About Sasquatch Meadows
Sasquatch Meadows (named after the man, or "thing" himself) features two private campsites, which are nestled in a grove of pine trees. You can catch some shade at your site, go dip in your own private swimming hole, or stargaze in the adjacent meadow. You’ll also have a shared flush toilet(bring TP!) and a gravel square for a propane stove (when weather permits). You really can't go wrong at Sasquatch!

The vibe at Sasquatch Meadows
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
This is the best campsite I’ve ever been to. It’s amazing to be in a place that remote. The diversity of the experience is incredible - with the swimming hole, waterfall, woods, open space to see the stars, and even a flushing toilet! I wish Hipcamp nothing but success.
Sasquatch meadows is well worth the trip! The drive in is 20 minutes on a steep dirt road. They just put in a new bathroom and are building fire rings. We chose to sleep under the stars. Be sure to check out upper falls. Also be aware of bears.
Sasquatch Meadows is a magical experience! The drive is long but worth it. Make sure you do the 10ish minute walk to Upper Falls! That's where the magic is. Just follow the road back towards the fork. Oh, and don't forget to star gaze in the meadow!
The bathroom was great and the camp spot was nice, but the swimming hole... Oh man, that swimming hole was magical! I almost forgot! When we were headed back, the way was not as clear and we took a wrong turn. Maybe a few exit signs would help. Overall it was a wonderful trip for the kiddos and I. Thank you!
Overall it was great! It’s in way more of a pristine condition than public places. The owners are awesome, they gave us helpful pointers and were very friendly. The site itself was great, there’s a lovely open meadow, and the creek is in such close proximity. My son loved the turtle in the swimming hole! Wildlife there is amazing.
Definitely more expensive than your average camping experience, but worth it completely.

I suppose it's best to start from the beginning....the path which travel occurs, weaves through lakes, forgotten townships and an abundance of beauty. "4WD recommended" however, we made it (alive) with a Fiat500, up and down the unpaved road to the quiet sanctuary of Sasquatch Meadows.
Upon arrival, the camp was well maintained; cut grass, practically new picnic table (w/other folding tables - possibly left behind from other adventurers) and the "perk" of a new-ish lavatory (flushing toilet w/a washing basin outside).
The campsite poured into the meadow with paths spilling into your private brook.
I wish I had the words to describe the blankets of stars that surrounded the meadow at night and the calm of silence however, you'll just have to experience it for yourselves.
Things you'll use;
- A sense of adventure with the confidence of driving off-road (in a fiat people!).
- Sun screen & Bug spray.
- Waterproof shoes & floaties; the river is heavenly and spills into a mirid of swimming holes however, the rocks are slippery and the floaties just bring-on-the-fun.
I would recommend at least two days for this venture, there is just too much to enjoy.
Finding the site was a little trickier than we expected thanks to a misplaced Park Here sign and some site selection confusion upon arrival. Our confirmation had us booked in site #2 but the directions directed us to site #1. There were already guests at site #2, so we just set up camp in site #1. Site #1 is the more private of the two sites, so we didn't have a problem with this.
The site itself is relatively compact, with just enough space to pitch a five-person tent. Be aware of the abundant poison ivy and poison oak. It is everywhere and put a damper on exploring the surrounding bush. The mosquitoes are something fierce in the afternoon and evening. We sprayed ourselves with deet from head to toe and still walked away with a couple dozen bites each after just one night. Strangely enough, they were worse at the campsite than the water.
Restrooms are located in a simple outhouse with a flush toilet. There are two sinks that provide non-potable water. This was a nice surprise. The restroom was recently ravaged by a small animal that shredded whatever toilet paper remained into confetti. This, and the overflowing paper waste bucket, could definitely have used a cleaning by the landowners.
Going further afield, there is a great swimming hole right by Sasquatch Meadows, larger and deeper than the swimming area at Upper Falls. We also made the journey to Upper Falls and had the area to ourselves for a couple hours. A very peaceful spot with a couple flat rocks seemingly made for lounging (and yoga!). Other campers saw a rattlesnake on the path leading down to the falls so be aware.
Very secluded, which is nice. Lots of bugs so dont forget your off spray but there's a toilet and running sinks at your site. Waters are gorgeous and I wish I was there to explore a little longer. We met the property manager on the way out so THERE ARE HUMANS CONNECTED TO THIS PLACE! Don't be scared. Meeting him on our way out made me feel better about stayijg there again in the future.
