West 2 is closest to the entrance. It’s romantic location is close to the bridge and is located on it’s own little pier  within a horse shoe bend in the river, with water surrounding it on 3 sides. There is plenty of grass and you can drive right up to it. It’s located next to a lot of grassy meditation pads along the river.

There are two porta potty locations. One on the east side, and one of the west side of the river. 

The East porta potty is located directly east of the East Tipi 6 tucked in the trees. 

Each porta potty contains a washing station.

The 6 East Tipi's are located close together and would be a great location for a family reunion or any occasion where you want to be in close proximity  with other campers. The West Tipi's are more private and secluded and are located next to a very large field great for playing games. 

Each Tipi is provided with a mosquito lantern, 3 double wide cots that hold up to 285 lbs on each side of the cot, floor mats, a wire spool table for outside use, a bucket (required to be filled before you start your fire inside the tipi), and a fire ring that you can keep lit all night long. Fire wood is available for purchase. $5/bundle or $15/4 bundles delivered to your tipi site. If you pre-pay via venmo, we will try to have it at your tipi upon your arrival.

Recommended minimum things to bring:

-Old blankets and pillows (embers can fly from fire... leave expensive sleeping bags at home)

-Headlamp

-Covered shoes you can get in the water with. 

 

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.

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.

We also have approximately 8 RV sites and many tent sites available.

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.

I enjoyed everything about my teepee camp out experience. The host, Joel, was above and beyond accommodating. It was peaceful and safe. I enjoyed the train which only went by a couple times a day. Should of brought my own floaty. What a beautiful place to camp. Will camp here again for sure!

Joel’s place was awesome. It was such a fun place with so much to do. Joel was very welcoming and wanted everyone to have the best time possible. The teepee itself was really cool and I highly recommend his place!

Joel was very responsive, had our firewood ready for our late arrival, and his instructions and guidance were awesome. The tips were truly unique and we really enjoyed staying in them with the fire going all night to keep us warm. The train was a different story - this place is right next to train tracks, which we didn't necessarily expect. Huge, long trains went by multiple times throughout the night and we did not get much sleep at all.

Overall, I'd recommend but be weary of the train. It is super loud.
