Anahata Lake is a nice choice for a low-key, relaxed Hipcamp not far from the quaint downtown district of Murphys, California.
During our stay at Anahata Lake, my husband and I pitched our tent on site #1-- near the provided raised platform and picnic table. The camping plot was clean and easily accessed from the road. The main house on the property was adjacent to the campsite, and an outdoor
outhouse and shower, and an indoor composting toilet were conveniently accessible.
The grounds of Anahata Lake are open and pleasant. There is room to stretch out and enjoy; a garden swing and platform deck are perfect for enjoying the views of the pond, and the local wildlife that visit it. During our visit, my husband and I spotted a rafter of turkeys and a flock of geese making good use of the remaining water to cool off. A record heat wave in the hottest, driest days of summer had significantly lowered the water-level of this lovely oasis, but, in spite
of this, the pond was still a picturesque feature of the property (especially near sunset). At night, the property was serene, quiet, and peaceful. For a tranquil, secure location in modest driving proximity to the wineries and amenities of nearby Murphys, Anahata Lake is a nice spot. We enjoyed our time here.

They are great people and kind but the add was extremely misleading, there was nothing but stickers, dirt, and a bug infested pond.. when we returned from our trip to the caverns they had moved our camping gear around & broke my 150$ pop up canopy

Response from Chris, the Host, on July 16th, 2022

Our pond is mostly dried up because of the drought this year and we did inform the campers in advance of this fact, allowing them the chance to cancel if they wanted to. We did not move the canopy, we would never go near the campsite, and in fact we were out of town when this happened. It does get windy at times, like anywhere in the Sierra foothills, and there are animals around, like at any campground in the mountains.
