Parksland Retreat Sunrise Cabin C1
Very low key spot to chill in the middle of the woods! Dustin is the best

Parksland Retreat is a little piece of heaven! Dustin is an amazing host, very kind and inviting. Everything was very clean and organized. The hike down to our campsite, P3 Creekside was no joke. We camp with a lot of gear and it was challenging to get it down and back up the mountain but it was definitely worth it. Such a peaceful and relaxing trip. Exactly what my wife and I were looking for.

I loved the how inviting the whole experience was. The camp was well maintained, the trail was well marked, and an amazing comfortable bed.
Definitely recommend to anyone who loves to be free outdoors. Thank you for a great time Dustin!!

I loved this little spot. Dustin was so helpful and friendly. We felt immediately welcome and at ease.
P2 is right next to a little creek, but is also at the bottom of a small canyon, so expect a hike. It took about four trips from the car to get everything down there. Once set up though, it was so beautiful. Very quiet, very peaceful.
Big thanks to Dustin for creating such a beautiful area.

The sound of the bubbling creek near FF3 is so calming. Dustin’s land is a favorite of mine and is always so beautiful. Dustin is very welcoming. I took a person with me that had never been before and only thing to remember is parking is not anywhere near your campsite. You will have to pack in and out. So some people seem so off putting about that. The swimming hole is always fun!

Second time visiting. Great spot where one can truly relax and let loose. Visited the off-site swimming hole that Dustin recommends, Blue Hole, this time. Definitely recommend! Beautiful spot.
