Wooded Glade Solitude is set back in a pine forest, with Oak, large Madrones and some Manzanita around a small meadow. In early spring, the meadow is soggy, so touch base with us before reserving! Up to 50 people will fit in this glade, cozy, snug and private, but we like to camp alone with our own mind for company too. Perfect for people who love unprocessed nature and solitude.
Wooded Glade is 45 minutes of dirt road from 101, then some more dirt path from our main access road. The last bit of dirt pathway to site *might* be passable by a regular car when it's dry, but we strongly recommend AWD. 4WD or quads required during rainy season. There might be ruts. Advanced arrangements can be made to 4wd your gear in for you if needed.
This is wild land still!! Some of the last wild land left in the world, unpolished and sometimes mischievous with actual bugs and burrs in late summer or mud in winter. There might even be wild bees or predators like bear or fox. Put tick preventative on your dogs and good tires on your vehicle 'cause you're going somewhere out of the ordinary. If you want the experience of a manicured state park with paved roads and a visible camp-neighbor blasting their radio 24/7, we can suggest other places that you might like. To each their own and more power to you. This is not that. People have asked, so Yes, this site is remote from city lights and outside light pollution. It's likely as good as you'll get locally for night-skies and telescope-enthusiasts. Also, yes, we are LGBQT friendly and have friend-family who live their lives very freely in ways different from our own. We love and accept them all. You are welcome here.
A private road leads to the Eel River for swimming and exploring. The access is exclusive to our ranch. We suggest you wear river shoes when you go, but it's only a suggestion. AWD and high clearances required. We're serious about the AWD. No, we don't need more cars stuck down by the river, although there was this one lady who got her Toyota Celica down and back up again. We're not sure how she did it and don't recommend you try it. If you're a marathoner accustomed to hills, then yes, feel free to walk it. Your own mountain bikes, quads and ATVs are always welcome.
We'll be a mile below the site (out of sight and earshot) and can facilitate firewood so long as a burning-ban is not in effect. It is potentially possible to visit a legal cannabis farm or have a heritage-breed pig roast during your stay, with prior arrangement. Try the pig. It's freaking delicious.
We're happy to say there is no wifi. Verizon or US Cellular *might* get signal.
Prepare to detach from the world.

The vibe at Wooded Glade Solitude
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
This was an incredibly magical weekend for my fiancé and I. Heidi is awesome and instantly made us feel welcomed. We got lost on the way up and Heidi was so patient in guiding us where to go. What an outstanding place to be! We were absolutely removed from the world for two blissful nights. No cell signals, nothing but nature, our dogs, and one another. We will definitely be back and being friends next time! It is very remote and true nature. While we didn’t see any animals (our dogs had bear bells on) the dogs let us know when something was nearby. It was so green and picturesque. You definitely need a four wheel drive vehicle and it’s worth the trek. We can’t thank you enough, Heidi! See you again in 2019!
