About Camp Midgard - Wine Country
Pitch your tent off Calistoga Rd. connecting Sonoma with Napa, and you'll have perfect access to the two best wine areas in the country.
With 46 acres of unspoiled nature you will be in a rural and private setting, but you are still only 7 minutes drive from supermarkets, The views of the vineyards and the mountains separating Sonoma from Napa are stunning and if you are into hiking there are "trails" ranging from easy to down right exhausting. There is a small spring fed pond if you feel like a (cold) swim in the morning. We are continually improving the land and adding amenities, so reach out to us for details or special requirements.
Just added a big water tank up close to the sites, and a POWER STATION where you can charge your devices, camp lights and other gadgets.
Some times we do wine tastings or other fun events.
The designated sites are set up for your convenient access to communal cooking and toilet facilities. A few campers have requested more privacy on busy weekends, so feel free to reach out if you would prefer to set up at another spot. We will always try to accommodate your wishes if at all possible.
NOTICE: NO FIRES !!!
Open fires are a strict no no, as the whole county is prone to wildfires, and CalFire has issued warnings of high fire risk this season. We know camp fires are cozy, but if this is important to you, please seek out the county park camp sites that allow it.
Be aware that we no longer allow 4WDs to drive up to the sites after too many complaints by other campers. Everybody parks at the gate and walk up. If you have massive equipment or trouble walking, we will try to give you a ride up in our Jeep, on a case-by-case basis.

The vibe at Camp Midgard - Wine Country
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
I had an awesome stay at Odin Wines! I ended up arriving later then expected but was able to briefly meet Henrik to be shown the way to the camp. The hike up the hill to the camp was a challenge in the dark but in the morning was proven to be well worth it! The camp area is in up the hill in the meadows but still overlooks the surrounding Santa Rosa hills. The viewing patio is an awesome area to relax and have a meal while looking out to the hills and the farm across the street. You're surrounded by lush green everywhere. If you choose to stay in the safari tent, you'll be hooked up with all the tech to power your devices and keep you entertained. This would be a good option if you're looking for a work space in a quiet and tranquil outdoor environment. I wasn't abel to stick around for one of Henrik's wine tastings but I hear it's a blast! I highly recommend staying here if you're looking for a weekend getaway in wine country hills.
Camp Midgard, and especially Henrik and family were all wonderful. The property was beautiful, close to Calistoga road but tucked away. The campsites themselves were all far enough away from each other to contribute to a feeling of privacy. The shared cooking area was comfortable and Henrik brought up a new tank of propane so we could enjoy a little "fire" in an environmentally-safe way. 5 stars for hospitality and a lovely stay (even though we were "lucky" enough to pick a rainy weekend to camp). I would note for future campers that at our site (site 4) it was difficult to find truly level ground so we slid around a little bit in our sleeping bags. A bit more hunting around our site or picking a different designated site altogether would have probably served us well.
This is an absolutely beautiful property. The camp sites are huge and secluded. We decided to ditch the tent and sleep under the Milky Way, which provided quite a show, with shooting stars every couple of minutes. We had the entire place to ourselves. Do heed the warning about packing only what you can carry, as it is kind of a haul up the hill from your car.
There were only a couple of flaws. First, and most important, was the lack of a water source. I brought a water filter, anticipating a fresh water spring, but no spring was to be found. Neither was the storage tank that was described on the Hipcamp site. We had to walk back down to the house to use the hose and carry the water back up the hill. The other flaw was that the paths to the sites were overgrown with goats' head prickers, which are brutal to walk over and/or through. A mowing is in order.
Otherwise, I would happily return to, and recommend this spot, for some real serenity and natural beauty in the wine country.
Henrik and family were great hosts! The land behind their house has been groomed to create a handful of sites each with a beautiful view of the surrounding mountains. We were in site 5, which I'd recommend, as it is closest to both the pond and the communal cooking/fire pit zone. Plenty of dense woods to explore right by your tent. Henrik was also super helpful with winery recommendations and other suggestions for the area. If you have a 4x4 and are comfortable off-roading it's worth asking if you can drive up directly to your site. A huge help! Thanks for having us.
Great spot! Pretty serious hill to clamber up, so wouldn't plan on more than one trip from your car. Very possible to seek out privacy (I think we may have been only guests?) and the hosts were super friendly. Was s bit uncertain about where (if any?) the toilets may have been.
We didn't explore too much of the property but it was really nice (views!) and a quick ride from Santa Rosa.
Great piece of land!
Gracious hosts and a beautiful place.
We over-packed for our stay, so we had many climbs up and down the path to/from our site. Would recommend to pack light if possible!
We stayed in site 3, which felt sufficiently isolated from the rest of the sites.
Only one minor complaint: there are no fires allowed, even though the amenities list includes it. There is a single propane "fire pit", but it was not what we were expecting.
Would definitely recommend!
We loved it. Great location, beautiful setting. The trek from the parking to the campsite is uphill so pack light! You want to get up easily in one trip. We stayed one night and didn't need extra services but just make sure you plan ahead if you do and check in advance with Heinrick. He gave us a large bottle of water which was very helpful.
