It was great. Our first trip was to site 10 we really liked it and didn’t think it could get much better. We tried secret site 17 this past weekend and loved it even more. Completely secluded. Mandy stopped in a couple times to be sure we had everything we needed. Definitely loved having the swimming hole this time. We are definitely planning on another trip later. Can’t wait to see what else they have planned.

The night sky was perfect. The hosts were super-helpful. The grounds were beautiful. The toilet was luxurious. The only downside was that I did not realize at first that “potable water” meant purifying the creek water. We were fine because we brought enough, but that would have been challenging with the creek so low.

HI David! Thank you for the great review! I appreciate your feedback on the “Potable” water...I’ll get that clarified in the write-up. We would love to have you guys back anytime. =)
