Amazing views
Hipcampers say this spot has amazing views.
Ettawa Springs Resort dates back to the 1920s and 30s like the fashionable resorts in the Cobb area where the rich and famous came to play. But Ettawa was oriented towards families and a more relaxed and rustic atmosphere. We are working hard to restore her to her former glory. We are excited to announce that we have a few campsites ready for use and will be adding more soon. We offer hot showers and flush toilets and some sites with running water. You can hike through our property to the Cobb Mountain Demonstration Forest or just enjoy the clean air and listen to the wind and the birds. On clear nights the stars put on an amazing show. Clear Lake is about 45 minutes away with all the fishing and water sports you could ask for. Harbin Hot Springs are 15 minutes away and they offer day passes for reasonable rates. We are located about 20 minutes outside of Middletown. Be aware that half of the road is dirt (and that's better than the asphalt half) all of it is fine for small cars, just take your time. The last 1/2 mile or so is a one lane road, so please be careful of opposing traffic and uneven surfaces. We cannot accommodate vehicles longer than 28’ on these roads. We offer California camping at its finest. Fresh air, whispering trees, amazing star fields . . . this can mean the less attractive side of nature as well. We have ticks, rattlesnakes, stinging things, poison oak, uneven trails and surfaces, and a bear on one ridge with mountain cats on the other (no sign of either in the campground). We keep the restroom stocked with tick spray and Tecnu for the poison oak, but please watch yourselves and especially children. Dogs are welcome, but should be kept on lead for their own protection and the comfort of others. We are fairly hands off in our hosting approach. Unless there's a question or problem, you likely won't see us. But we have people close by and are only a message away.

Great outdoor experience.
We loved it. Quiet and beautiful at night. A million stars. Only wish was if it wasn't soo hot last week. We saw deer, wild turkeys, prairie dogs and a red fox. Camp site was perfect.

The Glade Site 5
We were in glade site 5 which is a tongue that sticks out from a group of campsites so is more private. We had a 4 person and two person tent and there was just enough flat space for both. Great views and access to power for charging devices and water, trash/recycling. Two picnic tables were on site but not our site specifically so plan accordingly- two of the other sites had campers with families so it would have been helpful to bring our own tables (not a big deal as everyone was willing to share). Convenient to a very clean bath house that had shampoo and soap and it was fun walking around the property and checking out the old campsites that are being restored. About 35 min drive to Harbin. We came up via Cobb so beware of Google changing navigation - we ended up on a made of fire roads that took and hour to get down to Ettawa Springs Road - if you go past the Calfire station on a dirt road that’s the wrong (or perhaps I should say, most adventurous way). Would definitely stay here again!

Nice site in Lake County.
Enjoyed this site with camping friends who rented site #4 right next to us. This site had relatively flat sites that were a short walk away from the restroom/showers. Having a water spigot, power, and cool hanging lights made the experience even better. We were close to Lower Lake and Kelseyville to grab supplies if needed. Even closer to a location where we found some Lake County "diamonds" which the kids enjoyed.

Tent Site 8
We wish the site would have been more suitable for tents and not just VRs. The ground was pretty full of weeds which made cooking and chilling more difficult. However, the view was very nice and the site was really calm.

Nice campsite set up and nice views, close to Clearlake. Accessible restroom and water. The road is bumpy so recommend 4-wheel drive.

I can tell there’s been a big effort to rebuild the campsites, but without access to the creek or any clear trails to hike, we opted to leave after one night. We did find the leak in the water pipes easily and wish the hosts much luck in its repair.
