Beautiful property high on the mountain. Lots of space to distance yourself from other campers. Cleanest portapotties ever!

I had mixed feelings about this site. Yes, it has many positive reviews, but the campsites are a little too closely spaced together and some of our camping neighbors were noisy. The remainder of the structures looked a little worn down, and if you don't get here early, the campsites with the good views will be taken. It served its purpose, as most of the state campsites have been closed due to the fires, but I may opt for a less crowded Hipcamp in the future.

It was bitter sweet, it was our first time camping without a water source nearby (river, lake). The employee Albert was awesome, very helpful and humble. The owner, not so much, she's a Karen, very demanding and full of herself. Requiring everyone to be silent when she's speaking and must respect her "Presence".

Response from Nicole, the Host, on September 30th, 2021

The owner has a responsibility for all guest on the property. We ask all guest to be mindful of one another. Vicki approached your campsite at 11 pm due to complaints from other campers stating they could not sleep due to the high volume of your speakers. There was such a lack of respect when the owner told you to turn off your speakers and you stood up and got in the owners face and said “I’m going to continue to watch my movie.” It was apparent you were over intoxicated as you disrupted our Airbnb guest at the house by knocking on there door at midnight. This Is Serenity ranch and it’s important all guest are supported while they are there to set the intention to enjoy the sounds of nature.

The camp sites are great but the staff is rude by yelling and using profanity towards the guest.

Harrison Serenity Ranch is a large, well-equipped campground tucked away in the gorgeous Palomar Mountains. The property is on a mountain side, which lends itself to spectacular views of the valley below. We stayed in site 11, a hike-in style site that feels nicely separated from the other campers(something we value). It also sits right on the cliff side allowing you to witness spectacular mauve sunsets and blankets of fog below at sunrise. Bathrooms are portable and remarkably clean. Dane, who helped us settle in, was pleasant, patient, and helpful. Vicky, the owner, was informative and kind. Overall, we had a wonderful time. Yes, the bugs are numerous, but with some bug spray and a shady spot on the cliff, they'll pretty much leave you alone. Also, we didn't see or feel a single mosquito, which was wonderful. At night, all the bugs go away, and you'll discover why it's called Harrison Serenity Ranch.

Our kitchen had one heck of a view.Doesn't begin to capture the beauty.
