My son and I had a great time tent-camping at the Queen Elizabeth Mine. We were there for two nights. We hiked to the top of the ridge for a beautiful view and hiked the ridge top.
It’s a steep hike from the car to the site. I would recommend bringing a two person tent for the ease/lightness of carrying it. We ended up leaving the cooler in the car and made well planned trips to the car for food and misc. It’s not car camping.
The campsite is well set up with a propane stove that saved our weekend when our stove died. There’s a nice picnic table, camp chairs, a hammock and a big half-shell made out of steel and tarps that we set our tent up inside of. It’s a good second layer against the elements and came in handy a few times. John was a great host and he has set up a wonderful camping spot.
When the camping opportunity presents itself I may camp here again.

This campsite was awesome! Very private and great views. Our dog loved the chipmunks and squirrels. John was a great host! Very knowledgeable of the area and very hospitable. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to get away and have a private experience.
