12 Acres in the Redwoods. Creekside. We have a private driveway with lots of secluded Space. lots of chickens usually an endless supply of eggs for breakfast. Small campfires available. Cabin renters have access to Hot showers, wood-burning stove, kitchen amenities and running water. Porta potty only The cabins are located Away from our living area. Main cabin is overlooking the creek and the tent sites, creekside cabin is down near the swimming hole and tent sites. Tent sites are located next to the creek or up near the community fire pit. This is our home, it is private, eclectic and filled with natural beauty. That being said, it is by no means pristine. We have the occasional junk pile like most off grid homesteaders do. We do not throw out some things that others would. We try to find a use for old and weathered equipment and materials. Our cabin is built completely with recycled and reclaimed materials. Like I said, we do not like to waste anything, so you may notice a few parts and pieces laying around.

My group and I loved the spot. The is a nice little spot to take a dip in that is well-shaded. Thor was also a great host for us. Gas station, grocery store, food spots within 15 of the camp site.

On such a warm day, it was so fun getting to jump in the creek among the redwoods. We really appreciated a space where our pup could play off leash! Our host was very communicative and the directions were very easy to follow. Hope to come back soon!

This is a great little hidden place that is just a short drive from me, So it's very convenient for a quick weekend getaway. While the upper area is in a bit of disarray it is easy to look past to see all the beautiful nature and enjoyable temps. The campsites (tent) are creek side (and 1 campsite in the upper area) and the Porta potty bathroom is a short walk from the sites, there is a community fire pit which the kids loved roasting marshmallows on. My youngest was enthralled with the chickens and loved playing the the shallow creek. The creek water is crystal clear and we enjoyed finding pretty river rocks in. The host Thor was pleasant and offered the use of his wagon to get our equipment to the site and even allowed us to stay a bit after check out so the kids could enjoy the creek a bit more. I love that this is very local to me and we will be coming back again for short weekend getaways .

Thor was super kind and welcoming. Adorable chickens that he let our little one feed. Some of the decor takes some getting used to, but worth it for the hospitality and scenery. Overall, I would recommend. Son loved him and kept asking where our buddy Thor was

Tent camping at Thor’s site was nice! A big plus was the nice creek with tons of shade. My dogs loved playing in it with all the other dogs camping. Thor was really nice and accommodating. Would definitely stay here again.
