Simple, cute, and amazing!
Michel is a fantastic host, artist, and human being! Even though we arrived later in the evening, he waited for us and brought us to our site, gave us an extensive background of the campsite and the whole garden.
The garden and the property are amazing. Grand (size and quality) art and sculptures, short hike possibilities with a view of the valley, and super nice people all around (pottery, winery, etc).
We‘d definitely come again if we‘re ever in the area!
Beautiful, thoughtful space!
A lovely spot for family camping with plenty of the right amenities — Michel has clearly thought about what things make camping fun without going overboard with conveniences. We were two families on campsite 1 opposite the kitchen and it was delightful. Fortunate to have a full moon so the gardens were brightly lit even at night. The campsites are spread out enough that it didn't feel like we were on top of others at all (with six kids between us, that's a concern). Michel is a warm and colorful character, super kind and responsive. The per-camper costs add up but we definitely felt like we enjoyed what was advertised and I'd come here again in the future! Also, if ever there was an ideal place for an "invite a lot of friends to camp and have a shindig", this is it.
We’ll be back!
Sierra circles is the best! This was our second time and we’re already planning our next trip back. The property is beautiful with much to see! Art by Michel, the pottery studio, wine tasting, and many pretty waking trails. It has all that you would need to make your trip comfortable and the sites are spacious and well maintained. We stay in site 2 with our pop up trailer and it’s perfect.
This past weekend I hosted a reunion of mountain friends at Sierra Circles Sculpture Gardens. We rented all four campsites and found it was perfect for our needs. It was private and funky and artsy and casual.
I had to cancel
I appreciated all the help Michael gave me- I googled the wrong address & ended up in the wrong city & Michael was sympathetic to what happened- by the time I figured I was in the wrong city it was almost dark & too late for me to continue
We loved our stay at Sierra Circles Sculpture Gardens. Our site was huge with lots of room for the kids to explore. We enjoyed the trails on the property and enjoyed going to Calaveras State Park which was close by. Michael was easy to work with and a great host.
