AUTOCAMP RUSSIAN RIVER
AutoCamp is an innovative Airstream resort with locations in Santa Barbara, the Russian River Valley of Sonoma County and Yosemite, California. Inspired by the wanderlust and adventure of the great American road trip, AutoCamp is an unparalleled luxury Airstream camping experience for people who love the outdoors.
Our team worked in close partnership with the hospitality brand to develop an unprecedented boutique hotel destination, elevated through innovative architecture and unique guest amenities. Anacapa designed the AutoCamp Russian River site, including a 3,000 square foot mid-century modern inspired Clubhouse, 24 Custom Airstreams and 10 Luxury Tents. Interior furnishings and decor were fashioned by San Francisco-based Geremia Design.

CLUBHOUSE // Blurring the lines between indoors and outdoors, the open-air Clubhouse offers immersive views of the surrounding redwood forest and adjacent creek from its interior and patio spaces. Fabricated from board formed concrete walls, rough-sawn redwood ceilings and blackened steel, the pavilion captures the material qualities of its location and was developed to withstand the sometimes harsh conditions of the relative climate. The Clubhouse's impressive mid-century modern-inspired design features a reception area and communal dining, gathering and events spaces for guests.
CUSTOM AIRSTREAMS // Our team custom-designed the interiors for AutoCamp's Airstreams in direct cooperation with Airstream USA. The Airstreams feature bright, spacious interiors with top-grade kitchens and full-size spa-inspired bathrooms with a walk-in shower. Mid-century modern design meets contemporary luxury with walnut floors and modern finishes. Luxurious amenities, including down bedding and linens by Coyuchi, mattresses by Casper, bathrobes, Malin+Goetz bath products and custom art, elevate the hospitality standard in each Airstream.
LUXURY TENTS // We custom-designed luxury tent accommodations for AutoCamp in direct cooperation with Sheridan Tent & Awning; the gold standard for authentic canvas tents since 1909. An American classic, these Western wall tents are handcrafted in Sheridan, Wyoming. Made with Grade A canvas, each custom tent features adjustable side and back windows for cross-ventilation and climate control. Comfortably accommodating up to two guests, each tent is generously sized, featuring a queen-sized bed and plush linens, a closet area, storage for kitchen & bathroom supplies, and a private outdoor seating area. Electrical outlets and lighting are included to accommodate the modern-day camper.
The success of AutoCamp's first two locations - Santa Barbara & Russian River - has inspired the launch of new locations in California and nationwide over the next 5 years, including AutoCamp Yosemite, opening February 2019.
