Johannes has a really great piece of land! It overlooks Blue lake and is perfect for if you want a fantastic view but don’t want to share it with a bunch of people. Saw some deer and plenty of birds.

I would advise anyone staying at the site to make sure to look at satellite view on Google maps to get an idea of the roads you will need to take to get to the site, and make sure you have a map printed or downloaded to help you get to the site. The roads you’ll take are not on Google maps but you can clearly see them on satellite images, so you can trace your route ahead of time. Johannes was very communicative prior to the stay with providing directions so just ask him ahead of time if you are confused about how to get there. You will need to drive for about 25min on these primitive rocky roads to get to the site (we had plenty of clearance in a Subaru cross trek).

Definitely bring a 4 wheel drive vehicle to access the site as it's far from the road and involves about a half hour of driving on mountainside terrain. After reading the previous review, i knew to check the satellite image ahead of time. Unfortunately even with the satellite, we still got a little turned around. We contacted Johannes to ask for directions and didnt receive a response for 3 hours, which was surprising because he was so responsive up until this point. So we continued on our own and eventually made it to the site. We rented the site expecting to be the only people there, but when we arrived there was a cluster of about 5 other tents.

After scouting the open area and quickly realizing the rocky ground wasnt going to make for comfortable tent sleeping, we drove around until we found a secluded space. It reminds me a lot like public land (hmm), where there are trails following the power lines and plenty of open area.

The view was stunning and we ultimately enjoyed our evening. It just required quite a bit of searching on our own.

Terrible. We contacted customer support to help us get our refund. We stayed at a local campground instead.

Some people need a better GPS, hire a tour guide or stay at the nearest 5 star hotel. Camping is not for for everyone.

We had an amazing stay! When we first arrived we were a little unsure if we were going the right way but looking at the satellite maps on google helped us to reach our destination. Once there this private overlook with land as far as the eye could see was better than we could have imagined. Hiking the surrounding areas took our breathe away and the solitude this site provided was the perfect getaway! Johannes was great helping with directions and answering any questions we had. 10/10 would stay here again!

Hello Alex! I am so glad that you enjoyed it, you are welcome to return anytime! The only thing we found from your stay with us was the tire tracks. Thank you for being such a good camper and preserve our pristine sanctuary for future camper's enjoyment.

We didn't make it to the campsite, roads were poorly marked, very rough to pull a travel trailer.
GPS cooridinates were fine but google maps couldn't find our location.
