Absolutely a beautiful farm! Ultra friendly host! We loved our campsite! The farm cats provided company and entertainment. Close to town and the river. Much love.

We loved being able to park our camper on their farm, between the walnut orchard and their other farm crops.

Our stay was enjoyable. The sites were nice. The tree swing was sweet. And the picnic table made it that much more comfortable. We did arrive in the dark and there the written directions were not as accurate as one would need. Little directional HipCamp signs on the property when coming in would have been helpful and time saving.

This was our first time camping with hip camp and it was so smooth! Hosts had great communication! The spot was easy to find and nice and flat to setup. We got a melon that was really juicy.

I was passing through Chico area and needed a place the same night. This place was perfect! So easy to find and set up camp, quiet, beautiful spot under a grove of walnut trees and blanket of stars. Didn’t get to meet Francine but had nice email exchange. My first Hipcamp experience—great!!

Beautiful farm!!
My friends and I had such a great time at Walnut Grove!! The farm was easy to find and in a beautiful area. We were able to walk around the grounds, meet some adorable farm kittens, and even pick some strawberries! Francine was very communicative before and during our stay!

Perfect Chico Hip Camp!
Farm camping at Francine and Lee’s was perfect. Close to town and tubing, nice dogs, a beautiful box of veggies and sweet little camping spot.

Camping on a working farm
We loved camping on a working farm. There are only 2 sites. Perfect if you wanted to camp with friends. We had the place to ourselves. Plenty of shade under the walnut trees, with a table, fire pit and washing station. A clean porta potty was available.with a little walk. The host came out to visit with a box of produce from the farm and gave us the run down on the property. We stayed over a weekend so there was little happening on the farm as far as work. Site is a mile from the Sacramento river and 15 minutes from downtown Chico. Easy

Close to Chico but feels remote!
Interesting community ran Farm super close to Chico. Two spots right next to each other under the Walnut Trees surrounded by a large farm area just off the road which isn’t really noticeable. Communal wash station that was super handy. Picnic bench and a fire ring that we didn’t use. Porta Pottie took a bit of exploration to find so take a look for it before it’s dark. Way down to the left near the greenhouse.

We had a lovely stay on the farm. Great site in the trees with a fun swing. Seeing the farmers working in the mornings was a treat. Definitely recommend.

So nice and perfect
This was a last minute trip for me - I just wanted to get away and this appealed to me. I never met Francine although my neighbor had and had good things to say. On my table was a bag of lovely lettuce, spinach, oranges,, and walnuts! I motorcycle camped this trip and it was perfect. Nit, but not a deal breaker - the outhouse being way far away. Thanks Francine - I hope you keep your campsites available.

Fabulous camp site! Hosts are super friendly and gifted us with a large bag of fresh walnuts and kale. We didn’t use the outhouse or sinks, but I’m sure they were just fine. We car-camped and loved the fire pit and picnic tables. It is such a beautiful, clean, serene spot - Highly recommend!

Chill place to pitch a tent for the night or even longer as a home base to enjoy the area. It has all the basics and the fire pit is a plus. And the swings on the trees! You're able to walk the property to stretch your legs a bit. Francine was very friendly and offered up places to go which the helpful information in the provided binder also gives. The produce bag gift was beautiful - I cooked up some of the spinach right away and the oranges and walnuts are delicious. Another (nice, cool and respectful) camper was in the other site and the area felt spacious enough to accommodate a fully booked campground ;-)

Lovely time in beautiful grove
Our group really enjoyed our stay at Grub Farm. The sites were very spacious with plenty of room to spread out. Receiving the veggie/nuts box was such a sweet extra touch. Our dog loved running up and down the Walnut groves, and even with a full moon the stars were super bright. We used our stay at the farm as a launching point for a mini tour of breweries around Chico and would highly recommend it. It was so close to town, yet felt remote.

We joked that camping in the walnut orchard was a perfect bed and breakfast, because the fresh walnuts were a perfect breakfast!!!

Nice Camping Spot!
Nice spot to camp under a walnut tree. My dog and I enjoyed the stay and had our own private area with no other campers in sight. Got a great tasting cantaloupe too!

In the cool shade of a walnut tree
A very interesting spot under a big walnut tree with excellent sunrise viewing. Port of potty was pristine and there was plenty of space for us to spread out and enjoy the scenery. Highly recommended!

Serene Stay Close To Town
I had a lovely stay at Walnut Grove on a stopover between Portland and Central California. I got in late due to some storms so I didn't have as much time as I would have lived here, but the time I did spend was great. Francine put out a solar lantern for us to help light our way since it was dark when we got in. The campsite was clean and easy to find, nestled between some walnut trees. It was equipped with a fire pit and a picnic table, and there's a sink area that is shared between the two tent sites. The portapot was very clean and just a short walk away. It was a bit windy when I stayed there but no bugs and overall very peaceful. In the morning I enjoyed walking my dog around the beautiful farm, it was a great way to start the day. Francine also left us a bag of fresh veggies and walnuts from the farm which we made into a big delicious salad the next day. I also really loved exploring Chico a bit before I had to get back on the road. The town center is only about 10 minutes from the farm, and I found it very charming with great food options. I look forward to returning and hopefully will have time to swim in the river next time!
