Lovely site right next to the Lama Foundation. We were super pleased with the reception of the host, and the ample space to spread out and not feel surrounded by other campers, as one would at a park campsite.

Stephanie was an amazing host and ensured we were well prepared when a snow storm rolled in. She was very responsive to communication and very accommodating with our rooftop tent. The camp is amazing and very peaceful with plenty to check out around the area. Highly recommend this Hipcamp!

We had a great experience on Stephanie’s land! Beautiful views to wake up to as we made our morning fire. Stephanie provided all the wood so making a fire was a no-brainer. She was very responsive, even when we got in late, and the directions to get there were very clear. Very cool spot and hoping to come back in warmer months!

Stephanie’s property is a very special spot! We loved the surrounding community and the set up of the camp. The views were great. Sunset was beautiful. It was also such a pleasure meeting Stephanie and visiting with her. She was very welcoming. We also loved the brief appearances of her dogs. They were very sweet. We hope to visit again.
