Places to see near Estero San Antonio Wonderland
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
Great little spot. Three sites along the San Antonio Estero. Farm has eggs, vegetables and lamb available upon arrival and during stay. Very remote spot. One of the three spots is along the Estero and two have fire rings, Quail Neat is not one of them unfortunately. Site is nicely private among a stand of trees at the end of a short walk but lots of cow traffic in the wetter seasons has made the ground a bit lumpy. Bring your thick insulated mattress for sure. Would be great to have a picnic bench for cooking and lounging. The site is peaceful, quiet and a birder heaven with the swallows out in force at sunset. Overall will definitely be back!
Great getaway in the rolling hills
We had a fantastic stay on Estero San Antonio Wonderland in the Quail Campsite. Looking to get away but not to go to far, we found this campsite last minute and we are glad we did.
Setting/Location: The farm and area is right outside Tomales and very close to lots of things to do. Located on a farm and ranch (Don't worry no animal smells at the campsite) you are provided with a unique experience and unique camping experience located in the rolling grasslands of the areas.
Campsite Location: Tucked back against a hill, the campsite provides refuge and a vantage point looking out over an on-property stream, and hills and farms in the distance.
Campsite Itself: The Quail camp is smaller (plenty of room us, two people one tent) but more isolated that other sites. The campsite is perched up the hill and mostly blocked by trees and shrubs to the front and the direction of other campsites. While we could see others in the distance, we very much had our privacy. Campsite has ample room, water spigot close by and a fire pit which can be used when safe and the season is correct.
Note, the quail camp requires you to park a little bit from the actual campsite. From your car it is about a 50 foot slightly uphill walk. The bathroom (which is very well maintained) is also down closer to where you park. This may be an issue for those who are not as able.
One of our favorite parts of the camp was the views and the amount of songbirds that constantly surround the site. The entire time you are there you hear beautiful noises of birds chirping, making it very relaxing.
Great place to camp and get away.
