Ron met us at the main house he was very welcoming, it was a very nice very quite camp spot, it had wood chips put down so mud wasn't a problem on site. Also very nice campfire rings that you could cook on if needed, the flush bathroom was a big surprise tile floors drywall very nicely done and clean, the dogs loved being able to explore the woods around camp and take a dip in the pond below the main house. We took a hike to mud creek into the canyon very nice walk a bit of a work out on the way back up, also we walked the train track and yes there is a train on site but i think its down for the winter months. all in all we had a great time thank you Ron!

This was such a lovely, chill spot with lots of amenities. Very grateful for the flush toilet! There was also a picnic table and chairs and water at our site. We only briefly interacted with the landowners, but they seem very cool. I appreciate them being good stewards of the land and working to restore the forest. The steam train was an added, unexpected bonus. If I ever come through that part of California, I’d definitely go stay at Kristin & Ron’s place.

Awesome camping! We had the furthest of the two sites. It was spaciouse, big enough for 2-3 tents. Fire ring and picnic table. They supplied us with a jug if water and the toilet was really nice. The property is beautiful and quiet at night. The stars were amazing! Kristin was an awesome host and very hospitable. We will be back

We had a very quiet evening with lots of privacy. The hosts were very welcoming and the property was beautiful. We walked half mile loop with our dog in the evening as well as the morning. The forest was lush and we saw some deer on the walk. Our dog loved the pond on the property.

The campsite was great! The property is enormous (500 acres)! It was like having an entire forest to ourselves. Ron was very accommodating and gave us everything we needed to get a nice campfire going, despite everything being wet from the rain a few days prior. The pond is great place to relax at and it is very calming.

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.
