Great campsite! It’s on a farm and behind wire to keep cows out from the camping area. Got to see some turkey’s, cows, calf’s, and quail from my tent.

John is an amazing host, he is proud of his ranch and why should’nt he? It’s beatifull up the hill, right in nature and with the comfort of water and a dixi toilet on site. Because of the drought we could’nt make a camp fire but gas cooking is allowed. We really liked it here, its so peacefull between the cows, squirls, frogs,… you can stargaze here, the skies are so clear! Sunset is also beatifull
