This secluded canyon in the mountain wilderness was once home to the Kawiiasu Indians. Oaks trees over 300 years old once served as a staple food source for them, and acorn grinding stones are found throughout the area. A cave is situated at the top of a nearby cliff where free range goats live at night, and venture down to the Eco Farm during the day. Wild Thingz Eco Farm was founded in 2017 from a vision of former Hollywood stuntwoman/actor, artist and massage therapist Sarah H. Brown. The motto is 'Wild Thingz Live Free' and it is a journey into building a life off grid, in harmony with nature and wildlife, while producing an abundance of food sources. Drawing from Native American knowledge and Permaculture/Organic/Regenerative practices, this is the beginning stages of building that dream on the 20 acres of land. The bottom portion of the property is the current camping area where large trees create shade and beauty. A dirt road passes by near the camping area, but usually only has 1 car a day travel through. Occasional free range cows will meander through the camping area, and are generally afraid of people. Up above is the communal area which is under construction. It has a 40 foot shipping container covered in art, a bicycle powered wash machine, a safe area for chimenaya fires, and magnificent views in the day or night. Classes and tours are available on a number of topics related to living and growing off grid, foraging wild foods, natural building with earth, making yucca baskets, composting and more.  Book a massage in the shade of the oak tree, do a yoga/stretching session in the woods, enjoy meandering through back country roads, or relax in the hammock. Be left alone or join Sarah for fires, classes, conversation or music. Nature is here to nurture and inspire you. Come home the the wild. Learn more about this land: A secluded canyon in the wilderness with oak and pine trees below, juniper and yucca on the drier mountains above. The campsite is close to a dirt road with occasional but little cars, nestled below a community center in the making on the hill. Large trees give a private feel. Views of mountains surround the campsite, occasional free range cows drift through, and free range goats that live in a cave far above the camp come visit during the day. A dry creek bed with colorful rocks run past the campsite, an organic garden is close by but not in view of campsite. It has a mostly private feel, but can be viewed from the road above through the trees if you make an effort to see. The sounds of quail and other birds are common. Bunnies are often seen, and the echos of coyotes through the canyon are enchanting at night. It is mostly quiet aside from the barking of dogs in the far distance (from houses that are not in view) on occasion, and occasional cars. Across from the land is a fenced property that is not is use and only viewable from the communal area above. There are young cactus planted near the camping area so be sure to keep children from touching them. There is a water spigot at the campsite. The host wishes to connect with campers eager to learn about off grid living, sustainable growing, wild food foraging, natural building and more if they are interested, but it is not required for camping stays. Also, musicians/singers/rappers who would like to jam/freestyle or listen to hosts original music (bluesy electric guitar/rap/rock) are welcome! Campers are free to have their privacy, and if they would like to socialize with the host that is also welcome. Only one site is booked at a time unless an event is being held. Lake Isabella and Remington Hot Springs are an hour away for day trips. An archery shooting area is available in the campsite, and archery rentals are offered. A music studio with drum set is available for hourly rentals. Many classes are also offered to campers. Please be aware that once campers exit the 58 freeway and drive through the long canyon towards the camp, there is no cell service for the rest of the trip, and no cell service at the camp. There is Wifi for internet calls at the camp if need be. The closest grocery store and gas station are an hour away so please plan accordingly. Be sure to watch for cows in the road on the winding drive through the canyon after exiting the 58.

A Real Hidden Treasure
Sarah is a wonderful host, and is an excellent conversationalist if you are so inclined. The camp site is one of the best I've ever visited. I love a site that is remote, and her land is as remote as it gets. Absolutely no road noise city lights to be found. Plus the wildlife is so fascinating to observe! The goats look very serious, but they're gentle guys. The eco farm is paradise for me, maybe not for someone who needs electricity and cell reception. I'm already looking forward to another trip out there, even though it's far from where I live.

Peaceful learning experience
I loved solo tent camping on Sarah’s land! The peace and quiet is top-notch. Sarah is welcoming, inspiring, and totally awesome! We did the foraging class in the morning, which I highly recommend. I tried yucca for the first time, and am now craving more. In the afternoon we did the off-grid tour, which filled me with creative possibilities. I practiced archery, played drums, and chilled in the hammock. The night sky was glorious, and I was lucky to witness a good 10 hours of rain on the second night. Can’t say enough great things and I haven’t even mentioned the goats yet!

Thank you Sarah!
My friends and I had a great time! Sarah is a wonderful host and the site is cute and secluded. We saw some animals, cooked with her amazing handmade clay ovens/stove, and visited nearby hot springs. Its also really quiet at night with a great view of the stars. It’s definitely a unique camping experience and we would love to come back in the future!

