Our group really enjoyed staying here! 🏕 The view was spectacular and it felt like we had the campsite all to ourselves (even though someone else was staying in the Hobbit House). Such a change from regular camping! Campsite is adjacent to Hollenbeck Cyn with miles of trails (hike/bike/ride). Very responsive host, answered all of our questions and was very helpful. We loved our visit with their horses ❤️

We were two families and it worked great for us. Nice views and good privacy (the hut was not rented, i think it would have felt less private had someone else been staying there). Christopher was very helpful and responsive. We would return to check out the surrounding trails more in a cooler season.

Glad you enjoyed your stay at Hooper hollow! For future reference, the hut, AKA the “hobbit house” is now available on Airbnb! Camp one would only be available to one party only, we would not double book both the hip camp and tiny house, but do have options to include both for larger parties. Hope to see you again soon!

Super nice host. Very responsive, great setup for the layout. You’re not too close to any other sites. Extremely exposed in a hot area so go outside the summer and bring shade!

Loved it!! We got to stay here on a short notice. We booked it that same day. Christopher and Julia (?) met us at the gate and were super friendly and helpful in getting our bags to our camp site. Site 2 is awesome. It’s a little more isolated but outhouse is about a minute walk which isn’t bad at all. The view though is so nice! And there’s some trails for hiking and a dried out waterfall at the moment . Next stay we want to try the hobbit house ! Looked super cute ✨

Site 4 was perfect for us and our horses! Christopher and Julia are so hospitable and great stewards of the land. The property is well maintained. The trails are scenic, the weather was great. The night sky was epic! Great vibes and views! We would definitely recommend and definitely go back.
