Joe's farm is beautiful. The camping site is located in a very private spot, so it would be only you and your family (friends). Joe was very helpful and responded quickly to texts if we needed anything or had a question. Thank you!

Joe and Rhonda were great hosts. They were super friendly and I highly recommend going on the goat walk. The kids had a ton of fun and I learned a lot about the different plants and trees on the farm. Super cool stay.

I had a FANTASTIC experience here! The site was tranquil, secluded, well maintained and lovely. The land is a certified bee sanctuary (which does NOT mean I was swarmed by bees haha), featuring lush meadows of native flowers and a gorgeous old growth forest, which I had free reign to ramble through. I camped next to an open field that was ideal for star gazing. Joe was friendly and accommodating. I knew he was available if I needed anything, but he also respected my privacy as I enjoyed a peaceful evening. Pro tip: ask Joe about his homemade apple chips, made from apples in the orchard just down the path from where I was camping. They’re delicious! I very much recommend this spot for anyone traveling through the area!

Thanks so much, Joe! Im on the road a lot with my music and look forward to staying there again when next I’m passing through.

What a perfect spot to camp! Joe was an awesome host and was so flexible and friendly and made our stay even more memorable with his goats and great chat! We felt like we were miles away from everybody while being close to everything we needed!

Our second trip back to visit Joe's beautiful meadows at Bee Sanctuary was as good as the first, and guarantees many future camping weekends, as well.

Joe went out of his way to bring us dry firewood (as there'd been rain in the area the night before our arrival), and generously offered us some summer squash from his garden for our dinner.

The hospitality, privacy, and space for our dog to be her wild self were much appreciated! Thanks again, see you next time!
