MUST BE QUIET no exploring ranch, STRICT in after 6:30PM out by 8AM. DO not disturb retreat guests or neighbors. No dogs preferred (we have free roaming dogs AND horses) - but if you have to bring your pup keep on leash and clean up after them. No trace behind camping!THIS CAMP is purely a place to park sleep and cruise, it’s not a camp ground per se, e.g. NO FIRES, cooktop ok.
Please check our availably on the calendar on the righthand side of this page before contacting me directly. :)PARK N SURF #1 has a better view, more space and privacy. If available, I recommend it. PARK N SURF #2 is along side an inner ranch road and a car or two may pass by from other camp. Both sites are exposed to sweet free roaming horses. Cheers!

The vibe at #2 PARK N SURF
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
Perfect spot for a private pit stop and an adventure regardless of the short stay. Especially if you’re passing through on Highway 1. Our favorite part might even have been the treasure hunt to find our campsite on their beautiful land thanks to Montrese’s perfectly detailed, wonderfully quirky instructions. We stayed at site #1 and would recommend it if you have the choice between #1 and #2 (it’s slightly larger and has a view of the ocean). Head to the lighthouse in the morning to look out for elephant seals and migrating whales!
The description is accurate, and everything went super smooth. However, you have to realize that it's really a place to spend the night and leave, and it's very basic. It's no problem if you arrive late (the directions will get you there, they worked well for us in pitch black).
But if you need a place to stay in the Bay area, and don't mind basic camping, it's a very fun and adventurous experience.
Although this is more of just an overnight, in and out in 12 hours kind of site, it was still magical, based on the fact that Montrese is providing an amazing service to rescue horses. There are many rules to follow to insure the safety of the horses, but it was worth every word we had to read on the directions. I appreciated knowing that this kind of place exists and that I had the opportunity to be a part of it. I would have never known about it, but because of hipcamp and Montrese's willingness to host people on her land, I got to experience it for myself and share it with others. If you are willing just to have a place to overnight, I would recommend this place 100%. having to leave by 8AM got us on our way, too, so that was a helpful side bonus!!
