This was unpleasant
I had a bit of an unfortunate experience with this site. Im not posting to complain, just to set expectations for future campers. I ended up leaving early that night because what was advertised on the website was not what I was provided. Showers were not available (not hooked up) and they were pretty run down. The hike to the river was pretty flooded with a lot of mud that not even a truck can get through. (which I can’t put any blame to anyone) but it will take quite some time for it to clear up. The firewood listed as to be available is actually the woods. You have to find your own campfire wood. Since it’s rained a lot recently, most of it is wet. Luckily I had a little left over from my prev camp trip that lasted an hour or two. There was a DJ with really loud music testing out their sound equipment at the site that the host warned us about when we got there. It was a long trip to get there so I wasn’t going to turn back. They played til around 10pm.this site was more expensive than most and was falsely advertised.
Big, generous site. Plenty of space and privacy. Quiet, clean and with all the necessary conveniences and amenities for primitive camping. (Porta potty, shower bar, fire rings.)
Host was hospitable and friendly. Spent a lovely weekend on the river and stargazing at night. Dog friendly. Directions are accurate, beautiful drive, not difficult to find.
Overall great experience.
We could not have asked for a more hospitable stay. We drove my car down to the river and camped there. My AWD vehicle made it down just fine but somewhere along the way got a puncture in a tire wall. We noticed the next morning that the tire was flat and the hosts helped us get our spare aired up and get us ready to go. The place is beautiful but for our first time out the hosts where what really stood out. We're very excited to go back (with 4 new tires) to get to take in the rest of the beauty.
Beautiful natural land
It’s a beautiful piece of land to explore. We drove down the 4x4 paths to the river. Very natural land with lots of wildlife. We pitched our tent near the creek and our dogs had a great time exploring. I would recommend not taking your car back past the main property because the roads/paths get pretty rough, but the drive to park at the main area of cleared land with fire pits is easy to get to with any vehicle.
Natural w convenient essentials
Beautiful private peaceful space on Lance's personal property. Backs up to the woods, lots of hiking, and down the trail a bit is the river. Great convenient port a potty but not so close that it's in your face or nostrils. Two really friendly dogs who played hard with our heeler. Shower looks cool but we didn't get a chance to use it this trip. Shopping is 15 minutes down the road. Overall really really nice spot. We plan to come back and perhaps bring friends!
Water mountain campground
The campground was nice, our kids had a blast, we walked down to a creek and they played in it for a couple of hours, if there is one thing that really makes this campground it's the host. Very hospitable, make you feel very comfortable, and inform you of the area.
