Had a great time on a late October weekend. Amazing views of the foliage during the day and the stars at night. Our van with 9.5’ clearance rode up the hill to the site just fine (took it slow under some branches). Great location with nearby hiking and the town of Manchester. Mike was a great host and generously made us coffee. Would love to return!

Great camp site! The views were amazing. Plenty of dead wood to gather behind the field. We missed out on the pizza due to some crazy storms. Mike was a great host. He drove up wood to our camp site so we wouldn’t have to bring a wheel barrel up. Would definitely visit again. Make sure you bring stakes if there’s going to be a storm. It was pretty windy at the top/

We rolled in to this spot after dark, so waking up to the sunrise mountain view was amazing! Great star watching & it was easy to find & get to even after dark.

West Mtn Primitive is the perfect place to get away from it all. The site is huge, has a great outdoor shower with water straight off the mountain, picnic table, pit toilet with a view and super comfortable fire pit area. The view at night watching the fire and seeing the moon and stars over the hill side is stunning. Waking up the morning we had a cloud inversion in the valley as the sun came up. Mike is a great host, very knowledgeable and very helpful. Plenty of fire wood, water and lots of a lots of land to explore. Will be coming back next year and would highly recommend this place for the views and how well its managed. For reference I came by motorcycle and its a rideable road up to the campsite. Perfect spot for moto camping and exploring the area.
