Primitive campsites are located within one and a half mile of the Channels State Park entrance. One can hike, bike or drive to the Channels if that's your destination. Beautiful views, forested hiking trails on old logging roads are plentiful on our 125 wooded acres. Wildlife abounds in this remote setting. Other interesting features are nearby salt mines with Civil War history and a nearby farm store, Goshen Homestead, less then 2 minutes away. There you will find firewood for sale, pastured poultry products like eggs and chicken, grass-fed milk meats and cheeses, ferments, dried fruits, baking supply like grains and flour, etc. All organic and non-GMO. You will be sure to find all your breakfast, lunch and dinner needs. The town of Lebanon is about 15 minutes away. Breaks Interstate Park is within an hour drive. Surprisingly, most phones get full service.

Camping before hiking!
The privacy was amazing and my dog loved running around and enjoying nature. The views were great. Nathan was very helpful on access and making sure everything was good for us. The road to get there was quite steep. Just FYI. I would think you may need either 4 or all wheel drive.

Such a pretty spot! Especially in the fall or winter with the views of campsite 2, we loved waking up to that view. GPS coordinates took us right there. Even tho service is sketchy driving there, I had 5 bars at the site. Would definitely recommend and will be back

Beautiful outlook campsite. Instructions to get in were helpful and once on site it was easy to set everything up. There is a potter potty and as far as they go that was the nicest one I’ve ever used. There are useable fire pits which is perfect, and some easily useable firewood off to the sides. The sites are pretty close to each other but we were the only ones and it was perfect. It’s very close to the channels which makes it easy to get there early in the morning which was great.

we were pretty bummed to get to the campsite and find that someone else was in our spot (#2). not sure if this was a reservation error or if they just thought we were no shows and decided to move from their spot to ours (we got there around 10pm). thankfully there was another site open (#1) so we stayed there, but it wasn’t the most level, and a little challenging with the ladder of our rooftop tent. site 2 definitely seems to have more level ground (hence why we chose it, but alas). i will agree with other reviewers that it’s a bit of a steep road in, but it is gravel most of the way — we were in a jeep and had no issues accessing sites 1 & 2, but the roads up to the rest of the sites looked steep and mostly grassy (from what we could see at night). getting into the gate was no problem, the sites are clearly marked, and the proximity to the channels is a big perk.

The site was awesome! No one else was on the mountain with us so it was nice and secluded. By the entrance was a beautiful view where we enjoyed a beautiful sunset. It was quite windy and cloudy the rest of the night, which is outside of anyones control. Other than that, such a great time and highly recommend! Bonus points for being SUPER close to channels :)
