Breathe in the glorious Sonoma Coast as you make your way slowly through the tiny town of Jenner, pass the river mouth and up the mountain.  Plenty of hiking for all, as the ranch borders the world renown Jenner Headlands.

The Pole Mountain hike, averaging about 6-8 hours round trip for most people, begins just next to Highway 1, about three miles North from Jenner. As our special guests, you will have the option to enjoy a short-cut hike and be to the top in an hour or so. 

 Along with the wonderful hiking opportunities, we have kayaks and life jackets ready to go; for all day use, so you can experience the Russian River first hand.

As the stewards of this land, we invite respectful and responsible small groups and families to share it's beauty. Settle in amongst a sprinkling of beautiful Redwood, Madrone, Tan Oak, Bay and Fir. The campsite is at about 1400 ft above sea level and over looking an inspiring Russian Gulch view.

 A photographers dream awaits as dusk kicks off, often times lighting up the ripples of clouds below. Soft peachy pinks, so delectable you'll want to make sure you brought your best wine to savor it with. Now, often times we are above the fog line, though high fog belts will roll in every once in a while. 

 There are a few places to stake your tent and a nice spot to pull up a teardrop trailer or small RV.  A port-potty and propane shower are both near by the main tent site. 

Well behaved dogs are welcome; though they need to be in your car or tent at night to sleep and you will need to clean up any of their smelly messes. In the day time, they should be on a leash. Please leave barky, nervous dogs at home; as there are homes somewhat near by, though not visible at the tent site. 

Please note: the well maintained dirt road leading up to the campsite has many blind curves and extremely steep drop-offs. Good tread on car tires is important. The speed limit is 15mph.  The weather here is beautiful and can be quite fickle, bring layers.

To fully enjoy West-West County (as the locals call it) booking Friday (check in at 1pm) through Sunday morning (check out at 11am) is recommended.

For great coffee and award winning baked goods, our favorite bakery, Gold Coast is not far away, in Duncan's Mills.

There are two places to grab a bite to eat; which are right on the River:  Rivers End Restaurant and Aquatica (All Organic Menu) both in Jenner. The Jenner Gas station has a fair amount of  Natural/ Organic snacks and many essentials for camping.

Thanks for checking out our camp. 

Happy Trails & Blessings,

Carmen

What awaits you at the top of ~4 mile gravel mountain road drive is peace and quiet. I mean it. Truly quiet. We had planned on exploring the coast one day of our stay but it was so quiet and private at the site that we ended up just hanging out for the day.

Highly recommend 4-wheel or all-wheel drive for the road up/down. There are some steeper turns. We had an all-wheel drive Ford Transit camper van.

Nice backside access to Mt Pole with just a 1.5 mile hike along a fire road vs the 7.4 mile hike from the Jenner Headlands parking lot. And the views are spectacular, from ocean to hills to the snow capped mountains in the distance.

Spacious enclosed outdoor shower. Clean porta potty. And did I mention the privacy, the quiet and the views over Russian Gulch? I didn't want to leave. Thanks for sharing your space.
