This is a small spring fed lake that you are camping right next to. Its 5 minutes from Baker Lake Rd and 10 minutes from the historic town of Concrete. There are miles of roads behind the lake property that can be used for bike rides or walking. The property backs right up to an elk preserve, so there is a  chance of spotting wildlife. Osprey, eagle, beaver, bear.  The lake and the surrounding land around it are private. That being said there is little disturbance of the ecosystem that thrives there. Its pristine wetland that dissipates into healthy second growth. Each camp is setup about 100 yards from each other.   The road is also used by the local power company but their maintenance trucks are few and far between. Each campsite has its own toilet. Its a compostable system with wood chips as the medium. These are special fermented wood chips so it creates a no smell environment. There is also a bathroom at the public boat launch. Make sure you have a discover pass to use that one.  The photos of the public boat launch are not the camp sites. The camp sites are half way down the lake. The public boat launch is the only swim access area. You are next to the lake when your at the campsites and you can go down to the lake from your camp spots but its not an ideal spot to swim.  When its rainy the road going to the camp spots can be muddy. A low clearance vehicle is not ideal even in dry conditions. On one of the sites, where you park to where you set up camp is a short 50 yard or so walk. For the other site you are parked right where you camp. And the other 2 spots at the back of the lake are basically just flat spots to work with. Still in a nice scenic setting. Great for camper vans and RVs and still manageable for tents.  Also minimally excavated. We try to keep the moss and other forest floor life intact while still having manageable space to work with.

Taylor was a great host, we arrived early at the boat ramp and Taylor let us start our camping time early and made sure we got settled in well he even brought us some kindling for our fire because we forgot some. The outdoor toilet was definitely a new experience but it was still pretty awesome being in the middle of nature! Overall was an awesome place for private camping and calm lake kayaking!

Taylor's spot is awesome. He has a few sites (first come first serve) that are all pretty cool. We had 6 people and it was comfortable. Taylor was very commutative and helpful with any troubleshooting. He also provided extra firewood - we were very greatful. The toilet we clean (and compostable). It's next to a lake so don't forget your bug spray! Thanks for a fun weekend, Taylor!

Was able to stay at both the river spot and up at the lake during our stay. Great flat spots to pitch tents, awesome fire pits with firewood, toilets at both spots (river spot is indoor plumbing, lake spot is outdoor compostable toilet).

Great wildlife spotting, saw a river otter, bats and lots of birds, including a hawk diving for a fish!

Road up to the lake spot can be a bit muddy so better for 4wd or higher clearance cars, and you'll want to bring shoes that can get muddy if you get out to open the gate.

Bring bug spray for the lake spot, some mosquitoes but not too bad.

Taylor was very responsive and helpful, even carried firewood to the firepit and helped us switch spots when the fireworks were getting to be too much in the valley, definitely a great spot for a little getaway!
