Discover the magic of Slide Ranch spending the night overlooking the Pacific Ocean in one of our luxuriously outfitted tents! Enjoy your outdoor oasis fully furnished and styled with rugs, one or two full-size beds, high-quality linens, decorative pillows and a nightstand, a lantern and outdoor lights. There are also picnic tables in the area. Slide Ranch offers glamping so we can offer full scholarships to students for summer camps and other programs throughout the year. We really appreciate your support! Upon your arrival, we will provide roomy wheelbarrows to easily bring your personal items to our Dome Campsite area which overlooks the Pacific Ocean (about 10 minutes, mostly-flat hike). Type of accommodation: Bell style tent, sleeps up 2-4 people. Check in 2pm / Check out 10am Food is not included in tent rental but often there is a nearby dining option. Let us know if you would like more information. Please note that we do not have showering facilities or flush toilets. Porta-potties or composting toilets are available around the property. Water in all Slide Ranch taps is potable. Camp fires are not allowed in the Dome Campsite area. Slide Ranch is located on the Marin coast, on land that has a rich history in connecting people to food. The Miwok once fished and foraged for food at this site, and in the late 19th century Portuguese dairy farmers purchased the land and produced milk and butter for residents of San Francisco. In 1969, 134 acres of this fertile coastline were rescued from commercial development and purchased by the Nature Conservancy. The Slide Ranch nonprofit organization was established in 1970, becoming one of the first Park Partners in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area.

Best Night of Sleep EVER!
We recently spent a night at Slide Ranch in Tent #1 to check it out. We'd seen those tents on our hike so long -- it was nice to finally experience ocean front glamping at Slide! We woke up around midnight and went outside to enjoy the glorious sky and moonlight! Despite the cold fog and windy evening, the tent was so warm and cozy. We had the BEST night of sleep we've had in a long time -- the linens and bed was so so comfortable and warm. Slide gives you a table and lantern. Our lantern didn't hold its charge so check it early or bring your own lights. Luckily, we brought our own little lantern and headlamps. Slide doesn't offer their dinners right now/anymore, so they recommend bringing picnic items to pack in and out, which worked out totally fine -- we ate at a nearby picnic bench but bundled up in the wind! We weren't sure the status of the privy and bathroom logisitics, but the privy was clean and totally low stress. All those logistics worked out totally fine! I would absolutely recommend this to a friend, but bring layers and a trash bag(s)!

Oceanfront glamping!!
Margaret and I LOVED the location! Jessie and the team were friendly and so accommodating! All that and we’re helping to support a great cause! Did we mention the goats, sheep, rabbits and owls? We definitely recommend this spot to anyone looking to getaway!!

Good time, except the bugs
Beautiful space and view. Loved the trails easily accessible from the tents. Beds were comfortable and cozy too! Unfortunately, our tent had about a hundred earwigs in it; they were under the beds, in the sheets, and on the ground despite us having kept the tent sealed up until bed. We spent about an hour trying to get rid of them and still had some in the sheets in the morning.

Slide ranch was amazing. I am first time camper and I had a great time at the ranch. Damien gave a great tour telling us about the history of the ranch and interesting facts about the animals on the ranch and the vegetation around. The ranch is in serene surroundings, and the glamping tents are very comfortable for someone who has never done camping before. The trails within the ranch are breathtaking. I highly recommend visiting.

Powerful cause + ocean magic 🌊✨🌎
Slide Ranch is an incredible non-profit that teaches upcoming generations about wildlife, ranching, farming and how these systems can all live together in harmony. Their team is dedicated, passionate, and committed to educating future generations on a better way to live with the earth. It’s a real pleasure to support their powerful work while also staying at this insanely gorgeous glampsite on a private bluff over the Pacific Ocean. They also were offering one of their famous farm to table dinners the night we came, the food was delicious and the view of the sun setting into the ocean wasn’t bad either :) The history of Slide Ranch is fascinating. Original funding was provided by Jerry Garcia of the Grateful Dead, and I believe their work today continues to support this movement to push our culture forward towards a better future for all of life. Thank you Maika, Damien, Elena and team for all your important work for our people and our planet!!
