15 acres of land right nestled up against South Mountain, on an ecologically-minded property where we are building a sustainability education center. From your campsite, you'll have a sweeping view of the Topa Topa mountain range, as well as a birds eye view of our community farm. Site has access to a geodesic dome, a funky spot to hang out, meditate, do yoga, or picnic. There is one electric outlet to plug into. Behind the site is South Mountain, where you can scramble, look for fossils from the Sespe range (20 million years old) and enjoy some peace and quiet.Pitch your tent or park your campervan (a large RV would be challenging) on a beautiful plateau beneath the face of South Mountain. You'll have the hill to yourself, and can enjoy sweeping views and seclusion. For those bringing small animals, know that there are coyotes and the occasional bobcat, so keep pets within sight - esp at dawn and dusk! The site is just 10 minutes from downtown Santa Paula, with an historic main street, restaurants, and old town charm, close to several hiking areas, and a 40 minute drive to Ojai. With prior arrangement with hosts, we can offer a dinosaur tour for kids and interested folks of our collections, 8 partial triceratops and a fabrication lab where we are 3D printing missing bones, and offer a small piece of dinosaur bone as a keepsake. We are working to build a science center in Ventura County, our garage/warehouse is full of artifacts, including what must be the largest collection of late-cretaceous dinosaurs in the County! For film buffs, this property was the former ranch of actor/hearthrob Steve McQueen.

I loved spending a night at the Eco-Farm! The site was secluded and very peaceful and it was so neat to see all the different structures around the property! Anna was a lovely host and getting to the location was super simple. I’ll definitely be back!

A very special stay
A really lovely backdrop right in nature and yet not far from the little town or Los Angeles. We used the water and electric with no issues. My sons, husband and I were so inspired by Anna & Marcus special collection of fossils as well. A real treat and probably our fav hipcamp so far!

Beautiful land and great host
Anna is a great host and her property was perfect for our quick family getaway. We had to leave a day early bc my husband wasn’t feeling well. She issued a refund for the night we missed, which was really kind. We look forward to coming back again soon.

Just what we needed!
A beautiful spot to camp! Anna’s instructions made it very clear how to arrive to our campsite and she was responsive throughout our stay. The geometric dome was a really unique feature like no other!
