Luxurious Camping at Treebones Resort

Originally added by The Outbound Collective

Enjoy plush ocean view yurts with redwood decks, fireplaces, and queen size beds. Treebones hosts 5 campsites and a “Human Nest” that sleeps two. The property also hosts a heated ocean view pool and hot tub, outdoor sushi bar, and organic garden.

If you’ve always wanted to experience Big Sur, but sleeping on the ground isn’t really your thing, Treebones might be exactly what you’re looking for. Nestled along Big Sur’s beautiful coastline, Treebones Resort offers expansive views and easy access to everything the area has to offer. With a typical day that consists of sipping morning coffee on your redwood deck, hiking nearby trails, exploring the coast, and then winding down in the hot tub, you might never want to leave.

With 16 comfy yurts to choose from, a beautiful main lodge, an outdoor sushi bar, and a heated swimming pool and hot tub, this should be at the top of your Bay Area glamping list. Check for availability and make your reservations here.

Awesome glamping spot

My wife and I stayed in the Nest. We LOVED it. We definitely want to go back soon and book a yurt, or maybe the treehouse. Lounging in that pool on a hot day with that view was the best.

This is "glamping" at its finest. The resort overlooks the ocean, which is perfect for sunsets on clear evenings. If you're here for dinner, be sure to make reservations in advance (either for the sushi bar or the restaurant, can be made the day of). The sushi bar is popular for good reason (the fish is fresh and delicious), and they only serve sushi until it runs out (my group was at the beginning of the second wave, and they already ran out of salmon!)

If the yurts are out of your price range, try booking the "Sibley tent" at the bottom of the property - it's a big teepee on a raised wooden platform (big enough to fit a double-sized air mattress, with room to spare) that's got amazing, unobstructed views of the Pacific. The marine layer fog does creep in every morning and afternoon so it can be a bit chilly, especially in the fall, but nothing a trip up to the main lodge's fireplace can't fix! Property also features a small pool/jacuzzi and sushi bar, which is a nice treat. There's never a bad time to visit Big Sur!

We want to acknowledge and thank the past, present, and future generations of all Native Nations and Indigenous Peoples whose ancestral lands we travel, explore, and play on.
