We are both retired or soon to be. We have a love for the beauty of Oregon and this country. We welcome you to share our corner of paradise. As RV part timers, we know saving a few dollars can extend your time on the trail and after all, that's why we own RV's. Pets are welcome. Note: We have a rambunctious German Shepard puppy. She's large, she gets into everything and she has the run of the property. She'll jump, she wants to play ball, and she'll eat your slippers if left outside. She's a handful so if you're adverse to large puppies in your space then you might want to camp somewhere else. Note: water is available in summer Note: campfire are NOT available July - October due to extreme fire danger.

Great hosts, very accommodating with electrical and water hookups - as well as information about things to do in the local area. This place made a great base of operations to go explore the Crater Lake area. We'd love to return sometime in the future!

Beautiful place with electric if desired (small fee requested). Quiet and safe. Alisa was very nice and gave us info on many area places to see. We went to Crater Lake and the Lava Beds. We will return if back in this area sometime.

The gravel road has huge pot holes. Use caution. Its not peaceful like some reviewers are saying. Cars/trucks/ATV's speed down the dusty gravel road at all hours of the night. The german shepherd trampled our grandbaby, and jumped on our new truck; leaving a long scratch. Beware. We were expected to dogsit, and lure the dog back inside the gate if the hosts dog gets out during our exit. Despite the fact that we picked up after our 2 tiny dogs, we were accused of leaving 36 piles in 4 days, even though at check-in the host admitted to not picking up her dogs poop "until it dries out". This place was not what we expected. The profile picture looks like a paradise, but theres junk piled all around and the buildings/home is unkept... The worst HHBW experience, by far, that we have stayed...
