Low-key and peaceful
John J.'s Land was my first experience with HipCamp. With a lot of public lands closed due to Covid-19, this spot was a perfect last minute escape for an otherwise busy July 4th weekend. John met us upon arrival and gave us a tour of his newly finished grounds. It was a cool experience to stay during the beginning of John's setup. Our area was clean of trash and debris, level, and picnic area shaded. We had a peaceful couple nights stay -- nothing but the sounds of trains in the distance. Overall a good primitive camping experience!
Made me look like a champ dad.
What a wonderful 2 nights. I wanted to take my kids camping before school starts but with "first come first serve" and a car load of kids, I wasn't willing to risk it. John's place was beautiful, secure, and charming. John himself was so attentive and wanted to make us feel at home. His concern for the kids was very kind. He even brought us a horseshoe game so the kids wouldn't get bored. (which I assured him, I was actually counting on and hoping for) Boredom is just not knowing what you want to do next, but-they loved the horseshoes, and the stars and the gas fire pit (i highly recommend getting). We all are looking forward to going back. The sites themselves were well planned out and spaced for privacy and convenience. John has put a lot of thought and effort into making it as nice as possible. I can't see you not enjoying the quiet and serenity of the spot. cheers.
This sites were excellent and spread out. Very cool property and convenient setup. Very easy. We were on a road trip and needed to stop for one night. John was very nice and welcomed us, and wore a mask the whole time. It was hazy because of the fires but in the evening the sky cleared and the stargazing was outstanding. We could see the Milky Way and slept very comfortably with zero noise. Would stop here again!
John was a gracious host. He welcomed us as we arrived and showed us around the property (with a mask on!). We happened to be the only ones there, so we had the whole site to ourselves. Each site has a picnic bench, there's some running water and a porto potty. Everything is new but it's also very evident John puts in work to upkeep and maintain. He has obviously thought of even the smallest detail--like he has trash bags and a cart available!
John is a great host and was very welcoming upon my arrival. This was my first time solo camping (with my dog) and I had a wonderful time. He showed me the different sites, explaining which ones are a bit more private, ones you can park your car at, and the sites least impacted by the wind! I opted for site 7, a bit up on the hill, but John provides a cart to help transport gear. The campground and the bathroom are kept very clean.
There is a short little nature trail to see some of the vegetation. I also saw a family of deer which was super cool. I arrived on the 21st, the night sky was clear and I loved seeing the Jupiter Saturn conjunction.
Overall, the campsite was quiet, peaceful, and a great way to disconnect from all of the virtual work. For my first time solo camping, I wouldn’t want to do it anywhere else.
A wonderful time
Beautiful camping area nestled in the trees and lots of mountain views. There were all the basic necessities and John tells me he is going to be adding hot outdoor showers, wi-fi, and more facilities. I will be visiting later to see the improvements.
