Very private camp on a small olive farm. Geographically close to highways and the town of Novato, Sonoma and Napa wine country, this camp feels remote and secluded. Only one camp on the property to keep it private and special. You basically have your run of the land. We have just updated the land and made some nice improvements. Located on ten acres, you will drive past a small olive grove before reaching the spacious and open campground.
We have just renovated our old bar for use as a kitchen, tent pad or sitting area. Check out the new pictures to see what we've done!
Just up the hill from the camp is a private pond where you can fish, take out a small boat or just sit and watch the birds. It can be great swimming on hot summer days.
This spot has been used by the family for decades and is now open to share with fellow nature lovers.
Just a note: While the majority of the time you can expect complete privacy, this is a working olive farm. From time to time you may run into me (Sam) or someone else associated with the land. We will always do our best to respect your space.
***Update: 11/17/21*** Due to our early rain this year, I am currently allowing fires for the season.
Please be aware that we are all living in a new fire reality in California. We are in the midst of a drought. This year's rain was almost non-existent. Because of these factors, I will be banning fires during wildfire season. Unfortunately, wildfire season just seems to get longer every year. Trust me, I know fires are a big part of camping. I grew up having campfires all summer long and wish this wasn't necessary but I'm afraid this is the new normal. Thanks for understanding.
We have increased our number of campers from 10 to 12 because we suspected that people were bringing that many anyway. If you are planning on a large group, please just reach out to us so we can all be on the same page. If you think you may be looking at more than 12, we can probably work it with the right communication. We just don't like the surprises. Thanks!

Host Sam was very responsive for a last minute trip. This is a unique, large, single, well-equipped campsite. The space can host a large fun group, or a just a single camper with their dog looking to relax. Oh, I'll be back. Pack it out campers.
This was our first Hipcamp and we had a great time. We didn't meet Sam but he was super responsive to any questions and concerns. It was during the Labor Day heat wave so we didn't stick around the campsite during the day, but it was pleasant in the morning and late afternoon/evenings. I appreciated the huge open space, the sink, and lights! Thank you, Sam!
Great place to camp. Large spacious site, string lights provided ample lighting, very close to town, but felt secluded and private. Sam is a great host and responsive to any questions. Will definitely be coming back.
My new favorite place to camp!
We had such an awesome camping experience at the Olive Farm! Really enjoyed the privacy the camp provides… no screaming kids, no generators humming or annoying yahoos camping right next to you. The place is absolutely beautiful and easy to get to. Even though it is not far from home I felt very much one with nature.
The best part about the private property was that we were able to bring our dog camping for her very first time. She is terrified of other dogs and cannot be anywhere that off-leash dogs can approach her so she had the most amazing time ever and now I don’t want to camp anywhere else.
Sam is a wonderful host and he answered all my questions before we booked the site (mainly questions about the security of the property from other dogs) and once we got there he was readily available via messaging and was happy to hear we were enjoying his property so much. You can really tell the space is very special to him and he takes great care of it.
My favorite part about the site is the sink with running water in the beautiful outdoor kitchen. We glamp and I said to the hubs, “finally, I get an open-concept kitchen with an island!”
I highly recommend this site to anyone who is ok with an outhouse that is a bit far from your camp site.
We will be back!
Private, golden setting
Pros: Private and accessible, cute setting and gorgeous oaks. We weren't aware Hip Campers can use space towards the barn (where toilet and shower are) but you can! Cons: some traffic noise, and more golden than green showed in the pictures due to drought, plus pond is questionable for swimming.
Very private and peaceful retreat surprisingly close to the urban area. If you want to be alone outdoors in the bay area to enjoy some peace and quiet, this can not be beat. Pack it in and pack it out. Leave it better than you found it. What a find!
