!!! CAMPERS WITH RVs REQUIRING ELECTRICITY MUST RESERVE ON THE MORRIS MANOR AND RETREAT RV SITE !!!  (Site 1 - The Talking Trees)

Site 2 – The Favorite Spot

               This spot has been dubbed the “favorite” spot because it is the most centrally located spot on the property.  You have the pond directly in front of you, Angel Island to your right, the gaming area to your left, the honey bees behind you  and the shortest walking distance to the port-o-potties.  This area is very open and has plenty of room for several campers (approximately 15 to 20) if needed.  It has a fire pit, picnic table, bar high table and chairs and trash container.  It has the best view and the easiest access of the pond!

 

Site 3 – Pirate’s Cove

               This is our smallest camp site.  It is hidden behind a tree line and right next to the separating fence and riding/walking trail.  It is themed with Pirate’s gold, boating décor, swords and a surprise or two.  It’s a cozy little spot for two but can hold up to 4 comfortably.  It has a fire pit, picnic table, two boney chairs and small drink table as well as a trash container.  It also has a small solar light on a pole.

 

Site 4 – The Barnyard

               This site is currently under remodel.  The camping site is available but the themed area is being upgraded.  It has an old barn with a small covered area and a cattle corral.  Eventually the corral area will be where the main fire pit is located.  This area has a small fire pit, a picnic table, two butterfly wick chairs and a drink table along with a trash container.  This is a corner somewhat secluded area next to the separating fence and cow field.  It has a fantastic view of the pond and all the other front area spots and is in walking distance to the Lazy Dais hammock area.

 

Site 5 – The Arizona

               This is the first site on the back side of the separating fence.  This area is quaint and quiet.  It is festooned with metal cactus, real cactus and colorful salamanders and pots.  It has a small solar light on a pole, a brick fire pit, a picnic table and a trash container.  It connects to the riding/walking trail and sits a little ways from a deer feeder.  In the mornings and right at dusk you may see several deer eating in the area.

Site 6 – The Golden Star

               TEMPORARILY CLOSED FOR RENOVATIONS.  This site sits in the middle of the back field.  It also connects to the riding/walking trail and has a view of the aforementioned deer feeder.  It is decorated with old farming items and behind the actual site is a bent over tree that hails the “golden star” it is named for.  It is equipped with a fire ring, a picnic table, a small solar light on a pole and a trash receptacle.  Upgrades are coming in 2022 to add a wooden deck and sitting area.  TEMPORARILY CLOSED FOR RENOVATIONS.

 

Site 7 – Armadillo Alley

               This site is the largest and furthest away.  It sits in the very back of the property and has lots of room and openness.  We’ve had groups of 50+ people stay out there in the past.  It is breezy and relaxing.  A calm and peace comes over you as you enjoy the natural atmosphere around you and have an open gaze at the night stars.  This area is also known for having little critters (ie: armadillos) digging around at night every now and then and thus is what this site is named after.  It has a brick fire pit, a picnic table, a small solar light on a pole and a trash container.  Again there is access points to the riding/walking trail and a view of a different deer feeder.

Tents can be pitched almost anywhere on the property. Near the pond, farther out in the fields for total privacy, or in the fenced-in RV area (when available). You can enjoy fishing, swimming and paddle boating in the pond or just hang out and roam the property. 

We have bagged ice and firewood bundles for sale. 

Pasture raised duck eggs as well as our PURE honey are also available for purchase when available!

Beautiful property! I watched the sun set from the dock and enjoyed some coffee on the island in the morning and watched ducks swim in the pond. The skies were clear so we were able to see so many stars! Todd was an amazing host. Will definitely be back!

We loved camping on Todd’s land.
Very spacious and relaxing. Todd was an excellent host! We stayed at the favorite spot site. Would definitely recommend it! It was close to the portable toilet and the pond (Angel island).

Todd was an incredible and accommodating host. Pirate’s Cove had a beautiful view and matched the description exactly.
The lake made the scenery even better, along with Angel’s Island. Not to mention a paddle boat, tetherball, and hiking!
My dog also loved swimming in the lake, riding in the boat, and playing frisbee by the campsite.

We had a wonderful time spending Easter here. We tent camped right along the pond and used the paddle boat several times. My husband and daughter caught over ten fish! Todd was very welcoming and made us feel right at home. We even left with a dozen duck eggs. ☺️ One of our new favorite spots.

I stayed here with my husband and 3 kids , we were lucky enough to be the only campers at the time so we had the place to ourselves. The land was beautiful and my children had a great time fishing in the lake . The restrooms we clean and maintained , there was even a John boat and a paddle boat available for us . We had a great time and will definitely be visiting again !

We had a wonderful time! Raymond was a great host, and the property was beautiful. We loved having our morning coffee on Angel Island, watching the ducks waddle into the pond, and sitting by the fire at night. It was an excellent spot to set up the camper for a couple of nights. We'd definitely recommend it!
