Spent 8 nights in Nizhoni during June 2017. Gets a big A++. Allowed me to explore Cedar Mesa...only 50 miles away. At night it was in the 40s....made for great sleep as opposed to camping on the Mesa which was lows in the 60s...John and Leeanne the hosts are wonderful. Only 3-4 sites taken daily while I was there. Made for a quiet and peaceful stay. Campground is covered with pines making for good shade. A diamond in the rough....
