Closer to Heaven was just OK. Campsites are spread out, but when booking we were placed right next to the only other group in the camp. The activities are all outside of the camp between 30-40mins drive away. 65$ a night for campsite with no access to sink, kitchen, or a shower is steep. Hopefully the small tough sheds on the property will come with some usable amenities soon.

This is a good spot to camp. The bathroom is nice. The camping sites are generally flat. The ones near the bathroom are relatively close together and might be loud if the place is crowded. Sites 7 and 8 are farther away from people.

Great spot. One of the cleanest camp toilets I’ve ever seen, each site has a lot of space, the area is beautiful. Lots to do nearby. Our group went wine tasting, Saluti down the road is exceptional.

We hope to be back soon!

It was good but not as good as other hip camps I have visited. There were lots of yellow jackets but no traps. The toilet too had lots of bugs and yellow jackets inside. Had a neighbor camper who had couple of dogs left unattended - the were barking all day long. Not a very pleasant experience but the place was alright.

We love this campsite! It is gorgeous and very well maintained. The altitude got us out of the heat of the Valley and into a gorgeous forest. It's quiet with a pine fragrance that makes you want to take a deep breath. The bees like it too. They were all around, especially when we were eating. But we will certainly be back soon.

Second time here! Really enjoyed my visit the first time so I had to come back again.. and it wasn’t even better because we had the whole site to ourselves. Super quiet and relaxing weekend.

I enjoyed this campsite and would go back here again. The campsites are spaced far apart and spacious. Great tree coverage in the area. The road coming into the campsite was gravel and well maintained. I appreciated the clean bathroom with a flushing toilet.

100/10 would stay here again!

We just came off of a wonderful weekend at Christina’s campground. Highly recommended, it was clean, quiet and spacious. They had welcome packets with your name on it, including a sticker, and trash bag and recommended local places to eat and drink and swim! Sooo thoughtful. We stayed in site 8 and loved the distance from the other campers. We felt like we ha the whole place to ourselves.

Things to note:

You’re in the forest, bugs exist. That being said, this property does have a lot of yellow jackets. They like food and water or sugary drinks so if you have both (which you will) they’ll be around. That being said, we had no issue with them, we left them alone and they didn’t sting any of us or our dogs. They will be around you or on your cup or by you when you’re cooking. We weren’t bothered by it, we were in their space, they weren’t in ours.

The flush toilet is amazing to have, they also has disinfectant spray to use to wipe down the seat after you’re done for sanitation purposes which I thought was really cool. On the outside of the bathroom there is a faucet and automatic dispensing soap to wash your hands and paper towels to dry. Was very nice!

Please remember that when there is a fire ban in effect you do not burn wood. We had no issue with that whatsoever, we used our propane table top grill as well as charcoal in the provided fire pit for cooking and smores.

They don’t have breed restrictions on dogs, which was absolutely amazing. We had a total of three dogs a lab, a Rottweiler, and a Chihuahua. Please make sure you clean after your pets.

And make sure you clean after yourself. You do pack out your own trash out so bring plenty of trash bags and you’ll be set.

They also have a frisbee golf course on the grounds as well as a horseshoe pit. Frisbees and horseshoes provided. They were both awesome to have as options for activities without leaving the grounds!

Response from Christina, the Host, on July 22nd, 2021

Thank you Amber, what an awesome review. Well thought out I must say. Yellowjackets are terrible this year for an unknown reason, many in our region have been reporting same. This is not typical but now I now they are in camp not just around our home. I appreciate your time in writing such a great review. Thanks for staying with us and Travel on Safe.

The campground was overall great. You can see the other sites, but they're not super close like other campgrounds.

The bathroom was clean and there was running water on the grounds. We did not see the hosts at any point during the trip.

No issues and the drive in wasn't too bad. You're on some backroads for about 5 minutes, but there's plenty of signs.

We had campground 10, which was in a decent location.

I would not recommend campsite 5, it's right next to the bathroom which has a lot of traffic.

There were a few bees, so I'd recommend bringing a food tent due to the bees that were there. They came out during our meals.
