Two-Night Family Glamping Trip at El Capitan Canyon
Two-night mid-week (Sunday - Thursday) stay for a family of four in a Cedar Cabin, a Safari Tent, or an Adventure Yurt, based on availabilty. Subject to availability and holiday periods excluded. El Capitan Canyon, just north of Santa Barbara along an unspoiled stretch of the California coast, is renowned as an all-season comfort camping destination. It was one of the first to be coined “luxury camping.” Nestled against the Los Padres National Forest with access to 3,500 acres of pristine nature preserve, the Canyon is set on 350 acres of rolling hills and creek canyons and is a five-minute walk to El Capitan State Beach. During the summer months, the Canyon becomes a place for families to reconnect as it offers a no-fuss, back-to-nature camp experience with s’mores by the fire, hiking and outdoor concerts. In the fall, couples arrive for a romantic getaway and groups come here for retreats, corporate think-tanks or relaxed fall weddings. Family-owned since 1975, El Capitan Canyon provides affordable luxury in nature. For accommodations, the property offers Cedar Cabins, Classic Canvas Safari Tents, Adventure Yurts, a Safari Cabin Suite and a new Meadow Suite. In terms of amenities, the property offers “spa camping,” theCanyon Market & Deli including BBQ and S’mores kits, guided walks to visit the Canyon's llama and goat herd, yoga and a ropes course, a heated swimming pool, and complimentary bikes to go exploring at the nearby beach and 15 miles of hiking trails through the Canyon's 300 acres of undeveloped foothills.
