Old West Mountain Camping Near LA!

2 sites · RVs, Tents100 acres · Acton, CA
Learn more about this land:A vast expanse of oak trees, California Junipers and rugged, mountainous land running with jackrabbits, quail, and owls that is just 3 miles from Vazquez Rocks and the PCT, our ranch transports you. From the tent campsite, you look out for 20 miles and see nothing but nature across small mountains and canyons all the way to the peaks of Angeles National Forest in the distance. The campsite is a large flat area. For a trailer or RV it's a great place to park and the view is towards wide open spaces. With a tent or if you want more pure nature, you can drive out onto the property further towards the small ruin of the old homesteader's cabin or beyond. The property has a long-abandoned gold mine and circular arrastres where miners used mules to break up rocks. Nearby Acton has pick-your-own apples/pears/peaches at Bloom farms. We are at 3000 feet with strong sun during the day and cool mountains air at night. The camping is set away from structures, but if you want to stroll, closer to the ranch buildings, we have friendly small goats you can visit if interested and horses and a donkey to say hello to across the corral fence.

Camping @ Quail Run Ostrich Ranch

8 sites · RVs, Tents62 acres · Lake Hughes, CA
Run by three generations, our ranch has been in our family for more than 70 years. We opened our doors to the public in 2014 to help support feeding our animals, bred and rescued, after the Powerhouse Fire almost burned us out. We’ve survived a county quarantine(2018-2019), the COVID Lockdowns (2021-2022), the Lake Fire (2020), and the Hurricane Kay burn scar debris flow and flood (9/11/22), depending on hard work and strong family and community bonds. In addition to camping and educational tours, we host private and community events, grow & sell produce and eggs, hatch and sell chicks, rescue ratites, and support the local bee population (which gives us RAW honey to sell), and are working to open a private U-pick-by-appointment orchard. We are all animal lovers, and conservationists, and try to do our part to ensure our children inherit a healthy and viable world. This is our home where we live, work, love, and play. We enjoy sharing our space with visitors who we hope learn about ostrich and make some great memories.

Urban Glamping at La Boheme!

2 sites · Lodging1 acre · Los Angeles, CA
This historical 1904 Craftsman home, known as The Liddell "La Boheme" Home, is nestled on 1/2 an acre of land smack in the middle of Los Angeles' hippest, historical gem: Highland Park. When on the property, surrounded by fruit trees and rolling hills -- you can't believe you are in a city, let alone Los Angeles! I was introduced to the delights of Glamping at El Capitan in Santa Barbara which was amazing and I wanted to stay there forever!! -- BUT with a busy city life of raising kids and building my own small food business -- I wanted to jump from Glamp-life to City-life (and back again) with more ease and share it with others. In my opinion, the beauty of So-Cal living is that you can literally spend the morning surfing in Malibu and that same evening find yourself skiing in Big Bear! (After 25 years of living here -- that reality still amazes me) To mirror this unique juxtaposition - at La Boheme, you will find a tranquil Safari Tent Glamping experience - with hiking/biking trails and all sorts of outdoor activities anywhere from a 5 minute walk to 30 minutes away by car---- but you can also hop on the Gold Line train (which is a 1 minute walk out the back door) and in choosing one direction, you are a couple of stops from Chinatown or Downtown LA's rich cultural experiences & exciting nightlife. If you decide to explore in the other direction, Metro's Gold Line (in 1 stop) will take you to the heart of Highland Park's bustling scene - offering a smorgasbord of eateries, coffee-shops, speakeasies, boutiques, yoga studios and art galleries - including LA's oldest bowling alley: Highland Park Bowl. Take the train further and you're in the heart of glorious Pasadena (home to The Rose Bowl and exceptional Norton Simon Museum)-- or continue out to beautiful Sierra Madre -- where there is hiking and exploring galore! At La Boheme you can grill onsite, order take-out, dine out, stay-in and book a personal masseuse (that will change your world!) You can find places to hike, bike, play tennis, come back and shower (with hot water) - enjoy some bubbly with your honey on the deck -- take the train downtown to catch a concert at the Staples center -- Uber back - light the chiminea -- roast a s'more or two and crawl into your super comfy REAL bed in your REAL Safari Tent! Remember -- this is URBAN Glamping -- a friendly reminder that there can be normal city noises throughout your stay -- like a Fire Engine answering a call - or the train running behind the property -- or a kid crying in the apartment next door. It happens. Life happens. Of the several people who have already enjoyed the Glamping experience of La Boheme -- normal city noise/life hasn't dampened the experience at all-- only made it more intriguing! There is both a fan for air circulation and/or "white noise" as well as a heater, if you should need either of them. Plenty of extra blankets are available as well as a cot if you are a booking for 3 guests. La Boheme also is a venue for weddings and other events -- so we love hosting and want to do whatever we can to make your stay the best it can be for you! Please reach out with any questions or recommendations for the area. If you are new to the area - definitely spend a little time Googling ALL that is available to you - and I'll do my best to fill any blanks-- ha! Looking forward to meeting and hosting you at La Boheme. - Hillary

