Lisa was lovely and the site was as well. It's an organic farm; the campsite I stayed at was near the aviary so I loved waking up at 6:30am to the birds. You might not. The campsite had a picnic table and a flat sandy surface (perfect for tent stakes). It didn't feel too foresty - more like a KOA or something - but it was still serene. I liked saying hi to the birds and horses, but unfortunately didn't get to see the goats.

Lisa was around and helpful (see below) but was completely unobtrusive.

Now - the bathroom and shower. First, it's shared with at least one other site, which was fine - but the bathroom is so close to the campsite you don't really have privacy as you're in total view when other folks are going to and from the bathroom. The flush toilet, with TP, worked great, as did the sink. It's in an outhouse of sorts that has a lock. Best bathroom I've ever used while camping.

Second, though, the hot water did not work. I was OK with a cold shower since I don't really count on luxury while camping, but that was still unfortunate. Lisa and fam came and attempted to fix the shower immediately, as it had been working last they'd checked - so this isn't a knock on them at all. They seemed to fix it, but when I had a shower the next morning it got slightly warm, but that was it. They responded to that too and I'm sure they've fixed it by now. Lisa was super responsive to any of my needs.

The site is basically across the street from Henry Cowell Redwood Park, so location was wonderful. Also very close to the cute little town of Felton, and only 30 minutes to Santa Cruz, or slightly less-populated beaches towards Davenport.

Thanks so much Abeni for the review. You were our first camper to stay at the site and very helpful! We’ve since fiddled with the shower enough that we’ve got hot water, it’s on demand hot water heater and we just needed to turn it up higher. I’m sorry we didn’t get it all figured out before you came. We literally finished the campground and listed it the same day you booked. Also we installed a little privacy shade at the picnic table, but thanks for the comments we will see if we can make it a little more private from the bathroom if possible. Hope you will come back soon!

The campsite was lovely, nicely shaded, and clean. We enjoyed chatting with the other guests, and saying hi to the chickens. Also, having the bathroom and hot shower just a few paces away from the campsite was great. We didn't experience any problems with the hot water, so the issue mentioned by the other review was likely resolved.

This is such a great little spot in a beautiful town that I didn't really have enough time to explore. It's right across from the park and close to everything else you need. The hosts are amazing sweet people who genuinely love hosting and consider every detail. I'm definitely going back when I can. The pottery studio is a must for anyone who is even vaguely interested.
