Enjoy Camping near our small pond with smaller vehicles (high tops okay). This site has a small fire ring and is a bit further back with decent privacy. The site is drive to, room for one car on site, if there are guests in the rear site 3 there may be traffic past this site. (however if no one is in that site you will have access to it as well.)

Be sure to check out our other sites as there will be different views and accommodate different guests.

All sites Includes use of our common area bath shack with large open air propane shower, flush toilet, and also our common area kitchen with outdoor sink, grill, and stove. 

We also have a common area fire pit with lots of chairs.

Off grid homestead to me means being self contained with no wires or pipes to the outside. Boondockers and other off grid camping are welcome and small solar setups are available to see and learn. Water is clean from artesian well run by generator as needed to fill multiple storage tanks on property.  

Guests are welcome to take a walk back to the pond, check out our multiple short trails (in progress still) and to check out our other sites.

There are many ways to park vehicles at each site and anything that is clear and mowed down can be driven on. Firewood is also available, $5 per bundle.

Our property is primarily 21/up as we do drink and have adult conversations often.

(please let us know during booking)

Any pets or children allowed MUST be supervised at all times, our property backs up to a large forest so getting lost is possible if left to wander.

Matt and Rachael are amazing hosts! They are very friendly and informative. The entire experience was so wonderful.
The outdoor kitchen and the cute shower house was a great bonus. Will definitely be going back!

Nice wooded spot to pitch our tent along our southern bike trek. Easy to find off highway 20 near Hollister. Basic site with nearby bathhouse, water and outdoor kitchen available. Matt and Rachel were responsive and welcoming hosts. Definitely recommend for a convenient tent stay.

Matt's place was really fun! A bit out of the way, but very worth it! He was generous with the firewood, and gave me a tour of his solar/off grid homestead. Flush toilet, lights around at night so I could see. I would totally stay there again!

Although it was close to their home it was very private. There’s a small pond to just look at and breathe in the fresh air. The bathroom had hot water which was awesome. Our first experience and it rocked!

The first night was great. Met Matt right away and he was very informative of the grounds and the area to camp. Seemed like a smart and good dude that was stoked on life. Hung out by the pool and fire pit with great music and conversation. Definitely a spot to hangout at if you like unplugging for awhile and having good vibes all around. 🏄🏼‍♂️🙏🏻🏴‍☠️

Campsite was great. Nice amount of room, space for tent and parking. Plenty of privacy, a fire pit, and Matt ( the host) had extra fire wood for sale in case you run out.

Simple and easy. Thats what camping is all about! Thanks Matt.
