The vibe at The Oaken End _/\_ Forest Site
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
First, let me say that the description of the site was accurate. The site overlooks the sunset, with a nice viewing deck and a smaller deck up a trail. There is a clean bathroom, a mulched area for tents, and a fire pit. The host was easy to communicate with and fast to respond. The site is a few hundred feet from the nearest house, but private, the houses not being visible from the site. The road up was decent, you will likely want a 4WD or AWD due to one steep gravel section. The locale is quiet except for the occasional rooster on a nearby farm. The place has a good vibe, we would stay there again.
