Set your natural clock to the rhythm of the sun and stars in this primitive camping place in front of Elk Mountain lookout tower! Unencumbered living off the grid, no tv, no wi-fi, limited electric, and spotty, if any, cell service. Bring your own tent. Amenities include an outdoor shower, an outhouse with a composting toilet, and free coffee in the morning. Our "kitchen" consists of a picnic table and a propane stove or grill for your use.
Don't have a tent? Ask me, or upgrade to the Camper!
