Rock and Tree, located in Perris, California, We are an open canvas event space.

Our motto is "Rock & Tree is meant to be explored not explained."  But I have to explain a little bit, but once you stay with us, go explore! We are an ideal venue/campground  for people seeking a quaint outdoor setting for their special day.  We have 8 campsites available up to 8 people per site. This sprawling 36-acre venue offers our guests gorgeous wildlife surroundings and is loaded with a plethora of beautiful outdoor shelters for guests to enjoy. During your stay, you are invited to camp in one of our 8 campsites. We have many different campsites to choose from, some more catered to fit campers and RVs, (no hookups) one with a hidden hang out spot, some closer to the venue and others far away.  *** Although we are on 36 acres, often times on the weekend evenings, our neighbors play music into the late evening, we've been told ear plugs are helpful :) 

My husband Anson Krekeler is a folk and blues musician and has travelled all around the U.S. playing his music and I was an aspiring Voice-Over actress. One day, we decided that we wanted to live the rest of our lives hosting live music, wedding and campers and that's how Rock & Tree began. As the idea grew, we wanted to create an Open Canvas so that the guest could dream up what they wanted on our stage. We moved to the Inland Empire from Santa Monica, in 2017 with the dream of building an open canvas event space out of sustainable, repurposed and natural materials. Our mission is help enrich the culture of Perris, CA by providing a unique venue that takes you away from the hustle and bustle and takes you to a wonderland of nature surrounded by rocks and eucalyptus trees.

A true passion project, Anson and I have built and continue to build everything ourselves, well..Anson does most of the heavy lifting. Our process is that we source as much lumber using the dead Eucalyptus trees we have here on the 36 acre property and we are constantly trying to come up with innovative ways to use recycled and donated materials in the venue. We now live on the property in a 24ft camper and we feel so lucky that our dream is slowly becoming a reality.

During the beginning of Covid, we transitioned into primarily a campground adding more campsites outside the venue, spaced apart from each other to allow for social distancing. The venue is the shared space and the 8 campsites surround it.  When you camp, we will make sure to give you your privacy and you will have access to the whole venue. We also like hanging out and getting to know the campers so if you want have a drink with us, just shoot us a text.  We have fun outdoor games like the giant slingshot, basketball hoop, corn hole, and giant jenga.  At night you will be surrounded by solar lights, imagine you are in a fairy wonderland! Check out our Instagram page to learn more about us @rockandtreeperris.

 We are an all outdoor venue, so please bring plenty of warm blankets and layers and during the day, plenty of water and sunscreen. We have a communal BBQ and propane firepit on site, first come first serve, an additional $8 to cover the propane.  

Upon arrival, Please message me when you are about 10 minutes away. I will meet you at the outside gate and teach you how to open and close it so that you can come and go as you please. Check in is between 10am - 5pm, this gives our campers time to check out and us to clean in between arrivals. We prefer you checking in while it is still light outside. If you need to make any earlier or later arrangements please reach out to coordinate. Please be courteous of your fellow campers. 

A couple of "house rules" :

The gate needs to stay closed. 

We ask that all amplified music is turned down by 1:30am. We will leave the solar lights on over night so it won't be pitch black.  Music at your tent is totally fine and if you bring an instrument and feel like jamming, my husband and I both play guitar :) 

COVID-19: Masks are options, just be considerate and respectful of your fellow campers. We have sinks, cleaning material and hand sanitizer available. . After Porta Potty use, please wipe down and remember to wash your hands for 20 seconds. We are doing everything on our part to keep the venue clean and safe for all guests.  If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask.

Suggestions on things to bring: 

It does get cold at night, bring a sweater and warm blankets. 

Cooler with ice and plenty of water to keep hydrated. 

Glass bottles so you can recycle and paint them when you are here :) 

Camping stove if you don't want to use our BBQ. 

Stakes to secure tents down (it can get windy around 5pm)

Ear plugs - the surrounding neighborhood have roosters, coyotes in the hills and sometimes neighbors play music and set off fireworks.

Sunscreen, hat. 

Sweater for the evenings.

Solar lights for your tent. / Flash Light

Closed toed shoes to walk around, climb rocks.

Blankets to lay out. 

Glowsticks are fun at night. 

Trash bags. 

What to Do near by: The venue is near Lake Perris, Lake Elsinore, Skydive Perris, and Temecula wineries, March Air Force Base/ Museum. Often times it can be very hot, we recommend heading to the Lakes for the day to keep cool :) 

We are so excited to share our campground with you! If you have any questions please contact me directly! We look forward to meeting you!

Rock & Tree is an absolutely FANTASTIC site. You truly have to see it to believe it. It's sooooo much more than just a campground and desert getaway. There are hammocks, a stage/platform, a giant slingshot, basketball hoops and cornhole boards, plus a million different little creative touches strewn around the area (an old phone booth, a sunken gazebo, a converted speedboat, and the list goes on and on and on...). It's like stepping into Wonderland. I couldn't recommend this place more highly. Come check it out yourself! I will be back very soon. :)

Rock & Tree is such a magical place! It’s hard to describe in words or photos, you just have to experience it for yourself. We had such a wonderful, relaxing stay. There’s so many fun little nooks and crannies to explore. If you’re thinking of booking, just do it! You’ll have such a great time. Taryn and Anson are amazing hosts, super communicative and open and helpful.
