Glamping near Santa Cruz guide

Overview

Whether you want woodsy seclusion or a lively scene, you can enjoy a glamping stay in or near Santa Cruz that combines the area’s natural beauty and surf-town vibe. North of town, the Santa Cruz Mountains and Redwood forests are home to a few glamping options like rustic cabins, cottages, and yurts, some with linens, kitchenettes, and free wifi. Check out a couple of state parks—such as Butano, Portola RedwoodsBig Basin Redwoods, or Henry Cowell—to discover the natural splendor. In town, the beach boardwalk is a top attraction, along with the downtown shopping and dining district. For a more bucolic coastal view, take a picnic lunch to Wilder Ranch State Park. The California Coast continues down through MontereyCarmel, and on to Big Sur, where plenty more glamping opportunities await. This is a popular area in the summer, so book ahead. The weather is mostly mild year-round with wet winters; fog and wind are common on the bay.
