Yes, yes, yes! What a cool spot. It's much more private than I expected, which is super cool. The Sphinx Rock hugs the camping area perfectly. You feel like you're in wild west (even though the house is right around the corner!) but you can't see it at all. This was one of the most silent nights of sleep I've gotten, it's so peaceful here.

I was Hilary's first camper, and it is pretty rustic in terms of camping, which was perfect for me in that I didn't need much more than a private place to park. I could see it staying like this and being perfect for future campers, or adding a few more amenities like a picnic table could be cool. Either way, I LOVED staying here and could literally just stare at Mt. Shasta from this spot forever. Hilary is lucky to own such an incredible piece of land.

Stewart Mineral Springs is so so so close to here, just down the road. Book an appointment in advance and enjoy a mineral bath x sauna x cold plunge in the creek. Ask for suggestions if you're not familiar with the area, there's so much that's hidden below surface level.

Thank you for sharing this amazing land, Hilary! I hope to visit again!

The campsite is behind Sphinx rock. When you arrive, you drive past the house (or park there if tent camping) and the site is located right around the rock. It's feels so private - you can't even see the house - like you're own spot in the wild west. :) Mid-way point to the top of Sphinx Rock. Mount Shasta Sphinx Vortex CampJust another van pic :)
