Creekside camp is on the banks of a year round salmon, steelhead spawning stream called Tomki creek. It has a fire ring, picnick table, firewood is available, outhouse, but no other facilities. It is totally private, with only one other campsite within view (150' away); no visible structures. Perfect for someone who wants privacy and a place to unwind and enjoy pristine, unspoiled nature and solitude. There are wild blackberries growing on the banks of the creek under a tall canopy of riparian trees. Cool & inviting during hot summer days. Accessible for any vehicle, except for heavy winter rains.

Places to see near Lightworks ranch
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
We decided to stay with some close friends at Lightworks Ranch, renting both sites with our group of 6 adults, 3 young children, and a baby, so that we would not be exposed to any other campers while we were there. A few days before our planned arrival Stephen contacted out organizer, saying that there was an additional fee for each kid for each night. He said that we should stay in one site and he would cut us a deal. That brought our camping fees up to about $300 a night, making a three night trip $900! It seemed like maybe he got someone else that wanted to book the site and was trying to make more money off of us and them. When we looked back at his website it seems he had changed the costs for extra people, and added a third site. We did not feel comfortable staying with him after that- the whole situation felt really sketchy. So we canceled our trip and asked for a refund from hipcamp.
Wonderfully isolated camping experi
We had a wonderful stay at Creekside Camp 1. It was as private and isolated as advertised. The camp is in a beautiful meadow; the creek about 50 steps away. There are 2 campsites; the other was empty. I might consider reserving both to assure quiet and isolation. There were some areas of the creek with a few feet of water, clean and refreshing. The outhouse is brand new and pristine— even I was comfortable using it! We will return soon!
Stephen was very friendly and helpful. I requested a grill so we could cook over a fire and he was able to provide one on short notice. However, I stayed at "Nature Camp" not "Creekside Camp." Nature Camp is not nearly as private or scenic. It is right next to the main property and feels kind of like you are camping in somebody's backyard. I would recommend Creekside Camp but have mixed feelings about Nature Camp.
