✴️ Preserve @ Temecula Creek
7 sites · RVs, Tents40 acres · Aguanga, CaliforniaWelcome to The Preserve at Temecula Creek! Our mountain getaway is 40 acres of remote wilderness surrounded on all four sides by Cleveland National Forest and has been set up exclusively to offer a unique and memorable camping experience to our guests. Sleep under the stars high on a ridge overlooking a valley that runs through the property or set back amongst the native chaparral. The Preserve at Temecula Creek makes for an ideal basecamp for exploring Cleveland National Forest. High Point Truck Trail cuts right through the NE Corner and will take you another 20 miles up through the backcountry with access to great hikes and views to see along the way tot he High Point Fire Lookout and picnic area at the pinnacle of the Palomar Mountains. We love this land because it is very remote, yet it is accessible and connected. You will have strong LTE cell service (we use Verizon), and are less than 10 minutes up the road from Rancho California Resort with a restaurant, bar, washrooms and a market that sells food, drinks and supplies. Within 30 minutes you can be at two different casinos, at Temecula Valley Wineries, enjoying the nightlife and dining in Old Town Temecula. Within 45 minutes you can be hanging out in the famous SoCal mountain towns of Idyllwild or Julian. Come for the day, stay for the night, or stay a few days. We bought this land to preserve and enjoy it, and would love to have you as our guest. For additional information that shows both properties and all of our sites click on my host name in HipCamp and drill down from there. If you are a first-time visitor, we’d also encourage you to visit our website pupterra.com to see everything that we offer and join the Pupterra Exploration Club for 10% off all bookings. We also provide information, pictures and videos through our social channels @pupterra and YouTube Page for Pupterra Adventures. We send all guests a virtual welcome packet 48 hours before their reservation that supplements all of the information contained within your booking details and contains videos, maps, nearby hiking trails and local recommendations.

Splitrock Farm and Retreat
8 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents101 acres · Fallbrook, CaliforniaAbout Splitrock Farm and Retreat Far Away, Close to Home 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 Retreat 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.
