This was our second time at Madrone, once in winter and now once during summer. Gordon is the best! He was able to squeeze us in last minute on a holiday weekend. We were so fortunate to stay there because we had plenty of shade in the early morning and early evenings. He has little trails around the property so we would do a loop with our dog before we started dinner. Highly recommend, 10/10! Thanks Gordon!

Extremely accommodating host. Would strongly recommend a stay here. Fantastic campgrounds with friendly people and lots of things to do with a short drive.

Do yourself a favor and go camp at Madrone Tree Hill. The area is beautiful. Gordon is an excellent host who was extremely accessible for whatever we needed. We had 20 people at our site and had ample room. During our stay we went to the Happy River Swimming Hole (GORGEOUS) which we basically had to ourselves. Beware though, there's no obvious parking or easy way to the watering hole. Read Yelp before you go and look at pictures. We also made the quick hike out to Jack Russel Brewing a mile away which is a gem of a place.

Summary points : Beautiful Campground, Amazing Host, Lots of Activities and stuff to do, literally planning a trip back as a type this message
