Intro: I love the feeling of breathing in crisp cold air on an early morning, still in my sleeping bag with the beautiful views of nature right outside the mesh of my tent, the sounds of animals just waking from their slumber. Time to start a new day...
Come here if you want to have a spiritual retreat and recharge yourself under some amazing oak trees. The atmosphere here was super relaxed, perfect for a weekend getaway from the city. There is a nice running river that is perfect for taking a dip in if you are up for it, you can even dry off and sunbathe on the sand beaches that run along side it! There was also a group fire pit that looked great for roasting some smores, unfortunately we didn't get a chance use it since the wind was blowing a little too hard. The warm shower was a nice touch to rinse off with before heading to the kitchen to grill up some burgers. Definitely try to get the campsite under the oak tree if you can, it's such a unique experience to sleep cocooned under the branches like we did.
Overall, John has created a magical place and I hope we get a chance to come back here some day!
Had an amazing time staying here! Sleeping in a tipi at the Wishing Well Mini Ranch was one to the most amazing, unique, and peaceful experiences I have ever had. Kim was a super awesome host that made sure to give us a tour of his amazing mini ranch and introduce us to all the animals when we arrived.
The tipi itself was decorated beautifully by Kim's wife Kiva and definitely had a cozy relaxing atmosphere. We had a fully stocked kitchen in the tipi with a mini-fridge, coffee maker, hot water maker, and fresh running water from a well that was drilled right on the property! The outdoor shower was perfect for a warm morning shower with no shortage of hot water.
The animals at the ranch are definitely some of the friendliest I have ever seen. The goats and pigs all come up to you for pets and if you are lucky, Sherbet the miniature pig will roll over to ask for a tummy rub.
We had a great time here and will definitely try to come back to stay in the tipi again!
This site was a perfect place for us to launch our San Diego trip from! The site was pretty private with the privacy partitions and there was plenty of room to set up our two person tent as well as a couple other tents if we had more people. The bathroom and pool facilities were kept super clean and the staff was great to talk with. The only complaint I have is the train that passed by at night. It woke us up a couple of times in the night, but it passed by pretty fast and we feel back to sleep pretty quickly. Would come back again in the future!
