Hello everyone! This is a friendly reminder that any of these fun places we may visit, we are a guest at. Please treat both businesses and trails with the utmost respect. We here at Hidden California follow the 'Leave no Trace' mantra, meaning whatever you bring with you comes back with you. If you see trash on a trail, please do your part to help remove it. Remember, we are not picking up trash from another person but instead cleaning up for Mother Nature. Happy adventures!

Personal Experience: We’re big on road trips over here at Hidden California and try to take them as often as possible! Nothing beats seeking out new, beautiful territory for the first time. It’s a rush unlike any other.
Camping is usually the way we go, but sometimes when you’ve been roughing it for too many days, you begin longing to go home to fulfill your comfort needs. For others, maybe they don’t enjoy camping at all, or perhaps their friend or significant other does but they prefer staying in hotels. After learning about glamping, I’m telling you, this is the middle ground for so many different needs!
While you’re in the area, make sure to check out Solvang nearby!
We arrived in the middle of the night, tired and not quite sure what to expect. I can assure you that this exceeded all of our expectations. This is truly a perfect blend of camping and hoteling for those who are willing to meet in the middle. We stayed in what is called a Safari Tent, but there are plenty of other options ranging from camping, RV’ing and even further upscale accommodations still keeping a rustic, cabin vibe.
Nothing beats falling asleep in a tent with your traditional nature sounds in the background whilst in the comfort of a high-quality bed. We woke up fresh and were able to check emails and could even watch television from the comfort of our bed if we so desired. Definitely something everyone should experience at least once!
Our room came with two bunk beds and a king bed:
The outdoor kitchen is super impressive and the few is not too shabby! Keep in mind we visited during one of the hottest months of the year, so usually the fields are lush and green:
