Been here many times. It's best if you visit typically during April before it gets hot and just after the rains in February and March. If this area does receive reasonable rains, then it's amazing the quantity of flowers. One particular year you could see the entire hillside from over 10 miles away glowing orange. Simply amazing. A must visit... More

No dogs allowed. How is it that there are still places that are not pet friendly.? We, ( my dog and I) drove all the way out there, only to turn around.

It's such a beautiful sight to see, when they are in season of course. Only down side is that there are insects. But it's worth it for the beautiful picture!

You never know if it will be a good year for the Poppies but when it is WOW! It's fabulous. The visitors center is a nice facility and recommend checking it out.

What a beautiful place to visit when the poppies are in full bloom. You can look over a sea a yellow flowers that never ends. Be very careful when you walk among them because they are delicate.

Awesome when the poppies are in bloom. The hiking paths and pictures you can take are breath taking. The poppies are everywhere, so if you do not want or can not hike, you do not have to. Great for all ages.

Each year we go here to take lots of photos and walk around to see all the flowers. There are many other flowers in bloom at the same time which makes it even more interesting to see. I'll be back next year.

Unfortunately, the weather and drought has been a damper on the poppies, which really haven't been in bloom the last few years. However when they are, it is spectacular to witness a sea of orange across the valley. This event occurs usually during the months, beginning in late March through May. Rainfall plays a major factor. A must see when... More

We drove through here and was amazed by the beautiful color. Well worth the drive. Check the website though because there is a small window when they are blooming. This year it was very early .
