These sites are within easy walking distance from parking ~ 100 Yards. The creek on our land runs wild at times of high rainfall and can be quite low in drought. People do jump in occasionally when the water is high. There is a lake not far from us, about 15 minutes drive, if real swimming and fishing is of interest. The camping sites are unimproved and can be a bit wild or tame as you choose. We kindly ask that all outdoor campers, backpackers and “Yurt-ers” bring their own water and camping supplies. Please only start fires in designated fire pits. During burn bans or drought periods all fires are prohibited. All fires must be COMPLETELY extinguished upon leaving the site. A composting outhouse is available. Also a  shovel is available and we ask that any waste you leave in the woods be "off trail" and well buried, including toilet paper. Insects spray is advised during tick and chigger season.

The host was super friendly and even wrote my name on a sign when for me to see when I entered. I thought that was really thoughtful and helpful. It was just a little walk through a dried up creek to our camp site and Gabby was nice enough to guide us to our spot. I didn’t use the shower but it seems to be a solar shower situation. The dogs we adorable and I would love to stay again, but maybe on a less rainy day since the wetness did attract a lot of bugs.

Remarkable find at the end of quiet roads, serenity and forest magic with a warm welcome. We camped in a circular glade with a fire pit in the middle, crickets and fire flies and the call of birds beyond.
If this weren’t so far away from the East Coast, we would be back next week. Thank you for a special sojourn on a cross-country road trip.

The Light Centre is a place of healing. It was a joy to visit. Everything was peaceful and harmonious. The campground was clean and natural. Plenty of firewood about. Composting toilets area was clean and odourless. Good wagon for moving gear from parking area diwn trails to camp sites. Amazing yurts and other permanent buildings give a sense of solidity. Wi-fi worked well the whole time. Lots of wildlife about.

I have stayed at the light center 6 times now and selfishly have not left a review because I wanted to keep the place to myself. However, each time I go they are building something new and trying to grow their business. If they want to grow, I would love to help. I have meet all of the host and the owners and had a great experience with each. This place is AWESOME! There is so much to explore and see. I had a great time on my solo overnighter. My last trip, my daughter (4 years old) and wife (glamper) came out and fell in love also. Do yourself a favor and make sure you book a spot at the light center. Hipcamp shows they have no showers but they have recently installed 2 enclosed solar bag showers that feel amazing in the afternoon. The trails are kept up and the campsites are maintained. I cant say enough about this place but thank you T.L.C. for sharing your special place with the public!
