About Julia Jones

We have enjoyed this property for years!. We wanted to extend the experience to other family's and groups that enjoy the outdoors and nature. We have enjoyed family reunions and gatherings on this property.

Julia Jones purchased this estate in 2003

Why Julia Jones chose Bear Basin Estates

This property is so perfectly located just two miles from McCall. It offers a quiet wooded experience with the convenience of town, shops, restaurants, bike paths, and beautiful Payette Lake.

What makes this estate unique

We enjoy the ample wild life and the access to Bear Basin Rd, mountain biking and hiking.

Great Place

  • 4 of 5

This was perfect for our group close enough to town but yet outdoor feel.

Plenty of wildlife around camp in the evenings to enjoy.

Youth Camp

  • 4 of 5

The camp met all our needs. Camp host was hospitable and met all our requests. With 40 people the porta potties got a little ripe but to be expected. Close to McCall and the Lake. Enjoyed our time. Thanks

Great for large groups

  • 5 of 5

This was for our church camping trip. This property was perfect for what we needed. It was secluded enough to feel like we were our own group out in the woods. And yet we were so close to town and the beach. I would suggest this private campground to anyone.
