This property is beautiful and a perfect place to pitch a tent and enjoy the nature. We came in at night, it was pitch black but with the help of the host we found our way to a beautiful, secluded campsite. Our dogs loved it as did we!!

We stayed at this campground on a visit to the dunes and we couldn’t have been happier with our site. Navigating through the roads to the sites seems daunting at first but if you take it slowly it’s not a problem. We had amazing views of the valley below and the mountains on the horizon. Our tent site a bit rocky but were able to quickly get set up (I suggest a cot or blow up bed as the ground is naturally filled with rocks).

Although the composting toilets were out of commission on our visit the state park is a 5 minute ride and has what you need.

Best of all were the stars! We have been to a few dark sky spots and somehow the stargazing was far better here. The Milky Way was visible within an hour of last light and as the night went on more and more stars filled the sky.

I highly recommend this camp if you are in the area!

R.H. was quick to confirm the details and everything was efficient. Campsite itself was private and had a great view. Fire pit in place, campsite was clean and it was easy to get to town. Doesn’t get any better than that!

Hipcamper Sally

Would definitely stay again.

Great little dispersed camping spot on private property. Host was super chill, helpful and very responsive. Far enough from other campers which was nice. Signage and parking a little hard to make out but no big. Great view, 2 minutes from a lake and near some national parks. Would recommend 4x4 or high clearance vehicles (truck, crossovers, jeeps etc.) but my '17 Honda civic got through ok. Fire wood for purchase. Amazing view from the "old can" spot

AMAZING!! Pictures do not do it justice my crew drove from southwest Missouri to camp here and man the views were gorgeous! The host was so kind and helpful! I love how secluded it is and even though our neighbor was close we could not hear or see them! 10/10 would recommend to everyone! Even my dogs had the best time of their lives are have been sleeping the last 11 hours we’ve been driving!

That’s camp sites are very nice and off the grid and remote. The privacy is wonderful and the stars are amazing on a clear night. The site I stayed in was Trinity and it was very well laid out with lots of space and a huge fire ring. The road is rough so have a 4 wheel drive vehicle.

Hipcamper Jeff

Talk with host, try the meatballs!

Or host was very accommodating. Some of the campsites can be tricky to reach so be sure to communicate via text with the host regarding trailer size, precise location, etc. He'll get back to you if you have questions. And order the hot dogs and meatballs!

Thanks for a memorable stay! We really enjoyed talking with you too.
