This mountain paradise is quite literally in the middle of nowhere, almost an hour drive through wilderness cow pastures to one of the highest points in the Green Horn Mountains outside of Bakersfield. You may even wake up to the soft snuffling of cows surrounding your tent at 5am. On hot days, we’ll take a little trip down to the cool Kern River to play. The sunsets are phenomenal and the stars are spectacular.
We provide much of what you need – You bring just your tent, sleeping gear and food/drink. (And anything else you want.) We provide all your kitchen needs and other camping supplies, a warm shower, firewood and gourmet s’mores! (More info soon.) The tower is available as a cabin to sleep in, (twin beds) and we will have a lottery for interested parties at a later date. More detailed travel information will be posted later. Dogs are welcome.
This trip is limited to 12 people, or 4 to 5 tents, whichever comes first. Quality tent space is available but limited.
NOTE: This is semi-primative camping. There is no real electricity or plumbing. However there is a very clean outhouse, and we bring supplies to have a hot shower. We also bring solar panels and batteries to keep us connected to the barely-there cellular signal. The closest civilization is over an hour drive.
Price: $65 per person for the weekend. Includes firewood, supplies and shower water. Payment due by May 1st, 2018.
