CampWay Presents:

Cabins C1, and D4 can only sleep 6. 

Cabins D1, D2, D3 can only sleep 8. 

All the rest of the cabins can sleep 10!

Your spacious, RUSTIC and private cabin is fully equipped for comfort and relaxation. Amenities include your own private hot shower, private flushing toilet, and numerous beds to lay your head at rest. This is not shared housing. You will have your own cabin for your party. The heater keeps it nice and toasty on those cold winter nights. When the weather warms up, opening up a window for a cool breeze is always soothing. 

Make your stay yours. Bring your own sleeping bag, blankets, pillows to make your stay with us as relaxing as possible. Each bed is outfitted with a mattress. None of the cabins come with linens, towels, or pillows. You must bring your own. 

Numerous hiking trails include Toby's Hole, Lake Trail, Goldwater Lake Trail, and the infamous boulder pile.

Our private lake is closed to the public and is only available to our guests. With catfish, and bass you are sure to catch a fish or two. Catch and release only please, no swimming, no watercraft. When you're not fishing you can enjoy wildlife that surrounds the lake, be it deer, squirrels, or the many different birds that frequent it. 

We have a designated outside fireplace where you can enjoy a warm cup of hot cocoa, or gaze at the night sky while breathing in the fresh cool air from pines that surround us. 

We recommend bringing a hammock as there are endless spots available to lay and relax in the calm forest.

It was ok. Only spent a night there, so didn’t get to enjoy all the things this place has to offer. Like that is was surrounded by trees and close to city.

Had a great time staying at the campgrounds. Felt very safe and the cabins were clean and functional. A lot of fun to walk the campground area and nearby trails. Staff was helpful and quick to answer inquiries.

It was very beautiful and the hosts were very accommodating! There was lots to explore and wildlife came super closer to us. The cabin was clean and it was pretty easy to have some privacy. Only thing is I wish we would have been notified a film crew was going to be filming a commercial and setting up right outside our cabin starting in the morning. Made it a little tough to have a fire in the morning but we ended up leaving a little earlier. Overall, still would rate it a 10/10! Thank you so much :)

Just like its description stated, a rustic cabin in the forest. We were greeted by Chris and Jonathan who were very friendly and pleasant to talk with.

They were quick to bring over the fire ring we requested and even provided a space heater when we mentioned the heater in the cabin wasn’t enough for us the first night. Coming from the Phoenix area we were out of practice with nighttime lows in the low 40’s/high 30’s.

Everything was great and the location is really close to numerous trailheads, as well as Prescott. We definitely recommend and will certainly be back!

I have to admit to not paying enough attention while booking, so didn't grasp that the cabin was for a large group (i.e. has several bunk beds in one large room) and not just a small cabin for 2 people - my fault entirely. That aside, the camp has lots of facilities, is in beautiful countryside, and I had the chance to go fishing in the lake which was a bonus. Jonathan the host was great with sending detailed instructions and a map, which made finding the cabin easy. Would definitely recommend for a group.

Staying here was awesome! If you’ve never been camping and want to introduce someone, this is a great way to start! It was very nostalgic for me having lived at and gone to summer camp growing up. We went on a great hike and enjoyed exploring around camp. It was a great time!

Great private quiet camp. We heard the coyotes yipping at dawn and the biggest herd of deer passed right by our cabin. An eagle flew over us during our morning hike. Would definitely come back just for the wildlife. The host and staff were all friendly. Recommend the hike tour with jake. He knows his plants and geography very well.
