Great spot. Very secluded and the covered wooden deck was a great place to gather out of the sun. Will definitely be back.

Mike was very hospitable. I met him at the local store and followed him up to the site. As soon as I step foot on this land I knew I would be back. The views are amazing! I got here when there was a wind advisory so I couldn't have a campfire, which is usually a deal breaker for me, but the stars were more than enough! I would definitely be back very soon!

I had my wedding here, the drive up might discourage you but it was beautiful and non disruptive since there is no other people or homes that are nearby. We had the whole place to ourselves and it was sweet and intimate like I had hoped for. Michael was more than accommodating and helped us get more chairs up the mountain as well! Look forward to seeing him again

Overall a great camping experience: the site, surroundings, and host were all wonderful. The only thing to watch out for is the wind.

The site itself has a ton of room to set up tents, sit around the fire pit, sit under the shade structure, and park cars. Our 4 people, 2 cars, and 2 tents barely made a dent! The shade structure is quite large, and provides plenty of shade throughout the day. The porta potty is a nice addition, although it did get some large ants at night (can't really complain about that too much; it is the outdoors after all). The drive there was easily accomplished in a FWD Honda Fit.

The surroundings are absolutely gorgeous. The site is very secluded and quiet, with nature in all directions to admire. The night sky looks great given the lack of light pollution.

The only downside here - as mentioned in other reviews - is the wind. It wasn't windy enough to risk bending a tent pole or anything, but it took some work to make sure nothing blew away while cooking and eating. On the plus side, it kept us feeling comfortable despite the 80 degree weather, and kept the tents very well ventilated.

Mike was a great host: very responsive to questions, gave us easy directions to get to the site, and gave us more than enough water for our trip.

Me and my group of six absolutely loved this site and all agreed we would be coming back. We made it to the site with no issues by following Mike's directions. The site is quite isolated, meaning you don't have to worry about bothering any neighbors. The views from the site are great, with no signs of anyone else around. There site is fairly flat with plenty of spots to pitch tents. As anyone who camps in the desert knows, the sun can be brutal, which makes the permanent shade structure on the site invaluable. We came out for the perseid meteor shower and had an amazing show. Definitely recommend this site and we will definitely be back in the future.

The place was perfect for a getaway with friends! Make sure you have plenty of shade, water, and food, but the space is wonderful, fun, and private. We had an amazing time here

Beautiful location with 360 mountain views! Pictures don’t do it justice. Loved how remote and secluded it felt and the fact that I was able to reach the spot in my Honda Civic (no 4WD necessary). Aside from the amazing location, Michael was an incredible host who was quick to respond to whatever we needed. Our car died on the second night and he was kind enough to come over and jump it for us asap! 10/10 recommend this spot to anyone looking for a wonderful getaway. We’ll definitely be bringing friends back in the future!
