Leif was exceptional. His hospitality, local knowledge and general character made our stay great. So great in fact, we extended! Would recommend to anyone.

As for the amenities, they are as advertised and pictured. You’ll be staying basically in the front yard of his home but don’t let that dissuade you. There’s plenty of distance between camp and his front door. Bathroom facilities are clean and environmentally friendly, shower is as expected and he even let us use his guide books for the area.

Nice area, three sites. Pit toilets are mostly open with a shield away from the sites and house. Shower is open to the hills behind a screen which worked fine for us. This is basically right in their front yard, but there is plenty of room and a picnic table at each site. We arrived in the dark and were confused about where things were and Leif was kind enough to respond and come out and help acclimate us. Great jumping point for glacier and the ski area. Would recommend.

I stayed at Leif’s for several days in late July and early August with two of my girlfriends. After a week of camping in incredibly remote places, we were happy to be a little closer to civilization (and have more regular phone service!).

Leif’s property is well-maintained and we felt comfortable and safe on his land. The outdoor shower was an absolute delight (oh, the joy of continuously flowing warm water), and the available composting toilet close to camp was very convenient.

Additionally, the proximity to Whitefish proper was great! We’d never been to the area, but we really enjoyed it. I recommend the Mountain Berry Bowl food truck for a really nice, lightweight breakfast or lunch, and my favorite store in town was The Toggery, which had very reasonably priced apparel. Deer are *thick*, so be sure to keep an eye out for them and drive slowly.

Finally, Leif and his pooch, Augustus, were genuinely great hosts. Leif, I’d be so happy to stay on your property again the next time I’m in NW Montana!

Leif and his wife were very friendly and accommodating. She noticed we had mountain bikes with us and came over to give us some intel on the local trails. Convenient location for hitting up Spencer mountain, nice outdoor shower and washroom with a view 😊.

Great spot at a reasonable price. I was able to get wifi near the house and respond to a few emails, and there is a shower to boot! Would highly recommend to anyone looking near whitefish/glacier for a quiet and relaxing spot to pitch a tent for the night.
