We absolutely loved camping at Natural Gathering Grounds! We wish we could have stayed another night. It was so quiet and peaceful. We were able to pick any campsite we wanted. The campsites are big and most are shaded. The grounds are very well maintained and beautiful and the bathhouse was very clean. The host Angela was so nice and gave us a tour on the golf cart. The animals are so fun. The goats ate our hamburger buns and English muffins which we thought was hilarious! Not a big deal at all-we enjoyed the laugh! Angela and her husband were so kind and went to the store and got us more buns and muffins which they did not need to do. I will be recommending Natural Gathering Grounds to friends and we will for sure be back!
Family camping experience!
Tent camping at Natural Gatherings was such a fantastic family experience! The hosts are so nice and hospitable. Our children ages 7, 4, and 2 completely enjoyed playing with the chickens and goats on the premises! The sites were clean and they even had wood (logs) to buy for the last minute camper. Over all, it was a great time and I’d highly recommend this location for anyone! We’ll definitely be coming back. Oh, and they have an awesome history serving in our US military.
Great camping spot
I really enjoyed my family's stay at Natural Gathering Grounds! The lakes nearby are only for boating, swimming is only allowed in the river that is maybe a mile walk! The path is well maintained, and there are benches and shaded areas if you need a break! The owners were nice and offered a ride a couple of times, which was much appreciated! The bathouse was super clean, and cute.
There were even a few tree swings around which my son loved playing on!
They had goats roaming around that were super cute!
Overall would definitely stay again, though make sure you take most of what you need, the closest store is kinda far!
Definitely the best campground in this area. Campsites are clean, bathrooms and showers are clean the ground keepers are super nice.
Enjoyed the walk down to the beach.
We’ll be back for sure.
