Rachel has a beautiful piece of property, and they were very welcoming hosts! We had a lovely, quiet camp spot in which stars were abundant at night. Great price. Recommend!!

Being that I had never left the east coast and I was an inexperienced camper, Rachel and her camp couldn’t have been more perfect! She was super nice and hospitable and the land is beautiful.

The area is beautiful and fairly remote. Rachel and her family are great! They are respectful of giving you space but are also very friendly and kind. Would absolutely recommend.

We loved our stay at High Prairie. The view was so beautiful and Rachel was a kind, friendly host. We had plenty of open land to enjoy the games we brought for family time (corn hole, soccer, kites, etc.) and an open sky for star-gazing (sadly the weather was not cooperative for us, but it was still fun). Rachel and her husband are building their homestead there and she mentioned that they also plan to build out their campsites with more amenities which will be fantastic when it's all done. Right now, it's pretty barebones with just a table and a rock-ring fire pit, but it worked great for what we were seeking: a quiet place to see the night sky.

We did have a couple disappointments that others might want to be aware of as they book. 1) In our emailing back and forth prior to booking, we were told that we'd have the site further from the driveway (there are two campsites on the property), but when we got there, that site had been taken by another group. We were told we could move once they left, but I wasn't about to take our whole set up down and set it up again. It wasn't a huge deal, it's not like the driveway is busy, but I think it would be more helpful to be very clear about what site is where and which one you're booking and hold people to that. 2) The owners have two dogs that are quite friendly. I suppose this would be fine for people who love dogs, but we're not dog people and this was a source of frustration for us. In fact, on the first morning, as I was standing up in our tent looking out at the view, the bigger dog came tearing around the corner and when she saw me she jumped/lunged on our tent wall/window and tore two holes in it with her front paws. I'm sure if you're a dog-friendly camper, having dogs running around wouldn't be a big deal, but I would have preferred to have the dogs tied up and kept away from us.

Lastly, a few more things campers might want to be aware of: - Rachel said we could feel free to take a peek at their chickens and ducks, which our son loved. We really appreciated Rachel's open, friendly outlook to renting out and sharing her space.
- There is no grate for cooking over the fire, so we just brought a small propane burner for cooking food and heating water.
- You'll need to bring in your own water and toilet.
- There is a rooster on the property who begins to crow around 4:30 a.m., so be sure you bring your earplugs if you're a light sleeper.
- There are no trees, so it's quite hot when the sun's out. If you need shade, be sure to bring a canopy.
- They run a generator in the evening until about 10:30/11:00 p.m. It's not super loud, but just keep that in mind if you're wanting complete silence.

We took a short hike up the dirt road. This is our site from the hill. Simple campsite--fire ring and a place for a tent. Perfect!Gorgeous skies at sunset.Seriously such a beautiful view.

Very happy we found this location. Great communication from the host, and site was more than what we expected. The views are beautiful! Our 1st trip not being in the woods and could not complain a bit. The night sky, and views all around were so relaxing. Not sure is if was just the weekend weather, but be prepared to stake everything down. Very windy!!! Easy to find, and will absolutely be returning.
