Welcome to our Field Beneath the Walnut Trees (site 1) with mountainous views. This is the perfect peaceful getaway near great outdoor activities, Clear Lake, and Mendocino National Forrest!

About the Property:

Our property is a grassy field where you can pitch your tents or park your small vans/campers, and it's tucked away among beautiful trees and mountain views that peak out. The open sky is perfect for stargazing, and is one of our favorite things about this property. Bird watching is another fan favorite about our spot! There are horse trails and hiking from your campsite, which are two amazing ways to explore the outdoors here. There are lakes nearby as well, namely Clear Lake, where kayaking and swimming can be enjoyed. We encourage you to check out our neighbor, just 2 miles up the road, aka, "Lodge at Blue Lakes," for boating rentals and daily beach access! We are close to Lakeport (15 minutes) - which has a drive-in theatre, Clearlake, Kelseyville and Ukiah (20 minutes). My personal favorite is Highland Springs Reservoir, an approximate 20 minute drive on country roads. Boating, swimming, hiking and BBQ available at Highland Springs as well. Our property is quiet and off the beaten path, so you can really unplug and enjoy the serenity that nature has to offer. There is no wifi on the property and cell reception is not accessible either - this is a true off-grid experience. 

We are Lesbian owned and managed; LBGTQ and all are welcome here! We are olive growers so you'll have the chance to see our wonderful olive trees on the property if you'd like! Please note that the olive trees hang over our driveway and may scrape the sides of wider vehicles upon entry and exit. We have 3 friendly dogs and will do our best to keep them away from campers so as not to intrude. There is also a rooster on the property and coyotes can be heard in the distance, so if you are a light sleeper, we suggest bringing some earplugs. 

We will have a meet and greet upon camper arrival, and we are around to help with any plans or itineraries that you'd like help with! However, we also respect your space while you are here. We do have other sites, so you should expect to see other campers in passing and in the common areas. The sites are well spaced out, though, and do provide you with privacy.

About the Listing:

Come pitch your tent or park you camper van (larger RVs are not really suitable) on our property and set up camp at the most idyllic spot right under the walnut tree! Our site is equipped with a bath house with hot shower and a flush toilet for your comfort. There is a small outside wash sink and a little refrigerator to share with other campers staying at our campsite. We offer fresh eggs and in-season veggies for you and your company to enjoy. Our water is artesian so drink freely and bring bottles to take some magic home with you! There is also a picnic table for you to enjoy a nice bite to eat.

Additional Details to Note:

- Check-in is after 2pm and check-out is before 12pm

- Things to bring: A camp stove if you'd like to cook while you are here! Also a bathing suit since there are so many water activities and excursion nearby. 

- We do not have wifi or cell reception on site. Please prepare accordingly for your travels and your stay. 

- There is a fire ban in effect, so campfires are not allowed on our property. 

- We welcome your pets! They can be off leash if they will stay away from our chickens, otherwise please keep them on a leash. 

- If you are inviting guests, they must be pre approved with us prior to arrival.

-  Please drive slowly and do not raise dust in our neighbor's driveway to our property. 

Please feel free to reach out with any questions and we look forward to your stay!

What a cool ( hot!) place! We had a lovely mother daughter camping weekend under the walnut tree. Walked across a mesa like meadow past the caboose ,also rentable , to the flush toilets and shower, washed dishes in the outdoor kitchen sink, had a cold drink from the little fridge, scrambled up Jody’s fresh eggs in the morning, got awesome regular check ins from Val the seasoned camp host on her golf cart with her parade of dog characters and her amazing stories of travels, tribulations and truisms delivered with a whimsical good cheer. Visited the Blue lakes (found some places to pull off and scramble down the banks), and visited the Highland Springs reservoir to kayak , float and listen to the cacophony of country, classic rock, electronica and texmex music of fellow picknickers. Incredible expanse of stars in the night sky and apparently Elon’s satellites swoop by. What a great idea to share this lovely olive ranch with friendly campers, thank you!

Val is so wonderful and generous. She gave clear directions on how to get there. My boyfriend and I got to the site in the evening and it was very dark but Val came to save us and talked us through where the bathroom was, she provided some veggies and eggs for us, there was a telescope for us see the stars. She has a beautiful place. We would definitely come back again.

Had an amazing stay at Val’s site! Beautiful canyon with plenty of shade and water. Would love to come back and stay in the caboose someday! Aside from a great night of camping, Val herself was such a wonderful and kind host. After getting our window broken at a lake, Val was so helpful in helping patch it up. The stars are beautiful here and canyon made us feel like we were in our own private observatory. Hoping to come back someday. Thanks again, Val!

Val's campsite is lovely, and Val herself is a *gem* of a host.
She puts a lot of love and respect into the land and campsite and it shows. The site itself was well cared for, peaceful, quiet, w/ a beautiful sky full of stars overhead. The property has two other sites, well spaced out, and we had all the privacy and space we needed. And the bathroom and showers were impeccably clean.

Val herself was so generous and helpful. She made sure we arrived safely and got situated (well after dark) and greeted us w/ fresh eggs and cold drinks that she'd stocked for us in the fridge. She offered great recommendations for the area and we really enjoyed chatting with her about her extraordinary life.

We'd absolutely return. Highly recommended all around!

We had a wonderful stay at val's site! It was easy to find, comfortable, well organized, and beautiful! It was hot in the morning, but the shade from the walnut tree was perfect, and val even set us up with a sprinkler for our kid. Thanks so much, val!

Val was a wonderful host! Her caboose is perfectly appointed. The property is gorgeous and we really enjoyed our stay. The caboose is in a field and there are two other campsites available within view, but far enough away that if your fellow campers aren’t playing music or talking loudly, you won’t know they’re there.

AMAZING. A warm shower!!! A working bathroom!!!! Beautiful views!!! Val was so welcoming and gifted me some of the best eggs I’ve ever eaten. I woke up and told myself not to leave the eggs but darn it I left the eggs in the fridge. The fridge Val stocked with cold drinks! The generosity was beautiful. Thank you.

What a wonderful stay - we pulled off the highway tired after a long day. Directions were great, site is private and quiet. Hosts very welcoming, generous and fun. We slept well, enjoyed the shower and toilet, towels etc. Bird life and walnut trees and that Northern California mediterranean climate and flora all surrounded us. Perfect for what we were looking for.

Had a really nice time here. Stars were bright, air was clean, night was quiet. Our hosts made our stay special. Great conversation, great suggestions for what to do in the area, very warm & personable. Hope to stay here again in the future. This was my first experience w/Hipcamp. Not sure how much better it could have gone. Good times.
