Our campground overlooks a beautiful valley and the Berriessa Ridge Mountains..  There are camping decks as well as cushy camping spots directly on the ground for those who want to "ground."  The campground has stunning views towards the east—mountains with a sweeping valley view in the foreground from pretty much every camping spot.  Outrageously great sunrises and sunsets, as well as moonrises!  Great place to watch meteor showers!!

The camp fire area comes complete with seating and firewood!  Grill and camp stove, including propane gas, are available for use year-round.

The outdoor community kitchen is available for use 24/7, and relaxing at the community campfire is a fantastic way to meet other travelers and compare stories over a cold beer or glass of local wine.  The kitchen is complete with a gas stove and small table, a shared refrigerator/freezer, triple sink with running water and plenty of dishes, pots, pans and utensils to use.  So much more than your average campground!!

FRESH WATER is provided from local springs!  Hydrate up with the best-tasting natural spring water known to mankind! :)

Fun outdoor shower with unlimited (on-demand) hot water and great water pressure, as well as an outdoor claw-foot bath tub in the woods are available for guests.  The farm's well water runs through house and gardens, with NO CHEMICALS ADDED!  Lovely if you are used to city water with chlorine. 

Community Farmhouse has access from 8am to 9pm for wifi, showers and bath, reading library, and just hanging out by the fireplace or swamp cooler.  Generally there are guests and volunteers year-round, which makes for interesting visits since folks come to visit from all over the US and abroad. You never know who you might meet here!

This is a working permaculture farm and you will encounter chickens, beautiful gardens, and interesting projects in progress, including several sculpted cob structures and a small pallet house made from award-winning design plans, and coated with gorgeous earthen plaster over cob.

If you're coming in to camp for the weekend, you might catch us at the Middletown Community Farmers' Market selling our goods June thru September on Friday nights!  Otherwise, we sell gorgeous, free-range organic chicken eggs (laid by chickens who might be visiting you while you're frying eggs!).  We also offer lots of herbs, seasonal veggies and fruits, and a fantastic selection of other farm products, including teas, tinctures, and all sorts of holistic products.

Had such a lovely time at Golden Rocks Permaculture Farm. I came alone but made friends with those volunteering at the farm. There was an outdoor kitchen available for use, with a stove, pans, silverware, dishes, sink, etc. Super nice!! For anyone who hates going shopping before their camping trip, don't! You can buy produce and eggs for cooking here at Golden Rocks, you can also get wonderful flower here at great prices as well! Support your local farmers :)

The campground has an outhouse and it is so cute and NICE! I love the moon and star carved out in the door, so cute. There is an outdoor shower with hot water available for your use as well, it was super cool. If you're adventurous, fill up the bathtub and take you a nice bath out here in nature.

There are some cool cob houses that Brenda and other volunteers have made and they are beautiful to look at - check them out while you're here.

The surrounding area also has lots of opportunities for kayaking, swimming, biking, and hiking - be sure to ask Brenda or one of the other volunteers for recommendations! It's also a 420 friendly place, come have a good time at Golden Rocks!!

Quiet and pretty. My kids loved the chickens. We went to a creeak (we drove to it) and had a great day, and camping was easy. The camp kitchen was nice. Though, I'd still bring some dishes and cups next time. Very relaxed life

A really wonderful weekend-- Brenda not only a gracious host but also radical farmer, who's knowledge and love for the land was inspirational! The communal kitchen and fire led to conversation with other campers, and the spot is well situated for hiking, hot springs, and the lovely Middletown.

We spent a great weekend at Brenda's farm. It was easy to find, and the wooden platforms add an extra bit of comfort. The communal fire pit made for lively evenings with other campers and the outdoor kitchen is well appointed. The outhouse is easily accessible and always clean. We bought fresh eggs for breakfast directly from Brenda in the morning. Lots of great activities in the surrounding area. We will definitely be back!
