Great host, great place, and great value. I picked this place because it's close to the Mishawaka concert I attended. Worked just fine for one night. The host is great at communication right away. Thank you!

Jill has a nice, secluded little spot in Rist Canyon that I'm glad she shares. It's a single spot so no worrying about neighbors that might not share your ideas of what "being in the outdoors" means, generators, music... Etc.

We had a peaceful single night stay and would definitely return...

Jill was very friendly and we enjoyed camping on her property. I liked the close approximately to Ft Collins!

Nice place to prepare a meal. Enjoying the view of the meadow and listening to the birds.

It was great to meet Jill and camp on her land for a couple of nights. She is a very friendly and welcoming person. The campsite is also very comfortable with lots of fresh air in the summer.

What a wonderful little spot up Rist canyon. Jill was the perfect host, greeted us with a friendly smile soon arrival. So quiet and peaceful, lovely to fall asleep with so many stars in the sky to gaze at. 🌌The Mishawaka amphitheater is just a few minutes away, we had a great lunch there then headed up to our spot. We will definitely be back! Thank again😊

Jill's property is absolutely beautiful! It's a short drive to the reservoir without the crowds at the campgrounds. She was so great, I'm sure I'll be back!
