What isn’t advertised is that there is a permanent tent on a deck with a queen bed and wood stove. Major upgrades from the tent we brought. There’s a fire pit and pop up outhouse as well. The view was great! The sites face east, so things got pretty chilly early when the sun started going behind us over the mountain.

Thanks for your review Samuel. Yes, when our other site is not booked the canvas tent "glamping" is available. I'm happy you enjoyed your stay. Please come back and visit anytime!

Parking space sized site

1) The drive way leading to the sites is very steep uphill and deep loose dirt. We had to attempt the driveway 4 times before we luckily made it up. This should have been listed on the site information.
2) The site that we stayed at was basically the size of a parking space. With my small car parked there (prius) there was quite literally no room for a tent. We were luckily sleeping in the car, but anyone who needs a tent would not have been able to camp.
3) When I arrived I sent a message to the host with a few questions. I never received a reply.

It was a beautiful area but due to the driveway, size, and lack of response, I cannot recommend this site.

Thanks for your review Grant. Yes, its a small camping site for a 4 person tent and a vehicle. Sorry you felt pinched in site 2. Site 1 does have much more space and epic views. I have made some changes to the profile to reflect your feedback. Thanks!

Not rv or trailer friendly

RV and Trailer owners: there is a very steep gravel road with sharp turns. I would not recommend anyone with a 16+ foot trailer. Even with a short trailer, you will be challenged.

I have a 4 wheel drive truck and a 21’ trailer. Did not make it up the hill. Never actually stayed at the site.

We didn't actually end up staying here, but we did arrive to look around. Ed was really accommodating and was willing to let us upgrade to the canvas tent and platform but we were forced to head back to the city.

The tent sites are simply flat places on a dirt and gravel driveway where a tent can be somewhat comfortably set. We didn't see anyplace nearby to walk around and enjoy nature, though perhaps it exists. The view is nice, but it's mostly visible from the tent site.

Altogether the host was very accommodating but we didn't find it to be the best place to pitch a tent.

Perfect little spot for camping in the woods near Santa Cruz. Ed was so nice and a great host. I highly recommend buying his wine as an add on! It was delicious. We’ll definitely be back.

Sunrise point did not disappoint!

We jeep camped overnight so this was a perfect little spot for us. We enjoyed the view of the tarp tent with chimney smoke below us and the deep ravine. The trees were beautiful and the sunrise did not disappoint! Even though we were somewhat close to the road it was quiet. We also wine tasted 4 miles up the road at Byington Vineyards which was a nice pit stop before heading to the campsite.

Gorgeous sunrise and sunset

This was a gorgeous spot! On the first night, I got a bit of an upgrade to the tent structure and it was lovely. The second night was just as nice, even with the other sites full of people and doggos. There's not much hiking, but some short trails along the property, and you are up next to another property - so not so "isolating" but lovely. I watched the sunset up on the ridge (GORGEOUS!) and saw the sunrise while in the tent. Ed was communicative, and the wine add-on was delicious.

Ed’s place was a fun place to stay the night. I had the opportunity to use my 4wheel drive which was cool. I stayed in the 1 spot.
