It was November 2018 we found this 80 acre property, unlike the hundreds we looked at, this one had a taste of the Wild West, settlers, Signs of ocean presence, shells, fossils. It was a chilly December week 2018 we came to see what it would be like to live here in the winter. We stayed a week in a aluminum horse trailer waking up to amazing sunrises, making awful coffee over a fire. Making an evening campfire to cook, bbq and making cocktails sitting on logs. I gathered all the geographical data I could to build what is now 120,000 sq ft horse rescue facility completely off grid accept with minimal generator help to run well pumps. Why Hipcamp? We loved the breathtaking scenery that almost doesn't look real with frosted tip of mountains, the smell of with sage in the cool breeze. We carved out our camp sites in the very same spot we stayed in the horse trailer to share that experience with others! Our campsites are now lightly graveled, mostly level, with rock firepits made from rocks gathered on the property and each spot has tree rounds to sit on from our Ca. Ranch.

Great Spot. Real desert, real quiet. Just a heads up, If tent camping it can get pretty cold out there ;).

We had a great time exploring the surrounding areas in our 4 x 4 jeep. Beautiful sunsets, beautiful landscape, and beautiful hosts. We ran short on eggs and forgot to pack our coffee and the owners of the property were gracious enough to bring us farm fresh eggs, and coffee for our stay. Highly recommend this place great place to get lost and chill
