The site was very clean and camping by a river is ALWAYS a plus for me. The add-on option for firewood was also very helpful to us and a better price per bundle than others I saw charging upwards of $20 per bundle. We loved our stay in our new/used camper as we are first time camper owners. Would definitely recommend 👍

A little slice of heaven! So relaxing, the view is breathtaking. While you are slightly near the road you’re just far back enough to barely notice it. It’s quite private. The outhouse is very clean. The picnic table tucked under the trees is a perfect spot to unwind. With a 20-30 minute drive to bear lake I couldn’t ask for much more!

This is a peaceful place with nice views. Even though it is close to a busy highway and an active railway it is easy to sit back and just watch the water flow by, the birds fly, and tune everything else out. No cell reception means it is a true getaway.
The location is very easy to find and there lots of space to spread out. It is next to a slow body of water with lots of vegetation so bring ample bug juice.

I'll start with the pros first. The host, Bobi, was very responsive and easy to work with. The site was secluded, meaning we were the only ones on the property and didn't have to worry about other campers. The site was beautiful! The Bear River runs along the site, and it's surrounded by beautiful green mountains. The site was easy to find for everyone who joined us on our camping trip. We also didn't have cell phone service, which I would consider a plus because it meant that everyone was present and not looking at their phones. The site is close--about 30 minutes--from the Minnetonka cave and the north beach of Bear Lake. It was the perfect site for our group, which wanted to visit the cave and spend a day on the beach. Lastly, the outhouse at the site was in impeccable condition, which is consistent with my experience overall with the host.

The cons. You are camping in a cow pasture, so there's some cow poop. The host said they'd clean it, and they did a great job doing so. We were not bothered by the cow poop, but some people might be bothered by it. Just something to be aware of. Although you're in a beautiful field surrounded by mountains and a river, you're also right next to a highway and train tracks. You will hear traffic and the train come through on a somewhat regular basis. So if you're looking for a quiet site, this may not be the best option for you. For us, the noise from the train and cars wasn't a big deal, and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. After the first night, you get used to the train coming through. I didn't wake up the next two nights when it passed.

At bottom, the site and its host were both great. I would recommend the site to any group that is looking to have some space from other campers but also wants to easily access some fun activities nearby.

This was a great spot for a larger group! There was a large grassy field for the kids to run around. The river was fun to paddle board in! The location was close to Bear Lake - so it was easy to escape the heat. The outhouse was nice, clean and roomy - so easy to change your clothes without feeling gross. There wasn't a lot of shade - so definitely would bring some shade tents. I would totally make another trip the Banks of BearRiver! Bobi was also quick to respond to questions. We had a great time!

Our stay here was short notice but we were happy at the ease of access to the property. Definitely appreciated the outhouse and the river was such a beautiful place to hang out. This area is for sure prone to wind so be prepared for that and although you feel remote out here by the river there is quite abit of traffic noise/trains throughout the day. Would stay again just for the beauty and the sandbar in the river!

The owner was super helpful.
We unfortunately arrived around 9:30 pm in the dark. Despite very explicit direction, we overshot the entrance. There were not ANY physical markers to the entrance off the main road where trucks go by intermittently during the night.
The cell service was scanty as we were calling for further instructions. The owner was so kind to go out on her 4quad and shine her lights paralel to the road to help kind us into the entrance.
The location was beautiful at night on the side of the river bank and serene.
We made a wonderful fire and had dinner listening to the wild around us, watched the stars and moon in the sky above with stunning background of the sharp edges of the rambling hills. The next morning we woke up to a wonderful bankside vista.
Very well maintained property with firepit and an outhouse with potty seat!
Thank you for our last night stay before our departure home:)

What a lovely, lovely place! We had the whole place to ourselves. The view was wonderful! My husband had a very refreshing wash in the river. The outhouse was very clean. Previous review with vehicles on the highway didn’t bother us at all. Cow manure all over but we found a perfect spot, collected wood around and had a good fire.
