Forest Camping was exactly as advertised, and what we were looking for. The campsite was perfectly secluded but just close enough to the flush toilet. We really appreciated having the propane fire pit. We enjoyed walking around the property with our dog off leash. Ron and Kristin are terrific hosts.

Only one night is enough to fall in love with this place and with this people! We came on a very Smokey day but didn’t stop us to enjoy the beauty and peace of the property. Ron was extremely kind and friendly, when we were about to leave his cousin-in-law showed us his uncle’s train and told a bit of the fascinating history of the place. We couldn’t be more happy!! Can’t wait to come back on a non Smokey day Ron!! Thank you so much for the hospitality!

Secluded spot, thoughtful and attentive hosts, a shockingly clean toilet, and TURTLES! Okay, there were also a lot of wasps (which they warned us about) and I was really glad we brought a screen tent for over the picnic table. There’s plenty of shade around the campsite.

The dirt is the softest, finest variety (you and your stuff will be totally covered). The pond is fabulously mucky around the edges for your toes with tons of fish. Both of these were positives for us, but maybe not for others.

What a great campsite! We had super clean, flushable bathrooms, a really cool outdoor shower. The cooking spaces were great, and the site itself was awesome. Although the Dixie fire brought in a good amount of smoke, it settled at night, and we were close enough to Chico breweries to escape the smoke during the day. (I highly recommend Secret Trail Brewing!) Overall 10//10 for the host and site itself, we had a wonderful time and a great experience!

We had a great stay! The campsite was extremely clean, quiet and private. We really enjoyed hanging out by the pond in the evening watching the turtles. Ron notified us in advance of the yellow jackets, which were extremely aggressive over any food, not just meat. I highly recommend a mesh tent in yellow jacket season! Overall, a great stay!

The campsite is super spacious and private!  Plenty of shade for tents too!

This was a lovely property to stay on. The pond was fun to swim in, the outdoor shower was lovely, bathrooms were really clean, and the camping spots were nice and private. Only thing was the mosquitoes, which as there was a burn ban we couldnt make a fire to chase them away. I would definitely bring mosquito coils with you if you are coming in the summer, otherwise it was great.
