Care Guide

About Crazy Diamond

Crazy Diamond is 30-acres of private, off-grid space:

 

  • We are across the road from 2370 Highway 33, Ventucopa CA 93252

  • Exact pinpoint location here

  • Look for the sign on the right-side of the road with our 'sunburst' logo (at the top of this website)

  • Follow the arrows up the dirt road to the parking area

      

 
What we have

 

  • Stunning nighttime skies, sunsets, and sunrises

  • Designated art and performance spaces

  • Private tents nestled in the hills

  • National forest hikes

  • Farm-to-table food - Brunch, Snacks, and Dinner provided

  • Bonfires

  • Filtered water refill stations

  • Hot showers and flushing toilets

  • Hand washing and sterilization stations

  • Pool Oasis

  • Yoga Deck

  • Double Tipi for dancing and workshops


 

What we don’t have

 

  • Internet/Cell

    • Wifi is not available

    • Cell connections are spotty, and best at the car-park so plan accordingly

    • We do have signal boosters; outcomes vary by cell provider

 

  • Unlimited electricity

    • We are off the grid, so power is limited - battery packs are a good idea

    • Electric car charging is not available 

    • The closest supercharger is Ojai and another one in Tejon Ranch, however the Buckhorn hotel has two tesla "destination chargers" that can charge 23 miles/hr while eating lunch 12 miles away from us


 

Experience Readiness

 

Located at 2700 ft elevation, Crazy Diamond is considered a high-desert climate (Hot and dry (in summer), and very cold at night with temperatures dropping below freezing in winter). We share the environment with all of Mother Nature’s guests; including adorable bunnies, cackling coyotes, and the occasional rattlesnake. Respect nature and come prepared.

Community Ethos

 

Crazy Diamond is your community; as such, we ask that everyone consider the following principles and prerequisites before attending an event:

 

Leave it better

 

  • Our home is your home; treat our campsite as your own backyard

  • This means ‘MOOPing’ (removing any Matter Out of Place) and being mindful of the impact

 

Respect for one another

 

  • Everyone deserves kindness, support, and mutual respect. Treat others as you wish to be treated

  • We practice consent across the board. Be sure to check-in and receive positive consent at all times. Be humble and prepared to alter your behavior if you receive anything other than a resounding ‘yes’

  • If you notice something awry, let us know, we are here to create a safe environment

 

Covid-safety

 

 

Upon arrival

  • Text the WhatsApp/Signal group/group organizer when you know your arrival time

  • Don't drive more than 10 MP once you enter the property as not doing so will kill the baby olive trees

  • Meet us at the saloon or the car-park (your group organizer will let you know)

  • RVs and trailers will park right outside of the parking lot, perpendicular to the road and walk to meet us in the saloon for check-in

  • You will then be directed to your tent to drop off your bags, and re-park all cars in the parking lot for the weekend- no driving on site

  • If you come after check in ends, in all circumstances, park your car in the parking lot and walk over to the saloon for directions to your tent.

 

Social media policy

 

  • We respect individual privacy and want to create a safe space for everyone to express themselves fully. Please attain conscious consent before posting anything.




 

Be prepared, get excited, 

and create something beautiful together...
