Lovely place to camp
This was my second stay at Nite Heron Camp. I arrived in time to watch helicopters dipping into the nearby reservoir to extinguish a small brush fire. Wendy kept me appraised of the situation and it was indeed resolved by dusk.
The site itself is full of night sounds and offered enough privacy from other sites. I can now say I’ve heard a bullfrog purr! As my dog and I took our last walk about of the evening, we met the llama and his flock of sheep. I’m already looking forward to my next stay.
