Riverside Bluffs is located on the south side of festival site on a bluff overlooking Ten Mile Creek. Riverside Bluffs is dotted with oaks, pines, and bay trees.

Black Oak Ranch has hosted music festivals on our beautiful 150 acre property for almost 30 years, including The Hog Farm Pignic, Earthdance, The Kate Wolf Music Festival, and the inaugural Hog Farm Hideaway scheduled for next year. Conveniently located just off of Highway 101 in Mendocino County, Black Oak Ranch is home to majestic old oak trees, leafy bay groves, and Ten Mile Creek which is perfect for cooling off on hot summer days. Black Oak Ranch has an abundance of wildlife including deer, raptors, and our newest residents, a couple of families of beavers! Please note: our property is conveniently located just off of Highway 101 and you will hear noise from the highway.

Campsites are on flat terrain. Campsites have shade most or all of the day. The creek is a short walk away from each campsite. Please plan on making your site your own by bringing your own setups, gas-powered camp stoves, etc. We will provide a 6' table and some folding chairs to get you started. We suggest bringing a festive table cover. No wood or charcoal fires or BBQs due to high fire danger. Gas fire bowls are allowed as long as they are not placed on grass (we can help you place them). All bathrooms are port-o-lets. We do not offer showers at this time. Ten Mile creek is great for wading and some parts of the creek are swimmable depending on the time of year. Note: Depending on how much rain we get in the winter Ten Mile Creek can be quite dry late in the summer although there is usually at least one swimmable pool. Feel free to inquire about the status of the creek. Kids 12 and under are free.

Riverside bluffs is a great weekend get away spot surrounded by awesome things to do. Our spot, site camp #3 was a little rough around the edges, but a beautiful and secluded spot none the less. Yes, you can hear the free way right there but the stars made up for it - best we have ever seen in our lives. The parks and things to do on the guide that they offer were incredible - Richardson grove had a great redwood hike and a beautiful river spot where we swam. The port a potties were clean and new, the drinking water was nice and accessible. It all made for an easy weekend in a beautiful place! Thank you Black Oak Ranch!

Lots of shade, the creek and swimming holes were amazing for an afternoon cool off (or 3!), the porta potty was honestly the cleanest I've ever seen one, it was super quiet with lots of space between sites. We brought our own propane fire pit and we're able to have s'mores and enjoy the next best thing to a wood fire.

You could hear the road but I hardly noticed. This might become our annual summer camping trip!

Welcome to one of most relaxing Hipcamps. Come and relax or take a dip in the seasonal waters. Come alone or with your family and friends. This safe and wonderful space is a enjoy and the owner's love to share it with you and it shows!
This camp has port-a-potties in reach for everyone, drinking water that is actually drinkable and enough camping space to spread out.
Here you have the option of a propane rental (do it!) as well as a veggie pack, delivered right to your site. The veggie pack is an abundance of homegrown vegetables with a bouquet of wild flowers. I can tell you that you HAVE to get the veggie pack!
Riverside Bluffs is a welcoming and beautiful loved space. I'll be back again and again! Thank you so much. JS #K9JenniferSharpe

Large and isolated with a beautiful river safe for kids and swimmable for adults. The natural forming clay in the river and the small rushing stream make for a natural spa!

Natural spa was awesome & refreshing

Nice, open site that was far enough from Site#1 but close enough for me to feel safe as a solo camper. Site was in shade the entire day and I was ok during the September heatwave that reached 100+ degrees.
Lots of birds to listen to and watch. Nighttime brought owls into the oaks above my tent and the coyotes howled at night. It’s a connection to nature to stay here.

Biasha’s spot was perfect! Plenty of space for everyone and even though there are other sites, you’re not close to anyone else so you have plenty of privacy. Bathrooms and water spigot near each site and right off 101 so very easy to get around. Would definitely recommend to other campers!
