This is one of 4 sites at Rudy Ranch. Our property wide, maximum capacity is 16 and all campers have access to the swimming pool, pool bathroom and shower during their stay. 

CHECK IN IS ONLY ALLOWED BETWEEN 2:00 AND 7:00 PM because we are in a residential area we do not allow tent/camp set up to disrupt our neighbors' and other campers' evening. If you can't make it and have your tent set up by 8 PM, please book for the following day. If you are car or RV camping and rolling in late it's fine as long as you are considerate about turning off your headlights ASAP and not shining bright flashlights through the camp and into our neighbors windows. :)

If you're looking for an ADULTS ONLY, beautiful and quiet place to camp, rest, kick back and hear the birds and wind in the trees, you've found it!  While we do enjoy the energy of young children, we live in a very quiet neighborhood and have made the decision to exclusively host adult guests looking for a restful retreat. We have also decided that we will not make exceptions to this decision and invite those looking for a family experience to continue their search on the Hipcamp platform. There are many family friendly hosts excited to accept children of all ages!  

This is a narrow, level spot between our home and the swimming pool; perfectly suited for RV's, but fine for tent camping as well. Includes pool, shower, bathroom, bbq and community wood fire pit is situated between two tent sites. There is firewood available at the self serve kiosk one block down from us on the corner of West Park and Debby and at the neighborhood grocery store.

COVID-19 - While we offer soap, hot water and disinfectant spray we trust that our campers are taking precautions to stay safe and will practice social distancing while staying with us. We do not have anything marked, as we trust that we all are aware of how far 6 feet apart is. ;)  We are not able to clean the bathroom at the swimming pool after each guest and ask each camper to clean up before and after themselves to ensure their own safety.  Sadly, someone has already stolen some of our supplies and we can't afford to keep giving away free things. We know that YOU would never do that....

Thanks for understanding!!!

This site is in the middle of the property where voices, music and car doors slamming really carries and can disturb others.  We ask that you are considerate to the other campers, our neighbors and us and keep the volume low. Please refrain from opening and slamming car doors and hatchbacks repeatedly. In other words, keep car doors open until all your stuff is out. ;) Yes, it's really necessary to say this, believe it or not....

Please let us know how many in your group smoke cigs when you request to book. This lets us know that you've read through this information and we can continue the acceptance process. 

Join us and enjoy all that the Santa Cruz Mountains have to offer!

If you plan on attending Outside Lands at Golden Gate Park, you've come to right place! Book your stay at Oliver, located 1 hour and 20 minutes from Golden Gate Park. Our space offers an ideal way to relax and recharge after a day's fun enjoying the music and food at Outside Lands.

Worked great for us. We needed a place near Santa Cruz to park our small motor home for a couple nights while in the area. Was a good home base for us while in town. Enjoyed walking into town for a bite to eat as well.

I would recommend this site for tent camping but not as much for camper van or rooftop tent as the place to park is quite narrow. The pool is a great addition although it’s not heated. Having a real toilet and sink is a luxury while camping as well as a functioning kitchen (bbq grill, table, electricity, sink) both just steps away. There was usually a line to use the bathroom in the mornings and evenings but we got to know the other campers. The pool and bathroom is right next to this site so there’s not a lot of privacy but we didn’t mind. The location is good and is definitely walking distance into downtown Boulder Creek. We also checked out Ben Lomond and Felton which are also great towns.

Gordon welcomed me as I drove in and helped me back my trailer into the spot, which was roomy with a nice table in the shade. There was a party at the pool with loud music when I arrived, but it didn't bother me because I liked the music. After about 4 PM it was very quiet. Gordon's mother Joyce and friend Bob also made me feel very welcome.
I took a nice hike up totally deserted Lodge Rd off the highway to Big Basin, and another hike to the summit behind the property, encountering no one on either hike. Made a nice stop at Henry Cowell SP on the way home. Coming home to the Bay Area via Felton and Mt Hermon road was more relaxing than the very curvy ride on Bear Creek Rd.

Just what it said in the description! A fairly small plot, good for a night of camping, next to the pool. Easy to find the address. There was a convenient picnic table right next to the site. Town is a 5min walk away so you can go in for dinner without driving.

Only con - I was a little disappointed that the pool light stayed on all night and shone into the tent, but it was probably for safety.

Really awesome spot in Boulder Creek. It was a great place for us to base camp out when going to a show in Felton.

Great location, nice town of Boulder Creek accessible by foot . Was great having a pool and the place to ourselves. Would go again. Some suggested improvements- wi-fi was marginal to non-existent, bathroom could have used cleaning - cob webs. Site was not very level and overhanging trees were in the way. Overall the place could use some tlc. But again, nice centrally located, quiet pleasant spot,

We had a great time at Rudy Ranch. We are a group of women who all own the same small RV. Gordon was so helpful and accommodating. We particularly enjoyed hanging out by the pool and walking the short distance into Boulder Creek. Highly recommended

We loved staying here! Gordon was so responsive, helpful, and friendly. We didn't use the pool but are hoping to come back and use it because it looks fantastic. The bathroom was clean and the fire pit was great. Downtown is a short walk and adorable. We can't wait to come back.
