Splitrock Farm and Retreat

67 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents101 acres · Fallbrook, CA
About Splitrock Farm and Retreat Far Away, Close to Home For more information... Visit our website www.splitrock.camp Instagram page @splitrockfarmandretreat. Tag your photos #splitrockfarmandretreat #SplitrockFAR #farawayclosetohome Or, contact the Camp Host through Hipcamp direct message or the direct line 760-645-5431. Splitrock Farm and Retreat started in January 2021 after a global search of a place to set roots, live off the land, and create an amazing place for recreation, relaxation, and rejuvenation. Splitrock Farm Splitrock was part of a 160-acre avocado farm that prospered from 1970 to 2017, generating over 1million pounds of avocados per year until the previous owners switched off the water in 2017. Ben purchased 101 acres in 2021 with plans to harvest the dead avocado trees for firewood and replant with organic, sustainable crops such as grapes, citrus trees, and flowers. Splitrock's attraction comes from its unique groves, magnificent granite boulders, and sweeping vistas. Mixed within the avocado groves are several ancient groves and solitary trees that include 200 foot tall pines, hundreds of old oaks, and soaring palms. Freckled throughout the hillsides are thousands of humongous granite boulders, offering a prehistoric feel to the landscape. Above all, Splitrock offers unrivaled views. Over 40 miles of coastline includes views to Point Loma, the Carlsbad power station, and the Pendleton Hospital. To the northeast are views of near 11K foot snowy peaks of San Jacinto and San Gorgonio, with rolling hills of De Luz and Fallbrook in the foreground.

Campo Nopalito

6 sites · Lodging15 acres · Valley Center, CA
Welcome to Nopalito Farm! We’re so happy you’ve decided to spend some time on this beautiful property! In case you’re interested, here are a few interesting things about our farm. Nopalito Farm has been in operation since late 2014, but the property itself has been a working farm for over 50 years. Lemons and avocados were the primary crops from the 70’s through the 00’s, and are still prominent throughout our 15 acres. Our predecessors then diversified the growing operation by planting a wide range of fruit trees ranging from guavas and passion fruit to peaches and figs. For a decade, hops were grown on 2 acres and were sold to breweries throughout southern California. We’ve since replaced the hop yard with perennial flowers, but continue to cultivate a wide variety of delicious fruits.

Camping near Irvine guide

Overview

Wedged between the Pacific Ocean and the Santa Ana Mountains, Irvine is something special. Gaping canyons and wild beaches create an outdoor hub that draws campers from across Orange County. Thanks to the trove of state and regional parks, you have plenty of ways to soak in that California sun.

Want to sleep to the sound of crashing waves? Head to Bolsa Chica State Beach. Enviable surf fishing, ocean-front RV camping, and coastal hiking trails make this a popular spot.

To see the Pacific in its rugged beauty, check out Crystal Cove State Park. Coastal cliff hikes, backpack camping, and scuba diving are right at your fingertips. Just a few miles away, Bommer Canyon is a step back in time. Here, you can explore multi-use trails or stay overnight in an old cattle ranch camp.

More camping options await at O'Neil Regional Park, a 4,500-acre paradise in the Trabuco Canyon wilderness. The park also offers group camping and horse camping. If you're just spending the day, pack some sandwiches to enjoy at the family picnic area.

Are you looking for some large-scale California adventure? Limestone Canyon Regional Park boasts some of the best mountain biking in Irvine. Meanwhile, Caspers Wilderness Park is a favorite for hiking and horseback riding through sandstone canyons.

Beyond the parks, you also find a host of seaside cottages and RV parks. They're great for those who prefer to camp in comfort with picnic tables, WiFi—the works.

Like the rest of sunny Southern California, Irvine boasts fair weather and great temps year round. As a result, most parks and campgrounds are open in all seasons. Just be sure to book early if you're camping in the summer.
