The tent cabins at Vallecitos offer a simple, yet comfortable, low-cost accommodation. The tent cabins are on wooden platforms with canvas walls. Each has a bed, a small table and chair. There are no windows in the tent cabins, however, the opening can be spread wide to invite in sunlight. Some of the tent cabins have a propane heater. Unheated tent cabins are only available when the weather permits. Tent cabins are stand-alone structures. Tent cabins are single occupancy.
Tent Camping or Campers
There are only a few retreats when guests may bring their own tent or camper. Please see your specific retreat of interest to determine if tent camping is an option. If tent camping is NOT listed as an accommodation option, it is not available for that retreat.
Bedding: Bedding is not provided in retreat housing. Guests bring their own warm bedding/sleeping bag or may rent the Ultimate Comfort Pack which includes sleeping bag, fitted sheet, flat sheet, pillow case, towel and wash cloth.
Bathrooms: There are outhouses located throughout the Vallecitos property and there is also a bathhouse with flush toilets and showers close to the lodge. Accommodations do not have water. Please see the map below, which shows the locations of outhouses and the bathhouse.
Electricity: Vallecitos is “off the grid” and uses only solar power. Accommodations have a small solar powered lamp. There are no electrical outlets for personal appliances or electronic devices in the accommodations. However, the bathhouse does have electrical outlets and while we encourage guests to use as little power as necessary, these outlets can be used on a limited basis (for hair drying in cold weather, for example). It is a good idea to bring an adequate flashlight and other battery powered lighting for your accommodation (a reading light, for example).
