Perfect place to disconnect yourself from the city. Better if you rent both sites, as you can have de whole camping area for your group.

A little difficult to find the place but Gordon has an explanation for that and is completely understandable.

I will definitely come back.

I had fun, there was firewood ready to use, the lake took about 2 minutes to walk to, very peaceful.

You're close enough to the road that you hear it, but it wasn't too loud. It's about a 40 seconds walk from the parking into the trees.

The yellow jackets were ferocious although that's not the site's fault

Pros:
•We stayed at site two, the larger of the spots, with plenty of extra space.
•It was well maintained.
•Close to town
• Very quite area for camping without the restrictions of a traditional campground.

Cons:
•Site 2 is down wind from outhouse, outhouse very unclean
•Infested with Ground wasps (not fun when you're allergic)
•Difficult to get car in the parking spot, bottomed it out

Overall, it was an enjoyable spot. Very easy to put back to natural when leaving site. Saw some wildlife at night (deer). Despite leaving a day early (due to wasps) we look forward to returning again, potentially in the winter.

Thank you for the honest feedback Hailey. We do our best to keep the site in good order. I wish that I was made aware of the deficiencies as soon as you noticed them and I could have made your stay more enjoyable. All the best.

What a complete gem of a campsite. It was very clean, peaceful and only a few minutes walk to the beach. My boys loved exploring the 20 acres of land. Gordon was a fabulous host and had zero issues answering all of my annoying questions. We will be back forsure!

My friends and I had an amazing camping experience at Aspen Grove! Gordon was so helpful and enthusiastic about sharing his knowledge of the camp site! We were lucky enough watch a meteor shower in such a great location thanks to him.
The area was nice and secluded, but close enough to town that you could get anything you needed.
Definitely can’t wait to come back!!

I had a wonderful stay on Gordon’s property! Its well forested and very private, even between the two sites. It was a very pretty spot to go paddle boarding, lots of people were out in their boats but it wasn’t hard paddling at all. I saw lots of wildlife, mostly birds, but also some deer families and bats at night! Gordon was a great host, super friendly and he really knows the area if you’re ever looking for stuff to do. It was pretty hot and smoky the weekend I was there or I probably would have explored more. I will definitely come back and stay again!

What a great space. Steps from the lake and a cute little town with all the shops. Perfect for Vanlife, people traveling or even a great space to get out of the city. Highly recomend this place. Clean, quiet and very safe. It was a pleasure to stay and i will def stay again.
