Hello,

First time hip camper here. Really upset with our first experience.

We booked this place after looking for a family friendly calm environment. After monitoring this page up to 24 hours before our arrival (immune compromised family member and we wanted to make sure there wasn’t a bunch of people.) our two camp selections and another by someone was what booked.

When we arrived to the “camp ground site” we called for assistance, after several calls someone finally answered and the lady just said to enter on the right. And someone would come and greet us. Waited a 30 minutes - no one came and we called again and she said just go set up in any space.

We arrived at noon. Bugs were bad but there was no one around and we thought - cool. By 4:00 PM on Friday someone started playing music on their stage and by 7:00 there was 100+ people at the camp ground. Which was not ideal since again we are in a middle of pandemic and not enough spaces. There was no mention that this was a event or people would be here.

Our family stayed at our site after going to their “swim area” that was crowded with 20+ people. Their swim was very small. Making it impossible for strangers to maintain 6ft and social distance.

The music continued to be blaring. I called the mainline 9:30 PM inquiring about quiet hours since we had kiddos and they said “should their be quiet hours?” I asked if they could turn it down and they said “no problem to ask them to turn it down a bit.”

5 minutes later, the music was knocked up louder and I can’t even make this up - my daughter’s lullaby was a song screaming Areola’s. The music continued this loud until 4AM with some drugged out guy on his iPhone & a shitty EDM playlist blaring music through the park via their speakers. I saw someone at a bathroom who said this was a planned event that they hold a few times a summer but due to COVID - they have not advertised.

At 10 & 11PM that night a guy in golf cart drove around next to our tents spraying pesticides and when asked what it was replied “cancer”. So clearly not stuff our young kiddo needed to be sleeping in.

My family and I promptly packed up our tent area and left by 7 AM the next day Saturday Which upon arrival not a soul to be found - when I left there was so many people and tents everywhere.

This place is just a straight up mess, there was rusted metal all over and broken lights. Bathrooms were completely dirty and only a couple “social distance” signs. The reviews were nice but this place must have gone down hill from then.

We would like a full refund.

The people that were previously rating within this last month must be completely blind or were on the same level as the owners.

This place was not taken care of. There was broken glass and rusted pieces of metal all over the 'campsite' floors.

No one greeted us upon arrival after calling several times for assistance. Not once did a "owner" say hello or acknowledge us. When we requested to speak with Darwin they said he was working. So, I don't believe Darwin is the owner of this land or facility.

There is no "farm" it is just a run down want to be hippie park with random trailers, abandon cars and overgrown grounds surrounding it. The most farm I saw was 4 chickens and broken down garden beds near the "home".

When we booked and we looked and saw no one was there except for one reservation. It turns out that was not true. There was over 100+ people on the property.

They blared music till 4AM and had a large public event - which we were told by a guest when we were at the bathroom that this was planned but due to COVID was not publicly advertised.

When asked for the music to be turned down from the stage at 9:30 at night, they turned it up louder with a song screaming AREOLAS and proceeded to listen to shitty EDM music from some drugged out guys playlist. I don't know how "hippie" and "community" they pretend to have when they cannot even respect others around them.

They did not inform campers of this event after reserving or we would have not chosen to stay at this place. We packed up and left immediately the next day at 7AM on Saturday.

They are not doing COVID safety measure in place. The bathrooms were extremely gross and they spray pesticides around you and your tent beginning at 10PM and 12PM.

We have requested a refund for both of our reservations.

Unpleasant experience because we were not informed of a festival going on. No mention of it whatsoever. We thought we were going to have a quiet weekend camping in nature, and instead had to listen to blasting music the whole weekend (til 3-4 a.m). It was a big disappointment and uncomfortable situation. Especially with Covid-19 going on, there should have been transparency about the event that was planned for the weekend. We were told it would be us and one other group.

We didn't have a great experience at Pure Bliss Ranch and didn't end up staying the night. Upon arrival, we couldn't find the host and we couldn't find the numbered campsite we had booked. We eventually found an open space. The campsite was fairly crowded and at around 11pm people were playing loud music and began setting off large fireworks very close to the campsite/over the house. We did not feel safe or able to sleep so we left.

Nice place to stay. Feels like a proper ranch with some retro, creative installations that are a reminiscent of The Burning Man. The bathrooms however weren't clean at all, at least the men's. The water faucet by the handwash drizzled water and the drinking water was muddy. The instructions on the showers weren't clear either. Those are a few bummers but other than that the site was nice. Quite a few spots to pitch a tent. We reached late and they were very accommodating. Helped us pitch in a convenient location. They have 5 dogs, all of them friendly and became great friends with our dogs and tired her out for the next stretch of the journey!

Awesome fun hippy camp. Darwin was so accommodating in getting me there since the link on hipcamp lead me elsewhere. You need to Google Pure Bliss Ranch directions. Everyone was so nice and invited us to go LARPing. Swim beach was a short path from the site and hosts offered butter and salt since I forgot them. Maybe not the best for families who need quiet after 10 but we had the best time.
