Ravens Landing is a unique piece of property. Saddled in between two big mountains, it sits on top of a valley with breathtaking views. Ravens Landing burnt down in 2015 and since then, I and many friends and artists have been rebuilding using recycled lumber and various objects that survived the fires. Today I am so humbly proud to facilitate a space for artists, musicians, nature lovers, off the grid fanatics and more! We love being inspired and inspiring so please come for a visit and leave some of your own inspiration behind.  We are an off-grid forever building artist community. We love living free and healthy and eating fresh from our gardens. Come explore the beautiful oak and manzanita forests. Relax and take in the fresh air. Spend quality time with our animals, drive off to the cold running creek, or create a piece of art to leave behind for others to enjoy. This is our Home, so please visit with an open mind, open heart, and most of all Respect. Everyone is always welcome here.  Please remember Kids are considered guests here so please include them when you reserve the number of people in your party. KID POLICY: *Must keep an eye on your children at all times. You are responsible for them! *Must arrive 2hrs before dark so you and your children can get acclimated here. *Children must be comfortable and respectful around animals. We have a lot here, they are amazing and kid friendly. *Kids fill this space with their amazing energy so please make sure you account for them in your reservation. If your kids are walking they are considered little people and are charged at regular price. Please inform during booking there will be kids in your party, that way we can possibly reserve a site closer to amenities.  Please bring your own tent. All campers get all access to our hand built cob kitchen which is fully equipped and access to our epic dining hall deck and other surprises. It’s a very sunny property so please bring a canopy for shade if you want it over your campsite. But remember to bring stakes, it can be windy here. There is limited water due to the drought. Here we make every drop count so please come with water conservation in mind. Also for big groups, we love celebrating but please please avoid bringing balloons, styrofoam, plastic banners, plastic cups, streamers or anything else that can blow away in the wind. We are off-grid with no amenities from the city so please be mindful of how much trash you’ll leave behind. It’s always a journey finding the magical places so just a sweet heads up our mountain dirt road is a bit bumpy. Cars make it up all the time. Be sure to drive at a steady pace on the way up and don’t stop till you see the Welcome sign! You will be greeted by one of our wonderful residents.... Or myself!  We look forward to meeting you and sharing space with Y’all! Please bring your own Drinking Water (this helps keep the staff that work here safe!)  It’s an open air environment so it’s up to the comfort of the individual to wear masks.

Layna has left her creative heart out for all to see in this eclectic and mystical landscape, a place of healing and discovery within the cradle of a kaleidoscopic canyon land filled with bright starry nights and serene sunny days. We felt the immense love poured into this place and the receptivity to all walks of life seeking the sacred in the great purposes with other unique soul-centered beings. Highly recommend and look forward to my return!

We had a great time at Raven’s landing, with all it’s creative energy, friendliest hosts, and fantastic animals! There were a few other camping groups in the “village” and it was great meeting new friends there!

10/10 would recommend!
My friends and I loved camping at Raven's Landing! The staff and the other campers were all so friendly. It was also great seeing all the different animals including the doggos, deer, and peacocks. Functionality wise, we loved using the kitchen to cook our meals and using the bathrooms to freshen up. 10/10 would recommend!

Bohemian Beauty!
Wow! My favorite people and I went on an adventure together and found Ravens Landing. I fell in love with it. It's a very self sufficient ranch, so expect to be taken care of with eco conscious amenities. Compost and recycling are highlighted. Expect a fun bohemian and whimsical time being close to nature. Would 100% visit again.

Just What I Needed
Incredible hospitality that matches the views. Removed from the road giving the true feeling of being in nature while still having plenty of comfort. Great atmosphere, met many awesome people, and Ravens Landing went above and beyond for me. 10 out of 10 Thank you so much!

It was a unique place. Friendly host. Peacocks we’re cool to see. I had mixed feelings about this place because there’s not much to do around the area. We went to check out Clear Lake and was warned by the locals that the water is toxic! It gets very hot during the day and very cold at night. Last, there’s Wi-Fi but it’s $20 per group. The dining area was well maintained. Be prepared to socialize with other groups.

