Our minimalist sites are set in the hilly woods backed up to a number of trails great for hiking or mountain biking!

2 forest sites are close in proximity, perfect for a larger group! (Sites 1 & 2)

1 clearing site is about 100 feet down a trail. (Site 3)

You are not able to park right next to the sites themselves, it's about a 50 foot walk from car to site.

Negatives:
Lots of “junk” on the property, including 10 broken down cars, two broken down fork lifts, piles of metal and scrap throughout.

Campsites are not on level ground, so expect everyone rolling throughout the night. It’s not that extreme of an angle, but definitely noticeable.

There is a pond but we didn’t visit it as the owners advised not to “linger” at the pond for too long due to owners from a nearby house. Don’t know if the pond is stocked for fishing.

We rented both campsites, so it was perfect for our 3 adults and 4 kids. However, the campsites were close together (maybe 20 feet apart), so I’d imagine it could be uncomfortable if it was two separate bookings.

Positives:
Great owners! They were attentive, very nice, responsive, and informative. They sent a video and detailed message to show how to get to the campsite ahead of time that was very helpful.

Two well-situated camp sites in the woods and away from the main property. Once set up, it was like you were in a private woods. Very nice location.

Owners provided wood for fire pits in the campsites; but you need a hatchet to cut the wood up. We used wood from a pile of palettes nearby.

Trails nearby for hiking. We didn’t go too far but it seems like they were pretty extensive.

Our stay was so fun. We were greeted by a friendly face, shown around the property, and enjoyed peace and quiet our whole stay. My 4yo son loved the play equipment, and enjoyed meeting some kids and friendly pups at one point during our stay. We did some exploring on nearby paths; and when we got too hot from the sun, we enjoyed the cool breeze under the cover of the trees.
We will most certainly be using this campsite again.

My dog and I had a wonderful time here! The site was great with a fire pit and nice spot for a tent right in the middle of the woods. Colleen and her husband were awesome and helped me get set up when I arrived (and their two dogs are so cute!). They were even a huge help when my dog broke free in the night and they helped me track him down and get him back on a leash. I definitely recommend this place for anyone looking for a nice camping getaway!

We had a wonderful weekend! The hosts were lovely and met us at check-in to tell us a little bit about their beautiful property. It was quiet and very peaceful. We would definitely stay there again.
