The carport is over 200 feet off the county road and very private, only a few houses in the distance (besides mine) 

You will be within feet of 50yr old apple trees, probably the last in the state! 

Excellent spot to stargaze 

Leave the loud, smelly truck stops behind and book apple acres!

Jonathon is a grear host and Apple Acres is a beautiful place in the country for a getaway. The carport was great to park our camper underneath which provided protection from the sun and rain. Having electric and water hookups make for a really comfortable set-up. Unfortunately, the weather wasn't cooperative for our stay and the rain and cold finally did us in and we went home early. We were disappointed that we didn't get to take full advantage of the trails on the property, the small lake, or even a nightly campfire in the fire ring. That said, the hosts went above and beyond and we are looking forward to returning for a future stay. Next time will not be in April that's for sure! My dog and I were sleeping in our tent when a ferocious storm came through on night #3 with high winds, lightning, and rain coming down in buckets for literally hours non-stop. I thought we were gonna die and pretty sure I have PTSD now. I should have taken Jonathan up on his offer to stay in his basement! YES, the host opened his home to us for bad weather. But...I didn't want to intrude and I really didn't think it would get that bad. I was wrong!

We had to leave early due to wind and rain but hope to stay again. Jonathan had firewood set up for us. There is a nice carport and picnic table. We really enjoyed all the trails and we were told there was a large pond. We were sorry we didn’t get to enjoy it longer.

Excellent location, friendly hosts, beautiful property. The hosts will allow you as much or as little interaction as you prefer. Was very considerate and made great recommendations for food and places to walk the dogs. I would definitely stay again!

Jonathan's camp site was the perfect last minute spot when our other campground plans fell through! Immediate booking was a breeze and the carport with lights was comforting when we came in right at dusk and still had to setup. Having wood already in the fire pit and an array of other comforts at hand within the carport was so nice, and despite the cold temperatures, we were very comfortable at Apple Acres!

This was such a great Hipcamp! Far enough from Indianapolis to be quiet and relaxing but close enough to drive into the city for a meal. The site looked out into a beautiful meadow and the covered carport made it feel private and safe. Jonathan had wood for a campfire set up and even offered to start the campfire so it would be ready for us when we arrived. He was really communicative and helpful. We really appreciated that he had a little first aid kit, folding table, and plenty of campfire extras in case we needed it. Apple Acres was truly lovely and we hope to return soon!
