Picture a very large safari style tent on a even larger deck with it's own private seating area and fire ring, and when you open the tent flaps, you have a luxury hotel room. Camping equals work, while glamping equals play. The simplicity of getting ready to leave for a short or extended glamping trip will make your leisure time pleasant and enjoyable from the start, before you even leave home. Packing an overnight bag, or a suitcase just takes a little while, eliminating the need for endless trips to the sporting goods store, grocery store, or any of the other countless errands required when planning a camping trip. Just pack your bags and go!
More about Glamping…
Located in the rural country of San Diego, California, Valley Center has a small farming community feel with chaparral, rock formations and wildlife. Friendly people and laid back atmosphere induces relaxation from the moment you enter the valley. While our facility is 2 miles removed from “downtown”, you will have plenty to do day and night if you choose to venture out. We have 4 major casinos within a 15 mile radius. We have golf courses nearby, hiking trails, biking routes, and world class tourist attractions if you choose to visit San Diego proper. Onsite we have the Mining Camp Restaurant with an old world Western feel, and there are over 20 offsite restaurants within a 20 minute drive. Palomar Mountain with the world famous observatory is only a half hour away and for those who love the desert Borrrego Springs can be experienced in all it's glory and splendor in a little over an hour with so many views, vista points and picnic areas along the way.
The old Broken Rock Ranch, located in Valley Center, CA is just the place for that good-old fashioned, get-back-to-nature camping; providing a way to reconnect with self, nature and community. Nestled in the foothills of the Palomar Mountains, historic Valley Center is a county style town with charm of yesteryear, settled over 150 years ago after President Lincoln signed the Homestead Act on May 20, 1862. Broken Rock Ranch offers a remote camping experience that is only about 40 miles from downtown San Diego, is easily accessible from the major thoroughfare, and is 5 minutes from the amenities of town.
More about the Ranch…
At an elevation of 1,800 feet we have 34 acres of rolling grounds for nature walks, meditating, relaxing, and fantastic clear night skies for star gazing. Ranch amenities include a main lodge-style building of over 2200 square feet, housing a magnificent fire place. Additional amenities include: a full service commercial restaurant, several meeting rooms, an activities center, restrooms / hot showers, 5 separate wedding venues with catering tent areas, an outdoor amphitheater with bonfire pit, barbecues, an on-site chapel, ping pong, horseshoes, and many more. The main body of the camp has a recreation and gathering area a distance from the community center with Glamping sites that give the user a sense of privacy because of ample separation, while also enducing a sense of community for tent camping areas and picnic grounds.
There are different rates based upon the type of camping, event, kitchen, or building/land usage that you wish to book. We offer tent rates, and special event or use rates. Call to talk specifically about your needs.
Reservations ensure your private camping experience. We will not book multiple parties for the same time periods. Once you book our site, it is for your group's use only!
