Camping in the chestnut orchard.

Not far from Goat Canyon is the ‘Into Nature’ camp, a small and private farm facility with a chestnut orchard campsite. The camp chef will get everything set up for us to make pizzas, and we’ll cook them ourselves in the farm’s pizza oven.

Please contact us if you'd like more details about the plan.
