Nice location, upsetting facilities
The host was pleasant and easy to communicate with. However, the bathroom and shower situation was quite disappointing, especially if guests seek locations with proper facilities. This made the stay uncomfortable for a large group.

A taste of nature/wildlife
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Frank's property for many reasons, starting with the serene, peaceful atmosphere and the variety of wildlife, including turkeys, hawks, deer, blue jays, and even some friendly kitties. The spot by the pond was spectacular, and my wife remarked that this was the best place we've camped to date in terms of peace, quiet, and privacy. Frank is a great host who communicated with us to ensure we were settled in and to answer any questions about the facilities. Overall, experiencing this wonderful campsite nestled in the woods near the town of Julian was a cherished event for us, and we plan to return next summer.

A perfect small town getaway
I came with 9 of my friends and we had the absolutely best time. The site was clean, green, and had all the amenities we needed for a good time (picnic table, fire pit, toilet, water). We were not near any other campers and felt like we had the space to ourselves. Communication was very clear from the beginning and we were taken care of during the entire trip (we were able to get more water when we ran out and when Google maps took us to the wrong place on our drive up Frank came to get us) We took the 2 boats out into the middle of the pond and had a lovely swim— truly felt like out of a story book. A major plus is that the town of Julian is super sweet and has the best pie. I would absolutely recommend and hope to come back.

Frank’s communication was accurate and timely - made it a super fun and easy trip. Property was large and beautiful. Bathroom was clean. It was quiet, lots of wildlife and gorgeous for looking up for a dark night sky filled with stars
