Michael and his property was great. He met us when we got there. Provided firewood and some tiki torches. He also let me bring my utility quad to take the kids on little rides around his property, which has some nice easy trails on. Fishing was great. We all caught a variety of species and sizes. And it was nice and quiet in the evening. We will definitely be going back. He is a great host.

Wife and I had a great time at Borderline! Mike and Patty are great hosts. Tons of stuff to do in the area, or a great place to sit around and relax. Look forward to camping there again.

Michael seemed like a great host, however the electric on this property could not support our 30 amp pop up with A/C. It was about 91 degrees and we couldn’t stay without electric. We left after only 1.5 hours. I really wanted to swim in that pond tho!!!

I really enjoyed my stay I wish I had booked longer than an overnight. I got lucky and had the place pretty much to myself. The weather was perfect and it was a full moon too. The swimming hole aka Pap’s Beach is spring fed and was great to hang out. I had the place to myself so that added to the peacefulness. Michael is an accommodating host and an interesting man to talk to.

Micheal’s place was as beautiful as everyone describes it. We had a fun weekend stay there. Enjoyed the beautiful pond and got to meet his lovely grand daughters as well. My dogs ran around and had fun exploring the place. Unfortunately we couldn’t use the restroom in the trailer as it was broke, rest assured - we will definitely be back again to visit this peaceful oasis. Michael was very prompt in communication.

Michael was extremely helpful and accommodating. I was just stopping through for a night, but he made sure I had everything I needed including water, firewood, and even supplied tiki torches. I really enjoyed the much needed dip in the swimming pond after a long day driving. Thanks for everything!

Michael was a great host and showed us to our site. We had one of the sites by the pond with access to the dock. There was one other camper across the pond so it was very quite, perfect for our first hip camp experience.
