Perfect for first time campers and families

Beautifully landscaped, very well maintained campground with sites on a grassy lawn surrounded by gorgeous mountains.

Perfect for those who want to get a taste of camping with children without going too far from the city.

You get the comfort of on-site bathrooms with regular toilets and a shower, which in my experience is vital when traveling with young children as they often refuse to go to the pit toilet and solely for that reason do not want to stay overnight.

We had a camping birthday celebration for my 6 year old twins with other families with young kids who have never camped before and it was perfect. The middle lawn on both loops is so big that we had a volleyball net set up, and were also able to play many other group games. Children had a ton of room to run around wild without ever getting out of sight.

One of the fathers even drove out to surprise everyone and with fresh Starbucks in the morning 😄. It is very close to civilization yet feels like you are in the wild, so if your kiddo or you change your mind in the middle of the night about the entire “camping thing” - you can just pack up and be home in fifteen.

Perfect place to get introduced to camping!
