What a beautiful and peaceful spot! It’s a good distance away from the main highway so you can’t hear any traffic. The horses roaming the property came to visit me in the evening. They also sell farm eggs which I was excited to get.
Quiet and peaceful
If you are like me and love quiet peaceful privacy this is the place. Very nice and attentive hosts. Road a little bumpy but my truck and trailer made it just fine. Fell asleep to birds and woke up to birds. There are some benches and a picnic table, outhouse, and 2 120 outlets and something that I did not recognize (a 50 amp plug maybe).
Book this one, you will love it!
Amazing! Host greeted us and made us feel welcome. They know the area very well and can make recommendations, but you don't need to leave the property. Great for a romantic weekend or to get kids nature access in a safe place. Tons of foliage and bird watching with fishing right there. Horses came up to us the first evening and when we were leaving. It's like they came to say hi and bye. All the horses were friendly and liked to be petted. We were there for a full moon, so the sky was outstanding. I highly recommend this place b/c the owners have done a great job making a camp experience, but with nice amenities like a port o potty. You can walk and walk and walk and keep seeing new things. Simply one of the best Hipcamp experiences we have had. Great for campers of all ages and intensity level.
Awesome tent camping!
Such an awesome stay, Samantha was an excellent host and made sure we had everything we needed. Grounds were clean and neat. Cleanest outhouse I’ve ever seen.
Kids had a blast, the horses came up to us and we’re super friendly. Had a cool little place the kids could play on tire hills, and farm playground, and of course fishing in the bass tank!
We will definitely be back. Thank you Samantha!!
Had pretty decent cell service on AT&T and Verizon (both iPhones) was able to stream music and FaceTime.
State parks can be hit or miss in terms of a quiet, peaceful relaxing day or night so we tend to avoid them more and more due to loud, obnoxious campers. Big Stars delivered as promised! Quiet, private and great stars! We'll be back!
We had a great time. So many lovely animals and it is a very open space with great views. The host were kind and friendly. Electricity is also provided via a regular outlet and an RV connection. The porta potty was clean and stocked. The water provided was more than enough. All around great experience.
