RV Sites:

When you first pull into the campground, there is a ramp to your left that will lead you directly to the RV parking sites. We also have approximately 8 RV sites.

We encourage hi-tech equipment that are independent of gas, or utility power.  We strongly discourage noisy gas generators. We can show you what we use, i.e. solar power to run events like karaoke and pull water from the river etc.

Available Activities:

-Fishing (Fly fishing, catch and release only!)

-2 Ax throwing stations (East and West sides of the river)

-Primitive bow shooting

-River Sauna on weekends

-Karaoke on weekends/big events

-River Tug of war

-Local Bison ranch where you can feed the mother and baby bison.

-15 away from Lava Hot Springs swimming pool and hot pools.

This property is located 15 minutes from down town Lava Hot Springs (between Inkom and McCammon) or 2 hours north from Salt Lake City, UT.

This land is primitive.  It's a place of refuge and safety.  The only rules here are as you cross the gate, you follow the Indian Ten Commandments .

The ten commandments are to respect the land and others.  Come with a open mind to be healed from whatever you might be dealing with in your personal,  family, or professional life.  I assure you if you put forth the effort....watch the stars at night, listen to the small water falls, silent your electronics, you will receive personal revelation from the Great Spirit, our creator, who loves us all.  If you forgot to bring a notebook and pen, don't worry, everyone that comes to this sacred land to visit, receives a notebook and pen.  Please find the time to be alone. Find your own little spot....there are several.   Too many to mention.  This property has changed my life immensely.  I assure you if you put forth the right amount of effort it will change  your way of life....we always have room to improve.  You will seek a better understanding of your purpose in life....why am I truly here.  To be a dad, raise kids,  or much much more.... 

This is a carry in carry out location.  There is no power, but plenty of sun for solar powered devices.

Please feel free to contact me. The best way is by text message to my personal phone. Iif I don’t respond right away, don’t worry, I will.  Leave a very detailed text message, screen capture your booking and send it to me....i.e. My name is....i booked on May 5th, for East 1 tipi...on May 10th for 1 day.  I was wondering if I could change it to May 11th, and get East 5, because my friends from school just found out they are in East 6 on May 11th.   There are a lot of instances where either I can't hear my phone or my phone isn't with me at the moment.

Just what I was looking for. The RV spot was wonderful, backed up to the river. It was quiet and peaceful. Joel was very kind. I could tell he wanted us to enjoy our stay. We will have to return to stay in one of the tipi’s. They looked very fun!

This is a beautiful peaceful place run by a very kind man. He made our experience so fun and took time to talk to and teach our kids. We’ll be back

This is a beautiful property and we really enjoyed our stay. Joel was a great host, very personable and accomodating. There is a lot of open space and it was nice for our dog to romp around the meadow offleash.

Beautiful lazy, river, perfect for kids and families.
Very dedicated and attentive camp host!
Proximity to train tracks is novel, but also a bit jarring in the middle of the night! The beautiful, quaint, laid-back atmosphere and the host’s respect for the land he is sharing more than make up for the night-trains!
We we definitely be back!!
