…Treebones Resort in Big Sur, California.
Big Sur is my favorite place in the world and I’ve been lucky enough to visit many times, but I’ve never camped there. And what Treebones offers goes far beyond camping.
Even their basic campsites are perched on the edge of the world, with front row seats to the Pacific Ocean and Redwood Forest. Campers can also rent safari tents (pictured above on the right), but their Mongolian-style yurts are the most popular forms of lodging.
For those wishing to get closer to nature, Treebones also offers these one-of-a-kind nests.
No one is truly “roughing it” here since all guests have access to modern showers, a swimming pool, hot tub, yoga classes, hiking, kayaks, massages and two gourmet restaurants. Hippie chic.
At least stop by Treebones’ Oceanview Sushi Bar if you are through Big Sur–no tent required.
As far as packing, I’m thinking:
I hope I’ve inspired you to go on a camping trip (or at least a picnic!). Have a wonderful weekend and enjoy these links on my favorite place on California’s coast:
