Fantastic remote site!
We had a great night at Michael’s site. The space was set pretty far off the road and is not accessible by vehicle unless you have a lifted 4x4. Michael greeted us and showed us to the site which is a bit of a walk in so pack light!
I wish we had been able to spend more then one night! We felt like we were in the middle of nowhere! The vernal pond was full of bullfrogs which gave us a wonderful chorus at night 🙂
This really is a treasure of a spot to get away for a bit!

For myself it was perfect. Secluded enough that you feel far away from everything, however your close to a lot. Very private and peaceful. The host Michael was very pleasant and answered any questions I had. Will definitely visit again.

Michael was a great host. The site was private and beautiful. I could not ask for a better camping experience.

To get to the site its about a 15 minute hike. Michael was gracious and trailered our gear in. The trail is well maintained and plenty of flat ground to lay a tent. The site is on high ground well above the pond. I did not hear a single vehicle from the road. There were a few ATVs in the area but they stay far from the site and barley can hear them during the short time they past. If you happen to forget something, Walmart and grocery are within a 15 minute drive. There are many trails to hike in the area with beautiful scenery.

We absolutely loved our stay here! It has been a long time on the road for us and the three nights we spent at his camp spot were perfect. Michael was so kind and friendly, we just want to say thank you for a fantastic experience!

It was an absolutely beautiful campsite and landscape. We had to reschedule last minute and it was no problem which was very nice. We got our sierra 1500 to the site by being very carful and with minimal scraps so very doable but with caution. Our dog loved it in the woods.

Very chill campsite with a very short walk from the road. Michael met us at the road and showed us around and then we had the private site to ourselves with a nice fire pit and plenty of tent space. Bring everything in and take it out!

Extremely private and secluded without having to walk too far. So very peaceful, especially at night, listening to the frogs, crickets and owls. Close to town (if you decide you need anything) but traffic noise is minimal. Great primitive camp site. Host Michael is very friendly, and gracious. He gives you all the privacy you need yet still promptly answers any questions you may have. The new fire ring he installed is great, I love cooking on the open fire. A++ Would camp here again. Great host, great location, great site! : )

Plenty trees to hang from
