Nice quiet, well kept camp ground just off of I 80. There is some noise from the highway but we could not hear it inside our rig. Overall, we would definitely stay here again

This place is super cute! Nice playground area and fire pit. Small amount of interstate traffic noise but nothing that bothers. Nice clean shower and bathroom! Really friendly hosts! Would definitely stay here again!

Brenda and Dave were so nice and welcoming. The grounds were beautiful. The site was closer to I80 than expected, but it was really a non-issue. Felt secluded and road noise was not noticeable. Everything was amazingly clean and well kept.

this park is meticulously maintained, well laid out, easy to navigate a medium size rig(speaking from experience as thats what i have, 27ft trailer). On top of that, it is beautiful! After several long days on the road and pulling into Shadybrook as a last minute plan, waking up here was an absolute pleasure

Hipcamper Samantha

This was our second year staying at Shady Brook and we are once again so glad we did! The campsite is so well-maintained and clean, and the electrical hookups are easy. Dave always shows his guests in to their site. The grounds are beautiful - we walked in the rain and it was so calm and serene. Excellent place to stay off I-80!!!
