Holcomb Valley Ranch invites you to kick back and relax on our private, 400+ acre ranch in the San Bernardino Mountains. Centered around a 100+ acre meadow, filled with horses in summer months and surrounded by thousands of acres of mountainous National Forest. Just 15 minutes from Big Bear Lake - a large recreational, fresh-water lake for summer swimming, boating, skiing, fishing and other super fun water activities. The Ranch feels remote and private. Yet is only four miles to the town of Big Bear with shopping and restaurants. Also in close proximity to incredible rock climbing at the Pinnacles, seemingly endless hiking and biking and some pretty epic off-roading 4x4 trails. Each campsite is approximately one acre, and generously-distanced from neighboring campers. Amenities include its own fire ring with grilling grate and picnic table(s). The campsites are both cozy enough for 2 or spacious enough for large groups and can easily accommodate a mix of RVs, camper vans and tents. From June to October the 100+ area open meadow is filled with horses grazing and galloping about (please don't pet or feed!) A four-seasons destination, the Ranch has year-round experiences with warm summers and snowy winters. An excellent basecamp, within close proximity to the lake, ski slopes, Pinnacles, hiking/biking and off-roading trails. After a day filled with adventure or ultimate relaxation, be sure to enjoy the breath-taking sunsets over the meadow. The evenings blanket guests with a sea of stars. Toast up some s’mores and warm up some hot-coco over a beautiful, crackling campfire. Remember the s’mores and always follow the “Leave No Trace” principles. There are large trash bins by the entrance. We look forward to hosting you at the Ranch! Please note: OHV’s are allowed. They count as one of the allowed vehicles per campsite and must adhere to the speed limit (10mph) and remain on established camp roads while on the property. They may not be driven from 8pm to 8am. It is strictly forbidden to ride your vehicles through the forest, meadow or off any established roads on or off property. Please research which of the surrounding forestry roads allow for your vehicle type to be driven on.  Campsites on the west side of the meadow (F, G & H sites) are partially accessed by a forestry road that does not allow dirt bikes. Horses: The horses which may be roaming the meadow during your stay are not property of Holcomb Valley Ranch. When horses are present, guests and their pets are prohibited from entering the meadow. Please do not approach, interact, feed or touch the horses. This is for your safety and the safety of the horses. Do, however, take lots of photos!

An excellent basecamp, within close proximity to the lake, ski slopes, Pinnicles, hiking/biking and off-roading trails.  PRICING: Many of our campsites are large enough to accommodate large groups up to 20 people. To be fair in pricing to both the intimate small groups of two or three people as well as the larger groups, we have set our pricing to reflect a per person rate. We have a base rate that reserves the campsite and accommodates two adult guests. Each additional guest is $25/ person per night. Kids under 10 years old, dogs, horses and other family pets stay for free! ACCESS AND DIRECTIONS: Please pay close attention to the driving directions we provide. Your GPS may suggest you take Van Dusen Canyon Road or Rim of the World Drive, however, we highly suggest you take Polique Canyon. It is the most direct. The Ranch is about 15 minutes or 3.5 miles up Polique Canyon, on the left. Polique Canyon is a forestry road. An AWD or 4x4 vehicle is recommended. However, it is passable by both large RVs, towed trailers and small sedans. Just take it slow and watch out for fallen rocks and divots.  CHECK-IN: Between 2PM - 8PM. CELL RECEPTION: Verizon gets pretty good cell reception at the Ranch. Other cell carries are pretty spotty. WATER: We have several fresh spring water spigots throughout the Ranch with potable water..  FIRES: Campfires are permitted at the Ranch unless the Forest Service institutes a fire ban in the surrounding national forest or high winds are expected. Firewood is available for purchase on-site (Cash Only). Just ask your camp host for some bundles when you arrive. After a day filled with adventure or ultimate relaxation, be sure to enjoy the breath-taking sunsets over the meadow.

Great experience overall
Overall is a great experience the site was very beautiful …the only minor thing was the gate was locked mid morning the next day when I was trying to leave and I had to drive a little bit off the path to exit but that’s no big deal.

Great Ranch/Campsite
We loved camping at Holcomb Valley, the site was beautiful and secluded. We were able to buy firewood on site which was helpful. Our dog loved running around in the woods off leash. The only issue was upon check in. We booked the site last minute so maybe that's the reason, but the reservation confirmation had no site number designated. When we arrived we couldn't get ahold of the host from the number given by Hipcamp. Thankfully, another guest arrived at the same time and was able to let us into the gate. I had to find another camper who gave me an actual cell phone number for the host. Once we got that number, the host was very attentive and all was well. But if we hadn't met those two separate campers to help us along the way, I think we would've been lost. I think Hipcamp may need to update the phone number to the host. I would come back again.

The Ranch is amazing. Had it all to myself. C4 is a really good site. Amazing views and right next to the massive meadow. Trails for days and also trials to go offroading. Easy to super challenging like the infamous ... John Bull. It's so beautiful, I wanted to stay later. The Stars and Sunset as well as the Sun in the morning, amazing. The sound of the wind blowing through the 🌳. The place speaks volumes. My plan is to check out a few more of their sites. This was a recon trip, planning on bring others so we can do it right. This place is sooo awesome.

One of the best camping spots I’ve been to! Will definitely be coming back here next season. So much space, the views of the meadow is beautiful, and so peaceful and quiet. The staff at the ranch was very welcoming and helpful. 10/10 would recommend!!
