About Splitrock Farm and Retreat Far Away, Close to Home Splitrock Farm and Retreat started in January 2021 after a global search of a place to set roots, live off the land, and create an amazing place for recreation, relaxation, and rejuvenation. Splitrock Farm Splitrock was part of a 160-acre avocado farm that prospered from 1970 to 2017, generating over 1million pounds of avocados per year until the previous owners switched off the water in 2017. Ben purchased 101 acres in 2021 with plans to harvest the dead avocado trees for firewood and replant with organic, sustainable crops such as grapes, citrus trees, and flowers. Splitrock Retreat Splitrock's attraction comes from its unique groves, magnificent granite boulders, and sweeping vistas. Mixed within the avocado groves are several ancient groves and solitary trees that include 200 foot tall pines, hundreds of old oaks, and soaring palms. Freckled throughout the hillsides are thousands of humongous granite boulders, offering a prehistoric feel to the landscape. Above all, Splitrock offers unrivaled views. Over 40 miles of coastline includes views to Point Loma, the Carlsbad power station, and the Pendleton Hospital. To the northeast are views of near 11K foot snowy peaks of San Jacinto and San Gorgonio, with rolling hills of De Luz and Fallbrook in the foreground.

My favorite new space!🌲⛺️♥️
Such a lovely place. Rocks, trees, water, nature. The land is beautiful, the energy is so peaceful. Clean, private, you have enough space and privacy between camp sites. Love the guardian dogs, so sweet. The hosts are very friendly and flexible, seem happy to help. Lovely service.

Must see camping space
Split rock Farm is an absolute gem nestled between the 15 and 5 freeways making it the perfect spot for wanting to get away without having to drive so far up north. The space was expansive, the farm itself is beautiful and Ben offers everything needed to have an amazing camping experience. We were also visited by one of their Pyrenees who was just the most gentle of giants. Can’t wait to return with a few more friends to throw a larger trip, will definitely be back!

We enjoyed our stay in the airstream. Was nice to have a real mattress and warm blankets at night, and a kitchen to cook during the day. I recommend walking a few minutes to the overlook platform for views from My San Jacinto all the way to the ocean.

Hilltop Hideout with Cozy Cavern
It was such a beautiful site to be among the caverns. It has a really nice sleeping deck with the most amazing view of the stars. It was perfect. We will definitely be coming back. And stay longer. We were not super prepared this trip but now we know what we need to make it even better for our next trip. Defenitely bring a tent and things you need to stay warm. This is not a glamping site. So defenitely plan like you would and bring stuff when you are camping. Come before it gets dark you so you can find things easily as the signs were small and hard to see. Other than that it was everything we needed.

The best experience you’ll have!
The best camping spot ever! Daniel and Ben both were amazing with us, and the camping spot is unequaled! It is really made to give the best experience you could possible have and they have a lot of cute hikes and bouldering around the place! They’re also very dog friendly, it was a first for our dog who never did off leashed before and since the place is fully fenced all around, we felt very comfortable and safe doing it! Thank you again!

The camp ground is fun and has all you need. Had plenty of space for us to roam around and make our own little spaces of rest. Love the sounds of the animals that are on the property. We are definitely coming back.

I booked this as a surprise for my anniversary for my fiancé who loves being away from people and closer to nature. It was better than I expected from the pictures, the dome is huge! We absolutely loved it. I would recommend staying during cooler temperatures as it got warm in there even after a rainy day. There is a fan and a power box you can plug things in to. Bring your own light source if you want something brighter than the led light on the box (but it was enough for us.) Daniel went above and beyond for us, and was so kind and friendly. We felt protected by the two sweetest great white Pyrenees doggos guarding the camp. They were so sweet and loving and would rest their heads in our laps. They were great with our dog too. We would absolutely recommend this site to anyone and everyone.

Daniel made this trip for us. Came up and stayed in the new airstream site for new years. Texted Daniel because we were lost in the fog and found the site a minute later. Everytime we called, Daniel would respond and help immediately day or night. His response was "I'll be there in the next 10mins." It was pretty windy and rainy but we were cozy in the airstream. We didn't use much but everything was in the cabinets lights, blankets, dishes, and cooking utensils, bathroom supplies, etc. Definitely gonna be back to explore more of the beautiful 100 acre property. Would recommend this site if it's raining but you want to get away from the city.

Beautiful Campsite!
The area and drive is beautiful. The campsite itself was exactly how it was described. Very private and a valley all to yourself. The rock formations were amazing as well. Will definitely be camping there again!

Great Private Location
We were greeted by Daniel as we got there. Super chill and hospitable host. Explained all the amenities that were available and even checked up on us over the stay, offering to assist with any trash etc. The property itself is amazing. With the recent rain, there were a lot more greenery than the usual campsites you'd find in the local area. The valley contained a lot of trees that makes you forget you're in Socal. There is also tons of downed trees that you can use for firewood, so much so that you don't even need to bring your own. Kids had fun running around the lower, flatter areas and climbing a bunch of rocks. I'd recommend you bring a fire grate if you plan to cook on the fire because the ring is pretty huge. The 2 dogs came by around 3pm and stayed with us for most of the evening and night. They didn't bark at all unless there were predators nearby or dig into our food unless offered by hand. They were also very friendly with the kids. We were able to take a 2wd car down by the splitrock but it had decent clearance. Overall, our whole party enjoyed the stay and will definitely consider this as an option for any future trips.

