Beautiful site, very private, very clean, very quiet.
You can see many stars at night. I saw one shooting star and my friend saw three.

For this site, you do need to hike about a 100 yard from your parking spot to your campsite, so if you want to camp in your trailer, this probably not the best spot for you.

Bob was very helpful. He sent me videos of the site prior my arrival at the site, and he also texted me at night to make sure of us were able to find the site OK.

I would would highly recommend this site to family and friends.

The Overlook Lodge site definitely exceeded expectations! It was super private - we could only see the top of one camper from the site. The views in all directions were stunning. I was a little worried about the walk from the parking to the site, but it really wasn’t far, and there were solar lights marking the path. Bob was also quick to respond to my questions before the trip, and he even sent some videos to make sure we would find the parking and the site without issues. I highly recommend Overlook Lodge!

Great place to camp out. Friendly service and directions to get there were great! Campers out there were super friendly as well. Well recommended and will definitely try this site again.
