This was our second time camping here, and I cannot recommend it enough. Jason is incredibly accommodating and helpful. The land itself is fantastic, huge open spaces plenty of campsite locations so easy for groups, prebuilt firepit with a cooking tripod, a deck, and the cleanest camping bathroom you could hope for. Great location for heading to nearby lakes and state parks. It's also less than 2 hours from Chicago! We will absolutely be back soon!

We had the most pressure free weekend I can remember after deciding at last minute to camp with our two kids at Jason and Megan’s. The accommodations were unique and fun if you love nature like we do. The fact that we had it all to ourselves was priceless. The only visitors were periodic wildlife that came to check us out. The shower was in fact cold but the use of it for running water was a great help. Jason was on point with helping and communicating. He and Megan, their neighbor and visitors were all so laid back and kind. Whether you have four people or a whole big group this place is so relaxing and away from it all. I would go again!

This baby deer came within about 15 ft of us and stood for a while!

I almost don’t want to write this so I can keep this gem of a hip camp for myself! This spot is perfect! My group of 6 adults and 8 kids (ages 5-10) had a blast. Here are the highlights for us:
- walking paths throughout the property that gave the kids freedom to roam
- an nearly perfect outhouse. Great distance away but not too far. Not stinky.
- access to a charcoal grill and fire pit with tripod. We love camping cooking and took advantage of the options
- a raised platform with 6 tables and chairs. Enough to have a cooking table, food table, water bottles table and a dining table.
- close access to tippecanoe state park
- hosts were thoughtful and easy to communicate with.

Thanks for the great stay!

What a magical place! The pics on here don't really capture the beauty of the place. Well kept lawns and paths, but still has the secluded feel with some nice trails through the forested areas. Jason was a great host, even buying us some ponchos when we had to load out in the rain. We will definitely be back and I highly recommend this place!

Jason was incredibly welcoming and his property is nothing shy of perfect. We had the whole place to ourselves for a group of 6 + 2 dogs and it could have probably accommodated a few dozen between the two campsites. The campsites are set towards the back of the property allowing for total privacy. Jason took our gear out there in a couple trips no problem with his tractor which made our lives easy.

The camping area we stayed in was clean, enormous, had two metal tables, a number of metal chairs, a charcoal grill, a firepit with cooking tripod and grate and a large, elevated wood platform. Jason was also generous enough to stock plenty of wood for us too.

We had a great time enjoying the trails cutting through the property and the beautiful sunsets from the swings at the second campsite area. And the outhouse was excellent as well.

We will absolutely be back!

BOOK IT NOW!! this was the highlight of our cross country trip so far! We considered staying at Michigan’s sand dunes but we tired of staying in large campgrounds and tried Jason’s spot. Let me tell you it was beautiful, inclusive and homie. This place is an absolute must if you are traveling through Indiana. Can’t wait to return one day.

Jason and Megan were AWESOME and their property was absolutely perfect. We had 23 people there for Labor Day weekend and we had the best time. Jason and Megan could not have been more hospitable. The toilet was the best I've seen at a campground and the privacy factor was huge. We loved that it was just our group and honestly their property could accommodate 3 times that many people. All the kids had so much fun running around and playing on the hiking trails. I could not recommend this place more. We go camping several times a year and this was our best experience yet! Thanks Jason and Megan!!

What an awesome spot. Lots of wild life back there if you’re lucky enough and quiet enough to see it. Jason and Megan are just awesome host. We love seeing them and hanging out with them. They do respect your privacy if that’s what you want. The pond was awesome. Was a bit hot when we went up but that shower is a huge game changer. Soo refreshing. Awesome spot we will be back.

If I could give more stars I would! Friendly and helpful host, the site was immaculate and it was a wonderful two nights. It is a hike to get to the site so I recommend a wagon, but Jason the host has a tractor and is more than happy to help ferry stuff to the site. There were 5 us and we all give 5 stars.
