Our kiddos loved their stay! The hosts were very nice. They offered our kids the opportunity to help feed their goats and pet their horses which they had so much fun doing. We had the site to ourselves and kids practiced casting on the pond for hours.

Great spot with a little lake to chill at. We had the whole place pretty much to ourselves. Hosts were super friendly and respectful of our privacy.

We reserved camping site 1 the night before we arrived. Turned out to be the perfect spot for us, away from the pond and the sweet families and right next to the surprisingly adorable bathroom with sink. It was the perfect, relaxing stop in our weekend adventure. Said hello to the little pony, goats and gorgeous horses. The drive from 101 was part of the beauty too. There was a group with several families with small children that we could tell we’re loving life. They had freedom to explore without supervision. Awesome spot for sure!

We really enjoyed this spot, the weather was perfect, the kids really enjoyed seeing all the animals and riding around the pond in the paddle boat. The pond was beautiful with the large willow tree next to it and the tree was lit up at night which made it especially magical. The bathroom was very clean and had very cool lighting and decor. The western decor around the property was also very fun. We camped at site 2, there isn't much shade so we were glad we brought our pop-up shade tent. The host was very responsive and helpful.

This place is great! Very clean camp sites. Nice bathroom with real toilet and sink. Fire pit with fire wood. Metal grille for grilling. It was super easy and convenient. We were only there for one night, but I recommend this place.

A great getaway from the city. We were the only campers when we went and felt like we had the place to ourselves. Nolan welcomed us and was very responsive. My son enjoyed saying hi to the friendly goats in the property and also had a great time on the pedal boat in the lake. We're picky campers and always check if campsites have a flush toilet and if you are like us--yes, this campsite has a great little room with a sink and a flush toilet. It's a bit close to the road and you can hear cars pass by but the area is rural so not many cars drive around. There were barely any cars at night too.

Loved this tree by the pond.Camp Tule Elk CampsitesThe goats were very friendly.

We just returned from a visit and I cannot recommend this place enough! This is such a great place, especially if you have children. Our family booked Camp 1 which was located conveniently next to the adorable (and much appreciated) outhouse but there was ZERO “outhouse odor” at the site and was such clean facilities. We were provided with access to potable water, a small camp grill, a fire pit and a table. There were beautiful trees all throughout the property and the site was clean and well managed.

The pond is cute and the Willow is straight from a fairytale. My kids enjoyed the paddle boats and lookout tower; but without a doubt the ANIMALS were our most favorite part. We spent so much time with the goats! Nolan was a great host!!!

One of the many friendly goats. Outhouse interior..clean and well managed The outhouse We chose to tent next to the goats rather than by the pond.
