Moon Meadow at Dragons Gate is a lovely quiet site of meadows surrounded by tall Evergreen trees. Home to abundant wildlife including Elk, Deer, Bear, Coyote, Eagle, Hawks, Owls, among others.  Come pitch your tent and make your camp to enjoy this lush green setting.  There are four fire pits to chose from to make your camp around.  

The area has gently rolling hills filled with wildflowers during the earlier part of the Summer. Dragons Gate Gardens and Wilds has a hundred and twenty acres to explore.  The Skookumchuck River is a little over a mile away where you can enjoy a waterfall and walk along the river with low bank where one can get into the water. Doing so is a great favorite of our guests.

We are wild and woolly. We provide a place to experience nature as it simply is. We privilege pollinators above human aesthetics.  Wildflowers abound, including various dandelions which many are edible and healing plants.  We encourage converting from lawns to meadow lands being supportive of wild birds and insects. If you like it wild we are the place for you. This is not a resort or English style garden. Tall grass, wild flowers and trees fill the land around you to give you a feeling of full immersion in Nature.

When requesting to book please include if you are bringing a trailer or RV and its length, how many cars, how many people, and how many dogs. With that info I can better site you and your party.

So as not to disappoint the expectations of our bookings, the water features which had been previously offered are not available to our campers due to the Covid 19 scare. These include the pool, hot tub and showers. We are doing our best to be in compliance with our current County mandates.

This was a very lovely camping space. The trees and flowers in the meadow created the perfect backdrop for a magical experience. Kathleen is super friendly and helpful. She welcomed us with open arms and is a wealth of knowledge.

Very nice stay here, when we went it was very private. Lots of a la carte amenities. Nice fire pit, comfy grass. Site is a little drive from the entrance area.

Very beautiful and secluded. So so nice to take a hot shower! Shower and main house (where the water is!) are not walkable from the campsite. Bathroom was not in great shape. You’d be happier w a 4 wheel drive to access the campsite. Otherwise it was great!

Hi, Abby, I'm sorry your visit was not as stellar as you expected. Moon Meadow is our lower-priced camping area and it is stated to be open camping in a treed meadow. One does not need a 4 wheel drive to access it. I have driven to it with my Prius which has a low carriage. Natural meadows and area are not flat like a city street or parking lot. Perhaps our more expensive sites would be more to your liking as they have a service road that leads right to each designated site. Many of our guests like to stretch their legs on the short walk to the front of the property which is less than a half-mile from Moon Meadow. There is a water spigot right next to Moon Meadow. As to the outhouse, it can get pretty ripe if our guests do not use the cedar shavings which I provide to cover their poop and the smell thereof.

Peaceful meadow surrounded by tall trees. Pleasant, attentive hostess. True boondocking without hookups and primative style outhouses. Tons of space for big rigs or tenting, or anything in between.

We had a wonderful time at Moon Meadows at Dragons' Gate. Kathleen and Moz are such friendly and warm hosts, along with their unbelievably friendly dogs. The fields of daisies were endless and breathtaking to behold and explore.

We stayed at Site 1, at Kathleen's suggestion, as it was the easiest for our camper. There was a large firepit there, and Kathleen delivered firewood right to us. Our kids pretty much ran wild and free, which was just perfect. There was an outhouse and water spigot nearby, but we didn't use them, as we used our camper toilet and water.

This was a perfect spot to relax, unplug, unwind, stargaze, and connect with each other. We can't wait to come back!
