OrangeRay, home of Pixie's Place Animal Sanctuary & Hospice was founded in 2007, when I left L.A. for the forest by the river to create, and to expand my shamanic pursuits. Being that Three Rivers was home to the socialist Kaweah Colony in the 1800's; which helped in the founding of Sequoia National Park; the area is rich in history. Poet John Muir was enchanted and inspired by this area; Walt Disney fell under her spell as well when he envisioned a "Swiss Chalet" style resort which never came to fruition. The water wars of California began right here; gold rush...right here! "Kaweah" is the name given by the Indians for the sound the Crow makes. Three Rivers literally sits on slabs of quartz crystal, making rock hunting superb! As an energy practitioner, the quartz heightens the healing process; as well as creating an energy vortex. My property sits on an area that was once an Indian village, and then the school house for the children of the pioneers. There was a huge Hare Krishna Colony up here in the 60-70's. As a photographer and filmmaker, the lighting up here is amazing! The night skies literally pulsate with their celestial canopy. A great spot to sky watch as well!

Escape to be Found
Wendi’s home is quite the experience. From openness to clear star struck nights. This is the place to be for your technological detox. We arrived from LA into Three Rivers and were astonished by the animals, the vast options of relaxing spaces on the property. We enjoyed hanging out on the hammock to going down to the river, to watching the stars at night. And yes.. we did see a suspicious object in the sky… 🤭 I would recommend bundling up at night if you’re staying in the tent. Make sure to have your butane to cook outside. I would highly recommend if you’re looking to get away this is the spot. Wendi is like your aunt, your older cousin, or even your grandmother. She’s absolutely welcoming and provides a safe space to her guest. Optional: My girlfriend and I partook in a healing session as well which was separate from our stay but was worth exploring especially with the crazy years we recently experienced. I would highly recommend. This is only one of many adventures and I’m a true fan. Thank you again Wendi.

Great stay at camper!
I had a lovely stay at Wendi's caravan in her backyard, it is cosy and has great decorations. Wendi is such a nice and open person, loved talking to her and listen to her great stories. If you love animals, you'll love staying here! It is also closeby the entrance of Sequoia national park.

Amazing Vibe
Not only did Wendi welcome us with open arms and showed us around, the animals also welcomed us pretty well and made it a special location. If you are an animal lover and love the stars go see Wendi! My girlfriend and I definitely will be back as she really made it special for us. Thanks Wendi!

Magical camping spot.
Wendi is so welcoming. Her place is beautiful, the animals she cares for are very special. Loved the tipi. Comfortable bed. Wendi makes sure you have everything you need. It's a very magical place. Sleeping to the sound of the river...

A warm retreat - will be back!
Had a wonderful time at "Pixie's Place". Wendi was a very welcoming and knowledgeable host. Her property was even prettier than the pictures. The accommodations were comfortable. I loved the little cabin retreat/reading nook and the cooking station. And plenty of little curated spots throughout the property to relax and soak in the natural surroundings and listen to the river (which was unfortunately slowing to a trickle in late July). Such great energy there. The pens of goats, cats, ducks, chickens, etc. are a fun element and not at all a nuisance. It was comforting to hear them and interact them during the stay and sweet to watch Wendi take such good care of them. And I saw lots of wild turkeys and deer wandering through the property, too. Three Rivers is adorable with plenty of great food/supply options, and so quick/easy to get into the park. Will definitely come back.

This was such an amazing setup and the host was so accommodating and nice. There are so many cats that are very friendly, a lot of space near the camper and very cool decor around the entire property. This is conveniently located near Sequoia too making it easily accessible.

My partner and I are so so grateful that we were able to stay here. Wendi is one of the kindest souls I have come across and I can't wait to return. She was such an attentive host and anticipated all our needs. The place us beautiful, we saw so many shooting stars at night, and the animals are so lovely and welcoming (we spent the night cuddling the cutest cat). Our only regret is not staying longer. If you are fortunate enough to be able to spend some time here, make sure to take a dip in the stream out back.

Everything was amazing! First I'll start with the amazing host, Wendi. She is welcoming and so accommodating. Then her gorgeous property. With the river in the backyard and animals that live there. I can't forget to mention the location. So close to the Sequoias. I can go on and on. But I will let you book and see for yourself.

Wendi's place is awesome! She is a great host and beautiful human. Very responsive to questions. The property is so close to town but feels miles away. We will for sure be back.

Wendi's place is magical and filled with good energies. It was perfect for my trip, where I spent the early day hiking around Sequoias and King's Canyon NP and coming after to relax at the place. Wendi and her animals are great hosts, helpful, kind, and super friendly. I would recommend this place to be a perfect place to disconnect and also visit the national parks nearby!

