Relax by the creek listening to the flowing water or take a dip in it on a hot day! The property is surrounded by large mature trees and has a big open field in the middle and a creek running through it. There is a large firepit with adirondack chairs for bonfires. The firepit is closer to the house but still fairly private as it is situated in front of the unoccupied walk-out basement. If requested I can provide a firepit table and a charcoal grill that you can keep closer to your campsite. There is also a deck off to the side, close to the parking spot, with a table and 5 chairs. 

Lots of wildlife comes through- deer, beautiful birds of all kinds, hawks, owls, frogs, squirrels, chipmunks, fox and more! I keep my grass short and try my best to keep up with the weeds, but I do not use any chemicals or fertilizers whatsoever. 

There are quite a few forest preserves and trails nearby for hiking or biking. Driving through the neighborhood you might see horses, chickens, and a peacock. This property feels like you are in the middle of the woods but if you drive 5 minutes to Randall Rd. there is pretty much any restaurant or store you could ever want. 

Pets are welcome. The property is not fenced so pets will need to be leashed or well-trained not to run off onto the neighbor's properties. I have a mini-pig who lives indoors but loves to spend nice days outside in her fenced area by the barn. If you see her outside feel free to say hi or let me know if you'd like to meet her and I can try to make sure she gets out there.

I have a very large driveway with a large spot on the side that is perfect for an RV/camper. Right in front of this parking spot is the entrance to the beautiful backyard. It really is a gorgeous slice of nature that I am excited to share with other nature-lovers.

Very nice host! Nice property , a great place for tenters . Basically a driveway parking spot for a trailer or motor home. Good spot for an overnight. Quiet spot.

This was a great overnight stop for my family. Kristen was super friendly and her yard was beautiful. My son loved splashing in the creek!

Perfect in our small motorhome to relax after 500 miles and prep to get east around Chicago and 650 miles next day Early. Quiet, safe, nice hostess and easy on and off. I like this Hipcamp thing so much I will be up and running with my 15 acres in Maine by July. Probably no more campgrounds.
