Our tent sites are available for larger groups that have rented "Yurt in the Pines" and need additional space for members of the party. 

Do you remember seeing the night sky full of stars and so close it felt as if you could reach up and touch them? Ever catch a glimpse of an owl silently hunting in the trees or try to identify different bird songs? 

In our busy lives, often surrounded by noisy traffic or lights everywhere blocking out the night sky, we often miss that sense of being part of nature that is all around us. Being here, immersed in nature, you'll likely feel your body slough off the tension that all the hustle and bustle have built up in you and re-connect yourself with the natural world and you will come alive again and be refreshed in ways you might never have imagined. 

Our quiet campsites are a 2 to 4 minute walk from the main house and you will have  privacy surrounded by evergreens.

A community fire ring and  picnic table are included. A screened patio tent, a cookstove, and a solar shower bag for quick cleanup may be available upon request.

Bob and Roxanne are wonderful and their campsites are beautiful. Since we were the only ones there for the night, we were able to stay in the yurt site and Bob graciously brought us a mattress when we couldn’t get our air mattress to blow up. We got a tour around the property when we arrived, including the new greenhouse where tomatoes and lettuce are growing. For my husband, an aspiring gardener, it was really fun to get some tips for his tomatoes. The campsite was quiet, clean, and we had drinking and usable water available, along with a screen porch of sorts for the bugs and a really cool manhole cover fire pit. The outhouse was clean and worked great. The beautiful pines outlined our site and we absolutely loved it. We will definitely go back!!

My family and I had a lovely time staying at the Yurt in the pines. My husband and two toddlers stayed in the yurt while my two teenagers pitched a tent right next to us. The property is beautiful with a big open meadow area next to the yurt. My kids loved all the space to hike and explore wildlife. Lots of little trails to explore. The outhouse was a short walk from the Yurt, and it was extremely clean and very well kept. Bob and Roxanne were so kind and accommodating to us. We will definitely be back!

We had a wonderful time here! The site was well maintained, scenic, and private with touches of whimsy throughout. We typically camp in more secluded, primitive sites, so we were pleasantly surprised by the ease and hospitality provided here. Bob and Roxanne were gracious, communicative hosts who thought of everything—fresh water, firewood, warm coals when we arrived, a map of the property, and the nicest outhouse I've ever been in.

We absolutely would recommend this site, especially to campers looking for a spacious campground for family/friends. There's plenty of space for multiple tents and on-site trails offer room to safely roam for young children. Though we camped, they also have a yurt which looked quite cozy. I would especially recommend this site to those looking to introduce non-campers into the outdoors—it's an easy getaway maintained by lovely people.
