Splitrock Farm and Retreat

31 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 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.

Bailes Farm

4 sites · Lodging80 acres · Fallbrook, CA
One of the last remaining undeveloped parts of Southern California, De Luz Heights is located adjacent to the Cleveland National Forest, and the Santa Margarita River (just a few miles from the campsite). This 12-month flowing river is the only one in Southern California that has never been altered or dammed by humans, and features a state-managed hiking trail with many water holes along the way with clear, clean water to dip into. On my 80 acres, there are no major roads going through or next to the property. My land is 13 miles from the Pacific ocean and enjoys a relatively mild yearly climate. Giant boulders provide topographical relief and offer platforms from which to enjoy the view of the nearby Santa Margarita Mountains. The valley views are filled with olive and avocado groves, vineyards, and horse ranches. The Camp Pendleton Marine Corps base is nearby, so you might hear some artillery in the distance on some occasions. The campsite embraces all the comforts of "glamping": a hot shower, composting toilet, beds with sheets provided, gas grill with a stovetop, pots and pans, kitchenware, a sink, picnic table, shaded deck, sofa, lounge chairs, and propane fire pit. The basics are provided: toilet paper, paper towels, purified drinking water, towels, sheets, cooking oil, etc. Campers need to bring their own blankets. I've created a network of hiking trails for especially fit hikers looking for a more rigorous hike than the nearby Santa Margarita River Trail. My trails lead through creek beds, over boulders, through rocky crags, with views of the Pacific ocean on a clear day. Hikers on my trails need to wear proper hiking boots with good traction. Sections of my trails will require bouldering with hands and feet. Expect to have fatigued quadriceps, some scrapes, and a sweaty hat brim. The campsite is accessible with a two-wheel drive vehicle; I drive a Kia Forte out there regularly. However, some tips when driving a two-wheel drive car: when going uphill on a dirt road, try to keep some momentum of about 12-15 MPH. If you stop and try to start again, your tires will spin out. If that happens, just reverse down the hill, and try it again with more momentum.

Camping near Newport Beach guide

Overview

South of Los Angeles in Orange County, Newport Beach attracts throngs of tourists with its sandy shores and well-developed tourist infrastructure. There are tons of other things to do in the area, from checking out the exhibits at the Newport Sports Museum and the Orange County Museum of Art to taking a ferry ride out to nearby Balboa Island to having a campfire at Corona del Mar State Beach on the edge of town. While you can't camp at Newport Beach itself, there are some great campgrounds a short drive away at Crystal Cove State Park.

Where to go

Elsewhere in Orange County

Orange County has some of the best beaches in Southern California, from nearby Huntington Beach—a favorite among surfers—swanky Laguna Beach, shopper-favorite San Clemente (which also has beach camping), and the beaches of Catalina Island. This compact county is also home to plenty of fun attractions, including Anaheim’s own Disneyland.

Los Angeles County

The county north of Orange County, Los Angeles has all of the perks of a big city—from fabulous restaurants and nightlife to world-class museums—plus tons for lovers of the great outdoors. Some of the best beaches are in the Malibu area, which also happens to have lots of private and publicly run campgrounds, both by the beach and in the inland hills.

San Bernardino County

If you’re a fan of the desert, you’ll love San Bernardino County, home to the Mojave National Preserve and portions of both Death Valley and Joshua Tree National Parks. The county also encompasses much of the San Bernardino National Forest including Big Bear Lake, a popular forest getaway for Angelinos.

When to go

Newport Beach is a fun place to visit year-round, with mild winters and hot summers, but most people come here between July and August, when the temperatures are at their most ideal for swimming, though it’s usually hot enough to get in the water well into September or even October. If you want to beat the crowds, come in the winter, when the surfing conditions are at their finest. This is also the best time of year for spotting migrating whales.
