Pitch your tent or park your camper by a wonderful lake on our 80-acre oak woodland and enjoy the sounds of nature -- birds on the lake, frogs, and crickets. You may see deer, geese, turkeys or a jack rabbit in the early morning. Our dark skies are great for relaxing under the stars. The location is perfect for wine tasting in Murphys (5 minutes), attending a concert at Ironstone (10 minutes) site seeing in the gold country, hiking in the Sierra, and playing in high alpine lakes. We are about half way between Yosemite and Lake Tahoe. 

We offer four sites: Site 1 is a walk-in tent site near the lake, about 200 feet from parking. Site 2 is a car camping site suitable for a tent, camper, or small RV, also near the lake.

We are a private retreat center and intentional community engaged in healing work.  You may occasionally see some of our community members who live here interacting on and around the land but there are no residences near the camping area and you can enjoy a sense of privacy. In the spirit of the sacred container provided by this land, we ask that you refrain from heavy partying. Our land is best for enjoying nature and relaxing under the stars.

Very peaceful little property. Beautiful and well maintained dirt road coming in. The host, Chris, met us out front and gave us the low down which was helpful to know where to head. The walk from car to campsite was only maybe 2-3 minutes around the side of the lake and located under a beautiful oak tree. There are other rentals on the site (air b&b and a little retreat center) but even with those spaces occupied we barely noticed them there. The shower was great too. The water was plenty warm and relaxing. It suited us splendidly.

We also got to watch a pretty epic goose battle on the lake in the morning. Which was pretty great too. Luckily the geese defending their egg seemed to be winning the fight when we left.

This is a great getaway to a peaceful pond. The parking spot is a short walk from the camping area, but close enough to easily set up camp with everything you need from your car. You will set up right next to the pond in a clearing that is nicely shaded by trees. The trees around the pond give a good amount of shade to hang out in when the sun become too hot mid day. Bring your friends or family for a quiet spot by the water and wake up to the ducks and geese swimming around and greeting you on the shore.
