Second stay at 99 Bottles! The host(s) are very friendly and helpful. The spot is quiet and peaceful. Great spots for sunrises or sunsets. The grounds and facilities are clean and well maintained. And the wine is delicious!

Mark and June are superb hosts! The campground is clean and well-outfitted, bathrooms and showers have plenty of hot water, prairie/vineyard/farm views are expansive and the sky at night is stunning. There are mowed paths throughout the property which keeps the wild areas vibrant and abundant. Each campsite is unique and offer the right balance of privacy and community.
Site 1: Centrally located, closest to the bathrooms/showers. with power and a large overhead light, lots of grass. Great for Car/Tent camping, a camper/trailer, or Class B or C RV.
Site 2: Separated from Site 1 by a small bank of trees, with a mowed path connecting them, this site is on the gravel parking lot. With power, it's ideal for a Class A, B or C RV, or a camper/trailer.
Site 3: A little more out in the open, Site 3 would outfit the Glamper, much like Site 2.
Site 4: No power, this one is more remote and private, tucked down into a little valley, protected by trees and slopes. Ideal for car/tent or a Class B RV (off-grid).
Site 5: No power, this one is also more remote and private, like Site 4, except that it's perched up on a hill with fantastic views of the property and surrounding area. Best for car/tent or Class B (off-grid).
Site 6: With power, and views, best for car/tent or Class B or C or trailer.
Site 7: This one also has power, I think?. It's situated a little farther away from the others up on a hill, great views. Best for Car/tent or Class B or C RV or trailer.

Mark is the kindest, most grounded host. He was incredibly patient with our little kids (5 kids aged infant to 5 years), helping them find the kittens, feed the cows and pick grapes. He made us feel so welcome. The property and campsites are immaculately kept, with beautiful attention to detail around the trails and campground. The bathrooms and shower are high quality, a really nice touch which we appreciated after several days of camping across the US. Out of our ten day road trip, this was the most relaxing and serene stop. We stayed two days and I could have easily stayed for a week. It's hard to put my finger on what makes this stay so special. Everything was just perfect and really special.
