    I first visited the ranch a few years ago, and was amazed at the amount of space available. Lots of camping spaces, a large lodge and deck, a more quiet guest house, and a bunk house for groups. Great variety of lodging, all within 60 miles of San Diego.

    It contains healthy, mature oak, cedar and pine trees (a rarity in many places due to drought), non-stop views, clear skies for star gazing, and lots of quiet spaces for camping, hiking, bird watching and wildlife viewing.

    I've looked at other campgrounds and cabin rentals located a few miles up the road, near the top of the mountain- and there is no comparison. Even in winter, this place offers warmth and sunshine on the southwest slopes of Palomar Mountain. The views extend into Mexico to the south, and Catalina Island to the west.

    Where else can you watch the sun set into the ocean from 60 miles inland?

    It's possible to enjoy privacy and seclusion at the Guest House when you want to get away, or reserve more space to share with friends. They even have corrals/stables for horses, and welcome well behaved dogs.

    The Ranch is off-grid and has its own spring water. Energy is via solar panels and generator.

    A truly magical place- wonderful and much closer to San Diego vs. driving thru traffic to Big Bear, Idyllwild or Arrowhead. I really enjoy visiting.

  • SYNOPSIS: Okay for primitive camping, but WATCH OUT for poor, unmaintained and hazardous roads!

    I specifically called about the access roads in advance and the owner told me any passenger car with standard clearance should be fine.  I have all wheel drive but could barely get down there without scraping the bottom of my car, which has the same ground clearance as a Honda Civic.  In short, what HSR told me is true for getting TO Harrison Ranch, but it's NOT true once inside, particularly in the camping area.

    Had I known the condition of the internal roads, I NEVER would have brought my car there.  Last time I took a car like mine to a place like HSR I lost my dual exhaust AND catalytic converters.  The repair bill was over $3000!  HSR needs to come clean on this as I feel I was misinformed and/or misled, and my stomach was in knots even though I am an excellent and generally fearless driver.

    In short, HSR needs to either WARN people about the dicey condition of the roads on the property, or DO SOMETHING about it!  Either fill in around the huge exposed roots, or remove them.  This isn't rocket science - it's called common sense and common courtesy.  To invite people onto the property without warning them of the hazards seems directly at odds with HSR's message of love, positivity and selflessness.  It's probably also the kind of negligence that would support a lawsuit, particularly when the owner not only fails to warn, but actually encourages people to drive in in normal cars.  

    I'm just trying to help HSR as well as all of its patrons by providing fair warning - the internal roads are HAZARDOUS!

    For primitive camping the views, nature sounds, and service level are great! I enjoyed staying in the cabin, too, and I understand they've made improvements since I last stayed here that might make it 5-star.

18187 Nate Harrison Grade, Palomar Mountain Road, Palomar, CA 92060

Nate Harrison is one of San Diego County’s legendary pioneers. Fables abound regarding this former enslaved African-American from the South who lived high upon the west slope of Palomar Mountain into the early 1900s. There are numerous quaint tales of his frontier life. For example, this rugged yet compassionate mountain man allegedly added lizards to his coffee grinds for extra flavor, made batches of homemade mountain lion jerky, and met every visitor with a warm smile.


Many historical photos add to his legend. Over two dozen stunning turn-of-the-century black-and-white photographs of Harrison exist. He is shown in various poses; sitting at his cabin, engaging with white traveler-tourists, and walking his dogs. Harrison may be the most frequently photographed 19th-century San Diegan. It was as if he was San Diego’s version of the Eiffel Tower; tourists frequently took his picture to prove that they had visited the precipitous mountain and made it to the top.


Historical archaeology has the potential to evaluate, scrutinize, broaden, and deepen insights into Nate Harrison’s life and legend. This report presents findings from the inaugural 2004 San Diego State University field excavation season at the Nate Harrison site. The three-week field school successfully located the remains of Harrison’s cabin and uncovered over 6,100 artifacts that date to Harrison’s late 19th-century and early 20th-century occupation at Palomar Mountain. Although there had been previous pot-hunting on the site, the 2004 excavations marked the first scientific archaeology on the property.


The property is privately owned, and the owners not only allowed excavations on their property, they went out of their way to make the field school a resounding success. They gave the archaeological team unlimited access to their campsite, latrine, generator, and tractor. In addition, their interest in local history and care for the site over the years has been nothing short of inspirational.


The property is about two-thirds of the way up the west slope of Palomar Mountain. It is off of Nate Harrison Grade, northeast of Pauma Valley. USGS aerial photographs and topographic maps offer an overview of the region. The site location is not specified here for confidentiality and security reasons established by the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and maintained by the South Coastal Information Center (SCIC).


