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).

Jeannine, thank You so much for checking us out. We Love the pictures and hope You all had a great time. I know getting there was an issue due to the route discrepancy, but we will fix that. Your patience is greatly appreciated. After Your suggestion regarding Waze, we saw the better route and will improve access. We hope to see You all there when we get back to Washington in June. Mahalo Nui Loa! Aloha, John Kauhako

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

Hey Aaron! Well, we'd love to have You back. We think the beauty of the place is it's simplicity. That being said, we are planning to implement a few things this year based off of visitor input. Hopefully Your second time around will be better than the first. Aloha!

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!

We aim to please Braddah Connor. Based off of Your and others info, we will be building a small cabin to counter the elements and also installing a toilet system. Hopefully You'll be back to check it out. Aloha!

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.

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.

The rough ground is good for rolling in!Cushy foam mattresses soften the rocky ground, for people and pupsCheers!Enjoying the views before sunset

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.

Mic. I have a bittersweet feeling towards this experience. We are definitely dog people and we were happy to accommodate You and him . On the other hand, I wish it was the first of many experiences there with him. Thank You for sharing Your photos with us, it was our honor to host You there. I hope Your time there generated some great memories. Take Care, and Aloha. John and Angelica Kauhako

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!

Aloha Melissa, Mahalo (Thank You) for leaving us a review, this means a great deal to us. Your pointers will not only help us to improve on our site, but also give other campers some tips so they too can have a great experience on our land. We recently went to the land and started placing markers, and during the summer we hope to flatten out a few spots and build some fire pits. We would love for you to book with us again with the improvements. Have a great summer!

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.

Aloha Kristen, It makes us feel so incredibly happy when we receive reviews of our land. The fact that you took your time to write really is a blessing to us, so Mahalo(Thank You). To know that you enjoyed the views and found the site with no problem really just makes being a host worth it. We hope to see you book with us again soon. Have a great weekend.
