Sorry, the 2017 camping season is now officially closed, although we may reopen before April with limited self check in sites.
We are open for camping most Friday and Saturday nights from April through October.
Please familiarize yourself with the Campground Rules before you come to get the most out of your time here. Also, all visitors and campers must sign a Waiver of Liability upon arrival. If you're new to camping out, check out the camping tips on the sidebar, or consider taking a quick class.

The camp hugs the bottom slope of Mount Ellen in the short and steep Santa Cruz Mountains. We have lots of hiking and biking trails in the area. We are just ten minutes from Pescadero Beach and the Pescadero Marsh Natural Preserve. We are also very close to Sam McDonald Park (and its popular Heritage Grove Trail) and Pescadero Creek Park. You can also use the campground as your base for visiting Half Moon Bay for popular festivals or ocean excursions. Or, take a tour in our friend's beautiful VW bus!
Short and Long Term work trade stays are available via Help Exchange.
Contact us directly if you want to plan an off-night stay, a larger group camp out, your day trip, events, retreats, or skillshares and workshops.
If you want to come check us out first, we have general visiting hours on Saturday from 2pm-6pm, April-October. An appointment is required by contacting us via email or the contact form below.
Please email us or use the web form to get in touch. While we do have a phone, it is for emergency and business use only. Sorry, we do not have the staffing to respond to phone calls about visiting or camping.