California Poppy & Wildflower Field

17 sites · RVs, Tents2 acres · Lake Hughes, CA
***CALIFORNIA POPPIES & WILDFLOWERS ARE CURRENTLY STARTING TO BLOOM THROUGHOUT THE ANTELOPE VALLEY. SUPERBLOOM IMMINENT! 2024 The wildflower and poppy season generally runs early March to end of April. Camp amidst the flower fields on our gorgeous rolling hills and views as far as the eye can see! **Amazing Stargazing! No light pollution! One of the best places near LA to enjoy the constellation covered night sky! 2.5-acre desert property in the foothills near the Antelope Valley California Poppy reserve, with stunning stargazing, sunsets, and sunrises year round and overflowing with millions of blooming wildflowers in the Spring. The property is filled with endless, amazing panoramic mountain, hill, and valley views. Tons of dirt roads and trails through the hills in total raw natural beauty for you to explore and enjoy the true beauty of nature, just a little over an hour from Los Angeles, and still in LA County. Immerse yourself in this secluded sanctuary and untouched nature, leave refreshed and ready for all that life has in store. We have amazing camping at this site and our other properties year round. Please ask us about our other Hipcamp listing "High Desert, Joshua Trees, and Views", only 20 minutes north of this one! Also, we offer monthly and annual memberships with major discounts, as well as Unlimited camping passes! Follow Us @CaliforniaCampingClub ***Some things to please be aware of: - This is off grid camping! No markers or specifically defined campsites are present, we provide exact GPS coordinates. All sites are dispersed camping in the wildflower fields! We intentionally leave the property unaltered to preserve the raw natural beauty. - Our site is about 2 miles from the nearest paved road (HWY 138) It’s all dirt roads to get here off of HWY 138, through the hills. For years we have found 2WD is more than sufficient to get here, as long as you drive slow, and don't stop on hills you should be fine. However, some campers have found that not to be the case for them and wanted 4WD, so come prepared either way. - If you are unfamiliar navigating using GPS coordinates or with off grid camping, our location may be hard to find and may not be a good fit for you. - It can get very windy sometimes so come prepared to snuggle up in the back of your car or camper and enjoy the stunning stars, sunrises, sunsets and views. - It is considerably easier to navigate with a little daylight. - We are happy to provide you with a map as well upon request, which seems to be the most direct route. Feel free to reach out and we will help you with whatever you may need, just ask! Thank you and we hope you enjoy your stay! :)

Camping near Glendale guide

Overview

At the eastern edge of the San Fernando Valley, Glendale is ideally situated between LA and Burbank. Once you’ve seen the sights (and noshed on Armenian cuisine), hike nearby Deukmejian Wilderness Park, see Griffith Park, or explore the trails at any of the three national forests nearby. Campers can also head to the coast to enjoy the sun, sand, and surf, or hit Los Angeles for Hollywood glamor and more culture. There are plenty of options for Glendale camping, from private RV parks in the San Fernando Valley with full hookups and deluxe amenities to scenic state parks and beaches with tent sites, RV sites, and cottages. For simple sites, try the national forest campgrounds.

Where to go

Greater Los Angeles area

Campers can stay at a private RV park in the San Fernando Valley near Glendale to be close to the city and all the urban amenities of Los Angeles. Head to the coast to enjoy the pier at Santa Monica, Venice Beach, laid-back Long Beach, or catch some waves at Huntington Beach, and camp overnight near the water at Bolsa Chica State Beach and Crystal Cove State Park.

Malibu and Santa Monica

Head west to the Santa Monica Mountains to escape the urban bustle, and explore the rugged terrain and Hollywood history while camping overnight at Malibu Creek State Park. Enjoy glamorous Malibu and the sun and surf at Malibu Lagoon State Beach, or combine beach and camping at Point Mugu State Park and Leo Carillo State Park. Further up the coast, enjoy the American Riviera at Santa Barbara, and camp near a beach at Carpinteria State Beach.

National Forests

The Angeles National Forest sits just northeast of Glendale. Enjoy hiking, horseback riding, waterfall chasing, wildlife viewing, and choose from more than 50 campgrounds with tent sites, RV sites, and cabins. Further east, the San Bernardino National Forest has more rugged wilderness, peaks, forests, and popular lakes like Lake Arrowhead and Big Bear Lake, plus plenty of camping options. For even more wilderness camping options, head to Los Padres National Forest or Cleveland National Forest.

When to go

Summers are the most popular time for visiting Glendale. The weather is ideal for outdoor activities, especially those involving water, along the coast, and at the many area beaches. Visit in the spring for dazzling wildflower displays, especially at Deukmejian Wilderness Park. Crowds are also smaller in the spring, fall, and winter, which offers generally mild weather. Visit in September for the Glendale Arts and Music Festival.
