A wonderfully private and secluded site with wonderful amenities, such as a trash can, grill, propane fire pit, and picnic table!
We loved our family stay in her lovely forest enclave and enjoyed great day trips. Thanks Melissa!

Such a great spot for camping! Great amenities: sweet grill, portable fire-pit, garbage can, toilet, fresh well water, picnic table and flowers! It was like Glamping without hitting you over the head with a fluffy pillow. Great spot for two and a pup. Loved the location and views. We will be back!

Absolutely wonderful place to getaway. And Melissa thoughtfully provides numerous essentials: Water, Ice Chests, Picnic Bench, Propane Grill and ... even a Propane Fire Pit/Table and chairs. The campsite is an ample-sized clearing off a switchback road leading to Melissa's house. You actually drive down into it, so it is very private and you're surrounded by Pine trees. Thank you so much, Melissa, for providing this amazing space, so close to Boulder and Golden for much-needed getaways.

We loved staying there! Melissa was wonderful. She thought of everything! Pictures are accurate of how things are set up! She checked on us half way through our stay to replenish some supplies. She had wonderful suggestions for activities in the area.

Great location! Quiet, isolated, and the sounds of the rushing river to put you right to bed. Definitely need a 4 wheel drive vehicle during the rainy months. Great location and amazing host. Highly recommend.
