Everything about our experience and stay here was nothing short of five stars.
Shortly after booking, Steve provided additional information about directions to the spot, as google maps has trouble taking you to the exact spot. We found it without any issues.
The gravel road in wasn’t too bad, but you will definitely want or need some decent ground clearance and AWD/4WD as there are some steep sections.

The campsite speaks for itself. Watching the sunset over the Mountain View was unlike anything I have experienced before. We were a little concerned about bears, but didn’t see any (thankfully 😂).

This will definitely be a return spot for us! The peace and serenity are unmatched. You will not be disappointed!!

We had a great time spending the weekend on the platform. The area is beautiful, very private and well maintained. The privy was an awesome bonus! We would highly recommend this site to our friends and family :)

What an amazing site! We thoroughly enjoyed our time here. The views are amazing, and the site is very private- our kind of camping. There are plenty of trees on site for throwing up hammocks. We also loved exploring the mountainous road that the site is situated off of.

This is our new favorite site and we will be back, especially since it’s only two hours from our home- bonus!

Thank you Steve for such great accommodations!

This is a great spot and I would highly recommend it to anyone. It is the perfect combination of getting away into the middle of the woods and having some of the the amenities of a campground. The camping platforms are great for setting up your tent on one and setting up chairs and a table on the other with an amazing view of the mountains. I was a little nervous about setting up our tent on the deck but it was easy and there are a ton screws under the deck to use as tie off points. Just make sure you tent is less than 8’ in at least one direction so you are not hanging off. The privy was clean and a great feature to have while camping with 3 kids. It was close to the tent platform but far enough that you didn’t see it. Walking to it was not a problem after dark and there are little reflectors on the trees marking the path to and from.

The ride up the gravel road is a little rough and was longer than I expected so we were wondering a couple of time if we passed it but we had not. When we got to it it was easily recognizable and we knew we were there. The road while a little rough and narrow in spots is no problem to get up, but I would definitely not do it in a car, truck or SUV is the way to go.

We will definitely be back to this location.

Absolutely incredible views! Steve was super helpful with directions and things to do in the area! We had three dogs who had an amazing time running around and hiking in the area! Cannot recommend this place more!
