This campsite is on its own parcel and can accommodate up to three RV/trailer etc.

Get away from it all, while being in the middle of everything! Resting at 2,800’ feet enjoy acres of privacy from your self contained unit, RV or travel trailer, while camping on your own secluded parcel with unparalleled panoramic views of the Monterey Bay.  

Experience everything the Bay Area has to offer from this mountain top site. With jaw dropping views, and roughly 50 minutes to any city in the Bay Area, this site is ideal for any person looking for an adventurous getaway retreat.  

The seclusion and privacy make this an uncommon, yet ideal romantic trip.  This site is sheltered by the manzanitas and pines of this chaparral community, with its Eastern border along Uvas County Park.

Adventure seekers will find paradise here!  Mount Madonna Park with miles of trails is 20 minutes down the road. You can dump your septic there as well!  Horseback riding rentals are located near the park as well as an archery range. 

Demonstration forest is 15 minutes down the road, with miles of mountain biking. Spend a day at one of the beaches in Santa Cruz, Capitola, Aptos, Rio Del Mar, Davenport, Half Moon Bay, Monterey, or Carmel and return to your private oasis. Or Explore Silicon Valley from this centrally located parcel.

Kim Son Meditation Center and Mount Madonna Center are approximately 15 minutes away.  There are also wonderful wineries throughout the mountains here.

The trip to the site will begin with a three mile drive on a private dirt road.  Being on the very top of a mountain brings more seasonality than the surrounding cities.  Please be prepared for any kind of extreme weather.  It is possible for it to get windy, foggy, rainy, hot and sunny, and even sometimes snowy.

Please note: The nearest grocer is 30 minutes from this site. Emergency supplies are available for delivery to your campsite. Cell phone reception is good on most carriers.  Pets are allowed.  Enjoy your time howling at the moon, star gazing, bird watching/wildlife viewing, or relaxing with your favorite libation.

Don't forget your camera!

It was like staying at our own super private, like we owned it, Mt. top resort! Locked gate, probably more than an acre campsite, outstanding views virtually all around, I mean, I’ve camped at hundreds of spots in all my days, but this spot is one in a million! Thanks again Noah!,, your on to something here!

This camping spot exceeded our expectations. Top on our list was: Private, kid/dog friendly and views. This checked all boxes. Hosts are super nice and responsive and their directions were easy to follow. We will definitely be back! Thank you, Noah & Sarah!

What an absolutely fantastic spot. Amazing views, one side the Monterey bay the side of the ridge, the Santa Clara Valley.
Very private, feels remote, the sites are very nice sized. Will definitely be back. Its one of those places that you hate to give a review on because once the word gets out might hard to book.

Noah was an absolute pro. Showed up w his tractor to clear brush and make extra sure we were able to access the absolutely jaw-dropping views. His pup was adorable and we might have dog -napped him for the night if we could have. Next time?

This is what every stay on HipCamp should be like! The host was around when we arrived, we let ourselves in through the gate and then we had the space all to ourselves. The views were absolutely amazing, we were able to catch both the sunset and the sunrise. We had plenty of space all to ourselves... It was so quiet and peaceful. We went hiking at Mount Madonna which was stunning and also rode bikes in the area. Not only would we highly recommend, we can't wait to go back. Thank you!!

A reclusive site up in the Santa Cruz Mountains offering spectacular views of Silicon Valley. Coordinates were accurate for Apple Maps (about 3-4 miles up a dirt road) and campsite was clearly indicated. Noah was also there to greet us as well and his pup is truly adorable. Privacy is excellent as the site is tucked from the road behind luscious greenery. Can’t how wrong with this one!
