Site 1 - Walnut Grove on Organic Veggie Farm
This site has so much potential and the hosts seem like lovely folks, but for $50, I could stay in a state park that would be so much better maintained. The fire pit here looked a hundred years old; there were the remains of fires made right on the ground that had never been cleaned up. The very useful sinks were full of mud and leaves. The folder on the table with info had been left out in the elements for who knows how long, pages were water damaged, some completely wiped out. The toilet is a port a potty on the other side of the farm. All of that could be corrected with minimal effort - we didn't need the sink or the fire pit. The point for me was that this site wasn't "hosted". For $50 it was a spot on a dirt track. If even minimal care had been taken or some preparations made, it would have felt completely different. I don't need or want luxury but a Hipcamp spot should be more than a place to park. The hosts did give us a wonderful box of produce and nuts that we appreciated.

Great quiet spot!! A little on the pricey side but there isn’t much choice in the Chico area.

Some pluses, some minuses…
Big rig friendly: 3 (provided you make the right choices, needs maintenance - shrubs/trees encroaching on space). Customer service (response time, etc.): 5 Site instructions: 2 (instructions on HipCamp site stray from actual HipCamp signs); unclear where site 1 is or site 2. Unclear where to park. Features (nice touches): 1 (LOTS of Puncturevine / goat heads on the ground/attaching to soles of shoes - painful to step on; decrepit fire pit (full of ashes, leaning over); ropes on swing seemed frayed…) Noise: 5 (None!) Cell reception: 5 View / aesthetics: 5 (nice sunshine over the fields, walnuts to gather/eat) Value for money: 1 (feels expensive for what you get) Rating: 3.375, rounding down to 3 due to value for money. If the price was 30 bucks, we wouldn’t be as critical.

Beautiful working farm!
Wow. I was in awe of the amount of different vegetables, fruits and trees on this farm. It was incredible to stay and be a part of it for even just a night. The camping spaces are very flat and spacious. Justine was responsive and accommodating. I would love to stay here again!

Francine's site amongst the walnut trees is quiet, spacious, and perfectly level!

I had an immediate need to find a place for the night and Francine responded quickly to texts. I had the area to myself. It was quiet and the night sky was amazing. Thank you, Francine.
