Can't say enough good things about Ohana (owner). He was super helpful and responsive. The property needs to be more clearly marked but I believe he is working on that. Don't use apple maps or google maps to locate the property. We had good luck using Waze (& really bad luck using the others).
The site is as described -- basically just a big, empty, beautiful area. We had a ton of fun! Ended up sleeping in the van as the winds were pretty intense, but we could have set up the tent, just would have been a little gusty :) Ohana was an incredible host!
We loved this place! Ohana was an excellent host and provided plenty of detail on the campsite itself as well as activities in the area. The area is remote, as described, and beautiful as ever. We’d love to come back and have this experience again
Ohana was so helpful. He provided so much information about how to get to the spot as well as other fun things we could do in the area. Just be prepared for some wind as you are on top of a hill and it got quite windy at night. Beautiful spot!
This site is as expected, on the side of a hill looking into nothing but the rolling desert hills and sage brush. Our only complaint was the wind, nothing anyone can control, but you are exposed so check the wind forecast ahead of booking. We loved the solitude and the coyotes howling at night was cool! Our only feedback is that there are no designations to any campsites or where the land you can camp on is, this is nice because you get to pick wherever you want, but makes finding a good flat surface a little difficult, near impossible in the dark. All said we would love to come back again, Ohana was a great host and answered all my questions when I called.
Perfectly perched on a prairie top
Gorgeous views on top of grassy rolling hills, eye level with souring birds and well above the canyon’s coyotes howling at the sunset. Great private hiking on gravel roads and hills. We were within eye distance of 3 other campers but it was still very private - only trouble initially was identifying flat spots to camp (plus the area is not marked, making it hard to confirm the property lines). Warning: night 1 was INCREDIBLY windy; the other campers left ASAP in the morning! Bring a great all-weather tent or sleep in your car / trailer. The ground is also rocky, so we slept on our Tempurpedic mattress topper and it was heaven. 😀 The wind calmed down considerably the second night and morning, leading to a perfect finish to a magical camping trip. We look forward to going again.
Private and safe. Enjoyed our last camping with my beloved dog... Since my dog can no longer walk, we we're able to drive into the property and camped anywhere. Nice views of the sunset and sunrise. Nice place to see the stars at night too.
We definitely had privacy. The weather was great day one-cold rain and heavy winds chased us away day two as there is no cover to but up against in the high dessert, the wind won. Make sure that your vehicle can handle off-road dips and dives for your best experience. Be sure to bring enough padding for the ground so that you have comfortable sleep too! Coyotes serenaded us at dusk which was amazing to hear rolling up the mountain side. There are scorpions that I disturbed under rocks and woods bits while contemplating building a small fire - so if you’re bringing your dog please be aware of that and the rattlesnakes. We didn’t get into trouble because we were aware but other people who stumble out of their tents to go pee in the middle of the night might not remember to put on shoes or maybe left shoes outside their tents!
Ohana was great and responsive-the land is definitely not marked well so ask a lot of questions if you need to! Happy Camping!
My husband and I camped for only one night, and we wish we could have stayed longer! Although only about a 15-20 minute drive from downtown Yakima, your camp will feel incredibly remote - with amazing 360 degree views over all of Yakima. We were lucky enough to have a clear evening and could see Mt. Adams and Mt. Rainier in the distance. We followed Ohana's written directions and had no problems finding the right place. The road is a little rough (gravel) in places, but wasn't too bad even in our rental car. We were in a tent, and there is some wind (you're on top of the hill), but we would still do it again. A small camper would be excellent too.
