Jess and Doreen have an amazing space for camping! Its a peaceful and beautiful property with picnic tables and fire pits and if you camp out on the weekend while they have one of their festivals going on you have plenty of activities to do! From the petting zoo to candle making to tomahawk throwing and sling shooting paintballs....tons of activities! Great place to take the family to camp. I highly recommend Fort Cross Camping!

The camp hosts Doreen and Jesse are really nice people. When we arrived they showed us where the camping area was and gave us some basic info and pretty much left us to ourselves. We found the camping area to be fine for our group, we had a couple of trailers and a couple of tents. The space was big enough for us to have a large common area where we could line up our tables to enjoy large meals together and sit around a camp fire. The children in our group enjoyed exploring and playing in our camping area and some of the other surrounding areas of the property. The hosts do offer activities (archery, petting zoo, candle making + more) which is available to the public so you will see foot traffic but it didn't bother us at all (plus we were informed ahead of time). The camping area has a nearby porta-potty and outside sink for use. People with RV's or trailers who need to connect to electrical should contact the hosts ahead of time to ask about status. For our group the electrical wasn't able to handle the load from the trailers, not a big deal, one of us used a generator. Our group enjoyed our camping trip and spending time together.

Me and my 2 children came for 1 day and 1 night. I felt incredibly safe and my kids could not stop talking about how much fun they were having. We participated in all of the activities and saw all of the animals. It is truly a unique experience that we have to do again! The hosts were incredibly kind and gracious. All 3 of us recommend!

Sites and activities are ran by owner Jessie and wife who are very nice and informative. Very few camp site, but yon are able to still visit and participate in activities without camping over night. There is one porter potty and we never had an issue waiting. Showers coming soon! Would definitely recommend this place, especially if you have little explorers

Doreen and Jesse were great hosts. Our group enjoyed all of the activities. There were several camping spots to pick from with shade and picnic tables. Jesse checked in on us a couple times to show us a few activities and check to see if we needed anything, but we able to take our time and participate when most convenient. We felt very safe and didn't worry about the small kids running around because the campsites were well kept. We were near the community fire pit which was perfect for our group. I would recommend Fort Cross to anyone looking for a fun camping experience.
