Twisted Branch Ranch is a wonderful spot to set up camp if simplicity and gorgeous, expansive views are key considerations.
Our friendly host, Jac, welcomed us to property upon our arrival and ensured we had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Thank you, Jac!
During our stay at Twisted Branch Ranch, my husband and I pitched our tent at the summit site accessed by a private road. The campsite was mostly primitive, but not without some welcomed luxuries. A large picnic table, and two comfortable chairs grace this site. Additionally, a clean toilet facility was on-site as was access to potable water. However, the most impressive aspect of this Hipcamp was the fantastic, panoramic mountain views. High above the rest of the
surrounding terrain, you are afforded a truly marvelous perspective.
Walking around the property with Jac was, easily, the highlight of our trip to Twisted Branch Ranch. Learning about optimal, regenerative soil practices was a pure joy. If you have any interest in organic farming/gardening, and are serious about improving the nutritional value of your family’s cultivated food, you must speak with Jac during your visit. He is a wealth of information on the topic!
If you’re looking to have a relaxing, outdoor experience, you will certainly enjoy the lovely offering of this Hipcamp. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our time at Twisted Branch Ranch, and would be happy to visit again.

Will most definitely visit again
The Twisted Branch is a wonderful place to stay for your trip to Paso Robles. We travel in a self-contained unit so we don't really need a lot and can be comfortable almost anywhere. However, it is really nice when the space is as comfortable outside as inside. First, the Twisted Branch has a bathroom - yes it's an outhouse, but unbelievably clean with a light inside to help with those dark moments. Second, not only is there a picnic bench but chairs as well, so if you are on a motorcycle or car/tent camping and you lack the room, the Twisted Branch accommodates. Third, the view is the best I've seen in Paso Robles. The sunsets in the evening are only matched by the view of the valley as the sun rises. There is no traffic noise, no city noise, simply beautiful. Four, the animals - deer roam freely, there are an array of birds, and Jac mentioned foxes too. The domestic animals, specifically the cows, have free range too, but we didn't have any visit, we just observed the cow patties they left behind. I'm only including this in full disclosure - I had no issue with the cows or their patties. :-) Five, the ground was very flat, so if you bring a tent, you will not be disappointed - you could easily fit a whole baseball team in tents, although I don't know if that's allowed. Six, last but not least, the hosts were fabulous - knowledgeable of the area, friendly. In summary, I have no complaints, and I hope when we visit Paso again, the Twisted Branch is available.

Quiet nights and beautiful views
Our two nights at the Twisted Branch were lovely! The hosts made us feel so welcome (as did the deer, the horse, and a variety of birds). The site and bathroom were clean and ready when we arrived. Even though the campsite isn’t far from the house, it feels secluded, and the views are incredible! Thanks for a great stay!

Jac was very friendly and greeted me when I arrived. His property is extremely quiet and private. The camping spot has a port-o-potty and picnic table, a couple of chairs and its own gate. The site also is on top of a hill and has views in every direction. Very close to the town of Paso Robles and 101. I would definitely like to come back again.

The View and Quite
I stayed one night in a car on the way back to the coast, and I loved it. It was indeed peaceful and quite, I ended up sitting and looking at the rolling hills for a few hours in the morning, didn't want to leave.

Lovely private campsite
We loved camping on Jax’s property! We brought our little 16’ campervan up to Paso Robles for a few days to just relax. It was just exactly what we were looking for.
The porta potty was incredibly clean. With it just being one campsite (which is what drew us up there) it was great having peace and quiet. The campsite is on hill or maybe you would consider it a mini bluff and has incredible views of the Paso Robles area. At night it was nice and dark for star gazing. We even had some deer walking around our van one night.
Jac was also super friendly. We can’t wait to visit again.

Jac was a great host, met us at the gate, gave us instructions, and we did not see him until we left, and he gave us a parting gift. Site was large and flat with several trees to sit under, water available and port-o-potty.

Wow, simply incredible. Responsive, clean, as described, and easy. The grounds were absolutely beautiful and we will 100% be back. Sunset was amazing. Also, the porta potty was cleaner than any camp ground toilet. The space was huge and so happy to only have one site. It was peaceful. This spot is a gem. Well done Jac and thank you for hosting - please keep your site as is!
