Craig was a great communicator and gave great directions. However, I’m pretty sure we were given a different campsite than we booked online. I booked one with a view of the lake and we were placed in the woods, which was disappointing. With that said, it was quiet and easy to find.

The host was very personable and helpful. We had the ideal anniversary weekend camping over Flathead. The views blew us away as we watched a gorgeous sunset above the lake. Cannot recommend this serene, peaceful, place enough. Amenities included porta potty, fire pit (wood pile), level tent site, and potable water. Beyond our dreams. Thank you Craig!

Gorgeous Flathead sunset

Craig and his canine buddies were very friendly! The views from the site are great, especially sunset and sunrise. The tent spot for this site wouldn't be ideal with a thin ground pad.

No frills but just what we needed. Tent site overlooking the valley. Craig and dogs welcomed us and set up hose for water. A picnic table would be a nice addition, and a little work to level out the site, but other than that, a perfect place to camp away from the R.V's. and rush of town. We'd come back next year for the Blues Festival!

This was a lovely spot overlooking the lake. The portable toilet was also very clean and handy.
