I’ve had the pleasure to be the “caretaker” of this special land once inhabited by the Maidu Indians for the past 39 years. This has been the place of several concerts known as “Stars At The Ridge Top”. Artists who have played here include Jesse Colin Young, Tuck and Patti, Leo Kotke, Nils Lofgren, America, Ritchie Havens, Leon Russel and Dr John (RIP you lovely souls). This is SPECIAL ground here and I’m sure you will feel the MAGIC!!! 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.  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. We offer a tent platform, as well as a canvas tent listing.  Guests love staying here: "From the moment we arrived Chris was nothing but amazing. He helped us get settled in and even recommended some beautiful spots to hike/sight see. They are both so generous! The campsite beautiful and they did a very nice job supplying us with any materials we may need. Definitely coming back during the summer!"

What a beautiful view just WOW
What a beautiful view to wake up to. The place was really nice, has all that you pretty much need for a nice glamping experience. Chris and Rebecca where very nice and friendly they helped us out on all the questions and concerns we had. Location was very good close enough to nevada city but still out remotely. We hope to come back soon

My stay at the PlatForm of pleasure was outstanding. Chris and Rebecca were extremely communicative and understanding. They went above and beyond to make my stay as stress free as possible, which was great bc I was in the midst of a cross country move. The spot itself is incredible - gorgeous views and very close to the Yuba River and downtown Nevada City. The tiny cabin is amazing. Yes, it’s small, but one whole wall is a window that looks out to those amazing views. Also, my dog had so much fun staying here and running around outside in the woods. I will definitely stay here again!

Magical!
I cannot say enough how much we enjoyed the Platform of Pleasure. So many touches that made the stay better than we imagined. A peaceful location - we felt far away from everything. Thank you Chris and Rebecca for everything you've done to make this a very special place. It was everything we hoped and more. We will see you again! Take care!

The tent and bed were so fun, cozy, and comfortable. The deck was spacious and ideal for hanging out in comfort. Access to the shower and toilet was convenient and our hosts, including little Bella the cat, were so friendly. The forested site offered a starry night sky, playful deer, and plenty of space to roam. The shops and restaurants of Nevada City were only a few minutes away. I will definitely return!

I wasn't able to make this trip unfortunately. I had invited a couple of friends to go with me and Chris was gracious enough to allow them to go without me. They have raved about it since the moment they came back! They've asked me to book it again so that they can go with us 🙂

Very nice host, who built a really nice private site with an AMAZING view. The hammock there is so comfortable. I would upgrade to the little cottage so you have a bed, unless you really want to tent camp. The amenities are really nice. If you want glamping its great. If you want ruggedness, not so much. Also the Yuba river is so close by. Great area. The only thing that was someone a let down for me personally was there was not really any hiking trails around the property.

Great experience
I stayed in the little house by myself and my small dog. Felt very safe. Chris welcomed me when I arrived and gave me a tour. The tiny house is clean and the bed is cozy. No need for a/c or heater in October. The view from the platform is spectacular! The lights in the house and outside run on generator. The generator is fully charged and I barely used it. Location is close to freeway, Nevada city and yuba river. Will definitely return.

Amazing!
What to even say? This was probably the most spectacular hip camp I’ve ever stayed at! The views are incredible and expansive, you can sit all day in pure joy. The site is beautifully decorated, organized, and well kept. The platform is very nice to have and Chris included a BBQ with propane, recycling, and lots of tables, comfy recliner chairs, and benches. The property is very secluded with no car noises and only the sounds of animals and rustling trees. But is only 10 minutes from nevada city with lots of cute cafes and restaurants . 15-20 minutes to hiking and river pools. Chris is extremely attentive and friendly and gave lots of good directions and was overall a great guy and we had some good conversations Couple things to note- you cannot pull you car up to the site but there is a very nice big wagon you can load up. It’s like a 3 minute walk and relatively flat. I was able to fit all my cooking and camping gear in one go. Bathroom is like a 5 minute walk away but really nice and includes shower with hot water- I also didn’t mind this but just so you know Overall will definitely be coming back!

Absolutely amazing stay. Chris and Rebecca were so nice and welcoming and showed my wife and I around their beautiful property. I recommend to anyone to upgrade to the Love shack tent; it was an absolutely enchanting experience. The land and views are beautiful as well as quiet and relaxing. Nevada city is a great small town with lots of shops and restaurants to explore (only 10 minutes away). And of course North Lake Tahoe is about and hour and half away but is always worth the drive. Thank you to our wonderful hosts for opening their home up to us and we will most definitely be back!

The view was nice during the day, unfortunately the generator was down when we went. It was unbearably hot at night and the desk fan in the little house died. Due to the generator being down the porch lights couldn’t be turned on at night so it was very dark and a little eerie. We received a 50% refund from them on the Hipcamp charge to account for the refunded second night but paid full price for the small house up charge ($35). Something odd, they said “Muchas Gracias” to me after finding out my last name was Hispanic. It’s not like I started talking in Gaelic to them when I saw their Irish last names.

We loved our stay! Rebecca and Chris were super kind, helpful and accommodating. They lent us a phone charger and a speaker when we forgot ours and gave us directions to some great spots on the river. Beautiful property and we loved staying in the Boho tent!

Loved this spot! Very peaceful, quiet, beautiful location. The camping area was well equipped with an outdoor sink, table, potable water, and lighting. We ended up upgrading to the clamping tent - the bed was quite comfortable. Would have been happy with our own tent as well. Bathroom and shower not too far away. Chris, Rebecca, and Kyle were extremely warm and welcoming. The location was nearby our favorite swimming/hiking spots on the Yuba! and also close to Nevada City

Glamping in style
We loved glamping in the tent, on such a big site that had everything we needed. We highly recommend it. There was a cooking stove, sink, hammock, water, campfire pit, fans, and great outdoor lights. The decor was so cute and the bed was comfy. The access to the bathroom and shower was convenient. Great place to show up, relax, getaway!

A beautiful spot with great hosts
The spot is absolutely perfect. We used tents and there is a very flat and well maintained area to set up. The view is absolutely amazing and in particular the sunsets are not to be missed. You can really see the pride and care that Chris & Rebecca put into their property. Everything about it was thoughtful, clean and well maintained. They are also welcoming and kind hosts who gave us lots of good advice and were lovely to chat with. A+.

It was an amazing experience being in an area we are not really familiar with and kinda away from the city. The rivers around are amazing as well, the water was really clear and not crowded. The view from the site was stunning as well!! The hosts were really helpful as well and easy to communicate with. Will definitely come back again!
