From their website: “Our site in Laguna Mountain is located deep inside the Cleveland National Forest by the Big Laguna Lake Trail. This mountain is one of the highest peaks in San Diego county at over 6,000ft elevation. It features some of the biggest and densest concentration of forests in the region.
This is a remote and beautiful campground away from it all. Each tree tent can accommodate up to 3 people (880lbs) and we can combine a few for larger groups. Your tree tent comes with sleeping pads, single or double sleeping bag, pillow, and lighting.”
Personal Experience: Alter Experiences definitely offers next-level, futuristic camping. We arrived at night and were greeted by what looked like these glowing, green space pods. It truly felt like an other-worldly experience. Sleeping in one these tree tents is kind of like a weightless, no-gravity experience. You are in an up-scale hammock, except with a thick, comfy sleeping bag & pillow and you’re completely enclosed which makes you feel safe.
I absolutely LOVE that we didn’t have to put anything up or take anything down. It was already done for us saving us lot of time and room in our car. There are solar-powered lanterns and small lights hanging in the trees giving it such a dreamy feel.

We made spiced wine (at the already set-up kitchen) and sat around the campfire soaking in the moment:
There are millions of visible stars on a clear night!
The next morning we finally got to see our surroundings! We came in early November when the leaves were changing colors.
Josh actually slept outside in this large hammock! I was way too cold to even consider doing that!
Here is where all the tasty food and warm drink concoctions were prepared. It comes stocked with everything you need to cook, including spices. You just bring your own food!
You better believe we grubbed before heading out on our hike!
