If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
This is a VERY unique opportunity to camp about 20 paces from a ravine with a waterfall (during rainy weather) . Your hosts are helpful and try to accommodate reasonable requests. I enjoyed speaking with the hosts and should you want to talk they have lead interesting libes
I was amazed by the uniqueness of the landscape, warm hospitality from Mr.Martin and his son David. It’s that feeling when the people and the place exceed your expectations.
Nature helped me take a break from the routine of days,fill with energy and get closer to the origins of nature.
My great gratitude for the opportunity to breathe clean air and enjoy silence.
Hope to come back soon.
Pleasant and private camping
From the secluded spot in the woods next to a small waterfall, we heard a large variety of different animal sounds ranging from coyotes to roosters. We even had an owl hooting in the tree directly above our fire. Martin and his wife provided us with firewood and were very helpful with directions even with our arriving late in the night.
Pristine and beautiful heartland
Martin has shared a gem! Martin is a kind and aware host of a most beautiful location. You can drive right up to his clearing in the forest, and hear no traffic. We heard wild turkeys, woodpeckers, wolves and more. There is a set of trees for a hammock. Martin put in a simple firepit, and is generous with firewood. A short wooded walk behind the campsite is a ravine with a waterfall, just like the public turkey run park -- but untouched! (There was only a trickle of water in late spring) This is no tourist location; on the way to Martin's site we passed a few amish carriages, farmland, past log cabins, and through historic covered bridges (look up a covered bridge guide - a few are on route!), and real people who know their neighbors in hilly forest and farmland. We had no cell phone reception in the area - except perfect reception at the site :)
Caveat: We got lost on the way to our campsite, and Martin drove out to rescue us (thank you!) Even the main roads are mostly gravel (we saw many local people driving ATVs), gps/google maps cannot find the location. The street names have numbers in them, and have all recently changed as well. *Be sure to ask for thorough directions and a map*!!
I hope you take time to find this place!
