Where the Fairies Live

3 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents1 acre · Lagunitas, CA
Come enjoy the beauty of West Marin on our flat, spacious 1-acre property with a seasonal creek and an expansive ancient Buckeye Tree. At night the "magical" tree is lit with hanging solar-lit mason jars and you can sit and relax in our Adirondack chairs. We offer two distinct sites: 1) a fully electrified, heated, SHED, equipped with wifi/refrigerator/microwave that can sleep two people, and 2) a campsite that can accommodate up to four people in a tent/RV/trailer/van/or car camping. Both spaces have their own picnic table and separate portable toilets. Guests from either site can enjoy lawn games such as bocce ball or corn hole as well as a full-size trampoline.   ** Please Note -- This is a family friendly space. You will not have exclusive use of the land; we are a family of four with a friendly dog (a small golden retriever named Orvis, who likes to greet everyone). We live on-site in a small house, about 80ft from the shed and about 80ft from the camping site. We are three miles from Samuel P. Taylor State Park, natural pools at the Inkwells, and miles of hiking. Our property is about 45 minutes from Marin County beaches (Stinson, Bolinas, Limantour), Tomales Bay, Hog Island Oysters, and Pt. Reyes National Seashore. In the opposite direction, we are three miles from Roy's Redwoods and seven miles from Nicasio Valley Cheese Company (plus a seasonal pumpkin patch). This is a wonderful location for relaxing on site or for being a hub for various day-trips in West Marin. Other local amenities include a coffee shop (w/a nice bathroom, 1-mile down the road), a market/deli/burrito shop, a farm stand with local produce, and an amazing Indian restaurant all within 2-miles from the site. A well-behaved dog can stay as well but can not be left unattended. Please note that while West Marin is mostly rural where many homes sit on large acres of land, we are still in a quiet neighborhood setting. No loud parties, no smoking, no loud voices after 9:00 PM.

Blackberry Farm

5 sites · Tents7 acres · CA
Blackberry Farm sits on the western side of Mount Tamalpais, tucked in the Gospel Flat area of Bolinas. The family farm and residence were established during the late 1970s on the site of the historic Peter’s Dairy Ranch. The original farmhouse dates back to the late 19th century and survived the great 1906 earthquake. Today, the 7-acre farm is being restored to sustainably support fruit orchards, cottage flower and kitchen gardens, honey bees, a boisterous flock of chickens, and naughty shetland sheep. Our self-serve farmstand attached to our barn has seasonal flowers, organic eggs, heirloom fruit, and local goods from the farm. Our property is the perfect rustic getaway for backpackers and outdoor enthusiasts. You’ll be surrounded by farm/ranch life: chickens clucking, roosters crowing, bees buzzing, and sheep bleating. We also have active nighttime wildlife: coyotes howling, raccoons foraging, owls hooting, etc. Bring earplugs if nature sounds are too much for you. We offer 4 walk-in tent sites that allow you to immerse yourself in nature. We welcome well-behaved pets ON LEASH that won’t harass the chickens, cats, sheep, other campers, or residents. Unruly pets and their campers will be asked to leave. No refund. Limit: 1 dog per site. Pitch your tent in a meadow shared by: Campsite 1 - left side of the meadow, closest to the common area and hot tub. Campsite 2 - middle of the meadow, closest to our fenced apiary and bee garden. Campsite 3 - right side of the meadow, near the orchard. (sites 1 and 3 are next to each other) Campsite 4 - front of the pasture, closest to the parking area (best for car/van campers wanting space to lounge near their parked vehicle.) Multiple sites may be booked for group camping. Sites 1 and 3 are next to each other under the Cypress Trees. Add site 2 if you would like the entire back half of the campground. Add site 4 if you'd like to have a maximum number of 16 total campers and 2 tents/per site. The common area has an outdoor shower, hot tub, covered bbq/cook area, tented (weather-protected) hangout space, and a place to stash your surfboard. Redwood Grove hangout areas have seating and tree swings. Please pack out your trash. We offer a recycling bin for glass bottles, cans, and clean paper. Parking is 100 yds or less from the campsites. We have a large wheelbarrow to help you cart your camping gear across the pasture to your campsite. No driving onto or parking in the meadow. Due to the narrow driveway and parking area (lack of turnaround), the site cannot accommodate RVs, trailers, or oversize vehicles beyond 16ft in length, 7ft in width, or 10 ft in height. 1 car per campsite, please. 15-minute walk to the beach and downtown.

