The listed sites here are accessible by car, but if remote/hike in is more your style, we have those, too - just ask! Or try out our tree house camp experience: a platform built into the trees with provided 8 person tent secured to the base (contact us to reserve/book the tree house. Rental is $45/night). We also have a large group site. Firewood is provided on site - please do not bring in your own. We have marked trails, or forge your our path! The campgrounds are a short jaunt from our vineyard. At the vineyard is our event center with B & B lodging. Campers are welcome to use the modern facilities at the event center. Kaibos are located at the primitive tent campground. Guests are welcome to enjoy the pond (kayaks provided, catch & release fishing) and play area. There are acres of woodlands to explore with ample opportunity for wildlife watching. We are a short drive to a boat launch river access, or walk to the river from our place! Firewood and non potable water is provided for campers.

Nicole’s place was perfect. The photos don’t do it justice. Clean, private, plenty of wood, no bugs. Having the event center to clean up before we left was awesome. The kids loved all the animals on the property. Nicole was welcoming and communicated great. Best camping spot so far on Hipcamp.

Beautiful and secluded is the perfect description. The campsite is a bit away from their main event venue on some gravel roads but easily navigated with my Prius which has fairly low clearance. The bathroom and shower was great. I enjoyed a campfire which was nice since my home state has bans in place due to wildfires.

The property is absolutely gorgeous. Between the pond, the vineyard, the nearby public forest, and the sprawling meadows, it is stunning and peaceful. The hosts are also very kind and seem genuinely interested in making sure you have a good time, and the facilities are very nice. All around an amazing stay that I’d highly recommend.

This is the spot to stop if you're driving through the state. My partner and I stayed over the 4th of July weekend and the spot was just a welcome respite from the road.

Very lovely property to walk around, we certainly took advantage of the kayaks on the small body of water that is on the land.

Nicole was lovely and communicative. Overall, a memorable short stay!
