This spectacular campsite is the closest you'll get to the new Tribal Park Entrance. We are in fact in Monument Valley, and throughout history the Tribal Park Entrance has changed from Gouldings Lodge and is now at the View Hotel. We are conveniently located 1 Mile from the 163 Junction, before the Tribal Park Entrance. This site is close to the roads, entering into the Navajo Tribal Park, and accessible to grocery store, gas station and restaurants. . So this site location is semi remote, its close to the tribal park entrance, which many people want!) At this location, you are guests of the Navajo and can access the entire Monument Valley easily accessible with any type of car. There is an outhouse at the campsite area. This listing includes access to our instant hot water solar shower, and we provide wifi for checking messages, or maps, but its very limited as we are in a rural area. So we don't provide it as an amenity because there's no technology for it to reach the tents. And we feel that's the best part of camping. Having access to it, but not while actually camping. This listing is for one vehicle. Extra Vehicles require their own site registration. This site includes a tent, with a full sized bed, pillows, linens, blankets, comforter, a queen sized 0 degree sleeping bag, and during the winter months we give guests handwarmers which make it nice and warm in the sleeping bag, without having to heat up the entire outdoors.
Located in the redwood forest of the Santa Cruz Mountains and only a short drive from the bay area, Camp Cruz is a unique "glamping" facility in the redwoods with many amenities not found in basic campgrounds. Camp Cruz is located on a 5-acre residential mountain property. While camp owners live on the property and have a sweet siberian husky (who is always on a runner), the layout of the land provides seclusion and a reasonable level of privacy for guests. Camp Cruz is home to Growing Up Wild, a seasonal kid's camp. Your stay here supports our mission to take disadvantaged youth outdoors. This listing is for groups between 11 to 20 people with an extra charge for up to 5 more people. We also have a small group listing for up to 10 people on Hipcamp. ACCOMMODATIONS Camp Cruz offers a 22 ft. geodesic dome, a 12 ft. aircrete dome, and a 14 ft. yurt - all of which are furnished. The large geodome has electrical outlets, a coffee/tea station, a stereo/DVD system, and a wood stove for heat. Sleeping accommodations in the geodome include a couch and 4 sleeping cots. The aircrete dome offers electricity, a futon couch and 2 sleeping cots. The yurt offers a couch, 2 sleeping cots, a wood stove for heat, but no electricity. All together, these structures can sleep up to 10 people. You will need to bring your own camping tents to sleep more campers. We also offer a shiftpod which is an insulated 12x12 ft. large tent that sleeps up to 4 people. Let us know if you wish to use it, and we can set it up for you for $25. Look it up online for more info. WHAT WE PROVIDECamp Cruz offers a covered outdoor kitchen on a spacious deck equipped with a sink with potable water, a fridge, a 3-burner stove (propane included), a basic assortment of pots, pans, cooking utensils, a grill (charcoal not included), spices, a commercial coffee machine, tables, and chairs.

Please note that you do not need to bring bottled water as we have potable well water in the kitchen. CHILDREN AT CAMP CRUZWhile we are happy to welcome families with children, we have learned from experience to put a cap on the amount of children for safety reasons. Hence, our limit is 10 kids under age 12, not counting babies in arms. INTERNET AND CELLULAR SERVICEAlthough we do not provide internet service, devices with Verizon do receive a signal at camp for texting, calling, and emailing. For emergency purposes, we can provide you access to our landline. NEARBY DESTINATIONS AND SPECIAL ACTIVITIESCamp Cruz is within an hour drive for day trips to Santa Cruz, or Monterey where you can enjoy world class beaches, including the beach boardwalk, a wide variety of restaurants, and a fun nightlife. Camp is only a couple miles from the upper entrance of the Forest of Nisene Marks State Park and the Soquel Demonstration Forest. These parks are epic for mountain biking and hiking. Also, we are conveniently located next to Koinonia Conference Grounds which offers affordable ropes courses, outdoor laser tag, and a swimming pool. If interested, please inquire at the time of your booking. ON WASTEFor this large group listing, we offer to share the trash service with our guests. This means that guests can leave one bag of garbage per night but must take all additional bags of garbage with them. We do provide one large container for recycling. Guests are expected to sort their trash and recycling properly. Waste in the form of broken camp equipment or packaging materials from newly purchased camping products are not permitted to be left behind. EXPECTATIONSArrival is between 3 and 9pm. Groups are expected to follow Hip Camp's "Leave no Trace" agreement, leaving the campground clean and everything in good condition. We do allow legal-age alcohol consumption on site, however, this facility is NOT a place for raging late night parties with excessive alcohol consumption. Indoor structures are meant for mellow, relaxed activities. Adult supervision of children is required at all times inside the structures. Upon departure, guests are expected to thoroughly clean the kitchen and all indoor spaces. We provide written guidelines on clean up to help guests meet our expectations. While the campground is secluded enough for late night campfires, quiet hours are observed from 11pm - 9am, particularly around the residences and parking area. When requesting a booking, we ask that you tell us about your group and the intention behind your visit. Thanks for reading our listing. We look forward to hearing from you. A PROPER HEADS UP ABOUT OUR NEIGHBORSOur neighboring Buddhist retreat center, Pema Osel Ling, occasionally hosts weddings. The location of the marriage ceremony is tucked away in the redwoods out of sight but within hearing distance from our camp. Hence, we make a special request to our guests to plan for quiet time during the wedding ceremony which lasts for only 30-45 minutes. Furthermore, there are locations, such as the creekside, that you can go to at our camp in order to continue with your activities at normal noise levels during the ceremony. Many of our guests, especially guests with kids, simply plan their hiking adventure during this time. Additionally, the wedding reception, held in a hall away from our camp, can sometimes be heard in the distance depending on the celebration style of the wedding. We have an agreement with the retreat center to turn down the sound at 10pm sharp. If this situation weighs into your decision to book with us, message us and we will tell you if a wedding is scheduled during the dates of your requested stay.
