According to the posting under amenities campers were to have access to potable water, kitchen, picnic tables, and garbage bins. These amenities are not available! In addition the posting shows pictures of a lake that make it seem like the lake is located on the property not miles away. This is deceptive and should be considered false advertising. The site had a few piles of mulch dumped for the camper to have to spread to put their tent on. And the general area was not well-kept. We found the camp ground so undesirable and uncomfortable that we left after only one night.

Great location for this tent site. Little bit noisy at night thought since there is a train coming back every hour and you can hear it loud and clear.

Did not feel safe

We would not suggest staying here. We did not feel safe. Inappropriate gun shots with no explanation. We left in the middle of the night. It was a pretty awful experience.

Response from Chaz, the Host, on August 8th, 2020

Sorry to hear that your experience was not as expected. We had a bear in camp raiding food that was left out. We did our best to warn campers and that we would be in bear patrol and possibly shooting a warning shot to scare the bear off. I apologize that you didn’t get that message. We have extensive gun safety protocol. Sorry again for your below par experience.
