Welcome to Camp Earnest!

The king tent is furnished with a king size bed w/mattress warmer and all bedding, a low coffee table, two Turkish sitting pillows, fresh drinking water, electricity, Tibetan rugs and two ornate trunks for your things. Please be mindful not to leave any food or trash in the tent, as local critters could invade.

Once settled, it's a short walk down Stair Trail to the bathhouse. There is a beautiful path from the main field along the creek, with waterfalls and swim spots, or a full 5.5 mile loop through Gold Rush country. You'll have use of our new Cedar Bathhouse, including a sauna and cold plunge, 3 toilets, 2 showers and sinks.  Yes, our sauna is now fully operational, and our large cedar hot tub should be working by July 4th.

By September, 2021, we hope to boast a small outdoor kitchen for campers as well. The campus has many other picnic areas and fire pits where you're welcome to meet other guests. We host chef prepared family style feasts through GP Dinners and occasional acoustic concerts in our outdoor amphitheater. Contact the hosts if food and music are your thing.

Karin was attentive and caring. Camp Earnest was even better than the pictures. Smelled like a perfect pine/cedar forest. Will be back for sure. Really the best clamping I have ever done.

The King Tent was such a treat.
My partner and I went for a long weekend- the tent was appointed nicely, the bed warmer was critical when the nighttime temperatures got down into the 30s.
Great communication from the owner, and I ask a lot of questions,- they answered every single text promptly and thoroughly.
Now, you also have to keep in mind that the owners have only owned the property for a few months, you can see the work they are putting into the property, there are a few areas that are a “work in progress,” they are tastefully redoing everything, but you realistically can’t expect everything to be done yet.

But, we already inquired about rebooking in a few months because we are excited to see what is to come (hot tub, Turkish bath, etc.)
We found a great hike right off of the trail connected to the property.
Very relaxing, restful weekend.

The site sits on 21 acres and there’s PLENTY of land to explore. I often drifted away from my yurt to lounge in a near by hammock from an empty campsite. The bathrooms are AMAZING. I’d come back just for that very reason… the fresh smell of cedar wafting through the whole place. The cold plunge… the sauna.. WOW!!! My only very tiny tiny tiny gripes were there was no shower gel to wash with (and I didn’t bring any as was trying to have minimal things with me) and no coffee grinder… but once I asked they brought me fresh ground coffee and I was very thankful. Karin actually messaged me after I left bc i left my books there and she is sending them in the mail to me this week. Would i come back here???? I DEFINITELY will!! I want to bring all my friends…especially since they are building a outdoor hot tub.
If you do stay here and stay in the King tent just be prepared to be HOT, I’d bring a portable fan, but evenings are very comfy.

We loved sitting on the deck of the spacious and charming King Tent. The bed was amazingly comfortable. Karin and Raman are gracious, warm hosts, glad to answer questions or offer tips on local lakes and hiking trails. Camp Earnest was the relaxing, peaceful getaway we needed!
