This was one of my favourite Hipcamps! Upon arrival, William was warm and welcoming and offered us a tour of the ranch and animals, which was absolutely fascinating, William has so much love and knowledge for his animals, ( a lot of them are rescues ). We learnt a lot and were able to meet most of the burros, goats, horses and reindeer. After our tour, we loaded up one of the burros and headed up to our camp, which was a short walk up from the ranch.
at the end of the little hike, we were met with a beautiful campsite that had amazing views of Mount Evens and the surrounding valley. The wall tent is well kept and stocked with water, a cooler, a camp kitchen table and wood-burning stove. There was also a bathroom, and at the time we were there a shower that was in the process of getting installed.

As it was a little cooler we had the stove going and it kept us warm as we had dinner around the table and all through the night. In the morning, we went for a little hike to an old mine site which was beautiful and offered more views of the mountains and valley.

We had such a relaxing time at the camp, and the atmosphere is warm and welcoming if you are looking for a little getaway in the mountains. This is the spot!

Our stay was great, the people who run the land are so helpful and brought us more wood and propane for keep the fire going. You are greeted near the animals and then you are able to use the donkeys or a Polaris razor to bring your things up to the campsite. Just note it’s a hike and you might not want to do it by foot unless you packed very light
