We really enjoyed our stay at Michael’s property. It was so well maintained, it really shows how well he wants to make sure your stay is awesome. Michael helped us pick the best site for our trailer, and offered to help me set up! Thank you Michael for having us!

Such a hidden gem! My boyfriend and I couldn’t find anywhere to go camping last minute and this place had last minute openings and the owner Michael was attentive and super nice! Highly recommend checking this place out

Beautiful land, friendly and attentive host. Campground is situated around an old grove of oaks which Michael, the host, has cleared level dirt pads for campers or tents. Each site has plenty of room to spread out. I have a tall camper (10’) that made it through the grove fine. Host set up a fire pit with some wood and old wood logs for seating. He also supplied a spool-style table...perfect for coffee in the morning.

At night it is very dark, Michael had strategically placed solar lights around the camp site to light your way. As I was stargazing, I went ahead and turned them off for the best dark effect. I could see the Milky Way!

At night there are bats and owls and in the morning I woke up to cute little quails wandering the property.

Things to note: there are no bathrooms so be self-contained! Also you are close to the road so you will hear some traffic but it was mild. Overall very lovely - I will be going back soon!!

Definitely check out Wisteria Candy Cottage 4 miles away!Local sageOwls at night!!Windmills in the distance

Beautiful space with wonderful oaks and soft level dirt for pitching a tent under. Great views of the Milky Way at night.
Michael is a great host and very responsive and attentive to needs.
Bring toilet paper and a shovel for using the bathroom, your own water, etc.
Also check out Cleveland National Forest (if it’s not closed these days) and the state park around it for good hiking, including the PCT.
