Lucky Penny Laytonville is a thriving multi-generational family home and campground, dedicated to music, art, gardening, cooking, and family fun. Just 4 sites on 4 acres! Camping made easy with a FULLY OUTFITTED OPEN AIR OUTDOOR KITCHEN and HOT SHOWERS (not available in the coldest times of the year when pipes freeze). Kitchen includes sinks, refrigerator, stove, toaster oven, toaster, blender, espresso machine, coffee grinder, dishes, utensils, plates, pans, cutting boards, etc. If there's something you need and can't find it, we'll bring it out from our kitchen in the house. All you bring for meals is the food! NOTE: No grocery store in our little town so shop before you get here! CHECK WITH HOSTS about whether FIRES are currently allowed. Please LIMITED FIRES during Fire Season. Fire MUST be completely extinguished before you go to sleep at night. Firewood available for purchase. SMOKERS, please be super careful! LIBRARY OF TOYS, BOOKS, PUZZLES, AND GAMES. Around the property, there's plenty of cool forest shade, a park like lawn, and a sunny meadow. Find yourself a cozy spot on a sofa under the trees or in a hammock with a good book from our library. There's always a jigsaw puzzle out on one of the picnic tables by the pizza oven. We’ve got badminton and croquet, just ask. Enjoy looking at the stars through the telescope, just ask. Each campsite has a picnic table & benches. Outlets to CHARGE YOUR PHONE and DEVICES. Wifi in several places in town (1 mile). Fruit trees and extensive gardens dot the property. Feel free to pick a piece of fruit. We almost always have organic fresh eggs from the chickens, so just ask. We're in a wooded country neighborhood where lots of folks have dogs, so you might hear some barking and see some neighbors. Very occasionally we see a dog off leash. We ask that you keep your dogs on leash at all times, as we have cats and chickens and our neighbors have small children. Please respect our neighbors' privacy. We encourage you to enjoy the forest, but do be aware that there is poison oak. If you don't know what it looks like we can show you. Please arrive between Noon - 8pm. Text us your estimated arrival time and then when you're 15 minutes out, let us know you're getting close. Please try to get here by 8:00pm. However, you can prearranged for a late arrival in "Extras." We are flexible about check out time, if we do not have other campers arriving for your site. Just ask. We are flexible about cancelations. If you cancel 24 hours before check-in time (1pm), you get a full refund, automatically. Cancelling with less than 24 hours notice? We will refund you as follows: A booking of 2 or more days, you will be charged for only one day.

Under the Madrone (Max 10 campers)
This was a very sweet campsite. Great location, lovely outdoor shower, and I appreciated the host putting us in a different site in order to maximize space for everyone in the camp. Would stay again!

Under the Madrone (Max 10 campers)
What a delightful spot! We loved the charm, the decor, and eating farm fresh eggs that our 4 year old got to search for in the coop. Our host was fantastic and responsive. Only regret—we weren’t there during blackberry season!!!!

The Hidden Grove
My experience camping at Hillary's Land was truly enchanting. Nestled in a picturesque setting, with a whimsical charm. I loved the eco-friendly practices and earth consciousness setting of compostable toilets and open air showers. I enjoyed the shared kitchen facility, which fostered a sense of community as I connected with fellow campers. My 7-year-old daughter enjoyed a lot from gathering fresh eggs in the chicken coop to constructing imaginative structures with bricks and wood. The abundance of toys in the campground added an extra layer of delight to her experience. As a solo traveler accompanied by my daughter, I felt completely at ease and welcomed by the warm hospitality of Hillary and fellow campers. Our time at Hillary's Land was nothing short of magical, and I am already looking forward to returning for another unforgettable getaway."
