Creature comforts
Enjoy the comforts of home at some sites—including flush toilets, showers, and a kitchen.
As you enter into our little oasis, you'll see why we want to share the space. It is a great environment to get away from the city or pass through on your road trip. The driveway enters down to our creek-side camping where a hammock under a tree awaits a quiet reader or a bird watcher. It's just a 30 minute drive to the beach, a short walk to the neighborhood park- equipped with a playground, or a five minute drive to a local ecological reserve containing multiple trails. If you'd like to hang out on the property, we offer chairs and an umbrella with each campsite to lounge in while enjoying the fresh air and nature. In addition, we have a propane-powered fire pit, an outdoor food preparation area, and a flush toilet. Fun Fact: Harbison Canyon was named after John Stewart Harbison - aka the King of the Bee Keepers. He arrived with over one hundred colonies of bees in 1874 and within 7 years he became the worlds largest honey producer. Today there are just a few bees in the area.

My partner, sister and I tent camped right by the creek and it was a lovely nature getaway! We heard frogs, and owls and fell asleep to the sound of the babbling brook! Laura was a wonderful welcoming host and gave very clear instructions. The outdoor kitchen and propane campfire were other wonderful highlights! We hope to visit again soon!

Nice Escape from Reality
It was a cute little setting that seemed a worlds away but is so close to everything. Kitchen is awesome too!

First time using hipcamp. Used Airbnb and VRBO hundreds of times, but wanted to take our small camper out, and Laura's place was great! It's in a neighborhood (quiet at night, with a lot of stars), but feels secluded and surrounded by nature, including a cool winding stream. Would definitely recommend staying here to camp in a tent or the tiny home cabin looks really nice, too! Bathroom is shared, but an easy walk, and a cool outdoor area to cook, eat or sit by the gas fire pit. 10/10

I truck camped here and spot was level. Bonus was use of a flush toilet. I would stay here again.
