In addition to our educational programs, Slide Ranch offers rustic facilities for private group or individual hire. The site is well-suited for retreats, workshops and conferences, as well as, family reunions, weddings and bar/bat mitzvahs.
Slide Ranch is located just north of Muir Beach on Highway One, overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Our beautiful site is approximately 30 minutes north of the Golden Gate Bridge.
The group campsite, a ten minute walk from the farmstead along a coastal trail, is located on a flat, grassy bluff overlooking the ocean, and can accommodate up to 40 people for overnight camping. Also at the site is a geodesic Dome useful for cooking, eating, and storing food. A propane powered stove-top, plates, cups, utensils, pots and pans are supplied. The presence of the Dome adds comfort and ease to the campsite, but it has not been constructed or maintained to accommodate sleeping. An outhouse and solar-powered lights are available at the site, though there is no running water or electricity.
The Yurt is a circular canvas structure with a clear skylight, wooden floor, and wood burning stove. From inside the Yurt, you can hear the muted sound of waves crashing on the rocky shore below. The Yurt can comfortably accommodate up to 40 people for meetings, workshops, dancing, performance art and other celebrations. We provide picnic tables and benches for 64 people. The Yurt has electricity, an outside source of cold drinking water and port-o-potty located near by.
Weddings, Birthdays & Special Events
Various sites at Slide Ranch can be used for celebrations and gatherings such as weddings and birthdays. In addition to the places mentioned above, our garden area under the shade of several cypress trees provides a lovely gathering space. (Depending on the size and nature of your event, additional fees may apply.)
