Nomad Meadow Tent Site (Walk-In)
Helpful host and peaceful stay!
I had a great stay at Diana's land. Before and during booking, Diana was very responsive and clearly communicated everything I would need to know. She was super helpful and very accommodating throughout the entire process. I arrived to hand written note and a lovely map of the property that let me get set up quickly and get to enjoying the serenity of the space. The homestead is nice an quiet with a great view of the surrounding landscape. I popped up from San Diego for a nice, peaceful evening and was not disappointed. Wildlife everywhere and no other folks around. Loved it!

SoCal Oak Woodland Safari
Amazing camping!
My family and I loved the Safari tent at Diana’s land. The view was beautiful and the place very peaceful. The proximity to the village makes it easy to access a grocery store if needed, but when you get to the place you get immersed into nature and forget about city noises. Diana is a wonderful host, very helpful and available to answer any questions. Making s’more and watching the starry sky were the highlights for my daughter. We’ll definitely be back! Thank you Diana!
