This site is a flat opening where a old barn once stood, it is the easiest camp site to access with the most accommodations. Enjoy expansive views of the Estero San Antonio and all of the wildlife it attracts. The walk to the bathroom is a short trip up a mowed trail. There is space for 3-4 tents tent. Enjoy the peace and quiet of this land and the singing of the birds in the nearby trees. There is parking for 3 cars.

You will have access to our pastures for picnics, leisurely walks, at your choosing. When you check in we will give you directions to a few special places on the ranch. A liability waiver will be needed to be signed.

We try to leave the land better off than we found it and hope that you will share the same respect for the pristine beauty of this place. We are 5 minutes away from the quaint town of Tomales and 10 minutes from Dillon Beach and it's incredible beach . Bring your own kayak or canoe and paddle to the ocean down the Estero San Antonio!

Beautiful wide open landscape. Good location. Easy check-in. Quite sun exposed. Bring a beach umbrella or shade structure.

We had a great experience camping here. Easy to access from the road, but felt quiet and removed. Exactly as described / pictured. Very communicative and accommodating hosts. And most important, a beautiful place to be.

Loved it! Peaceful but in proximity to lots of NorCal treasures. The views of the surrounding land are really good here. The estero that runs through the sites is a nice vibe too. Great job on all the details. Definitely don’t miss the farm stand.

Really a special little spot! Emily and Guido are very responsive and helpful as well - excellent communicators. Owl Nest has plenty of room to spread out either right by the fire pit or in a cleared spot just above, that actually improves the view a little bit. The pit itself is really a beauty as it's positioned with a natural and man made backstop to keep the heat focused and you warm. A handy water tap is right there as well. The compostable Outhouse is very, very clean and well supplied with anything you might need in there, as well as a thoughtful first aid kit. And being so close to the river, with actual moving water in it - even in August! - was really a treat. The many cows and occasional pack of horses across the water added to the visual charm the sight has in virtually every direction. Eggs and bread are AMAZING.

Wonderful ranch setting. It's magical watching the marine layer come in and out each day. We loved our stay here.

This was such a lovely experience. I loved it from the fresh steaks and eggs to the open fields. We did some biking around the area to the Marshall Store. Enjoyed a delicious lunch and wine there. Highly recommend!

This was our first camping trip as a family and we could not have picked a better location than Owl Nest. It was big, plenty of room for two large six person tents. Ground was reasonably flat and recently mowed. Fire pit was perfect for cooking and s'mores though I do recommend you bring a grate or pan to cook on if you are planning to use the fire to cook with. Location was near Dillon beach which is very family oriented and great for a relaxing day. Country setting where the stars are bright. Plenty of room though there were other campers on the property. It is a little tough to find, google maps / gps is a must but that is what camping is all about. Will definitely do again!

Great hosts, they made us a wonderful loaf of fresh focaccia bread which we paired with lamb chops straight from the farm. It was a beautiful night.

However, be sure to check for ticks!
