We had an excellent stay at Room with a View! I really liked that it was a bit off the beaten path, and it felt like we had so much land to ourselves. Super cool to hear a wolf pack howling in unison in the early morning. Close to some nice hikes, would stay again.
Beautiful place.... timed it just perfectly with orange and red trees to boot! Couple of notes....
- quick little 100 yard hike in.... super easy to unload a car in a few trips
- the platform would be perfect for about a 6x6 tent..... but our 7-9 was too big, with that being said the other sites accommodated a bigger tent perfectly
- appreciated the firewood and put!
- directions were spot on
This location is beautiful- you're really tucked back in the woods and it feels secluded. There is a road with quick access to the coast/Temperance River SP in one direction and George Crosby Manitou SP in the other. However, since it is close to a road there was car noise at night (more than expected for how remote it feels). We had one single and one double backpacking tent and camped at site #2 as site #1 is quite uneven and small. Because you have to park down the road and hike in, we ate breakfast/dinner at the car so we wouldn't have to carry our food and gear back/forth and potentially risk leaving something that could attract bears. This worked well for us! But if you are planning to eat your meals backpacking style, there are plenty of trees suitable for a bear hang. Overall, happy with our stay!
We stayed at Ellis camp during a hiking trip at Temperance River. It was the perfect spot to return to and set up camp for a quick nights stay. Easy to find and the walk in was short enough that carrying our stuff in was a breeze. Beautiful views from the site, and although there aren’t many hiking trails immediately near the site, the availability of so many great state parks near by more than makes up for this. Definitely book this stay if you want a rural but accessible camp site!
Staying at Elli's place was great! The view and set up on the platform were really amazing. The trail was a bit overgrown, but nothing too terrible. Keep your eyes peeled for the signs as they're not right on the side of the road as I thought they would be, but they're not too difficult to spot. Dry firewood was available after it rained which was awesome. We heard some wolves howling in the distance at night. Overall a great spot and unique experience.