A good place, very nature friendly. Good and kind host. It is isolated and that gives a special experience. Make sure to go a bit early and the path to the place winds a bit and seemed a bit unsafe when I drove late in the night.

Great class
We went to Sarah for her cob class we left feeling very confident on how to mix cob to make our own pizza oven or kiln or even a house. Of course will need to study more to make a house but we enjoyed that one day class very much and hope to go back someday

A little bit of paradise.
We had the most wonderful time at Wild Thingz Eco Farm, so wonderful that we have already booked our return stay. The land is beautiful and there are areas on the campground where you may lounge on a couch or in a hammock! There is a water spigot near the composting toilet, which is way better than any campground toilet I’ve seen. We loved having access to the cob rocket stove for cooking, as well as the cob oven, where we roasted marshmallows at night and made s’mores under a sky full of stars. Sarah is such a warm and welcoming host. She really loves the place, and it’s so evident. If you could bottle tranquility, it would smell like the breeze that wafts through the juniper trees and mountains at Wild Thingz Eco Farm.

Unique and magical
This place is magical! The owner, Sarah, is great. She was so welcoming and was fun to hang out with while we cooked in her amazing outdoor cob oven. The property is just beautiful in its natural state; Sarah clearly puts her entire heart and soul into her land. She is indeed an inspiring person. She knows a ton about off grid living and might just jam out with you if you’re lucky. You may also get the chance to meet her (very friendly) mountain goats! If you’re looking for day trips during your visit, the property is about an hour from Remington hot springs, Lake Isabela, and white water rafting in Kernville. It’s about a 3-4 hour drive to the Sequoia National Park. This was an overall fantastic stay and we will definitely be back!

Great vibes
Sarah and her site were amazing! She has created a special Area for her guest campers on the lower portion of the site including a nice washing station some furniture and the nicest outdoor toilet room I’ve ever experienced. The upper part of the site is where she lives and it was really fun to get a tour of how she is living off the land and off the grid. My son enjoyed jamming with her in the music studio and we loved hanging out with the goats who were super friendly and cool. I would love to come back and do one of her classes to learn more.

I stayed for two nights at Wild Thingz Eco Farm and I am so glad to have added it to my itinerary! Sarah is such a kind, welcoming host and I really enjoyed our chats under the stunning starry sky. This is a great place to relax, meditate, make art, read and watch for desert wildlife, while taking a needed break from the hectic outside world. It is also an inspiring look at simple, off-the-grid living in harmony with the land. I picked my own camp site in the designated area and enjoyed the privacy and peace. Oh and bring pizza ingredients- this was a nice tip I saw from other reviewers. Thank you Sarah!

This is what camping feels like
Wild Thingz Eco Farm is a peaceful and yet exciting place to camp. Me and three others spent our days on beautiful hikes, relaxing with the goats and listening to nature. I would recommend this spot to anyone who really wants to escape the energy of the city to find their natural rhythm and inner-calm. Five star location and the drive into the campsite is just as beautiful. Sarah is an unbelievably kind host and has found a way to live off the fat of the land. If you play music, take a guitar and she'll even jam with you.

Great for family!
Sarah's farm is well loved and has great energy. Everything is hand built from the rock towers lining the street to the clay oven overlooking the canyon. The camp site is well maintained and inspired with a great eating area Sarah built using wood and rocks. Another example is the compost toilet which has a serene walkway. It was especially helpful having access to Sarah's well water so we didn't have to use up all the water we packed. Overall my family had a wonderful time and our two young girls (a 5 year old and a 17 month old) especially enjoyed seeing the goats come and go. We will definitely come back again!

Fascinating Place!
Favorite Hipcamp stop ever! Highly recommend stopping if you’re in the area OR going out of your way just for the wild foraging class & being able to learn from Sarah’s Homestead experience- especially in creating earth ovens, earthen floors, meat smokers, etc. Her work is fascinating. I learned SO much from her class & through conversation with her. If you’re lucky enough to hear her amazing songs that she writes or are a musician- you’d have a great time with her, too. I’m very impressed with her setup- she put so much care into everything she made; it’s well taken care of & artistic. I love the compost toilet/bathroom, it’s very clean & efficient! She also has a shower setup, multiple places to fetch water & do dishes, several places to sit & find peace, and the site feels very tranquil and safe. It’s a must see!

Sublime Stay with Sarah
Our stay at Wild Thingz was a beyond amazing experience. We learned so much from Sarah and loved seeing everything she’s created there. Between the amazing wildlife, the sublime scenery, and our super cool and knowledgeable host...our expectations were surpassed. We did the tour, which I would highly recommend, because there is so much to see that Sarah has created with just her own two hands and the earth. Learning about all of her creations just enhanced our experience at Eco Farmz even more.
