Spent labor day weekend there. Had tons of fun playing and fishing in the river. Over 3 days the husband caught around 2 dozen fish, mostly small however some good size ones too. Love this place, would definitely book again sometime.

If you want to unplug this is the place. The creek was a bit low but we still managed to fish it and wade in. Plenty of fire wood was provided by Brady. Brady was happy to have us and provided everything we asked for and was on top of things. Responded fast to our questions. Brady is a camper himself so def a connection there. A very peaceful place to relax and enjoy the sounds of nature. Lots of wildlife if you’re quiet enough to see it. Deer, groundhogs, squirrels, and our first night I think we heard a coyote or something. Brady we will be back thank you very much for sharing your land.

Visually nice but noticed pieces of glass and sheet metal sticking out of the ground. Awuful oder of either chicken or cow manuer. Overwhelming at times till the wind direction changes. We did enjoy fishing and swimming in the creek.

Had a awesome time with the family and Brady was a outstanding host. He introduced himself on the first night and fogged the area for us and even when my son said we forgot the bug spray he brought some down. I’m honestly looking forward to coming back again due to the welcome ness and respect that Brady showed my family and I. The site was also perfect. Right off the creek where we spent a lot of time swimming tubing and fishing. Everyone should check it out. You won’t go wrong going with Brady

The site by the creek at horseshoe bend is a beautiful place to pitch a tent. The creek is right next to the site so you can wake up to sounds of nature. So pretty. I had the place to myself on a rainy monday, and enjoyed the paths and pastures on the mowed trail's that take you around the land. I look forward to staying there again.

The campsite is great, shaded and next to the creek which our dog really enjoyed. There’s a picnic table and wood which Brady provided for making a campfire. The port-a-pot looked well maintained and cleaned.

We unfortunately had to leave earlier than planned but would still totally recommend. There is a supermarket about 10 minutes away.

The creekside site was perfect for us. A quiet clearing, freshly mowed by Brady, provided us the perfect environment to relax for the day. Portapotty was close and in good shape. Brady provided us with firewood and was very nice to talk with. He was very accommodating and knows quite a lot about the land. Definitely recommend staying here!
