This 40 acres sits on the Yuba River Ridgetop. At the Platform of Pleasure you will enjoy 100,000+ acre views of protected land looking North to the High Sierra, minutes away from downtown Nevada City and 8-10 miles from Yuba River Trailheads. 

This site can accommodate up to 4 tents of people in the same group. We welcome children 8 years and older to this magical site. Upgrading to the “Little House” is an additional $35 per night and you can decide on using it on arrival. (Payable Venmo or Cash.)  It has a comfortable queen size bed (bedding not provided).  The little house includes a electric Generator for string lights and device charging, and typically lasts 2+ days, (generator recharges is an additional $10).  If you prefer camping the generator (which is silent, gasoline free and safe) can be rented for an additional $15 for two nights.

The reservation is for 2 guests. Additional guests are welcome $10 per person/ per night.

Firewood bundles are $10 per bundle (2+ hours of campfire when campfires 🔥 are allowed). 

On our property like anywhere in the woods there are mosquitos, so you should bring bug spray.

For our many returning guests who book 3 nights or more, we would like to offer the "Little House" upgrade for one of the nights at no charge, as our appreciation for your return visits. (This is for returning guests only.) 

When you turn off of Cement Hill Rd GPS can be confusing. Come down Bodie Ridge Rd approximately 1/8 of a mile, (STAY TO THE LEFT) and park on the left off the road between the orange cones. The trail to the Platform of Pleasure is directly on the other side of the road from where you park. 

If the Platform of Pleasure is booked, another option on this property is

The spot is absolutely perfect. We used tents and there is a very flat and well maintained area to set up. The view is absolutely amazing and in particular the sunsets are not to be missed. You can really see the pride and care that Chris & Rebecca put into their property. Everything about it was thoughtful, clean and well maintained. They are also welcoming and kind hosts who gave us lots of good advice and were lovely to chat with. A+.

It was an amazing experience being in an area we are not really familiar with and kinda away from the city. The rivers around are amazing as well, the water was really clear and not crowded. The view from the site was stunning as well!!

The hosts were really helpful as well and easy to communicate with.

Will definitely come back again!

What incredible sunsets! Perfect place to chill and unwind. My dog and I had an awesome time hanging out at the south fork of the Yuba river.

Chris and and Rebecca are wonderful hosts! As others have shared in their reviews, the photos really do not do this place justice. The upgrade to the little house is worth it. Seeing the lights lit up at night made the space feel magical. We hope to go again one day.

The place is quiet, private and with a spectacular mountain view! We loved just staying there eating, chilling and enjoying the place. Chris and Rebecca are nice and they let us borrow a pan coz I forgot to bring one.

What an amazing place! This was our best HipCamp experience EVER. Everything, from the beautiful setting to the hospitality to the thoughtful details at the site, was perfect. Chris and Rebecca were great communicators before we arrived and took ample time to orient us and make sure we were settled in. The views from the platform are breathtaking, the little house was so comfortable. The string lights, grill, lounge chairs, and every other amenity made the stay easy, comfortable and so enjoyable. We couldn't have asked for anything more, we'll definitely be back, thank you!

Beautiful private platform to stay at! Chris and Rebecca kindly showed us around upon arrival and left us to do our own thing the whole duration of the stay. There were tables, lounge chairs and an electric grill onsite and the bathroom was not too far from the platform either. The view was stunning. Overall it was a lovely stay!
