Such a great location in the forest. I stayed in one of the safari tents and wish I had longer. This was a great option in the fall with cooler nighttime temperatures but I imagine it’s even better in summer with the swimming hole.

We so enjoyed our stay and plan to make another visit soon! Would definitely recommended to a friend. Reserved parking close to the site and easy water access was a plus! Thank you Dustin!

Our second stay at Parksland and we’ll definitely be back again (& again!) The tent was magical and the wood stove a great addition. Highly recommend FF3 & fall asleep to the sounds of the creek. And definitely don't miss the sauna at sundown for the ultimate unwind. Parksland is our favorite getaway and we are so grateful for Dustin sharing his slice of paradise with us!

Everyone was so nice and the campsites were gorgeous! We could hear the creek from our tent. We stayed in the Bell Tent for our anniversary and it was perfect. Tucked away and private, it was the best little weekend getaway. One thing to note- the driveway is well maintained but be careful if you are in a car that sits lower to the ground- slow and steady and you'll be fine

Hipcamper Renee

Definitely coming back!

We stayed here for 4 days and 3 nights during an October "cold snap" (i.e. low in the 50s). Everything about this trip was perfect. The bell tents were spaced as to afford some semblance of privacy, but there were enough comings and goings during the day throughout the area that there was also a nice sense of community, as well. Shower water was hot, and stress and mosquitos were practically non-existent.

AMAZING views!! Very nice campground with great hiking and relatively private tent areas. However, upon arrival/check in we didn’t receive any information about the grounds, where things were located, etc. Other than that everything was a top notch experience! ❤️
