Night Heron is perhaps one of my favorite ‘secret spots’ on the farm. You CANNOT arrive after dark to this campsite. This is also a pet free zone as it sits on the edge of our vernal ponds with active nesting birds and regular beaver activity. Birdwatchers, those seeking solitude, and other seeking a tucked away magical retreat this is your camp site. location #1 can home 1-3 tents location #2 is more for 1-2 tents.

Generally, this site always allows a campfire IN the designated fire pit and use of the screened spark cover.

Site #1 has a lantern hanger and picnic table fire side bench and enclosed fire pit

Site #2 has a fire side bench and picnic table

Because these two site share proximity we ask that you keep your voices modulated and respect the serenity. Choose Bobcat Camp or Lower Meadow for more boisterous fun camping.

The pond system is 1/4 mile around and you will pass by our soon to be finished tiny houses or ‘bunkies’ that will be ready for fall and winter camping.

    This was my second stay at Nite Heron Camp. I arrived in time to watch helicopters dipping into the nearby reservoir to extinguish a small brush fire. Wendy kept me appraised of the situation and it was indeed resolved by dusk.
    The site itself is full of night sounds and offered enough privacy from other sites. I can now say I’ve heard a bullfrog purr! As my dog and I took our last walk about of the evening, we met the llama and his flock of sheep. I’m already looking forward to my next stay.

    Beauty as the sun slipped away and welcomed night.How I love the high desert!I found the perfect spotEven the dog had fun wallowing!
