I would highly recommend this campsite. The views were beautiful and there’s a big grassy open spot to play frisbee or lawn games and it was peaceful and quiet. After reading the other reviews -we brought our own fire pit and a table. There are no picnic tables but there actually was a spot for a campfire. Thank you Drew! We plan to come back.

This site was incredibly beautiful and secluded. There is a nice shower house and indoor bathrooms, a fire pit and water right on the site. You can drive right up to the edge of the camping field. The only downside is the amount of mosquitoes that show up at night, but that’s to be expected as it’s near the lake. Recommend this site if you have a dog!

The campsite that I booked was beautiful. A large field of grass for plenty of room to spread out, fire pit close by and electric (110 amp, need adapter for rv/camper van) and water.
No one approached us when we arrived so we searched around and found the area we reserved. The views of Tuttle Creek Lake really were amazing.

The second day after breakfast we headed out to get on the lake. As we arrived, I received a text from Drew about a change in our campsite. He asked that we come back so he could get us to the 'right place' due to a wedding that evening. We returned and had to move our three tents and a canopy across the property to a site without electric or water.

Drew shared his mistake for double booking the space and did everything he good to accommodate us at the new space. He attempted running multiple hoses and extension cords from the house to keep my camper van (and fridge of food) running for the duration.

All in all we would love to return to the original camp spot we booked. It was private and stocked with amenities. I would just recommend extensive communication with Drew about expectations before arrival. The mishap was an honest mistake but really interrupted the weekend's plans and wore us out in the hot sun.

**Only thing missing from the property is lake access, which we drove twenty minutes away to enjoy. Still- we would camp here again

I was so happy to find this place! Couldn’t imagine a place more peaceful and beautiful to be. Drew was very friendly and communicative through text and the property is just gorgeous. I slept in the field under the stars and it was glorious. Far exceeded my expectations!

This spot was incredible. The view was prob one of the best on our 5000 mile trip...sorry Grand Tetons got ya beat. ;-) The property is a gem which seems to be used as a wedding venue often, which means you have access to real bathrooms and fresh water.
