This is not just camping! Guests can explore their wild side as the hosts have kayaks, ATVs, an eight-wheel amphibious vehicle to go river and winery touring, archery equipment, and the host will even teach guests to fly fish. The host is a licensed and bonded fishing guide and will advise guests free of charge on where to fish, but a $100 fee is required (payable separately via cash, PayPal, or credit card) for guiding on the drift boat, amphibious watercraft, kayaks, or ATV’s.

Guests should note this is a Quonset type hut, but it is, in essence, a large tent with a rounded shape.
Like tents everywhere, the floor of it is thin rests on uneven dirt or earth and there can be small depressions and occasional rounded unlevel areas caused by roots or hardened dirt.
Occasionally (two or three times a summer/fall) the vineyards use a pump located next to the site. It is a little noisy. Guests will refund half of the money if guests decide to stay as this can be annoying. If guests decide to leave, the hosts will refund them one half of the time they are here (minimum one day), and a full refund for any time not spent.
Guests should note that if the pump becomes active before they arrive, the hosts may contact them to see if they would like to cancel, and if so, no refund or negative review will be given.
The host may drive an ATV near guests' site, but not through it, on the way to the river.
The host is a licensed and bonded fishing guide and can advise guests free of charge on where to fish. There is a $100 fee (payable separately via cash, PayPal or credit card) for guiding on the drift boat, amphibious watercraft, kayaks or ATV’s
There are several miles of the river near the lodge with decent holding areas for trout and salmon. This river is excellent for fly casting as there are many sandbars without obstruction to your back casts. The host encourages bank fishing and patiently fishing each hole while guests walk along the river.
If guests have a flotation/pontoon type device or some other vessel, the host can drop guests off upriver for a float or pick guests up from the Hut and head down river to the next bridge.
The river itself is very isolated from civilization in this 16-mile stretch, despite its proximity to the Bay Area. Guests will feel as though they are in a wilderness setting due to the huge vineyards providing a buffer to any development, roads or highways. Early in the year guests may have to drag their pontoon boat over a few shallow spots.
The fish average 6 to 8 pounds, and, like all steelhead, fight like demons and are either wild or hatchery born. Roe, lures, and flies all work well. The regulations prevent the use of bait until later in the season, so guests should check the rules.
