Had a great time camping here! My daughter absolutely loved the private tour to see all the animals. We'll definitely be back in the future!

The kids loved that there was 2 cows pen up right next to campsite, "camping with us" and that they got to feed them a couple of times. Site was well setup with picnic tables and well build campfire ring.

Cory was quick to respond and helped me book a same day stay when our original plan fell through due to bad weather. We were greeted at the front gate by Sydney and she showed us around our camp area. Our area was fenced in from the main road and had 2 portapotties to use. We had 6 kids with us so they LOVED the tour to see all the animals. Cassidy was our guide and she did an amazing job at it.

The repticular form was fantastic. We stayed in a great area a little off of the ranch which included a porta potty and a hand washing station. The staff was incredibly friendly and ensured that we had everything we needed. And all the animals were spectacular. 10 out of 10. I would recommend.

Camping at Reptacular was awesome. The spot was lovely right alongside a flowing stream and the tour with the animals in the morning was really special. Christina was a wonderful tour guide!

This must be one of the most unique experiences out there. The campsite was clean and had a large fire pit with benches. There were several picnic tables and we had private portable bathrooms onsite. The most amazing feature of the campsite was the small heard of camels in an enclosure right next to it. Camping next to these wonderful animals is almost beyond words. Along with camping we were also given a private tour of the ranch. Christina, our guide, had an extensive knowledge of the animals and our two young children had all their questions answered. We were allowed to hold and interact with many of the animals including a Watusi Bull, and an Argentine Red Tegu Lizard. A few of the reviews do mention the fact that Reptacular Ranch also hosts Weddings. If you camp while there is a wedding happening, you will hear music from the wedding, the night we stayed it wrapped up by 10pm. The campsite is also situated between two small ranch roads, so you will hear and see vehicles coming and going to the ranch and wedding site. We found these to be minor issues in comparison to the opportunity to share a campsite with 7-10 camels, but it is worth mentioning. The ranch is located in the Angeles National Forest, so there are beautiful hikes located close to your campsite. Overall we had an incredible time. It was safe, clean and the staff was wonderful. I would highly recommend staying here. Especially if, like us, you have kids who love animals.

This was a really lovely experience for us. Our kids loved the animals and camping next to camels was pretty cool. It’s definitely a lot pricier than regular camping but getting up and close with the animals was pretty cool.

David and Christine were amazing tour guides. We got to see so many reptiles. And we hung out with camels! They are both so knowledgeable and so easy to talk to.

Cory - thank you for being so kind and so hospitable. We've let everyone know what a great time we had on your property.

Thank you!
