The vibe at Olamentko Sites
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
We had a WONDERFUL stay at Olamentko. We rented sites 1-4 to accommodate 16 people and had ample room to set up camp, cook, and play. It's a < 1 mile walk to the beach, and hiking to the top of the nearby hills got us a view of the most beautiful sunset. Our host was gracious, helpful, and informative. It was fun to see the horses, cattle, and sheep all nearby, but we weren't disturbed by any of them. There's port-a-potties close to the campsite, and nice restroom facilities near the main house (that's also where the water is, so I'd recommend brining your own to avoid multiple trips). I'd also recommend purchasing firewood ahead of time because it's SUPER difficult to find in the town. Hope to make it back out here again soon!
Had a blast at Olamentko! The spot was beautiful and the green rolling hills right next to the coast and sand dunes made for awesome scenery. The campsite was super organized with fire pits, trash cans and port-a-potties. Had a blast camping here and was nice to be a 15-minute walk from the beach!
Unfortunately at the last minute my plans had to change so that I couldn't camp at Chanslor - but the staff was so helpful and gracious, answered my questions and replied quickly to an email I sent. I'm planning to actually make it up there soon - from the experience I had the staff seem very kind and helpful!!
Picturesque with very pretty hills overlying the camping areas and roaming horses and long hair cows. Clean bathrooms with showers are available a short walk away at the main check-in house. The beach is a pretty 5-10 min walk. What I didn't appreciate before booking is that the campsite is actually below the level of the road and also that the road (Hwy 1) isn't far away. There can be some road noise and light pollution. It's not deal-breaking but you should know you're not way off the beaten track. I'd do it again without hesitation. A nice balance of convenience and natural beauty.
Great campsite near Bodega Bay, lot of open space with some shade. There are plenty of trails and outdoor things to do around there, restaurants in Bodega Bay, privacy to do whatever please you. Just be careful when you go during the rainy season, some of the road into campsite are not pave (dirt path which get muddy and then chaos ensued, but that might be an adventure you're into)
Loved camping here. It can get a little windy and was chilly during the night. Chanslor Ranch has some very cool hiking trails and it's less than a mile walk to the beach. Some of the sites were a little wet so best to bring a tarp for spring camping.
This is a nice alternative to the RV/generator nightmare that is Bodega Dunes Campground. Olamentko is situated along a small creek on a grassy slope and has nice shade coverage. Close but not too close to the very clean non-stinky porta potties. The porta potties even have little foot pump sinks with soap! One of them pumped dirt out with the water...but one worked great and it was nice to be able to wash your hands. A steep walk uphill you'll find pay showers. You can also walk down to the beach, not a short walk, but a pleasant walk. The slope is sort of steep, it was slightly difficult to find a flat spot but we did ok. Check in was pleasant, very nice host. Charged $5 for my dog, I did not see that posted but I may have overlooked it. Not a big deal. Pleasant stay but nothing super special.
