Welcome to Hill Top Vineyard, nestled in the mountains of Santa Cruz; this breathtaking 30+ acre retreat is the ideal getaway. We offer 3 RV/tent sites and 2 glamping domes. The glamping domes share a full bathroom equipped with a hot water shower and flushing toilet. There is no toilet available for the RV/tent sites so campers are required to bring their own. Featuring four acres of vineyard, two acres of seasonal pond, winding trails, and sweeping vistas of the surrounding mountains. Just imagine waking up slowly with a cup of coffee from one of the local coffee shops while you watch the wildlife come to life. Evenings are best spent enjoying the stunning sunsets in front of the 2 acre pond. Located just 15 miles from the world-famous beaches of Santa Cruz that have some of the most sought-after surf breaks, and if beaches aren't your thing, Henry Cowell State park is less than ten miles away and has some of the gorgeous hikes in all of Santa Cruz County. Big Basin State Park is a few towns over and is one of the few places in the world where you can see coastal redwoods. The location also offers easy access to silicon valley and the greater bay area if you're interested in a day trip to the city. Amenities include RV/oversized vehicle parking, private trails, and more! Book your stay today at Hill Top Vineyard to experience the ultimate getaway, where you'll find peace in nature's embrace.

Dome Site 5 - Hilltop Vineyard
Camping in a dome
Camping on Aaron’s land in the dome was a super unique experience! The site felt pretty secluded and provided a lot of amenities that we otherwise would have had to bring (running water, seating, firewood, etc). We arrived at the peak of a heat wave, but having a/c in the dome made it very bearable. The bathroom and shower is also very clean and made for an enjoyable experience!

Dome Site 4 - Hilltop Vineyard
Nice little spot that’s not too far away to feel like you’ve gotten away from the city. The dome was cool but an absolute greenhouse in the heat, thankfully they installed an AC and heater in case it’s cold! The bathroom is nice and clean with a solid toilet and shower. I would recommend bringing something to mitigate insects and something to do as there is only a fire pit (with firewood) provided to have fun with.

Dome Site 5 - Hilltop Vineyard
Beautiful Vineyard and Stars
My fiance and I recently wanted to do a trip to Santa Cruz to hang out for the day and to do a camping trip. We came across this location that was pretty close by and thought how fun it would be to stay inside a transparent dome for the night; turns out we really enjoyed it. Driving up to the location was really easy to find with the directions given. The accommodations were really well thought out with a fully functional bathroom a few feet away from the domes and a few fire pits and tables to enjoy the outdoor weather. Once night came, the domes are pointed at just the right angle to be able to see the moon slowly drift across the sky. I would definitely go again and bring more friends to enjoy the stay.

Site 2 - Hilltop Vineyard
Lovely, basic spot
It was so great to find this little gem last minute! The drive from San Jose in our 24’ Sprinter van was epic, but would NOT recommend that route for a longer RV. The site was one of three on an open, grassy area just off the driveway, next to a sweet little vineyard. We didn’t need any amenities or privacy for our quick overnight, but for a longer stay this might not be the place. The tranquil quiet was punctuated only by the sound of song birds, quail and wild turkeys. Foggy morning was perfect for sleeping in. So very grateful

Relax with the grapes
Site offered a nice view of hills, trees, and a lovely vineyard. It was a quiet area to relax and enjoy the outdoors. The site was easy to find.
