We have 155 acres of the Sierra foothills just ~12 minutes from downtown Murphys. This is a working farm where we specialize in cut flowers and also grow a little food. When available we offer bouquets/eggs/veggies as an add-on. We also have plenty of firewood to scavenge or you can buy a nice stack of dry oak. There are a few different listings, so make sure to read the details on your specific listing! -Soup Kitchen -End of The Driveway -1 Pine -2 Pine -Bus -Camper There’s the Soup Kitchen which has 3 sites listed but there are a bunch of good tent spots available. The End of The Driveway is one big site for buses/RVs/big vans next to the Soup Kitchen. 1 Pine and 2 Pine are up a separate driveway on the ridge. Then there’s the bus and camper, which are located in the main part of our property when you pull into the driveway. This is also where the camp host can usually be found. The 1st area to park/camp is the “Soup Kitchen” near the flower garden where you can enjoy an outdoor shower, kitchen space and established fire pit (see pics of the Soup Kitchen). This area is down the driveway a couple hundred yards from where we usually are so you’ll more or less be on your own, depending on if we have work to do down there or if there are other campers. We are happy to chat or leave you be, just let us know what your needs are. If you’re looking for a more isolated spot, see the listings for 1 Pine or 2 Pine. The 2nd area is “1 Pine” accessed by our second driveway that is 100 yards down the road from the farm. The driveway is kind of rough but definitely manageable with a truck, SUV or sedan if you’re willing to go for it. The drive goes up a couple hundred yards to the hilltop where there is a clearing and, you guessed it, 1 pine tree. From the back of the clearing there is a trail that leads you to 2 Pine, which is a walk that takes just a few minutes. 2 Pine is walk-in only but has great views of the sunset and is totally secluded and private and would be a good spot to either bring some friends for a little sunset party or for someone who wants to seriously unplug. There are plenty of flat spots to pitch a tent. **if you are a teacher or Pacific Crest Trail hiker let us know! We are happy to offer a discount :)

Really friendly. Reasonably private space and lovely. Very reasonably priced - really liked the spot for the price. Also, it's definitely worth visiting the Mercer Cavern if you go. And the drive to Lake Alpine was easy. We'll be back.

Awesome spot, great host!
Beautiful location close to all the sites in the area. Private camp site and cool hang out area + hot showers make this place special. Ben was a great host and showed me the hiking trail on the property. Chickens and goats and beautiful flower gardens were an added bonus! Cheers and thanks for hosting:)

Dispersed camping with a view
Great dispersed camping spot for campers who are pretty self sufficient. The area is large and flat surrounded by manzanita. Highly recommend bringing your own shade. Beautiful views all around, great for sunsets and stargazing. There is a rock fire ring. You can walk down the hill for water and bathroom facilities if needed. We enjoyed the peace and quiet. It was a great spot for jumping off to other adventures up Highway 4.

The place is very rustic so be prepared to walk quite a bit to the only outhouse they have on the property. If u bring your own toilet just make sure it’s able to withstand some uneven terrain. It was very beautiful place with lots of wildflowers and a good dog along a working farm. They got good working outdoor showers be aware they have creek somewhere on property so be prepared with mosquito 🦟 spray.

The Soup Kitchen
Overall we had a nice time camping for 2 nights. The sunsets are pretty over the ridge, the outdoor shower was great and it was pretty quiet with other campers nearby. The sink and potable water in the saloon was convenient. Would could’ve made it better is if the grounds were better maintained. There was some trash at our site and the area could’ve used some weed whacking.
