My teenager and I enjoyed our stay. It was primitive, which is what we wanted. Scott led us back to our site and was very accomodating. We fished in the pond, had a nice campfire and listened to the elk bugle. We never saw or heard the other campers (also what we wanted). It was lovely.
Amazing rejuvenating weekend
The stay here was amazing. It's very peaceful with the joy of listening to the else bugle. Cute little chipmunks running around. Scott is an amazing host that is very attentive to your needs and helpful with everything. The outhouse is a great feature to have and is nice. This will definitely be our family spot from here on out! The pound is beautiful with lily pads and lots of shade. The lake is gorgeous and fun to explore. You will not regret this camping area!!!
My boyfriend and I came to camp in this area to pick grapes, check out wineries, and hike. Scott was so responsive and helpful. The property is beautiful! We saw so many species of plants, birds, and amphibians along with the impressive elk. It was so neat to hear their calls and we’ll definitely be back because the hospitality and location are perfect.
Work's been nuts. School's been nuts. So my family and I were looking for a quiet place to unplug and camp. Scott's place delivered! We enjoyed the solitude, fishing in the pond, playing cards and reading by the firepit. We really appreciated the alternative to busy campgrounds and felt super rested by the time the weekend was over. Scott was also such a gracious host. He met us upon arrival and gave us a quick tour of the grounds to get our bearings. The kids have already asked if we can return sometime :) Highly recommend!
