A sacred property with healing and grounding vibes where the winds speak. This property was loved by it's previous owner for decades before the Stagecoach Fire in 2020 unfortunately took their home. With their blessing, we aim to retain the peace and beauty of this mountain while giving it some TLC.  Learn more about this land: 🏕 Site Details Below ⬇️ Red Mountain Retreat is your peaceful getaway from the city in the Kern River Valley. Have a section of a mountain to yourself to decompress from the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles. Just a quick drive from the city into the Seqouia National Forest, you'll be tucked away while only minutes from Lake Isabella and the Kern River where you can enjoy fishing, boating, hiking in the Sierra National Forest, Soak in the Hot Springs in the Kern River and wind your day down with a beautiful sunset in the forest with a fire going (season permitting). We are a brand new campsite and do not have a ton set up yet but we wanted to begin to share the beauty of this magical mountain as soon as possible and so here we are! It's a simple set up for now but it's a work in progress ;) ✅ We have built fire-pits for you to use, please only use the fire pits while you can tend them. We have strong winds and so you MUST douse all fires with provided potable water before you go to bed or leave the camp.  ✅ This is a LEAVE NO TRACE campsite and we require you to bring your trash out with you. We truly appreciate your understanding with this. Thank you! ✅ We have a porta-potty on site currently for you as we set up something fancier ;)  ✅ There is wildlife here so please be aware and practice caution. You may see deer, wolves, coyote, cattle, and we've even heard of bear here. Please be aware to not leave food out unattended and pack it away at night.  ✅ We are actively working on and improving the site, so please refrain from approaching the work site on the main pad at the front of the mountain. Parts of the property had a run in with the Stagecoach Fire in This property fell victim to the Stagecoach Fire in 2020 so we are giving it some TLC.  ✅ You may bring your pet if they are friendly enough but please keep them to your site and on leash if they tend to run off as we have no fencing to stop them and other campers may not be comfortable around animals. Of course, we would truly appreciate you cleaning up after them as well. ✅ Most of us tend to get service at the front of the mountain here which is great news for those who still need to keep in touch a little bit. With the worksite active, you'll be able to use the front parking area for service.  🌱We are 420 friendly however, please keep to the designated areas when smoking. We hope you continue to check back in with us as we continue to create your sacred escape from the city! This site's details are below...  🏕 Site Details 🏕 Site #1 The closest to the front of the mountain, by the parking area that has the easiest access. The rest of the sites require a small uphill walk around the site. So if you need something that's easier on the knees, this is for you. Once our bathroom is set up this will also be the closest site for convenience. **A small camper van could fit on this site with enough room for a space by the fire pit. Once you pull into the parking area, you'll see a campfire to the right, with a large flat tent area that you could also park your small vehicle in. Please check out our other sites to see if there's a better fit for you. Site #2  A cozy tent site in the middle of the high ridge with views all around. There is a small stairway up from your parking spot to the tent site and fire place. There is enough room for a small tent here. Once our bathroom is set up this will be just a 2 min quick downhill walk. Once you pull into the parking area, follow the road ahead to the right. You'll see Site #1 with the pull-in site and next to it a small area for you to park and bring your things up. You'll be on a beautiful part of the ridge where you can relax under the trees and among the natural rocks that bring this site so much character. Please check out our other sites to see if there's a better fit for you. Site #3  One of our larger sites that sits back on the highest point of our mountain by the water tower with beautiful views on both sides of the mountain. You'll come up into the camp, through the parking lot and turn right to drive up to the end of the driveway to your campsite. You can set up your larger tent at the end of the driveway and a smaller one up by the fire pit. Both tent areas have beautiful views of Breckenridge Mountain. Please check out our other sites to see if there's a better fit for you. If you are not sure if your vehicle or this location is suitable, please reach out to us, before proceeding with your booking.

Amazing Views!
Loved our weekend get away at the Hideaway! The sun raises and sun sets were absolutely amazing! The view was just incredible with the mountains and the beautiful colors! Each campsite has a nice fire pit to sit around in the evening. There is barely any light pollution so the stars were astonishing! There is a porta potty that was very clean and well maintained. We even were able to drive into town and enjoy some breweries in Lake Isabella. Our dog is already begging to go back!

Wonderful Camping with a View
Such a great experience camping here! The hosts were extremely accommodating and helpful. The site is just a short drive away from town if you ever need anything. The view was beautiful and it was perfectly secluded. I would highly recommend giving this site a try. Can’t wait to go back!!

Amazing escape from LA
This was a wonderful find outside of the city. The host was extremely helpful and brought us around the property. We had great views from the site we camped at, and those views only get better at night! There was some deer in the area while we were there and that really added to the calming vibe and energy to the place. They had firepits available for us to use which was very helpful and there was sufficient space for our 2-person tent. The toilet was very clean as well. Will definitely be back soon!!

Windy stay but amazing stars
This place has some upsides and some down sides. The upsides are that the place is pretty well situated if you're coming from Vegas or LA and need a stop over or home base from which to see Sequoia National Forest. In addition, the place has little to no light pollution, so the stars are amazing. Finally, the place does allow camp fires and wood is available, a very nice touch. The downsides are that the site is on top of a mountain with little wind cover. Be prepared and bring wind resistant clothes and a good tent. The roads to get in and out are a little rough (narrow and windy). The physical space to put your tent is small - two person tents will have no problem, four person tents will fit but take up the whole space. (Note - this is newly available land so the owner is likely to increase the space available.) Finally, check the fire map before you go. There was a small fire about 2 miles from us that was being put out when we arrived. We weren't in any danger but it spoked us.

An amazing mountain retreat!!
The host was delightful. She took us for a tour around the property as it it quite large. They have BIG plans for this campground! My husband and I like to try out new campgrounds and The Hideaway doesn’t disappoint! Our stay was very private and peaceful. The views are unmatched and the sunsets were breathtaking! An awesome mountain retreat complete with wildlife. There was a nice breeze so it wasn’t to hot. They have built very nice fire pits at each site. Toilets were very clean. We will definitely stay here again and recommend others to try it out as well! Thank you for a wonderful weekend! We will be back!
