Little pond oasis
Beth was great at giving light touch check in and check out. The pond was an amazing little oasis to Camp at and I absolutely loved it!

Great first Hipcamp experience!
We had a wonderful time at Songdog Meadows. The site was easy to find and we loved taking a refreshing dip in the pond and taking leisurely walks around the pond, listening to the frogs and taking in the sights and scents of all the foliage. We enjoyed having our own private site and took advantage of being a short 15 drive from an awesome ice cream shop called Scoop. The property was quiet and beautiful.

What a neat place to camp! I enjoyed every minute of it and would love to come back sometime!

First time Hipcamper and Songdog Meadows was such a lovely, peaceful spot! The pond was great, the wildlife (birds, frogs mostly) made a beautiful symphony during our stay. Highly recommend!

Beautiful spot by ponds. A peaceful place to camp.

Awesome, private spot with your own pond! Perfect for our pup who loves to swim and we were able to take our paddle boards out on the water as well! Would definitely stay here again!

The pond is beautiful and a great place to end a long day of hiking. This site is close to Pokagon State Park where I hiked both days. Will definitely return if I am back in the area.

Totally charming campsite. Private and picturesque. Hosts met me when I drove up and gave me directions on where to park which was helpful, since I arrived pretty late. You can drive down through mowed paths to park right up close the campsite, so no walking with gear required. Loved that they left ample firewood for guests to use, such a nice touch.
Be advised that this is right on a beautiful pond, so if you are there in the spring the bullfrogs will be partying all night! Bring earplugs and and be prepared for night sounds.

We enjoyed how tranquil the spot was! A wonderful place to land and plenty of room for our pup to roam.

Nice Quiet Spot
It was a nice and secluded spot back in the corner, but i don't think I was supposed to be parked there. Leaving the next morning I saw the route that Beth had told me to take so the route i did take was merely a walking path. I'm sorry Beth if i screwed things up, but boy was that a good spot though I found!

So lucky to stay at Songdog!
We had a great time at Songdog Meadows over Memorial Day weekend! The weather was lovely, the site was extremely clean and well maintained, all of the accommodations were as described in the listing. The pond was pristine and perfect for swimming. We floated around in tubes all afternoon listening to birds and loved sitting by the fire pit by night. The sunsets were beautiful and there were surprisingly little bugs. The grocery store was just 15 minutes away, which was super convenient for last minute items. And we took some nice long walks along the dirt roads each day!
A few words of caution:
*We arrived after a TON of rain the previous night and the ground stayed very muddy all weekend, so boots were a must to avoid a mud-trashed camper. The rain/soft ground also contributed to a bit of difficulty driving our pop-up down to the pond camping area, but we knew going in this was a try it at our own risk scenario.
*The site is down a dead end road, so it felt pretty private, but there didn’t seem to be a great spot for restroom use out of view of the road or the house. So a bathroom tent or curtain would be a nice thing to bring next time.
*Also, while fairly secluded, we heard lawnmowers constantly from neighboring land, as well as gunshots in the early evening. Not dealbreakers for us and very obviously out of the owners control, but not ideal.
All in all, our family of five and two dogs really enjoyed our time at Songdog Meadows and would happily return! Thanks!

Quiet and beautiful setting
What a great place to spend the night, or even a few days. The pond is serene and a nice place to hang out and recharge. It is a little ways off the highway, but close enough for the through traveler to stay at. We highly recommend Beth’s Hipcamp.

This was an amazing place to stay! Beth was communicative through text and let me arrive late. I did yoga and wrote by the pond in the morning and took a nice swim. It's gorgeous and serene!

Great place with nice pond.

The camp sites were great, the host was friendly, and there was plenty of firewood. Definitely recommend

Beautiful property. I stayed on the hill because the ground was pretty wet. I would love to return when the weather is warmer. But this was convenient to I-80 on which I am driving cross-country.

Chilly and fun
We camped for a few rainy/stormy March days, and we had a great time! The property is very quiet and surrounded by farms. The pond was pretty - probably even more so in the spring or summer. It was easy to find, and we appreciated the gravel driveway to park in. Only issue was the weather, but we knew what we were getting into there. Highly recommend Cahoots Coffee in Angola, too.

I loved this spot. It was so peaceful and lovely camping near the pond on the edge of the woods. I was fortunate to have a beautiful sunset too. I didn’t have the chance to meet Beth, but I had a lovely experience nonetheless and would definitely recommend this spot as a tranquil place to camp.

We were afraid it was going to rain but luckily the weather cooperated. We enjoyed a spectacular sunset, saw a decent number of stars (when it wasn't too cloudy), and made a fire at night. Beth's directions were clear, firewood was provided, and her husband helped guide us when we arrived. I myself would return and I'd recommend Songdog Meadows to others.

Beautifully maintained property! Very quiet and peaceful.

This was my first Hipcamp stay and it was lovely. It was secluded and quiet and the perfect spot to wind down after 10hrs of driving.

Nice and private spot with a responsive and accommodating host! Small camp spot I was able to drive my truck up to right by the fire. Would definitely recommend!
