Camp under mature oak trees in a property bordered by native wetlands and woods. Escape the city lights. The magic of fireflies/ lightening bugs twinkling over the prairie grass in the undisturbed wetlands will amaze you. You might share 6 acres with other campers. There are many local activities in the area. Please google McHenry County Visitors Center for a current resource of festivals, expos, hiking, restaurants and more. At sunrise a mist usually lies over the wetland in the early hours of the warm seasons. The fall is also fantastic when you walk through the rustling leaves and take in the orange leaves on the hickory trees or the red leaves on the maples. Regardless of the season wildlife can best be viewed at sunrise or sunset if you are very quiet to avoid scaring them back into the woods. We often have extra deadwood to make a campfire with.  Enjoy a walk around 6 acre property. Visit ducks and chickens on site. 

The property is in an unincorporated area.  We have bird's eye photos included in our listing.  Guests have some choice in where they set up.  Although we allow fires, we cannot promise private ones.  We do usually provide wood to burn however.  On busy nights, like Saturday, fires may need to be shared.  Many campers appreciate the access to town only 2 miles away.  

On rare events there could be an unexpected celebration in the distance.  We will do our best to accommodate guests if this occurs.

When you book with us you agree to pay an additional $20 if you arrive after 10 pm to check in. This does not include no shows or cancellations.

It was very fun! The camp site was smaller than anticipated but it was easy to make the most of it. Loved feeding the ducks! Dave was a great host.

Quaint little BnB with a large grassy area that they rent to hip campers. I’ve never seen a $25/hour late checkout fee on Hipcamp but this is an amazing place to stop if you’re checked out on time (which we were).
