Whaleback Ridge Campgrounds

10 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents34 acres · Calistoga, CA
Welcome! We offer 3 options on our land, just 10 minutes from beautiful Calistoga, mud baths, the community pool ($8) and of course the restaurant and fun bar scene. I teach at SF State, and spend my summer vacations visiting our family land and running hipcamp, amidst various travel plans. I am proud of our little camp for being an affordable option in Calistoga with gorgeous views and peaceful nature settings. Whaleback Ridge has 2 main sites that overlook “the Whaleback”, named by my great-great grandparents who settled here 100 years ago. The top of the Whaleback is the far edge of our 34-acre property, and is accessible by trails (hiking map will be sent to you upon booking). The sites, overlooking this ridgeline through the trees, are called the Shaded Oak and the Married Manzanitas - both are very rustic and outdoorsy. The Married Manzanitas site has the additional option of staying in a cozy Tent Cabin set up with a futon bed, desk and loveseat - called the Married Manzanitas Cabin. Cabin is almost finished but ready to stay in; it has full canvas walls and finished inside, but not all wood panels have been finished on the exterior (giving it more of a tent feel for summer). Each main site is very private, and all sites share access to the "Hilltop 360 View Station" where you can find the outdoor kitchen (with appliances available to use in the shed), WiFi (most of the time), a NEWLY REBUILT shower/tub combo, and a propane grill or campstove for cooking, as well as plates, utensils, spices, etc. *Note: over the last two years, we've made many changes and upgrades. See most recent pictures towards the top, and in the Site Descriptions, for the most accurate idea of what we offer. TWO AVAILABLE SITES: 1. Shaded Oak: small RV/trailer accessible, this is a back-in site for RVs - cars have a 3- or 4-point 'turnaround' by the Keep Going sign (mind the trees). There is also one designated flat spot for tents, but easily 1-2 more flat spots, including the flat spot to park RVs, trailers, cars, etc. *For trailers, the back-in is slightly challenging; we recommend you drive to the top of the driveway (the Hilltop 360 View Station where the main house is), and turn around for easier maneuvering. This site has a table, chairs, garbage can with bags, dish soap and a 5 gallon water jug for a "handwashing" station (this is well water, not harmful to drink but not "spring" water). When Married Manzanitas is vacant, you have the option of the more private, lower shower in the Married Manzanitas site (Dan will let you know if that site is vacant; otherwise shower is available at the Hilltop 360 View station). All sites have their own compost toilet and garbage bin - for more info, see Site description or the Info Doc I will send upon booking. 2. Married Manzanitas: tent or open star camping only, with mainly walk-in access to the site (about 40 yards). Driving in with 4WD or high clearance vehicles is definitely do-able, and optional, at your own risk of scratches. You'll have a large table, chairs, flat spot for tent with a tarp available, your own compost toilet "throne" (see details in Site Description/Info Doc). This site has a dishwashing and handwashing station, as well as utensils, dishes, and a small one-burner camp stove available in drawers under the sink. *There is a private propane heated shower at this site marked by the red shade cloths, and is exclusive to Married Manzanitas campers when rented. This shower is fed by a hose - You might need to walk to the hilltop station to turn on the hose, if you use it more than once. Note: The Married Manzanitas site is the only one that doesn't accommodate a trailer or RV, since it is walk-in, 2WD vehicles with some clearance, or 4WD accessible. SHARED: Hilltop 360 View Station is across from the main yellow house at the top of the hill. When you reach the hilltop, stay left towards the Welcome sign and small yellow shed. Behind the yellow shed, you will find shared access to electricity, a sink, our newly rebuilt shower/tub combo (see pics), the other larger outdoor tub, propane grill, campstove; inside the shed you'll find the microwave, mini-fridge, coffee maker, utensils and dishes, and lots of games! The Shared Kitchen is outside, however many of the supplies and appliances (coffee machine, microwave, toaster, mini-fridge with freezer) are inside the shed. Use the appliances inside, then take any dishes, utensils, pots and pans, etc. to the stainless steel counter with sink. Please wash and return anything you use back to the shed (or leaving them in the drying rack is fine). There is also a treehouse deck (made from recycled redwood from our old deck) and a swing:) *Please note: much of our hipcamp is made of recycled redwood from when I rebuilt our deck, and leftovers from other big projects (like concrete fiber siding), and/or supplies from Dan and Mariah's wedding - and we're proud to be recycling these materials into new projects for the hipcamp (like the treehouse, some of the shower), so that you can enjoy the scenery and serenity of our land. OTHER GUIDELINES: *Everyone is welcome to drive or walk to the Hilltop, where the main house is; just don't knock on the door or disturb the family living there. Dan stays in the White cabin when visiting, but please contact by text. Park anywhere between the yellow shed and small white 'cabin' near the water tank. For hiking, keep walking past the white cabin to access the main hiking trail to the Whaleback Ridge (past the compost toilet, look out for the first left to access the main fire road to the Whaleback (map will be sent to you in a google doc). *You may not need the Hilltop Station if you're using the lower shower and/or self-contained in your RV, but it is there if you would like to use it. *Feel free to wash/rinse any dishes you want to use FIRST, as dust, etc. is likely to accumulate up here. *After use, please clean, dry and return anything you used to avoid a $10 cleaning fee. *Both bathtubs are available for soaking, for an extra $10 per stay (add 'Extra' at booking or contact Dan if you decide to use it later). *Other Extras available at booking (or contact Dan if you're already camping): bicycles ($10 each per stay); kayak and all gear ($15); tennis rackets/balls for court in town ($10 per day for all); 4 person tent ($10); clean sheets for the Tent Cabin bed ($10, in case you don't bring your own sheets or sleeping bags). Games are free to use - please replace as you found them. *We have an old dog! She is a husky-akida mix (her name is "Beautiful") and she will bark at first. She makes friends quickly; feel free to meet her and show you're friendly, then ignore her and/or play with her! But please don't feed her human food, and watch your food (!). If you bring pets, they should be fine! If yours is at all questionable with new dogs, please just introduce them slowly at first, and then they should get along famously. Throwing a toy or stick should work, or if available, give her a dog treat. *Dan should be around most of this summer! I stay in the white cabin when I visit, and I'm available by TEXT (through the hipcamp app). In emergencies or stuck cars, our tenant/host at the main house can usually help with his truck - after work hours - for a $15 emergency help fee if he's available, and has graciously done so before. But remember, Dan is the main point of contact by text. If you need WIFI to send a text, you can connect at the Hilltop 360 View Station. Wifi Info is on the google doc that I will send to your phone or email upon booking; I recommend downloading the doc to your phone in case you don't have service:) *For hiking, you can explore most all parts of the property NORTH of the driveway/camps. You can get to "The Whaleback" most easily by walking to the "Hilltop 360 View Station" and walking left, past the white Coral Cabin, about 25 yards then taking your FIRST left trail and following the main trails which will cover the edges of our 34 acres, about 30-45 min. hike to the top of the ridge. If you reach the small pond, you've gone too far past the FIRST left trail. The other way to access this trail is through our "Fern Gully", which is Northeast of the Shaded Oak and/or Whaleback View Cabin (past the compost toilet and then 'right,' down the wash will get you to our dried up streambed, then right again following the streambed will eventually get you to the main trail). These trails are tame enough, but at spots they do get overgrown, and it is wilderness. -rattlesnakes, ticks, and poison oak - long pants and hiking boots recommended. *Steer clear of the neighbors down the hill - the first house you see when you drive up the driveway. Please do not approach the lower house or invade their privacy. It is my cousin and I like to be as respectful of their space as possible. *When you book, a google doc with much of this information, and other tips, will be sent to you which you can download as a PDF on your phone to keep available when you lose WiFi. *This is a beautiful, serene, and peaceful spot! We invite you to come contribute to that energy.

