Great little campsite with some accommodations that are super thoughtful - a shaded tent area complete with water, private compost toilet, grill, table! We loved the animals everywhere (they weren't in our space); sheep, ducks, llamas, chickens! It felt like a petting zoo, in a good way:) Fresh eggs available. Sweet host.
We took a wine tasting day trip and returned with a bottle, which Patty made accessible by providing an opener and glasses. Cheers to our rescuer, just a text away! She also let me feed and pat the animals--llamas, sheep, goats, dogs, and chickens--who seemed to enjoy the contact as much as I did. I explained to my astonished husband that the "livestock" behave like pets because of Patty: she treats them with respect and affection, as nurses do :-)
Beautiful land and wonderful people. We got to pet the world's friendliest llama, watched deer wander through the pasture in the morning, collected fresh eggs and blackberries, and even spent some time hanging out with the landowners, who are very kind, cool people! Amity itself is a cute little town with a lovely coffee shop full of people who want to chat and frequent live music at the tavern next door, wine country is near at hand, and the ocean is only an hour away for a quick day trip.
We booked a second trip as soon as we got back home and are already looking forward to our next visit. :)
Scott and Paddy were wonderful hosts. They were very responsive by text, met us when we arrived, introduced us to the animals, and made us feel very comfortable and welcome. The pasture was large and we had to walk downhill to get to the campsite so they had a wagon ready for us to put our stuff in. This is not exactly glamping, the pasture is sometimes used by animals so if you are adverse to seeing goat droppings it might not be a good fit but it's not roughing it either. There is a covered area with a table for a camp stove and a composting toilet with a curtain and toilet seat. (fancy). We woke up in the morning to 3 does and a fawn outside our tent. Amity is a fun place to explore. The local coffee shop has great coffee and friendly people. Best of all we had a great time getting to know our hosts better. We will be back.
The hosts were welcoming and kind to our young toddlers, showing us their animals and letting the girls pet them. They gave us all the basic information for our site and offered winery and dining recommendations and were in general friendly and welcoming hosts. The camping itself was a bit random, pretty steep walk (lots of animal droppings) down to a small landing to pitch a tent. It was exposed to the road (we felt safe, but not a place that invited hanging out for a for a long time). Composting toilet is really a bucket with charcoal or pellets—it was clean, but slightly different than our expectations. Overall though, in an area with limited public land and camping (and a quick last minute trip on our part), we really appreciated the affordable place to pitch our tent for the evening. And the animals definitely made it worth it with our young kiddos. If that’s not your cup of tea, this may not be your place. If you are happy sleeping outside anywhere, then go for it!
