Drive a mile up old private logging roads to the tip of our mountain and pitch a tent with INCREDIBLE mountain views all around you! Toast marshmallows on a giant rock firepit, have a meal at the picnic table, scramble up a little hill to sit in the Adirondack chairs with a panoramic view, or scramble a little higher to find his-and-hers hammocks on the top of the ridge. This site is as private as it gets! Feel like camping in the buff? Go for it! Unless someone at the Ziplines on the next mountain over has binoculars, they’ll never know. You’re literally on the top of a mountain with no houses or anything in sight, and you’re at the dead end of the road on our property with no other campsites for a half mile. Less than 2 miles total drive from the quaint historic town of Wallace with tons of great shops, restaurants, breweries, festivals, and more. You'll see the lights of the town far below you (and yes, unfortunately you may hear some of the highway noise despite being 600 ft. above it all). Our land is less than a mile from the highway for those just passing through and looking for a unique place to camp on the way. Also there is great cell service here on the mountain top - much better than in the town. DRY CAMPING. Carry in what you'll need, pack everything out again. No bathroom, no water or water source. There is a pay-per-use showerhouse at a nearby RV park. Watch for abundant wildlife. This mountain has a lot of elk! And cougar, bear, moose, deer, coyote, rabbits, bobcats, grouse, turkey, ... it's unlikely you will encounter much but they do live on the land so prepare accordingly. (No hunting allowed). Lots of trails to hike throughout the 150 acres and enjoy dense pine forests and incredible views all around, just you and the wildlife! PLEASE NOTE that 4WD or AWD is required. Technically any car can make it but not all drivers can - there are some steep switchbacks that would require some aggressive driving if not in a 4WD/AWD. WARNING: this site is strongly NOT RECOMMENDED for small children or energetic dogs because there are steep drop-offs all around the camp. We will allow dogs, but bring them at your own risk. Most won't have a problem, but we don't want to be responsible if they do. **November to May: may REQUIRE a snowmobile or ATV with tracks to access the site. The road is not maintained for snow and is QUITE dangerous in snowy or icy conditions. Not safe for any truck or car. If you'd like to stay between November and March/April, please check with us first for road conditions unless you have a snow machine.**

This was an awesome camp site with beautiful perches and views of the hillsides all around. We were passing through for work and decided to park at the bottom of the logging road and walk up. The walk up was only about a mile and we highly recommend the hike if you’re worried your vehicle won’t make it!! It was steep at parts but the short distance is totally doable. We met Barbara and Stu coming down the logging road on their 4-wheeler - they were awesome and super helpful and communicative. We recommend camping on their land!!! Also, Wallace is such a gem with an amazing little downtown for a bite, a beer, or a coffee before or after camping! 🌈

The Point Mountaintop W/ Views is a wonderful spot to set up camp if privacy, space, and gorgeous mountaintop views are key considerations.

During our stay at The Point, my husband and I pitched our tent at the summit site accessed by a private road. We would certainly recommend 4WD/ AWD as some portions of the road are steep, but the payoff is well worth it.

The campsite was mostly primitive, but not without some welcomed luxuries. A large fire-pit, picnic table, and even two comfortable hammocks grace this site. Our thoughtful host was even
so kind as to provide a large container of water. Thank you! However, the most impressive aspect of this Hipcamp were the fantastic, panoramic mountain views. High above the rest of the surrounding world, you are afforded a truly marvelous perspective.

If you’re looking to have a back-to-basics outdoor experience, you will certainly enjoy the unspoiled offering of this Hipcamp. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our time here, and would be happy to visit again.

Perfect out of the way hideout! You are secluded in this getaway but close enough to Wallace to run in for supplies, dinner or drinks.

This was an epic spot. The directions seemed intimidating before we got there but made complete sense once we realized the route was up the road going directly up the mountain after the bridge. We got rained out (by a cool thunderstorm), but the fire pit was ready to go, the place was beautiful, cleared, and just as advertised. Would recommend.

I took this two-night solo camping trip on a whim and, wow, I wasn't disappointed! This mountain top clearing is a spectacular little piece of private paradise. The rock fire pit in the center is circled with logs to sit on along with a large cooking grate, fire tongs, and water jugs for safety. S'mores during the stunning sunsets and sleeping under the stars, heaven. There's a small folding table I used for my lantern and random items. The site is level and could easily hold several tents but it's very rocky underneath so bring a hammer for pounding stakes. If you plan on digging catholes a plastic trowel isn't going to cut it. I had a heavy folding shovel that did the trick but a camp toilet might be easier. There were definite signs of elk and deer but a curious bunny, a few squirrels, and a chipmunk were my only guests. Communication was top-notch! I so appreciated the very clear directions sent after booking. Follow these! And yes, you need an AWD or 4WD. The road up is just as she states - steep with tight switchbacks. More than anything, I want to offer up a giant shout-out to Stu, Barbara's husband, for coming to my rescue the morning of checkout when my car was dead! I called Barbara and she sent him up, jumper cables in hand, within the hour. He was so warm and helpful in a situation that could have otherwise been very distressing. Thank you both for making my getaway an adventure to remember in the very best way!

Upon arrival at the clearing...spacious beauty and breathtaking views! Winding down around the fire for the evening. Catching some shade overlooking Wallace.S'mores at sunset, yum!

Absolutely outstanding location near Wallace, Idaho.

Simply, WOW!

I had a wonderful night up on the hilltop. If I’m ever traveling back through these parts I’d instantly stay here again.
