Amazing views
Hipcampers say this spot has amazing views.
Surrounded by cooperate timberland,  it feels like there are no neighbors!  There is not a house in sight but the the ridge views seem to go on forever!  - There is a simple latrine at each site. A full bath house with a flush toilet and hot shower is available next to the main house. A water spigot is attached to the main house. - Spare camping supplies are available by the bath house if you forget something! Ask ahead if you need to borrow a specific item. More about the property: I built my home high upon a southern ridge. Watching the river of coastal fog flow in and out below me is one of the most wonderful views to behold! I have 30 acres of land to explore and camp upon in the surrounding redwood forest. 10 miles east are Montgomery Woods redwood preserve with GIANT trees, and a little farther, perhaps a mile is the famous Orr Hot Springs Resort. If you drive a half hour west from my land you will be in the coastal Mendocino village. We are marijuana friendly!! Thus, we have created more of an adult oriented atmosphere. one last note: We recently made separate listings for different sites. See campsite #1 for reviews. Guests love staying here "What a fantastic experience. I arrived to Cosmo’s super late after a long day going up the coast. It was a last minute book that morning, if I remember right - my campsite had fallen through. His directions were spot on, and very kindly he stayed up to take me to my site and help me get set up, even going so far as to light me a fire. His property was easily navigable in the dark, and my two wheel drive made it fine. We talked for a while - what a cool guy. He was able to give me recommendations from a friend of what to do during the next legs of my trip, which was great and really did make a difference for the rest of my week. I cooked my dinner and sat stunned looking at some of the best stargazing I’ve had in a long time. When I woke up I realized that I had been sleeping next to a mountainside view - this was site 3. Talk about the best surprise I’ve gotten in a while unzipping a tent. The clouds were gathered in the valley and as I ate breakfast I got to watch the sun slowly clear then out. It was unbelievable. Before I left, Cosmo let me use his indoor solar-heated shower and told me all about his projects to build his own home and roads and move towards a more sustainable future. Overall this is really the best of what I imagine hipcamp has to offer - kind property owners & unique individuals who care about their guests while also allowing them to have their own experience. If I’m ever near Mendocino I will gladly make the trip inland to stay at his property again."

Hike in camping experience
Cosmo’s land was peaceful, remote, and quirky. We enjoyed staying in his rustic cabin - cozy fireplace, solar lights, and comfortable bed. Cosmo was quick to communicate with us and trusted us to find our way around the land even though he was away for the weekend. The bathhouse hot water wasn’t working while we were there (Cosmo gave us a heads up). We opted to make a visit into Mendocino (which was only a 40 min drive) to soak in the hot tubs at Sweetwater Eco Spa.

campsite #2, (Tent/RVs)
Kind and communicative camp host
Unfortunately we had a Vanagon breakdown and never made it to the campsite. We give Cosmo five stars because he responded to our messages right away, tried to help us figure out what the vehicle problem was from afar, and gave us a refund even though he didn’t have to. Next time we’re ready for a trip, we’ll reserve again!

site 3. Pet friendly with views
Cosmo was a great host. He was flexible, communicative and kind. He’s made small personal touches at the site to make you feel welcome and truly hosted on his beautiful land. We went to bed under a full moon, and woke to fog rising from the surrounding redwoods in the valley. What a great place. Thank you, Cosmo. All the best in the new year.

Cosmo is a very kind host who puts constant effort into improving his camp sites. The day before I left he planted some onions at my site, so that in the future other campers can have some fresh onions. He's is teriffic.
