We loved staying at Chris’s campsites by the river! The walk down to the site wasn’t too difficult and it was well worth it! The whole area is very well maintained and he was a very gracious host! We will definitely be returning!

Very quiet and peaceful! Not as close to the water as I would have liked, but still enjoyed it very much. Host was friendly and personally showed us to and around the campsite. No one bothered us the rest of the weekend. There was a small misunderstanding about how the charges were levied, but it was explained quickly and didnt ruin the weekend.

We loved camping at Chris's property! We stayed on the river, and couldn't have asked for a better location. Had a couple of fire pits and a few different spots so you could really choose where you wanted to put up your camp and all of the shade made it fabulous for the warmer weather. We didn't even end up putting up our canopy! There was plenty of room for our dogs to roam, and Chris's dogs were super friendly as well. Chris was a great host and we look forward to staying here again.

Monica was a great guest. I enjoyed talking with her and missed her the moment she left. Im hoping for a return trip so I can enjoy more time relaxing at the river and talking with her about life. Rumor is she is good at Admin work. Lol.

We had a great time! Chris was very friendly and accommodating - he moved us under the forest since it turned out to be rainy and brought us some recently laid eggs. Beautiful location.

Chris made us feel amazingly welcome during out visit. We camped for a few days while on a climbing trip and could not have asked for a better place to relax after long days on the rock. The site next to the river was secluded and peaceful. Looking forward to coming back again down the road.

I was the only one on his property the night I was there, enjoyed a fire right next to the creek and heard the creek water flowing all night, very relaxing but rustic.
