What an amazing stay! April is a kind and knowledgeable host. Her communication was A+ and she's super hospitable. The property is easy to find, and quite well maintained. We just took a quick 2 night trip in December to get away, and absolutely loved it. On the second day we organized a trail ride with April, again she was super accommodating. The kids were allowed to help groom the horses and get them ready. Then we got some basic instruction and a nice mid morning ride exploring the property. Overall, a very cool place- very safe, we felt fine letting the kids explore the woods and the parkour course by themselves. And it looks like we just scratched the surface. Around the camp you'll find evidence of boy scout projects, and camping classes, all sorts of great activities going back at least 20 years. I can't wait to organize a bigger group event in the spring. We'll absolutely be back. If you're on the fence at all, just book now. You won't regret it.

The campsite was large and lovely, with lots of trees and a big fire ring. April was a kind and generous horse riding teacher. My six year old loved it so much!

This is a fantastic spot for Hipcampers. April owns and operates a small nature camp with multiple activities and amenities. We live in the city of Dallas, and it took us about 1 hour and 15 minutes to get there. It was easy to find. April had multiple campsites available for us and she was totally accommodating. We set up camp, hiked on trails on the property. We could have fished, and we did go horseback riding, which was a huge bonus for my daughter. The composting toilets were clean and made all that a non-issue. Great fire pit. I highly recommend this spot.

This was our first time camping with our 2 boys and we are so glad we chose April's beautiful property for a weekend getaway! We all had a great time fishing, horse back riding, exploring, and eating smores by the fire. April was a very welcoming host and answered all our questions promptly. The kids loved the camping experience and can't wait to go back!
