Malibu Creek Orchard Retreat

3 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents40 acres · Calabasas, CA
A retreat in a steep canyon with beautiful ridgelines in the Malibu Creek area. Private camp spots and hidden trails away from it all, but yet so close. Only 30 Minutes from the Santa Monica Pier or 15 Minutes to the beaches of Malibu, still it feels like being a world away. You wouldn't expect nature to be so pristine and exciting that close to the city.

Rock & Tree

17 sites · RVs, Tents36 acres · Perris, CA
It's so nice to "meet you" my name is Taryn and my hubby's name is Anson. We are parents to two-year-old twins, so saying we have our hands full is an understatement. Anson is a folk and blues musician and has traveled all around the U.S. playing his music and I work for a children's book company. One day, we decided that we wanted to live the rest of our lives hosting live music, and events 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, re purposed 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. Anson and I continue to build everything ourselves with the help of our friends and family every now and again. 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. During the pandemic, we turned our venue into a campground so we could open up the venue to people who needed to get out into nature. We are now open for daily camping and private events. You can follow our journey on our Instagram.

RV camping near Arcadia with campfires guide

Overview

Arcadia sits at the base of the San Gabriel Mountains and offers stunning views year-round. Stay in town and visit  Los Angeles County Arboretum and Botanic Garden, where peacocks roam free. Or travel west toward Malibu for beach camping and hiking in Topanga State Park. A bit north, primitive tent campgrounds and RV parks are available at Saddleback Butte State Park, where campers can explore granite mountains and Joshua trees. Or stop by Big Santa Anita Canyon for birdwatching and swimming by the Sturtevant waterfalls. Central to everything Los Angeles has to offer, Arcadia is a perfect home base for active campers.

Where to go

Big Santa Anita Canyon

About 15 minutes north of Arcadia in the Front Country, Big Santa Anita Canyon (popularly known as "The Canyon") features miles of trails and lots of camping options. Primitive tent campsites are first-come, first-served—free permits may be required to camp. Among the six campgrounds in the canyon, many are equipped with picnic tables, firepits, concrete pads, and wood grills. After setting up camp, birdwatch or splash in the Big Anita Creek, or discover the beauty of the Sturtevant Falls along one of the 12 hiking trails.

Saddleback Butte State Park

An hour and a half north of Arcadia takes campers to Saddleback Butte State Park. Saddleback Butte is a granite mountain top that towers thousands of feet above Antelope Valley. Take the 2.5-mile hike to the peak on trails lined with creosote bushes and Joshua trees. Equestrians can ride on horse-friendly trails throughout the valley, as well. Pet-friendly campsites are first-come, first-served and can accommodate tents, RVs, and travel trailers up to 30 feet. Many campsites in the park also have fire rings and BBQ grills, as well as shade and wind blocks.

Topanga State Park

Topanga State Park sits in the Santa Monica Mountains near the Pacific Ocean. Explore geological formations like earthquake faults and marine fossil beds. Then hike some of the 36 miles of open grassland trails surrounded by live oaks. Mountain biking and horseback riding trails are also available—many lead to stunning Pacific Ocean views. Since Topanga Canyon is within Los Angeles limits, some trails, like the unpaved Mulholland Drive or Eagle Rock, offer views of the city. In nearby Malibu, campers can sightsee and beach camp at several campgrounds that offer drinking water, fire rings, RV hookups, showers, and flush toilets.

When to go

Campers can visit Arcadia year-round. The city has hot, arid summers with clear skies and very low humidity. Average temperatures are in the 80s. Long, cool winters are moderate and mostly dry. November through mid-March see average temperatures below 70°F. Campers may want to return in spring and fall to experience migratory wildlife, as well as desert, mountain, and valley foliage blooms.
