Brian was very responsive to my questions before our scheduled trip. He also went out of his way to make sure the camp site was ready before our arrival because it had recently snowed. He is incredibly accommodating.

We had to cancel at the last minute, sadly, but we will certainly make a point to camp here in the future. I’ve hiked nearby numerous times and the surrounding landscape is beautiful!

We showed up last minute, our host Brian was very accommodating after a recent snowstorm, shoveled us out a spot, brought out a firepit for us to use and recommended a hike for the next morning. Beautiful location.

Brian’s place was phenomenal, there is access to wilderness and hiking right off the property. Brian lent us some of his personal gear for the day hiking and was more than accommodating to all of our needs. I highly recommend this space for any traveler, it was the perfect spot to park my van off the grid while still only being within a half hour out of town. Brian and his wife were both warm and welcoming seasoned travelers who were a joy to connect with over coffee. I will absolutely return to this camp site on my future endeavors.

Brian is an amazing host. Contacted me very quickly after same day booking letting me know he was getting the site ready. He let us stay in a small cabin he is building because it was still very cold, which was a really great surprise. He helped us with firewood kindling and fire starters. He also let us borrow some chairs, and gave us great advice for trails in the area. Thank you again!
