Stayed two nights with my dog, and overall had a good time. The picnic table and propane fireplace worked out really well, and the view in the morning is nice. Also very close to the state park, with a ton of forested and cool trails.
Some stuff we didn’t like:
1) we didn’t mind occasional yellow jackets, but there were a lot of flies during the day time. They are really persistent and bothered my dog a lot. But they completely disappeared when the sun went down and temperature dropped.
2) the site is covered with very fine dust that will stick to everything. Seriously, it was like being at burning man again!
Amazingly beautiful. Easy to get to and find, and the hosts were very responsive to our questions and needs. Our equipment rental went great (propane fire pit), we had solitude and an amazing view. Really appreciated the bathroom facilities. We had an awesome time and definitely will be coming back.
I would visit Bayside Retreat, again, because (1) it offers quiet and solitude, if you need it, and (2) Nick was quite responsive and helpful with the directions, when I had an issue with the Google Map directions.
The view was absolutely stunning! It is a long, windy drive up (especially in the dark), but it was completely worth it. We had such a private, peaceful, lovely stay and only wish we had planned to stay one more night!
Awesome view and host
Once again another good time camping at this spot.. amazing sunrise and sunset view.. Noah and Sarah is an awesome host. They have a side menu that accommodate your needs when you out there camping and no need to drive to get stuff.
