About Canvas Safari Tent
Welcome to AutoCamp Russian River, an outdoor adventure experience where you can sleep among the redwoods of the Russian River Valley while enjoying luxury amenities.
Our canvas tents are a highlight of the AutoCamp property. Each tent sleeps two and boasts queen-size beds with plush linens, lights, electrical outlets, and electric blankets for warmth at night. A ramped pathway leads to your tent's entrance, and your patio holds lounge chairs and a campfire-style fire pit and grill. Three roasting logs are provided for roasting s'mores or cooking food over your fire pit.
During your stay, you'll also have access to our mid-century modern clubhouse, which includes ultra-modern bathrooms and showers (including Malin + Goetz bath products). You're also welcome to enjoy free coffee and juice every morning in the clubhouse, and local wine, beer, and snacks are available for purchase in our Canteen.
The town of Guerneville is only a five minute bike ride away (bicycles are provided!), with restaurants, bars, ice cream shops, antiques, and wine tasting. Hikes and outdoor excursions abound in the area, and there's nothing like a leisurely float down the Russian River.

The vibe at Canvas Safari Tent

Tent #31 at AutoCamp was one of the fanciest camping experiences I've had—pristine white bathrobes, heated blankets, full-length mirrors, and luxury-grade showers. I can still smell the bergamot citrus soap on my hands (or was that the DIY fresh-squeezed orange juice in the communal area? It's hard to parse the decadence, really.) After a day of floating the nearby Russian River, you'd be hard-pressed trying to find a more deluxe camp spot to rest your sun-burnt head.
First-time campers or ride-or-die-glampers will love AutoCamp. You can cook on the fire grill (complete with 3 logs) in front of your tent, or head 2 minutes down the road to Guerneville where there's a ton of cute lil restaurants and bars. AutoCamp's helpful staff can also point you to their wine, s'more, and treats-packed tuck shop, only a few steps from your bed.
We had such a blast staying in these tents. Everything at AutoCamp is extremely well done. The modern-meets-rustic aesthetic will make you want to move in permanently.
The tents themselves are spacious and clean with lots of helpful additions like extra towels and blankets, an ice chest, and water heater. The bed was super comfy and toasty with the electric blanket. We stayed in tent #33 close to the clubhouse.
We loved cooking dinner and breakfast in the AutoCamp-provided cast-iron skillet over the fire right outside our tent. We'd brought minimal cooking supplies with us and AutoCamp was able to supplement anything additional we needed. In fact, if you run out of wine, cheese, or marshmallows, they can help you with that, as well.
We were up pretty early with the light. The fog had come in which was charming, and we spent the morning sipping coffee and fresh-squeezed orange juice around the fire in the club house, catching up on work emails: we were playing hooky and service is spotty around the Russian River. I was happy enough to not have to fetch and boil water for my morning coffee, but to follow that with a luxurious hot shower? Yes, please.
The sun came out and we decided to slowly make our way back to San Francisco along the coast so we could stop for oysters in Marshall. We'd enjoyed the grounds so much, we barely left!
