We had an incredible New Year’s Eve at the Tipis! We were welcomed by Marie and her pack of 5 Australian Blue Heelers. She gave us a tour of the property which includes 4 tipis, outhouse bathroom, an abandoned boat turned into a nap spot, a secluded hammock spot, a pen with sheep and two ostriches.

After moving our stuff into the tipis, we went for a sunset walk with Marie and her dogs in a dried up river basin only a 5 minute walk from the campsite. It was a beautiful experience!

We spent the night grilling on the provided propane grill and enjoying the full moon.

Wonderful people and a beautiful, unique spot. I would recommend this spot for anyone that wants an easy, cozy, comfortable and inviting camping experience!

Be prepared to meet some of the happiest dogs on the planet! Heads up if you're allergic. Also, our host provided some firewood, which was great! Bring your own for extra fire time if you want it. It was stunning at night with glowing tipis and stars!

We had the most magical time staying here and the moments spent with the host was beyond special. We learnt about the Chumash way of life, several ancient songs from the host - an experience our family truly treasured and will never forget. Thank you Thomas - we will be back!
