It was a perfect location. Felt great to be in the woods and look at the stars at night!

Would definitely come back!

You must stay here if you canoe, kayak, or paddle anything. Very private.

We love unique and private campsites that are close to local hiking trails. This spot was absolutely perfect for us. It is located only a few minutes away from some local towns with great antique shops and some amazing hiking trails. We enjoyed the privacy Susie’s spot offers even though it was pretty close to the road. The fire pit is HUGE and the shed was very useful! Having the electric hookup was the cherry on top. We have been traveling with our vintage camper so it worked out perfectly. Will definitely be back again!

Overall, solid camp site. Close to the water but also isolated and not around other campers. Please keep the entering driveway clear as it was overgrown and branches scratched our car.

This site was very secluded which we enjoyed. Access to the site was difficult because there was no road, an overgrown trees which scraped on the car. The sign was way off the road and hard to see. It seemed like this was an unused lot. There was some kind of old water heater and bar stool tossed in the grass along the path which made us wonder if we were on the right path but there were litterally no other places to go. If you choose this site be sure to come well prepared and watch out for chiggers and ticks - there were a ton.

We enjoyed our stay at Glowconsin. There was plenty of room for our small teardrop trailer and our friend's tent. Driveway is a bit narrow so likely wouldn't have wanted anything much larger as far as RVs.
Site is nice and private - you can't see other houses/road. Star gazing was great at night. You can hear road noise - road was pretty busy the weekend we were there (Memorial Day); but it quieted down at night.
Location was great about 5-10min drive to Buckhorn State Park. Boat launch was about 1 mile away, could be walkable but again road was pretty busy. We also enjoyed nearby dog beach.
Toilet situation was not great although workable. Shed had some helpful tools but we brought most of the stuff we needed.
Overall, especially given the price, this site was a nice getaway for some car camping.

Nice spot for a quick overnight! We love dispersed camping and this spot was a nice alternative along our route.
