A stay at Shelterwood Campground in Healdsburg, California combines the indulgences of wine country with a majestic forest bordering the coastal redwoods.

Shelterwood Campground is one you won’t soon forget. Canvas tents are arranged for cozy camping in the middle of a 400-acre sustainable and family-owned timberland. Each tent is built on a platform deck and comes outfitted with beds and bedding. Communal fire pits bring everyone together outside.

With three tent cabins, two king-sized beds, and one queen-sized, the Juniper Ridge Site is ideal for an intimate family or friends reunion. You can even claim the whole facility for a campground wedding, immersed in a stunning forest canopy.

Campers can swim in Mill Creek and enjoy miles of hiking trails just outside of the camping quarters. Or plop yourself down in an Adirondack chair and do nothing at all.

The price tag for a night at Shelterwood is not small. At $185 per night, you are getting unique access to private land and luxury amenities. Online reviews rave about how Shelterwood combines the comforts of home with the kind of star-lit sky you only find when you venture into nature.
