Wow, what a gem. Book it before everyone finds out how adorable it is. Here are the highlights / need-to-know's:
- Super, super private, nestled in a forest
- Two cots with pillows, bring blankets/sleeping bags
- No electricity but there is some lighting (bring headlamps)
- Most amazing outhouse I've ever seen (flushing toilet!)
- Full bars with Verizon
- A bit of a windy drive up from Placerville, but worth it
Christina is incredibly responsive and helpful. I'll definitely be back!
Had a lovely time at Paradise Shores' newest addition. This airstream is so cool and surprisingly spacious.
The airstream sleeps two (my mom and sister, in this case), but Veronika was fine with me pitching a tent in front. It's a pretty big space. There's no bathroom in this one but the communal bathrooms are close by.
You also get:
- beach front spot
- private chiminea
- 3 outdoor chairs
- picnic table
- all dish and cookware you could ever need (including coffee maker, hot plate, oven, fridge)
This listing is also 10 minutes away from Travertine Hot Springs and an hour from Yosemite. Great home base!
This is the most beautiful campsite I have ever been to in my life. 360 views, completely private. Highly recommend!
Some other good things to know:
- 2 mile hike-in so pack accordingly
- bring your own water
- if you arrive before 6pm you might have the option to pay a $20 porter to carry your gear/firewood up
- firewood bundles available for $10
Can't say enough good things about this incredible site. Will definitely be back.
This is what Hipcamp is all about: beautiful views, private river, and totally secluded. Our group comfortably fit 4 tents at the Bluff site, which comes with a big picnic table, food storage box, and fire pit overlooking the valley.
The weather was amazing while we were visiting and we lounged in the natural pools all day (2 minute walk from site.)
The site is also very easy to find. We had no issues with our GPS and the hosts have tons of helpful signs to guide you once you're there.
I've been to dozens of Hipcamps and this has to be the most private, secluded site I've stayed at. The platform is amazing for lounging and cooking, and that little chiminea gets HOT. Perfect for chilly coastal breezes + heating up tortillas.
It's a bit of a drive once you turn off Highway 1, but the all-to-yourself ocean views are 100% worth it. Montrese has kindly set up a tent beside the tipi in case it gets too cold, but we had no issues and enjoyed staying in the tipi.
Make sure to do a tick check after you leave. We found a few on us. (But that's how you know you've found a sweet camping spot.)
The most picture-esque little cabin that there ever did be! Two can fit in the loft bed (which has a sky light), and another two can fit in the main bed. The wood stove came stocked with kindling and logs. There's also a communal "kitchen cabin" with power outlets, a stove, a sink, and a mini fridge.
Windy Hollow is a 2-minute drive from "downtown" Point Arena, which has coffee shops, a bar or two, and a market.
We'll definitely be back!
