This is a peaceful and quiet spot to spend the night. We arrived late at night, but the directions were perfect and it was easy to find where to park our van. We had the place to ourselves. There is a large pavilion with picnic table that we could have used, but we did not need it. Larissa was very good about communicating with us, and the property is very well kept. We recommend!

Great time, Larissa was an excellent host. We caught a lot of fish and the land was kept up and beautiful!

We loved camping right next to the pond. The space is quite open. It was different than we were used to (in woods surrounded by trees all around) but we really liked it still. Camping on fresh cut grass was actually a welcome change. I got to actually use my croquet set that I can’t ever use in the woods. We were fortunate we were the only campers there. If there was another group or two we’d probable hear each other around the corner because voices echo across the pond. Definitely a great spot for families, or people who don’t need complete privacy but still want to be somewhat secluded. The host was very friendly and helpful. Thank you. We’ll be back.

Pond not worthy of swimming but still pretty.  We got in the stream that is just a minute walk around corner.  Great lawn for games.Plastic picnic table already there. 3 bros chillin

The host Larissa is amazing! Very friendly! The place she has is sooo beautiful. The creek was so much fun. Both my 6 and 2 year old loved it. And there was a tiny waterfall at the creek! The Lake/pond is massive and you can just pop your tent up right by the water in the shade. Down by the lake and the creek is very private. Tons of room to explore. Even down the hill is a cute little table set to look over the lake. We’re not fishing people but they were jumping all day and we saw a couple on the shore line. They have the coolest dragonflies at the lake too! I can not wait to come back.

Creek waterfall. Trail near the pole barn. Beautiful ferns at the creek. What you see sitting at the table set by the water.

Second time going! Just as awesome! Did a trail to the side and was pure magic finding the creek a bit down! Property is very well taken care of and private.

We needed to get out of the house with enough space to not stress about social distancing. Larissa's site was perfect for this. The kids played in the creek all day and we fell asleep under the most amazing night sky.
Larissa was an extremely gracious host. I would recommened this site to families who need fresh air and wide open spaces.

Loved the site. Way more than we expected. The pictures don’t do it justice. So great to have a creek and a lake on the same property.

So much wildlife on the property River artAwesome animal visitors Great fire pit

we had such an amazing, restorative, and playful time here. there was so much to do and look at. it was private and quiet. there were several ponds, creeks, open fields, and trails. the hosts went above and beyond to accommodate us.