The Olive Farm

1 site · RV, Tent10 acres · Novato, CA
Excellent Group Site! We only host one group at a time so you can be with your family and friends in a large, flat and private space. We listed the site for up to 12 campers but feel free to reach out if your group is bigger. The land was originally purchased in the 1980's. Since then, it has been used by four generations of the family as a place to gather, relax, camp and even celebrate. I had my wedding on the property in 2010. For a few years we held an annual music festival with the very inventive name of Samapalooza. Up to 400 people would attend the day filled with live music, food and drinks. You will still find the stage and bar we built as an outdoor kitchen and dining area. Around 2008, my father and I planted our first olive trees. Many have been planted since which has gifted the land the timeless sense of purpose it deserves. My father dedicated his last years to tending the young trees and now I have taken the mantle to carry the farm forward. 'The Property', as it is known amongst family and friends has always been a place to camp. I have sat around the same fire ring for decades, rain or shine. I hope that fellow hipcampers can find the joy that my family and I have experienced here. This is a 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.

Sonoma Country Landing

1 site · RV2 acres · Sonoma, CA
PLEASE NOTE: We do not allow tent or car camping; we do not provide restrooms and only allow self contained vehicles that provide restrooms. This is a family owned property that has been part our story since the 1970's. Dave grew up on this land and is a Sonoma native. His family comes from a long line of dairy farmers who have resided here since the 1950's. Mary and Dave met 20 years ago after Mary moved to Sonoma from San Francisco. We purchased the land from Dave's family a few years ago. We're currently in the process of developing 2.5 acres and are excited to share a piece of our history with you. We have planted a small orchard, a thriving garden, and have plans for an appealing landscape. Enjoy the nearby wineries, hikes, biking and dining in the scenic Sonoma and Napa Valleys.

Finley Camp

13 sites · RVs, Tents20 acres · Bodega Bay, CA
Finley Camp is nestled along Finley Creek in West Sonoma County. Campsites are located in open flats surrounded by Coast Doug Fir, Alder, and California Bay forests. Each campsite has a picnic table and fire pit with cooking grate, and access to a porta potty and hand washing station. The campsites are located past the end of the county road allowing for a quiet peaceful experience. Enjoy a quiet stroll on site, the surrounding communities of Bodega, Bodega Bay, Valley Ford, and Tomales, or just enjoy a quiet day in camp. Our sites are located approximately 20 minutes from Bodega Bay. The campsites are 2.5 miles from the coast and the weather can be unpredictable. As a general rule, it is very similar to that of San Francisco. All camp sites are situated in a valley that offers protection from the coastal winds. The have both morning and evening shade. Sites #2, #6, #7, and #11 have the most space, while sites #4, #7, #8, #9 and #11 offer the most privacy. Sites 1-3, any combination of 5-7, and 12-13 are well suited for groups. Other site groupings work well depending on the number of sites being reserved. Site #8 is unique in that it has a wood deck/platform for tents. There are also NO wood fires allowed at site #8 as it is under the tree canopy. A propane firepit is provided for your use. You can bring a 5 gallon propane tank from home, or a full one is available for rent on site. Beginning the weekend of August 11th, 2023 we will have beef available for purchase from calves raised exclusively on our ranch. This beef is 100% grass fed and finished and never given grain of any kind. We have various cuts available such as steaks, ground, roasts, ribs, or other various specialty cuts. All beef is cut and wrapped by a USDA certified butcher. It is raised in an organic manner from cows that freely roam on the pastures of the coastal hills we call home. For further information or for a price sheet, please inquire with the camp host. Well behaved dogs are welcome at Finley Camp. All dogs must be kept on leash at all times while on the property. There are no exceptions to this. Finley Camp is located on an active cattle ranch and directly adjacent to a neighboring ranch with cattle. Also be sure to check out our orchard tours. The apples ripen from Late July thru late November. We'll take you to our family orchard where you can pick apples, pears, or blueberries in season and taste yummy treats out of our family garden.

