Blue Bell Dream Tent
Just the best place
This place is a haven…an absolutely incredible gem tucked away. We stayed in one of the yurts and we were in heaven; we had everything we needed. Season was the most gracious and generous host, she even took time out of her busy everyday schedule to talk to us about the farming she does on her property and the history of the area. We really and truly hope we can come back again someday. Thank you so much!!

The look out bluff
I loved this impromptu stay. Season and her up Roscoe were so fun to hang with. Loved having the place to myself again and being able to enjoy the private swimming holes in the river. The site is large and close to the road, but private. You will hear road noise, so if you are a light sleeper, I’d choose another site. I didn’t even pitch a tent. I just slept in the back of my car and backed in so I could have the view of the river and trees.

Eel River Paradise !
Seasons place is amazing. She is such an attentive host and provided our big group with everything we could have hoped for. The bluff is great if you have a lot of people and don’t want to feel like you have to be too quiet as it’s away from the main property. It’s right by the entrance to the river too so you are only a few minutes from paradise. I would absolutely recommend this site and definitely plan to be back!

Five Sisters Farm Deluxe bell tent
Escape into the redwoods
My partner and I enjoyed our stay with Season! Our tent came with a super comfy queen sized bed and Season gave us great recommendations on where to eat and hike. Our first night we swam in the river bend on the property. There were a few other campers onsite; everyone was respectful of each other’s space. We went hiking in the early morning to avoid the scorching daytime temps during this California heatwave. Our campsite is right across from the barn where the kitchen supplies are, and a short walk from two portapotties.

The look out bluff
It was a beautiful camping site with a beautiful view of the river-worth the hike to be in the water if you’re up for it! Their dog Rosco greets you & helps you get settled in! (He’s great!) There is poison oak due to this time of year-be cautious! Lots of privacy at our site & lots to do in the surroundings area. Great host as well!
