Just minutes off the highway the bustling world falls away as the road turns to gravel and the mountain views come into sight. A short walk from the parking area you will feel like you are in the middle of nowhere. Pitch your tent on the large platform nestled next to the hillside perched over an ephemeral stream bed. The platform also host two Adirondack chairs and a fire ring with a grill. For those who don't want to completely disconnect there is also power available on the platform. Although not far from the main house there is a great sense of privacy. Near the end of a dead end road the spot backs up to 150 private acres abound with wildlife. Pileated woodpeckers, Barred Owls, Fox, Deer, The occasional Moose, etc.

A beautiful space with the comforts of a living room outdoors. The platform is basically a bridge over a creek. There’s an outdoor shower (not on), outlet, outhouse and fire pit. Very magical spot to play :)

This site is primitive and charming. You are not far away from civilization, but it's hard to believe once you are nestled at the campsite.

We angled the tent on the platform. We heard it, but didn't feel any breeze. 

The platform is right above this cute stream and beautiful ferns.The dog found the site very relaxing.

Great spot, but the platform has rotten boards. I only weigh 160 pounds, but one of the boards snapped, causing me to fall through, injuring my leg and my wrists.

Super cool spot. Easy to access and safe but completely private. I have a tiny camper that I could easily park in a private spot, but as I suspected, could not get it down to the platform. For a longer stay I would set up a chill spot in order to enjoy the very cool setting down by the platform. I would stay here again for sure.

Cool little spot just a few minutes off the highway. Our stay was in and out in less than 12 hours. This was perfect and just what we needed. Would love to stay here when the stream is running!

We had a great time at this peaceful camping spot. We easily made a fire in the pit, and then relaxed back into the 2 chairs waiting for us. It was novel to sleep over the creek on the platform. How fun!
