Site 1 is a beautiful spot that offers all day partial shade and can accommodate two 4 person tents or a camper van/truck. Saddle Up Ranch is a horse rescue that has horses, goats, one sheep, pigs, chickens, dogs and cats. 100% of our funds go towards the animals as everyone, even the owner (TJ) , is a volunteer. We have over 180 trees on the property (mostly beautiful flowing California Pepper Trees) and have gorgeous views of the surrounding mountains and horse pastures. We offer horseback riding, goat yoga, goat milking, and target shooting (with pellet guns). You can also volunteer and help care for and groom the animals while you are here, or help with one of our special projects like building our chicken coop or clearing trails for our horseback riding trail system.

Super fun seeing all the animals, the goats were hilarious. Host was very welcoming and staff was very friendly! The actual camp site was a bit on the small side but still makes for a great getaway. Thank you for having us!

Everyone is friendly and the animals are adorable. I spent most of the time here connecting to them. The attitude here seems to be based its self sufficiency which I align with. But others may not. We were encouraged to forage for fire wood and had a great night camping.

We had nothing short of an amazing time at Saddle Up Ranch. The host, TJ, was super welcoming and very friendly. They had amazing animals that my kids loved petting and feeding. The Horses, goats, pigs, a sheep, and chickens were a hit with my kids. There was even a ranch dog, named Apollo, who stole our hearts and in my 9 year olds words “was the cherry on top” of our awesome camping experience. The property itself was well kept and our site seemed clean. We are already planning our next stay. 10/10 would recommend!

The horses are beautiful Super friendly horses Awesome views of Palomar mountainApollo the ranch dog was the goodest boy ❤️

Really excellent experience. TJ and the volunteers on property were super. Site was off to the side of the range and had great views of the neighboring hills, it’s own picnic table and a grill we could use (bring your own charcoal).

We loved spending time with all the animals including horses, goats, pigs, chickens — and the sweetheart of a ranch dog: Apollo.

Can’t wait to come back.

Cute and quiet camping spor right on a horse and goat farm. Good hikes near by. Tons of stars at night. There was a grill and plenty of brush for fires but bring your own charcoal and wood.

We had an AMAZING experience staying here. From witnessing the birth of baby goats to playing with pregnant mama pigs, if you love animals, nature, and great people, Saddle Up Ranch is the place for you.

Definitely fell in love with this place! Make sure you go and love on the baby goats and the horses! All such sweeties!
TJ helped us start our fire the first night we were there and she talked to us for a bit. TJ is by far the nicest person we have ever met and her ranch is definitely a hidden gem!
All the volunteers were very nice to us over the weekend we stayed.
She has a cute little picnic area near the house on the property and we sat up there and watched the sunset the stars were also amazing from our site. The 2 portable toilets she has on the property were clean!
I would recommend booking a horse back ride while you’re there too because that was definitely the cherry on top for us!
We will definitely be back!
