Magical weekends of weddings/food🥑
It is a wonderful spacious area with gracious hosts and so many great places to contribute with nature or relax. I witnessed a beautiful wedding here and it was absolutely wonderful.
Amazing place for adults and kids
Jim and Dawn made this a very special experience for me and my 8-year-old daughter. We were only there for 24 hours, but the hospitality, the Captain Crunch french toast, the activities for children (fairy house building), the animals, the scenery, and the people we met made this a camping trip to remember.
The mission of this place and the impact they are making is inspiring and one I can support. One of my favorite camping experiences of all time!!!
Great tent camping option
This place was awesome! Last minute we had to change our camping spot and EcoShire saved the trip for our family. The space was big, our dog looooved to run around and my 2 year old son was entertained. There is running water, trash cans and toilets. It was a very good experience Jim and his family were all very welcoming and great hosts. We will definitely come back again!!
Solitude and peace
This is my second time at EcoShire. The first time was with my wife and we had a great time. I was there this time for solitude. I got a campsite that made me feel alone and peaceful like I wanted. When I did want to talk just before I left I had a very meaningful talk with Jim. He is a Sage. I will be back again, with my wife, or I may bring my church's men's group and have a blast, or I may come alone just to be quiet again. Either way, EcoShire can accommodate.
This was our first time actually camping out in the nature and we were so lucky we were able to do it here! Jim and Dawn (and many other friends including the woofs and meows) were so friendly and helpful, and the site was beautiful. Would definitely come back! Thank you :)
A home away from home.
This is our second time here and it's the best camping experience by far. Jim & Dawn are hospitable host with a kind heart. If you want a place to be left alone or a place where you find sincere and humble people this is your spot. We are so greatful to have found this gem!
Well kept, convenient campsites.
Very helpful and peaceful. Gave us firewood after it rained to help us get our fire going. They have bathrooms and a shower. Activities to do like axe throwing, archery, gun range (with a little dog that likes to chase bullets), Cornhole, hammocks to lay in, children's playground, and plenty of other things to do. They have a common area if you want to meet and greet or campsites gather away if you want to be alone totally. Very nice and helpful! Defininetly will be returning to stay again!
