Great camp spot
Fantastic private spot. Easy drive to get to. Owner, Chris, is a wonderful host and made sure we had everything we needed, including fire wood and farm fresh eggs! Plenty of room for our 19’ travel trailer. We found a level spot and put out the awning and chairs and relaxed. Fire pit and picnic table added to the comfort
Amazing spot at site 2!
Had a great time off the grid weekends camping here. (Literally. We had no device at the site except to maybe get a text out. It was great.) Chris was a fantastic host. Answered all my questions before booking and was easy to communicate with. He even brought us more wood on day 2 and split it for us! And had fresh farm eggs we went home with. Yum!
We stayed on site 2 which is just behind a corn field nestled into a grass alcove at the wood line. You feel like you are completely alone. Very private. And no light pollution so you can see all the stars! The site was shaded for all but a few hours midday. That made for some wet grass in the morning, though we didn’t mind since it kept us cool and the bit of sun dried things out. The site was very large and would accommodate a bunch of tents and a few cars for sure. We had a truck, trailer, car and two tents with so much room to spare. The corn field was cool to explore and we brought our ATV to ride around the site and nearby. There was no outhouse or anything, but with the remote nature of this site, you didn’t need it.
Site 3 was just up a hill next to us. No one camped while we were there, but there were plenty of trees/brush to block between sites so you wouldn’t have seen or heard each other anyway. That site was much smaller than ours and would be better for a couple or a small family with a tent or two max.
Would definitely recommend Chris’ place! It is a gem!
Chris was great from the second I pulled onto the property. He was friendly and helpful, and made every effort to ensure I had a safe and enjoyable trip. The grounds are gorgeous and peaceful. It was the perfect place to unplug for a night away from the city!
Chris was a great host! He greeted us at the site, was super friendly, and even gave us a dozen fresh eggs! The camping spot was far from the road so you felt completely secluded and had great views of the night sky. Our dogs were able to explore without worrying about cars or other people. There was also a lot of great hiking and swimming options within a short drive!
Chris was very helpful, texted me the day before to let me know the address and better direction. He showed me my spot which had firewood, kindling, and a couple fire starters waiting.
Will be back again!
Clean, convenient and peaceful
Our campsite was just off the road through a field up to a mowed clearing on the edge of the woods. The ground was quite even and we were supplied with dry firewood, kindling and starter to set us off right. We stayed over memorial day weekend while some friends stayed at a cabin at Indian Bear Lodge. This site is very close to the resort and winery there (10-15min). We also went up to Cuyahoga Valley National Park from this site one day, and drove through Tappan Lake area on the way to and from home. Two really great parks both about 1.5 hrs from camp. This is a perfect spot to spend a long weekend in eastern Ohio.
Chris readily accepted my reservation on very short notice, and graciously provided plenty of firewood. He was kind and helpful, and I appreciated everything he did. I would certainly recommend a stay here, the view of the stars was unforgettable, and the campsite clean and secluded.
A private, very large campsite
Chris was a wonderful host! He truly cares about providing campers with the best possible experience and you really can't beat that kind of hospitality. He was kind enough to bring us more wood on the second day when we had already used up most of what he originally provided - he was always quick to respond and communication was top notch. He is just getting started with hosting so he has a ton of plans for the sites which was exciting to learn, including paving out some hiking trails on his property which we felt was really the only thing missing. He was also open to feedback and making sure he was providing the best possible stay. The site we stayed at (#3) was by far the largest site. It's HUGE so it was nice to have the space to spread out (we had two tents and one car but you could easily fit a large, or several large groups here). We were hopeful about being able to let our dog off-leash but after learning how close you are to the main road, and that it was deer hunting season, we decided to keep him on a leash for his safety. Just something to consider if camping with pets. You really do get tons of privacy though which was the best part of our stay.
Totally unrelated to Chris and his property, there were some concerning political signs directly across the campsite that made us a bit nervous upon arrival. Once we learned that you cannot see that property from the site, and with how welcoming Chris was, it ended up being a very relaxing weekend getaway in the woods.
