Watkin's Place at McCully
Fantastic Remote Place To Stay
I spent an evening, night, and morning here to break up a long drive. Other than having everything I needed to rest and relax, I found that this place is magical in itself. The peace and quiet, all the amazing nature and wildlife around. It was awesome. Highly recommend!

Site 4 - McCully Heritage Project
Site 4
Camped here with a friend over the weekend and it was a perfect start to our camping season. Neat trails to explore, quiet and clean campsite. Stayed at site 4 and could not complain about the lot. We had two six person tents placed and there was still space for a third tent if needed. Plenty of trees if you care to bring a hammock. Would recommend and will definitely visit again.

McCully Heritage Project pond site
Amazing place to camp!
This was my second time staying at the pond site. I can't say enough good things about this camping site; the site is spacious, there are trails right on the property and good fishing in the pond. This is a great place to camp with friends or family. I heard coyotes at night and saw a few deer in the morning. One of my favorite places to camp, I will definitely be back!

Site 4 - McCully Heritage Project
We loved Site # 4
I loved camping here with my 4 year old and our dog. The location was easy to find with the clear instructions. So much space and trails to explore right from our camp. I appreciated the option to add on firewood, our fire was perfect for the chilly night we had and it was extra nice to have a heated bathroom nearby with a clean drinking water spout. Would definitely stay here again! Also, I highly recommend the Barefoot Restaurant about 15 minutes South from camp. They have beautiful views and a delicious breakfast buffet.

Site 2 - McCully Heritage Project
It is good. Site 1 I feel is best, Site 4 is good and 2 is decent (which we stayed), and site 3 is closer to the road which is on the noisier side.

Site 4 - McCully Heritage Project
Annual 2023 Winter Solstice Camp
My Winter Solstice Camp of 2023 took place here at Site #4, an absolutely beautiful woodland location at the McCully Heritage Project. Very peaceful atmosphere. I was here previously in March 2023. I loved the site so much that I came back again with my Snowtrekker hot tent with my wood burning stove inside my tent to celebrate the beginning of Winter. Awesome night sounds like the Barred Owls and the bobcat are prevalent. Great hiking trails and peaceful nature scenery enveloped me the entire time. Even the rain on the tent ⛺️ was a beautiful sound. I will be back again soon to enjoy the peaceful setting of this woodland!
