We loved camping at Justin’s campground; we will definitely be back.
We went during the week so we were by ourselves, loved that!

It was great! It was just what i needed, a quiet place to camp and relax after a long backpacking trip. Justin was very responsive and helpful. The only problem is there were a lot of ants at this site, but maybe that was just a seasonal thing. Plus it’s camping so what can you do. This was a beautiful quiet ranch, i recommend!

BEAUTIFUL place to camp and the hosts were helpful and really welcoming. We only stayed one night because we were on the move but really wished we could have stayed longer!

The site was great! It's nestled beneath a boulder and it is very beautiful, I hiked in with my two dogs and it was perfect for the three of us.

One item to note, as it's not clear in the posting, is this is one of 5-6 other sites on the property. I was a little confused when I arrived at the same time as a few others, so I did a "check-out" hike in before bringing my stuff in. The sites are well spaced out and you feel as though you are on your own.

This place was everything I wanted it to be, quiet and peaceful. I was in the furthest camp, which was a tough hike but worth every step. I’ve read through most of the HipCamp reviews around the area and found a lot of negatives, but this place only had positives.

Would come back to any of the sites any time. Can’t wait to return with friends.
