The Preserve at Temecula Creek has a nice guest hangout area in the center of the property that all guests can use with a geodome, hammock, charcoal grill, dog gazebo, wood burning fire pit, lounge chairs and sun shades.

What is Pupterra Adventures? We turned our passion for outdoor adventure into a small side business called "Pupterra Adventures" in 2020. In April 2020 we purchased the property now called The Preserve at Temecula Creek, and in March 2021 purchased The Preserve at Aguanga Ranchos. While it wasn't our initial intent to host guests on the land, we gave it a try - ended up loving hosting/sharing the land - and now we spend nearly all of our free time working on restoring the land while creating a special & unique guest experience for our visitors. In addition to running The Preserve properties, Pupterra Adventures tries to find ways to make it easier for you to find your next adventure by sharing guides, maps, gear and off-road camp trailer resources and recommendations.
How do the properties differ? We get this question a lot. The properties are more similar than they are different so let’s start with that. The properties are 2.6 Miles (~15 minutes) apart from each other. To keep things easy, we offer every site across both properties at the same nightly rate for 4 guests, with some of the smaller sites priced for two at a lower cost point. All sites allow for instant booking, 1 night minimums and the most flexible cancelation policy available. Both properties are set up for “Wilderness+” camping experience; remote yet 4G LTE connected on a safe and established private property. Neither property has utilities, nor water and provide a porta-potty toilet. Guests are expected to “leave no trace” and pack out all waste after their stay. Personal (or rental) propane fire pits and grills are allowed on all guest sites, with wood burning fire options available to all guests as described in each individual site listing. All sites have tables as described in the listing details with Guest Hangout areas on the property for some extra comfort, fun & gathering space. Our guests visit to decompress and disconnect. Quiet hours are 9PM to 9AM on both properties. We are dog lovers and encourage guests to bring well-behaved pets. We ask that they stay on leash/lead while on the property for their safety and the safety of others. When camping at one of The Preserve properties you can expect beautiful surroundings, room to spread out and explore, proximity to many outdoor adventures in the area, responsive hosts and cool guests sharing the property (over half of our guests are now repeat visitors – and these properties seem to draw very chill outdoor adventure enthusiasts). We do not live on either property which gives you even more privacy, but also limits immediate on-site support. We employ local guest experience managers to help maintain the property and to remain on call for immediate guest needs.
The Preserve at Temecula Creek is surrounded on all sides by Cleveland National Forest and requires a two mile ascent on a high vehicle clearance dirt fire road. We suggest high clearance AWD as our standing ‘recommendation’ because it will apply to any weather/road condition throughout the year. We allow for trailers and campers on this property but strongly suggest that they be off-road capable (smaller, good clearance, independent suspension or torsion axles). This property is a favorite for overlanders & off-road enthusiasts. The fire road that runs through the center of the property continues up and through Cleveland National Forest to the High Point Fire Lookout and then back down Palomar Divide Road.
The Preserve at Aguanga Ranchos is more accessible to all vehicles and larger trailers/campers. It is also very private, however, it is surrounded by private property – which limits guests to the 25 acres for exploration. Aguanga Ranchos is more traditional. Each site has a large heavy-duty picnic tables and a wood burning fire pit w/ a grill insert and spark screen. This property is higher in elevation than Temecula creek, and the landscape is different – with large boulder fields and rock outcroppings throughout.

If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
Recently stayed at Skyview with 6 friends and it was awesome. Upon arriving, every guest would say 2 things: "wow, this site is amazing!" and "that road is no joke!" (we're not off-roaders). My Outback made it up just fine, but there were a few areas to look out for -- definitely take it slow and I'd recommend driving that road during the day.
The site is plenty big and the Guest Hangout is just a short walk away. The guest spot is really cool -- several hammocks, a shade dome, a shade awning, picnic table, Weber Q grill, and more (just bring a grill brush).
Not a lot of shade so definitely bring your pop-ups. Amazing sunsets, lots of stars and lots of privacy. Bob stopped by on Friday night to check on us and was super friendly. I'd definitely recommend and look forward to booking another trip here.
Camping unlike any other
This was a camping experience unlike any other. While the two mile dirt road to get there was challenging even for my 4-wheel drive, straddling the larger ruts and going VERY slow over the unavoidable ones worked well. Anyone who has gone off-roading or driven on rugged mountain roads should have no problem. You just have to observe the road carefully and put your car in the best position to avoid or gently travel over the obstacles of ruts and some rocks. The reward for completing this two mile stretch is getting access to a remote part of nature that you won’t find at typical campgrounds or national parks.
The two nights we spent at the very large Skyview campsite were awesome. It was extremely peaceful due to there being very few campsites on this massive preserve. Our day hikes of 2-5 miles up the mountain were great workouts in the sun, but the most enjoyable parts of our vacation were sleeping under the stars in such a quiet environment in very comfortable temperatures. The second night, we even stumbled upon a cute bed and chairs that were apparently put near our campsite for guests to use. So what the heck, we just threw a sleeping bag over the bed, then laid down and pleasantly watched the stars for a couple hours before retiring to our tent.
The extra accessories put in the “Guest Hangout” were really cool, too, including a super comfortable hammock, a large cabana for shade during the day while equipped with slots for stargazing at night, and various picnic items. You can tell the owners of this campground really want their guests to have a good time. Well, we certainly did, and appreciate their hospitality.
Bob and Sally were wonderful hosts, rarely have we ever had such attentive and caring hosts. Especially at such a remote site. SkyView is a big site, we had two families of four staying there in 4 tents and could have put up 4 more tents with plenty of room to spare. The road up to the preserve is definitely rough, but my Tesla ModelY and my friends Honda Odyssey minivan got up there fine. We were also able to get down the short drive way from the main truck trail to the campsite (and back up with no trouble). It was a hot hot hot weekend stay - temperatures were at 90 by 11am and 100F by 1pm. But even for that as long as don’t move the evening is worth the wait. The skies were amazing. So many stars. We didn’t see any wildlife, but we had a camp full of 6th, 8th and 9th graders so not surprising. There is a nice little area for guests with a dome tent (with recliners and hammocks) and a kitchen area. We were pretty set up without that but we definitely took advantage of the dome during the hot of the day.
I am sure you can hike around - but because of the heat we didn’t. The toilet is a porta-potty - but very clean and didn’t smell - the host seems to go around every day and chemically treat it.
We drove down to see the local olive oil farm, which was very pretty, but they didn’t take credit cards that day (machine was broken apparently).
We stayed two nights - used 7 gallons of water for 4 humans and 2 dogs.
We will definitely be back when the weather cools down!
Great camping site!
This spot was great. Great spot to do some stargazing and get away from it all. Really enjoyed sleeping without our rain fly and just sleeping under the the stars. Bob was a great host and we can’t wait to make it back for some more overnights.
Great spot for boon-docking.
This is a great spot for overlanding/boon-docking. We drove our Toyota Sequoia converted camper with RTT, with 5 people camped at this spot and spent a unbelievable night watching meteor shower. Very quiet and secluded. Just booked another night for the coming weekend.
Bob was a great host! The directions sent to you when booking were very clear. The location was absolutely beautiful, I love how secluded skyview is and the stars at night (along with the sunset) are absolutely beautiful! I also loved the guest hangout area and how clean everything was. I highly recommend and will definitely be returning.
The spot was beautiful! I was a big fan of the terrain drive to the location. The area was dark and the elevation was good so the stars were stunning at night. The host Bob was very communicative.
