Great experience +our advice
Beautiful, rugged piece of property! Definitely would recommend, and return. Great space to explore for kids. Remote. Feels like the wilderness, with car access. Our family enjoyed our stay immensely. 1. Bugs were great end of May; just a few black flies and a random mosquito. 2. Sad to not be able to have fires (as someone who usually cooks over the fire and loves them). But, worth it. Just bring a propane grill. The views and the land are worth it! 3. Definitely need 4x4, 4 wheel drive, etc to get back to the farther spots on the driveway. 4. Potable water “nearby” can be found at the George Mickelson trailhead in Rochford. 5. No cell service for a while I’m every direction! Have your map ready before you hit dirt roads.

Stunning views and very secluded
The campsite was very beautiful and very secluded. The property was massive so it was nice to explore. Me and my friends loved the stay there. The views are absolutely breathtaking. I give it a 10/10

Private and remote
We all have our own ideas of camping, but for me the more remote the better. This place fit the bill. The ride up was beautiful all by itself. The site itself has a few different areas to camp and can offer multiple gorgeous views from different areas. We chose to go to the top. There isn’t much if any flat area up there, but we set up tents basically on the ‘driveway’ and made do. The area just below is probably a better spot in general for setting up camp with it’s own crazy views, but I couldn’t resist having a view all the way around. I like private areas and this was certainly it. I think we saw/heard one car all night. This site definitely made my top 5 of those I’ve found on Hipcamp. I like our waterways in the the Midwest, but the more remote I can go into the mountains and hills the better.
