Havilah Pines homestead

· Havilah, Kern, California
2 acres hosted by Danny K.
2 RV/tent sites
Located in the national sequoia forest, Havilah pines homestead is a unique place, we are in the middle of a canyon, rural and remote but not too remote, do note that there is no cell service here but we do offer wifi service for a fee. the closest town and Lake is about 20 minutes away. we have the cleanest air in Kern, blue skies most days and stars during the night like you have never seen them in the city! it can get toasty during the day, but once that sun goes behind the mountain it cools off that some times you want to put something on! We are a micro farm growing organic food and practicing non GMO sustainable organic farming methods even our animals eat only organic non GMO feed, among our livestock are chickens, turkeys and guinea fowl, they happily free range on the homestead and produce delicious eggs, if you haven't eaten eggs like free range ones then you must try them! the taste is light years different than the store bought ones... It is a quite and peaceful place(except the roosters and guineas), at night you hear crickets and frogs and early in the morning wake up to a pleasant tune of wild bird's symphony.

Beautiful space! Everything is as described. I do wish there was a picnic table at the site (don’t know why I didn’t think to bring my collapsible one). My dogs had a blast. Creek is seasonal which was a bummer but we were close enough to Lake Isabella, where we were able to let the dogs and kids play in the water!

Overall Danny was a very pleasant and accommodating host. WiFi access for the day was $20 and was required to pay for each day of stay with no other option. Firewood bundles were 40% more than the gas stations down the street and had less wood. However, the eggs were worth every penny and were delicious. I ended up finding a gorgeous dispersed camping site 40 min away on the Kern River with sweeping views at no charge. At the price point I was a little disappointed but happy to have gotten familiar with the area.

Easy car camp
Had a lovely stay, just 1 night. Loved the creek, and the croaking frogs. The oak tree provided good shade. Saw the cat as she stalked around on her rounds of the property. Wish she came to say hi! It was easy driving to get there, 2wd hyundai had no problem, but it's still pretty private, and we were right there with the landscape. We could see the top of mt breckenridge through a clearing in the trees! Also loved seeing a bunch of scrub jays up close. Fire pit was amazing. I recommend getting extra firewood. Also, last but not least, those eggs! WOW! We brought a lil skillet just to cook those, and it was absolutely worth it. With just butter & salt the eggs tasted so delicious, with a flavor so rich it was almost like fried chicken.

I surprised my dad for his 60th with a camping trip to this site. It was perfect! The area was secluded and the owner lived a bit up the hill. He was super nice when we got turned around (we are directionally challenged). The instructions given are very clear though. He was very kind and walked down to campsite with us. The site was very clean, great fire pit, nice to have a make-shift bathroom as well. I would highly recommend this place.

It was a beautiful sight! Camping under an oak tree was very lovely too. We could hear an owl in the distance which was really cool too. Danny was an amazing host, he also provided us with great instructions on finding the property, which helped a lot.
