Camp

Splitrock Farm & Retreat has different campsites to please any outdoor enthusiasts. Explore all our campsites below to find your perfect camping experience with us.


The Oak Grove

A 7-acre area all together with a dozen giant oak trees that create a 1.1-acre shade canopy. It is the perfect site for family or friends to gather around the picnic tables, BBQ, or snooze and listen to the sounds of the rustling oaks. On a clear day, you can see the blue horizon of the Pacific Ocean, and its constant breeze further cools the air under the oak canopy. 

The Oak Grove can accommodate large groups (book up to 16 on Hipcamp, contact us for larger groups up to 500). The Oak Grove has a shipping container with two flushing toilets and sinks, two outdoor showers with solar heating, and a camp shop with some of those popular items that campers need or forget. The spacious setting allows for families with children to ride bikes and play freely, with visits from our free range farm animals for the ultimate petting zoo experience!

You may set up your own additional tents, and we also offer add-on items to make your stay with us a full glamping experience by renting additional canvas bell tents, cots, and bedding. We will do the set-up and clean-up, just pull-up and start enjoying nature sooner. 

Hilltop Hideout

Hidden among giant boulders with views from Mt Palomar across North County to the Pacific Ocean’s endless horizon. Peek out from the 20ft bell tent at the ocean horizon over the Pendleton Reserve. 

Hidden among giant boulders with views from Mt Palomar across North County to the Pacific Ocean’s endless horizon. Sleep in a cozy cavern with a canvas cover that stays cool and dry all day and night. Peek out at the surrounding trails of Splitrock Farm, spy on Camp Pendleton’s air field, and stare at the stars next to a fire.

The 312sqft / 20ft bell tent overlooks the ocean and is perfect for sunsets from the double bed or sofa (pull-out into 2nd double bed). There are two areas to relax, one in front of the tent and the other a deck nestled between the boulders under the ancient oak. The bell tent sleeps 4 in beds, but there is room on the floor for cots, mattresses, or sleeping bags – or pitch more tents on the large pad below or on the small pad on top of the hill. 

We also offer add-on items to make your stay with us a full glamping experience by renting additional canvas bell tents, cots, and bedding.We will do the set-up and clean-up, just pull-up and start enjoying nature sooner. 

Kids, especially grown-up kids like me, will love exploring all the giant rocks with little caverns. It feels like Joshua Tree, but private with ocean views. 

Splitrock Valley – Jurassic Jungle

The Jurassic Jungle campsite sits at the very bottom of Splitrock Valley’s three campsites, tucked away against a natural spring and creek that flows about half of the year under a canopy of live oaks with enough palms and boulders mixed throughout that it seems you are in Jurassic Park. The temp under the canopy stays 15-20 degrees cooler.

Splitrock Valley’s main parking area can host about 10 cars if parked responsibly, and caters to the three campsites in Splitrock Valley: Salamander Spring, Jurassic Jungle, and Stargazer.
