15 minutes to downtown San Luis Obispo. It’s perfect!

Beautiful spot with sweeping views and quietness that makes it feel remote, despite being 5 minutes from town. Loved staying here and will most definitely return.

Site 3 was awesome. Very secluded, private, and quiet. The sites below were totally quiet too (and are pretty far away). My kids loved the swing in the magnificent oak tree. At night we heard deer and owls and all sorts. Even though you're a world away, there is a shopping center less than 15 min away with anything you might need. The hill up to site 3 is steep- we were also lucky to beat the rain because I imagine it wouldn't work too well to get up if it were wet. Our Subaru Crosstrek isn't a beast and it did just fine in dry conditions.
