Oak Canyon Ranch

5305 Santiago Canyon Road Silverado, CA 92676 | Orange | 714-563-9778

Location Description:

Oak Canyon Ranch is a park in canyon areas of Orange County. If you’re an outdoor festival kind of person, Oak Canyon Ranch is the closest thing to God’s country you’re liable to find in OC. From Hootenanny to Punk Rock Picnic, there is no car show, carnival or hippie revival that doesn’t pass through here without stopping at this 100-acre property complete with camp sites, RV park, crystal blue lake and green grass (not the kind you roll up in the back of the van). Nestled in the mountains of Silverado Canyon, it’s far enough away to feel rural and unincorporated but close enough to a gas station that you’re not totally fucked without a map and compass. When there’s not a huge festival raging, it’s still a bucolic place to go camping and remind yourself that not all of Orange County is suburban nothingness. Really close to Modjeska.
