Nestled in the oak-studded Atascadero hills a charming site awaits you...an unforgettable destination surprise. A charming old country road leads to a sole-campsite exclusively for you and friends/family. The bathroom is straight out of the Hobbit, equipped with hot/cold water, stall shower, comfy towels & camp supplies. The propane firepit is perfect for evening gatherings with your companions and marshmallow roasts. A hand-carved trail surrounds the area: complete with a suspension bridge & chicken coup. Additionally, we provide a sustainable eco-friendly environment for our guests: including trash, recycling & composting receptacles. Additionally, be aware of the wildlife... plenty of turkeys, deer, racoons & quail. Also a chicken coup with several laying hens. The nights are dark but we provide flashlights...then turn the flashlights off for a dazzling evening of stargazing. Atascadero is the perfect base for discovering the Central Coast: wineries/tasting rooms, olive oil tasting, abundant trails for walking/hiking; golfing as well as exploring the beaches: Morro Bay, Avila Beach, Montana de Oro, and northward to Cambria, Cayucos, San Simeon & Big Sur. Look forward to seeing you...

Magical hideaway in the woods
What a special place Bill and Wendee have created. They have built so many wonderful features here there is a surprise at every turn. The bath house is positively luxurious. The walkin trail is delightful. And they are such gracious hosts. The only hiccup was getting out very heavy vehicle up the driveway . We made it but it was a nail biter. Will still come back the next chance we get. Worth every penny.

Even more incredible than I anticipated. I will absolutely be coming back. William was an amazing host and the location and care him and Wendee put into the design was impressive. I highly recommend staying here!

Our stay at Wendy’s Whimsical was amazing. The site was so well done and we got a full walkthrough of everything that was offered by the owners, including a little backstory of how things were built. We got to explore around and enjoy the area to ourselves. The bathroom was so clean, there was a cozy fire pit and available picnic table with barbecue grill. We plan to come back here again. We loved this place so much. Thank you for allowing campers to stay here!

Private,Quiet, Charming Glamp Site!
Bill and Wendy were so welcoming and kind, super responsive, and had a ton of attention to detail. This spot is more than camping. It is for sure a whimsical little glamping set up with many personal touches. There is a fun trail that goes around the property, over a suspension bridge and down to the camp site. Everything is well cared for and clean, including the sweet little chickens. We were so happy to come back to a quiet private spot after venturing into Moro Bay (only 20 min away) to see Montana de Oro preserve . We had dinner overlooking the sailboats moored in the bay and walked on Strand beach. This is camping the easy way. 😁 We would definitely return with our kids so they could enjoy the marshmallow cabinet, the gas fire pit and run around the trail. Also, there were no bugs. Seriously. None.

Awesome site, unique experience
Amazing, private site well worth visiting. Bill went above and beyond to welcome us, show us around. A truly unique experience. The only caution I’ll make is that the road into the campsite is pretty narrow so if you have a big camper/RV I would think twice. We have a fully loaded sprinter van and while it worked and I’m somewhat used to off-road driving (the van is 4x4 w. off-road tires) I was a little concerned and I definitely wouldn’t have taken the road if it had been wet at all. Smaller trucks, normal cars, no problem.

Camping in a dream
First time hipcampers here but not new to camping, overlanding and backpacking. First off Bill has such a uniquely beautiful space carved out of a dream. I’ve been a lot of places but I’ve never encountered a hidden s’more closet in the side of hill like I was transported to middle earth and Charlie’s chocolate factory rolled into one. I cannot say enough how utterly fantastic the experience was and Bill definitely set the bar higher than an Airbnb plus.

Whimsy and William!
William & Wendee have created an imaginative and welcoming site! We loved our two night stay. And William is THE NICEST gentleman! On our way in he noticed one of the beautiful arching oak trees had branches low enough that they rubbed the rack on our van. The following morning he was up early trimming the offending branch. I haven’t even mentioned the S’mores’ locker! We will definitely be back!!!!

