Situated on a beautiful spot amongst oak trees in the rolling hills, this canvas bell tent can comfortably sleep 4 people. Featuring a queen size futon bed and 2 twin size air mattresses. 

The campsite includes a propane fire pit for cooking, running water for drinking and cleaning, a picnic table for dining and a beautiful hammock. Bed linens, pillows and blankets are provided with the tent. Located near the tent is a clean flushing porto potty that is shared with another campsite. 

Please note: we ask that any garbage generated during your visit be brought out with you when you leave Sindisa. 

Nearby the campsite, but separated by a gate, are the rescue ranch animals: horses, alpacas, pigs, Choctaw ponies, cows and our livestock guardian dogs. Visitors are welcome to hand feed the animals when accompanied by one of our caregivers. This seems to be everyone's favorite part of the experience. 

Throughout the day and night our ranch dog, Naya, likes to visit periodically. She's extremely friendly and loves children. Just introduce yourselves to her if she wanders over.

The swimming hole is available for cooling off between the hours of 2:00-5:00 and the Russian River Adventures in Healdsburg offers full/half day canoe rentals for a self guided river float.

Our other recommendation for river fun is Johnson's Beach in Guerneville, a scenic drive through redwoods and wineries takes you straight into town where the beach is located. They offer rentals of chairs, umbrellas, inner tubes and canoes. There is also a snack shack that serves food and beverages including beer on tap!

The site, grounds and space was exactly as described. Sarah was incredibly helpful, even supplying items I absentmindedly forgot!

The site was amazing and extremely private. We arrived late at night and found the spot easily with Sarah's help! We ate in town in Healdsburg which is just a quick drive away but we were a little bummed when we arrived because the site has a perfect set-up for grilling out on the provided propane campfire with racks and all. The site was also very sunny and bright in the morning which was amazing. It can get a little toasty so we cooled ourselves with the hose which you can access right next to your tent. As for the tent, it was set-up with everything you could need games, extra air mattress and a jug of water. It got a little chilly at night, but there is a tiny wood burning fire place in there- we just chose to use our blankets instead and stayed perfectly warm all night. In the morning we woke up and went to say hi to the alpaca, horses and fluffiest dog you ever did see named Mario and it was the perfect start to our day. Thank you for a wonderful time on your property Sarah! We will definitely be returning :)

Bell Tent was an amazing campsite. The setting is beautiful with a great view and access to trails around the magical property. They provided us with everything we needed + more -- a spacious tent with a comfortable bed, a picnic table, a fire pit/grill, a hammock, chairs, drinking water, an outlet, lanterns, etc. It exceeded all expectations! They even let us meet all of their incredible animals and gave us a little tour in the morning. Sarah was a great host! I hope to be back soon!

Great experience, private area, with nice tent and fire pit. We got some bugs around evening which got better after 9pm, make sure to take bug repellent. We got to meet their lovely animals in the morning an it was great. Highly recommended!

We stayed at this site with our five-year-old daughter. It was a wonderful place. The campsite was large, quiet, and clean. The three of us had some very comfortable family time. They gave us a tour of the property, taught us a lot about the animals in detail, and kindly answered all of our questions. We got to join them in the morning feed. There were horses, alpacas, pigs, and their dogs on the property, and everyone was very friendly. Our daughter loved this place and said she didn't want to go home. We had a hard time getting her to leave! I would highly recommend this place and be back again!

My best friend and I (mom's weekend) and our two young children stayed overnight at the Bell Tent site. It was fantastic and exceeded our expectations! Sarah and her crew have done a really amazing job setting up a really comfortable and private camp site with all the amenities you would need... gas fire pit, spigot hose with clean running water, very clean flush portable toilet, hammock, lounge chairs, solar power battery for electricity, and a covered picnic table. They even brought us a bean bag toss game for the kids to enjoy! Tent was very spacious for 2 adults and 2 kids. Super clean and the bed and air mattress were very comfortable. The only thing we would consider bringing next time would be a net or some wasp repellent because there were quite a few trying to share our tacos. We loved it all and would gladly come back here although next time we will try to get the glamp tent with the open kitchen next to the horses. The kids had a lot of fun in the swimming hole too as it was a warm and sunny day. The Bell Tent site is far enough from other sites so you have privacy but not so far that you feel like you're completely isolated. It was extremely quiet in the evening and early morning except for the occasional mooing from the cow and bull nearby. The other campers were very respectful of the rules and noise level which we appreciated. The best part was feeding the animals on Sunday morning! Wow! The kids couldn't get enough as they got to interact with the giant pigs and feed the horses and alpacas. The crew obviously cares very much for the animals and it was wonderful to see that they had a beautiful and loving place to live out their lives. The massive polar bear size dogs Nya and Mario who guard the horses and alpacas are simply adorable! This was our first time camping through Hipcamp so it was a special way to experience private camping. We will definitely be back! Thank you to Sarah and all of her staff for the amazing things they're doing at the Sindisa Sanctuary!

My girlfriend and I came up here for a weekend getaway in wine country and had an amazing trip. The Bell Tent was privately setup a little further down the road than the other tents and was extremely comfortable - and gorgeous! We cooked dinner on the gas stove (warm enough to feel like a camp fire, without the risk of fire danger). Sarah's directions were exactly as described... would highly recommend!
