Restful & quiet sanctuary
I stayed at The Sanctuary for two weeks living from a tent. It was a sanctuary. I felt very safe and rested well. It was quiet and with the location perfect for star gazing without any city lights. It is a bit of a bumpy drive back in but I was able to get back fine with my Mazda 3 and enjoyed the spectacular views on the drive in.
Steve may come across as a bit rough around the edges to start with, but dont be fooled by that. He might be bold, loud, and public with his convictions and beliefs, but he's one of the kindest hearted people you'll ever meet- always willing to help and is quite the story teller too. This was my first experience camping off grid to this extreme but Steve has loads of experience and is always willing to answer questions and had so many great tips for local highlights and national parks and I soon felt at ease and confident living life in the wild.
And... he also helped out with a flat tire.
The camp is entirely off grid but there is still access to flush toilets and showers. One day I went into town and heard there'd been a power outage in town. I never found out. Obviously with all off grid living there is a process to keeping those conveniences running, (genetators and propane) but if you communicate with Steve he can always use his truck to get the water pressure/pump going as needed.
All in all: i can't wait to go back.
This is a gem! My husband and I stayed for only one night on our way across th country but would have loved to stay longer. Very peaceful area. The local town is very cute. The owner is very nice and hospitable.
We ended up not staying the night. We drove all the way down a winding one lane dirt road past where it said the site was on the map. We were greeted with a sign saying “Biden is not my president” and a gun rights flag and other political messaging. We could not turn around because the dirt road was one lane and in poor condition and we were towing a camper. Steve took us to a site near his house and helped us back our camper in “to the best site” which had garbage on it. Once we were able to back our camper into the site, we drove out of the campground.
Very welcoming in the woods.
The trail into the property Isa bit rough but we made it in our station wagon without any issues.
Steve and his family welcomed us very warmly and showed us our spot overlooking the valley. The whole area is fairly densely wooded and finding a perfectly flat, stone and root free spot is tricky so worth bearing in mind. We have airbeds so this wasn't an issue.
There are nice flushing toilets and hot showers which is a really nice bonus.
Spectacular views and huge chipmumks
This is a fraud
the campground does not exist. they are taking peoples money and leaving them with no where to camp. my wife went there after booking a night, and there was nothing. she asked the local people and they said there is no campground. the police said the same thing. we called the number and the man that answered was in california. he accused my wife of tearing his sign down. said she was on video doing it... my wife is a marine, not a vandal. reports are filed for fraud.
Wonderful place to stay
Wonderful and unforgettable experience.
We highly recommend this campground, beautifully perched on the mountain side. Our family loved exploring the property. There were so many activities for the kids. There were chickens and roosters. Bikes, a baby swing. A small obstacle course. Basketball hoops. A volleyball or badminton net Even a church.
There are amazing views too.
The host Steven was friendly and accommodating. He welcomed us with humorous stories and answered all our questions. He checked on us after we set up and we had a great time exchanging stories with him and learning about how he built everything on the property himself.
We had the pleasure of meeting several other campers who were just as pleased as us with the exception of one elderly woman, if I recall her name was Donna, who was rude and invasive to other campers and demanding toward the host. I felt terribly sad that such a wonderful person was being treated so unfairly. His property is off grid and rustic and is ideal for people who appreciate nature. If you want a posh hotel and a butler to order around this is not the place for you.
You must order the mountain man breakfast! Steve prepares this feast himself and it exceeded all expectations. The food was so delicious and the best meal of our whole trip.
We can’t say enough good things about this place. Excellent value for a memorable stay.
My stay was awful. I upgraded from a campsite to the large cabin. We were informed by our host when we arrived that unless we brought our own generator, we would have no electricity. That is NOT what was described when I reserved the cabin. at 10:45 pm, someone looking for the host opened the door and shined a flashlight in my face. It was sweltering in the cabin and needless to say, it was a horrible night. I would never stay here again or recommend anyone stay here.