Sturtevant Camp was established in 1893 and is located, ONLY via hiking trails, 4. 25 miles from Chantry Flat in the Angeles National Forest. The Honeymoon Cottage is the third oldest building in Camp, dating back to the 1920’s. It is the last of many identical cabins that dotted the grounds of Sturtevant Camp. It was named "The Honeymoon Cottage" because it is so tiny it really only holds a couple comfortably in a double bed. The cabin is only available from Friday to Sunday. All bedding is provided for you so no need to bring a sleeping bag. There is a a propane heater for those chilly nights. This cabin is close to the common grounds and the dining hall, yet oriented as to provide privacy. It is also the cabin closest to the creek. Use the bathhouse with its flush toilets and hot showers for cleanup time and the communal kitchen for cooking. This is a wonderful location for a writer's retreat. When you send a booking request, the manager will send you an email with further instructions on how to get to Camp, parking information, etc. Rather than carrying your food and personal items into Camp, consider hiring Adams' Pack Station's friendly donkeys to carry everything in on Friday morning. More information will be provided in your confirmation email. Note: This is a Hike in site. This cabin is only available Friday through Sunday. A five day notice to request a booking is required as our hosts are all volunteer and need to be notified that you are planning on enjoying a weekend with us.
This experience includes the privacy of two cabins and your own river retreat, located on a 1500-acre habitat preserve; adjacent to 650 acres of state park land along the beloved Yuba River. Two round cabins reserved only for your group, the ‘moon’ cabin and the ‘sun’ cabin as seen in a design within the rock walls, hand constructed of stone gathered from the land, each with a queen bed, desk, chairs, and mini-kitchen with stove, sink, refrigerator and an outdoor bbq. The shared bath house has an indoor hot shower, sink, and compost toilet, along with an outdoor shower with views of the river. Our electricity comes from solar-power and we feature organic bedding and towels. Each cabin sleeps 2 people max. Includes Yuba River beach access with picnic area, hammock, chairs and optional river campsite. The private spot, with swimming holes and sun-warmed rocks is a 10-minute hike (vigorous hike back) from the stone cabins. Access to the 650-acre South Yuba State Park with hiking & biking trails and additional river spots is a 5-minute drive by car. Note: This rental is not ideal for young children due to its location on the edge of the river canyon.

Your wilderness adventure awaits, complete with modern mountain accommodations. Regardless of season, adventure is guaranteed, but please read this about access so you are educated about our wilderness travel options in all seasons: In summer, most guests will want to hike about 2. 5 miles (or more depending on the choice of trails) to the site, as the hike is beautiful, and the drive is best reserved for motorbikes, atvs, or 4wd jeeps with big tires, lockers, and winches. In winter (Nov 20th - May 21st), access is by over-snow vehicles such as snowmobiles (with proper experience), backcountry skis (with proper experience), snowshoes, or some combination. Expect 10. 5 - 11+ miles of over-snow transport Guests booking around the start / end dates of the season can check with host about current conditions as these are USFS guidelines and depend on conditions. Stay in comfort in the middle of Holy Cross Wilderness. Scandinavian design meets Colorado nature. El Refugio is a one room cabin with full bed for two and extra mattresses for a couple others. Accommodates 4 inside (with sleeping bags for 4). Perfect alternative to 10th mountain huts with a huge variety of excellent skiing, hiking, and climbing just out the door. Leave No Trace style property blends the best of conservation and comfort; your LNT practices help us keep hosting awesome people. Please remember food, water, and sleeping bag liners if you want to use our bags, wag bags (for use with the gray folding NRS toilet, located under the table), firewood/ starter (see notes below), and either your own small stove or jetboil/MSR/snowpeak fuel for the small 1-burner stove (preferable; in the kitchen bin). Pots and pans and utensils and such are available for your use. A solar shower is also available. There is a small, very efficient wood burning stove inside the cabin for emergency and winter use (please bring 6" length logs if you'd like to use this) and there is a fire pit/ring outside (please bring 8-16" length logs if you'd like to use this) on the ledge overlooking Holy Cross City and the mountains. Check local fire bans (Eagle County and White River National Forest) before burning!Expect to have no cell service along the way so if you're using Google Maps, we would suggest downloading the area map to your phone before taking off. A printed topo map is an excellent item for your pack as well. There are several different routes you can take when getting to the cabin, which you will pass in this order as you go along the 703/ Homestake road and you'll see outlined in detail further below:1. Hike in from the start of Holy Cross City Road (road 759) (3. 