Title: Sandy Bar Ranch
At the Ranch
Located in the Karuk Homelands, Sandy Bar Ranch is nestled
in a beautiful valley carved out by the Klamath River. Our six
riverside redwood cabins are fully
equipped with a kitchen/living room, bedroom, bathroom and outdoor
deck. The small rural town of Orleans encompasses a diverse community
of Native Americans, organic farmers, artisans,
Forest Service personnel and local merchants.
At the Ranch you'll find an organic garden,
a fruit tree nursery, and handmade crafts.
Ask for a tour or try your hand at gardening while you're here.
Shiatsu massage is also available.
We are a collective enterprise dedicated to stewardship of
the land and the practice of permaculture.
In a time of rapidly disappearing wilderness, Sandy Bar offers
an out-of-the-way retreat for exploring the few remaining wild
areas in California. We hope visitors will treasure this wilderness
as we do.
As Sandy Bar continues to grow, we continue to search for
new collective members. We also
offer a number of work exchange
positions each year.
