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.

Burning Man Bus
Love the experience!
I stayed at both the Burning Man Bus and Hilltop Lodge, and while I loved both sites, I preferred Hilltop Lodge. One of the main reasons was that campfires were not allowed at the Burning Man Bus, whereas Hilltop Lodge had an indoor fireplace. However, I really enjoyed both sites. We decorated the inside of the Burning Man Bus with small Christmas lights, making it look incredibly cozy and festive. The beds were exceptionally comfortable at both locations—honestly, the best I’ve ever experienced during my entire Hipcamp adventures. Although the road was a bit rough and confusing to navigate, the trip was well worth it for the view and overall experience. I will definitely come back again!

Dome Home under the Queen Palms
There’s not place like the Dome!
We’ve stayed at two of Christopher’s properties and both were great! my kids 3yr and 5yr loved the Dome because it had bunk beds and a lot rocks to climb, nearby! I loved sitting at the bar in the kitchen, enjoying the view and the cool breeze! Can’t wait to visit again!

Burning Man Bus
Exceptional View! Magical spot!
This is a wonderful spot to camp! The location is so beautiful!!! There is great hiking nearby. I slept really well in the burning man bus and enjoyed meals and coffee in the outdoor patio space with a fantastic view of the mountains. I would definitely recommend staying here!

Burning Man Bus
Have stayed at Bailes Farm at the Hilltop Lodge before and loved it. The Burning Man Bus is another incredible location! Awesome set up with everything you need to “glamp”. Beautiful sunset views from the top of the bus…can’t wait to come back!

Hilltop Lodge Tiny House
Beautiful tiny house
We love staying at the Hiltop tiny house. The free coffe was amazing, we wanted to use the fire place bit it wasn't cold at all, so we are planning to come back just to use it 😀 the place is just magical, quiet and peaceful.