7 miles, 39. 403140, -106. 443517)2. Hike in from Fancy Pass Trailhead (~4. 4 miles, 39. 390546, -106. 470555)3. EASIEST ROUTE: Hike in from intersection of 727 and 759 (2. 5 miles, for getting here you should have 6-8+” clearance and AWD, as the 727 road is a somewhat tricky drive and not for rental sedans), 39. 409698, -106. 455588)Note: For winter the best route is on Homestake Reservoir Road (road 703) for about 7-7. 5 miles from the closure to the 759 Holy Cross City jeep road and then up to Holy Cross City Directions:1. Off highway 24, take Homestead Reservoir Road (road 703). 2. Drive about 7. 8 miles and take a right onto Missouri Creek Road (road 704). Note: before Missouri Creek Road, your GPS may try to take you to the right up Holy Cross City Road (road 759). Unless you have a high clearance, off-road vehicle, we would not turn here. However, you can hike in from this point. Please check signs regarding current parking restrictions if you choose this option. 3. Drive 2. 2 miles and take a right on Fancy Creek Road (road 727). For this road you may want a good Colorado trailhead vehicle like a Subaru, unless you are used to driving your lower-clearance vehicle on narrow and at time challenging forest roads. Note: you'll pass Fancy Pass Trailhead which is another hiking route you can take to the cabin. 4. Drive 1. 8 miles and you'll reach an opening where you can park your vehicle. 5. Head up the 759 jeep road to the cabin. Further directions and GPS coordinates provided at booking. Winter (Nov 20 - May 20, approx, check USFS website for exact): Plan on the road being unplowed about 1/4 mile off of HWY 24, so plan on 7-7. 5 miles flat (depending on where you can park) on the 703 road and then 3. 5-4 miles up (depending on what quick shortcuts you are familiar with) on the Road 759 (right turn off of 703) over snow by snowmobile, snowshoes, touring skis, etc. We do our best to keep a skin/ snowshoe track up maintained but not always possible after new snow. Parking is often available at start of 703 road a little before bridge, or off of 24. Note: if you would like exclusive guest use of the property, please be sure to rent the campsite too (we generally only rent two sites to larger parties, but often offer one site for rent when the cabin is booked)
The Lake Cabin is great for 2 people or as a base camp for larger groups. The cabin holds 2 people and there is lots of room to set up tents around it for up to 50 guests.

Super quiet and private 10 acres of private redwoods, and a waterfall with the ocean and Santa Cruz mountains a short hike away! Glamping or camping opportunities, great for a quiet romantic getaway or a group of friends and family. Sleep in a modern, warm "tiny house" studio constructed from a shipping container (2-3 people) or set up your own tents throughout the property. Rustic cabin with electricity, sink, and flushing toilet. Close proximity to excellent hiking (skyline to the sea / big basin state park), and a few miles away from some of California's most beautiful beaches and some of the best surfing and kitesurfing between San Francisco and Santa Cruz. Also a short drive away from Costanoa resort and Highway 1 Brewing restaurants. ** 3 different sites ** are available to accommodate separate small groups but the property is ideal for single private groups… ** Site 1 (the container studio) is fantastic to sleep in, insulated and warm, and feels like a modern studio without electricity (for now). ** Site 2 (bring your own tents) are recommended for the more outdoorsy, or rest of a larger group. ** Site 3 is for a small group willing to tent camp, hammock-tent camp, or car/van camp further away from the main cabin + container studio area. The *rustic* cabin is unfurnished and isn’t intended for sleeping (mostly there for the bathroom and as a storage area), but is possible to use for sleeping in case of unexpected weather. * We've been giving priority to first bookings choosing between using the container or tents, or you can reserve the entire property to keep it completely private. When sites are booked separately: A) we've been optimizing for small groups so the space remains intimate, B) shared facilities become the bathroom in the rustic cabin, and central fire pit in a courtyard area near the cabin. * A couple items of camping gear are available onsite for use by extra guests at any of the sites: 1 x 4 person dome tent, and 2 x 1 person hammock tents (with mosquito nets). * There's plenty of space elsewhere on the property to spread out, and its still a work in progress so we really appreciate ideas/suggestions regarding other site locations that would work well + other potential improvements to the facilities. Let us know if you have other questions, and hope you can visit sometime!

