Vehicles and Parking

The road to Backland is part of the adventure, but it may not be for everyone. The last 8 miles (around 15-20 mins) of your trip will be on scenic and beautiful unpaved Forest Service roads. These roads are graveled, well maintained, clearly marked and are suitable for most vehicles. We do not suggest motorcycles, or ultra low clearance sports cars.  Four-wheel drive is not necessary. You can expect there to be some wash boarding on the roads and depending on the weather, potential areas with shallow water. After your trip to Backland your car will likely be dusty (or muddy if it has rained). There is one designated parking spot per tent located adjacent to your tent. Additional parking is available by the lobby.

Right to Refuse Service

Backland is privately owned and operated and reserves the right to refuse to admit, refuse service or accommodation or remove a person, without refund, who refuses to abide by applicable State and Federal Laws or these Camp Policies

Campfires

Campfires are only allowed in the designated fire pits. If Forest Service fire restrictions are in place campfires may be unavailable. All other fires, including fireworks, are prohibited.
