We had a great time. The view is beautiful and the property is fun to explore. We had a great time and the perfect location for a “socially distant” get away.

It was great , finding the campsite was easy if you have good headlights , it was nice , clean , 10/10 one of the best campsite I have been to , the privacy and the view , there was some woods for us even though , we didn’t order the bundle of fire , electric box work perfectly, and everything was well spaced. With all the great there is one downside, the noise, since you are right by the road , the noise of passing vehicles could make sleep very hard , and waking up to loud vehicles is not ideal . That’s all everything else was 10/10

The view was spectacular which is what this site is all about. It is also just a 15min drive away from the Greeter Falls trailhead. We enjoyed a nice hike during the day and ate a cheeseboard while watching the sunset in the evening...Perfection...

I really enjoyed the beautiful views and well kept site. Brandon was a great communicator and gave good instructions. The only thing I will warn future campers is that the site is very close to a surprisingly busy road with a long hill and some of the truck going up and down the hill can be quite loud. Other than that is is an awesome site.
