Fantastic view and secluded from everyone. Ellisa was very friendly and helpful with providing information about the surrounding area. She wasn’t overbearing and just allowed us to enjoy our time.

Wow! The scenery surrounding this campsite was insanely beautiful and it was nice to have so much space and privacy as compared with some public campsites. The host, Ellisa , and her husband were remarkably kind and warm! I think I will remember them most! We had a large + gregarious group of happy campers, and they really let us sing our hearts out and have the best weekend. I would love to return someday to this beautiful place in Oregon! Thank you thank you!!!

Our doggies had a blast! The view near the rim

This was a top-notch experience, don't even think twice about booking! The photos don't do the place justice, the drive to the property literally looked like Croatia or Greece, it was absolutely stunning. The camping site itself was incredibly serene and picturesque, a desert dream. Our group camped right by the rim overlooking the river, it was beautiful. And Ellisa was a fabulous host, her communication was so timely and warm, she gave us plenty of recommendations for things to do in the area, provided helpful arrival directions and set up the site so thoughtfully. If I'm ever back in the area I will definitely stop by this oasis again :) Also lots of hiking, swimming and watersports just a quick drive away!

Glorious winding drive to the propertyThe sunsets are insane hereThe lake 5 min away!Cute fire pit!

Great spot! Very primitive, but that’s exactly as I had hoped it would be,

Short walk to great views of the canyon, and the sites are far enough from each other that you really feel like you have a huge area to yourself. I was here during a fire ban but I look forward to returning in the winter to have a fire.

Communication leading up to my arrival was great, directions were perfect!

Besides a perfect place with great views, Ellisa was very helpful and wonderful to communicate directions for getting in after dark. Can’t wait to stay there again!

Ellisa’s property is beautiful! We drove up at sunset and had views of many different peaks. The campsite was big and quiet. The stars at night were incredible - we could see the Milky Way very clearly!

Total off grid boondocking. Neighboring spaces are FAR apart, plenty of space in most for small group camping. I loved the hiking, great trails and exploring the canyon rim, amazing geology. Kept my dog leashed until she figured out the rim, would hate for a dog to not realize the shear drop off of this incredible canyon, other dog wouldn’t even get close for a picture!. Respectful, quiet campers, hostess met me on arrival and clarified directions to space as well as texting me interesting hikes
