There are 2 houses somewhat visible through the trees but no direct line of sight and otherwise private. May see us feeding animals or tending garden. There is also a livestock guardian dog (Cotton) on property, we just ask that you please do not feed her or leave food/trash laying around for her to find.  Ask us about purchasing a bag of fresh meat or veggies from our market garden Henrysmarketindiana.com

Justin has a very nice property, and the campsite area is next to a large chicken coop where a gorgeous rooster roams freely. It is also very near a pig pen, so unfortunately the close proximity to both enclosures made for an unpleasant smell. The fire pit is within feet of the coop, so you smell their waste as you enjoy the fire. The electrical box/outlet was loaded with ant or termite nests of some sort and lots of them inside, along with loads of dried up grass stuffed into it as well. The electricity didn't work, so our fan never got to be used. We set up our tent, started our fire, cooked our food, broke down our tent and fire, packed up and left before Justin got back to us about the electricity.
The heat was too much, the smell was too much, and we were absolutely exhausted from kayaking. We ended up going home instead of staying the night.
I don't want this to be considered a negative review, just because we had a poor experience. Justin was great, we met him upon arrival because there were no signs instructing us where to go and due to my own negligence my phone got ruined, so I couldn't access the directions on HipCamp. He told us where to go and where the water spicket and electrical box is located, he gave us his cell number and he answered promptly when I called about the electric- however he was away at the time. I fault him for nothing, & all things can be improved upon. 4/5

This guest did have a tough time. They were unable to find the directions initially then lost them. They chose the fire pit next to my mobile chicken coop that was being used to fertilize the area instead of the site 100 yards further back into the cove. They left before I could get back to turn the braker on. (And get rid of the mouse nest in the electrical box). It was probably a good thing they left because we butchered those pigs at 6am the next morning (YAY no more pig smell)

Justin was a good communicator and directions were clear. We had a nice flat spot to camp-peaceful camping!

Justin and family are nice hosts. Nice quite spot, conveniently off road to my destination. Perfect for my quick overnight needs.

The space was really good but there was some confusion about the spigot water supply and electrical. I felt a little weird asking after being asked if I really needed electricity. But the space was beautiful and nice, unfortunately we got rained out which had nothing to do with Justin and his family. But there is the tiniest sign that points toward the proper campsite that we missed first coming in. And then he’s really cute dog cotton, whom we’re not supposed to feed, was over at our campsite every single chance that she got. That made it a little uncomfortable because she was not supposed to eat anything and we were not supposed to feed her but she seemed to be getting fed from somebody’s table because she was all over our space looking for food sniffing at everything and then she went into our tent as I was closing it down and like I said we got rained out. So you can imagine the amount of mud I had to clean up so it did piss me off quite a bit. And it didn’t matter what I said our command I used she just was not listening at all. But camping in and of itself on that property was good.

This guest was thoroughly confused upon arrival despite clear instructions. There is a small sign pointing to the cove, this is on top of the very detailed directions provided as well as a gps marked satellite map. Guest still had issues locating listing and instead was unloading kids and camping supplies on the table in front of the barn where Airbnb guests were staying. Cotton ignores those who ignore her but when children play with her she will hang out in camp, especially when she is getting food. Keep this in mind if cotton visits you during your stay.

Great place would definitely stay again. Will note you can hear traffic from the near highway but it dies down after 8pm. There is some dogs off in the distance that like to talk through the night but didn’t bother me much.

I only stayed one night but I would definitely come back. The property is so pretty and you are secluded enough at the site.

Justin was a great host, and had great communication. He even reached out to us ahead of time to make sure we knew how things were looking after a bad storm the night before. Would definitely recommend.

Justin's site was amazing! A beautiful drive through a corn field opens up into a little wooded clearing. There was a fire ring, stars, and solitude. I will absolutely camp here again!
