Located just north of the Paso Robles wine region, Pianetta Ranch and Winery is the perfect spot to pitch a tent and relax around a campfire (maybe with a glass of wine). The ranch is 95 acres, 65 of which is planted to vine, providing a beautiful setting along with wonderful views of Indian Valley north and south of the property. We have an open campsite that can accommodate large groups. If your group exceeds 50 people, please contact us directly for options. NO PETS ALLOWED. This is a perfect stopping point for cyclists and other traveling groups as we are located along the Peach Tree Trail. We are happy to host your group just as a campsite, but for larger groups we can also offer winemaker dinners, vineyard and winery tours, barrel tasting, cheese pairings, Champagne breakfast, and more! Extras are at additional cost and MUST be scheduled at least 48 hours prior to your stay. We will do our best to make ourselves available, but we cannot guarantee any appointments PLEASE NOTE: The camping facility is located on our private winery and vineyard. This is a production facility and not a public facility. Our public tasting room is located in downtown Paso Robles (829 13th Street). To schedule private tastings at the winery (on the campground), please contact us in advance. We require at least a 48 hour notice for tasting. We can also provide cheese pairings at an additional cost. Please be respectful as the owner lives on site. Children are OK at our site, but please keep in mind that they must be included in the total number of your party and must be under supervision at all times. We are a working vineyard and winery. We do our best to make sure your visit is as comfortable as possible, but sporadically we will have tractors and trucks working in and around the vineyard and winery especially around Harvest Time (September - November). We will notify you about any activity we forsee during your visit.
Rolling hills with one horse and one senior cow on the property plus amazing seasonal ponds. Tons of wildlife. Many campsite locations with views plus endless camping options in the 57+ acres of woods. The surrounding area boasts a rich history from being a prominent area during the gold rush. We also have a host dog- Andy, she belongs to a neighbor but visits all Campers. The Camper's say the stars are the difference, many just set in the open and watch the night sky. Lots to do and see in the area- plus hiking trails, wine tasting, swimming in the American River.
Camp under the stars in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains. (RV's/trailers - see below. ) This 50 acre family-owned property is located in the heart of Apple Hill. There are two streams that run through it, with a hill that separates them. It is a working Christmas Trees farm that was started in the 1960's and now has many trees that are too big to fit in anyone's home, but provide an unbelievable canopy for some of our camp sites. Half the property is covered in a pine forest (with some secluded camp sites) with the balance being Christmas trees, Manzanita brush, Madrone trees, and open areas (for larger group campers). There are trails throughout the property for visitors to enjoy. There is an Apple Farm across the street that makes the best donuts in Apple Hill! Less than a mile away is a farm brewery and there are wineries throughout the area. There is also a large lake nearby that is a favorite for local kayak and canoe enthusiasts (and some who enjoy fishing) since most non-locals don't know it exists. Campsites 1 - 10 are centrally located at the top of the hill, sites 11 - 15 are more remote (& quieter) but are also farther from the bathrooms & potable water supplies. (Site 15 is in a tight forest where slender pine trees rub against each other; if there's any wind, they make sounds akin to wooden ships rubbing up against the docks in a harbor. NOTE: Sites 12 - 15 have been reorganized and their numbers changed to be in a logical sequence. Therefore, past comments regarding these specific sites may no longer be accurate and could refer to a different site. Please ask me if you have any questions. ) If you are traveling in a group, we suggest getting two sites next to each other rather than trying to squeeze everyone into a single site - it's actually less expensive to rent two sites with 5 people each rather than putting 10 people into a single site. Site pairs that work well together are 1&2, 4&6, 3&5 and 9&10, (We also have areas specifically for larger groups. Please see our Hipcamp group site listing. ) For 2019, we are adding 5 new sites. Unfortunately, we should have added these during the off-season when we didn't have any bookings so we could renumber these to fit in logically with the existing sites, but we didn't! Therefore, sites 16-20 will be intermixed with the other sites but will be marked with a blue numbered post to distinguish them from the rest. Please let me know if you have any questions about these. (None of these are RV compatible. ) RV's & TRAILER's- Please note, there are currently only a few furnished campsites that can accommodate these - sites 3, 4, 8, 11 and site 12. Please let me know how large an RV/trailer you have so that we can make sure that we can get you to fit. Please note, there NO HOOKUPS. However, potable water is accessible when you arrive - please bring a long hose to make filling easier. (If you don't need/want the campsite amenities, please check out out RV Hilltop listing for a more economical stay. ) CAMPFIRE NOTE: Fire pits with a grill & mesh cover are provided at every site. All fires must be contained in the fire pit. Open campfires (on the ground) are prohibited. Please keep the fire pit covered when in use and always fully extinguish your fire when you leave the campsite. You may collect dead wood to burn from the property, but please bring a handsaw to cut up pieces so they will fit into the fire pit. Be sure to bring flashlights and lanterns, it does get dark at night!
