Highlands Resort is an adult property that has been around since the early 1920s when it was known as Highland Park Lodge. Like many of the resorts in the area, it began by offering platform tent camping and began adding cabins during the 1930s and 1940s. In those days, folks took the ferry from San Francisco to Sausalito where trains headed to the “vacation playland” villages of Guerneville, Rio Nido and Monte Rio. The river villages have been a vacation magnet since the late 1880s reaching a peak in the 1920s and 30s. (Fun fact: 25,000 people came to the river for the July 4th weekend in 1925!) In those days, visitors came for the natural beauty, to play in and on the river, eat in great restaurants and party in the bars. Clearly not much has changed. In 1979, the resort was declining when Bill and Steve bought it and gave it new life. This was at the beginning of the area’s revival as a tourist destination, especially for LGBTQ+ guests during the 1980s. They are credited with the wonderful landscaping at the resort. In 1995, Lynette and Ken bought the Highlands Resort and ran it until June 2021, keeping with the traditions of the past. They had been hospitality professionals for more than 30 year -- warm, casual, generous, occasionally sarcastic and always wanting their visitors to have a wonderful time. We love that they paved the way for us. We hope past and future guests become our repeat guests and new extended family. The Highlands has always attracted a loyal following of visitors looking for a quiet, relaxing place that is friendly and fun. The cabins capture a bit of the 1940s and 50s with vintage chrome and Formica tables and chairs, custom-cut and inlaid linoleum floors, and vacation brochures blown up as art in the cabins. As we continue to improve our rooms and suites, new changes will come. The biggest addition is our new glamping area - Coyote Camp. With a nod to the past, we’re bringing back platform tent camping. We know you’ll love partaking in this long-standing Russian River tradition.

Glamping with a pool!
We loved Highland resort, great tents & great staff in a wonderful environment. Would go back anytime! The only thing that could improve a little bit would be the breakfast. But other than that it was a really good stay for us!

Quick 1 night getaway
Love the feeling of being in the woods but only a couple minutes walk to downtown! You can drink all you want and just walk back to the Glamp site. We went at the end of Sept and even though the pool is "heated" it is barely tempid. It was CHILLY in the tent in the AM but they provide these wool blankets that helped you stay warm,.The firepit is lovely in the AM with the light breakfast snacks that are included. The tents are close together, there are porta potties near the tents and if you want to use the enclosed, clean, building bathrooms (that have a shower inside) it is a walk away from the tent area. The outdoor shower was nice! don't forget your slippers! Everyone we met or walked by were SO polite and just NICE. Will be back!

The tent was super cozy and the facilities were amazing! It was so lovely to be among the redwood trees and also be able to relax with a pool. We loved the breakfast and appreciated all of the extra blankets at night!

Great stay. Extremely accommodating and exceptionally clean. Close to town but a remote feel! Tents were close together, limiting the amount of privacy.

Perfect Glamping Hidden Gem
The Coyote Camp experience is not one that will be soon forgotten! The friendly faces, beautiful campsites, and plentiful amenities led to an amazing experience for my partner and I. We thoroughly enjoyed strolling through the foliage and relaxing around the (propane) fireplace while filling up on some delicious host made zucchini bread! We can’t recommend this hidden gem enough, and are excited to make this a destination on future trips through the area.

A fabulous relaxing retreat
I can’t say enough positive things about our stay at coyote camp! Kathy at the front desk was the most warm and generous person. I felt welcomed into the establishment and provided with every and anything I could possibly think of needing. We will most definitely be back!

Comfortable and convenient
We had the most relaxing and luxurious glamping experience at Coyote Camp. The staff were extremely welcoming and accommodating. The king size bed and linens were very comfortable and we appreciated all the extra touches like blankets, soft towels, lantern and access to the heated pool! We would definitely visit again.

Loved glamping here! It is relaxing and beautiful. The pool and BBQ were great as was our tent. It's a bit expensive for glamping but still enjoyed it.

Glamping with my Gal Pal
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Coyote Camp and would love to come back in the future. Whether that's with just a friend or a group of friends. Everything was so clean and well decorated! The bathrooms were well stocked with shampoo, conditioner, and hand soap. And I couldn't believe how beautiful and welcoming the lounge area was made. Their staff was both friendly and helpful. It made our trip so much fun! I couldn't believe they even offer complimentary breakfast for their guests, which is so rare nowadays. If you love being outdoorsy but need the comforts of home to sleep at night this is the place to be.

Wonderful hidden gem!
My husband and I wanted a last minute getaway - and this lovely property was just what we needed! Checking in was a breeze and everyone we met was so friendly. The tent was clean and the bed was super comfy. Lots of seating and secluded sitting areas all over the property. We even got to lounge by the pool after checkout which was a great bonus! Highly recommend this glamping experience and we will definitely be back.

Redwood fairy magic
I want to give it a negative review so this magical gem of place doesn’t become so popular it’s hard to book a night! So happy to have found this place. Had an incredibly comfortable and welcoming experience. Love the staff, loved meeting our fellow guests and learning more about history of the place. Looking forward to booking stays next spring and summer when the tents are back.

This place is a gem
We had the greatest time! This entire property is very serene, welcoming, and well taken care of. The tent was adorable, pristine, with just enough amenities we would need. We took advantage of the heated pool and the great BBQ area. We love camping deep in the woods, but I’ve got to say there is something really lovely about sleeping on a comfy king bed in a tent and waking up to a delicious breakfast made for you! Every staff person we interacted with was kind and helpful. What a gem of a place. We will definitely be back!

So beautiful with lots of amenities
Coyote camp scout tent is part of the larger highlands resort. The entire space is gorgeous, campgrounds included. The tent we stayed in had a king sized bed that was so comfy. The resort also had indoor and outdoor showers equipped with shampoo, conditioner and body wash. They also served a delicious healthy breakfast in the morning. I would 100% stay here again!

Hi, my partner and I stayed at coyote camp for our 3rd anniversary and it was even better that we expected. The place is new, everything was clean and well kept. The bed was very comfy, the tent was spacious and it had everything you could need, light, a rack where you can hang clothes, they also provided extra blankets and towels. All the staff was super friendly and helpful. We used the outdoor showers because we didn’t want to loose that experience and it was great. But they also have Indoor showers and those are also kept very clean. It is a great option if you want to have all the comforts and still feel that you are camping and in connection with nature.
