Me and my boyfriend camped here with our 2 dogs for about 3 weeks. It was an amazing time for us. The community has some great people there and are very helpful. Bruce was just so nice and just so responsive.we had lunch with the commun members and it was a great experience. I loved their way off living off the land. We will definitely be back there in the spring when it warms. I really enjoyed having conversation with Nick. He is very warm and just really down to earth. They all were very warm and compassionate. If you have some time to definitely experice Cambia I would definitely do it you wont regret it. Thank you Cambia and see you soon.

Cambia Community offered a very nice and secluded campsite for a little get away feel. We chose not to participate in their community and activities, but they are very welcoming and inclusive. They have a wide range of amenities including a solar heated shower and chopped firewood.

Well maintained campsite with a hammock, fire ring and outhouse. Nearby nature trail and fun features to explore like a log teeter totter and swings. Cambia community was friendly and welcoming, even shared some fresh produce from their garden. It’s a bit of a walk from the parking area but they let us borrow a wheelbarrow to move all of our stuff. Enjoyed outlet stay.

We loved everything here! The whole stay was magical. You can tell that the community out so much effort and creativity into the forest trails! We felt overly accommodated with everything that was provided to us. I have to say, the outdoor shower was my favorite. So beautiful and serene with hot water that doesn't run out. I will say that the tree tops block out almost all moonlight, so make sure you bring bright flashlights or lanterns!

Beautiful and convenient spot of land! Everyone we met was very kind while the site is also very secluded.

Camping at Cambia was quiet and relaxing. I was given a wheelbarrow to take my equipment about 300 yards to the campsite. The site was just as described. it There was more than enough firewood to feed the fire throughout the two chilly evenings I spent there. The hammock and swing were fun extras that I enjoyed. I had no trouble putting up my tarp quickly because there were plenty of trees to tie to. The community gave me plenty of privacy. I felt safe and really enjoyed my weekend solo camping. I will definitely be back in the fall.

This camping trip was one of the best of my life! Hosts were so gracious in the most beautiful and unique space. There are trails, a mini yurt, an adventure course, hammocks, and more. Will be going back soon!

We absolutely loved our stay at Cambria Community! The spot was big and mostly private. We saw a couple people, but overall we were on our own. There are a ton of swings and such around. We spent most of our time in the hammock. The bathroom is far from private, but we honestly didn't mind, just a heads up for those it would bother. Seriously go check it out!

This is a wonderful little campsite a short walk from the parking lot on a major route. The camp has ample firewood, a hammock, a few rope swings, and plenty of great views of the surrounding hillside. There's a wooden gear table they built to set up a stove and lantern, a great fire pit near the hammock, and more. All in all, this is a perfect campsite -- definitely consider this if you're looking to spend a nice solitary time alone in nature. This small thicket of mature trees is really elegant to look at. Bruce (who walked me around to show me the site and the features of Cambia) was an excellent guide and introduced me to many of the curious oddities you'll find around here. Everyone at Cambia is friendly and greeted me as I walked around. This was a great spot to spend a weekend away.

It's no fault of the hosts, but plenty of nearby dogs howl at night -- it's not a big deal as they are far away, but it's something to note if it bothers you (it didn't bother me).