Our glamping site, located in the less crowded, backside of Zion offers a relaxing experience. The nights allow for stellar star gazing that can't be seen from a crowded city. You'll find our site offers a true outdoor experience, while only a couple minutes from local restaurants and grocery stores. Strategically located in Hildale, the site provides access to several National and State Parks including Zion, Bryce and the Grand Canyon. We happily welcome couples, solo adventurers and friends. The site is set on 95 acres of wilderness, private property that sits at the base of the Canaan Mountains. It is easily accessible by any vehicle. Being 400 ft from the Maxwell Park entrance traffic can be heard since the park is visited frequently by vehicles and ATV's throughout the day and sometimes into the night. The site is equipped with a 10 X 12 ft. canvas tent that allows the guests to feel at home with nature, while enjoying the amenities that make it a comfortable experience. The queen bed is set up to accommodate two people, but we do allow you to bring a sleeping bag or blankets to use inside the tent on the wood platform to accommodate up to four people. The thick canvas tent is water and mildew treated, keeping you dry when it rains and keeping the temperature cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. The front of the tent has a full screen door while the other 3 walls have screened windows, allowing great airflow while keeping bugs out. All of this is placed on a solid wood platform that keeps you out of the dirt and makes the tent very secure. A solar shower by heating the water with the Sun allows for a quick wash on extended stays. A small cabinet holds all of the utensils, dishes and a propane camping stove to prepare meals. A cooler is available for storing items and ice can be picked up locally. By visiting the nearby grocery store you're able to find the necessary ingredients for some great campfire food that can be enjoyed at the site. Nearby restaurants also provide a variety of local food options. We suggest that once you arrive, you take a moment to breathe and relax to enjoy the beauty of nature and enjoy the peace outside of the constant hustle of life. Sit in our Adirondack chairs on the front porch and watch the sunrise and sunset light up the surrounding mountains. The weather in this area is very desert based. During the summer it can be very warm, with comfortable night temperatures. The Spring and Fall seasons create perfect hiking weather - light jacket weather in the early morning, but very peaceful temperatures during the day. Sitting inside the tent with the front door open during a fall rain shower with a warm cup of cocoa and a book is one of our favorite experiences. Critters and bugs: You are outside of the city paved streets. There are some small animals such as squirrels and rabbits throughout the area. During the winter some deer occasionally make their way down through the valley. Spiders, ants, and black flies enjoy the area just as much as we do, but we have found the wood platform under the tent keeps you out of the dirt and with some bug spray, they're likely to not ruin your trip. Noises: During the day or night you can occasionally hear birds and other critters. The gravel road is about 400 ft away that leads to the nearby Maxwell Park. Cars and occasionally ATV's can be heard as people in the area enjoy visiting the park for picnics and retrieving water from the natural spring. From the site several trails are within walking distance including the Water Canyon Trail head known for its canyoneering and primitive trails. Above Water Canyon lies the Natural Bridge trail that travels across the mountain top making for a several hour hike. Near the Water Canyon Trail head is the start of the Squirrel Canyon Trail that travels along a creek bed for 1. 5 miles before coming upon a natural amphitheater. While all those trails are considered primitive, for the more adventurous there is the El Capitan trail that travels several thousand feet up giving a vast view for miles. The site is very centralized for travel to several national parks including Zion (1 hr), Grand Canyon (2hr), Bryce Canyon(2hr) and several state parks including Snow Canyon, Quail Creek, Coral Pink Sand Dunes, Sand Hollow, Lake Powell, and Cedar Breaks. Mountain biking on Goosberry Mesa is also only 20 min away with several other bike trails. Guest accessClean public restrooms are located in the park right next to the property and are within walking distance. Potable water is also available in the park that comes from a natural spring up near the base of the mountains and is piped into the park. Interaction with guestsThe goal of establishing this glamping location is to allow guests the opportunity of solitude and privacy in an incredible part of the country. Due to this, the owner won’t be seen unless requested and can be contacted at any time. Other things to noteCell phone service is very limited with one bar at best. Guests have received a text at the location through AT&T, but it is not reliable. Service is more available one mile down the road. It is advised to download or print out any directions before traveling to the site. There are several places to eat in the town including a Bees Marketplace, (grocery store), Dollar General, Subway, Merry Wives Cafe and Berry Knoll Bakery. Traveling to the glamping site takes you through the town of Hildale. For those that do not already know, it is known for being the home of many FLDS members who dress in solid colored dresses. There are several weathered and unfinished homes, but the glamping site takes you away from all of this.

Bought this property in 1989, and had the house of our dreams built on it. It is bounded on two sides by the Elkhorn Slough Bird Sanctuary, which give terrific views all the way to Monterey Bay. The birds wake you up in the morning, and in the spring the tree frogs lull you asleep. We are well situated in the middle of Monterey Bay. 20-25 minutes to either Santa Cruz or Monterey. Locally in Moss Landing are good restaurants and a great beach to walk till you drop. Most important is the Elkhorn Slough. Part of the marine sanctuary it offers an unrivaled view of sea otters in their natural environment. It is also a birders paradise. Take one of the enclosed charter boats or rent a kayak, and see for yourself. The Trailer, its self is a 2015 airstream flying cloud. We provide bedding only for the main bed, bring a sleeping bag for anyone not sleeping in main bed. Bring your own towels. Only utensils, dishes and a tea kettle are provided. Also recommend bringing drinking water.

At La Boheme, you will find a tranquil Safari Tent Glamping experience - with hiking/biking trails and all sorts of outdoor activities anywhere from a 5 minute walk to 30 minutes away by car---- but you can also hop on the Gold Line train (which is a 1 minute walk out the back door) and in choosing one direction, you are a couple of stops from Chinatown or Downtown LA's rich cultural experiences & exciting nightlife. If you decide to explore in the other direction, Metro's Gold Line (in 1 stop) will take you to the heart of Highland Park's bustling scene - offering a smorgasbord of eateries, coffee-shops, speakeasies, boutiques, yoga studios and art galleries - including LA's oldest bowling alley: Highland Park Bowl. Take the train further and you're in the heart of glorious Pasadena (home to The Rose Bowl and exceptional Norton Simon Museum)-- or continue out to beautiful Sierra Madre -- where there is hiking and exploring galore! At La Boheme you can grill onsite, order take-out, dine out, stay-in and book a personal masseuse (that will change your world!) You can find places to hike, bike, play tennis, come back and shower (with hot water) - enjoy some bubbly with your honey on the deck -- take the train downtown to catch a concert at the Staples center -- Uber back - light the chiminea -- roast a s'more or two and crawl into your super comfy REAL bed in your REAL Safari Tent! Remember -- this is URBAN Glamping -- a friendly reminder that there can be normal city noises throughout your stay -- like a Fire Engine answering a call - or the train running behind the property -- or a kid crying in the apartment next door. It happens. Life happens. Of the several people who have already enjoyed the Glamping experience of La Boheme -- normal city noise/life hasn't dampened the experience at all-- only made it more intriguing! There is both a fan for air circulation and/or "white noise" as well as a heater, if you should need either of them. Plenty of extra blankets are available as well as a blow-up air mattress if you are a booking for 3 guests. La Boheme also is a venue for weddings and other events -- so we love hosting and want to do whatever we can to make your stay the best it can be for you! Please reach out with any questions or recommendations for the area. If you are new to the area - definitely spend a little time Googling ALL that is available to you - and I'll do my best to fill any blanks-- ha! Looking forward to meeting and hosting you at La Boheme. - Hillary
Located right off the 199 Redwood Highway, we welcome you to our forest sanctuary. These tiny A-Frame cabins are our newest addition to the land. The river is just a few min walk down to our own private beach and swimming. The camp is also just a 3 minute walk to the lands prestine swimming hole. These A-Frame Cabins are super cozy at 1000sf with an additional deck that is great for yoga or napping. The cabins include two twin size mattresses and linen bedding. This camp is a 1 minute walk to the main house, private commercial kitchen, cute compost toilet, shower house and sauna. These cabins are ideal for two people. The front part of the cabin can be closed off or opened up to the elements. Since one side of the cabin is clear you can see in a bit but can also drape something over for more privacy. The reason for the clear side to is allow for the feeling of sleeping right outside amongst nature. Cedar Bloom has available power and cell phone service. Cell phone service works great if you have AT&T or Verizon. Internet is limited but is available. We have several giant meadows with thousands of trees surrounding. We are right on the Illinois River with a mile of river frontage and 3 incredible swim spots. It's a great place to come and recharge and renew. We are surrounded by beautiful scenery in all directions! We are close to the Redwoods, The Oregon Caves and so much more. We are close to major cities such as Grants Pass, Medford, Crescent City and Ashland. MORE ABOUT CEDARSONG. . . Cedar Bloom was purchased in the spring of 2017 by Spirit Weavers Gathering as a place of peace and healing, for all walks of life. Spirit Weavers is an annual womens gathering which happens once a year each June. We host over 1,000 women in just two weeks on the land. We are located on the Illinois River just outside Cave Junction, Oregon. Our Main House was built in 1962 and retains the flavor of the 60’s with a beautiful Mid Century Modern feel. It houses a kitchen, dining hall, a living room, five bedrooms and three bathroom with a bathtub. It currently houses Agustin and Mea and their seven year old daughter Naia. FIRST NATIONS PEOPLE OF THE ILLINOIS VALLEYFor thousands of years, the Takelma people lived in the Illinois and Rogue River valleys, what is now known as Josephine County. They lived in small bands close to the land. Interior southwest Oregon has pronounced seasons and the ancient Takelma adapted to these seasons by spending spring, summer and early fall months collecting and storing food for the winter season. Salmon was central to their food source and way of life. The salmon diet was supplemented by game, such as deer, elk, beaver, bear, antelope and bighorn sheep. Smaller mammals, such as squirrels, rabbits and gophers, might have been snared by both men and women. They gathered the root of the Camas plant, part of the asparagus family, as well as acorns from the two native species of Oaks, the Oregon white oak and California black oak. Other vegetation included manzanita berries, pine nuts, tarweed seeds, wild plums and sunflowers. The Takelma are also known to have cultivated a native tobacco plant, but otherwise relied on the fruits of the wilderness for their survival. The main utensils included horn, bone and wood-made implements and a great variety of baskets constructed generally by twining on a hazel warp. Stone was used in the making of arrowheads and pestles. The clothing and personal adornment of the Takelma was similar to the tribes of northern California. Notable characteristics include facial painting, red-headed woodpecker scalps for men and basket caps for women. The women also tattooed the skin in three stripes and men tattooed the left