Don’t think any more, just book this spot! It was great. I loved tent camping here. It was a beautiful setting, and Jennifer was lovely to meet.

To be honest, I’m not usually very social and don’t look forward to interacting with hosts - I just want to do my own thing - but I felt warmly welcomed by Jennifer and at the same time was given ample space and privacy to enjoy the property.

Other things: The outhouse with composting toilet and outdoor shower were lovely and felt like real luxury! Verizon cell service was fast with three bars. Directions and gps were exactly right and it was easy to find.

These are good people. Friendly, kind, and flexible.

If you need a camp around the Missoula area this is a great option with shower and out house.

I camped one night in my van at Rusty Nail and it was a delightful night of rest. Jennifer is a clear and quick communicator, the land was well cared for and the critters a delight! Don’t miss sunset and the sound of sprinklers and a train every now and then. Beautiful spot.

We had an absolutely fantastic time at the farm! Jennifer is a great host and was easy to get in touch with. Our group consisted of two families, mine had 4 and our friends had 5. Between us we had 5 girls of which the four younger ones loved the tour of the farm and all the animals! We setup our small camping trailer in the pasture and our friends slept under the trees in the backyard. The temps were in the low 90s but things quickly cooled off after 8 o'clock. I would highly recommend staying here and we hope to again when we go back to Missoula!

This was an awesome place to stay, hosts were exceptional, land was beautiful and their sweet dog Avery was the icing on the cake. Great addition to our road trip and we will stay here again if we come back through! Thanks Jennifer and Micah.
