Keeping Up With The Community | Episode 15 - Deer Creek Mountain Camp

​Tucked away in Friendship Ranch in Bailey is a mountain oasis known as Deer Creek Mountain Camp.  With a motto like, "Intentionally Simple," I just had to go see what they're all about.  You don't have to go far to find blissful mountain camping - it's right here in your backyard.

Our mission is to provide a mountain experience that's intentionally simple for families and groups. We don't have all the highly-programmed activities -- we don't want those things.  We want this to be a retreat, a mountain oasis, where people can relax and enjoy.

by Brent Kroeker, Owner of Deer Creek Mountain Camp
