Stayed there in 2020.

There is something great about staying at a vineyard. The ready access to wine is great. We had a wine tasting and then drank way too much wine!

The place is a field in front of the vineyard. It has a porta-potty and a fire ring. There is also a picnic table available. There are a few sites. Gary was a good host. There was a couple of guys camping next to us and they played music for us. It was great!

A storm had passed recently and the porta potty was sans door. For woman, this was a privacy issue but I made sure I told everyone so they would not go to that side.

The Chateau is simply stunning and magical. All campsites are along a lovely little creek. You are literally camping on a vineyard. Wish we had time for a wine tasting but will be back soon to try. Gary is the best.

Basically you’re in a field. With a picnic table. A row of picnic tables next to the woods .If you’re more concerned about being close to town than having any kind of an authentic camping experience, this place is for you.

The outhouse door was lying on the ground.

The owner knew this.

There is a nice little creek flowing through the property that you can camp next to. There are a few spots to camp along the creek. I don't think any of them are bad locations. The winery is a nice addition and there is a large clearing for activities. Gary is also a really lovely, welcoming host. The most unique part of the experience is the location. You are right next to Salmon River State Forrest and this gives you access to lots of hiking trails and swimming holes. The only thing I would fix would be to update the location instructions as it was hard to find the correct campsite at night and I could have used more details in locating it.

The location is beautiful and remote. Site #2 was pretty secluded, grassy and spacious.

The portopotty was very clean. We only shared it with one other site.

We went apple picking. The kids had a great time. There are lots of quaint little towns and state parks in the area.

Will definitely come again. The downsides are that there are no showers and you have to walk up to the main building to fill up water.

Nice host - Gary gave a great recommendation as we were leaving to check out Salmon River -- a nearby state park with a beautiful, crystal-clear river. HIGHLY recommend making this detour during your stay.

The campsites were just in an open field and not spaced very far apart. There were only two other campers in our area and we had a great time hanging with them. But if you're looking for something secluded, this is not the place. My camping buddy did the wine tasting while I was making camp. He said the flights of wine were VERY generous pours, so he came back pretty snockered. Whether this is a bug or a feature depends on your perspective!

Stuff that was not so good:
The portajohn was still not fixed -- it's big and the door is lying beside it. We had to let other campers know when we were heading there so they wouldn't walk in on us.

The firepit rings were not really installed -- just there on the grounds and not "dug in" to the ground at all. So we had to watch constantly for embers coming out from under the ring to the very dry ground surrounding. Please be careful with your fires - these are drought conditions right now!

Overall a nice time, but not really because of the campsite.

This was a GREAT camp site! It was the first time camping for a lot of people in my group and we all had a great time! I would absolutely stay here again.
