About Us

“Wilderness is not a luxury but a necessity of the human spirit, and as vital to our lives as water and good bread.” —Edward Abbey


Mission Statement

To provide a unique lodging experience for people who are tired of humdrum hotel/motels, or want more comfort and luxury than traditional camping.

For years we drove. For years we hiked. For years we camped. Then one year, 2012, it happened. We bought ten off-grid acres. Oh yeah, game on! The improvements began. The knowledge of the area only deepened. So did the love. And dreams were more than hatched, they were realized. Welcome to Basecamp 37°. That’s our story, we’d love to hear yours.
