I just needed a spot for one night, rather than a hotel room. Jill‘s place was perfect. I got to sit amongst the aspens as a summer storm blew over. Jill was friendly and unintrusive. The property is peaceful and felt remote. The camping spot is very close to the house.

Not for everyone but overall nice
Overall we had a good experience. This was our first time camping so the purpose was to test our equipment, determine what we truly need and don’t, and relax for an evening off grid. The location of this camp sight is in the corner of the host’s front yard right along side their driveway. The space was enough for a tent, a few chairs, and not much more. The host was hospitable and was there if we needed anything. There was a potty tent setup as well as a large wooden box that could be used as a table. It was very quiet aside from the sounds of nature. I think this would be a great spot for some, depending on their wants and needs.

Jill is a great host. Met me on arrival and we found the best spot to put my small overlanding trailer. Site is clean, quiet, and has plenty of shade in the afternoon. Area has low traffic in the evenings and when night falls, it's quiet and dark. No issues leaving my gear out all day as I left early and returned in the late afternoon/early evening. Good spot to cook, relax, and recover from the day.

It’s not camping when it is in someone’s driveway 50ft from their house with no lakes around or anything. As soon as I was informed (at the property) of where my tent would go, I was out of there and I went somewhere else, unfortunately I lost my money!!

My husband and I had a great time tent camping at Jill's Mountain Meadows. Our main reason for camping here was proximity to the Mish. It was so nice to have a camping spot to ourselves not too far away. We were also really close to town for a bag of ice. We felt like we had just enough privacy but also appreciated having Jill come and chat with us each morning to make sure we had everything we needed. Also loved that we had a little porta set up! Thank you Jill!
