“Amazing!! ”

Reviewed Feb 19, 2018

Overall Rating

If you’re in a camper van, you HAVE to stay here! It’s amazing! The views are incredible, it’s not crowded, it’s FREE! The roads are a little scary going up but the roads themselves are clean and well maintained. Like other reviews have said, I would NEVER drive an RV or pull a trailer up here, but vans are great! We’ll def... more

“DO NOT ATTEMPT with a trailer”

Reviewed Feb 17, 2018

Overall Rating

Should have listened to the 2nd reviewer. We too were lured by the amazing views of the 1st reviewer and thought we’d be fine with our 31’ trailer given his 32’ made it up. We were wrong. The road up is quiet steep in spots and hairpin turns made it extremely difficult and technical to navigate. We made it to the top but only after rip... more

“Still unclenching”

Reviewed Jan 09, 2018

Overall Rating

We read the other review and thought “awesome! This place sounds like perfect boondocking!” We’re in a 32’ Class A, the other guy towed up a 32’ airstream - no problem, this will be great! Oh man were we wrong. The road is single narrow lane and dirt most of the way. It is also surprisingly busy. The pull out at the top is actually a l... more

“Fantastic views! Watch out for HIGH winds! ”

Reviewed Dec 26, 2017

Overall Rating

This place is a dream! It’s a bit of a steep, windy road and our 32’ made it up but we had to take it slow. The road is in good condition though. Once we arrived at the first pull off, we knew we wanted to park there. There’s the most incredible views of the valley and the Pacific Ocean. The sunsets are spectacular! It gets pretty ... more
