Rainbow's End Farm is in a lush redwood forest setting, one mile from the charming town of Occidental in the heart of West Sonoma County. From your campsite you have private hiking access to a majestic redwood grove (part of 20-acre redwood forest preserve). Relax in nature while only being minutes from gourmet restaurants, grocery stores, and shopping, as well as 20 minutes to Bodega Bay and Hwy 1.

RAINBOW'S END FARM

The permaculture farm has several historic barns and is home to many happy animals: goats, chickens, and ducks, and is full of lush berries, apples, plums and more. To book a tour of the farm, a guided medicinal plant walk, or inquire about classes (such as how to make jam and essential oils) please contact us in advance.

HISTORY

1917 - 1930: The yellow farmhouse and three historic red barns were built from Redwood Trees on the land. The farm had a large vineyard that was plowed under by the local Sheriff during prohibition.

1940 - 1950: The farm featured the largest cherry orchard in Sonoma County. Cherry blight in the 1960's killed most of the trees (too much morning fog).

1950 - 1960: The land served as a cattle ranch and Apple orchard.

1970: A group purchased the land to build "Esalen North" and host interpersonal growth workshops. A legendary Herbal Gathering, of some of the countries leading medicinal plant experts (founders of Traditional Medicinals and Celestial Seasonings), was held at this time.

1975: Don and Nan purchased the land and established a home-birthing clinic in the red barn at bottom of parking lot (make sure to look for the historic stained glass of baby in utero). In the ensuing decade, over 1,200 home births are attended to in Sonoma County and thousands of moms and babies are seen at the farm clinic.

2000: Nan retires from midwifery and devotes all of her energy to permaculture farming selling her farm products (jams, herbs, fresh fruit etc.) at local farmers markets.

Great spot. #3 is nice and large with a big fire pit. I would if you have more than a couple people I would definitely recommend that spot. The directions were easy to follow and all the signage was clear and helpful. The running water near the toilet was a nice added feature.

Please note that there is a short walk to the site and the parking lot isn’t flat so I’d bring my tent and not plan to sleep in the car!

Haven't been camping in a while and this place was perfect. Great area and was perfect weekend because we had the area to ourselves.

Fantastic Stay for my daughers Birthday.

Nan's story alone was worth it! Love the history of the place and the unique story. Would have loved to actually meet her!

We booked all 5 sites with 5 families and enjoyed a fantastic time.
The hike through the redwoods was amazing and just right for the 10 kids that we had.
The only issue was that another camper did not leave site 5 so we have to double up - but Josh, Nan's son, took care of this and refunded me for that site.
We will be back!
Thanks
Tom

Magical space

My boyfriend and I stayed for one night and it was magical. The campsites are spaced out nicely with a hammock, stack of wood, rack for the fire pit, benches, a table and room for 2 tents. The site was private and east to get to. The port a potty was very close and clean. So grateful for this space and the care put into it. 100% recommended.
