This is a great site, with a couple of caveats. First, it has wonderful old trees, a lovely creek (soon to be restored for a past salmon run!) and green grass, a large private camping site with an old brick fire pit and a picnic table, herons, hawks, and other wildlife. It is a huge site, with wide open spaces and beautiful views of the stars and moon on clear nights. Lots of room, trails, and places for people and dogs to explore and play.

Matthew was wonderful, very accommodating and kind, making sure that all was as we expected and wanted. He had firewood and charcoal for us, showed us around, and made sure we knew where folks nearby were in case of an emergency. All around good guy.

The only drawback for us may not be for others--it is not for those who are looking for isolation or a peaceful, quiet spot. The road is very near, and is fairly heavily traveled, and there are numerous trains passing, especially at night. It is also close to a working farm, and we heard both chainsaws and gunfire. It is also close to town, with all the positives and negatives that brings.

The other thing I noted about this spot was its potential for STP folks and other types of large groups traveling. There are numerous places to pitch tents, and it pretty close to the freeway. The location of the fire pit and grill could be used for a community kitchen if a large group of bikers wanted to camp in the meadows. I think marketing this to STP folks would be a great idea.

For folks who are looking for a beautiful site and who don't mind some noise, this is a perfect selection.
