Pull off the blacktop onto the grassy drive running through the field and forest. The site is private, but just minutes from lots of local culture and recreation. 

The clearing is right off of the road, is about half an acre, and is surrounded by forest.  The campsites are approximately 30 ft long and 20 ft deep. There are two sites to choose from, but we are only taking one booking at a time. So, you'll have the area to yourself. Set up wherever fits you best!

The fire pit is provided with one or two nights of wood depending on how much you burn. Sites have access to trash and water (Apr-Oct).  All other amenities and services must be contained within your camping system. All human waste must be contained within your system and packed out.

We are right next door if you need anything!

Was here 2 years in a row at the same time in the fall and loved it. Beautiful spot in the woods close to Saugatuck, Douglas, and Fennville. Aaron is so accommodating and attentive to making sure your stay is the best it can be. Would recommend this for those who want to explore the area and experience ‘pure michigan’.

The site was just as advertised, and Aaron responded quickly to our request. He met us to make sure we had everything we needed, and we had a nice, quiet night.

Aaron helped us in a pinch and was available when we needed a camp site towards the end of a night. His site was beautiful, the directions were clear, and he was friendly throughout the whole process. I would definitely stay here again. We did tent camp here and let Aaron know beforehand, but he just let us know where the closest bathrooms were in case we needed them. Excellent stay overall!

Amazing location for visiting Saugatuck, Douglas, and Fennville. Aaron was very friendly and helpful. Not quite as secluded as I was hoping, but it was pretty quiet and you can't beat the price. My dogs enjoyed the many squirrels. I appreciated the tap more than I had expected. I actually washed my dishes well! Would definitely return.

A phenomenal spot. Host was fabulous and very helpful. So close to downtown area and still feels secluded. I’d come back and hope to soon!

Such a peaceful experience close to Saugatuck & Douglas and completely private. We were able to view the stars on clear nights and even pick some blackberries. We will definitely come back.

Aaron was a great host - he came to meet us and answered any questions we had. The site was clean, level and great for our sprinter van. The shade in the evening was lovely for cooling the van down. The location was great with easy access to Douglas, Saugatuck and Fennville by bike or driving. Hope to return!
