Nestled between the chaparral wilderness and majestic Mount Konocti, our 35-acre organic farm boasts many species of plants and wildlife. Expect a hot, shimmering summer in Lake County- luckily, we have lots of shade! Whether it's under an apple, walnut, or oak tree, there are many good reading and resting spots which are sure to help to help you relax and recharge on your visit to our mellow farm. We are a working farm with farmer neighbors, so we do have reasonable quiet hours after 10pm in order for everyone to rest.
We have 2 rustic outdoor showers and a simple communal kitchen with dishware, silverware, and pots and pans. We welcome you to wander our gardens, overlook the vineyard at sunset with a bottle of wine, and enjoy the many birds, lizards, and other wildlife who call this place home. If you are a light sleeper, bring earplugs- those birds wake up early!
Use our farm as a base camp to explore Clear Lake, the oldest lake in North America and the largest natural lake in California. Other nearby attractions include the popular, free swimming spot Blue Lakes, hundreds of local geocaches, and many hiking trails in the largely unspoiled nature of Lake County. We are 35 minutes away from Harbin Hot Springs, the famous clothing-optional hot springs and retreat center, which also has icy cold plunges and a swimming pool.
Suggested things to bring: sunscreen, hat, ear plugs, tent stakes (it can get alarmingly windy once in a while!), a couple gallons of water for personal use, trash bag to pack out trash, love of lizards, hammock if you've got one (let us know and we'll try to set you up with a hammock-friendly site).

Lovely farm camping experience
Very nice stay surrounded by fruit trees and chickens. The hosts are sweet people and helped with advice of the surrounding area and generally great to talk to. The farm is right at the base of a beautiful volcanic mountain and very close to activities at the lake, or take a stroll through acres of a working vineyard
The facilities are quite nice - the outdoor shower was a favorite of the fam - and the communal kitchen in the barn really exemplified HIPCAMP!
The only note for those who are sensitive to noise - you can hear frequent cars on the road in front at all hours - if you do not want any vehicle noise this may be an issue - if it doesn’t bother you - than this is a great place to stay.
