Apple Tree Camp (Site 2)
Magical Spot! Mosquito heaven.
Really magical property! I threw my 30th birthday party here and we rented both site 2 & 3 and it was perfect. We used site 2 (the apple tree site) for activities and spent most of our time here and we used site 1 as “tent village” we hosted a group of 30 and had PLENTY of space. The property is truly magical. So if you’re visiting, take care of it because we plan to come back. New porta potties were delivered on our first day so they were fresh for our group. Communication was easy, finding the spot was easy. A few things to note; 1. It’s very buggy. We were there in late June and boy howdy did we get eaten up. Bring thermacells and bug spray!! The host let us know ahead of time and we were grateful to have the heads up. 2. We had service! Which was a surprise but we did. 3. The river swimming spot was a short walk from site 2. 4. Bring shade ! Site 2 has some lovely trees but that’s also where the bugs are. We were lucky to have brought 3 shade tents and that was clutch.

Upper Twin Lake Campsite
Hidden gem in grass valley!
We had an amazing stay at the Granary Cabin! It surpassed all our expectations. It was equipped with an AC unit to keep us cool during the summer heat, the kitchen was well stocked, and the decor had a cozy and rustic charm that made the place extra special. Amanda, the host, was fantastic—easy to communicate with and quick to respond to our messages. Thanks, Amanda! For those who love fly-fishing, I highly recommend adding on their fly-fishing extra! It might seem a bit pricey, but it’s worth every penny. The lakes are full of aggressive 20”+ trout that put up a good fight!

Apple Tree Camp (Site 2)
Lovely camping spot
What a lovely spot. A series of little ponds connected by a creek. Beautiful views, and plenty of flat grass and shade. Lots of elbow room.

The Granary Lake Cabin
My third (or maybe fourth?) time here. It’s a great spot in the middle of not much other than wide open views and beautiful rolling hills. It’s the perfect place to relax away from it all.

White River Lodge
Fantastic retreat
Such a fantastic place to stay, relax and to get away from all of the city noise. Great host, great home and we will be making it a regular place to stay when we have away time. Thank you.
