What a gem! The Reid Ranch was exactly what I was looking for. The site has everything you need if you are car camping. We needed something affordable near Legoland and this was perfect. Plenty of nice grocery stores nearby for getting your supplies. Beautiful views all around the big boulders. There’s an outdoor shower and sink. The grill and fire pit area is so cool, unfortunately we didn’t get to use it because there was a fire ban issued during our stay. If we are ever back in this area I would definitely stay here again!!

The absolute perfect spot!!!!

Absolutely perfect location, tent area was big enough for our 8 person tent. Picnic table, sink. Awesome fire pit area with the Yeti cooler and grill, bathroom! Everything has been thought of and provided. 10/10 would recommend, and plan to go again ourselves. Minutes from the beach, lots of shopping and restaurants. Brent was very approachable and reached out to see if we needed anything at all. PS, ask about adding on the additional bed mats they offer. Couldn’t have picked a better spot!

I absolutely loved this camp spot. I was able to sleep under the stars and enjoy the beautiful views on the morning. I was able to pack light and have everything I needed. I will be back. One of my favorite spots.

This is such a great site and so peaceful!! I was traveling by myself and felt so safe and welcomed by Brent and Kate. Kate showed me where everything was (such a great set up with a bathroom and outdoor sink and fire pit) and Brent gave awesome beach recommendations that perfectly fit my style! Brent also shared some of his vision for the future with the site so I will DEFINITELY be back to stay again the next time I’m in Southern California!

Great place to relax by a fire

I took my 6-year-old and 4-year-old camping for the first time. It was a first time doing anything like this myself and it was there first time camping.

The Reid Ranch is set atop a little hill. Brent has made the site so that it’s not too far where you can reach him for anything but far enough where you can still enjoy your privacy. There’s a really cool natural stone fire pit that we enjoyed every night of our trip. Brent sets you up (for a cost) with bundles of firewood, just let him know how many bundles you need. The camp site is just beneath the fire pit area and you fall asleep every night to frogs and crickets, quite calming. There’s a sink where you can clean your dishes. The bathroom and shower were in an old RV just right by the main house. The RV is available (for a cost) to use as well. It was a nice touch and experience to sleep in an RV for a night.

I would go back for sure just to be in that fire pit area every night. It was so relaxing.

Brent was very hospitable! The property was gorgeous as well. You can sit and watch the sunset, have a nice fire, keep your food cold in the cooler provided and so much more! Brent gave great recommendations on what to do close by and gave me some fresh lemons from his garden. I felt safe and right at home here it was an awesome stay :)

My husband and I had such a lovely time camping at the site. Directions given were easy to follow and were particularly helpful since we arrived after sundown. The camping area (and frankly the entire property) is beautiful and has many amenities (grill, picnic table with lit up umbrella, sink, turf, etc) that definitely make this feel like more of a glamping experience than simply camping! :) We ended up forgetting our sleeping pads at home and rented some from Brent - they were incredibly comfortable and we slept like babies. Brent was very kind and quick to answer all of our questions. We also loved visiting with Pumpkin their pet pig! We absolutely would love to come back for another camping trip again soon.