Angeles Crest Creamery is a working goat dairy on 70 private acres in the Angeles National Forest. Our camp site is a natural clearing in unimproved wilderness and does not include a tent or any other equipment with the exception of a picnic table---please bring your own gear. There is a 30A plug, two 110V outlets, and a spigot for water. If the ground is wet from recent rain or snow, 4WD may be required to access the camp site. Hiking in is also an option. The site is about 5 minutes walk from the road up into the forest, and very private. During your stay you are welcome to help us with the goats during chores. We will even give you a milking lesson if you'd like to try it! If you don't want to miss milking, we suggest a 2 night stay, since we sometimes milk in the afternoon. Bring your own food or pre-order ranch goodies for delivery to the camp site. Offerings are seasonal--we will send you a list the week before your stay. Sorry, no campfires, no exceptions. Cooking with propane camp stoves only.
Pitch your tent in our private, spacious campground of meadows and forest. We are a 5 minute walk to Jug Handle Beach and access the Jug Handle Ecological Staircase trail that takes you to the pygmy forest. You can head straight back to your camp, or if you need a map there is a welcome kiosk near the entrance on the left side. JHCF is an environmental, low impact campground. Please pack in and pack out, and leave campground as you found it. A central cooking area (between sites #1 and #2) with running water, sink, 2 outhouses, and campfire rings with cooking grates are in each site. Water is potable from our well, which is also filteredSites 5, 6 and 7 are smaller sites for car parking as they are more forested - so if you have more than 3 cars, you can still drive up to unload, but you can park your extra cars in our event overflow area just on the left hand side as you drive up the driveway. Site #4 is the best small RV or camper van site as it is the only site with water and electric hook up. Quiet hours are 10pm - 7am. Please be mindful of other campers, especially if arriving late at night. If you are camping with a large group, please enjoy late night chats down at the beach. Private yoga instruction and massage available on site, please stop by the office for more information or to book.
We are a farm on the beach just North of Santa Barbara and Goleta, Ca. You will camp in a historic, glass greenhouse with incredible ocean views. Inside is a cob pizza oven that works awesome.

Private beach access from our property. We have a barnyard with a multitude of farm animals. Limited electricity in greenhouse (A couple of extension chords). 15 minutes to downtown Santa Barbara. Kids under FIVE are free. . . *****LOOK***** BE ADVISED, on many weekends (Mostly Saturdays), the property has events with upwards of 100 people.

If you are camping during the rain, be advised, it gets wet in the greenhouse. It's an antique after all!
Make sure to contact me before booking (12/1 -2/28(29) for a discounted winter rate!In the middle of the Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument; adjacent to Bryce Canyon National Park; within walking distance of Kodachrome Basin State Park; and an easy drive to Zion and Capital Reef National Parks, as well as Lake Powell National Recreational Area, this unique site is an opportunity not to miss. The pet/horse friendly property (approximately 9 acres/3 ha/64 sq. m) and is welcoming to all folks/types of families, and boasts five private designated single tent sites, one group tent site, two car camping sites. The equestrians will find a two-acre pasture, three paddocks, a round pen, as well as beautiful places to ride from the ranch. No arrivals after 9:30pm MST!***There are no specific site numbers; all sites are tent sites but larger RVs/trailers can be accommodated on a limited basis******There is only one location for an RV and one location for a trailer, the rest are sites designed for folks who drive or walk in and have a tent. This secluded location has a small town of about 75 (Cannonville) three miles/5 k distant where there is a small store with firewood and gas, and a Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument Visitor Center. And, bonus, this campground has a shower (cold camp shower), fire rings, potable water, a place to wash dishes or clean fish, and cell phone service is getting better. The ranch is an off the grid, passive/active solar voltaic, so no electricity. Between 12/1 and 2/28(29) contact me for a "winter discount code" that significantly reduces the cost due to the loss of the shower and sink. The views are spectacular from any site where the xeroscaped landscape uses indigenous material and plants to complement the quintessential Pinyon/Juniper ecosystem the campground sits in. On