It's so close, but feels so far away!  This campsite is nestled in the wood line between a 6+ acre farm estate home and Engelmann Farm Park in the Village of Shiloh, a 145 acre preserved historic park. The home is only 2.7 miles from I-64, 2 miles from Scott Air Force Base, 2.1 miles to Memorial Hospital, and just minutes from shopping and eating.  A bike path is accessible

It was lovely staying here! Great little pocket tucked away behind the house. Totally private but all the amenities needed and wonderful hosts!

Lisa was very hospitable and the camp site exceeded my expectations. She had all the basics for a successful, fun, and comfortable camping experience. She was also very thorough while showing me the property and even showed me where I could access some neat historical sites right off of her property. While this site definitely gives you the outdoor feel you need to feel in the wilderness, it is also not too far from the city so if you need anything it's a short drive and there is cell service!

Booked both of Lisa's campsites for 4th of July weekend, but stayed mostly on this side.

Lisa's hospitality was very much appreciated. She really adds value to the site by providing lots of essentials and extras, which is a big help. If you're used to car camping, you do have to walk your gear in further than you normally would, but the huge amount of space and quiet you get is worth it.
