Great location

Outdoor Campsite is located in the southern Sierra Nevada along the Tule River within Giant Sequoia National Monument and is available for 1-5 campers. Bring all of your own gear, food, and kitchen. Outdoor composting toilet and chemical toilet. Hot shower. The site is beautifilly situated over Tule River.

15% of our Airbnb proceeds go towards volunteer-driven land and river restoration projects with the local non-profit organization WildPlaces.

The space
Spontaneous decisions are rewarded here. Planning to camp? Camping to plan? A little under prepared? Super prepared? No concept of how seasons work, but with relentless determination to camp?

Luckily, you have found the Land that Xico and Mehmet stewards and your request to stay is immediately reviewed. Our little secluded paradise is a blast and accepts exceptional people. Friends from the Aztec, environmental justice, spiritual, and playful communities come here regularly.

No camp neighbors, no tourist shuttles, just straight up nature as it gets.
We are both accommodating hosts and are passionate about our community and the environment. Connect with us. Do some brain picking with us or just be surrounded by some juicy-land love.

"Xico and Mehmet are one another's dream weaver and run a dazzling array of ranch, nature, spirit and song," says recent guest Iggy.

The land has a communal patio equipped with an outdoor kitchen and a comfortable living/dining area next to a camp furnace (affectionally called The Franklin). The entire setup is warm and inviting and it's easy to find yourself cozied-up on a couch next to the fire with a book and their lovely pets. You will inevitably fall in love with the pets -- Tule the tour guide dog.

It's the best you're going to get for the price. It's only $10-$15 more than camping in the national parks but the solitude here is superior to designated camp slots in the parks.
And if you came to hang out with some Giant Sequoias, the Trail of 100 Giants is just an 1.5 hour drive from the property. Dome Rock and its climb opportunities is even closer a nice little spot with the perfect view overlooking the Sierra. Xico and Mehmet are knowledgeable locals and they can craft an experience for you if you just ask. Go out there and have fun!

Side tip: Visalia and Exeter Ca are near by eclectic small cities
