Beautiful spot, very secluded. Fully immersed in nature. Very kind hosts! They set up tents for you if you want.

This was a fantastic little spot in the pines! Our trip coincided with some inclement weather and luckily for us, the campsite has an elevated space that kept us up and away from any puddles. The hosts were very sweet, accommodating, unobtrusive, and responsive.
When you come, be sure to check out the beautiful parks and drives in the area - we got to see the elk roaming and enjoy the beautiful fall colors, as well as a few juvenile bald eagles :)

Purple Pines is stunning & perfect!
What a perfect spot this site was. Beautiful pine trees surround the most quaint camping site, mourning doves all around with their beautiful song but not annoyingly so. Such a wonderful spot in nature, I would love to stay again if I return to the area!
Anne met us upon arrival with a very kind welcoming. We had total privacy with the comforts of knowing owners were available nearby if needed.
The outhouse was perfect, not creepy like some, and very clean!
We were very impressed with our stay.
If you stay here, make sure to check out the old town nearby, it is stunning!!!
I highly recommend this spot. Very peaceful, beautiful and quaint, just like we love in a camping spot.
One of my new favs on Hipcamp!

My boyfriend & I loved our stay here!! it was perfect for the two of us, plenty of room to set up a vehicle, tables, canopy, & whatever else you may need. perfect area for hiking around. the outhouse is not far & very clean. Anne was very nice, met us at the spot to show us around & answered any questions we had. We would definitely visit again!

Loved the solitude
Perfect get away spot from the rat race but close enough to run to town for supplies if needed. Bit of a sharp turn driveway, but our teardrop could be maneuvered with ease. Very accommodating host who didn't mind us showing a little later than usual and made a special trip with firewood. This was our first experience with Hipcamp and we thoroughly enjoyed it!
