If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
I enjoyed my farm camping experience. Great hosts and the site is convenient to the the interstate and just west of Indianapolis. My small camper was provided power via extension cord and water was a few steps from my site. Would recommend and would definitely stay again.
Fun on the farm.
We had a great time at the site. It was spacious and beautiful. My wife loved being able to see the horses and walk on the different trails. The firepit was set up for us and we had ample privacy as we watched the stars each night. The only problem we had was the taste of the water, but everythinf else was perfect.
PS we visited Danville ans Shades State Park during our stay and they were wonderful.
