Barbara's land is magical. It was exactly what I was hoping for when we decided to check out the Shawnee National Forest area. She showed us a super cool little lake for canoeing and helped us to weather a pretty intense night time storm. I highly recommend! See you next time.

We had a great time at Barbara's land. The communication was great and it is in a good location for us (only 5-10 minutes to Ferne Clyffe State Park and Dutchman Lake, 45 minutes to the Gardens of the Gods). Would definitely stay there!
