This "campsite" is nothing more than cleared space off the side of a driveway that is MAYBE 1/4 long in total length from the road to the dudes house. We endeed up only staying one of the two night's we paid for because the morning we were there the guy was standing at the top of the driveway starring at us at one point and on the back porch again a bit later while we got our breakfast together and day going. The host had zero information when asked about local things to do/see- the profile shows natural hot springs but when i asked about it all he did was send me the info on established hot spring businesses. The views from the land is pretty, but not worth staying in an uncomfortable setting.
