Creekside privacy on our 408 acre Ag Preserve, just minutes to the beaches of Bodega Bay and Sebastopol wine country! Relish and relax near the babbling creek overlooking our antique heirloom apple orchard. Listen to the song birds and breathe in the pleasant forest and orchard aromas. Our creekside campsites are nestled among our unique apple orchard, so depending on time of year you can enjoy the blossoms, the growing fruit and the fall harvest time which lasts from as early as September through November. 

We are committed to growing and farming organically, in harmony with nature. We like peace and quiet and sharing our private wonderland with people who need a time out from the busyiness of life and/or want to get reconnected to nature and to themselves.  

Our private ranch is one of the last working horse and sheep ranch on the coast, with well established edible, ornamental and medicinal plant gardens complete with hummingbirds and butterflies. We offer additional garden tours, wild plant identification, forest bathing, sheep and horse tours and Equine Guided Coaching services for an additional cost and depending on availability. Depending on time of year, we can offer a basket of fresh fruits & Veggies, 100% grass fed lamb and sparkling cider for an extra cost.

We are down a very private lane surrounded by large ranches like ours and only a bit over a mile to the ocean as the crow flies. We are especially lucky to be in the organic, sustainable food movement of Sonoma and Marin County. You can venture out to the Bodega Bay beaches, Sebastopol and Sonoma wine tasting, historic Occidental, the redwoods at Armstrong woods in Guerneville, Osmosis enzyme baths in Freestone, the Barlow in Sebastopol for a unique local shopping adventure, grab some oysters on your way in, or head down to Pt. Reyes for the day. All less than an hour from the ranch.

This is a serene refuge to connect with nature and get grounded on land that is so well cared for. Ariana and her husband were thoughtful and accommodating when we needed something. We recommend the guided tour! It is fascinating to learn more about the farm and Ariana's work. We are headed back in just a few weeks.

We loved staying in the orchard on this beautiful property! Our hosts were wonderful and made sure we had everything we could need, and spoiled us with fresh salad greens, herbs, and edible flowers picked right from their garden. Their dogs are great camping companions and we loved having their company during our stay. We loved touring the property and seeing the wide variance in it.

A camping dream! Ariana and her husband provided us with an amazing experience. The location, scenery, and atmosphere were simply stunning! We camping surrounded by apple orchards with peaceful sheep paying us visits during our stay.

Ariana greeted us with fresh eggs from the farm chickens, freshly picked berries and herbs, and beautiful flowers. She was warm and welcoming.

The farm tour was a great addition to our stay. I highly recommend adding it to your trip. We saw their horses and gorgeous views and toured the gardens and stables. Our toddler even got to feed a baby goat a bottle. Unforgettable experience!

We were greeted by Ariana's husband and a pack of very small dogs. They gave us some farm fresh eggs and greens from their garden. It was very secluded and private. If that's what you're looking for I highly recommend! Loved the Creekside Apple Orchard & would stay again.

What a gem this campground is! Ariana and Casey were such wonderful hosts. The site and the surrounding ranch was absolutely beautiful. As was the drive in. The sites are spacious, clean, and perfect for larger groups. We had fresh, spring water and flowers waiting for us too :) Highly recommend getting some firewood and taking the tour. We loved seeing the grounds, gardens, and four-llegged friends. The terriers that roam the property are welcome characters too. We are already thinking about the next time we can make it up there.

Ariana’s campsite was the perfect place for us to enjoy Labor Day weekend in Sonoma County. It’s a great location, close to the ocean, Pacific Coast State Park, the Russian River and local farms and wineries.

The site was very cute and well kept. Ariana and her husband greeted us with home grown fruit and farm fresh eggs. A local farmstand was available as was fire wood. Highly recommended!

Not at all what was advertised

The location and the farm stand were fantastic but the campground was overpriced and not what was advertised. The campsite was packed with other groups within a close vicinity, (which meant we had no privacy and could hear the crying toddlers at night) and covered in rotting apples that attracted yellow jackets. One of the 6 dogs peed on one of our tents ,and all of them stole all the food they could get their paws on. We tried to ignore then until one of them JUMPED IN OUR CAR and grabbed a sausage we had in it. When we tried to ask them to bring her dogs in their house, they were rude to us and continued to let them out. On top of it all, you couldn’t walk down to the creek that was the main selling point, and you had to pay for the garden tours, farm tours, forest bathing, and more.

We're sorry you weren't happy with your stay. It seems all the other campers were happy. Holiday weekends are always more full than other weekends in our experience. Your party was the largest. We do cap the # of total campers. We hope you have better camping experiences in the future.

Shady orchard refuge

The Apple Orchard was a beautiful, shaded summer refuge, ideal for family camping. There were several nearby groups camping with us in the orchard — which concerned me at first — but everyone was friendly, and respected curfew & noise guidelines.

We hit the site in full apple season, so we were charmed by the sounds of falling apples throughout the day. We took advantage of the on-site fruit stand with apple juice and cider. We spent the Labor Day holiday here and there were plenty of daytime activities nearby, including the Tamales Village Annual Founders Day Celebration, Doran beach, and the Wildflower bakery. The town of Valley Ford is also a nearby gem. We spent one day at the campsite — and the orchard provided plenty of shade to escape the hot summer sun. The site is grassy, which allowed the kids to run barefoot and kept them relatively clean.

We went on the farm tour, which I'd highly recommend. The larger property is beautiful and the hosts' garden is amazing. I think as this site continues to develop, it will be even better.

Ariana's site was truly lovely. Camping in the Apple Orchard was magical. With no light pollution around we were able to see the Milky Way at night. There was a pop up stand where you could buy various ciders made from the apples in her orchard as well as other items from neighbors in the area (honey, jams, berries, etc.) If you have the time, it's worth signing up for the tour of the farm!
