Glamping with Madonna
Overnight in a Yurt at Mount Madonna County Park
So you want to go see Madonna, but don’t want to camp out for this big-ticket experience? Glamp out instead! Set high in the Santa Cruz Mountains, with an entourage of spectacular redwood trees, Mount Madonna County Park is 3,200 acres of beautiful secluded land dominated by redwoods, with hiking trails, four campgrounds, and five awesome yurts! What’s a yurt? It’s a domed structure with canvas siding and a wooden floor, so it’s sturdier than a tent, and you don’t have to set it up. Madonna’s yurts are ruggedly elegant. Set beneath hulking redwoods, the yurts have bunk beds and fold-out futons inside, with a wrap-around deck and picnic table to encourage plenty of time spent outside. There are also showers nearby (for those who just had to know). You get to enjoy the great outdoors for less than the cost of hotel, and without the hassle of … you know … sleeping on the ground! Rather rough it old-school? There are 125 campsites at Mount Madonna. Eat al fresco in spacious grassland studded in oaks, and enjoy one of the county’s rare ocean views. This Madonna venue is amazing!
