4 acres with scattered hickory and oak trees with a small fruit orchard in front of an acre size pond. Plenty of space to have a private camp site and enjoy the sounds of nature. Have a sit by the pond or relax in the shade. The evening could be spent grilling or sitting around the fire ring. Perfect for travelers just wishing for a place to stay while an event is in town or just a place to rest their head on the way through. 16 mies from SIUE and Edwardsvile 45 minutes from most of St. Louis. Far enough out in the country but close enough to the city to not miss out on the fun.

Karmen and her dad, Ron were super! Ron helped us find the site and brought the fire wood to our site for us. The location is super quiet and a great place to stay!

We booked this site super last minute & arrived really late at night, but Karmen and Ron were SO helpful! They quickly responded to my messages and met us outside when we got there even though it was so late! The property was beautiful & peaceful and there was plenty of flat ground to set up camp. We were able to drive our car right up to the site and Ron was so helpful & friendly!! Would absolutely stay again!!!

Peaceful spot by the pond, next closest site wasn’t even visible to us through the trees so it didn’t feel as crowded as most “official” campgrounds. Ron was very helpful, one of our tent poles was broken and he helped us with a temporary fix.

Such a lovely property to camp on. Karmen and Ron were very friendly and helpful. They were very communicative which I appreciated and it was very easy to find the place with their directions. They even provided a flashlight for me to borrow when asked. It was also very nice to be able to use the shower and toilet in their home. It felt like camping but with the ammenities of being able to wash and clean yourself in a proper restroom. Really grateful for their hospitality.
