Get back to nature while staying close to home.

Save gas, save time - a wilderness experience is only minutes away for your family or group. Camp in a redwood forest, dine alfresco in a rolling, oak-studded grassland. Nap away an afternoon next to a sparkling creek. And best of all, the price is right.

Now’s your chance, take your first step to Santa Clara County’s great outdoors. Make sure to stake your claim and reserve a site that’s right for you:

  • A maximum of 2 sites may be reserved together.  2 sites will accommodate 16 people.