arm. European Settlement of the Illinois Valley began by the 1830’s, as the gold and logging industries developed. By the end of 1856, the traditional residents of the Rogue and Illinois River valleys were forcibly removed and relocated to the Siletz Reservation on the central Oregon coast. The Takelma were joined on the reservations by their neighbors, the Athapaskans and the Shasta, as well as tribes from even farther away, such as the Coos and Tillamook. It is reported that by 1906 less than ten Takelma were alive and able to speak their native language. In 1994, for the first time in over 140 years, an ancient ceremony took place to welcome home and give thanks for the returning salmon, on the Kanaka Flats of the Applegate River. People of all heritages were welcomed at the annual Salmon Gathering on the Applegate River until 2006. In 2007, the ceremony was moved to the place where it was held for thousands of years: the Tilomikh (Powerhouse Falls), on the Rogue River near Gold Hill, Oregon. Since then, the ceremony has taken place annually in its traditional location, demonstrating that the Takelma culture is alive and will continue into the future. Today, Takelma descendents continue to reside on or near the Siletz and Grand Ronde reservations. The Pilgrims brought back the Salmon Ceremony to Southern Oregon. Due to the Pilgrim’s contribution in returning the Salmon Ceremony to Jackson County, Agnis Baker-Pilgrim is known to some locals as the ‘Keeper of the Sacred Salmon Ceremony. Agnes, one of the oldest grandmothers of the International Council of the 13 Indigenous Grandmothers, has returned to the Rogue Valley and today her voice can be heard strong and clear, proving that the spirit and blood of her people are still with us. PLANT & ANIMAL RELATIONS We are very fortunate to be surrounded by a widely diverse population of flora and fauna. As caretakers of this sacred land, we feel a strong responsibility to honor our plant and animal allies by not only protecting them and their habitat, but also to help educate others about what lives and grows here by providing people with opportunities to experience the beauty of these plants and animals for themselves. For this reason, We are honored to host the many different groups who will gather here on this land for learning and communing with the nature that flourishes here. We feel very fortunate to be involved in this process of helping promote a sustainable and abundant future for all living things on this planet by sharing knowledge and skills from the human past that can make a sustainable lifestyle a reality for everyone everywhere. The animals here include, but are not limited to deer, foxes, coyote, raccoon, skunks, and sometimes black bear though we havent seen any yet! The birds that surround us are migratory geese, quail, wild turkeys, hawks, ospreys and eagles. The fish that call the Illinois River their home are the Salmon People, Steelhead & Trout along with their friends the otter and ducks. The Land is a no-hunting zone so the animals here are abudant and safe. The plant life here is incredibly diverse. This land is home to many native grasses, ferns, and berries, wild flowers, as well as many other edible and medicinal plants and fungi such as mugwort, self-heal, soap root, and a variety of mushrooms. The tree population is a blend of hardwoods like Manzanita, Madrone, and several kinds of Oaks along with mature Fir, Pine, Cedar trees, Alder, Maple and Apples. With special attention to management of non-native and invasive plants, Spirit Weavers is committed to maintaining a well balanced forest ecosystem with high biodiversity. TIMES Please clean up and check out of your site by 12:am on the day of your departure. You can check in by 2:pm on the day of your arrival. CLIMATE & THE ILLINOIS VALLEY Cedar Bloom holds the heart during the summer. Temps can range from 75-95 during the day and generally cools down to the 70's during the evenings. Swimming in the summer months is delicious. We have mostly pebbly beaches and a jagged rock and sand beach right where the Swimming hole is. The river is chilly until late June and it cools down again in late September. NEIGHBORS There is another campground right next door but since we have 100 acres, you never really see a soul besides us! Please use our pathways to travel property next to us, and respect the privacy and tranquility of our neighbors by not keeping late hours or playing loud music. EMERGENCIES If someone needs to reach you in an emergency, Cell phones work great on the land. If you don't get service and need to contact someone our land phones are available. SHOWER HOUSE & SAUNA We have twelve showers total. The first shower house is open showering with 4 showers and the 2nd shower house has 8 stalls. You are also welcome to use the sauna throughout your stay. COMPOST TOILET The "Honeydew Station" is our two chamber composting toilet. It looks like a tiny house and you will see it on your right as you drive in. Instructions are inside! FOOD & WATER Please bring your own food to camp. Town is close so if you need to run errands to grab food its a short drive away. All of our water is on a well and is super clean and ran through a UV light. Please keep food and garbage out of the reach and smell of animals so we don’t have animal visitors at night. GARBAGE If you pack it in, please pack it out when you leave. FIRES Depending on the time of year, cooking fires are permissible in the fire pits provided. June-Sept there can sometimes be fire bans in the county. Please NO bonfires. We have fire wood in the forest around the meadow for use for cooking fires but please bring your own wood to the land. We also have wood available for purchase in the Camp Store. PETS If you must bring your pet, please message us before hand. We ask that you clean up after your pup while here. We have doggie bags in the camp store. THE RIVER & SWIMMING HOLES We have a mile of river frontage and there is tons of space for all. Keiki Beach located down the trail from the sauna is the more shallow and flatter part of the river. This is a great spot for families! Mermaid Rock which is located down the trail to your left of the main