The Hidden Knoll -- 360 Degree View

9 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents5 acres · Hidden Valley Lake, CA
Peaceful 5 acre private mountaintop above the wine country (possibly an extinct volcanic cinder cone) with 360 degree views of 4,000 to 7,000 foot Mayacamas mountains all around in every direction. Brand new panoramic view well water filled hot tub with cold plunge pool. We also recently added a Trellino composting toilet and two outdoor showers (hot propane and cold Solar) for the convenience of our guests, more chairs, tables, camp stoves, and fireplace tools. We have a dog kennel, and allow dogs to roam free on our 5 acres. Electricity, firewood and laundry are available at additional charge. We are 25 minutes to Napa Valley, 5 miles from Guenoc Valley wine country, 5 miles from Six Sigma Ranch and 6 miles from Harbin Hot Springs. You can walk (with a dog) to a nearby pristine swimming lake, go on a dog friendly kayak rental on Clearlake (with 11 free public boat launches) or a dog friendly wine tasting tour at Six Sigma Ranch. Lake County has many pet friendly patio restaurants. Explore over 40 wineries in California's "New Napa Valley -- many are organic and biodynamic. Visit a saffron farm. Spring-Fall has several local farmer's markets with live music and hand crafts. Epic, un-crowded, un-Yelped and undiscovered hiking, mountain biking, stand up paddle boarding, kayaking and hot springs in the most active geothermal region on Earth, with the cleanest and clearest air in California for dark skies and stargazing. The Geysers of Bottle Rock are visible from our land. Our private mountain is on the edge of open space and wilderness, but in a safe, upscale residential/rural area. If you are looking for "remote" you might be disappointed -- but we attract travelers on the road, and many who use the Hidden Knoll as a rest stop on long road trips, as well as San Franciscans who arrive, weary, just to sleep and rejuvenate. We have a strong signal and wifi -- ideal for "working vacations" for remote workers. Solo Women travelers especially appreciate the safe, convenient location. Less than 2 miles from groceries, hardware store, restaurants -- yet we also have abundant wildlife, eagles, hawks, hummingbirds and native oak forest, and the sounds of rushing water, crickets, cicadas, cows, roosters and grazing goats on neighboring ranches. With some of the cleanest air in the USA and no streetlights, we have a very dark sky, bright moon and stars and on New Moon, the Milky Way galaxy visible with your bare eyes. The property is in Bortle 4, bordering Bortle 3 on the North side, but the clarity of air makes stars brighter. You can also visit an observatory in Kelseyville or Clearlake for even darker sky. Each of our 7 sites and glamping yurts are spaced far apart from each other on 5 acres, and each has a different ever-changing view, North, South, East or West, of Sunrise, Sunset and Moonrise as the seasons change and the Earth spins. Truly you feel a connection with the heavens here in this special, sacred place. EPICENTER OF CALIFORNIA'S NEW AGE According to legend, a network of seven points of spiritual power forms a ring around Harbin Hot Springs, giving people who tap into their arcane energies the power to dream, see visions, and reach “between the worlds.” This is a dormant volcanic region, and one of the most active geothermal regions on Earth. It's possible that this land is one of those points. And we invite you to decide for yourself. The red volcanic soil has an energy that feels clear yet still -- much like the power points and vortices in Sedona. Sunrise and Sunsets are spectacular, every day is a miracle of ever-changing views of mist rising over the Valley, the mountains spanning from Angwin and Napa Valley, to Mt. St. Helena, Harbin Mountain, Cobb Mountain and sometimes, snow-capped peaks. NEAR RESTAURANTS, GROCERIES Guests LOVE that they can leave in the morning and get a smoothie, juice, or breakfast (even an all you can eat buffet) or a good organic latte 1 mile away. There are Oaxaccan, Wood Fired Pizza, barbecue, classic American, Thai, Chinese and Taco restaurants nearby. Two grocery stores and an organic local farmer's market, too. We are five miles from two popular wineries -- Six Sigma and