Welcome to the Enchanted Forest Retreat! We are a meditation retreat center with 45 acres of some of the most gorgeous redwoods in the Santa Cruz mountains to enjoy hiking, creeks and small water fall exploration, mountain biking, wildlife viewing, star gazing, relaxation, meditation and more. We have 18 campsites, 3 Glamping Tents, 2 Tiny Houses and 2 Guest Suites in the house. Our campground has running water from a natural spring, Men and Women's Restrooms each with 2 toilets and 1 hot water shower and plugs for charging phones, laundry shed with sink and hot water, one shared BBQ grill by the fence up above the creek, and an outdoor amphitheater. 25 minutes to Silicon Valley - 25 minutes to Santa Cruz Boardwalk we're centrally located in the south bay. Dogs and kids are welcome - dogs must be picked up after and kept on a leash if other campers are present. Please note: This is camping - there may be bugs, critters, dirt, unpredictable weather (pack for the cold, just in case - we get surprise fog often!), early sunrise, no cell data, etc etc. It's not the Hilton - but it is gorgeous. ;) Shopping such as Safeway, Costco and the big box stores are 20 minutes away in Soquel; however, we have a charming little market (Summit Center) 3.5 miles away that has a great selection of groceries, drinks and hot foods, etc. Please feel free to reach out with any questions and we'll help however we can!

Site Large Group Enchanted Forest
Great site, great host!
The Group camp ground was great and Jessica was a fantastic host. Or original site was a bit small and Jessica was very willing to help us out by moving us to the group site. It has a ton of room, a 60 second walk to the trail, and about the same to the bathrooms/shower. We will absolutely be back!

Site 12 - Enchanted Forest Retreat w/Showers
Sweetly nestled under the redwoods
We booked 3 non consecutive nights at this camp last week. The bell tent was VERY clean and sheets and bedding very warm and cozy and fresh! With sweet touches of redwood/ pine branches to greet us on the doormat and inside the tent. We camped in the car the other 2 nights and slept very well nestled under the redwoods. The host was kind and flexible with late check-out. We enjoyed exploring the hiking trails and communing with nature. The bathroom is similar in quality to what you might find at a state or county run park, but with pack it in and pack it out philosophy. I鈥檇 like to check out the tiny house by the creek, as I鈥檓 sensitive to noise and light and tents can be bright for me. I felt very safe and nestled there, and will likely return! We did not have reception at the campsite. My partner had it further up the long driveway, but I did not (I have AT&T).

Site 2 - Enchanted Forest Retreat w/Showers
Magical forest
Sure #2 has good privacy, shade but it's a bit dusty. Good proximity to the restrooms, and hot water is definitely a plus. Restrooms were clean, we had complementary shampoo and conditioner in the shower. The redwood forest is amazing. We saw a deer, a bunch of wild turkeys and a hare near our camp site. Will definitely come back.
