We were just here a few weeks back and had to return for another extended weekend. Beautiful view from Dan's property and as a host you can't ask for a better property owner.

The view was wonderful, site nice and open with plenty of room. Fire ring was great to sit by, and it's a great place to do some stargazing.

Cle Elum and Roslyn nearby have some tasty spots to eat, and the recreation/boat input area on the road to the campsite lead to some incredible views right on the lake.

Price point of 100 may be a bit high for camping, but all in all we had a great night.

Amazing, beautiful, and peaceful. We've been to a few Hipcamps and so far this tops them all!! Spent 3 night and wish we had reservations for the week. We sleep in a Tepui and and the morning views of Lake Cle Elum with a cuppa just made it hard to start are day.
The lot is large but the view, can't say enough about the view and the privacy. Dan is a great host and has done a lot to his property to make it accommodating to his guess.
The dive way was fine for our Landcruiser and Jeep (both 4 wheel drive) but I can see it being a little tough going with a front or rear wheel drive car.
I can definitely say we'll be back.

Having a cuppa in the mornings enjoying the beautiful view out of the Tepui Evening over looking Lake Cle ElumNo fire ban but we used our propane fire pitOur dog Didji loving the view from the Tepui!

This site is set back on the mountain side over looking Cle Elum lake. Beautiful view and the privacy is worth the premium price you pay. Dan was very good at communicating with us and quick to respond with any questions we had. Heed the warning of the steep drive way, if you are not skilled in driving with a trailer and don’t have 4x4 I would not advise.
