If you're looking for an exclusive.... you found it, we only have one site on one of the most private ponds in the region that is larger than most of the lakes around here. Tent on site and most cooking supplies included, you have no set ups to do, just come and relax on a stunning oak lined path that leads you to a hidden paradise of privacy and camping luxury. Our yard has over two acres of manicured lawn with ax throwing, bad mitten,  an archery set up,  corn hole and horse shoes.  We want this to be the best time you have had in a while. We love camping and basically work to travel and experience new and awesome places!  Sun yourself on the floating dock, chill and grill on the beach. Site access is a short walk down a path with a cart to carry your items, please park on the grass when you arrive. Wood is included for the fire pit. Please reach out with any questions and I’m sure you will love it! We provide a tent for 4 people comfortably, with a blow up queen mattress, sleeping pad for one person and one cot to sleep. Any additional people you will need to provide sleeping materials and a tent, also bring your own pillows and blankets. A Bluetooth speaker is great for nights to bring if you want to listen to tunes, or a battery operated fan for the tent on hot nights another great item to bring. Solar shower just went up so bring bathing items. Up at the house you're welcome to use our outdoor plugs to charge your cells or blow up any mattress needed. We also have a one power bank and a few games on site.

We had a wonderful time at Michael and Christine's!

You can tell when a host has actually spent time camping on their property and when they have offered up a Hipcamp as an after thought.
These guys have thought it though. I had to bring very little with us to be comfortable.

There is a great shower area with plenty of privacy. The outhouse situation was very clean and easy to access at night.
The camp site had plenty of lights that came on on their own so there was enough light to get around safely.
The tent is roomey and could even be divided with a sheet in the middle if you needed while still allowing 2 seperate doors. You can also zip up all the windows so it's pitch black inside if you prefer to sleep in.

The lake did attract a lot of people the weekend I was there. Kayakers and fishermen nothing loud but be aware if this is something that would bother you.
There were multiple small islands around the lake. Some accessible some not but it made for interesting boat explorations. A suprising lack of bugs during our stay which was great.
Hosts were wonderful and accommodating. They provided us water for washing ourselves and our dishes.

I brought my 5 yo and he was happy as a clam for 2 solid days playing the sand, swimning, fishing and learning how to paddle. He wants to come back with everyone we know. I haven't done a Hipcamp twice yet because I am always looking for the "next adventure" but this might just be the one that I come back to.

We had a fantastic time! The hosts were very accommodating and had everything we could need. The tent was plenty big for the two of us and the area was very private.

Michael and Christine were the most wonderful hosts. From BEFORE we arrived they showed over the top hospitality from sending very detailed videos and pictures about checking in and after arrival taking the time out of their day to come and introduce themselves and make sure we had everything. My nephew had an amazing time playing all of the games/activities and couldn't stop talking about how much fun he had.

Activities: 10/10. If you have small children they will be entertained from swimming, to baseball and so much more. For my adults out there, you will be entertained by the lake, boating, and the activities!

Tent: 11/10 sacious and very clean.

Lakefront space: Clean, and the boats, paddle board, and floaties really enhanced options of what to do.

Cooking/eating area: 12/10. First time we've been at a hipcamp that had such an outstanding cook station. The table is also nicely in the shade so you can eat peacefully.

Facilities (shower/toilet): 10/10 very cleaned and maintained.

Fire pit: Amazing and there are more than enough chairs to go around. Firewood was also kept nice and dry.

Hosts: 13/10. Amazing, kind, and the main reason we will be returning!

Thank you for an amazing stay! We will be back.

Very lovely, right on the lake camp spot. Hosts did a great job constructing a composting outhouse and solar bag shower with curtains. Cooking area had all the odds and ends and even cards and games. I didn't use their rent, but it's huge and has air mattress/cot.

I spent the time swimming in the lake and kayaking with their gear. Hosts are very communicative, kind, and their spot is an awesome and QUIET nook where you feel rather remote considering their aren't many houses along the lakeside.

I also threw some axes at their targets which was great. Highly recommended, especially for solo campers. This place is totally why I do hipcamp. Would camp here again!!

We had a great time at Michael’s land. The lake is beautiful, with small islands in the distance. It’s dreamy! You can access them all by paddle boat or kayak. There is everything you need at the campsite, including a large tent that can accommodate three people, composting toilet, a small stove, charcoal grill, fire pit, and basic cooking appliances. There was a great deal of kindness and thoughtfulness on the part of the owners. We highly recommend this place.

It was an honor to be Michael and Christine's first guests at their Gorgeous Private Late site. Just as the title states their place is absolutely gorgeous and private. The lake is gorgeous and lots of fun. We brought our inflatable kayaks but having a row boat, kayak, paddle board and floats right on the site to use we never even took ours out of the car. Michael and Christine have thought of everything to make your camping, (definitely more like glamping) experience perfect. The tent was large and roomy and having it all set up made the decision to book even easier. The composting toilet close by the tent was so convenient! Their attention to detail is outstanding. Everything from the solar lights to the small cooking area and a ready stacked campfire was perfect. The site is right on the lake and a short walk to their house which they have outside activities including ax throwing, archery and corn hole. They are fantastic hosts and were easily reachable and fun people to get to know! We definitely will be back! If you are looking for a great lakeside camping experience you will not be disappointed! Thanks again Michael and Christine for such a awesome weekend!
