Camping around the Bay Area is always a challenge, with so many outdoor aficionados it is hard to find a place that is not overly explored. Camp Mesa was the antithesis of that.

Because it is at least an hour and a half away, it is a trek to get out here. Given that, it is definitely worth it. Camp Mesa has so many options in terms of how you want to camp. If you like a bit more of a view, there is a trail to a campsite that has that. If you want more of a river site, you can find one near the river that passes through the property. If you want a bit of a nestled spot with an abundance of shade, you can stay in the Tipi site. Grand Mesa defintely has the BEST views out of all the sites but it's a bit of a trek to get there! Hard work is well rewarded though :)

The scenery and the hikes were all amazing and were easy hikes for the entire group. Overall this is such a welcoming place for people of all camping levels. The staff is so accommodating and helpful and are doing a great job to help everyone enjoy the outdoors as best as possible. Keep up the good work!

Grand Mesa is a beautiful and secluded site at Chanselor Ranch. The view and privacy at the site is well worth the short hike (about 1 mile up hill). This site also has some wind protection which is an added bonus!

Grand Mesa was beautiful! we stayed mid-June for a weekend. The staff were very helpful and did not leave us guessing on any questions we had.

The site and property is beautiful. you can hear the waves on from the beach and watch the sunset over the ocean. Town was very close and easy to get to.

The firepit was a little small but we managed easily. Firewood is also a bit expensive in teh area, $10 for a milk crate amount of wood, pretty steep.

parking wasn't difficult but there were extra cars there and not everyone was parking with others in mind, blocking gates or other cars in.

Getting to the site was a hike! Grand Mesa was at the top of a hill and making the hike with firewood, gear, and water was rough. I would suggest bringing a wagon of some sort unless you have a backpacking set up.

Beautiful private site with stunning views. The farm is cute and Chanselor Ranch is fun to explore, with lots of other sites available. This particular one happens to be the most remote, very windy from 2-11pm, and a longgg ways up a steep hill. Best if you have a backpacking setup and a sturdy tent (one of our tent poles snapped due to the wind).

We ended up not even staying at camp- we couldn’t get all of our supplies up with just a mom and 2 small children. I’m sure i didn’t read the info close enough, so not their fault. We thought it would be a 100-200 foot hike in, but we got only about 500 feet up the hill (with a wagon) before I could tell it wasn’t for us. So be prepared for a good uphill hike in, and definitely not for novice hikers/campers like us. Everything else was good and the staff very nice!
