Explore the great outdoors with Oak Stone Outfitters
 Have the experience of a lifetime on the Central Coast of California
Spacious, comfortable lodging, exceptional hospitality, sprawl- ing hills, and skilled hunting guides
all combine to offer the experience of a lifetime. Explore the rural beauty of the California Central Coast with Oak Stone
Outfitters’ customized natural retreats. Owner Chad
Wiebe and lead
guide Hunter
Conley, along
with their pro-
fessional team,
provide a vast
range of experi-
ences to hunters
and those wanting
to explore the great
outdoors. What sets their operation apart lies in the lodging and hospitality end of things.
Surrounded by grassy meadows and charming woodlands, the two spacious and comfortable lodges on the Oak Stone property are ideal for relaxing and recharging. Soak up the sun and enjoy coastal breezes in the middle of 80,000 acres of pristine California land.
“The Adobe is an original, 100-year-old historical home with original features and comfortable updates,” office manager Sarah Gaskill said. “It has the cutest farm- house kitchen you’ll ever walk into, and the main dining room seats up to 18 people.”
The Casita lodge, with its more modern approach, still offers a down-home vibe. The buildings share a common patio area, and a nearly 100-year-old former oilfield office transformed into a full-ser- vice bar is situated close by.
“We offer high-end accommo-
dations, yet we are very much about
keeping the camp feel,” Gas-
kill said. “Part of the experience of being
here on the Central Coast is enjoying the outdoors and the laid- back country life. Recently, we’ve had people book a stay with us just for the star-gazing opportunities.”
Enjoy full use of the community dining hall, well-stocked kitchen and amenities, outdoor gas grills, and wood-fire barbecues. Rick Conley, Hunter’s dad, is the camp cook. He sources most of the food and drink locally, including wild game harvested off the Oak Stone property. Meal packages are avail- able, with the accommodations, food, and hospitality repeatedly receiving 5-star reviews.
“We are unique to this area, as we offer all-inclusive experiences and comfort factors,” Gaskill said. “We are not going to put you in bunk beds and have you bring a sleeping bag. We try to make each guest’s stay easier, and welcome them like family.”
