Welcome to Fonzo & Marinda's, providing private creekfront camping for small groups.  Access to potable well water, a porta-potty, the Coffee Spot, and a primitive community kitchen.  We have  1,000 feet of quiet creekfront with shade, deer and wild rabbits, a bald eagle's nest with screeching eaglets, and coyotes howling at night. The site and perimeter are mowed but our property will grow wild with wildflowers and tall grass.  The property owner has a gentle old dog who will likely join you a bit,  your pets are not welcome.  

At Fonzo & Marinda's we want you to catch your breath, be inspired, bask in the sun, swing in a hammock, and rest in the quiet of Shoestring Valley.  Set your tents and campers where you like them, the property is yours for your stay.

No Pets & No Loud Parties.  Cannabis Friendly.

* Sundays and Mondays are used for mowing, know this when you book.

*Our well water has iron in it.  We drink it with joy but you might prefer water for drinking if you're not accustomed to well water.  Great for washing and cooking.

My family and I absolutely adored Shannon's campsite. It was a super private and large campsite, with a great kitchen set up and a private creek. This location gave us the opportunity to truly disconnect and enjoy a day at a near by lake. We will definitely be back. 😎💯

Such a relaxing getaway! There were fire pits set up and homemade fire starter as well, went with a small group of friends and had an amazing weekend. The dog was super friendly and came out to visit a few times which everyone loved.
Hope to return again!

I'm so glad you had a wonderful time Miss Ava. I could hardly tell you had been there which makes you the perfect guest as well. Thank you for humoring Gidget, she is turning into quite the host.

Great campsite! If you want to just go and camp this is the place for you. The site comes with tent, firewood, fire pit, kindling, stove, games. Literally anything you need. Except an air mattress and sleeping bag/pillows. Shannon thought of everything else. Campsite also has onsite “clean” porta potty, awesome coffee bar, and a dog and cat. Shannon the host is just amazing. She has made camping as easy as possible and she is super friendly. The views are amazing with a creek running the property. There is an eagle’s nest and other wildlife that make the campsite truly remarkable.

Thank you for the compliments Miss Audrey. I hope that you get to return when the sun is shining and spend a little more time down on Kearney Creek. I'm glad you were able to enjoy our few amenities and the sights and sounds of Shoestring Valley.

My husband and I went to this campsite at the last minute and in spite of that, Shannon had everything prepared for us when we got there. The coffee spot/welcome center is equipped with all the information you will need to get your trip started. This campground has almost everything you need to have an amazing time, including a small kitchen area for grilling. There is a firepit near the little river and it is beautiful and relaxing. There is a view of an eagle's nest with two little baby eaglets! I would recommend this site for anyone who is looking for a great break from the fast-paced day to day. It is just so peaceful there. Would love to return.

Each site has its own bundles of wood, kindling, and fire pit.Fonzo & Marinda's Creekside CampingFonzo & Marinda's Creekside CampingOn site bee homes ❤️
