Enjoy a private lake to yourself. We will now be keeping only one site open and it is at the lake. A BBQ, firepit, and boats await you for a nice relaxing weekend and  you will find that even on hot days there is a nice breeze that helps keep heat down. Plus your dogs (and you, too!) will enjoy taking a dip in the lake and cooling off on the grass.

A friendly reminder, we are a working ranch, so during harvest (anytime from August through October)  you might hear and see equipment being used to harvest the grapes, walnuts, and almonds; there will be higher levels dust at these times.

Travis was an excellent host. He took very good care of us, very accommodating, all questions answered. It was a beautiful place and the best part was, it was private. Only our family (our group) was there. We were able to just relax, have a good time and enjoy every minute of it. He let us use the BBQ grill, propane, woods, boats, kayaks and bathrooms were clean. We really had a great time and can't wait to do it again next year.

It has a big shade structure with lots of tables and chairs. There are lights, electrical plugs, and water misters for when it's hot. It has bathrooms with flush toilets and sinks. Definitely more luxurious than your average camp ground. No showers, but we rinsed off with the hose.

This was our 4th visit to Travis's beautiful property and we have already made our plans to visit again next summer. My granddaughters, 9 and 12 love this place. This year the lake was not as full as our previous visits but it did not deter the girls from spending most of every day in the water along with their two dogs.
I love that there are very nice bathrooms and electricity.
There is a working almond orchard near the campsite so occasionally there are people/tractors driving by but they are very respectful and it does not at all take away from the peacefulness of the campsite.
Travis is a very gracious host and clearly communicates anything you might need to know while on the property. He will even let you help feed the horses and the goats if you want.
This is a wonderful location with a wonderful host. You will not be disappointed if you choose to spend some time here.

We just love our time spent on Travis’s property. It is always so relaxing and we can’t wait for the next visit when we are leaving. Travis is always quick to reply to a text and happy to help wherever needed.

Great place! Loved the lake, the boating, the shade, the fire. We fed the goats and horses. Even the geese were well behaved and never came into our camp. Good bird watching too. Thanks, Travis, for being a great host.

This is the exception to the “Too good to be True” rule… it really is that awesome… just wish it was still my little secret hideaway. Thanks Travis & family!
