Gorgeous grassy spot. Tons of shade trees, beautiful bird song and not too many bugs. There were all the regular bugs but none of the obnoxious kinds. No biting flies. No mosquitoes on memorial Day weekend when we went. There's about seven different spots to pick from for putting your tent. The table is sturdy and the fire pit is small but Brady provided ample firewood . Me and the kids made it down the rope into the creek and had a splash which was fun. The porta-Pot was clean and not too far from site.
Overall, it was super private and wonderful place to be and relax.

We really enjoyed this space. It was thoughtfully laid out and peaceful. The host had us set up and checked in on us throughout our stay. Highly recommend!

My buddy and I had an extremely great time camping here this weekend. Our drive was great, instructions clear and our host was phenomenal. I only recently learned of Hipcamp and was weary of trying this out, but Brady gave us an experience that will be hard to beat. Having had the whole property to ourselves, we had the freedom and opportunity to explore and make camp wherever we found suitable however we decided to stay near my truck and the main pavillion area for sake of weather. We were able to stay in contact with Brady who responded quickly with any questions we had, and he even came out on our final night to provide us with some more firewood and talk with us for a bit. I am looking forward to staying here again when the weather starts to get warmer.

Please don't judge our water bottles, we didn't dispose of them in the fire, they froze overnight and were kept near the fire briefly to melt.Horseshoe Bend - Creekside SitePlease don't judge our water bottles, we didn't dispose of them in the fire, they froze overnight and were kept near the fire briefly to melt.Horseshoe Bend - Creekside Site

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
