Working farm next to miles of state park. This campsite is steps away from stunningly beautiful hiking, bicycling and horse trails in the redwoods that open up to the ocean and Santa Cruz mountain views to the west; to the east is a working farm with an orchard, chickens, baby goats, one horse, one baby horse, one pony, one giant mule, and a wild Kiger mustang that may be grazing near your site. It is a roughly 4 mile hike or ride to the ocean from the tent. The house is not far from the site, but the tent is still very private.
There is a platform in the redwood stand behind the tent with an extra toilet and place to hang the solar shower (which is sunning on a chair 30 yards away in the orchard). Behind that campers will find the gate to the park, and the trail which is just beyond the gate. Either direction is beautiful. Note, the 5 horses came come and visit you, do not worry, they will not hurt you.
Very important: in order to make a fire in the interior tent stove, you must bring your own VERY dry kindling, LOTS of paper and wood. We have wood on site, but during the winter months it is sometimes too damp for this stove. Start small, be patient, it takes skill for any stove like this when it's cold.
For parties over 2 campers, there are two blow up camping mats under the bed, along with a backup blowup mattress. The pumps are in the right cabinet next to the bed along with the blue toilet bags.
DIRECTIONS: GPS does not work. Turn left at the big blue colorfully painted mailboxes and hazard triangle three driveways after the Waldorf school, go straight past the stop sign for a quarter mile (bumpy dirt road, just go slow my mini does fine), turn left at the little blue truck before the house at the Tentrr sign, follow to the end of the wood chip road (100 yards, 20 yards from the tent). You will have to go through an electric gate, just make sure you touch only the red handles and be sure to close it again. There is no cell service at the site. ALWAYS BE AWARE YOU SHARE THIS PROPERTY WITH MOUNTAIN LIONS Although you may never see them, keep all food in containers. Dogs are welcome, though are best kept inside the tent during the night because of mountain lions and coyotes. There are horses on the property who are very friendly and do not mind dogs, but take care with dogs around them just in case. There is poison oak not far from the site, take caution. Please pack out trash if possible. During the fire season open fires are not allowed, but the interior stove can still be used.
This site is equipped with solar lights, battery powered candles, and garbage bags. We have four blankets in the tent for you to use, but please note - you must bring your own sheets/additional bedding! If conditions are right, we provide firewood for you - but if conditions are damp, the firewood will be damp, and we'd suggest you pick some dry wood up when you come.
