Camping is free and is limited to 25 spots - group campsite. (Campsites allow up to 4 people per site.) Bring all of your own camping gear. Plan accordingly for all weather conditions. No campfires at this particular event. Recommendations: Tarps for under your tent because grass may be wet or damp, EZups/canopies, hiking boots if you walk the trails because some area may still be muddy and wet from the early January rain.
I will update this meetup page with current weather temps and condition one week prior to the event. Bodega Bay weather has been about 60-65 and sunny with amazing sunsets!
We recommend tarps for the ground under your tent. EZups/canopies okay. No campfires allowed at this particular event. Hiking boots recommended.
No power/electrical or hookups available at the ranch. Flashlights, lanterns and headlamps will be necessary, especially at night because the only thing shining is the stars and the moon. Cell phone service generally works, but can be spotty. Bring charged cell phones as you will not be able to charge them at the ranch.
Three (3) Platform Tents are also available for rent. Cost is $75 per tent, per night. Maximum 4 people per tent. First Come, First Reserved. See website below to reserve yours!
