The Blue Sky Center is a 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 Shelter 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 Shelton designed shelters 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 (this one), the Pope, offers a double bed. (sleeps 2)

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

Shelter 3, the Gypsy, has two single bunk beds. (sleeps 2-3)

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 oak fire wood for purchase here - $5/bundle (deposit into the wood box).The main fire ring is large and is commonly the center of activity in the evening. We have picnic benches for eating and overhead lights. A large grill is available to place over the fire for cooking, and a smaller wood grill is available for cooking as well.

**new update as of November 2017: due to the staff time required to clean huts and prepare for the next guest we are requiring a 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!**

Situated on 330 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.

Beautiful location in an adorable hut!! Extra blankets for cold nights are available but bring that sleeping bag- it gets chilly at night!

Overall we had a great time and were pleasantly surprised how many ammenities were available (stove, dishes, bathrooms, showers). Highly recommend!

The Quonset hut was very clean and a perfect size for me, my husband and our 3y.o. daughter. The entire place was very quiet. The host was very helpful and everything that you need is there from firewoods, heaters, sink, clean water for drinking and clean restrooms with toilet papers. One thing that I’ve noticed is the residential neighborhood across the campsite are very visible which I hope has a way of blocking the view both ways. Other than that, we had a great time unwinding and enjoying each other’s company. Hopefully we will be back with friends soon!

Goofing around.When your kid does a better walk-away-pose than you. Every space is picture perfect. Cheers to glamping!

We had an amazing time at the Blue Sky Center in January, perfect way to spend a long weekend. I recommend reaching out to Robbie at Condor's Hope Vineyard, if they are in town you can schedule a private wine tasting session! It's a great way to see more of New Cuyama and it was a wonderful experience.

The site and the hut were great. We were the only campers at the time, giving us the perfect opportunity to explore.

Blue Sky is so dreamy. The huts are adorable and offer a cozy, sheltered camping experience. The restrooms and kitchen make it more glampy than campy. I highly recommend getting a crew of friends to come out and rent all of the huts. We asked to set-up an outdoor movie with a projector and the team helped us make it happen and it was awesome.

Some tips:

-Get food before you get into town. There's a market but we were told by locals not to buy any produce or perishables there
-Use the free community pool if it's hot out
-Bring extra blankets, ice and towels
