This sheepherders wagon was constructed in the late 1800's. It was pulled by two horses or mules with the sheep herder setting inside the wagon with the reins through the split entry door. A lot of the ideas of the modern RV were first developed and tried in this home away from home. One person and two dogs, two horses was all that was needed to care for a 1,000 to 1,500 head of sheep. Life was simpler then.

If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
This is a great experience for folks looking for a rustic, simple, nature-focused stay. The breakfast was tasty with pancakes, locally made sausage, and coffee. I highly recommend the Big Quiet if you want something different than the typical hotel experience.
I'll lean into the word rustic since nature is definitely doing its thing. The wagon had a notable mouse dropping smell that was hard to pinpoint. When I mentioned it to Rod he was very quick to clean the space but unfortunately the smell persisted. We only stayed two nights so I'm sure with more time they'll find the source.
The firepit is awesome and it was nice to have hot showers. Note that one morning the hot water ran out since I think many people went ahead of us. You should have an attitude of rolling with the punches :)
If you're a dog person then you'll likely enjoy the camp's dogs who are fun and love to play fetch, ball, etc. I look forward to coming back sometime!
I wasn't entirely sure what to expect when I initially booked but I loved it! Great spot, great hospitality, would absolutely recommend! There were hammocks and communal fire pits and the breakfast was so nice.
Good: Amenities were great, the location is breathtaking, and overall the site was very nice and comfortable.
Bad: Sheepherder’s wagon had so many moths and bugs I ended up pitching my tent in the middle of the night.
