About Madrone Tree Hill - Group Site
Bring your family & friends so you all can camp together under the stars in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains. This 50 acre family-owned property is located in the heart of Apple Hill. There are two streams that run through it, with a hill that separates them. It is a working Christmas Trees farm that was started in the 1960's and now has many trees that are too big to fit in anyone's home, but provide an unbelievable canopy for some of our camp sites. About 1/3 of it is covered in a pine forest (with secluded camp sites) with the balance being Christmas trees, Manzanita brush, Madrone trees, and open areas for larger group campers. There are trails throughout the property for visitors to enjoy. There is an Apple Farm across the street that makes the best donuts in Apple Hill! Less than a mile away is a farm brewery and there are wineries throughout the area. There is also a large lake nearby that is a favorite for local kayak and canoe enthusiasts (and some who enjoy fishing) since most non-locals don't know it exists.
Please see the Madrone Tree Hill listing for more details on what's here and nearby!!!
Two group sites have been created for two different types of camping expediences. The first is a large open area (bring shade covers) that is on the south end of the property. It includes a large level area, a fire pit*, it's own parking area, and even has a stage if you want to get really creative! (There is an additional fee for usage of the stage - contact me for details.) The second area is at the top of the hill in the forest. This is a more tranquil site since it is amongst the pine & Madrone trees and hidden away. A campfire may be allowed, depending on the time o year and fire size. Vehicles can load & unload in this area, but will need to be parked in the parking area about 50 yards away.
A 50% non-refundable deposit is required at the time of booking.
*NOTE: Open campfires are strictly prohibited during the summer months. Warming fires may be permitted if in a fully enclose fire pit (with a mesh top) AND is in an area cleared of flammable vegetation and overhanging tree branches AND water is nearby.
Be sure to bring flashlights and lanterns, it can get pretty dark at night!