Langtry Estate., with 40 Lake County wineries to explore, many biodynamic and organic. Also five miles (13 minute drive) from Harbin Hot Springs, with hot/cold mineral plunges and sauna available for day use for $35-55. Pet owners appreciate that they can leave their dog in our Dog Kennel (up to 3 hours) while they soak. NORTHERN CALIFORNIA'S HEALING EPICENTER Meditation centers, yoga classes, Watsu massage, kirtan, and sound healing therapy concerts abound throughout this region, where San Franciscans have historically come to revitalize and restore their body, mind and spirit in the dry, sunny climate since the 1800s and "take the waters" of cold and hot geothermal mineral springs. Due to abundant geothermal activity and deep springs of varying temperatures and mineral content, there remain a century long history of hot spring spas and yoga/meditation retreats here. A spiritual community grew in isolation around several intentional communities -- including Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, founder of the Transcendental Meditation movement, at (now defunct) Hobergs Resort. There are still thousands of devotees here of Vipassana, Osho, and the guru Adidam's oldest Sanctuary, The Mountain Of Attention. Hare Krishna have recently restored Mandala Springs on Cobb Mountain. Further North, are clothing optional Orr Springs and Wilbur Springs (still redolent of their bohemian roots). There are also many elegant spas like Vichy Springs, (with a replica of Monet's garden), Konocti Harbor Resort, and Indian Springs in Calistoga. This area was integral to the birth of the Human Potential Movement, and the Human Awareness Institute, the invention of several styles of bodywork, including Harold Dull's underwater Watsu massage, the early roots of veganism and the "Blue Zone" diet in Angwin -- and even the early work of Dr. Timothy Leary at Harbin Hot Springs. A community of artisans, visionary painters and energy and sound healers are drawn to the silence, stillness and peacefulness of the land. VIEW CAMPSITES All campsites have a view, Oak trees, a stone fire ring or Solo type woodstove (when fires are legal in season), vintage teak or metal chairs/tables. Plus shared access to: - Rustic camp kitchen in cute farm shed stocked with everything a camper needs, plates, pots/pans, fire starting tools, kindling, barbecue tools, grill baskets, butane and propane stoves, coffee maker, spices, water, dishwashing area -- even s'mores and skewers! - Borrowed use of Solo-type stove/grill for grilling over wood. (Sorry, no propane BBQ here! We are giving you an intentional rustic experience.) - Electricity outlets to charge devices - Wifi and cell service - Tasty filtered well water - Fire chiminea - traditional terracotta wood fired pizza oven - Hanging macrame hammocks and chair/s in season (not in rainy season) - Complimentary local tea, coffee, and drinking water. - Dog run/kennel - use at your own discretion up to 3 hours while you soak in hot spring or golf. Includes dog toys, water bowl, leash and dog bed, with door into sheltered garage if it gets cold. - 30 foot protected wood pergola with tables/seating for 12, Edison lights and panoramic view - Huge outdoor flat screen TV with Bluetooth sound system on Apple and Chromecast - Shared use of our renovated indoor guest bathroom in our Zen Farmhouse with large walk in stone tile hot shower, two massage heads, flush toilet Dr. Bronner's soap, Shampoo, conditioner, shower gel and lotion by local company EO made with real essential oils. NOTE: We are building an outdoor hot on demand propane shower and Trellino composting toilet a little closer to the campsites for warmer weather. In the Winter, we GENEROUSLY allow campers to share our warm, clean guest bathroom, which is 50-250 feet away, depending upon which campsite you book. MOST campers are THRILLED. However we got some "Karens" who complained that it "wasn't private enough" and they would prefer an outhouse. NOTE: If you prefer a "private" bathroom, the Hidden Knoll is not for you. Does camping ever have a private bathroom? We've camped in hundreds of campgrounds worldwide and this bathroom is a massive upgrade over ANYTHING we have seen. - Cowboy type plunge pool and outdoor solar shower. (Good in Summer.) - 110 power and water