Needed a 3 night tent camping spot and all the “usual” state parks, etc., were booked. This place turned out to be an excellent alternative for us (motorcycle camping). Bruno was a great hos! He met us upon arrival and showed us our best bets for dispersed camping. We camped at the very private and quiet spot, furthest from the chicken farm. Had a great time and the firewood was plentuful.

I checked in with Bruno and he was awesome. He was a spectacular host and I am only writing this review to help others have some insight before booking. There is a very loud chicken farm right next to this listing and it is not ideal if you’re looking for a peaceful secluded place. I could not see the chicken farm, or any other campsites, but the noise was so loud that I was not able to get everything unloaded before throwing in the towel and going home.

I really hate to write this review because Bruno is one of the best hosts I have encountered, and he has done a substantial amount of work to the place. I could tell that he genuinely wanted people to have a good time, and I wish I could’ve stayed longer!

Response from Bruno, the Host, on April 28th, 2021

Hi Zach, we apologize for your bad experience. Wish we could’ve helped resolve the issue before you left. You did decide to pick that site when we walked through it. For future campers, site #3 is near a neighbors fence which there are chickens. However, our other sites on the other side of the property are comfortable and quiet as you can see from the positive reviews. We always walk the campers through all the sites before they make their final selection. Sites #1 and 2 are the most popular. We tend not to put campers on site #3 unless they choose.

Tent camping in the wild was a nice getaway as so much was already booked during spring break. The hosts were pleasant, communication was fantastic, and the area was pretty private.
The only downside was that the property was a bit sandy and it irritated my allergies - small issue, just good to be ready for. I might suggest to the owners to mark the parking area and campsites to be clearer, but again that's minor.
Our site was PEFECT for spending the days in the hammock! The picnic table, fire ring (not at all sites I believe), and firewood were nice to have and the surprise solar-lit tree was a nice touch! The grounds were clean and free of trash too. I recommend it! Thanks Bruno!

A great place to stay! Bruno was extremely helpful and curated a nice little getaway not far from the city. The site was tidy, mostly secluded, and included a bench, fire ring, games (!!), and plenty of space for our tent. The site was a small walk in which is helpful to note while packing for your trip.

Been here several times and always a nice night next to the fire under the stars. Haven’t tried all the sites but the one right behind the property is perfect for introducing young kids or dogs to camping. Exactly as advertised. Camping under the stars.

Loved our time here! This was our first HipCamp experience; though we're avid campers, we usually stay at state parks. We were a group of 10, and we were all very impressed at everything Bruno did to help us have a comfortable stay. Some great perks:
-Outhouse was clean and stocked with TP. It was actually cleaned out during our stay, which was really nice!
-Outdoor lights were pretty and helped us walk between sites/to the outhouse at night
-Water available by the outhouse for potable use and closer to the sites for non-potable use
-Box with games provided
-Firewood, fire pit, and cutters provided at each site
-Picnic table provided at most (if not all) sites
-Bruno was very accommodating and answered our numerous questions before the stay - he was a perfect host! We appreciated the quick tour he provided upon arrival and the privacy provided afterwards.

Sites 1 and 2 were our favorites; Site 2 provided the most privacy. Site 3 was a little close to a neighbor's roosters, though that's not something Bruno could control.

It is worth noting that the sites and the driveway are very sandy - we didn't have any trouble, but you might want to plan accordingly with footwear and vehicles.

Thanks again, Bruno! We loved our stay and hope to come back soon!
