You must visit!
My boyfriend and I spent our 1 year anniversary here and Julie & Ray made it so special for us! They were very hospitable, welcoming, and accommodating. They showed us around and made us feel comfortable. The nature was gorgeous and the spot that it was in was private and tucked in. We hiked and Bella took us to the trail she usually goes on. I will definitely recommend this to my family & friends and i look forward to coming here again myself!

Hidden gem with the kindest hosts!
We absolutely loved our camping experience at Bella's land. Not only is the campground filled of hidden gems, like little hammocks, nooks, and outdoor cooking & lounging spaces, but the hosts were sweet enough to cook breakfast for those staying at the campgrounds every morning. And they don't skimp on these breakfasts! - We're talking sausage croissants, peach french toasts, and more. It's a little community of different camp sites on the property so it also facilitates a nice communal living experience. Super dog friendly and we loved meeting everyone on the campground - humans and animals alike :)

Great site and hosts
The campsite was amazing, with lots of shade, and the hosts were super friendly. We used the bbq grill and outdoor shower, and had breakfast at the house in the morning, and everything was great. As stated in the listing, it is a bit of a hike from your car to your tent; we didn’t mind, but be aware. Overall, 5 stars out of 5!

camping under the redwoods
Beautiful serene sight in the redwoods. The hosts were really amazing and accommodating, even brought us breakfast to our campsite . This is not a place if you just want to drive up and start camp. You will be carrying your things up or down trails to get to your camp spot. Each campsite is really unique. Also near to Alice’s restaurant which is a great place for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Lots of amenities coffee, tea , breakfast, use of the main house kitchen and bbq grill. Very accommodating to pets and off leash acceptable.
