Peace within reach
We loved camping at the Sanctuary! It was the most private spot I have ever camped. We saw a Blue Heron, a family of otters, and spent the day catching crawfish and laying in the sun. I highly recommend this spot for someone who wants to "get away" without going too far away!
Ken’s spot is all around beautiful. There were wild flowers all around and it is a little walk to the campsite, but he does have a wheel barrow you can put your items into. The spot is beside a creek and has a bench to look out at the water. There is also a fire pit! It poured the rain when my boyfriend and I stayed, but the creek did not flood and it was relaxing. We’ll for sure come back!
My boyfriend and I really enjoyed our stay at Beaver Bend. Our tent opened to a beautiful view of the river, which was super clear and clean. Ken was a great and super friendly host and we loved exploring his property. Definitely recommend!
