Blue Sky Center is an innovative rural community design and development non-profit organization located just outside the small high-desert townsite of New Cuyama, CA.

Please take a moment to read through the description of our Shelter Circle so that you can choose which Hut best fits your needs. Also, it's important to note that, at this time, we cannot host walk-in guests. It is necessary to make a reservation or at the very least contact us to make arrangements for your stay. We'd love to have you but need to know you're coming!

Our five canvas-topped, Shelton-designed huts offer our most inclusive camping experience. Furnished with beds, furniture, linens, lighting,and electrical outlets, you're sure to be comfortable in your one of a kind hut. Circled around the main fire ring and adjacent to Khalili Cantina, you'll have opportunity for community with fellow campers, to relax in the Cantina, or in our numerous hammocks around the property. 

Shelter 1, the Pope, offers a double bed. (sleeps 2)

Shelter 2, the Quonset, offers two single beds. (sleeps 2)

Shelter 3, the Lunette, offers a double bed. (sleeps 2)

Shelter 4, the Gable, offers a double bed. (sleeps 2)

Shelter, 5, the Snail, offers a double bed. (sleeps 2)

There is floor space in each shelter to set up your cot or a couple sleeping bags for kids. You make the call as to how many people each hut will accommodate but the max that is possible is four at the very most.

We have firewood for purchase here - $5/bundle (deposit into the wood box or send via PayPal to @blueskycenter). There are multiple fire rings, so feel free to share with other guests or build your own. We have picnic benches for eating and overhead lights. A large BBQ grill is available for cooking.

We require a $25 cleaning fee for all campers bringing a pet along with them on their trip. Thank you for understanding and we look forward to seeing you and your furry friends!

All photography for commercial use must be pre-approved. Please contact us for more info.

Situated on 267 acres in the high desert, the Blue Sky Center is a great place to relax, stargaze, explore, or perhaps watch a few small planes come and go. It is an ideal basecamp for your activities in the area, which include the nearby Los Padres National Forest, Sierra Madre mountain range, Carrizo Plain National Monument, and Wind Wolves Preserve.

We loved everything about our stay in the Gypsy Hut. The design of the Gypsy Hut, Shelter Circle and Cantina were really cool and made the glamping experience very convenient. The bathrooms and showers in the 2 buildings were nice and it was quiet so there were no lines or crowds leaving us to wait our turn. We enjoyed the campfire area and met some new friends, everyone was so nice. We experienced all types of weather which proves you can have an amazing time no matter what the elements bring. It was hot and windy when we arrived, then a sand and rain storm came through right over us. Nothing got wet in the hut, we were fully covered and we were able to escape the rain and sleep pleasantly. We brought our 2 pups and there were other dogs around the area which was nice. We also had friends using the dispersed camping area and they enjoyed their time as well. If you're looking for a great spot to bring friends, this is definitely the place. We will be back for sure.

Gypsy hut was secluded and beautiful! We had the place to ourselves and utilized the fire pit and wooden tables. We had a great nights sleep under the stars and can't wait to go back! Would highly recommend this for anyone on the road or as a planned destination!

Loved it . The bedding was warm and comfortable and the sheets a wonderful thick cotton (no polyester). It was a delight to be there and sit around the fire chatting with other campers. The commune areas were well equipped and beautiful. Who knew all the history about the area. I would love to bring friends here.

This place was phenomenal! My boyfriend and I stayed in the Gypsy Hut and it was so cozy. It was a bit chilly at night but the heated mattress and the space heater really helped. Melanie showed us around the place and she was really awesome with answering our questions and attending to us. We loved this place so much and plan on coming back ❤️

Definitely not what I was expecting but pleased as punch with our experience. I am really looking forward to returning with my business partner for opportunities to Creatively connect with the community. This is a innovative, forward thinking establishment and it’s right up our alley- we own a production company and nonprofit. Thanks blue sky for the unique and joyous experience.