available by additional charge (50 cents/kilowatt hour) for your RV or to charge an EV. - Most sites have a stone fire ring, grate, and kindling. We have oak firewood available for a fee and a Solo type stove campers can use, plus barbecue baskets, barbecue tools and skewers. You can also borrow a butane or propane stove. Even...complimentary s'mores! STARGAZING Some sites are very quiet, face wineries and ranches to the North, and have DARK SKY for meteor watching -- you can see the Milky Way. Some of the sites face East for Sunrise and have twinkling lights of surrounding ranches and homes, and incredible views of the Mayacamas Mountains from Angwin/Mt. St. Helena. Some are facing West and the view spans 300 degrees all the way to Mt. Harbin, Cobb Mountain and Mt. Konocti to the West There is some distant traffic noise on this side, though the view is worth it. VIEWS ALL AROUND Each campsite at the Hidden Knoll has different inspiring ever-changing views above the vines, ranches, and Native oak forests facing Mt. Saint Helena, the Mayacamas Mountains towards Calistoga and the clouds and mist of the Pacific Ocean and Sonoma Coast beyond. Our Moon Dance sites face the moon rising over a ridge. Manzanita and Stargazer are quietest with the brightest stars and darkest sky. The Oak Meadow campsites have a sunrise to sunset East to West view, filtered through a native oak forest and a big fenced space for dogs to run. Sunrise Site, our most popular Van/RV/trailer space, faces sunrise East over Angwin, Napa Valley and Mt. St. Helena Sunset Camp has the most stunning view of all--almost 300 degrees all around and you can see geysers on the mountains. DOGS (AND CATS) WELCOME Your pet can go off leash while you are here (at your own discretion) and we have an 8 x 15 foot fenced kennel with a sunny deck perch and dog bed for your pet. (3 hour maximum, not supervised, use at your own risk, bring a crate if you want your pet to stay warm in rain or snow.) Due to presence of wildlife, we recommend that pets are either crated in your tent or kept inside your camping vehicle at night. Dog friendly walking trails nearby and also in Middletown and our neighborhood. CLOSE TO HOT SPRINGS, GOLF, WINERIES Just 5 miles from Harbin Hot Springs (available by reservation on a day pass), 1 mile from golf, 5 miles from several swimmable and fishable lakes, like Lake Burgundy and Bordeaux, and long walking distance to Hidden Valley Lake. We are 5 miles from the Guenoc Valley wine appellation and Langtry Estate winery and several organic and biodynamic wineries and farm-to-table experiences to explore (usually with free tours and no reservations or hoity-toity Napa attitude.) LOTS OF NATURE TO EXPLORE Uncrowded dog-friendly walks, hiking and mountain biking all around, swimming holes, waterfalls and other un-Yelped, secret undiscovered treasures. Clearlake is 20 minutes North, with 11 free boat launches and many places to rent stand up paddle boards and kayaks. Six Sigma and Boggs Forest are popular for mountain biking and hiking. Some swimming and fishing lakes are within 1/2 mile walking distance, others just 5 mile drive. LOCAL ART SCENE Lakeport has a charming lakefront stroll with galleries, local crafts, farm to table goods, premium local cannabis boutiques, brewpubs and exciting new restaurants. Super charming creekside Kelseyville has an up and coming art, maker crafts, food, wine bar and microbrew scene. Cobb has a world-class ceramics kiln with classes and tours, as well as several public swimming pools in Summer, beautiful golf courses, and uncrowded single track mountain biking. ZEN FARMHOUSE VIBE The Hidden Knoll's structures and landscape are uncluttered and what we call "Zen Modern Farmhouse" -- the 40 year old ranch was renovated by master craftspeople in typical wine country Modern Farmhouse style -- sparse, humble, simple, practical -- using repurposed and reclaimed materials due to the lack of outside design influences here. The landscaping is sparse, and indigenous native plants -- mostly rock in order to protect the property from fire (it did not burn in the 2015 Valley Fire.) WARM DRY MICROCLIMATE Lake County has historically been a retreat from San Francisco's damp coastal fog. The mountain range and 4700 foot pass over Mt. St. Helena blocks