This site is right next to the Estero San Antonio. There is a willow and a nice lush bank to relax and read by. Easy put in for kayaks. The walk to the bathroom is a short trip up a mowed trail. There is space for 1 large tent or 2 small tents. This campsite has no running water and no fire ring, but it is by the water's edge, perfect for a camper van. Enjoy the peace and quiet of this land and the singing of the birds in the nearby trees. There is parking for 1 car or two if you are willing to wiggle.

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!

This is our second time at Guido and Emily's campsites (the first was at the adjacent Egret's Nest site), and it was as lovely and peaceful as ever. Quiet and private and w/ plenty of space for our tiny small van and a friend's tent (and her car also). We'll look forward to coming back again!

Stayed here before going on a 25 mile hike in point Reyes. Don’t be surprised if you hear a bunch of noises coming from the creek. Turns out around 10 pm, all the fish are feeding. Overall it was a pretty magical spot

Beautiful area! So peaceful and quiet. The meat from their farm stand was so amazingly tasty, we barely seasoned it and it was delicious. We happened to visit on a windy night - there were no trees or protection from the wind but we put our tent under a shade shelter we use at the beach and were nice and cozy. Also be aware that cell reception is spotty in the surrounding area. Overall, a great getaway from the city.

Loved our stay here! It was our first time camping on grassland, and to me the mowed grass felt INCREDIBLY clean?? And there were very few bugs (little roly poly boys in the grass and we saw like one wasp and a few bees, but that's it). It would be a dream spot for someone who doesn't usually like camping hahah.
I also really enjoyed picking blackberries off the brambles at the edges of the site. We didn't bring a kayak, and the water was a little too gross to enjoy in any other way, but I be it would be soooo nice to bring your boat and paddle down the estero :)
The toilet was also nicer than I was expecting for a compost toilet (though it did get full toward the end and I couldn't figure out how to change it).

Exactly as expected!

Perfect campsite. Quiet, peaceful and private. I forgot to get the bread that I ordered though 😑
Reception with ATT is spotty but available at times. Great place to refresh and be still.
Will come back again!

Couldn’t have asked for more for our one night stay heading up the coast. The site was clean, quiet and full of plant and wildlife views all around. We ordered the steak package, eggs and focaccia. It was all excellent. I wish i purchased a second focaccia for the rest of the trip.

Peaceful, tranquil area by the river. I loved watching the cows in the morning and was so impressed with the lemon thyme goats milk gelato!! The composting toilet was super clean and not smelly at all. Would love to stay here again.
