RUSTIC MOUNTAIN BEACH DREAM! Camp in mountain solitude with the lake and beach only a short drive away. Enjoy Scotchman's peak and mountain views, sightings of wildlife and horses, stargazing, forest trailheads just down the quiet road; all in a relaxed beachy atmosphere. Shopping, tourist attractions, and all that comes with an eclectic town are just an hour away in Sandpoint. However, a few excellent restaurants can be found in Clark Fork and Hope. Campsites are private and out of view of our off-grid home but just a quick walk away. And you just might enjoy adventure tales from us about riding our horses across America, or make memories when we take you in to pet our horses, bottle feed baby sheep...or share in whatever farm excitement is happening!
A note for booking your best stay: Campsite 1 has the best views, but is best for tent camping or very short trailers. Campsite 2 is flatter and the better option for trailers or very large tents.

This HipCamp was AMAZING! Happy to say we were their first campers!!! We got there a bit late, but were welcomed very nicely by our hosts. Directions were very easy to follow even with no cell phone reception. The site is far enough from the main home, but close enough if you needed something. There are fire pits and fire wood available for use. The horses and donkey on the property are very friendly and have a story of their own, ask the hosts about their cross country journey on the horses!!!! I would recommend this site to anyone looking for a place to stay. Bonus, you're only 3 hours away from Glacier National Park!
Great place to camp after hiking Scotchman’s peak - only 2 miles from the trailhead. Jeanette was a great host! She made us feel very welcome and treated us like we were old friends. We enjoyed meeting her family, horses and sweet dog Bella, as well as hearing about her cross country horseback trek. The property is remote and off grid. Very quiet and secure feeling with good privacy at the campsite. Firewood available for purchase. Potable water at the house.
The road in is a little narrow and rough, but we had no problem getting our 13’ Scamp trailer down it and any two wheel drive car should be able to make the trek in dry weather. Would recommend texting the host for an update on road conditions if the weather is iffy and you don’t have 4wd.
Jeannette was an awesome host! We were the only guests on the ranch for our one nights stay and it was super peaceful. The sites are far enough away that I think it would feel the same even with other guests. Our site was right across from the horse barn and our dog loved his walks to see the “big dogs”. Jeannette’s dog Bella was a wonderful friend to our pupper and to us! We chose our spot to be close to the trailhead for Scotchmans Peak and would recommend the same to anyone hiking it! The property is about 2 miles from the trailhead. Jeannette made us feel at home and gave us recommendations for our second days hike. The trail of the cedars is about 40 minutes from the property in Montana. Super beautiful! It was also super cool to hear how Jeannette and her husband (not there during our stay) rode across the country on their horses and how they got their property.
Jeannette and Richard are wonderful hosts, who greeted us immediately upon arrival. We very much enjoyed our stay ‘off the grid’. Our only misgivings had to do with having pulled our trailer up a VERY rough road and parked in a rather tight spot. In fairness, Jeannette warned us of the rough road, and that our 18’ trailer was the ‘max’. I would do it again, but in a tent...and definitely site #2.
Gorgeous and off the beaten path
Beautiful place ! Private camp spot with added bonus of super cool hosts that were really welcoming and fun to talk to! Easy access to gorgeous swimming spots. Some bugs so bring some bug spray but so worth the stay .
Jeannette and her family are lovely people and gracious hosts. They answered our questions as things came up and were happy to help us with directions and recommendations in the area, including a nice swimming area. The campsite is basic and far enough away from the main house to feel private. Horses are nearby, which we really enjoyed. Others may want to note that there is no picnic table, so bringing your own folding table or larger surface would be helpful if you plan on cooking at camp. These are country backroads so be prepared for bumpy rides and potholes - our Jeep handles them fine, but not sure how lower cars would fair. Highly recommend doing the Scotchman’s Peak hike as the trailhead is only a few miles away from camp- it’s a strenuous hike but well worth the effort! There is no cell service (yay!) there so download your maps before you go and enjoy some off-grid time.
Quiet and relaxing
We had a wonderful time. Very Private. Relaxing. View is great. Lots of exploring options. Hosts were so kind and welcoming. Pit toliet was clean and easy to get too. Ground was a bit Rocky and uneven so tarp and small rake would be extremely helpful. We had two tarps and it was still pretty Rocky. We are definitely coming back!
Really cool spot up in the mountains on an off the grid Homestead less than an hour from Sandpoint. The drive there alone was worth it for the views. Campsite was great. All kinds of friendly animals including lambs that our kids got to feed. Hosts were incredibly warm, welcoming, very interesting and enjoyable to talk to. Highly recommend!
