    Host Ben was quick to respond, very attentive and helpful with any questions we had.. Conveniently located to town and lake nighthorse but it was closed due to the covid-19. Very quiet and safe spot. We Camped here with a 20ft trailer, but It was a little tricky to back in. Would recommend For smaller campers sprinter vans and tents.

    Very rustic and you need 4 wheel drive, but its amazing The stars at night and the mountain views are beyond description. You will not see any civilization and the peace and quiet are therapeutic. Next time ill stay 2 nights and explore.

    Wow. What a spot. Totally secluded, beautiful, relaxing. Host was great. I came on a Dual sport motorcycle and got in easily. If you’ve got a street bike the last 1/4 will be tough but not totally impossible. I highly highly recommend.

    Really great site! I was traveling alone and felt very safe camping here. Also, made it to the site in my Prius in spite of bumpy road conditions. Would definitely recommend.

    We loved this site. The view from the picnic table area was gorgeous. We have a Toyota Prius and were fine driving the road, but there’s quite a dip in the road that we weren’t able to cross just before the picnic table which was fine because we just stopped a few yards shy of the table. Remember, this is a primitive site with no water, no toilet, etc, but A BEAUTIFUL view of the mountains, quiet, and dark sky full of stars. We added a dozen farm fresh eggs to our stay and they were delicious. We really enjoyed this space. The wooden sign that is at the road you take into the camp site is hard to see, so look carefully. I would not attempt to drive in at night unless you have a 4 wheel drive. A beautiful spot and wonderful hosts!

    Excellent spot and Ben was a great host. Just be sure you have 4 wheel drive because the two track is a little rough.
