This place is a gem!! Ample room to camp and the host was so awesome to deal with, super nice and very helpful. We had a roof top tent so we didn’t get to use the porch to camp on but it is 18ft x 14ft so it can fit as big of a tent as needed. There is even a tarp up there in case you need one. The whole property is large and super peaceful and aside from a handful of car sounds off in the distance, all we heard was nature the whole time. The composting outhouse is pretty effin cool and may just be the best place I’ve ever done “business.” There are ropes to help trek the steep inclines too which was extremely helpful. My wife and I are already planning our next trip here.

Bart was a fantastic host! Even in undesirable conditions, Bart was more than accommodating and understanding. The campsite was beautiful and everything we were looking for. I could not recommend the location and Bart as a host enough.

Bart was an AMAZING host!! The hike up to the sleeping porch was super steep and I ended up having an anxiety attack. Bart was happy to accommodate and let us camp in a different location. He was available if we needed him any time. The location was gorgeous and lots of care was taken into the property. Directions were crystal clear and we found the camp easily! Would definitely camp here again!!
