Matt has self-certified that Hipcamp’s COVID-19 Safety Standards have been implemented at this listing. See what’s being done here.

Heavily forested mountain property is waaay off the grid; pack it in and pack it out. Property neighbors National Forest, so enjoy hiking, climbing, hamacking, watching wild animals, star gazing at night (breath-taking), but no sounds of the city.
