Site1 - SW 1 Seasonal Creek Side Camp accommodates tents and ground camping ONLY, will require a small walk from parking to the heart of the acreage, we will have a decent sized wagon to assist in transporting your belongings. There is a designated parking then a few minute walk to camp.

Site2 - N1 Flat Meadow Road Accessible is intended for those who would prefer a much shorter walk and the ease of access, this site accommodates tent camping, ground camping, car/trucks, smaller pop-up trailers (site requires leveling, on a slope, there is level ground available, but vehicle must not be over 10.5feet wide to fit through gate, under 16feet tall for decent tree branch clearance), and small baby campers. This site is closer to the road and near our utility shed.

Our quiet and hidden little meadow is a nature escape surrounded by saplings, towering oak and pine trees, natural seasonal streams, creekside, and an abundance of wildlife. 

The path to the heart of the acreage is a small walk from the designated parking across our bridges over the natural streams and creeks to your campsite.

Find yourself immersed in nature and experience visits from our wildlife; rabbits, quail, deer, turkeys, various species of birds, and others. And Enjoy a fire, nature, and during the night look amongst the star painted skies.

This was our first hipcamp experience. The site was beautiful & the hosts were amazing. They set up a shade structure for us, a hammock, and a table. We also enjoyed their solar string lights during our evenings. We camped here for my birthday & one of my favorite presents was a visit from Penny, the sweetest pooch Ever! I would love to camp here again.

This place was such a lovely surprise. We arrived late and found solar lanterns lining the stairs down to the grassy enclave, where a large sun shade structure was set up. There was also a tree outfitted with solar powered lights that made it look magical. We fell asleep under a starry sky and woke up to a private garage bathroom (not traditional, but nicely set up). Caressa showed our 3 year old son how to feed chickens, and we told him the story of the 3 bears, which was a great coincidence with the three wood-carved bears on the property amongst the scenery of trees and boulders. July was hot but we took day trips to Corlieu Falls to cool off and dunked some towels in our melted cooler water. By day 3 our son- who started out complaining- didn't want to go home.
