This is such a wonderful place to stay. I hesitate to leave a review because I want to keep it a secret so I can come back whenever I want, lolol. Having the compost toilet, potable water and many shade trees makes it as easy to tent camp as it gets. Highly recommend!!!!!

Unfortunately, the site that was shown on HipCamp did not necessarily match what we were presented with, but let's start with the pros. There was a grassy field with beautiful oak trees. There was great bird watching and we were visited by Sandhill Cranes and Red-headed woodpeckers every day. There was a compost toilet that was clean and didn't smell bad. It also had a good supply of toilet paper and hand sanitizer. They even had a spigot from the ground for hand washing.

The cons are that there were more than 3 individual campsites on the property with at least 6 groups camping that I counted. There were many large trash heaps around the property that consisted of items like wall siding, old furniture, and ripped up carpet. There was also a lot of rusted out metal garbage strewn about the trees. This site did not have a traditional fire ring and picnic table as the listing said. The "fire ring" we were given was a broken rusted out above ground item and the "picnic table" looked like it came from someone's bulk trash. It was a white plastic set that looked like it had been outside for a very long time. Finally, it was pretty close to a main road and there was lots of traffic noise.

This site does have potential if it was cleaned up with its nice trees and tucked away location.

"Picnic table" that we were givenUnfortunate trash heaps ruin the ambianceTrash heap in background between us and next group of campers.
