I really have to say that Cyrstal has set the standard high! This was the best Hipcamp we've stayed at so far. The property was clean and well maintained. Amenities were better than expected. Location is surrounded by stunning views. And finally, Cyrstal couldn't have been more friendly and helpful; when I mentioned I was looking for offbeat photo opportunities, she quickly brought us a map with local sites highlighted that she thought we'd enjoy. Simply put, best site ever!
Camping on the Carbon River was a great experience and our host Pat couldn't have been more personable. We did have a 20' trailer which was a bit tricky getting into the campsite as it has low clearance and the campsites are on a levee which requires driving up a steep incline. Luckily we were the first ones there for the weekend so we had our choice of campsites but had the one or two sites that would accommodate our trailer been occupied I'm not sure what we would have done. Overall a great weekend.
Although the host was very nice, the property was a bit in disarray and she wasn't very communicative. It was especially awkward when after she told us we would be the only ones on the property and to text her if we had any questions, people started arriving for what I can only assume was an impromptu party given by the host although no explanation was given to much later in the evening. We felt as if we were intruding.
Wow! What an incredibly experience we had at HORSE LOVERS PARADISE! It's like we won the trifecta; the area is beautiful and full of interesting places to explore, the campground was stunning and so picturesque, and finally our hosts couldn't make us feel more welcome and at home. We're all ready planning our next visit. We arrived with hopes for a pleasant weekend which were might beyond our expectations and left with great memories and friendships.