Friendly hosts, unique property
The host and her family were very responsive and friendly throughout the entire experience. We recommend a vehicle that is good on trails to access the property. The animals are a delight, there are Peacocks, dogs, cats! The dogs were friendly and roamed the property freely, we truly enjoyed their company and felt safe with them monitoring the area. The dogs greeted us and escorted us around the property. The dining area/large porch with overlook is separate from the inverted tree house however it was spacious, clean, and absolutely the gem of this property. The inverted treehouse suited our needs well, two people fit in the bed provided in the loft while a sleeping pad the size of a twin mattress fit well on the first floor below the loft. It accommodated 3 of us well and could have fit another person if you are okay with a tight sleeping arrangement. We brought our own mini generator which was useful for additional lighting/electricity needs. We were informed the property generator may turn off at a specific time (the host was willing to prolong the time if we were going to be up past 12 am). The kitchen area is beautiful and spacious with multiple propane stoves and all the utensils you may need. If you have limited mobility the treehouse may not be the best choice if you plan to sleep in the loft, but otherwise the stairs are more sturdy than they initially appear.

This is the coolest camping spot! We were so happy to find this. Lanya is an awesome host and all of the shared amenities were great. There are lots of friendly animals - dogs, chickens, peacocks, and even a deer named Fen! Our group is excited to go back.

Absolutely beautiful art, Layna's passion comes through with every aspect of her stunning property. She built a camp that fosters conversation and community, while still allowing for privacy and an individual experience. Absolutely lovely place for people and animals, and the burnt trees lent a surreal and otherworldly nature to this retreat from reality.

You'll want to keep it a secret!
I don't want to say honest (and amazing) things about Layna's Raven's Landing because great things are the truth, and I'd rather say things that are less than true because I rather not too many people discover it. I don't want the secret spoiled or her land overrun the next time I have a chance to go. It's beautiful. Layna and Rose are amazing and welcoming. The community style cooking and eating means you'll make new friends, right away. You have your choice of grill, firepit, or stove. The peacocks are loud. Fenn - the very social deer is happy to make his way into your food stores (or tent) if you're not careful. There are friendly dogs, children, and a trampoline. The views over the valley are epic no matter your vantage point - even if that's from a compost toilet. You can dunk your head in the pond. Cache Creek is 10 minutes away and makes for great river splashing. There are many epic hikes. Raven's Landing is full of love and creativity. If you're lucky enough to go, you'll want to go back (and back, and back, and back). Thanks Layna!

Star sleeping
Great simple camping with the luxury of an open-air communal kitchen. Intermittent big wind, plenty of happy-to-travel star thistle, minimal shade, and scarce (but well managed) water, along with unpaved surfaces are all part of the raw beauty of this place and its friendly fauna. With low light pollution here, the night sky sparkles. The host is wonderful. Layna's descriptions are spot on, including the note that if you want shade, bring it with you.

I had an amazing time staying with Layna and love everything she has cultivated and built at Raven's Landing. Things really feel magical there - a deep immersion in love, beauty, and connection. Maybe not for the high-maintenance traveler, but perfect for someone like me! I will definitely be back as soon as I get a chance! <3

Unique Property and Community
What a neat space! Raven's Landing is revitalizing and upgrading since it was burnt down in 2014. The kitchen area and communal space is continually being renovated with organic and recycled materials, giving the place a homely but renewed vibe. The artwork and live peacocks (we named them Kevin 1 and Kevin 2) adds unforgettable character to the area. There are several campsite areas, some are cozy and enclosed by shrubbery while others are open to view the vast landscape. We enjoyed our enclosed space behind the garden where we could build our campfire right in front of our tent. It was convenient drive through the property and park the car near our site. Would recommend camping here for a quiet getaway or to socialize with the volunteers and landowners who plan festivals and regular outings.

Ravens landing is a amazing gate away. Me and my friends had really quality time up there. Ravens landing is a place where you find your self in the nature and the atmosphere up there made me realize how we forget the nature living in the city(shitty) life.

We were only here for one night yet we feel a deep sense of rejuvenation as if we had traveled much further and for longer. Layna has created a very very special and place to be and experience. Every building, space and sign is handmade and unique and quirky (in the best way!). We will definitely come back!

We had such an amazing time staying at Ravens landing. I was looking for a surprise camping trip with my girlfriend. We had such an amazing time playing with the dogs, feeding the peacocks and deer, hanging out with Layna, listening to music on the deck and gazing at the stars. I can't wait to go back again. Thank you so much Layna!!!

Wow! Our weekend was full of delightful surprises and special moments in this well-cared for space. A kiss from a deer. A cry from a peacock. A giant poo emoji. Mysterious vibrations. Check it out yourself if you’re the open-hearted, adventurous type :) PS: It’s very hot in the summer so I highly recommend the day trip to the magical nearby creek!
