Currently, as we expand our vision of an immersive learning experience on an apple orchard, we offer 1 hour tours in various locations on this beautiful 5-acre apple orchard. We allow free tent camping to all folks who wish to take our tours. We use strict organic practices for the apples and vegetables we grow here. We are also 215 compliant and friendly. There is currently one communal campfire pit as we reach dry season, but there is room for privacy as well as community. The Eel river is a short walk to one of the best swimming holes on the river. The Avenue of the Giants is a short drive to many day hikes. Please arrive no later than 7pm so we can show you around before nightfall. Please message us if you cannot make it by 7pm. Lastly, please drive 25 mph down Holmes Flat Rd. (the speed limit reads 35) as there are kids and animals that live and play near the road.

Very nice place to stay with really helpful hosts, quiet and peaceful.
The only bad thing was the ‘portaloo’ as it was gross... very full and smelly! We stopped drinking so we didn’t have to go.

Thank you Marcus for your review, we have the porta potties cleaned every other week and we had a lot of extra guests that week so the timing was off for a clean John. In the peak of the season next year we will ensure we have it cleaned once a week. Cheers.

We had a lovely overnight here! Bowie was warm and welcoming and we made ourselves right at home! We walked to the river after setting up our tents under blossoming apple trees, and had a nice fire in the evening.

We are so glad you all chose Feisty Dog Orchard to lay your heads before the half marathon and that you got a little taste of our paradise. Come back when the apples are ready for picking and we will press fresh cider!

Bowie was very friendly and helpful. It was a great location for checking out the avenue of giants and was very close to the Eel River.

Bowie was really accommodating to our late late day of request to camp on his really sweet apple ranch. It was perfect for our needs and felt like being with friends from the minute we arrived. We will definitely reach out again when traveling through and need a place to crash for the night.

We really enjoyed camping underneath the Apple trees! It was super secluded in Holmes and plenty of room to spread out. Definitely worth a stay if the campsites are full. :)

We really enjoyed our stay & were able to recharge for the next day. The orchard & surrouding houses were very quiet & there was a beautiful river to walk to. Bowie & Matt both said hello & we briefly talked about the property & some of their farming practices. We had run out of food beforehand & didn’t realize how far the closest store was, so if you stay out here don’t make our mistake! We’ll definitely stay again if we’re in the area.

Beautiful location, with an amazing river swimming hole and proximity to the redwoods, and incredibly friendly & gracious hosts! Bowie and his crew were beyond welcoming and made our stay truly memorable. We will be back and highly recommend this orchard for other humboldt county campers!

Bowie was an awesome host who went out of his way to make sure we had a great time at Feisty Dog orchards. It’s the perfect spot to camp to see the redwoods, visit the lost coast, and enjoy the Humboldt vibe. We can’t wait to come back and would highly recommend to other campers.