house is our large swimming hole with deeper waters. This part of the river is clothing optional. Please be aware of the rocks down at Mermaid Rock & Dock. The rocks are tricky to walk on for both adults and especially children. Please keep your eyes on your children at all times while at the river. Feel free to bring rafts to play on. CAMP STORE If you happen to forget anything we have a camp store that is located in the main meadow. The Camp store sells everything from supplies to books and trinkets. If you text Mea she can meet you there anytime. GRATITUDE We feel honored to be stewards of this land. One of our main visions for this land is to protect its cultural and environmental heritage. We are excited to share about the native food forest we will be cultivating for the local community and beyond. We will also be placing the land into a conservation trust so no logging or future development can occur. For the many years to come, we will explore the ways can live in harmony with the natural world for the greater good of people and the plants and animals we depend on. We welcome you to Cedar Bloom!

This little piece of paradise is located in the Brushy Mountains of Western North Carolina. A peaceful refuge, the Treehouse is nestled between a rock shelf and a creek. This little hollow is a great place for play or just getting away from it all. Once our guests arrive, they seldom want to leave. Walk down the steep hillside to the 12x12 insulated cabin, which is extended with a 10x12 ft. deck. The Tree House hangs off of a rock ledge and is supported by trees. Whether rain or shine, this location is peaceful, private, and serene with more than an acre of total seclusion. Dogwood trees hang gracefully over the deck. Larger trees dapple the large site with partial shade. Wade into the shallow stream, sit on the deck, rest near the fire pit, or sit on the tree swings, and hammocks, and listen to the little stream, that borders the camp. The interior of the cabin is small, simple, but comfortable and includes a loft with a queen sized bed. On the main floor is a futon which converts into a double or two single beds. The kitchen includes cabinets for storage and a place for food preparation. To make your stay easier, we have added a few essentials, food items, as well as cooking equipment. On the deck there is Coleman cooking stove available for your use. There are two oil lamps, tea candles, and solar lights for your convenience. The paths have solar lights so you can find your way in the dark. It is very, very dark at night under the tree canopy. Please bring a flashlight so you can get around safely. There is a small, exterior, but attached outhouse with a sawdust composting toilet. This room has a battery powered motion light so you won't be stuck in the dark. A solar heated shower bag is available. You can also wash up in the creek. For those in your company who prefer a more primitive camping experience, there is plenty of room to pitch tents. If you have a larger group of people, you can also book our second site, The Suspended Sanctuary Tree Tent. The two sites are close enough for easy visiting but far enough a part for privacy. Play in the stream, follow the brook down to the neighbor's horse pasture and into the woods, or wander upstream to the man-made waterfall. Walk up the gravel road to our farm and meet our goats, chickens, donkeys, and horses. This is a working hobby farm. Homemade treats and farm fresh chicken eggs are regularly given to our guests. Sorry, no more homemade whole wheat sourdough bread. Now, we offer homemade gluten-free bake goods, bread and muffins, from my gluten free kitchen. I'm still working on making a super sourdough gluten free bread. You all can be my test subjects. Activities to the west include the Blue Ridge Parkway, which is about 30 minutes away. 15 minutes away is Kerr Scott Dam where you can rent kayaks, as well as other equipment, explore biking and hiking trails. Heading east, you can find several fine wineries and vineyards that you can visit. There is also a moonshine distillery in town. About a half hour away is an Amish community that has several businesses open to the public, including the Shiloh Bakery and General Store. They are closed on Sunday and Monday. To the northeast, about 45 minutes away, is Stone Mountain. Absolutely fantastic hiking, it is also an old homestead that has been renovated and is open to the public. Merlefest, the largest bluegrass festival in the nation, is about 15 minutes from the cabin. During the week, there are several open air markets which highlight local food, local artisans, and local music. If you enjoy disk golf, we have a highly rated course nearby. There are also several antique and second hand stores in our community. Prayer Mountain is only two miles away. Come and explore Wilkes County and see what we have to offer. TRASH REMOVAL: Please take your trash with you. For your convenience, there is a bin for recyclables, and a compost pile next to the garden. I will dispose of the human waste. FYI - While there are only accommodations for four people in the cabin, you can have more people by setting up tents on the premises. Just increase the number of people staying with you. Any questions, please feel free to ask. SUMMER CAMPING: The loft bedroom can get stuffy in the summer. There is no a/c. We do have a little solar fan that we keep in the loft window. You can get inexpensive battery powered fans at Walmart. Some campers have found these fans to be quite helpfulAlso, if you bring a tarp, you can stretch it over the deck to keep out rain and sun, as well as extending your living space if you do get a rainy day. Look in the photos for a picture of the set up. WINTER CAMPING: The wood stove that you see in the photos is merely decoration. There is no stovepipe. While many are capable of using a wood stove, all it takes is one mistake. So, we have provided a Mr. Heater Buddy that runs on 1# propane canisters. Please bring your own fuel. The directions on the Mr. Heater says that it burns 6 hours on low and 3 hours on high. The cabin is insulated and stays warm. Where we live, it is cold at night and often pleasant during the day.
