Chris and Meggan own Prospector Ranch which is an 1800's style ranch located right next door to the acre used for Hipcamping.  The ranch is made up of their home and is also a venue for filming, photo shoots and small events.  When not being used, camping guest are welcome to enjoy the area down around the authentic saloon, use the picnic area under large Oak trees and hike the property. They purchased the ranch 3 years ago and love being outside of the city in the mountains. Star gazing is a must when staying there!  The camp site is NEXT DOOR to Prospector Ranch which is our 1800's style ranch tucked away in the Santa Monica mountains, close to beaches, vineyards, amazing hiking, biking to the beach and the city! The wide open empty lot looks out at the beautiful mountains. Enjoy stunning sun sets and Picnic under the grand Oak Trees at the ranch or maybe come by the saloon next door for a cold beverage if we are around. :-). We are happy to point you in the direction for what ever you want to do.  There are so many things to do in Thousand Oaks!

Beautiful
Prospector Ranch is a beautiful peaceful place. The horses, authentic feeling saloon and covered wagon make for great ambience. There's a nice hike off of the property with a great sunset view from the top! Thank you Meggan for your hospitality.

Not as secluded as we expected but very charming and very fun communal spaces for eating/hanging. It’s a cute spot, fun with friends!

Great for echo cliff climbers!!
Prospector Ranch was a little slice of heaven for us after a long afternoon of climbing at echo cliffs! This is a great option for those who need a spot to camp out if all the campgrounds are booked. Only 20 minutes from the Mishe Mokwa Trailhead. Meggan was so sweet and hospitable. Our experience honestly couldn’t have been better. Highly recommend!!

Beautiful, private campsite
This campsite had gorgeous views and amazing star-gazing. The site has water and electric hook ups and is immediately next to a small ranch with a unique saloon and lovely period-era decoration and landscaping. Meggan was a very responsive and gracious host. Both the humans and the dog camping loved exploring the property and enjoyed the mini-equines. The campsite is located quite a distance from the main house on the property and is very private. The site is sloped, however, and we needed plenty of blocks to level our trailer.

The place has lot of privacy, in the middle of the ranch, very calm and peaceful. Megan was a great host all the time, making sure that we arrived and we were settled. My only advice for future customers is that you need to have some experience leveling the airstream or RV as the ground is not completely flat. Apart of that is a great great choice!

Meggan was very welcoming and helpful. The hang out area with the old fashioned western feel makes you feel like you are somewhere special, and you are! A fun drive to the beach and to local breweries made for a good time. Would definitely stay again.

Don’t miss Prospector Ranch!
Meggan was a terrific host and made sure we had all of the information we needed prior to arrival. She went out of her to greet us and familiarize us with her gorgeous property. It starts with a saloon refreshment and pictures and then a quick tour of the accommodations. It’s also super close to the freeway while feeling dropped into a mountainous, rural setting. Tons of recreational options from hiking, wine tasting, bouldering, etc with the comforts of electrical hookups and potable water. The property and the owners are fantastic!

Meggan’s ranch is a DREAM! It was so incredibly peaceful and quiet - it definitely does not feel like you’re only 8 minutes from everything you would need in Thousand Oaks. Meggan is an incredibly attentive host and made my stay so comfortable. I would go back in a heart beat!

Meggan and Chris were excellent hosts. They were very understanding of our late arrival time and worked to help us get set up even taking a break from their Valentine's day dinner! Their property is very secluded, nestled in the beautiful mountains. In addition to the views, there is plenty of animals and wildlife to enjoy - jack rabbits, chipmunks, blue jays, and they are surrounded by other ranches who have horses. They also have an 1800s style saloon that you can take pictures in and enjoy with a lovely table for to have a nice outdoor meal. The whole place just had a great vibe and it's not far out from the city but it feels like it is. We really enjoyed ourselves and appreciated our hosts very much. They were very generous and responsive. My family and I would definitely stay here again.

Can’t wait to get back!
Meggan is the greatest camp host of all time! Property is amazing, flattest zone I have ever set my tent on. She was absolutely going the extra mile even cooked some lasagna for me and the boys! Ten stars Meggan you are the best. Can’t wait to come back!

Wonderrul country setting in an elegant environment. Quiet and peaceful. Surrounded by mountains with beautiful sunsets. Hosts were very hospitable and helpful if we needed. Welcomed us with a lovely platter of fruit, snacks, candies. Stayed on a very large and level plateau, with a comfy sofa, chairs and table overlooking scattered mansion estates in the valley. Thank you Meggan for our extraordinary stay.

We spent a couple of days over Thanksgiving here and we couldn’t have been happier. Meggan and Chris were fantastic hosts. We forgot our 120v to 30 Amp hookup but Chris was more than happy to go out and purchase one for us. Meggan delivered fresh muffins and a rather welcome bottle of Pinot noir. This place is a real private retreat, with wonderful Mountain View’s and serenity. It’s a short trip to the trails and Malibu beach. The ranch is modeled on the gold rush era with its own saloon. Book with confidence and have a private quiet retreat like we did. Thanks Meggan and Chris for being spectacular hosts.
