Great campsite and host!
Philomina was very responsive and made sure we had everything we needed. She also checked up on us through messaging to make sure we were okay. That was very sweet of her. Her property manager was very friendly and greeted us when we arrived. He made sure to answer any questions we had.
The place is amazing! It was very well stocked! We didn't expect it so we did bring a lot of our own. Everything on site was clean. The campsite was big and had a lot of room. We love how there were not many bugs (mosquitos or wasps) bugging us while we are eating unlike some camp sites we have been to.
Some advice for others, it does get hot in the day time but since we weren't at the site during most of the day, it was fine with us. We did bring a canopy to create some shade. At night, it can get very cold, so bundle up during your sleep.

We had a great weekend. The outdoor kitchen is handy to wash dishes. Nice clean toilet always a plus. The directions were clear and it was easy to find. Next time I think we will bring some shade structure as it was pretty hot in the sun, there was one shaded spot under an oak tree, but always had to move our chairs around. Beautiful night sky in the evening. Thank you for sharing your beautiful space.

This campsite set the standard for me and my partner for what to expect on this app.
It was clean, beautiful, quiet, and had everything we needed for a peaceful and loving retreat. The host was unobtrusive and welcoming at the same time.
10/10, highly recommens

Camping with animals!
Beautiful property with all the space your dog will need! We took our puppy here for her first camping trip ever and It was incredible. Thank you Philomina for allowing us to create this memory! Ps. The Stars at night are up close and personal.

We enjoyed the amenities (bathroom! Dish washing sink!) but enjoyed that they were not too close to the campsite--instead we were surrounded by open space! We were there purposely to do nothing but read (respite from busy lives) and this space was perfect for us. There were a lot of birds to watch including a turkey who walked through the campsite several times, to the delight of the dogs! Luckily we always keep them tethered. Hopefully someday in the future we won't be in a megadrought and the firepit can be used, it looks just perfect.
The site does overlook a road but it does not get much traffic and we did not feel it impeded our comfort during our 4 days there. Also if you are bringing dogs you may want to avoid foxtail season.

This was one of the best Hipcamp sites that I've ever stayed at. It's beautiful, well equipped, and very private.
Philomina was an amazing host too. She was super responsive prior to the trip and left us a bunch of goodies at check-in. She even allowed us to check out later than expected. This is a great site for larger groups- I highly recommend it.

Beautiful and peaceful getaway!! Great view and awesome place to relax, unwind, and disconnect. Philomina and her husband are outstanding host. They treated us like family. So grateful for their loving hospitality. Definitely a place we recommend if ever you are looking for peaceful place for the whole family. You should come!

Beautiful site, wonderful host! Super clean and well equipped. Interlake Rd is right below the site so there is some traffic you can see and hear but the overall beauty is great!

Great Experience Would Come Again
The camp site is a really nice area with everything you need no tables or chairs needed the owner had made everything possible to make the camping experience a good one by providing bathroom, cooking essentials and lighting heater and hot water will be coming back again.

The space was spacious and had some great views. I was very impressed with the kitchen (it probably has more cooking gear than mine at home) bathroom and other amenities. It was nice to have a warm shower after being in the dust all day and I really enjoyed having multiple shady areas set up to stay out of the sun. The road down the hill really didn’t bother our group at all and there was not much traffic on it after nightfall or during the morning. It was also easy to communicate with the host! Having a few spots with reception and a bit of solar electricity to charge phones and lights was an unexpected bonus.

The outdoor kitchen and bathroom were truly amazing. We'd happily return because of that alone. The kids brought their bikes and rode them up and down the dirt road and had a blast.
After dinner, we setup camp chairs by the tents and watched shooting stars.
The only minor downside is that, as you can tell from the photos, you're basically pitching your tent on a dirt road. We had a great time and that didn't bother us.

We really enjoyed this camp set up :) we needed a quick semi-local getaway and this was perfect. Wish we had a bit longer to explore more, but our stay was exactly what we needed! There were so many details of care on this property, stars were awesome and the area was quiet while we were there. Vehicle noise did not bother us one bit. PERK -- there's an actual toilet, sink and shower! One thing I would have enjoying knowing in advance is a caretaker lives on the property at the bathroom area. He was really nice, it was just something I was unaware of and probably would have liked knowing in advance. We would stay again if needing a close getaway!

Great little getaway!
Dora-Rozi is the perfect little spot for a weekend getaway. Very convenient, quiet, and well appointed. We made great use of the outdoor kitchen and appreciated all the effort that’s gone into making this a special place to visit.

Beautiful and peaceful location! Had all the space and amenities including an outdoor kitchen, bathroom, and patio. Philomina was incredibly helpful and responsive. We stayed here to breakup the trip to Big Sur. Woke up at sunrise and drove 2hrs to Big Sur. Great pit stop.

Dora-Rozi was beautiful and secluded! Well maintained property with tremendous views and lots of sights. Strongly recommend.

The host was very helpful, gave clear instructions on how to get to the location. While I did not get to spend too much time at the location because just camped overnight. It was a very peaceful place. I recommend it.

Our 2nd stay at Dora-Rozi was awesome! So many new additions to the site since last year: veggie garden, expanded restroom, and expanded kitchen area. Everything was clean and kitchen and bathrooms were stocked with essentials. Chris was so generous and brought us 3 bags of ice after our first 24hrs there, life saver! Thank you again and we will see you next year!

Wonderful, quiet retreat….
We stayed on Sat. 8/21/21. It was a nice location perched over little hill. I could tell the owner(s) put a lot of attention to create this retreat. Amenities are spotted on, restroom was clean…5 min walk from ⛺️.
Owner kept contacting to make sure we get there & get settled without any what’s and where`s….
We were the only group of 3 on the day, stayed only one night …will surely come back…thanks Philomina for the fruit and offers of coffe, tea, Gas grill etc….

Peaceful, golden hills
A lovely, peaceful place, high up in the golden rolling hills. Warm rays of sunshine for sunset and crisp, silvery light for sunrise.

Wow this place - so grateful.
Wow this place! Unbelievably gorgeous, seriously. My wife and I both felt blown away by what we could only describe as the incredible generosity of this site, how it's set up and how it's hosted. Philomena was super helpful in every way, making sure we had what needed, even leaving a delicious treat for us that was again, incredibly generous.
The night was so peaceful and quiet, and the stars were out of this world (literally and figuratively ;). My wife and I were hanging out in the gorgeous outdoor kitchen as it got dark, and when we stepped out of the light - wow! The Milky Way was unbelievable, especially coming from a very bright city.
In short - this is a true gem, and we will be back over and over again, anytime we need a quiet, peaceful, safe, beautiful retreat. Feeling very grateful for this experience.
** Quick pro tip about finding the place: apple maps tried to tell us it was in a ditch a little ways down the road, and there was very little service - fortunately just enough to load it in google maps, which actually got us there. Philomena also tried to help but again, little service. So just use google maps from the beginning and you should be fine! **
