Our experience with Camping with Rescue Animals was nothing short of amazing. The property is easy to get and once you are in, you feel in a whole new world. Here the animals get to freely roam and live a happy easy going life. There are many spots where you can pitch your tent, we chose to set up ours underneath the big tree. There's good room for parking if you want to sleep in your car or if you need to park your RV. It was quite the experience coming into an environment where animals are free to do as they wish and hang out with them and live there next to them during our time here. Ilana does a great job of making a difference with her foundation 2 The Rescue Animal Sanctuary. Make sure you come check out this place at some point and experience these beautiful animals.

Staying with Ilana was the highlight of my trip to the US (From Australia). Not only was the property amazing - full of all different beautiful rescued animals which made the trip so enjoyable, interesting and rewarding but Ilana and Karens hospitality to me was above and beyond anything I was expecting. From enjoying cocktails and wine out with the animals, to sharing a memorial day lunch together, to Ilana helping me sort out some issues I was having with my car. I cannot recommend this place enough. Your money will be going to a REALLY good thing, Ilanas work with these animals is amazing and so very important. I find myself deeply saddened to leave here today (after extending my stay an extra 3 nights because I couldn't bring myself to leave!!)

Ilana, your home has felt like a home away from home with me and refuge when I was going through a rough time in my trip. For that I thank you SO much! I can't wait to see what is to come of 2 The Rescue and the work that you do and I can't wait to come back next time for a visit (and wine).

Ilana is an amazing host! She immediately made us feel welcome and even allowed us to have hands on experiences with her animals. Would highly recommend for any animal lovers.

Camping at Ilana'a place with the rescue animals was an incredible experience. Her property is peaceful and serene, and almost magical. The animals are all super friendly and really fun to hang out with. Ilana is welcoming, friendly, and really interesting to talk to. We'll definitely return in the future and I highly recommend staying here.

Visiting here was one of the most amazing and for filling experiences I have had to date. I was able to take my family including my one-year-old daughter here over the Father’s Day.

There is so much love and compassion here and it is truly inspiring! We cannot wait to return again and see all of our beautiful friends and our favorite host! I feel like we have made lifelong friends and opened our family up to a whole new way of thinking.
We miss everyone already! You are truly missing out if you do not experience this wonderland. Truly a life-changing experience.

2 the Rescue Animal Sanctuary was truly amazing! It was more than we could have asked for and the host was the sweetest woman in the world. She opened her animals and home to us and our daughter and it was one of the best camping experiences I have ever had. We were even given farm fresh eggs to take home with us!

My nine-year-old nephew and I had a great time camping at 2 The Rescue. It was so fun to see all the animals and hear their stories. Ilana was great with Nicholas and let him help with the farm chores, which he loved. The property is super safe and very peaceful. We'll definitely be back!
