Welcome to Camp Earnest!

The king tent is furnished with a king size bed w/mattress warmer and all bedding, a twin size sleeper/sofa, a low coffee table, two Turkish sitting pillows, fresh drinking water, electricity, Tibetan rugs and two ornate trunks for your things. Please be mindful not to leave any food or trash in the tent, as local critters could invade.

Once settled, it's a short walk down Stair Trail to the bathhouse. There is a beautiful path from the main field along the creek, with waterfalls and swim spots, or a full 5.5 mile loop through Gold Rush country. You'll have use of our new Cedar Bathhouse, including a sauna and cold plunge, 3 toilets, 2 showers and sinks.  Yes, our sauna is now fully operational, and our large cedar hot tub should be working by September, 2021.

By September, 2021, we hope to boast a small outdoor kitchen for campers as well. The campus has many other picnic areas and fire pits where you're welcome to meet other guests. We host chef prepared family style feasts through GP Dinners and occasional acoustic concerts in our outdoor amphitheater. Contact the hosts if food and music are your thing.

We really enjoyed our stay in the King Tent, it had everything we needed and it was comfortable. Bathrooms were really nice and we really enjoyed the sauna.

Karin and Raman are consumate hosts who truly care that their guests have the best experience possible during their stay. They both have a welcoming warmth which ensures you do not leave a stranger. Tashi, the dog, is an added bonus! This camp is magical and I highly recommend it to other travelers.

Our stay was amazing! The bath house was very clean and the area was well maintained. Karin responded quickly to any questions we had and was very sweet - she brought over a portable table when she saw us using the deck area as one. Overall our experience was made very pleasant and would definitely recommend this spot!

We had a lovely stay at the King Tent with our 2 year old child! The bed was comfortable. Drinking water, tea, coffee, a hot water kettle, towels, a fan, and a bin for storing garbage and food were all provided. We enjoyed most of our time on the "patio" with the tent doors wide open—our child going in and out to play. We brought a cooler and food and a cooking stove to make dinner and breakfast on the patio. We also brought a little camping shower which was clutch to stay cool with the very warm weather. At night we saw a shooting star :) The property was beautiful, quiet, and secluded—it just has a really positive energy. It's close enough for a day trip to Pinecrest lake and other water sources and trailheads. The experience was a perfect balance between tent camping and an AirBnb. We will definitely be coming back and telling friends about it.

Lovely to spend time on the porchExploring the property around the acoustic amphitheaterExploring the property around the acoustic amphitheater

Really beautiful place! We would definitely come back in the cooler season. I think this camp would be ideal for the spring - winter but even with the hot weather we had a great time and out hosts were super helpful abs friendly :)

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Amazing hosts, lovely property and clean accommodations. Also the tent was perfectly comfortable in temperature, mattress and setup. Next time we would stay longer to explore more of the area as it is so close to so much wonderful nature!

Lovely hosts. A wonderful space to invite your friends, family, or going by yourself and/or taking your partner. The cedar bath house and sauna was our favorite. It gets pretty warm during July, but it cools down nicely in the evenings.
