Not as described
We never made it all the way to the site because the directions never stated that it was 5+ miles of poorly maintained, rutted dirt road that twisted, turned, up and down in a previously-burned area that was denuded of trees and exposed to full sun. I was in an RV and explained that to a host before leaving and he said it would be OK, but I can definitely say it was not OK for me.

Ended up with another host
GPS coordinates took me to a private residence, that had no clue about any camping areas on fiddler Rd. Drove all the way to the end of the road and spoke with 2 other residents about a possible campground and nobody had ever seen campers before.

Awesome, isolated campsite
Jarvis' spot was great and very isolated. The check-in procedure was not as Jarvis explained and I would highly encourage anyone who books to make sure that its all sorted with him. To his credit, he was extremely responsive and sorted things out as quickly as he could. Once that was sorted, we had everything we needed with a beautiful view and there's a great little creek with swimming holes nearby that we loved. The best ones were a short hike over some rocks to get to. The starry nights were incredible and on clear days, easy views of Mt. Lassen! A few other things to note: - Little to no cell service. We had to hike up a ridge to get it - Campfires didn't seem like a great idea from how dry everything was and I'm not sure there were any fire rings ready for our use. It was plenty warm though so not a problem at all

I would not recommend staying here. We couldn't even find it. The directions were very vague and there was absolutely zero signage to let you know where the gate to get in is. There weren't even road signs to try to follow. I wasted my money on booking this site and looked like a fool to the people i went with. I drove two hours to get there, drove around for another two hours trying to find it and then drove home again. Don't waste your time.
