The vibe at Ponderosa Pine Paradise
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
This was a fun place to stay. The gal running it is new to having tent campers so it was a bit more rustic than expected but she was an excellent host! We arrived at her place, and she had a folder with information about the place and things to do nearby as well as a bag full of freshly picked cherries from her tree (yum!). She warned about bears being seen on the property and we did see a bear twice but thankfully without any problems. Just remember to lock your food up! It was a very quiet and secluded place with gorgeous views! It is fairly quiet, although you can hear some traffic from the main road, and coyotes howling at night. There were four of us in site 6, the "mountain view" which is farther away from water and the bathrooms but very pretty. Your water will come from a hose and the bathroom is quite rustic.
The camp area is dog friendly (we had four with us) and lots of fun trails to walk around on. Just know there aren't any picnic tables at the sites. Just a fire ring and a tarp for your tent. So you might want to bring a table of some kind for cooking/eating/etc. Great place though! Would give it 4 stars out of 5!
