Big Sur Visitor Bureau - Treebones Resort

Even more remote than Big Sur itself, closer to San Simeon than Carmel, Treebones Resort is luxury camping with spectacular scenery, world-class hospitality, an outdoor sushi bar, a restaurant, heated pool and hot tub, and the one and only human nest, 10 foot high with a futon inside, designed by an artist with an imagination.


There are 16 yurts and five campsites, all with incredible views and each enchanting in its own way.
Yurts were used in Mongolia because they were light and portable. The Treebones yurts are on a foundation, so they're not going anywhere, and the canvas walls are thin enough to hear raindrops. Showers and restrooms are shared and centrally located.

At night, if the breeze comes from the south you can hear elephant seals barking on the shores below and during the day, if you're perched on whale rock, you might see gray whales in the spring or blue or humpback whales in the summer and fall.

A true "green" business, Treebones collects eggs from their chickens and serves fresh fruit and vegetables grown from the Treebones garden.

Like many Big Sur businesses
, Treebones Resort is family built and family operated.
