Part of the historic Corral de Quati Land Grant, the Ted Chamberlin Ranch continues the legacy of a working cattle ranch on the oak-studded hills of Santa Barbara County. We have now opened this majestic landscape to film locations. Many projects have found the Ranch perfect for their needs. There are 8000 acres of pristine natural beauty. The rich topography is extremely varied, including mountain vistas, grassy hills, mossy oak groves and much more. Outbuildings, oil derricks and traditional fencing accent the landscape. The ranch headquarters features historic barns, cattle chutes, and incredible old ranch equipment. Please visit our website and schedule a tour to scout the ranch in person! We would love to meet you and show you our amazing property.

Set amidst acres of wilderness flanked by the picturesque Santa Ynez and San Rafael Mountains, lies glimmering Cachuma Lake. Here you will find practically everything you need for a relaxing getaway in the great outdoors. Mild temperatures, typically sunny skies, and celebrated fishing conditions make camping here during winter months exceptionally rewarding.

The County entered into a long-term lease with the Federal Bureau of Reclamation in 1953 to manage the 9,000 acre Cachuma Lake Recreation Area. Cachuma Lake was formed by the construction of Bradbury Dam in that same year.

Located off scenic Highway 154 in the Santa Ynez Valley, Cachuma Lake is midway between the beaches and bustle of Santa Barbara and the Danish Community of Solvang. At any age... in any season... you'll find that the Cachuma Lake Recreation Area offers a fun and relaxing getaway.

The Marina is open year-round and sells bait and tackle, fuel and fishing licenses. They also have a full rental fleet to get you out on the water.
Dogs are Welcome! The money collected from the dog fee program has paid for and will continue to upkeep a dog park for you to take advantage of when you come to stay with us! Please be sure to read the signs before you enter and remember all other rules still apply. Dogs are required to be on a leash of 6 ft. or less anywhere else in the Park. We ask all dog handlers to bring a current copy of proof of rabies vaccination. Don't forget dogs are allowed in boats, as long as they have no contact with the water at any time.

Discover your inner artist at a Painting in the Vineyard event! We invite you to grab a glass of wine and a paintbrush and join us for a fun and relaxing outdoor experience. Bring your friends and family and capture the scenery on canvas. Our local vineyards provide a beautiful, stress-free environment that will both inspire your creative spirit and indulge the wine-lover in you.

No painting experience necessary--a trained, local artist will walk you through the entire two-hour painting process step-by-step, and you'll take home a landscape painting of your own to commemorate your trip to wine country.

Consider a painting event to celebrate birthdays, bachelorette parties, bridal showers, anniversaries, girls trips, family reunions, corporate team-building events and more.

Visit www.gypsystudiosart.com/events to see our full array of Painting in the Vineyard classes. Or call 805.990.2105 to inquire about private events.