We enjoyed this site - it was very secluded. Nobody was there, we had the place to ourselves, such a treat! The meadow was perfect for stargazing. We put our air mattress in the middle of the meadow and had a wonderful evening of clear sky and warm temp. The stars were great. Lots of mosquitoes in the area - it is critical to spray every exposed part of your body. We used a non-deet spray and it worked fine. The creek access here is limited. There's one nice spot but there's nowhere to really sit and hang out. The bathroom/outhouse is wonderful. Flushing toilet worked great and was clean. Sink and good mirror. Big sink on the outside served well for washing dishes. The whole area was very clean - not a speck of garbage.
Absolutely beautiful! The swimming hole is so peaceful.
One note on directions: when you get to the fork that says "upper falls" to the left and "sasquatch meadows" to the right, you follow the road to the right towards sasquatch meads and it says "park here" immediately. Do not park here. Turn down the road to the right and continue down. You will see the camps. It wasnt clearly marked to continue down the road and we were confused. we stayed at the first "park here" sign for a while looking around and finally decided to drive down the road. Good thing we did!
GORGEOUS!! Your own swimming hole, a meadow to set up your tent in, and some stunning waterfalls about a 10 min walk up the road. And the stars were unreal. It would have been nice to have a little bit more signage, we arrived at about the same time as the campers who were staying at the other site, and we had both set up our tents in the wrong place before we realized that the actual campsites were a little further down a road to the right of the main meadow. Also it would have been nice to have the sign for Upper Falls include how far up the road it was. But definitely coming back here with friends!
Sasquatch Meadows is incredibly remote. We didn't see any other campers during our stay, and had the entire place to ourselves. Be sure to bring the essentials: water, food, toilet paper, etc as there is none available on the property. There is a flush toilet which was great!
This is probably one of the most amazing campsites that I've ever been to. Nothing beats the privacy and nature immersion that you get here. We were lucky to have the entire meadow to ourselves. Next to the site you can swim and it turned out to be a great spot for floaties. Also, whatever you do, don't miss on the Upper Falls. We spent a whole day floating there and it was magical. As camping in the woods goes, make sure to bring bug spray. You don't really notice the mosquitoes that much during the day, but during dusk they were definitively more present.
You also have the convenience of having an actual toilet in an enclosed bathroom. Make sure to keep the door closed to avoid too many flying bugs hanging around inside. The host recently added a gas fire ring, which was nice, but make sure to bring some chairs to sit around it.
This is a very remote campsite. You'll have to drive over 20 minutes in a steep dirt-road. You also won't find any groceries stores for at least 40 minutes (including the dirt road) so come prepared and bring tons of drinking water.
We'll be definitively coming back to this spot!
We really enjoyed our stay at Sasquatch Meadows. It was amazingly peaceful and quiet, with the lovely sound of the creek adding to the atmosphere. A nice deep swimming hole just steps away. The brand new bathroom was an added plus! Wow! I think we were really blessed because no one else was there and looks like possibly three sites close by.
Don't miss seeing the upper falls! Excellent place to hang for awhile but it's through some ones camp:( we will absolutely try to stay at upper falls next time and won't mind if you are coming through to check it out!!
Sasquatch Meadows was epic. Be warned that it is a bit of a drive, but we found it was worth it! The swimming hole is incredible -- be sure to also walk up to the Upper Falls for a waterfall swimming hole!
Overall awesome camping site, though be aware that you are pretty alone out there. Bring bug spray.
Epic place !!! Off the grid ! The only thing we didn't prepare for was those bees that love to hang around trash cans etc. Anytime we would get food out they would show up like crazy. I would get some citrinila candles for my next trip and plenty bug spray ! The swimholes were best I've ever seen ! Like something out of a magazine !
This is one of those places you reluctantly write a review of because it's so clean and perfect and quiet you want to keep it to yourself. What a wonderful spot. The swimming hole at the campsite was incredibly beautiful, and the whole area was teeming with life. (Including mosquitos, so be prepared!) Definitely accessible by two-wheel drive smaller passenger vehicles during good conditions, take it slow and you'll be fine.
I think I got about 10 extra wrinkles from this trip. The swimming hole was gorgeous and such a special treat. But at the campsite, the bugs were extremely intense despite our bug spray, wipes, and special repellent clothes. We want to go back with the hopes that if we are more prepared we might be able to enjoy the scenery without being constantly swarmed. If we do make it back, we will definitely try out upperfalls instead.
