Great spot for camping right off the California coast line. We brought our puppy who loved playing in the river right behind the tipi (nice sound to fall asleep to). The tipi itself is huge and the directions were very clear from host's directions. Convenient walking path to the rocks and water made catching the sunset easy. Will be back!
Absolutely gorgeous place to camp—photos cannot really do it justice. We loved the spacious teepee, the sounds of the creek as we slept, being in walking distance from the ocean. The entire property which includes several campsites was thoughtfully curated, private, well-outfitted and a pleasure to discover.
