The Grove campsites are located near the historic Narrow Gauge Railroad bed on a family owned working ranch in coastal Northern California. The camp sites are nestled in a pasture and grove of mixed Eucalyptus, willow and cypress trees. The sites are perfect for tents or camper vans, there are no hook-ups for RVs (the access to the camp sites also prohibits long vehicles). 

There is access to a composting camp toilet. The ranch itself is 300 acres of rolling hills pasture, with hilltop views of the Estero Americano valley. The Grove is home to many varieties of raptors and other birds-providing excellent bird watching. Seasonally there are blackberries to fill your containers, and some hiking. The sites are subject to some road noise, as we are right on Hwy 1. We are mere minutes from the quaint towns of Valley Ford, Tomales, and Dillon Beach, and a short drive from Bodega, Bodega Bay or Marshall, Pt. Reyes Station and Inverness. Nearby attractions include: Sonoma Coast beaches, Pt. Reyes National Seashore, coastal hiking trails, local farm-to-table eateries. Inland attractions include: redwoods, wine tasting, Russian River activities and so much more.

The Grove was a lovely little farm camp near the coast. We enjoyed an evening filled with a walk around the farm visiting some cows, turkey and the farm cats. Our son had a ball playing pirate ship on a downed tree. The outhouse is oddly enough worth a mention - it is so nicely designed with sky lights, solar night lights, and super clean. A definite great little 3 site camp ground.

Hands Full Farm recently added three covid-safe campsites to their grounds. We were fortunate to stay at one of these sites over the first weekend in October 2020. Overall a top notch experience. Plenty of space, lovely grounds, the cutest outhouse we've ever experienced, and so much fun farm and wild animal watching for both young and old. For more info and photos, check out a recent review for Hands Full Farm on Google Maps.

We found the driveway into the camp site a bit hard to find. If you travel south on highway 1 from Valley Ford Road, you'll pass the Hands Full Farm driveway and then make a right at the next driveway. It's narrow and looks private but you're in the right spot. You'll see the first campground gate immediately to the left. Open, drive through, close, and follow the tracks to the second gate. You have arrived!

We can't wait to come back! Thanks for hosting us, Anna!

It was fabulous! Beautiful place with a checker board on the picnic tables. Sites were very well diatanced. Thanks also for going above and beyond to assist us with our car trouble!

This place was great! Planning on going again. While fires are not allowed at this listing, you can go to Doran beach ~15 mins away to use the fire pits and grills.

Great, quite spot surrounded by the sounds of nature (and the occasional car at night). We'll definitely be back as it is a wonderful place to post up for easy access to the coast.

We briefly met Anna upon arrival (when we pulled into the wrong driveway!), and she was very friendly. The campsite itself is kind of nothing special -- a dry field recently used for cattle grazing located adjacent to Highway 1 -- so be forewarned that there are lots of dry cow patties as well as some noise/lack of privacy when cars occasionally zip by. However, there is a clean, well stocked and very nicely designed outhouse, so that was nice. There are three campsites all in sight of each other, but we left each other alone and since two of us were in campers we used our vehicles to block each other's view and create some privacy. In all, I'd say this is a fine place to stop for the night on your way somewhere else or as a jumping off point to places around Bodega Bay or Tomales Bay. The nearby tiny town of Tomales has a great bakery and deli, and we loved going to Dillon Beach where dogs are allowed off leash (there were tons of families too).

Anna was responsive and helpful, and we loved the cows mooing at the nearby ranches. The sites are under big trees on soft, dry grounds, and all are in the shades. The outhouse is clean, well-kept, and cutely decorated. The only downside is that it’s right next to the main road though so you hear the vehicles speeding by.
