Located off the Highway 33 near the Highway 166 junction at the end of Forest Service Road 7N04A, Rancho Nuevo Campground has three designated campsites which consist of fire rings and space to park. The campsites were renovated in fall 2017. "Rancho Nuevo" means "new camp" or "new ranch" in Spanish. This camp was so named because at one time the land here became the "new ranch" for part of the Reyes family whose home place was near Ozena on the upper Cuyama River.
Rancho Nuevo is managed by the Forest Service and does require an Adventure Pass in order to camp. The camp is not very popular but does see a lot of use during hunting season.
The Rancho Nuevo Trail starts at the campground making this campground a more popular parking area than an actual campground. Check it out, sure is a beautiful place to camp and study the nearby cliff faces and canyon walls.
