Heavily wooded 27 acres with a year-round babbling creek that cascades in waterfalls (one is a 25-foot drop!) across the property. During the rainy season the various waterfalls show off in dramatic fashion! Add to the magical sounds and marvelous setting a small Christmas tree grove, a smattering of goats and chickens, and two playful livestock guardian dogs who will become your best friends. Relax under the night stars, hike/bike the Sierra Nevada trails, or pop into a nearby winery with friends. OHV or horseback riding is also available along with river rafting during the summer months. You are limited only by your imagination!

The best waterfall getaway!!
We loved our stay at the campsite on Bras and Brenda's property! Our crew enjoyed saying hi to all the animals (goats, chickens, pups, and ducks!!), taking a dip in the waterfalls, and even got lucky enough to enjoy some fresh eggs in the morning. Would recommend to anyone who wants a relaxing getaway!

Waterfall Shire Platform w/GLAM BR
My friends and I enjoyed our time at Brenda’s and Brad’s Waterfall platform. Very unique place with a beautiful view. We went to the Folsom lake during the day to swim and paddle board and spent evenings at the platform interacting and watching stars at night. Having a summer shower was a great addition during hot summer weekend, as well as having a place to hang out next to the waterfall. We hope to be back in the future. The hosts were very responsive and helpful and it was a great experience. Travelers get a chance to see farm animals and dogs next to the parking

Excellent host and camping site. Our family spent two very happy nights. Beautiful environment and very quiet. Brad helped us deliver our things to the camping site and was very enthusiastic and friendly. Highly recommended camping site.

Camping with a HAART of gold :)
I had an unbelievable stay at Brenda and Brads Glam Platform - it was a very zen spot and not needing to use my white noise on my phone because I was stationed next to a WATERFALL? amazing! Brad and Brenda were amazing hosts that gave a wonderful overview of the land for the wedding venue they run, their plans for more camping platforms, the beautiful work they do surrounding the christmas tree non-profit for HAART foundation and taking in rescue goats from the local fires in the area. I am excited to follow more of what they do and looking forward to returning!

Stunning view
The camp was exactly as promised. The waterfall view is stunning. Plenty to explore on site. The site is very private and hosts attentive.
