Wow! This place is so great!! Steve was such a gracious host, he greeted us right when we arrived and showed us his beautiful property that included multiple flat tent spaces in amongst the garden, a bathroom on site, and best of all the creek that runs along the back of his property. Steve was playing a gig in town the night we stayed so he graciously invited us to watch, and we are glad that we did!! We had such a great time getting to watch Steve jam with his fellow musician friends. They were all so welcoming and happy to talk and share with us!! In addition to getting to hang with the local musicians in town, we also got a chance to plug our guitar into an amp and make a little music of our own right on site! We also found time to lounge in the creek swimming holes before the show, which was such a treat when it came to beating the California summer heat! The property was private and secluded and the only neighbors we seemed to notice were the donkeys right next door that provided our all natural alarm call in the morning. All in all this was a fabulous stay with a fabulous host!! We hope to be back soon!

There were plenty of perfectly flat, secluded tent spaces to chose from in the garden forest people camperChilling in the swimming hole in the creek just behind the house! It was so beautiful and refreshing, no better way to spend the afternoon!Hiking in the nearby Lassen Volcanic National Park. The access was an easy drive down the road from the site!

Stephen is such a lovely person. BEAUTIFUL garden, oak trees, private and shaded. Lots of level grass spots to set up tent. Mesmerizing, tranquil waters of private part of a stream. Peaceful. Excellent night’s sleep.

We had a great stay at Stephen's! His property is perfect for a quiet campsite and relaxing by the creek. We also loved listening to his music on the drive to Lassen the next day, thanks for sharing! Would highly recommend staying at Stephen's!

Stephen was a wonderful host! Very friendly guy with a very nice property! We had access to a tables and chairs, access to a beautiful creek behind the property, and it was at a great location, near beautiful waterfalls, forests, trails, and the city of Reading. He provides access to a bathroom with shower which exceeded our expectations. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a nice quiet place to camp in the Shasta area.

Loved the site! We were traveling from SoCal and needed a place to crash, Stephen’s place was easy and beautiful. Perfect place to stop on road trips. Stephen was a wonderful host - he even shared some of his music with us.