the coastal fog and sea air, creating a dry, warm microclimate isolated from the Bay Area, geographically and culturally. We are astonished that we're usually above the frost and mist of the valley, with frequent sunny days in the 60s-70s, even in December! Sometimes this feels more like the Desert. The air is crystal clear on most days, (cleanest air in California) and due to the absence of street lights, stars are bright, guests say they see the Milky Way with their bare eyes on New Moon. EV ACCESSIBLE If you have an EV, you will appreciate that most RVs can get here from San Francisco round trip without a tedious recharge--95 miles each way. There is an EV charging station about 7 miles away at the Twin Pines Casino, as well as inexpensive gas here -- $1 a gallon less than you will find in the Bay Area. HAVE YOU DISCOVERED CALIFORNIA'S "SECRET WINE COUNTRY?" California's remote and little visited Lake County is somewhere in between the Wine Country, Sonoma County and the Mendocino Coast and only 2 hours North of the San Francisco Bay Area or West of Sacramento. The dry, sunny climate, on the 39th Parallel North, ideal for growing grapes, is similar to other beautiful grape growing climates at this latitude, like Crete, Ibiza, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Sardinia, Turkey and Mongolia. MYSTIC VOLCANIC LANDSCAPE In the Pacific Ring of Fire, the landscape often reminds me of the Big Island of Hawaii, or upland Maui. The volcanic landscape has active geothermal and hot springs, and a potent spiritual power much like Hawaii, Sedona or Mt. Shasta. The red volcanic soils create a unique fertility and character and enable a wider variety of grapes than Napa Valley. Lake County has a long wine history that dates back to the 1850s when early settlers first began planting vineyards, which flourished in Lake County’s Mediterranean microclimates and soil rich in volcanic ash. In the 1870s, acres of vines were planted by visionaries such as Serranus C. Hastings, the founder of Hastings Law School. In 1888, acclaimed British actress Lillie Langtry purchased 4,190 acres in Guenoc Valley (five miles from us) which included vineyards that had been planted in 1854. But due to the isolation of the steep mountains, Lake County has remained isolated and iconoclastic, less concerned with the outside world. Many businesses here still only take cash. Many locals are third generation farmers. The food here is amazing -- including local wine, honey, pears, grass fed beef, pastured eggs, olive oil, saffron, microbrew beer, and bread. The county has several boutique legal dispensaries with some of the finest sun grown and organic canabis and CBD on Earth. There is an Italian and Mexican heritage -- so you will find wood-fired pizza, Mexican food and markets, and locally baked sourdough bread and pastries--as well as old fashioned American wood grilled barbecue and roadside smokehouses. There are few chain stores--most businesses are small and locally owned. Many only take cash -- so carry cash. RING OF FIRE The volcanic field, part of the Pacific Ocean’s Ring of Fire, contains seven volcanic vents from 10,000 to 2.5 million years old. The Xa-Ben-Na-Po Band of Pomo Indians inhabited the region as many as 12,000 years ago – 4,000 years before Egyptian civilization. In 1874, steamers began ferrying locals and tourists from town to town around Clearlake. Hotels and retreats were built at a feverish pace throughout the region, prospering even though the Clear Lake Railroad never made it to Lake County, keeping the region isolated. By the 1880s, the hills were dotted with luxurious resorts built around mineral springs. Wealthy visitors and celebrities from San Francisco frequented the resorts, traveling to “take the waters” and indulge in lavish parties at establishments such as Hoberg’s Resort. It is believed that the 1906 earthquake caused many of the hot springs to stop, slow down, or go underground because most springs changed around that time and in the years that followed, fires destroyed most of the resorts that remained. We fell deeply in love with Lake County, the people and this land, and are excited to share it with you. We're just getting started. Bear with us as we learn how to host, improve the property and grow from your feedback.