LOVELY! Easy to get to from the little town of Atascadero, saw lots of deer, woodpeckers and vultures on the way and during the stay (: Very thoughtfully curated campsite, you can just tell they have been having a lot of fun making the space magical for us! Loved the mini hiking trail! The end of the trail by the driveway is the perfect place for sunset and the climb after the bridge is perfect for sunrise💛 Will be coming back!

William's campsite was lovely. It was not only as advertised but so much more. I am used to campsites claiming they have certain amenities only to get there and see that they are out of order or not provided. The campsite is clearly their passion and it was so fun to explore. Thank you again!

Fun, original, and private vibe
It is a super easy place to stay, with a fun, original, and private vibe. Highly recommended. The goldfish, bees, and hens make it a truly grounded and Earthly experience. The sky is gorgeous at night, and it’s peaceful relaxing under the starry night.

Wendee’s Whimsical Camp was so lovely and quiet. There’s just one campsite on the property so we had the whole place to ourselves. Wendee’s is thoughtfully planned out with a picnic table with a tablecloth and a shade umbrella with lights, a fire pit area for hanging out and roasting marshmallows (marshmallows included), a full bathroom with a shower and fluffy towels and an easy to use generator for lights and heating the water in the bathroom and the outdoor sink. There is even a hiking trail around the perimeter of the property. A comprehensive binder is waiting for you at the camp with full instructions. Highly recommend Wendee’s!

Quirky spot in a beautiful area
We loved staying on William's land. It was an interesting spot that was private and had extra amenities. I loved the private bathroom! We camp in our van so having a private bathroom with shower was extra nice. The host was very nice and informative. You can tell he takes pride in all the work he put into this property. They even provided marshmallows for roasting. We highly recommend!

Magical Adventure
Truly a whimsical camp site. The attention to detail in the amenities is top notch. One of the best showers in the area (better than some local hotels) fluffy towels, super clean and gorgeous. The books in the bathroom with labeled local adventures show how well planned out the hosts care about our stay. Plenty of light and room for our family to explore. The fish pond, fire pit, hammock, golf deck and swinging bridge are endless adventures not to mention the stunning views will wow you with each whimsical step.

Viva la Wendee's Whimsical!
Was our second visit, and it was just as good - if not better - than the first! This is such a special place. We LOVED the S'mores cellar and new hammock area. They're so committed to making the site fun and interesting, and Wendee and Bill are the most warm and kind people. They really listen to feedback about interesting or useful features, and it's worth it even for one night to camp and then have a nice hot shower in the mornings.

Wendee's campsite was so thoughtful and unique! Great location to feel away from it all and just a few minutes from activities like Sensorio, wineries, a little further to beaches, Avila Valley Barn, etc. You drive right up to the site, set up camp, then have picnic tables, grill, fire pit, hammock, trail w/ suspension bridge and bathroom all available to you. Will definitely stay again!

One of the best camping experiences ever! William and Wendee were the best hosts and their lovely land and camp is so unique and amazing! Our kids (age 4 and 2) loves the campsite and hike and land so much! They said it “was the best campsite EVER” We can’t wait to come back and feel so blessed to have found such a magical spot for family adventures!

Definitely Whimsical! Unique location, very quiet, but easy access to shops and restaurants in Atascadero and wineries in Paso Robles. S'mores by the firepit, and cooking dinner on the grill made it all-inclusive!

Perfect place for a get away
I have no words. This place is AMAZEBALLS! Got to meet both Wendee and Bill on our last night. They are amazing people and the care and thought they have put into this place is nothing short of WOW! Bill was so nice even to meet us waaAAAaaay past our check-in time. He was ready outside with a lantern and flashlights, while literally walking us down to the site to which they have a quaint little bathroom powered up by a generator that wasn't too loud. I mean hot shower and a compostable toilet?!?!?! Woohoo. Annnd not to mention the firepit! No matches? No problem! They have you covered with lighters...everywhere! The trail Bill had made was PHENOMENAL!!!!! You can watch the beautiful sunrise/sunset and be in awe that you are only 15 min away from wine tasting at paso robles and atascadero! Great place. Loved every moment spent there. Will be back.
