The best camping near Northern California, California.

From Big Sur bluffs to ancient forests, there's no better place to find yourself outdoors.


The Oak Knoll Camping area has a rad geodesic structure.  Obviously that was the best spot to set up a tent and then climb all over the dome.

Oak Knoll is a spacious spot with a beautiful oak tree to camp under.
Johan and Liza's place is super close to Applegate Lake, so we took one of many turnouts along the road to dip our toes in. It was refreshing on a hot day.
Yippee!!!

If you think the best sightseeing in Northern California is the Golden Gate Bridge, it's time to grab the tent and start exploring. Camping in Northern California guarantees beautiful vistas at every turn, friendly locals, and a diverse array of camping get-ups to choose from. Cozy yurts and rustic cabins offer comfortable camping along the coast or deep in the mountains, and Northern California boasts an impressive array of private farms, vineyards, and open land. An endless patchwork of state parks and national forests let you sleep among the arboreal giants or enjoy tranquil lake camping. Whether you head north or south of the Bay Area, miles of stunning coastline offer some of the best bluff and beach camping opportunities in the country. Stunning Pacific sunsets will convince you to never leave the coast – until you remember the epic mountains waiting for you a few hours inland, that is.

Beautiful, quaint, unique!
Campfire hangout by the creek.
I love all the little touches inside the guesthouse, including this cool library ladder pulley system, the handmade shelves and the window framed with ivy.
The best hammock spot ever.

Property owner of Otter Space, Peter!
Short little hike along the Klamath.
Look closely - what do you see? Peter likes to imagine a profile view of a Native American chief. I agree. I also think it looks like a reverse Blackhawks logo.
The river is usually dried out in the summer so you can totally hike down it!
A dried out river becomes a long stretch of rocky beach.

There is definitely enough space to set up the tent off of the platform, but we thought, "why not?".
For whatever reason, pitching the tent on the platform changed the whole feel for us.  So much fun!
