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 outdoor community kitchen and fire ring is available for use, complete with refrigeration, triple sink with running water and plenty of dishes to use.  Outdoor shower with hot water and great pressure, as well as an outdoor claw-foot bath tub in the woods, clean well water 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 these folks come from all over the US and abroad.

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.

Brenda has made a special place in a georgious valley.
To watch the stars at night is amazing.
There is little shade but the good news is that the nights were not cold and you can sit outside.

My stay with Brenda at the Golden Rocks Permaculture Farm was a wonderful first experience with Hipcamp! There are several camping sites to stay on within the field, some have shady oaks and others have beautiful morning sunrise views over the fields to the mountains. I had any option of several since I was the only camper midweek. Outdoor compost toilet is close enough, but not too close, and a shower in the house was made available to me.
The other humans for interaction are very pleasant, friendly and eager to accommodate, including a very cool WWOOFer, Thomas, who will be on site all season... Brenda, the host, is an absolute doll and very easy to communicate with, she feels like an easygoing old friend immediately .. .she even offered to take me on a private walking tour of the permaculture farm, the highlight for me was the absolutely epic Cobb buildings! Including a huge one made of Pallets/Cobb with outstanding artistry detail work and another under construction and shaped like a shoe, made entirely with cobb. These structures are a must sees for any natural home materials enthusiasts like me!

I hope to return for another visit if my roadtrip brings me back through northern California! Maybe even for an intensive womens cobb workshop, if the timing is right...

BTW Brenda also makes all natural body butters, salves and massage oils. She gave me a good deal on the "Better Bones" salve and literally it has become the most effective beauty ointment and muscle relaxant I've ever tried, not to mention the best smelling too!

I am so happy I found this hipcamp experience, it definitely set the bar high for future experiences though!
