What a beautiful spot -- super peaceful, private and quiet. Comfortable bed and great bird-watching from the Adirondack chairs

View of the meadow. So peaceful.A mule deer greeted us each morning

The Green Thumb was AMAZING! The hosts are kind and friendly. It's obvious how much they care for their campers with all the details they've thought of.

The camper at the site includes dishes, pots and pans, a stove, and much more! A full, and heated, solar shower was laid out for us upon arrival. They filled a pitcher with drinking water too! Coal was included with the grill available. The porta-potty was much appreciated.

I can't begin to describe how all of these details made our stay so pleasant. The trailer itself was so cozy. We didn't sleep in it - because our cat and two dogs are traveling with us. With cat allergies being so prevalent, we popped up our tent for our whole fur family to sleep in and used the trailer as a sweet living/cooking space free from cat dander. Setting up a tent was so easy at this site!

Now for the view - we were in awe. We didn't even venture into the hiking spots all around. The view from the site was so epic. We just laid back, took it real easy, and enjoyed The Green Thumb thoroughly.

Thanks so much for having us!!

We had plenty of room to park and pitch a tent next to the awesome and well-equipped trailer.The dogs loved it. We really enjoyed the light morning rain that keeps everything so green. We couldn't have asked for more! Super cool.The view from our site was stunning, so peaceful.

Nice little meadow spot for kicking back for the weekend. There are other homes along the road in, so it wasn't silent, but watching the deer in the evening and falling asleep to the sound of the little brook was lovely. We checked ourselves in and out, which is just the way we like it, but Brad stayed in touch and I'm sure would have responded quickly had we needed anything. Love Humboldt and would definitely go back!

We set up camp at the very back of the meadow but would opt for a slightly different spot next time - we were blocking the deer's normal access to the meadow. 😊