Things to consider
Overall was decent experience. However, windows were not clear and opaque. We were not able to see the views from the inside compared to pictures presented in the listing. It was a shame to pay the same price as other people and not able to experience the view :( If the view matters to you then you should wait until the owner fixes the window problem. Also portable toilet was dirty and not serviced at all.

Great spot for adventures
My family of 4 and dog loved camping here. The area is full of spots for adventures climbing on boulders, hiking, hide and seek, etc. The entire 101 acre property was available for exploration. The bathroom facilities were amazingly clean. The host was very friendly and even offered to pick up any items we forgot when he went to town. It rained during our trip, and the dirt roads got muddy and slippery but were still drivable in our camper van. We will definitely return. This is now one of our favorite spots.

Airstream Glamping
This was such a fun experience. The Airstream was beautiful and cozy. Hot water showers, full size toilet, comfy bed, and plenty of room to relax and de-stress. My wife and I loved hiking around the trails and being able to come back and cook a nice meal on either the kitchen stove or the BBQ that was provided. We plan on coming back again. This was a great glamping experience, and I would highly recommend it.

Hidden gem with beautiful views
The Oak Grove is truly a hidden gem! I was only there for a short overnight stay but I really wished I could have stayed longer. The sunrise is breathtaking and my dog and I enjoyed the beautiful landscape. The campsite itself is very well thought out, there is a fire pit at each of the sites and they even provide you with a bucket to safely extinguish the fire before you leave. Daniel the host was very kind to wait up for us and show us to our spot even though we had arrived very late at night. The dogs on the property are so friendly and gentle too. I would definitely stay here again the next time I am in Southern California.

Biking Weekender
Ben’s land & campsite is truly special. It’s admirable how they bought the avocado farm with all of the dead trees, and are in the process of regenerating the land with citrus trees / farm in progress / and a growing campsite - their efforts are clear and if you can appreciate the sheer beauty of rebuilding - then you’ll love this spot for a weekender. Excited to see its evolution in the years to come! The PRIVATE hiking and biking trails to various spots around the property such as “flat rock” and “the over station deck” were a treat for us with our mountain bikes. Highly highly highly recommend bringing mountain bikes / ebikes as it’s the easiest way to see and enjoy the entire property. The awesome host, Daniel, is a total gem. The camp shop has tents, firewood, and various items for sale. Showers are solar heated so expect a CHILL in winter months! The huge polar bear dogs, Holly and Molly were real life angels and we loved their visits. Nearby, Adobe Hill has an incredible property of regenerative vineyards that make you feel like you’re in Napa or Sonoma. Check them out and have a stunning wine tasting! 🍷 The preserve nearby has the last flowing river in Southern California. Perfect for hiking - not so much for biking. Check that out, too. Happy to see that people are salvaging land and we feel lucky and excited to support these businesses regenerating San Diego. Hope you do, too!

The best campsite in California
This is literally the best campsite I have ever stayed in California. Super super clean toilets and campsite, Daniel is very caring and responsive and always there to help you if you need anything. The campsite is private and huge, we are surrounded by the oak trees. Daniel’s two Great Pyrenees are calm and friendly, they even guarded our campsite for the entire night right in front our tent, we felt very secured. Camp shop has everything you will ever need and priced reasonably, I will definitely be coming back again and bring more friends and families.

Beautiful site; avoid after rain
Overall we liked our experience and plan to come back for a longer stay during a warmer month. The property is really pretty and the stargazing was great. However there was a heavy rain 2 nights prior to our stay so the geo dome didn’t have rugs (as they were soaked in the rain, no one’s fault) but the floor towards the back of the geodome leaked so we found ourselves needing to lay down towels and wear shoes when the temperatures dropped low to avoid small puddles. The biggest struggle was unfortunately when our friends arrived, the gate wouldn’t open and we couldn’t get a hold of anyone on-site (we had cell service but didn’t get through to anyone). I think it’s because the keypad and gate equipment is solar powered; that it didn’t work. We were cold and it was getting late and that definitely put a damper on the night. We were still able to enjoy our stay despite those obstacles. The views are great and the dogs that live on-site were really sweet when they welcomed us!

Best camping experience!
Cannot wait for our third trip, have been twice in a matter of 6 months! This place is absolutely one of the best places we have found to camp. Beautiful land, well taken care of and they also offer different ways to stay. From dirt camping all the way up to glamping if that’s your need. The cherry on top of it all? Daniel - helped out when needed, offered a bunch of information all the while making sure we had a killer experience. Try it once - you’ll be hooked! Happy camping!!!!

Split Rock Farm is super cool. Nice open space; scenic; good for hiking, camping and exploring. Our trip was cut short due to rain but we still had a great time. We look forward to going back to check out the other areas.

Ben & Daniel were very welcoming! Daniel communicated with us ahead of time to let us know the details of how to find the campsite, and how to find everything we needed :) Can’t complain about anything. PSA Ben has 2 great white pyrenees, they are SUPER CUTE but when we had a campfire late one night, we saw one of them approaching us silently & we REALLY thought that he was a wolf!! So for anyone who may visit this campsite in the future, if you see a “wolf” it’s actually one of Ben’s 2 dogs haha.