three sides you are surrounded by red cliffs in the Carmel Formation which can give shelter from wind and sun, but campers can also look out over the Paria River (you can hear the river from camp as well as its amphibians) which runs south in front of the property and eventually meets the Colorado River at Lee’s Ferry where most put-in to raft the Grand Canyon. Looking north, one sees the meaning of the term “Grand Staircase” by viewing The Entrada, Tropic Shale, Straight Cliffs, Wahweap, Kaiparowits, and Pink Limestone Formations capped by late Tertiary Volcanism; or, the “steps” of Promise Rock, Sand Point, Powell Point, and the Aquarius Plateau (highest forested mesa in North America at over eleven thousand feet. ). The biological diversity here is also astounding, the (*) might indicate alarming:Birds: 125 species and counting including the tiny Costa’s Humming Bird all the way up to the enormous California Condor. Plants: 2 species of Sagebrush, 4 species of trees, numerous grass species, and a plethora of beautiful wildflowers and cacti. *Reptiles: Many species of snakes and lizards. Unfortunately, this includes the occasional rattlesnake. It is advised that you have your pets vaccinated. Amphibians: Toads and SalamandersMammals: Predators-Lions, Coyotes, Bobcats, & Badgers. Ungulates-Elk, Deer & Pronghorn. Rodents-Lots of those!*Insects: There are very few mosquitoes. There are a few biting Deer Flies, and worse yet, those damn gnats. These “no-see-ums” are temperature dependent so are not a bother in the cool shade, early mornings, late evenings and at night. It is recommended that you bring some kick ass insect repellent and a “bee hat” if you are out and about in the sun during the day between May and July. Fossils: Bivalves, snails, petrified wood (many types) and various other corals, insects and plant fossils abound and are often incorporated into the ranch infrastructure. The nearby area is considered the hottest paleontological spot on the planet. Astronomy: The area is widely considered to be under the darkest skies in the lower 49. The Milky Way and Persieds are common sights without the unsightly annoyance of any neighbor’s lights. The climate is varied and interesting. All four seasons are here and occasionally all in one day. Winter snows melt quickly though temperatures can dip into the sub-zeros. The 5,900 ft. /1800 m. elevation keeps the summer temps reasonable and always gives a chilly summer evening to cool things off. If you want climatic extremes, you can, within an hour or so, be at Lake Powell and its 100+ F/38+ C heat or on the Aquarius Plateau at 65 degrees F/18 C in midday June. Recreation on many levels is all within proximity. From canyoneering (many close and amazing slot canyons, both technical and casual) , “free” climbing (both trad and sport) on an established nearby crag composed of a welded tuft capping the Aquarius Plateau (see Mountain Project for "The Jungle on the Aquarius Plateau") and many aid lines on Entrada/Navaho Formation towers within walking distance (see Mountain Project for "The Grand Staircase" ), water sports of Lake Powell and the Colorado River as well as fishing in the cool temps of Pine Lake 35 minutes distant. Then of course, there is the Monument, National Park and the State Park only a short drive away. Seclusion, security, water, and views all within minutes to spectacular destinations, makes this worth the stop.
Pitch your tent in the middle of our 450 acre farm, in our peach and apple orchard. You have access to a fire pit, applewood (sold in bundles at ourfarm market), and a picnic table. A beautiful, secluded site to bring friends to enjoy this beautiful location. As we are a working farm, you can see us driving through with our tractors or maintaining the orchard around your campsite on occasion. . You are welcome to ride your bikes, hike or jog where you will pass ponds and a working farm landscape. PLEASE don’t pick our fruit. If you would like to enjoy the fruits of our labor please come down to our farm store, open year round, on the premises where we sell cheeses, fresh picked fruit and veggies, meats, and our famous cider donuts along with other farm products. We also have a farm brewery in our old dairy barn for you to enjoy. Live music Saturdays and Sundays. Minnewaska State Park and Mohonk Reserve are only 10 minutes away. The rail trail is three minutes away. This trail gives you walking and biking access in to New Paltz, where there is tons of restaurants and lots of shopping. Please be aware that during the months of September and October there may be a Pick-Your-Own customer or two walking around picking apples around the campsite area between the hours of 10:00-6:00. You are also welcome to come down to the farm market and purchase bags to pick your own apples in season.
