This land has been a community gathering space for the Native's Ceremony and Healing Space for over a thousand years. Feast your eyes upon the Matates and traces of the people that once gathered here so long ago. Upon the mid 1800's we had a Settler named Nate Harrison find this to be the ideal space, and he set up homestead here, and lived an amazing full life. He was to become the first African American to aquire land here in San Diego County, and his homestead remains to this day; studied by archaeology students to this day. Sensitive habitat and magic lies within our gates, and we must approach the mountain as we would any sacred space; with RESPECT. We welcome you to enjoy Nate's land and inspire who you are deep inside your heart.

Camping at Harrison Serenity Ranch
This place was awesome. The road up is a little hilly and in slight disrepair but I was able to make it with no dicey feelings in a Prius. If I can do it, so can you :). They have outdoor/indoor showers, fresh spring water for drinking, indoor/outdoor bathrooms, 2 rad dogs that are friendly AND A GOAT NAMED GREGORY THAT IS THE HIGHLIGHT OF THE WEEKEND. Bring bug spray since we were bitten by mosquitos pretty frequently but it’s worth the drive up for the view alone. 10/10

Great campsite!
Always love staying here! The hosts are great and it’s a beautiful view. The yurts are clean and beds are cosey. Also about 15 minutes from the state park at the top of the mountain for sir great hiking and exploring.

The site was beautiful and Nicole was accommodating and helpful! The only thing was the dirt road was a rough ride.

The property is something special. Stunning views and beautiful old growth trees. At night their is spectacular view of all the stars without light pollution. The sky was breathtaking.! Vicky is a wonderful hostess and steward of the land. She knows the history of the land and is keeping the stories alive. This is the perfect place for people who want a quiet get away. Serenity Ranch is the perfect name for this beautiful mountain getaway. We will be back!
