One down, seven more summer Hipcampouts to go! This past weekend we foraged our way around Camp Navarro (soon to be available to book on Hipcamp), learning about the native plants in the area with Forage SF and Juniper Ridge, swimming in the river, smelling the ground, and making an official Camp Navarro cabin spray from Douglas Fir and Rhododendron with Juniper Ridge’s badass mobile-distillation unit.
Thanks a million to everyone that attended, and to Eddie Bauer and their team for making our campouts possible. Everyone that attended received a Hipcamp + Eddie Bauer tote full of goodies (pictured below). Additionally, Eddie Bauer provided tents for everyone to sleep in amongst the redwood grove. We’re still recovering from a weekend of camping bliss, and are getting stoked for the next photography-themed campout in Joshua Tree. Get a ticket here!
Immerse your sights and senses in the visual recap below, and hopefully we’ll see you at the next one!

Three is important… we don’t remember why but we’ll believe anything Hall says.
Patrick recommends “Mushrooms Demystified” and “Radical Mycology”

Hall told us to all to put our nose in the ground for 10 minutes… So we did.

Foraged cocktail-slayer Lauren Devine made a special appearance to create a one-of-a-kind drink with Barr Hill Gin provided by Caledonia Spirits (cocktail recipe post to follow), and Evermore flowers made the dinner table and setting look epic with sustainably grown flowers and cut foliage from the property. Another thanks to Someone Company for serenading us with their beautiful and melodic live tunes.
Thanks to Coleman for hooking us up with coolers to keep our very important beverages cold and to Lodge Cast Iron for the dutch ovens to cook with! Also, props to Social Print Studio for printing out our schedules and to TCHO chocolate for keeping the s’more stoke alive.
See you at the next campout?
