We got there super late but it was still a fun stay! The site is beautiful and comfortable. We heard coyotes, owls, and elk bugling all night which was really relaxing. The host was very friendly when he greeted us in the morning.
Nice place to camp. Both Robert and Angelia were super nice and showed us around when we arrived at the campsite. The place is very peaceful, away from city light and noise pollution.
Perfect camping spot
Such a lush spot! We definitely passed the drive a few times 🤣 there's a large red housing structure on the left I would definitely keep an eye out for that to find the drive. Otherwise a great spot! Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a nice peaceful spot to camp on. Also you MUST stay up and stargaze it's beautiful!!!
Sweet spot near carbondale
This site was awesome! The scenery was beautiful, and the Adirondack chairs, picnic tables and outhouse were super nice touches. There was also a lovely trail of lights leading up to the outhouse- very helpful during nighttime! This site was close to a somewhat busy road, but it still felt very peaceful in general.
Disconnected, quiet, and recharging
Thursday and Friday were extremely quiet. We were the only ones on the property, except some baby ducks, and threir momma, and a mule deer. Saturday we were joined by 2 or 3 tent campers. It was still very quiet and could here the creek babbling while the stars came out one by one. Such a quiet and recharging place to stay! Sunday by the time we woke up we realized that ever one else had headed home. Such a peaceful and amazing place! Highly recommend! Unless you want to book when I am then...
