Inland from El Capitán State Beach, this ‘glamping’ resort is for those who hate to wake up with dirt under their nails. No cars are allowed up-canyon during peak season, making this woodsy resort more peaceful. Safari tents are rustic and share bathrooms, while creek-side cabins are more deluxe, some with kitchenette; all have an outdoor fire pit.
Borrow a bicycle to head to the beach, or schedule a massage. The property is about 20 miles west of Santa Barbara, off Hwy 101.
