Looking to get away from it all? Look no further! This place is REMOTE! The last 5 miles from Petrolia takes over 20 minutes, as it is very rugged and steep.

This quaint little campsite (The Knob) is a 16 foot, furnished bell tent perched on a little hill and tucked in the trees and faces a beautiful madrone. It has a redneck hot tub, heated by fire 100 yards away.  Bell tent is furnished with a queen bed and an ottoman that pulls out into a twin bed. Comfortably fits 3, but if you had additional guests that wanted to pitch tents, there is room for a couple more tents at this site. There is running water, a fire pit and a picnic table and its about 200 yards from the outhouse. You will definitely need 4wd or all wheel drive and 8 inches of clearance to make it up the hill. You will want to screen shot the directions, the map and the map of the property, as you will lose service before you get here and have no service here. 

You can add on private yoga or meditation sessions with certified Yoga instructor host Rachelle Lanning for $20/person to make it your own personal retreat!

Dogs are welcome! We have 2 dogs on the property that would love to meet and greet and hang out if your dogs are good with other dogs. If not, we can try to keep them away, but cannot promise they won't make a visit to your site. 

There are currently 3 camp sites on our 80 acres, one is about 100 yards away from your site.

Would happily return and recommend it to a friend. Their camping site(s) are well maintained, in the mountains, near the lost coast, and have spring-fed pottable water brought directly to your campsite with irrigation lines and a garden hoses. We played cornhole (which Ryan built for us that weekend) and horseshoes, and ate fresh veggies from their garden. The Knob faces North and is tucked away ~100-200 yards away from the platform. Its trees provide ample shade from the morning sun and provide privacy from the other sites. It takes a couple of minutes to walk between each campsite, which is also great. The 16' canvas tent was very clean - cool rug, new sheets and soft mattress pad on the queen-sized bed, a wicker basket with yoga mats, rocking chairs, a dining room table, and LED copper strings of lights inside the tent. We set up 2 additional tents and 2 hammocks on the site. The best views of the mountains are from the platform and from their house, so definitely do yoga and eat breakfast at their house. Note, we really enjoyed yoga with Rochell and veggie burritos and mimosas for breakfast. Lastly, yes, download the hand-drawn map & bring an AWD or 4x4 drive vehicle -- You'll get there, no problem.

This place really blew our hair back. Those vistas go on for days and The Lost Coast isn't too far away (on your way try to find the floating truck in the woods). Get the breakfast if you can as it was super tasty. We loved it and would 100% head back when we can. Thank you for the wonderful hospitality, recommendations for paddleboarding and hiking! Thank you guys so much and we hope to be back.

First, Ryan is wonderful! He was welcoming, kind and answered all my questions. Also since no one else had booked the outlook spot, he encouraged us to go check it out and enjoy the view from the swing bench. The view from that spot is to die for. It over looks adjacent valleys and with the costal fog flowing in between them. It’s quite the breathtaking view.
Secondly, the yurt was phenomenal. This is glamping done right. The yurt was decked out with a huge (and oh so very comfortable) bed. It was tucked in a grove of trees which gave wonderful shade from the morning sun so it was easy to sleep in if we choose to.
We also asked Ryan if we could partake In trying the “red neck” hot tub. I cannot overstate how amazing this is. He lights a fire to heat up the tub! This tub overlooks the same view as from the outlook spot. Neither of us wanted to ever leave.
On our last night, it stared to rain when we were in the yurt. The pitter patter was amazing to fall asleep to. The yurt keeps in some nice warmth and neither of us were ever cold.
Ryan is right when he recommends you need 4-wheel or all wheel drive with some clearance. I took my 4wd Toyota RAV4 and it was no problem getting to his place. The drive is worth the privacy, nature and wonderful experience.
