4X4 REQUIRED/No Creek
While the description of the directions/area is accurate it should be noted that a 4X4 is necessary. We took my 2WD Chevy Equinox out there and ended up stranded because a large rock cracked my radiator. It should also be noted that there was no creek. Everything was bone dry. I understand this was August and obviously not the fault of the host but if you are expecting a creek for some relief (like we were since we brought our dog) there is no water. Just a few things to be aware of.

Quiet but no toilet.
Beautiful setting, quiet except for the creek but a very soothing sound. This is really a great campsite if you have a vehicle that can handle rough roads (we made it no problem!). A beautiful area to explore. Disappointed that we we were unable to use the toilet as it was just a hole in the ground. I found that out a week before and was not able to cancel because of the rigid policy. There are pictures in the listing of a wine barrel with a hole cut in the top and a toilet seat. That would have worked but it was not there. When I asked, I was only told that “there is no toilet seat.” That was disappointing. Also, last campers left the ash bin (for the toilet) full of bottles. Hard to manage this kind of site from a couple hundred miles away. I also have to say that the rate is way to high for what you get considering I could have camped anywhere within a mile of there on national forest land for free.

Repeat visitor to Alpine Valley
Are you interested in remote/dispersed camping but are nervous about arriving to the forest after driving for hours and then not finding a spot? Want to find a beautiful campsite that is truly isolated but is a half hour drive to stores/restaurants and a major freeway? Want to interact with a friendly and communicative host ? This is why we returned for a second camping adventure at this spot. Reading some of the other reviews of fellow travelers, I want to emphasize: make sure you are prepared. This is not an "asphalt RV parking lot with coin operated showers" kind of place. You'll need an off-road capable vehicle, self-contained water and cooking gear, and a wildlife friendly "pack-it-in, pack-it-out" attitude. And if you forget anything, just cruise back to town and pick it up!

EXTREMELY ROUGH ROADS
THIS LISTING IS NOT APPROPRIATE FOR TRAILERS OR VEHICLES WITH LOW GROUND CLEARANCE. The listing should explicitly state this. Otherwise it is a beautiful spot.
