Great host - great tent camp!
Scott was an awesome host and has a great property. Our site was secluded, easily accessible and perfect for a car camp. The lake is a blast - we caught a few bass and it’s very serene.
The elk are very impressive creatures! Overall, this was an awesome weekend.
What an awesome property! Scott showed us around the farm which we really enjoyed learning all about the Elk he had. Where we camped was beautiful. I would highly recommend this stay!
Scott is a great host. Seeing/hearing the Elk with Scott is such a unique experience and something you cannot get at any other camp site. We even got to pet one of them. We stayed at site 1 which overlooks the creek and has great flat ground for campsite. Plenty of privacy from other sites. Highly recommend!
Scott was incredibly accommodating. The campsite we stayed at (2) was giant and provided a ton of shade seclusion. The area was beautiful and it was peaceful listening to the elk as the sun went down.
Camping with elk!
We had so much fun tent camping on Scott’s land. He was extremely welcoming and helpful. He took is for a tour of the elk and was very patient when answering all of our questions! He let us choose the campsite and made sure we had everything we needed. We also got to go on the row boat on the lake! It was so pretty and peaceful!
I camped on the bank of the creek. Being single and camping alone, I felt very safe. It is primitive camping but I was very well prepared which made my stay more enjoyable. It was everything I was looking for. I wish I would have brought a kayak to paddle the beautiful lake. Scott is a great host. Do not pass up the opportunity to camp here.*****
2 boys who love the outdoors!
Site number 1 by far met our expectations. The land was clear, private, peaceful, and tranquil by the creek. My boys loved walking through creek with their nets catching the crayfish! We had so much fun fishing off the boat in the pond, even though dad was the only one who caught a fish! We saw beavers swimming around in the other pond. And of course the main highlight was walking along side the elk pasture. You have to see it in person to believe how big they are! We had so much fun during the day, and relaxed by the fire at night. It was so cool to hear the elk bugle too! Scott was very responsive, friendly, understanding, fair and easy to work with! We will definitely be back, can not wait until next time!
