I am your park ranger responsible for your safety peace & comfort during your stay in my private garden next to the creek. If you are inexperienced living outdoors I am available to share from my knowledge and encourage you to do your homework before embarking into the wild!
The neighbors are afraid of strangers and instigated a possibly illegal search and seizure according to Solano Sheriff's department. Be forewarned to stay clear of nosy neighbors and report any contact with me immediatly. If I have frightened you please take a deep breath. The zoning for this rare riparian land is watershed and camping is permitted with a signed note on your person should law enforcement request it. This is for all of our safety and I am operating as an occupational hobby not a commercial business.

The vibe at Headwaters riparian retreat
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
My boyfriend and I spent a night at the riparian sanctuary. We were greeted by the host, Eleanor and her puppy, Leyla when we arrived and gave us a map and showed us around the grounds. It was a short (probably .5 mile), but steep hike to the Plaza campsite, but when we arrived, there was a tent pitched for us, which was great! The campsite was extremely private and had an amazing view of the hills. We roamed the grounds, relaxed in the hammock, and lounged around in the creek waters. There are mosquitoes and poison oak around, so I'd recommend bringing long pants, bug spray, and Tecnu just in case. This place is great for people seeking and adventurous camping experience!
What an incredible property! Eleanor is a lovely host, and even shared beers with us when we arrived! The communal areas on the property are awesome to enjoy, including a yurt, a treehouse, and the creek, which has a swimming hole! One thing to note is that the campsites are up across the water and many of them are a ways up the hill,, so you'll need to carry your supplies up a pretty steep path to get to the sites. It's totally manageable, but don't plan on car camping where you can just grab things piece by piece. I'd absolutely stay here again, Eleanor was amazing and the land gorgeous, just make sure to pack in a way you can hike your things up to the campsite!
