If you've ever wondered what it might be like to camp on the moon, this is it. Completely removed from civilization and surrounded by a barren nature that is alive with the subtle presence of the universe. Seasonally, Spring wildflowers burst across the landscape. Cave paintings of Chumash Indians remind us of those who lived before us. This is where the deer and the antelope play.聽 Our Carrizo Camp is surrounded by the Carrizo Plains National Monument. This is truly a get away from it all camping. The preconfigured trailer will sleep two and the site is provided with water and fresh bedding for each booking. That's it. You, the coyotes and your own private moon. Our Songdog Camps are sparsely scattered atop a 200 foot mesa that looks west over a valley offering stunning desert sunsets. Our Lodge, Ranch House and Glampsites are available on occasion. This is our home but we love to share our life in the outback. We believe it will give you a better appreciation of life's simpler side. There are two sites where RVs are welcome.聽 This land was sparsely populated by the Chumash Indian and is evident by the numerous cave painting that remain here in the Caliente mountain. In the era of the California Missions, this land was a part of the Spanish land grants. Currently the property is privately owned and is adjacent to large sections of publicly held lands.

Site 4 - Songdog West Campsites
Been coming here since 2017 and always love it! It's secluded, quiet, beautiful and calm. Love that it comes with a fire pit, picnic table, water, nearby bathroom, benches and allows dogs. The sites are spread out and the sunsets are beautiful! The road up to the site can be a bit bumpy, but the directions are clear and it's easy to find. And I had cell service (verizon) the entire time . Also I didn't discover until recently but there is a great coffeeshop/restaurant about 17 minutes up the road at Cuyama Buckhorn - highly recommend as well. And Carrizo plains is always a nice stop as well. Thank you Jim for sharing your beautiful land!
