Dawn was an amazing host! So welcoming and nice. The site sat off of a quiet road with lots of space. The site even had WiFi! We had a great stay and would definitely recommend this spot to friends.

The hideaway is great, along with Dawn being a superb and considerate host, you're space is quite private. It's behind a gate and fence, you can nestle in the trees for comfort. I was able to leave my solar panel up the entire time and be shaded in the afternoon. Very quiet and comfortable!

This place was great, your camping in a field you can see houses on both sides but it’s not bad, no electricity so I ran a Honda generator and it was fine. There are free range chickens and goats I actually thought that was cool. Your only 15 min from downtown bend so that’s the best part. The host was great we got some of her eggs (they were great) we had some gallons of water sitting in the sun during the day while we were gone and she put it in a cooler to keep it cold it was nice. I would stay again we were here for 4 nights

Dawn was super friendly, welcoming, and helpful. The camp site was great. We went to bend for the day to tube on the river and our kids were asking to go back to our camp site to play. Would Highly Recommend!
