Getting to Camp
Farm Camp is located approximately 90 miles north of San Francisco in the coastal redwoods of Sonoma County. Even though we are so close, you will feel like you are in a whole different world. Our camp address is below, but please be advised that if you are planning on using a GPS to navigate for you, most providers do not offer service in the Plantation area and you will likely lose your connection. Below are the two easiest routes to take to camp from the bay area.
34285 Kruse Ranch Road
Cazadero CA 95421
There are two primary routes for driving to camp from Highway 101. Option 1 is simpler with fewer windy roads and takes you through Guerneville along the Russian River. Option 2 is a little shorter and follows the coast. Both are beautiful.
Option 1: From Highway 101 North, take the River Road exit, just north of Santa Rosa and turn left (west). This exit is 45 miles north of the Golden Gate Bridge.
Follow River Road (Hwy 116) through Guerneville, bear right to stay on Hwy 116 in Monte Rio and continue to "T" at Hwy 1. Go right to Jenner. From Jenner, take Highway 1 north, 5 miles to the Meyers Grade turnoff and turn right just after the sign to "Plantation". Proceed for 13 miles on Meyers Grade Road, which changes into Seaview Road. Continue straight at the stop sign at Timber Cove Road. Turn left at the "Plantation" sign onto the gravel road at the junction of Kruse Ranch, Seaview and Hauser Bridge Roads.
Option 2: From Highway 101 north, in central Petaluma, take the Washington Street exit and go left (west). This exit is 30 miles north of the Golden Gate Bridge. Follow Washington Street through Petaluma, towards Bodega Bay. The road changes name and eventually merges with Highway 1 near Valley Ford. Continue on Highway 1 north through Bodega Bay and on to Jenner, approximately 35 miles.
From Jenner, take Highway 1 north, 5 miles to the Meyers Grade turnoff and turn right just after the sign to "Plantation". Proceed for 13 miles on Meyers Grade Road, which changes into Seaview Road. Continue straight at the stop sign at Timber Cove Road. Turn left at the "Plantation" sign onto the gravel road at the junction of Kruse Ranch, Seaview and Hauser Bridge Roads.
Plantation Farm Camp is fairly remote with limited options for accommodations in close proximity. The Timber Cove Inn (15 minutes from camp) and The Sea Ranch (45 minutes north of camp) are the two closest options.
The town of Bodega Bay is about 1 hour south of camp. The Bodega Bay Lodge and the Inn at the Tides are both good lodging options.
The nearest larger city would be Santa Rosa which is about 1.5 hours from camp. Everything is available there from hotels to Bed &Breakfasts.
Healdsburg is just north of Santa Rosa and is a quaint, small town with lots of charm and several options for accommodations (about 2 hours from camp). Consider the Healdsburg Inn, Madrona Manor, Healdsburg Hotel, or any number of Bed &Breakfasts.
A distinction should be made between the county of Sonoma (westernmost portion of wine country where camp is located) and the cities of Sonoma and Napa which will be close to 2.5 hours from camp. There are endless options for winetasting and accommodations in the towns of Napa, St. Helena and Calistoga.
