Site 1 - Old well ranch you will love it
I was traveling back to San Diego with my pup and this was a great site to pitch a tent for a couple nights. Tim is super friendly and even gave me some brownies to take on the road with me! I had lived in San Diego for 10 years and never ventured out to the Jamul area - it's really beautiful! Would definitely stay again.

Tim was a great host! Very friendly and accommodating. I will say the Hipcamp directions link did not take me to his house, it was a set of coordinates and not the right location, so input his address instead. Also know that there is no Verizon service in the area. Tom has Wi-Fi, but it was hit or miss depending on where you stood. The Lyons Valley Trading Post is less than a 10 minute walk from his location and allowed me to use their Wi-Fi.

Wonderful first experience!
This is our first experience of hipcamping and we loved it! Tim is very friendly and has great stories. The area is quiet and he provides water, stove and storage for supplies. We overpacked because our site already had a stove, fresh water, table and chairs. We are also 30 minutes from town just in case you forgot anything. We were also an hour from Julian and great pies! Tim has lived here for decades and can give you tips on where to visit.

Fun experience, Tim was a great host and brought us donuts in the morning! He also provided running water to our camp site and there is a nearby toilet/shower. Thank you. Ask him about the "Dog house".
