Welcome to the Enchanted Forest Retreat! We are a meditation retreat center with 45 acres of some of the most gorgeous redwoods in the Santa Cruz mountains to enjoy hiking, creeks and small water fall exploration, mountain biking, wildlife viewing, star gazing, relaxation, meditation and more. Our campground has running water from a natural spring, Men and Women's Restrooms each with 2 toilets and 1 hot water shower, laundry shed with sink and hot water, and an outdoor amphitheater, (the kitchen and washer/dryer is Staff Only not for campers). We have meditation teaching at the amphitheater and campers are welcomed to attend for free. 4-6 guests maximum with 1 car included in the nightly rate. Each additional vehicle is $15 per day and will be added at checkout once you add the correct number of vehicles you will be bringing. You can bring a maximum of 2 cars. PLEASE NOTE, we do not have a trash service on site, we require all campers to PACK OUT THEIR GARBAGE with them! Pets are $10 per day, 1 pet per group ONLY. Please add this as an extra at the time of booking, you will see the option to add extras once you begin the checkout process. Dogs must be on leash at all times! Quiet hours are 10pm-8am. No drugs of any kind including marijuana allowed. No loud music allowed. This is a private property so no visitors are allowed, only paid guests. Our onsite staff will go around and enforce the rules. NOTICE REGARDING RVs and TRAILERS: While we can not offer hookups, theoretically we have no problem with RVs, the road is steep in a couple of places getting down to the campground and VERY narrow in one spot (10ft). If you feel you're willing to take this risk (we won't be held liable), you're welcome to reach out to us and we can see if the site is good for RV/trailers. Only sites 8, 12 and 5 are good for trailers. No vehicle can drive into Site 7, 9, 10 and 11 (the parking area is separate). Other sites may be ok with small trailers. Check with the host. Any trailer larger than 20ft, take your own risk, there is a narrow point only 9ft wide.

Site 7 - Enchanted Forest Retreat w/Showers
Road trip east to west coast 2024.
This is a great hipcamp on the side of a mountain surrounded by redwoods! We drove our sprinter van to this place. Adventure for sure but once accomplished no problem doing again and again! Short ride to Santa Cruz! Hot Showers were amazing! Others commented on the cleanliness of the showers. It鈥檚 camping! It is exactly what I expect when I鈥檓 camping! Super sweet stay! Jessica is easy to work with! Directions were fine! We would return here and recommmed! 馃槑

Secluded Tiny House 1 in Redwoods
We absolutely loved staying here!! So peaceful and the tiny house is right next to a creek that you can hear from the house. Picnic table was great, nice to take a hot shower, loved the giant Redwoods and to have bedding already provided. I will say we didn鈥檛 really see anyone the whole time and there鈥檚 no service so I recommend downloading the directions and check-in instructions ahead of time.

Site 1 - Enchanted Forest Retreat w/Showers
Easy to get to, decent bathroom
The campsite was nice and place itself was easy to find. I was grateful for the beautiful surroundings and a nice shower. The last 3 miles before the place are bumpy. The steep and narrow road that someone mentioned doesn鈥檛 start until you enter the property and it鈥檚 easier going down. I wouldn鈥檛 recommend Site 1 for a low clearance car. I drove a small campervan and it was tricky. The drive into and out of the parking spot is on a slant. The narrow road will also catch your tire should you go off of it trying to back in/out. Other than that it was a good time.

Site 8A Shaded - Enchanted Forest
Beautiful!
The site was absolutely gorgeous! Completely surrounded by red woods and each campsite was pretty secluded from one another, a bit off the beaten path so the stars were incredible! The only down side was we ended up getting to the campsite a little after sunset and driving up there was a little difficult in the dark, as well as finding our campsite, but overall a great experience!
