Beautiful private serene campsite
The Bluffside view campsite and our experience with Jolene far exceeded our expectations! It was very private, you could only see the other 2 campsites if you stood in the creek or walked around the property. There was one port-a-potty for all 3 campsites and it was closer to the other 2 sites but still only a short walk and very clean! The creek was shallow which made it perfect for my 2 and 5 year olds to play in. It lulled us to sleep every night. The water spigot was very close to the site and next to an incredible sand pit with every toy construction vehicle imaginable. We couldn’t get the kids out of the sand pit or creek! You had to drive to access hiking and biking trails but we didn’t feel the need to with playing in the creek, sand pit and just enjoying the site, there was plenty to occupy our time. Jolene was very responsive every time we needed wood and was incredibly warm and friendly, she even brought us fresh tomatoes from her garden. It will be hard to go back to state camp grounds after staying at just a beautiful, clean and private place. We will definitely be staying here again. Thank you Jolene and family!
A beautiful area
This was a great change of pace from a regular campground.... Jolene was wonderful, her kids were a great help and her property is stunningly beautiful and well maintained. We will be back soon.
Beautiful primitive campsite!
We loved spending the weekend at Bluffside Views! It was by far the best place we’ve camped as a family! Most campgrounds are packed with people & very noisy so we really enjoyed the quiet . The sound of crickets & water flowing down the creek were very relaxing. We had our tent right by the creek & fell asleep to the soothing water every night! Our 4 kids loved playing in the giant sandbox/hill full of every kids dream of trucks & construction vehicles! Our 2 dogs enjoyed splashing & drinking in the creek & enjoyed the quiet for relaxing during the day. We loved the space very much & are already planning our next trip back! The cows were also a favorite to my little ones!! It was also nice being so close to home!
Great site next to the river!
Last minute Fall camping trip and we found a gem! Same day booking, host was quick to accept and get us directions. Right next to a creek that had the perfect sounds of small waterfalls, very easy to drift off to sleep. Lots of trees with great Fall colors still on them. Host was also quick to supply firewood when we asked.
No question we will go back again!
Heaven on earth
We were in a pinch because we had rented a RV for the same week the temperature took a huge dip. All the campgrounds shut off water, and some closed entirely. This was our first time renting or even using a camper. I found Jolene’s listing on Hipcamp and reached out to her about water/electric. She replied quickly and was very accommodating. All communication was very timely and easy. She came out to meet us, and she’s so friendly and down to earth. The property is absolutely stunning. The creek runs right past it and is so peaceful. We saw Bald Eagles and a King Fisher fly right over us. I would love to come back again. What a beautiful place for our kids to run free and for us to relax.
We had a great time camping in my truck on Jolene's land. We were directly on the creek and could see trout swimming around at night. There is a picnic table, a nice fire pit, and trees on the edge of the site. Firewood is available for cheap. I would definitely come back.
Our new favorite camping spot!
What a beautiful spot to put up our tent! Gorgeous valley views, and the sounds of the creek soothed us to sleep. Jolene, Riley, and everyone else we met on site was so friendly, making sure we had everything we needed. Super clean porta-potty. Plus it's close to some beautiful natural areas to explore. Couldn't ask for a better camping experience!
Beautiful sylvan glen
Jolene was super friendly and excited for my two kids and myself to have a peaceful Memorial day camping trip. Beautiful idyllic babbling brook right next to us as we slept. Very generous amounts of wood for the large fire pit. The tree frogs were active chirping back and forth and the peepers sang a beautiful chorus through out the night. To top it off we had some epic thunderstorms, perfect to terrorize my teenagers as we listened to ghost stories on the blue tooth speaker ;) We will be going back!
