Pitch your tent anywhere you'd like on a gorgeous secluded property with a creek running through it. The property is surrounded by beautiful mature trees with a big open field. Lots of wildlife comes through- deer, owls, hawks, beautiful birds of all kinds, frogs, fish, chipmunks, squirrels, foxes, and more! There is a massive firepit for bonfires with adirondack chairs for your use. The firepit is closer to the house but it is still fairly private as it is situated in front of the unoccupied walk-out basement. I can also provide a smaller firepit table to use near your campsite per request. There is also a private deck with a table and 5 chairs that is a bit further away from the house. 

You can relax by the creek listening to the peaceful sounds of the flowing water while reading or writing, or catch crawdads and frogs. On hot days you can take a dip in the creek to cool off! There are also plenty of forest preserves and trails nearby for hiking and biking.

Park your car in the large driveway and walk a minute or two to your campsite. You can enter through my private walk-out basement to use the restroom. All the properties in this neighborhood are large and houses are spread far apart. It feels like you are in the middle of nowhere but if you drive 5 minutes to Randall Rd. you will find pretty much any store or restaurant you could ever desire. Some pets you may see while driving into the neighborhood are horses, chickens, a peacock and I have a pet mini-pig, Alice! She has her own bedroom inside my house but on nice days she loves spending time in her outdoor pen which is near the barn. She is very friendly and loves meeting people. If you don't see her outside and want to meet her, just let me know! I do keep my grass short but I do not use any chemicals/fertilizers whatsoever. It truly is a beautiful slice of nature that I am excited to share with other nature lovers.

We stayed at Kristen's for a weekend and had a wonderful time. She lives in a wooded residential area. We were able to park in her large driveway and walk 1-2 min to where we decided to setup camp right by the creek. Her yard is really large and well kept. We were happy to have access to her bathroom through her walk out basement but still felt we had plenty of privacy. Also, Kristen's communication was super consistent and helpful. This spot is awesome and a great value. Highly recommend! We will be back!
