I stayed in camp site #3 and it was perfectly set back in the woods. The chairs and fire pit were excellent and there was a great spot to pitch my tent. Heidi was super friendly and I would recommend camping here to anyone looking for a quiet, peaceful getaway.

Beautiful woods and private, flat camping sites. The cicadas and tree frogs lulled us right to sleep and we enjoyed seeing all the horses on the property. Heidi was very welcoming and our site was all ready for us with firewood when we arrived. It is a bit of a walk from the parking area to the camping spots - especially spots 3 and 4 so be prepared for that and pack accordingly!

Heidi was a fantastic host! She went above and beyond in every way, and was also an absolute sweetheart from the get go. The sites are secluded and spacious enough for the recommended people. I recommend her 100%!

The camping sites are tucked in the back woods behind the farm. Sites #1 and #2 are the closest to the parking, and offer the most space, while sites 3 and 4 are tucked a bit further into the woods. Heidi (host) was very welcoming and provided water and firewood and no charge. The back woods have well maintained paths. Overall really enjoyed our stay there.