Located minutes from I81. Park at the house and hike 200 yards down the hill to the secluded River Perch overlooking the North Fork of the Shenandoah River. You'll have river access for fishing, swimming and paddling (kayaks and canoes provided), or you can just sit on the dock and watch the sunset. Retreat back into the screened cottage for a quiet restful evening or relax on the deck by a fire. We are a Glamping site. . . like a hotel stay in the woods. Close by are 100's of miles of hiking trails and the charming town of Woodstock offering free concerts, some of Virginia's finest wineries, The Brewhouse and other great local restaurants. Contact Steve for further information. Come explore and adore. *New for July 2019, we have added an auxiliary deck in the trees for pitching your own tent or sleeping under the stars for additional campers.
Enjoy nightly hot tub soaks and bon fires at our cozy woodland retreat! Beer and wine taste by day or watch the big game and we'll have the wood fired hot tub stoked for you when you return. One block from Lake Michigan (we’re on the Michigan side of Michigan City, IN) and a short drive to Michigan wine country!!

In the summer, we are a three minute drive from delicious U-Pick blueberries and Shady Creek Winery and Burn ‘Em Brewing are a 3 minute drive and are open year round. We are a three minute drive into Michigan and 20 minutes to wine country, apple and berry picking. The Blue Chip Casino and Lighthouse Outlet Mall are popular indoor activities and are both ten minutes away. We are 40 minutes from South Bend, so are an easy drive for Notre Dame fans!We have a beautiful cedar wood fired soaking tub for your use. Please let us know if you want to use it BEFORE you arrive as it requires some prep for use! If we won't be around to start the tub, we will leave detailed directions for you to fire it up. Also please be aware that we only fire it up if it's going to drop below 65 degrees at some point during your stay. We also have a fire pit and have wood available!There is no bathroom in the little cabin but you will have access to our outdoor shower in the summer and newly remodeled indoor shower, sink and toilet in the main house year round. The King sized bed is in the loft so requires climbing a ladder to access and requires guests to duck to climb in but is extremely comfortable. If you have sensitive feet we recommend bringing slippers or sandals for climbing the ladder. We are artists who work from home and love to host and meet new people!Pets are not allowed due to allergies. While we love children, the space isn't suited for small kiddos. The loft is about 6'5" high and doesn't have a safety railing and the main area is too small for extra sleeping or spreading out to play. We ask for quiet after 10pm on weekdays and 11pm on weeknights. It's a beautiful location in the woods but we do have neighbors.
Best public campgrounds near me
Set slightly away from the fray of Point Reyes—the site is near the Madrone group campsite. Across a road from the main campground, it's a nice option for those who want to get away, but don’t want to sleep on the ground. Four cabins that hold up to 5 people are available. They all have electricity, platform bunk beds with mattresses, a wooden floor, covered porch, and an electric heater. It goes without saying that these book up fast, so make plans early to ensure a spot!
Cool, clear mornings in the heart of the forest is what the two campgrounds inside Hendy Woods Park, Azalea and Wildcat, promise. Set between Little Hendy and Big Hendy groves, these campgrounds have 43 and 49 spots, respectively.

Ready for an adventure? Just getting to this campground is a little bit epic. First, you have to board a boat at one of the five places that offer passenger service to the island: Punta Gorda, Pine Island, Fort Myers, Sanibel Island, or Captiva Island. The ride is $40, and reservations are required. If you’re prone to seasickness, don’t forget your Dramamine so you can enjoy sailing through the crystal waters of the Gulf. After disembarking at the barrier island dock, you need to travel a mile to the campground. Unless you’re eating nothing but snacks from the gift shop, you’ll probably have a hefty load of supplies. We recommend catching the tram, which shuttles campers and gear to the campground between 9am and 4pm. As soon as you arrive, you’ll realize how worth the trek it was. Whether you’re bunking at one of the 12 rustic cabins (which sleep up to six people) or posting up at the campground by the beach, you’re finally, totally, away from it all. Neither the cabins or campsites have electricity, which make the stars all the more bright. You’ll never want to car-camp again.

There is also no shortage of adventures and explorations to be had here, with plenty of nature trails, fish whispering, and kayak skimming awaiting.
