First time experience with this app
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!
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.
Definition of peaceful!
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.
