    Scott and his family were wonderful hosts. The property is spacious and beautiful, with a campsite in a cozy clearing great for fires and stargazing, as well as a separate shady day use area right next to a crystal clear creek with fish, river otters, and plenty of other wildlife. All within about 100 meters. There was also a well maintained walking trail around the river bend which was great for a morning walk. A truly great price of land that provided us a great respite from the daily grind, thank you for sharing this with us Scott! We will be back!

    Really hard to describe in a few sentences. Very isolated spot with multiple further isolated campsites. Use of entire site is permitted- there are options to kayak, fish, hike, swim...even some small caves and rock formations to explore. Wildlife was abundant- turkey, deer, owls and hawks. The wildflowers and butterflies seemed to be everywhere and the dark skies perfect for stargazing. Scott and Jamila are wonderful and easygoing hosts. Can’t wait to return in the fall for the colors and even more opportunity to explore around Twisted River!

    The campsite was perfectly private tucked away in the trees. Once we told Scott that we would need some trees for our hammocks he even carved out a new spot on the property for us! So kind and accommodating, I really appreciated it. The creek down the road was a perfect spot for a swim so that was really fun too!

    Scott (host) was very welcoming and was very timely in his communication. We ended up with about 1-2 inches of rain over the last half of our weekend, but were prepared and still had a great time! Trails and creek were a highlight and the site was very private. We'll he back and thanks again, Scott, for the hospitality!

    Scott was very helpful when we called. He called back in 10 minutes.
    Scott’s wife came down to welcome us and make sure we had what we needed.
    The site was secluded and safe. Enjoyed our stay. The water was a short walk and the trail was well kept.

    The gate to get to the campground was hard to find. Can only be seen from one direction. The road was not appropriate for any Class C or Class A RV. We needed to walk ahead and move or remove branches hanging over the road. The sites were not marked so we were not sure we were in the correct spot.

    It's a nice place to stay if you're in a tent but I wouldn't recommend it for an RV.

    Well mowed sites, new table, firepit, prompt replies from host. Quiet and peaceful.

    Hard to find. Could use a sign or something to earmark the turn. Directions say blue gate but gate is grey. Gate was open and pushed into brush and hard to see. Road not conducive to RVs (which we said we were bringing). Trees scraping roof of RV (no, no, no!) and sides. We had small RVs (about 21 ft) and a bigger one would be a total disaster. Once you're on the logging road you're committed. Sites are unmarked even though you're assigned a number leading to mass confusion over which site is "ours." Creek pretty but too low to swim, kayak. I think the host really needs to alter his listing regarding being RV friendly or communicate that this is best as a tent site.

    We had a very enjoyable three night stay secluded in the woods. It was great hearing some of the wildlife in the area during the night.
