Me and my girlfriend had no idea what to expect. The road up you’ll definitely need all wheel drive car that can handle deep dips and some rugged off road terrain. Other than that the pictures do not do this place justice. The combination of the hospitality from Shannon, Terra, and Todd, the spiritual surroundings of nature, the Milky Way galaxy and Mother Earth have captured me forever. Speechless. Already planning on the next trip back.

Talk about nights in the hills with you and the stars..this place is amazing.

Shannon has setup a nice little campsite with a platform for your tent or sleeping situation, picnic table, potable water, and a campfire ring(if it's not fire season).

It's a beautiful secluded little spot up the hill with a beautiful view and just serenity. It was the perfect little weekend away.

Great tucked away place to stay! We met Shannon in town so she could escort us to the site the first night and we were glad! The road is a little rough with dips and loose rocks and gravel, so 4WD is absolutely necessary.

The site itself was very nice. Tucked under a giant tree, shelters you from potential rain, but dosen't block your view of the stars and the hills. Up at the site, there is a fire pit, large picnic table, and platform to set up your tent on. A spigot with potable water is nearby which was extremely convenient!

There are wild animals that wander the property so if you wake up early you might get a chance to catch the wild pigs or deer grazing in the area. She had a dog, Max, that loved our little dog and Max followed us most of the time while we were at camp. He became our camping companion. It was also a great place to let our little dog roam and run around.

It was a great getaway from our busy everyday lives. Expect no cell service, millions of stars, and interesting landscapes that the Lost Coast and Mattole Valley has to offer.

Longest stretch of private beach nearby the propertyView from the firepit/picnic table Platform to set up tent on. Perfect for rainy/wet season Milky way view at night

Host Shannon was friendly and happy to share her knowledge of the area. Campsite exceeded expectations with marvelous views and solitude. AWD/4x4 is definitely needed to make it up the steep dirt roads. 10/10 would recommend.
