We were tucked away in the woods with great amenities... bathroom included. There is a beautiful tree on the campsite that made the whole experience magical. And my pup was free to run and around and bring me sticks. I will definitely come back again!"

Site 1 - Baby Banana Slug Farm
This site was great, providing a nice and quiet redwood oasis. Site 1 has a large, charred shell of a redwood at the center of it that is large enough to crawl into, but do so with caution - it’s full of spider webs. Camped in the fall and it rained at night, got a little chilly but the plus side is the land was so verdant and there were at least 15 species of fungi and lichen! pretty cool for a plant nerd. Nate was incredibly kind, we had running water at the campsite, and a nice lil vault toilet. We attempted to make a fire in the pit but our firewood was just too damp. I’ll definitely be staying here again.

The sites are exactly as described, except there was a table at site 2 now, so that was good to have. The wood delivery was definitely all you could need. Extremely quiet even with residences in sight. It is located about 10 minutes drive to Hwy. 1. There was no one at the other site so not sure how that would have changed our experience.

Peaceful Campsite
I had a great time camping at Baby Banana Slug Farm. It was easy to drive right up to the spot (campsite 1), and I loved having my own sink and outhouse close to the site! Even though it felt like it, here you are definitely not "in the middle of the woods" -- there are neighboring properties within earshot of the campsite. That wasn't a problem for me because I was solo and wanted complete quiet, but consider that if you plan on being in a group! Best to keep the noise to a minimum. I met Nathan the second night I was staying there, and he was a pleasant guy to talk to! Told me about the local area and nature, and made sure I had what I needed. After that he gave me total privacy which was great. All and all, I highly recommend this spot for camping whether solo or in a small group. Just remember to respect the space and people around it!

Camping with the slugs!
Great campsite in the middle of the redwoods! Definitely lives up to the campsite’s name… it was great to be around the banana slugs! Cool composting put toilet that was clean. Outdoor sinks with potable water for teeth brushing and dishwashing. Large space to spread out, very quiet, and plenty of privacy. About a 10-15 minute drive to the town of Mendocino and about a 30 minute drive to Fort Bragg. Plenty of natural features to enjoy in the area and a lot to explore.

We loved it! There were so many slug friends to share our time with! I enjoyed being able to cook our meals on the grill, always better over a fire. The beach is only a short drive away and there is a local grocery store for last minute essentials. Thank you Nathan for hosting your beautiful land!

We really enjoyed camping at the baby banana slug farm! The campsite was beautiful, clean, and included a sink, a decent bathroom, and a fire pit. We purchased the firewood ahead of time and it was so worth it. Nathan dropped it off before we arrived and covered it with a tarp so it would stay dry. We never actually saw a baby banana slug, but perhaps it was the wrong time of year?

Redwood forest, quiet, private
Beautiful forest setting, tall redwoods, plus some eerie, picturesque, burned-out stumps that added mystique to the place. Very quiet at night; we could hear the waves and foghorn if the wind was blowing our way. And yes! banana slugs, both mornings! Host Nathan greeted us for a quick tour, then left us alone. Site #1 is fairly far away from main house, feels private. Each site has their own sink and pit toilet.

Family camping among the redwoods
Stayed at site 1. Beautiful space in the middle of some redwoods. Great set up for families with a sink with running water, an outhouse, a platform for a tent, and a large picnic table. Enough space for 2 tents. There’s a fire pit(ish) with firewood. Just bring some cash in small bills to leave for the wood. Very close to mendocino and some good hikes.

The space was nice but is smaller than they advertise and it’s close to the host’s home. Our group of 3 was sitting around the fire (host provides wood if you pay) chatting at a respectful volume and the host approached unannounced when it got dark and told us that we were being disrespectful. We moved to whispering and didn’t have any problems going forward, but that’s a major issue.

Very sad to have just left Baby Banana Slug Farm. Perfect campsite (site 1) with all the amenities—even a sink!—in the most beautiful redwoods. We loved the location as well, nestled in the trees but very close to the beach & Mendocino. We will be coming back!

Baby Banana Slug Farm was spectacular. My boyfriend and I stayed at camp #1, and it was everything we hoped for. Our privacy was well respected, and the space itself was the beautiful getaway that we needed. Nathan came down to supply the firewood, and was been helpful and communicative. We would love to come back sometime!

Kids and Banana Slugs
This was a great spot for my family. My two children 6/8 had the time of their lives running around the site. They hug out in the large hollowed tree and tried to find banana slugs daily. The sink, outhouse and fire pit were awesome. Thank you to Nathan for coming and saying hello and allowing us to stay on your land!

My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed our time at the baby banana slug property! The sink and outhouse were clean and greatly added to our experience. The property was beautiful, and Nate was helpful in checking in on us to make sure we had enough firewood. The property was easy to get to and the directions were clear.

Nathan is a terrific host and his Hipcamp was exactly what I was looking for - surrounded by beautiful redwood trees, private, and fully immersed in nature. Campfires are allowed and each site has its own bathroom/sink, which are huge bonuses. I would definitely come back here again.

This is a real fun spot. Enjoyable to catch the slugs and being surrounded by trees. Helpful platform as well at site 1 to pitch a tent nice and level!

Gorgeous land with very spacious camping area. We stayed in campsite #1 - there was enough room for multiple tents and felt secluded from the other campsite. There was running water, small bathroom, and a fire pit (option to have fire wood delivered.) Highly recommend

Camping with the slugs
Nathan’s campsite is lovely! We stayed at site #1 and loved how secluded it was. The big redwoods all around were so beautiful! You’ll have everything you need for a comfy stay - outhouse, running water, fire pit, and lots of banana slugs. There is a neighbor dog that might bark at you a bit, but he gave up pretty quickly. Directions through Google Maps were easy.

We had a perfect stay! The camp site has a sink, very clean out house, hose, fire pit and table. It has a few options for flat tent spots. It was private and very quiet, we didn’t see anyone other than the owner walking to check that we were settled in. Beautiful trees, and we only saw one slug. We will definitely be back!

We really enjoyed camping here! The campsite was secluded and well maintained. The hosts (Nathan and his daughter) were very welcoming and prompt in responding to our texts. They even provided us with a lot of firewood, at a nominal cost. Couldn’t have asked for more! Definitely recommend this place and plan on coming back here some day.

Magical campsite
Such a magical place! Shilea welcomed us and gave us local hiking recommendations. If you want to see banana slugs you will not be disappointed. Facilities were great. I recommend campsite 1 with the large hallow tree. There is a nice picnic table.