The beautiful forest and mountain meadows of Palomar Mountain State Park are in northern San Diego County on the west side of Palomar Mountain. Large pine, fir and cedar trees make the park one of the few areas in southern California with a Sierra Nevada-like atmosphere. The park features camping, picnicking, hiking, and fishing (trout) in Doane Pond. Coniferous forests cover much of the 1,862 acres, in contrast to the dry lowlands surrounding the mountain.


Elevation within the park averages 5,000 feet above sea level, making evenings cool even during the summer. A number of vista points offer spectacular panoramic views both westerly toward the ocean and inland toward the desert, particularly from Boucher Hill Summit. There, you'll also find the historic Boucher Hill Fire Lookout.


The park is open from dawn 'til dusk daily. However, call or check the banner at the top of this page for possible changes due to budget cuts.

From Highway 76, either of two roads can be used to reach the park. The one from Rincon Springs (County Road S6) is scenic but rather steep and winding. County Road S7 from Lake Henshaw is longer, but its gentle grade makes it more suitable for heavily loaded vehicles and those pulling trailers. To the east, beyond the limits of the park, is the world-famous Palomar Observatory and the highest point of the 6,100-foot mountain. Many park visitors make the eight-mile trip up the road to the Palomar Observatory, which is operated by the California Institute of Technology and open to the public.

A variety of hiking trails is available within the park. Some lend themselves to short, leisurely walks, and others are suitable for vigorous, all-day hikes. The scenery includes open meadows and thick coniferous or oak forests.


Please don't take anything home except memories and photographs. All features are protected, and disturbing or collecting is not allowed... even pine cones. Leave any historical artifacts you might find alone and report the location to park staff. An artifact “out of place” is historical knowledge lost.


Trails are open to foot traffic only. Dogs and mountain bikes are not allowed on trails. Please note that only cash and checks are accepted for the day use entrance fee.

    This venue is an absolute dream with the most beautiful views and accommodations. It's perfect for anyone wanting a serene outdoor wedding away from the bustle of LA and San Diego. Keep in mind the drive up is on a dirt road and can be scary for some guests. Also, power is limited, so if you're planning an evening event, you'll need to be conservative with how you use power. I loved everything about this place, though, and plan on returning.

    If you've ever dreamed of your wedding on a magical place atop a mountain, this is it! Harrison Serenity Ranch was the perfect venue to celebrate our union with family and friends surrounded by nature and a majestic view of Pauma Valley. HSR offers different options to where to host your reception, dining and dancefloor that accommodates your needs and desires. The dance party with live music at the barn was memorable. I couldn't have asked for any other location, it was better than a dream. Big Kudos to Vicky, April and everybody at HSR!

    Really difficult to contact

    Ranch is difficult to make arrangements to see venue, then once contract was signed little to no response for any venue related inquiries.
    We cancelled this venue due to fire road condition and lack of accessibility and safety for older / handicap / children.
    Since cancellation we have tried to get contracted refund for $1000 deposit - same "no response" attitude.

    Harrison Serenity Ranch's reply:

    The Nate Harrison Grade road leading to Harrison Serenity Ranch has been re-done and graded. Parts of the road were widen to make it easier to travel for tourist. Thanks to the county our roads is the best its ever been. We provide shuttle service and work closely with the casinos near by for arrangements with the shuttle. Michael received a refund for a $1,000 deposit and we wished you the best. There are several ways to get a hold of us at Harrison Serenity Ranch and apologized that we could not accommodate you for your needs.

It was located in an old house, but for some reason there were no large barracks inside and the cadets slept two or. Three people in a room. As a neighbor, I got a 14-year-old Valera, who was studying for a course older than me. Our beds were creaky and at first I did not dare to masturbate, so as not to wake Valera.

To hold the girl so that he could lower her panties and insert an enema tip into her ass. Then everything went like clockwork, the enema can shrank, and after a couple of minutes Alena was noisily defecating, sitting on the pot. After that, she sulked at her brother for about half a day without speaking to him.

Max fucked her like crazy. I stood nearby and stroked Max, then Jan. Then I knelt in front of Yana and began to caress her tongue.

The faster he moved, the louder he wanted to scream, but he muffled every groan with his lips and drank like the strongest wine. We lost control of our minds, completely surrendering to our bodies and senses, giving each other pleasure. My fingers gripped the guy's slightly damp shoulders, his movements became so fast that it seemed that he wanted to tear me apart.
