Great site with all the fixings!
Amazing! I Ioved my stay here. The frogs by the pond were fun and the hosts were very welcoming. It is out in the country but still fairly close to town which was nice for my stay.
Very nice location with electric hookup. Water was available, but no direct hookup. Hosts were very friendly and super nice. Went fishing in their pond and caught a few bass.
Thank you Jo and Leon...we enjoyed our stay!
Jo has a lovely spot set up on her property! It's totally equipped with anything you might need for an overnight and Jo makes it super easy to get settled in. She's thought of everything! It's easy to get to and is a quiet, beautiful spot on a lovely pond. The sun sets right across the pond from the campsite, making for a perfect way to end the day! The outdoor shower is an AMAZING touch, especially on hot days! As a woman traveling solo, I also felt totally safe spending the night here.
Oasis in vandalia
This stay was the best that I have encountered when using Hipcamp - the site was simply OUTSTANDING and very affordable given the space and amenities.
Coming up over the hill and a turn into the property, you are greeted by with what can only be described as an oasis. Jo and Leon have made an escape that you can stay at that includes a small pond and a carport to camp under. A firepit and picnic table are there for your convenience and they even provide a small prep table and firewood.
The setting is beautiful; fish jump, frogs ribbit, and geese visit. The sun sets in front of you as you sit on the provided bench and look out across the water in the evenings. Amenities come aplenty with a provided shower and out-door bathroom.
As hosts, Jo and Leon were very accommodating, providing a list of rules and visiting for a little bit. Most may not like this, but I find it is better to meet face-to-face and have clear communication with the hosts of any given site.
Jo was great! She was super responsive and came out to meet us even though we had a pretty late arrival. We were only there to get some sleep on a cross country road trip and her driveway did the job. The only thing that we all agreed could be a bit better is it was fairly noisy and tricky to sleep. There are a couple dogs next door who were barking a fair bit all night and morning, and the toads and cars passing by were a bit noisy too. Definitely not an issue if you’re prepared, but I think we expected it to be a bit more isolated than this.
Nice place to stay
Great spot. The gravel drive is nice and level. The covered carport is a nice addition to give extra shade. There is a table to eat at, plus Adirondack chairs to use to look out over the lovely pond. They had firewood stacked up for use as well. They put alot of thought and care into making this a nice place to stay. There is also power available and a porta potty if needed. We would stay here again.
