Lovely Place to Rest
We had a winery event in Lompoc and this was a perfect place to park our bus for the night. Flush toilet is a bonus (and very sweetly appointed), and even though, as some reviews mentioned, the road is close, it’s not very loud at all. Will definitely return

Cozy Spot On The Ranch
Joanie's land was more than a pleasure to camp at ! Considering the price and the proximity to Lompoc, this Hip Camp is an amazing deal and you should absolutely book it. The hosts were friendly and very accommodating. They were nice enough to provide electricity to charge up our e-bikes on our trip across California. With a real bathroom this place has the comforts of home but your camp stay will feel authentically rugged on beautiful land. Happy with our stay at the amazing Rancho Relaxo, and would be happy to come back (:

Wow! So close to the city center. 10 miles from beach. Joanie was extremely accommodating and it was refreshing to have such a wonderful camp host!!

Staying at Joanie's land was super 'relaxo'. We cooked dinner looking at turkey vultures (or were they red tailed falcons?) flying over, enjoying the last rays of sun. Afterwards we headed into town - Joan and her fellow 'ranch mate' gave us loads of good tips of where to taste wine (PCH Street) and where to play pool (the Irish bar). Lompoc was very nice to us and it all started at Joanie's ranch!

Starry Night
Starry nights, owls hooting, and wind blowing through the Eucalyptus trees...just some of my favorite things at Joanie's. I have stayed here many nights and find it to be very safe, relaxing, and joyful. I highly recommend this little camp spot. Thank you for reading.
