If you want isolation and a complete getaway, this is the site for you. This campsite is a bit more rural and remote than our other sites and if you don't have 4 wheel or all wheel drive, don't even consider it unless you like to hike with your kit up the mountain. It is further up the mountain, although not so far that you can't reach the bathrooms and showers within a 20

My husband, dog and I had a lovely experience staying at Arcadia Sanctuary! The woods were beautiful, the camp site was excellent, Fran was a wonderful host, and the shower/restroom facilities were by far the best of any campground I’ve been to. Great vibe, friendly people.
Beautiful site and a friendly host
Fran was a wonderful host, very communicative and respectful of our privacy. The site itself was beautiful (though only accessible via 4WD, which we knew going in). We were also treated to an impromptu jam session, which was a lot of fun to listen to. There was plenty of firewood around our site. The campgrounds and surrounding woods were lovely, and we hope to have a chance to return to explore them some more!
Very special spot!
Our stay at Arcadia was wonderful! Fran gave me a much needed and eye opening Reiki/energy work session upon arrival. The mountain felt very special and we loved being surrounded by nothing but nature at our campsite. We ended our trip with a lovely breakfast made by Fran with delicious options and customized herbal tea! I feel very blessed to have had such an experience this weekend. We will definitely be visiting again:)
This is a beautiful place in a great location which is convenient to some wonderful hiking spots. Fran was friendly and helpful and the bathroom facilities were amazing! We ended up using an alternative site at her place, The Upper Balcony site, because we were hammock camping and there were more trees for our group. The Crow's Nest site would have been wonderful for tent camping though. It was remote was a beautiful grassy glen in the forest and would be perfect for star gazing. Definitely would stay here again!
