Being novice campers, this site was perfect for us. It might not be rural or private enough for people looking to really be in the woods. You can see houses around you on all sides. But the site is thickly wooded and my daughters and I felt very safe and just secluded enough. Having the hose and the extension cord hook up made the weekend run much smoother too. The lake is absolutely beautiful and peaceful and serene even on Labor Day weekend. And while the property is not right on the lake, the walk to the boat launch is very easy and quick. I was glad we brought along our wagon for easy float transport! The beaches are great and a very quick drive. This is a great site if you’re looking for an easy weekend getaway at a stunning lake!
The mentioned wooded lot is in between private gardens from several houses around and opposite. It felt very weird/not private to camp there (although you are a bit hidden within the trees). Toilet and shower are 1/2 a mile away. I think you cannot consider that as a site with toilet. (But it is mentioned in the description to be fair). Exactly enough space for two small tents. If it's on your route and you are looking for a cheap spot it might suffice...
A saturday night of camping
My husband and I had fun tent camping for a night at Todd's place. For us, this site was 20 min from our home which greatly added to it's appeal, since we didn't want a long trip. Todd's site is rustic and fairly secluded, although you can see other houses. There is a nice size campfire ring and small building which has citronella candles, chairs and other helpful items. There is also a water hose and electrical wire, way back in the woods, if you like water and need electrical hook up. A nice feature of this site is that it includes a beach pass to Amston Lake so you can go down and enjoy the beach area, which we did around sunset.
