Great location. If using Apple Maps, navigates straight to site. Couldn’t determine where the 2 different sites split or if we just ended up staying in 1 site. Some signage would be helpful. Spotty service. Responsive host. Ask for code to porta potty. Other campers and cabins near which added some comfort.
Nice and quiet but not picturesque
Nice and quiet. Fairly close to Yellowstone.
There's no posted address or numbers to mark the tent sites so it was a little confusing at first. Also when you arrive, there's a posted sign that says there is audio and video surveillance on the property and i don't like the idea of being recorded at a campsite. If all you're looking for is a flat spot to set a tent its great but the scenery includes a stack of materials and a log splitter. I didn't personally mind that aspect but the pictures on hipcamp don't show any of that.
It was a very nice stay. You can see houses from your spot but that didn’t bother us. The only thing that was a little confusing was where to park. We ended up using google maps and the directions are now correct on there. Very nice spot that was affordable to go to Yellowstone for the day. It was about 40 min away but a very nice drive.
Will be coming back.
I have mixed reviews about this host site was ok host didn’t respond to messages and there was no address posted so really wondered if we where at the right place. The map with choice of spot is not realistic. Spots where 100ft apart 2nd site was no where close to creek like pictured in map. We hiked to the stream pictured in the map was at least a mile away and had private property signs. The code to the bathroom was never given to us and there is no cell service to message the host from camp but we roughed it and it was very quiet and the stars where awesome. I would totally camp here and probably will concerning the cost and location. I’m sure it’s hard to put the sites on the map I just wish there was a better description and better communication from the host.
I stayed in site 1 for a few nights and it was as described. ATVs and cars/trucks up and down the street, which is very close to sites, pretty much all day. Visible neighbors on all sides. The couple across the street seem to be very kind people and I had a couple nice chats with them. Porta potty is clean. You won't be 'alone', but it felt private enough for me. The hosts seem like very sweet people and they were very welcoming to my dog. All in all I would stay here again if the need arises. (Drove a Nissan sentra in and it was fine)
