This is on about 3 acres with a river running through it. It is only a 5 minute or so drive to Yuba Lake. The nearest town with a grocery store is Nephi, the nearest gas stations with convenience store and Dairy Queen is 7 miles away. You can stay plenty warm at night in the winter, with a woodburning stove and a 3 setting Mr Heater propane heater. The cabin can only accomodate 6 people comfortably, with small kids it can be more. There is some room for an RV and or tent for more people, but only 1 small portable camping toilet.  This is your own private spot on the Sevier River less than 10 minutes to Yuba Lake, includes an off grid cabin with limited solar power, beds, 2 lofts, can sleep 6,  limited water in summer season, when water doesn't freeze @night & portable camping toilet, fire pit, BBQ picnic table, plenty of space to boondock your motor home, tent, RV. Private fishing right off the property steps from the cabin. You can float tube, fish, SUP, canoe etc. There are watercraft rentals available at Yuba Lake an Marina with RV dump available. Miles and miles of ATV trails in the area. An hour away is the Little Sahara Dunes.   This is in a desert setting, where there can be critters, to include rabbits, lizards, spiders, flies and various other wildlife. This is more like camping with some nicer creature comforts like beds, blankets, wood burning stove etc. but not the complete comfort of a hotel. This is more like a state campground cabin. But with quite a few more amenities. And no crowds.

Lazy River/Yuba Lake Cabin/Off grid
What a gem! This cabin is great. The sleeping arrangements are excellent and the kitchen set-up is top notch and has almost all the conveniences of home. We got snow overnight and it was generally pretty chilly, but between the stove, a propane heater, and generous amounts of bedding (as well as some extras we brought for ourselves) we had an overall very comfortable experience. The area is just gorgeous, especially with the winter weather rolling in. Secluded enough to feel like you have some peace and quiet, but not too far from anyone or anything if you needed some help in a bad situation. The roads leading to the cabin are very well maintained. We have discussed returning in the early summer to take advantage of the beautiful bend of river that the cabin backs up to, as well as nearby Yuba Lake. Karen is a great, communicative host who provided excellent directions to the cabin as well as in-depth instructions to work the amenities she has provided. Her cabin is well stocked and obviously quite loved, and it makes for an overall excellent experience.

Super fun adventure
All righty! We had a great trip and it was so fun. I want to be really thorough in describing what this place is because we had some idea but weren't fully prepared. The loft beds are very spacious and cozy. You could fit four adults comfortably on each one. There is some bedding provided but bringing your own can't hurt. There is also a queen bed on the bottom floor and a fold-out futon so this place really fits quite a few people. In the photo they don't show how many mattresses are in each loft, but it's a bunch. Super nice. Bring plenty of water, as there is no water pump. Be prepared to need water to wash dishes, hands, etc. The porta potty is really a small container the size of a cooler that is in the cabin itself, and the shower is a metal tub with a curtain. We were five adults that were not family, so it was a tad uncomfortable of a situation. We ended up mostly relying on nature to do our business. There is a shovel for doing such things properly and it is private around the cabin so sometimes you just gotta do what you gotta do. The kitchen is equipped with camp stoves that run on fuel. Worked pretty well. We cooked and fixed coffee and all that. Bring plenty of ice in your coolers. Scipio isn't terribly far when supplies are needed. Bug spray is a must! The place is idyllic, peaceful, secluded, and cozy. We swam in the inlet and had lovely times by the fire. All in all, I would absolutely return, particularly knowing precisely what to prepare for.

Perfect lil getaway
Our host Karen was very nice and helpful. My husband and I had set up a small tent outside, while the children slept in the cabin. The cabin was equipped with many essentials. I definitely liked the space I had in the kitchen area to prepare our meals. Enjoying a hot cup of tea while awaiting for the sun to rise over the mountains was the perfect way to start our day. Being along the river brought much peace and was very relaxing.

Great time at River and Yuba rec
Great spot with access to the river right from the cabin door. Fishing and swimming possible on the river. Yuba lake is <10 min away. Cabin offers everything you need for a simplified camping trip. Sleeping spots for multiple people, small kitchen, fire and grill for cooking.

We had a great time! Make sure to explore Yuba Lake. You can take lots of back dirt roads and find a private lake cove. We spent most of the day at the Yuba lake. We enjoyed the cabin in the evening when it cooled down. If visiting in summer make sure to prepare for heat and remember this is a dry county so bring your beer the closest county to purchase beer is about 40 min away LOL🤣🤣
