Glamping & outdoor hospitality retreats with Alter Experiences. Sleep in the trees under the stars & rediscover the joys of pristine nature & the great outdoors. Deer Peak is our family glamping site in the Cleveland National Forest, Burnt Rancheria campground. This site comes with 2 luxury bell tents. One bell tent comes with a queen mattress & the other features 2 full beds. This site also features a triple tree tent that can sleep an additional 3 people, as well as a hammock.

The space
Laguna Mountain is one of the highest peaks in San Diego at an elevation of over 6,000ft. It's part of the Cleveland National Forest network and one of the most bio-diverse habitats in all of Southern California. It features some of the tallest pine, conifer and oak trees in the region, as well as beautiful open space preserves as far as the eye can see.

The area is extremely remote and secluded. Our glamping sites are located in the communal campgrounds of Laguna./El Prado & Burnt Rancheria campgrounds, right off Sunrise Highway. The closest town is Julian about 30 minutes away. It's about a 15 minute drive to Lake Cuyamaca. The drive along S1 Sunrise HWY is an experience in itself, with contrasting landscapes between our mountain forests and the Anza-Borrego desert.

Your site comes with a combination of both tree tents, bell tents and hammocks.

Bell tents are fully outfitted and spacious with therapeutic mattress and / or sofa bed (s). They are staged with the ultimate comfort and luxury in mind, featuring rugs, plush floor pillows, solar powered lights and propane heater.

Our Tenstile tree tents are a lightweight treehouse that uses 3 anchor points to create a "living space" suspended between trees. Our Tentsiles are fun, safe & bring a whole new dimension to the camping experience.

Our elevated tree tents offer a very unique nature immersive and outdoor experience.

Your glamping site also comes with standard hotel amenities, private lounge area, outdoor kitchen space & outdoor fire-pit. Enjoy camping without the hassle!

Facilities & Amenities:

- Hot shower/bathroom available with either flush or composting toilet.

- Your tree tent comes complete with sleeping pad, sleeping bag & pillow. A floor lounge area is provided underneath your tree tent. Our tree tents can accommodate 2 or 3 people per unit. Our double bubble can accommodate a family of between 5-6 (limited availability).

- Drinking water provided

- Towels, soap and shampoo are provided

- Hanging compartments & bins to keep things organized

- Firepit is provided for your lounge & seats around the campfire (wood fires only permitted in designated fire pits)

- First Aid Kit

- Camp kitchen with cooking & serving utensils - 17' Blackstone Griddle, portable cooker, pots/pans, kettle, mugs, essential spices & oils, coffee, hot chocolate & sugar. All you really need to bring is your cooler & food to last for your trip. You also have the option to eat at nearby restaurants.

Facilities & amenities are standard across our multiple sites, but the locations will vary depending on the season & availability. Many factors come into play for us to deliver this one of a kind outdoor experience. Our primary sites are under permit with the Cleveland National Forest & all of our sites are within the general vicinity of Mount Laguna - Lake Cuyamaca - Julian.

Please be aware that you'll be staying in a communal campground in the Cleveland National Forest. Our sites are very private with your own area, kitchen, fire-pit and parking. Only bathroom facilities are communal.

My love for nature, environmental conservation and travel has led me to some of the world's most remote & exotic travel destinations. Our tourism model for Alter Experiences came about as a result of over 10 years travel to many eco-tourism destinations around the world. From a treehouse in India’s rainforests to a tent in the sub-saharan deserts of the Red Sea; these & many other examples of sustainable tourism models have inspired our hospitality concept.
