A little more about us: We are the Cambia Community; a small income-sharing intentional community, education and nature center. You may meet a variety of people, see a variety of permaculture projects, take a tour of our outdoor museum of sustainability, and camp out in a beautiful, secluded forest. Campsites do not have road access! It is a short trail from the parking and common house to the forest campground. Due to Covid, we offer self-guided tours with an accompanying booklet. Social distancing relaxed if you have been vaccinated; most of us staying here have been vaccinated as well.

If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
Can confirm that it is, indeed, magical. Small but private campsite in the woods, quiet and peaceful. Nice trail for an evening stroll. An abundance of fallen branches, kindling and tinder that can be gathered for a fire. Friendly and helpful hosts. Hosted by a very unique community that is fascinating to visit on its own.
A magical retreat!
This was the perfect spot for me! As other reviewers mentioned, the site was set back from the parking lot by a short walk, but it wasn't hard to carry my supplies out, and I was offered a wheelbarrow if I needed one. Bruce, who gave me a tour, was very kind, as was everyone else I met. The campsite itself was wonderful and very private - equipped with a bench, a hammock, a swing, a compost toilet, and plenty of firewood. I also had a great time exploring the woods. I definitely plan to come back for another stay in the future!
Unique, enriching, and fun
My friends and I had the best time staying at Cambia community! The campsite was secluded in from the rest of the community and suited our needs perfectly. We were provided with plenty of firewood and a composable toilet right next to camp. There was also a very cool playground with fun and unique “team building” activities, we enjoyed the rope swing and zipline very much. The stars were gorgeous out there and we could even see the Milky Way. There’s a well maintain network of trails through the woods that led us to our campsite from the parking lot (with many hidden gems along the way). The short walk from our car was manageable as we were provided with a wheelbarrow to carry our gear. Everyone we met at Cambia were very friendly and were kind enough to serve us meals and share about their way of life as an intentional community. We enjoyed the vibe so much that we decided to stay an extra night in exchange for some farm work. Our last morning we harvested vegetables and peeled garlic for pesto making. Such a unique and enriching experience that we will never forget. We will miss you Cambia!
