This campsite is completely unprotected and different from what's pictured. When we stayed at Sunset Camp, it was extremely windy and almost impossible to get a fire going. We made the most of it and it is a beautiful view from the top, but if I visited again, I'd choose other campsites over this one in particular.

Amazing property and campsite. There are a few sites near the entrance and then a few sites perched atop a fairly steep hill. Sunset Camp is the farthest hike (up the hill), and the views are incredible. Would definitely stay here again.

Would stay here again! Upper camp grounds have the best views. Because it is a farm though, be careful of ticks!

Heed the warning about wind at this site. There is NO shelter from the wind. I checked the weather report before arriving, it was 5 MPH in Bodega Bay; at Sunset Site it was so windy my tent collapsed whenever I tried to put on the fly, and was bending in the wind without the fly. Turns out the wind whips up the hills and accelerates? Nearby campsites in the hills fared better with shelter from large rocks, and it was pleasantly breezy at the lower campsites down in the trees. The setting was gorgeous, the layout nice and the host organized and friendly; but finally after the wind bent a tent pole, I packed up and left before sunset. I'd go back to a different site at Chanslor Ranch, but Sunset Site can have serious wind even when it's mild wind in other areas.
