This 40 acres sits on the Yuba River Ridgetop. At the Platform of Pleasure you will enjoy 100,000+ acre views of protected land looking North to the High Sierra, minutes away from downtown Nevada City and 8-10 miles from Yuba River Trailheads. 

This site can accommodate up to 4 tents of people in the same group. We welcome children 8 years and older to this magical site. Upgrading to the “Little House” is an additional $35 per night. You can decide on using it on arrival. (Payable Venmo or Cash.)  It has a comfortable queen size bed (bedding not provided). 

The little house includes a electric Generator for string lights and device charging, typically lasts 2+ days, but (generator recharges an additional $10). 

The reservation is for 2 guests. Additional guests are welcome $10 per person/ per night.

Firewood bundles are $10 per bundle (2+ hours of campfire when campfires 🔥 are allowed). On our property like anywhere in the woods there are mosquitos, so you should bring bug spray.

 When you turn off of Cement Hill Rd GPS can be confusing. Come down Bodie Ridge Rd approximately 1/8 of a mile, (STAY TO THE LEFT) and park on the left off the road between the orange cones. The trail to the Platform of Pleasure is directly on the other side of the road from where you park. 

If the Platform of Pleasure is booked, another option on this property is 

❤️The Love Shack❤️. Check it out on the HipCamp site.

We really enjoyed our stay here, the property and views are stunning! Chris was really helpful with sharing information and quick with communication. It felt private and secluded but close to town and river spots! I highly recommend this sweet spot in nature, we will be back for sure!

Chris was a great camp host. He even loaded up our camping stuff and drove his quad to the bunkhouse with all our stuff so we didn't have to. The views from the Platform of Pleasure are truly breathtaking and we enjoyed our dinner and wine in the evenings there watching the sunset. The bunkhouse is a must and worth the extra money to use and generator for your stay. It was a little too cold for us to tent camp this time of year, so the bunkhouse was a cozy option. It's also a very dog friendly place and my dog Kismet enjoyed relaxing on the platform.

It was an amazing 2N/3D stay! My girlfriend and I rented out the tiny house and it was well worth it. For the record, we’re newbie campers. It definitely added to the coziness and comfort. The platform itself provided the best views of the forest. Not to mention, the sunset looked amazing from the deck.

Overall, it was a really great stay. I would highly recommend this place. Chris, his wife, their barn kitty Bella, and cute dog Ruby definitely made the stay extra warm. Chris provides the best tips too! Be sure to ask him where to go and which directions to take (Google doesn’t compare to a true local)

What a lovely little spot to spend a few days. I absolutely loved relaxing on the deck and enjoying the beautiful view. Close to some great Yuba River swimming holes. Loved all the little personal touches and coziness of the little house. Nice clean little bathroom with shower. Can’t wait to go back.

Our stay was amazing! The platform of pleasure has everything you need for a luxury campingspot. Chairs, propane bbq, lights, shower,... we had bad luck with the smoke due to the wildfires but the view must be so good when you can see it 😅 Chris is a very friendly host who has lots of information about the area and what to do, where to hike and where to eat ☺️

Chris was an absolute pleasure to work with! He made himself available by call or text after booking for any questions we had. My family of 7 camped there for the week and we had the best time! The tiny home was awesome with the beautiful lights strung outside. The platform was magical with amazing views all day long, but of course the sunrise and sunsets were spectacular. My kids had an awesome time! His hammock is awesome, super comfy and definitely the coveted spot this past week for my kids. He provides so many things that help make your experience amazing. He assisted with taking our supplies to camp using his ATV and trailer as well as the Hipcamp wagon. He provides a covered table for cooking on, lighters, trash can and bags, another seated area that seats 8 people. He provides water jugs from his well for drinking and washing dishes with. His bathroom and shower aren’t too far away and available for use 24 hours/day. It was so peaceful there. My family all agreed they would come back!

Lounging. Chris provided many seating options. When fires are allowed, he has 2 pits available. During our stay fires were promoted due to excessive heat and fire danger. Beat sunrise and sunset spot! We enjoyed many beautiful family meals on the platform. Beat sunrise and sunset spot! We enjoyed many beautiful family meals on the platform. Lounging.