This is easy car access to a raw outdoor camping experience. You will be camping next to the crystal clear Washougal River and have access to Naked Falls and Reeder Falls. The camping area is on the East side of the river. There are 7 excellent camping sites. Come prepared as the nearest potable water source is at least a mile away and you won't see any lights or electrical outlets on the property. There is a portable toilet now between sites 4 and 5 on the east side of the road. Also, please remember that I don't live there and there is limited service on the property. If you have questions, please contact me in advance as I may be unreachable when you arrive at the property. If you are not familiar with the area, or even if you haven't camped there before, I recommend contacting me for directions or information about the area before you go up. Also, if you have an RV, you will want to contact me to discuss which site you really want to book depending on the size of your RV, awnings, slide outs, etc. Each booked site is allowed 2 cars or 1 RV. If you have more than 2 cars or 1 RV, there is a fee of 10. 00 per additional vehicle. The Campsites go in the order they appear as you drive through the campground. There are signs with the site numbers next to each site. The sites each have their own parking spaces. Please see the brief descriptions below so you have a good idea of what kind of experience you can expect at each site. Site 1: Saltness CreekThis is the only site with direct trail access to the river on the camping side. It's also right on a creek and encompasses a corner of the confluence of the creek and the Washougal River. It's a nice open space right off the gravel road which allows you to park right by where you will set up tents and have your campfire. It also means other campers will drive right by your site and they will need to pass by it to take the trail to the river. This site is very convenient but not very private. Site 2: Naked FallsThere is a short narrow trail that leads to the campsite on the Naked Falls cliff. It's awesome! This is the original campsite at Naked Falls and has likely been there for 100 years or more. It overlooks the waterfall and island downstream. It's really the coolest campsite but it's not for everybody. The area for pitching tents is smaller than at the other sites. Only 2 medium sized tents will fit comfortably. You may be able to cram 3 tents in but should be aware that it's only really meant for 2. Groups larger than 6 may want to consider another site. Also, it is right on the cliff where people like to jump so, while you have the best view of all the fun stuff happening at the falls, you also have cliff divers coming up to say hi during the day. Site 3: Desk JobThis site is just past the falls. It has a wide short trail to the camping area and a beautiful view of the river that passes right by the site about 30 ft below it. It is nice, quiet and secluded. Site 4: Middle ManagementVery similar to site 3 and 5. The trail down is wide and short. There is a small opening with a nice view of the river and it's quiet. A great place to listen to the flow of the river and the beat of your heart. Site 5: Conference RoomThe Conference Room is tucked into the woods a little more than the other sites. It's right over the river just like all the rest of the sites but the trees like living on that cliff. . . like a whole bunch. You can walk to the edge and see the river but it's not the most open view of the river. I love this site. It has two old growth stumps from the first harvest ever at Naked Falls. They tell stories of the Yacolt burn and a lot of hard winters. A short wide trail get's you from your car to to the camping area in about 25 steps. Site 6: Printer JamThis site is quite large and has the most extensive view of the river. Great for bigger groups or bigger tents. This is a chill spot where you can roast marshmallows while watching the flow of the Washougal River 35 ft below. Site 7: Budget MeetingThe last site on the road has the longest walk. . . about 50 yards. It is also a large space and is the most secluded. It's the longest distance from river access but also the most private. The walk down passes an old growth tree that must have fallen decades ago. It has a huge base and the root structure is about 12 ft tall. There are a variety of trees that hug this campsite. If you don't mind the walk, you are sure to dig the vibe at our version of a Budget Meeting.

No wood fires but propane fire pits and grills are totally welcome. We have a seasonal apple stand that has a plethora of goodies to sample or purchase which is a fun little bonus when you stay with us anywhere from September 1st through the end of November. We also hold weddings in our gorgeous gardens during Spring, Summer and Fall. If we don't have a private event going on you may feel free to grab a blanket, picnic basket or a book and spend a few hours lying on the grass in our gardens. Our canyon has a microclimate of its own, so almost every day, except a handful of days in the winter, the weather is absolutely perfect. There is a quaint winery 30 seconds down the road from us with a great selection of wines and a flock of peacocks roaming around. We're about a 5 minute drive to the nearest beach (which happens to be our favorite in the area) with plenty of options for food and recreational activities. You are also a quick 10 minute drive to the best town in the nation, (Oprah said it not us) San Luis Obispo! We hope to see soon!
