Amazing views
Hipcampers say this spot has amazing views.
Learn more about this land: A vast expanse of oak trees, California Junipers and rugged, mountainous land running with jackrabbits, quail, and owls that is just 3 miles from Vazquez Rocks and the PCT, our ranch transports you. From the tent campsite, you look out for 20 miles and see nothing but nature across small mountains and canyons all the way to the peaks of Angeles National Forest in the distance. The campsite is a large flat area. For a trailer or RV it's a great place to park and the view is towards wide open spaces. With a tent or if you want more pure nature, you can drive out onto the property further towards the small ruin of the old homesteader's cabin or beyond. The property has a long-abandoned gold mine and circular arrastres where miners used mules to break up rocks. Nearby Acton has pick-your-own apples/pears/peaches at Bloom farms. We are at 3000 feet with strong sun during the day and cool mountains air at night. The camping is set away from structures, but if you want to stroll, closer to the ranch buildings, we have friendly small goats you can visit if interested and horses and a donkey to say hello to across the corral fence.

Perfect spot to visit Vasquez Rocks. Directions to an actual site once in the property were a little sketchy, but all part of the adventure. We were alone among the beautiful surrounding hills, which is exactly what we wanted. Up in the morning, 15 minutes later, at Vasquez Rocks, just as the gates opened.

Great city escape
Great spot for a few days away from city life. We booked a few days over Thanksgiving to get some mountain views During the day was sunny but did get cooler at night, lucky we had our diesel heater Plenty of trails near by for a hike. Managed to get to the top of the mountain for a great view

We had a great time at Allen’s. We did arrive late so did not get to see too much but the space was very relaxing. They have the cutest dog!

This was our second time staying at the site and, again, had a fantastic time. My wife, 2-year-old, and I showed up in the afternoon and easily made it to the campsite. We visited with the horses and goats, which was a hit, before dinner and a cold beverage as we watched the sun silently set over the mountains (mixed with intermittent bursts of excitement from the toddler). One of the hosts, Sara, was awesome, and helped us with the goats and fresh eggs (phenomenal), and we got to learn a bit more about the property. She was also super communicative, as we arrived a bit later than anticipated after stopping at a local orchard on the way up. The actual camping spot is huge and flat, so you could really setup a tent anywhere. There's a helpful picnic table right off to the side as well. Thanks again - we'll be back!
