Extremely private and secluded without having to walk too far. So very peaceful, especially at night, listening to the frogs, crickets and owls. Close to town (if you decide you need anything) but traffic noise is minimal. Great primitive camp site. Host Michael is very friendly, and gracious. He gives you all the privacy you need yet still promptly answers any questions you may have. The new fire ring he installed is great, I love cooking on the open fire. A++ Would camp here again. Great host, great location, great site! : )

Plenty trees to hang from

A peaceful campsite with good trees for hanging a hammock. My dog loved exploring the area and I enjoyed listening to the birds and frogs with a campfite going. Michael is a pleasant host as well.

Michael was a superb host. He waited for us at the barn and offered his Jeep and trailer to haul all of our gear out to the site (because I did have a 0 clearance Mazda 6). The site was perfect; remote, great firepit, good breeze. The night was loud in the best way; bullfrogs and critters from the nearby pond.

This is a great site for primitive tent camping. The host was very welcoming and helpful. This is a no frills site, and that was what I wanted. Like back country but near anything you might need in a pinch. Went on a rainy weekend, but if you go in better weather, the 4x4 traffic in the area might be more frequent. There were a couple that came down the road beside the camp. Do not try to drive anything but a 4WD vehicle with good clearance in from the barn. If you need to walk in, the walk is less than a half mile, maybe more like a 1/4. Wear orange in hunting season. Looks like a popular area for it.