Above the Clouds RV Park

3 sites · RVs23 acres · Glen Ellen, CA
23 beautiful acres at the top of the mountain overlooking the valley below and the mountains on the other side. We are often Above the Clouds in the mornings. You will need to come up a windy country road to get to us but it will be well worth it. Learn more about this land: Welcome to our Above the Clouds RV spot, tucked away in between Napa and Sonoma Valleys - right in the middle of wine country! This is the perfect peaceful getaway near great outdoor activities and some of the best wineries in California! About the Property: Above the Clouds campsite is surrounded by beautiful, stately trees and overlooks the Valley of the Moon with a stunning mountain view. We are just 11 miles from the city of Sonoma and only 8 miles from the Napa Valley - making both destinations really easy to get to. You can enjoy the California wineries, restaurants, and shops that you'd like! We are also ideally located near Jack London State Park - which is a really pretty and historic place to go! The opportunities for hiking around our property are endless, and definitely head to the wineries if that's of interest to you. On our property you can enjoy exploring our more-than 20 acres of land, taking the row-boat (provided by Hosts) out on our pond, hiking or just relaxing in a serene setting and watching a great variety of birds. Formerly utilized as a bed and breakfast, when we moved to the property we definitely wanted to continue sharing the land and views with guests. As hosts, we are around and enjoy getting to know the our visitors if you are up for that, otherwise we are also happy to respect total privacy. There are 3 sites next to the pond, we have one that is there all the time in the summer but those folks only come a couple of times each month. The 2 others are right next to each other near the pond. We haven't started having more than one rented at a time yet but do expect to start that soon. You may have a neighbor or 2. We hope you enjoy the beautiful sunsets and being literally above the clouds as much as we do! About the Listing: Come park your RV on our property and set up camp at a beautiful spot right next to the pond. You should expect to see us on the property, though your site is well away from the house We have minimal electrical and we do have water hookups available for your RV, we do allow generators. There is a BBQ grill that you are welcome to use for cooking some wonderful meals if you'd like! You can enjoy a bite to eat at the picnic table near your campsite.

Camping near Sonoma guide

Overview

Just 45 miles north of San Francisco, the California landscape gives way to rolling hills. This is Sonoma wine country, where you can ride a horse through a sunlit vineyard or hike to epic Pacific views. Tucked between the hills, you’ll find campsites for every style. Walk to a wine-tasting from a cozy RV park, book a luxury yurt, or sleep in silence near the Russian River.

Throughout Sonoma County, regional parks offer affordable camping. Near Santa Rosa, take in breathtaking mountain views from your picnic table at Spring Lake Campground. With 10 miles of trails and a large reservoir, this park is ideal for hiking, biking, and swimming.

Prefer to stay near the ocean? On Bodega Bay, Doran and Westside offer beach access and sport fishing. Camp on the rocky, quiet Sonoma coast at Stillwater Cove or Gualala Point. As you hike the ocean bluffs, be sure to watch for whales offshore.

If redwood camping is more your speed, head to Samuel P. Taylor State Park. The tent and RV sites (no hookups) have fire rings and drinking water. Nearby, biking trails and a wheelchair-accessible path run by lovely Lagunitas Creek.

The best part? Since Sonoma has a mild climate, you can camp year-round. From November through February, bring warm layers for days in the 50s and 60s. Evenings are cool and foggy year round, so a jacket is a must.