Itty Bitty Lakes is an old fashioned campground on Highway 50 and the Arkansas River in Bighorn Sheep Canyon. The canyon opens out to be a small valley bordered by the Sangre de Cristo Mountains peaking at over 13,000 feet to the immediate south, the wild Arkansas River, then cliffs and smaller mountains to the north. Nestled in the Valley is the village of Coaldale, established in 1878. The Coaldale Post Office is at the east end of Itty Bitty Lakes. Itty Bitty Lakes was a state fish hatchery in the 1930s. The formal campground with full hook-ups was added some 70 years ago. Down on the river, some of the old raceways are now wetland habitats filled with wildflowers and small birds all summer. Besides these wetlands are several more primitive camping sites along the river. Huge 70-year-old Mountain Elms and Peach Leaf Willows shade the entire property. Rocky Mountain Junipers are scattered throughout. In the center of the property is the Juniper Art Gallery. This is also the campground office. The owners, Robert and Kay Parker, are artists. The building also houses painting, sculpture and weaving studios, as well as the Parker home. On the west side of the property are two old ponds with massive Peach Leaf Willows hanging over the banks. This property is great for group camping and for small intimate campsites close to and above the river. Near the center and at the entrance to the formal campground is the shower house bathrooms . These facilities are open for all our guests. They are old but clean, and the water is pure and hot. There is a Men’s and a Women’s side. Each has 2 toilets, a sink and 2 showers. Several rafting guides spend the summer with us. They are with Arkansas River Tours, one of the oldest and most respected rafting companies in Colorado. You will receive 10% off anything in our beautiful art gallery. Open fires are always subject to current county and state fire restrictions. We don't want our forests and homes going up in flames. Oh, I forgot to tell you that you will be sharing the property with one donkey (she loves carrots and apples). Wild ducks and geese are also often on our ponds. Itty Bitty Lakes is a songbird sanctuary, so we have many nesting birds in our trees. Please note our cancellation policy.
Camp where the lake meets the river with sweeping views of the Olympic mountains.
A working sheep ranch next to the Manchester State Beach with huge open views of the ocean. Right next to nature trails, sand dune walks, and the beach itself, this site is super private while being close to everything. Please note that this is the coast during the summer so it may be a bit busier than usual. Enjoy over 3 acres to camp on while you watch the hawks fly overhead in the day and listen to the owls at night. Directions- off of Highway 1 make the turn onto Kinney Road and Manchester Beach. Pass the KOA and make the next left hand turn through the double gates and into the farm. Find any open site and set up camp! These are dispersed sites that are first come first serve. Please note that fire danger is very real in California. Depending on the time of year, weather, and local regulations, we may have to ask campers to not have fires.

There are two tent campsites on the property. They are both down a short trail from the upper gravel parking area. Your gear will need to be carried down and back out. The half bath is near the parking area in what we call the "bunkhouse. " This is a sort of rec room for all our guests. Inside is a couch, board games, TV, and coffee pot for you to use during your stay. There is also potable and filtered drinking water. We do close the bunkhouse at night from 10pm-8am. There is a small porta-potty down the hill to use at night. Each tent campsite has seating, a hammock, stone fire ring, and a small supply of wood for burning. Bonus: Free fresh farm eggs for all our happy campers. :-)
Just off scenic Highway 1, WagMore is a 63 acre property, 10 minutes from the quaint harbor town of Morro Bay and 15 minutes from Montana de Oro. WagMore offers several primitive sites scattered throughout oak covered hills and grassland giving access to hiking, wildlife and scenery. The terrain and road are best suited for tents, and smaller vans and campers, but Site #1 can accommodate larger vans/campers and small RV's/trailers. There are several sites right off the road; or campers can park and hike in and pitch a tent on a grassy field or clearing. The road to the sites is a bit rough, but a two-wheel drive vehicle can make it--I drive my minivan up it all the time, and we've had a multitude of Prius' make the trip! We do NOT recommend large RVs or 5th-wheels of any size because of the overhead clearance and narrow road. In Morro Bay just up the highway, visitors can enjoy beaches, fishing, boating, whale watching, surfing and SUP. Nearby Montana de Oro offers fantastic mountain biking and hiking. Also, the southern part of Big Sur is day tripping distance up Highway 1 from the camp where visitors will find spectacular scenery and hiking.
