    The trailer was very comfortable and well maintained, and the property was equipped with everything needed for comfort camping. The property is actually a small ghost town! The cook house is in the old post office, they have their garage in the old gas station, and there is a hut there that the Sinclair brothers built (cool piece of history). The swimming hole across the road was an amazing chill place to spend a hot day. We brought our inflatable rafts and it was lovely floating amongst the lily pads and watching the turtles. I would recommend bringing some floatables for anyone who is squeamish about seaweed.

    We had a grizzly bear come out onto the lawn in broad daylight at the property. He was just passing through, but it was a good reminder that this is bear country and to be ready at all times. It was exciting...but also very scary. We were practicing good food safety, but this also reinforces why this is so important. The bear didn’t seem interested in sticking around and I’m sure that it’s because it has never found food there.

    We hiked to the forest fire lookout which had stunning views. We also hiked Bugaboo Falls. There is a rainbow at the end and a really cool overhang rock that makes for a perfect rainbow photo op 🙂! There is another hike to Diana Lake a short drive from the property (10 mins). We had planned to do that one, but got rained out.

    The Spilli Café is outstanding and BeeLand was pretty cool also. It was nice to be able to walk over from the camp and enjoy some high quality home cooked food as a treat.

    The owners dogs were friendly and well behaved and we loved their chickens and chicks too! 🐥 All in all, I’d recommend this place for a family get away or chill friend getaway. Thanks for having us at your lovely property/town!

    View across the swimming hole. More breathtaking views!One of many turtles spotted! Enjoying the swimming hole ( :
