Welcome to Sandy Bar Ranch

Just inland from the Redwood Coast lies the Klamath Region, a little-known corner of Northern California with winding rivers, granite canyons, majestic mountains and miles of hiking trails waiting to be explored.  Our riverside cabins are on the banks of the  Klamath, with private swimming, a peaceful setting and lots of good fishing access.  Enjoy the view of the river from your private deck and sleep with your door open to the sounds of the river.  The warm, sunny interior of the Klamath offers an alternative to the cool and foggy Redwood Coast, and you'll be far from the crowds.  Our redwood, pet friendly cabins come with a full kitchen & linens and a deck that looks over the river.  We can arrange whitewater rafting trips, point you in the direction of the best hiking, or you can just relax by the river and explore on your own to see what you find.  You won't be disappointed. 

Ranch Report

Sandy Bar Ranch

Fishing conditions have improved lately, with better visibility and a better bite.  Debris flows from summer wildfires in August, combined with a warm Fall really slowed fishing down.  We're now headed solidly for cooler temps and a bit of much needed moisture.  Anglers are reporting more adults this year, half pounders are out there, but less prevalent than normal.

The Redwood Coast, 2018 'Best in the U.S."

The North Coast of California has hidden coves, majestic Redwoods and miles of secluded beaches.  Voted number one in Lonely Planet's 2018 "Best in the U.S." destinations, the Redwood Coast offers hiking, beachcombing,  quirky culture and unparalleled scenery, with only one drawback: it's foggy and cold for most of the summer.  We're located just inland from the Redwood Coast, without the fog and crowds of the summer tourist season.  Our favorite and most direct route to the coast is over Bald Hills Rd., which connects to Redwood National Park, and one of our favorite stretches of the north coast, including Ladybird Johnson Grove, Fern Canyon, Prairie Creek Redwoods and Gold Bluffs Beach.  The drive takes about 1 hour and forty five minutes, and winds through the beautiful grasslands of upper Redwood National Park, a seldom-visited corner where you're likely to spot elk, deer, bear and hawks.  The route includes an eight mile unpaved section which may be bumpy certain times of the year, but is kept in good condition, even for 2-wheel drive low clearance vehicles.  For more info on this route see our Directions page

Words cannot describe the beauty of this location...   I have never felt so at peace with the world around me.   It as one reviewer stated "Paradise" on the river.   My next trip to Orleans I plan on staying not less than six weeks at Sandy Bar Ranch.  -BJ, Tripadvisor



All I can say is I wish I had more time to stay on the Ranch! We will definitely be back next time we're in this remote, fantastic corner of California. This place is rustic in the most complimentary sense of the word, while also providing everything one might need for an off-the-beaten-path type experience. Highly recommend for those looking to get away from it all.   –Jaime, Airbnb
