Located within 45 minutes of the wine country and 2 miles from the coast, our property is 400 acres of rolling hills and redwood groves, with a creek running along its base. With miles of trails meandering through quiet woods and meadows, you will be able to revel in the tranquility of a private preserve, without sacrificing easy access to some of Sonoma County's most famous attractions. A hundred years ago, this land was used to graze sheep. Remnants of the old fence lines can still be seen in places, along with old cement troughs. Since then, the land has been left to its own devices, passing through many hands, most famously owned by two brothers in the 1980's who built a truly amazing tree house in the forest which has been featured in several magazine articles. It was revamped and updated in 2016 by a master craftsman, using fallen redwood logs found on the property and is now a unique structural work of art, available for overnight stays. We produce 100% grass fed, dry-aged beef on our certified organic pastures and have a store on site if you would like to purchase delicious steaks, ribs, ground beef for hamburgers or some roasts to take home. Our cattle graze on the native grasses, never grain, and drink only water produced from our own springs. We also raise Kiko meat goats and produce pastured, certified organic duck eggs on a commercial basis. Whether it's surfing at sandy beaches, award-winning clam chowder, a wine tour, horseback riding or a hot air balloon ride you're after, you won't have far to drive if you make our ranch your base camp. You may see a family of deer appear suddenly, or a few Scottish Highland cows which we allow to roam freely over the property. There are over twenty species of wild birds that grace this protected spot, so bring your binoculars! A portion of your fee goes towards protecting native flora and fauna as part of our private wildlife preservation program. A limited number of private, widely spaced camp spots are available for visitors. The Eagles' Nest Treehouse (mentioned above) is very isolated and you may or may not even be aware that there are other people within miles of you. For those who value nature, seclusion, quiet and the artistry of old growth redwood, this is the place for you.

Redwood Camp #3
My husband and I had our very first camping experience at Salmon Creek Ranch Redwood #3 and we had such a wonderful time. Redwood #3 was the most private and perfect for camping with a pup. The redwood deck was gorgeous. The property has so much to offer including lots of great hiking, beautiful open meadow and a gorgeous creek. Duck eggs were amazing! This will forever be one of our favorite places to camp. We will definitely be back!

Redwood Camp #1
Great spot.
Great location. The site had a table and fire ring in a grove surrounded by trees, and a clearing to hang out in during the day. You are relatively close to site #2, but otherwise very secluded. The road to get down was steep and rutted, but a vehicle with 4wd had no issues.

Redwood Camp #2
Peaceful spot among the redwoods
Lovely place! So peaceful and beautiful! We loved having a swing near our site and both sunny and shaded spots. Great to have picnic table and a fire ring! We stayed at sire number 2.

Creekside Camp #3
Great for camping with kids!
Very secluded, peaceful, fell asleep to birds, owls, and a babbling creek. We could hear the sound of goats and sheep and overall loved the campsite. Super close to the beach and Bodega. Perfect if you have little kids. We hope to return ASAP.

Eagle's Nest Treehouse Farmstay
Great experience
Staying at Eagles Nest treehouse is must do. The treehouse is so comfortable, cozy, well located and quiet. I will definitely be staying here again in the future. Be sure to buy some of the organic duck eggs at the mercantile, they were so delicious!
