Very relaxing.
We loved the campsite, except for the wind on that particular weekend. Very peaceful. Just wish Hipcamp didn’t take so much booking fee. $66 fir3 days was great value for 2 people. Invoice came to $78. Wiki camps is free booking coz we can phone the owners direct. Hipcamp is double dipping from both the camper and the farmer/owner.