Ettawa Springs Resort

5 sites · RVs, Tents100 acres · Middletown, CA
Ettawa Springs Resort dates back to the 1920s and 30s like the fashionable resorts in the Cobb area where the rich and famous came to play. But Ettawa was oriented towards families and a more relaxed and rustic atmosphere. We are working hard to restore her to her former glory. We are excited to announce that we have a few campsites ready for use and will be adding more soon. We offer hot showers and flush toilets and some sites with running water. You can hike through our property to the Cobb Mountain Demonstration Forest or just enjoy the clean air and listen to the wind and the creek. On clear nights the stars put on an amazing show. Clear Lake is about 45 minutes away with all the fishing and water sports you could ask for. Harbin Hot Springs are 15 minutes away and they offer day passes for reasonable rates. We are located about 20 minutes outside of Middletown. Be aware that half of the road is gravel (and that's better than the asphalt half) all of it is fine for small cars, just take your time. The last 1/2 mile or so is a one lane road, so please be careful of opposing traffic and uneven surfaces. We cannot accommodate vehicles longer than 25’ on these roads. We offer California camping at its finest. Fresh air, whispering trees, amazing star fields . . . this can mean the less attractive side of nature as well. We have ticks, rattlesnakes, stinging things, poison oak, uneven trails and surfaces, and a bear on one ridge with mountain cats on the other (no sign of either in the campground). We keep the restroom stocked with tick spray and Tecnu for the poison oak, but please watch yourselves and especially children. Dogs are welcome, but should be kept on lead for their own protection and the comfort of others. We are fairly hands off in our hosting approach. Unless there's a question or problem, you likely won't see us. But we have people close by and are only a message away.

Nelson Family Vineyards

7 sites · RVs200 acres · Ukiah, CA
For 70 years the Nelson family has been farming vineyards and attracting people every year to the beautiful region of Hopland. It is truly a family affair as each generation has put in their time and energy, infusing this ranch with their own flair. In 1951 Herman and Clara Nelson sold their ranch in what is now Silicon Valley and headed north, landing in Southern Mendocino County near the town of Hopland. Since then the mature prune orchards and grass-fed sheep that dotted the farm’s rolling hills have given way to an abundance of sustainable vineyards as well as Bartlett pears, an olive orchard, and live Christmas Trees. You will be staying on a working ranch, vineyards, and winery. We have several locations but none of them have hookups at this time. We have vineyard views and oak woodlands and hilltop valley views. We host weddings and other events. We have a tasting room and a redwood picnic area. We are the fourth owners of this property. The ranch has produced hops, prunes, pears, wine grapes, sheep, and cattle at different periods. Currently, we grow pears, grapes, strawberries, and Christmas trees.
