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'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.

The Oak Grove Communal Camping
The pictures that were online were outdated and looked like they were taken back when they had just opened the camp grounds. The place was not like what was advertised. The grounds were not well kept. The gate was wide open when we got there and left open so anyone could enter and there was no staff on site unless contacted. There was a junk yard upon entering, farm animal poop everywhere, clutter left over from previous campers, the way finding signs were unclear, and the make shift patio looked unstable. Our campsite itself had no flat ground for car camping. The view was amazing from the lookout spot and the shipping container bathrooms were decent, when contacted the owner was friendly, but the rest of the camp site was not a nice surprise. My partner and I got a bad feeling about the place and left after being there only for an hour. I requested a refund, the owner said yes and then changed their mind.

The Oak Grove Communal Camping
Great campsite! Filled with plenty of spaces to choose to post up camp. Very easy check in and stayed for one night. Bathrooms are provided and a public kitchenette area. Campfires are permitted in designated areas. Would definitely come back!

The Oak Grove Communal Camping
My friend and I took a last minute girls trip and definitely enjoyed our stay! The goats that come around are adorable! We took our opportunity to go see them and hang out with them and they were extremely friendly and loving. One thing we really struggled with was finding our campground. Even with the signs, it was a little confusing to figure out which spots were actually open sites. We are new to dispersed camping so that absolutely played a role in it. We drove around for about 30-45 minutes just feeling unsure. I can’t say that that reflects on the hosts at all though because when we finally decided to reach out for help, they came and guided us to our spot very quickly. They made it much easier and we regretted not reaching out ahead of time. We did run into another person who didn’t come to camp but came for the goat yoga and had 0 idea where to go and missed half of the yoga class because of it. It seemed like struggling to find a specific location on the site was a consistent issue. Again, not a reflection of the hosts but just as a heads up for any future visitors. Overall, the fire pits, restrooms, animals, sites and people were lovely. Would definitely come again.

Splitrock Valley-The Portal
Cozy stay
My son and I stayed the night at Splitrock. Overall it was a great experience, we enjoyed the glamping area without other guests around and felt very much in the wilderness…. with two confortable beds! The site has running water, a nice fire pit and a table with two chairs. It is right next the split rock. The other camps are nearby but the landscape offers some type of privacy. The tent was set with two comfortable mattresses and bedsheets. We were not cold or hot at night. Upon arrival there is a map you can scan with your phone and the host sent explanations to find the campsite but it was still difficult to find the campsite and know where to park. The signs are fairly small on the dirt road. It took us 20 minutes to know where the common showers were (in the area called Little Oak Grove). I am driving a Prius (very low bumpers) and we could drive around but I would recommend a better car, especially if it is raining. It was lovely to use the games in the common area and hang out with the goats, sheep and lama in the morning.

Peaceful Valley - Peaceful Rock (G)
very rustic
I will preface this with the fact that the camp and Hipcamp issued is a full refund for our two nights- we stayed only one. The location is lovely and beautiful. A more accurate description for the camp would be rustic. The facilities are not what is advertised. Filthy flush toilet a 10 minute walk from our site. Never found the showers and did not see anyone to ask. The camp store and amenities listed are worn and weed covered or broken. However, the sites looked well planned with quite a bit of privacy. If you want a very rustic experience, this is your place. If you want clean bathroom and other amenities, then this is not for you.