10/10 recommend
We loved staying in Wendy’s camper! Wendy was such a gracious host and made us feel right at home. Her animals were a real standout and we loved hanging with all of them. The spot was so beautiful with so much to offer. It was a highlight of our trip and we cannot recommend it enough!

A wonderful experience
We loved our stay with Wendi, who was the consummate host. We felt like we were staying with a friend — she gave us a warm welcome and made us feel comfortable. We slept super well and very much enjoyed the company of the cats, goats, and geese around the property that is next to a beautiful river. We were also lucky to meet Alice Cooper the rabbit and give him a cuddle. Thank you Wendi for your hospitality and sharing your home with us ❤️

Camping oasis for some solitude
I was looking for a sacred quiet space where I could be in nature to grieve the recent loss of my corgi Mocha of 16 years. I was drawn to her cozy oasis and it was everything I needed. Wendi was very warm and welcoming. She introduced me to her animals and the colorful beautiful vibe she created on her property along the river. Trailer was very cozy. There were plenty of places to sit to write and reflect and have creative time with my ukulele, journal, and sketchpad. I also received a healing session from her with crystals and sound healing and felt cleansed. Highly recommend!

Magical stay by the river
This was my second time staying at Wendi’s. So much to be found here. It’s a great way to get out and removed from the city. Wendi herself is full of kindness and happy to do what she can to make your stay comfortable and special.

My girlfriend and I had the best weekend with Wendi in her camper! She is an amazing host who goes out of her way to make sure each guest has the best experience. Her Hipcamp is a one of a kind experience with all the amazing animals and beautiful camper. Wendi is very kind and so welcoming. I wish we could have stayed longer!

Very lovely place with a lot of attention to detail. We had so many spots on the property which we enjoyed spending time - even if the river was dry! The picnic tables spread throughout and the shed with the library were some of our favorite spots. The animals (cats, goats, turkey vultures in the trees!) were lovely. When arriving, Wendi gave thorough instructions on how to work around her property - doors, showers, etc. However, a few of the amenities were a bit worn out (which we don’t mind at all!) and some unfortunately broke on us when using. When asking for further instructions or assistance we were met with some hostility which made it hard to feel welcome. In all, Wendi had a lovely place and it was a great place to rest and relax - but it we felt a bit out of place.

Wendi is a wonderful host and was so welcoming from the start! Her animals are all so sweet, especially the friendly cats. This hipcamp site was very calming and perfect for our weekend trip to Sequoia NP. Be sure to check out the stars at this site--they were incredible! Thank you for everything Wendi!

Love the cats
Wendi and her cats were amazing! We woke up at sunrise each morning and went into the Sequoia National Park and it was sooo close and there were no lines. Wendi lets her guests use the bathroom and kitchen in her house and is super welcoming.

Peaceful Getaway
My brother and I had a great weekend at Pixie's Place. Wendi is so kind and is like a mother to all of her guests. The teepee was awesome and super spacious. I loved the little attached library also, my brother actually ended up falling asleep in it one of the nights lol. Perfect distance to the sequoias and feels a lot more private than camping at a public campsite. Would love to return in the Spring sometime to be able to play and relax in Wendi's river.

Magical Stay
I cannot say enough wonderful things about Wendi, her sweet animals, and her magical property. My boyfriend and I had a beautiful time at Pixie’s Place. The trailer was so cozy and thoughtfully equipped and the bathroom inside Wendi’s home was a welcome luxury. Although the river was dry during our visit, Slick Rock is so close and a great spot for a dip. Wendi’s place is also convenient to the National park and the sweet little village of Three Rivers. Our highlights were watching the stars nightly, loving on all the sweet cats, and listening to Wendi’s fascinating stories and wisdom. We cannot wait to return :)

My brother and I had the most magical trip to the Sequoias thanks to Wendi and her adorable four-footed family. Wendi is a rare gem who was so generous and kind with her space, and a real joy to connect with. We are so looking forward to visiting you again soon Wendi. Sending all our love to you!

Vintage Rainbow Garden is exactly as described. The camper is well decorated, comfortable and Wendi did her best to make it cool during our summer stay. Wendi is an accommodating host and the cats will most likely come say, " hello." This was a great spot to stay for my trip to Sequoia NP. Cell reception was great and I was able to get WiFi, if you are interested in being connected. Read all the directions carefully of what is provided so you know what to expect and what to bring. Wendi is very clear in her directions.
