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.

Beautiful in Bodega
We stayed at site #3, which is located on a wonderful field surrounded by big trees and creeks. It’s pretty remote beyond Bodega, I’d advise to make the drive when it’s still light out. The site is clean and we will be back! Fun community vibes with other campers, too.

Site 10 - Finley Camp
Site 10 is kind of exposed at the bottom of the driveway, but with neighboring sites 9 and 11 tucked away it still felt quite private with the benefit of being closest to the Portapottie. Having more sun was great after a cold/freezing night. I had no trouble going to and from the campground as a base for sightseeing in Bodega Bay/Sonoma Coast.

A fantastic outdoor Thanksgiving
We came for a 4 days outdoor thanksgiving stay with the kids, this was our second stay at Finley Camp. What we love: Large spacious sites, impeccably maintained. Convenient and clean porta potties. The best part : being able to have a camp fire in the provided fire pit and ample supply of firewood (which Daniel kindly provided in advance, though there is a self serve pile with a venmo payment option) oh and did we mention the available steaks straight from the ranch? Daniel is an amazing and very responsive host! Any downside? It gets very cold in the canyon, we had a layer of frost every morning during our Thanksgiving break. Come prepared...

Site 11 - Finley Camp
Beautiful star gazing, well marked signage/directions, well manicured campsite, and a bundle of firewood waiting for us made this stay a breeze.
