The only thing I would caution is the road. Front wheel with all terrain tires minimum but I would recommend all wheel or 4 wheel. Very peaceful. Great swing with gorgeous views. Great access to hiking trail.

Beautiful but strange experience

The land was beautiful. The guys onsite who helped us get settled were pleasant. But this was neither hip, nor was it camping. The site is advertised as “a safe place to park” and there‘sa cute old school van in the photo. What the photo doesn’t show is the random lumber piled next to a giant trailer fill with trash just on the other side of that van. The space, the people living there, and the buildings (trailers) were unkempt, yet there were very few crops. It was billed as a working ranch, but it was confusing as to what type of work was happening. We stayed the whole weekend because it was July 4th and we needed somewhere to escape the noise of fireworks, but the other folks who rented a site next to us - the pretty one overlooking the lake - bounced after one night. That was after the guys drove their super low-to-the-ground 2WD Jetta over some of the roughest mountain roads I’ve seen. DO NOT BOOK unless you have 4WD - that wasn’t mentioned anywhere in the listing. Not the experience I would have wanted for $150. Did not feel like we were on vacation.
