PLEASE BE SURE TO READ THROUGH OUR INFO ENTIRELY BEFORE REQUESTING TO BOOK. (there is a sneaky bit of info we'd like you to submit when you message us initially to request to book a stay) 


This is one of 4 sites at Rudy Ranch. Our property wide, maximum capacity is 16 and all campers have access to the swimming pool, pool bathroom and shower during their stay. 

CHECK IN IS ONLY ALLOWED BETWEEN 3:00 AND 9:00 PM. If you can't make it  by then, please book for the following day.

If you're looking for an ADULTS ONLY, beautiful and quiet place to camp, rest, kick back and hear the birds and wind in the trees, you've found it!  While we do enjoy the energy of young children, we live in a very quiet neighborhood and have made the decision to exclusively host adult guests looking for a restful retreat. We have also decided that we will not make exceptions to this decision and invite those looking for a family experience to continue their search on the Hipcamp platform. There are many family friendly hosts excited to accept children of all ages!   

Our peaceful eight acre parcel is 13 miles from Santa Cruz, CA, just minutes away from Big Basin, offers 8.5 acres to hike on and is walking distance to downtown Boulder Creek. All of our sites are under the beauty of the redwoods that cover the Santa Cruz Mountains with a gorgeous swimming pool. The pool area has an outdoor shower, bathroom, and BBQ available to our campers. We as those that use our cooking area and bathroom to clean up after themselves as if their mother would be using it next. 

We quite frequently have our family members using the pool, as well.

Come camp with us and have a base camp to discover all that Santa Cruz County has to offer right from Boulder Creek.

COVID-19 - While we offer soap, hot water and disinfectant spray we trust that our campers are taking precautions to stay safe and will practice social distancing while staying with us. We do not have anything marked, as we trust that we all are aware of how far 6 feet apart is. ;)  We are not able to clean the bathroom at the swimming pool after each guest and ask each camper to clean up before and after themselves to ensure their own safety.  Sadly, someone has already stolen some of our supplies and we can't afford to keep giving away free things. We know that YOU would never do that....

Thanks for understanding!!!

Hang in the comfy motor HOMER! A very comfy, clean and fully functional 30 foot RV with a cute, little private "mini yard" right next to the swimming pool. The    convenience kitchen has a microwave, electric coffee pot, refrigerator and freezer. We do not have an operational cooktop because we prefer any "real cooking" to happen outside with either the barbecue provided or your own camp stove. 

HOMER also has a shower and toilet.  Although not air conditioned HOMER has dual rooftop cooling fans that bring in the cool, coastal, evening air.  This place is cozy! 

Please let us know how many of the two of you requesting to stay smoke cigs when you request to stay. 

This site is at the far end of the property and while not visible to them, close to our neighbors.  Voices, music and car doors slamming really carries and can disturb others.  We ask that you are considerate to the other campers, our neighbors and us and keep the volume low. Please refrain from opening and slamming car doors and hatchbacks repeatedly. In other words, keep car doors open until all your stuff is out. ;) Yes, it's really necessary to say this, believe it or not....

Due to COVID-19 we are no longer offering cookware and utensils, but you are welcome to bring in your own food and disposable serving items. 

Hope to see you soon!

Gordon and Ron

Gosh, This worked for me, but I think it was somewhat overpriced and would not call this "Glamping". The bathroom was awkward to get to, actually a bit dangerous at night, and if you have arachnophobia, would definitely be a no. The pool equipment would go on at 5 AM and was loud. The bed was very comfortable, however.

First off, the RV was in impeccable condition given its age. Having never spent time in an RV before, it was easy to learn to operate the electricity/water, etc. and Gordon was readily available to answer all of my questions! Boulder Creek is a wonderful, picturesque little mountain town with its own lovely surprises. And the friendliest people all around! A great experience! One note — the hot tub wasn’t functional for my stay. Perhaps I missed instructions somewhere, but from my inspection it seemed to have not have been used in some time… But regardless I was absolutely delighted with the setup otherwise, and I would most definitely return/recommend Rudy Ranch to anyone in doubt! You won’t regret it!

I am already planning my next trip back to Gordon's little haven. I stayed at Homer and I was really happy with that choice. In response to another review, Homer is a little older and not one of these fancy immaculate RVs but I was honestly sad to say goodbye to it. It supplied all of my needs and I slept like a baby which is extremely rare for me.
I think the fact that it was an older RV added to the whole "camping in the woods" vibe for me. Gordon was so welcoming, helpful and made me feel right at home. It was so peaceful and quiet and I appreciate the no kids or dogs rule because I'm not so sure it would have been peaceful and quiet without that rule and I really needed the serenity of that place. The trees are majestic and they surround you on all sides which adds to the whole serenity vibe. I really enjoyed the pool, swimming, playing a little pool volleyball and just laying on a floatie, letting the stress of my regular life float away. I am really glad I found this spot on Hip Camp and look forward to my next visit. Thanks so much Gordon. See you soon.

We had a great stay at Homer! The RV has everything you need, and having the pool right next to us was a huge plus. Gordon and Ronni were extremely welcoming hosts - we loved chatting with them. The "downtown" area of Boulder Creek is easily within walking distance. Would highly recommend!

We've always wondered what it would be like to see this beautiful country in an RV but have been concerned if we would be able to put up with it. Homer provided that experience without having to compromise much - hot running water and a flush toilet nearby and in the middle of redwoods! Gordon was really helpful and responsive to our questions. You also get to hike on his private trail. It's also only a short walk to the quaint little town of Boulder Creek where we had great fun shopping for antiques at Mac's.

Gordon was a great host and the location is awesome. The RV was okay. We booked Homer hoping to stay warm during the cold nights but it was hard to accommodate that due to the lack of power sourced to the RV. It wasn't as clean as we would have expected, and the bed isn't very comfortable. All a step above regular camping, but the price was hard to justify for Homer.

Great place for a solo retreat. Just outside of town, spacious land, lots of trees and fresh air. Gordon the host made me feel right at home. The RV does show some signs of wear and tear but everything worked (except for the stove as mentioned in the listing, so no cooking). I will definitely be coming back in the summer so I can enjoy the pool!

Gordon and Roni are incredibly welcoming and made sure our group was comfortable the entire time. The ranch is a great place to relax and soak up the pool. Thanks Gordon!
