Amazing spot. Quiet and flat. Good for lunch break or over night.

beautiful spot, but be careful in the spring- I met a very aggressive bull. After bellowing at me he blocked me from getting back to my camper for an hour!

great spot like described, lots of leveled space, fire pits around.
you enter through a kettel gate and drive a few 100 meters up a hill

Nice quiet spot in a small meadow, the little hill blocks any road noise. The air smells great and there is weak LTE service here.

Beautiful meadows where a bunch of cows use to roam around. Although at this time there's a lots of poo, none of the moo's. Lots of firewood available, quiet traffic area.

We spent 2 nights basically alone in this beautiful wide open meadow on the mountain. A steep climb up but we’ll worth it. There are logging trucks passing by even during the night, but we were in enough that it didn’t bother our sleep. When you think you’re there, another 200m and there’s an entrance by a no dumping sign. Good for almost any size rig, willing to make the steep climb.

Un endroit en haut de la montagne, le chemin a été faisable facilement pour une berline. Nous y étions seuls, seulement des pickups et des truks de bois ont perturbés notre tranquillité le soir et le matin, ce qui n, était pas très grave. En effet, c'est un chemin forestier. Très propre et on la garde comme ça svp. On y était très bien!

Wonderful site someone made. Fire-pit and seating. Open space and views. 5/5

Wonderful location up a very easy-to-drive hard-pack road. Lots of dead fall for firewood around. Cellphone signal is adequate; about one bar of LTE on Bell/Telus.

Beautiful quiet spot, open and spacious with cows and their patties all over. We went up the little hill by the big Douglas fir and Black pines.

Report Check-In

we had some friendly cows around us the night we slept there. few cars and trucks using the road near by, even during the night. there was an other van sleeping here with us

Amazing open space off logging road. Beautiful views of the valley and very quiet. Assuming good weather, most vehicles should have no problem accessing. Definitely recommend this spot. Look for entrance (it’s not easy to see) by sign that says “no illegal dumping”.

The meadow is beautiful, lots of wildflowers this time of year and trees full of crabapples. The drive up is on a gravel forestry road which is steep and difficult with a trailer. Don’t go past the first meadow unless you have 4x4, the turn around spots are few and far between.

Very nice place. Very quiet. No trucks whatsoever (maybe because it was the weekend). No services at all but just the nature. Loved it.

You have to drive uphill, so a bit further than the GPS coordinates tell you. You barely hear the highway. Quiet night until early morning when trucks drove past us.

Paven rod going uphill. Easy to access. Didn’t hear anything from the street. Recommended for overnight stay
