I highly recommend checking this place out!

Sunny (and everyone else on site) was so welcoming and kind! There are two friendly dogs living there who also greeted me upon arrival :)

I had the pleasure of staying in the Redtail Yurt! It was wonderful. Pretty secluded. Surrounded by trees. There is a lovely little deck to relax on and a fire pit area. It’s definitely a cozy camp spot!

There were other camping options that also looked nice on the property. Some very pretty spots for tents by the river, and a second yurt, all looked like they’d be nice places to be too.

Sunny also offers astrology readings on site. I highly recommend spending an hour with her! It was lovely! We sipped tea and went into my birth chart while sitting under the trees and hanging out with the chickens, etc. Sunny is very intuitive and insightful, and it was fun!

Great experience! I hope to be near Kansas City again sometime. I’d definitely make a return visit!

It was a fantastic stay! Sunny was an amazing host along with all the others that were there, it was very welcoming. The yurt has no power or water which made for a fun time without such luxury’s we take for granted. They had a ‘camp shower’ where you would shower outside from a bag, had an amazing time and really took the heat off of us! The yurt itself is very spacious and nice for camping. Lots of trails and had an amazing time for our anniversary. ❤️ Show up in the morning and you’ll get to see the cute little goats and chickens they’ve got.

We stayed in the Yurt for our 10-month-old daughter's first camping trip! Sunny and Martin were wonderful hosts. Everything was clean and welcoming. We thoroughly enjoyed hiking the property, and our 10-month-old loved the baby goats and chickens that we could visit while we were there. The yurt was huge and very comfortable for two adults, the 10-month-old and her pack-and-play, and our dog. The property was easy to find (thanks to excellent provided directions), and the relatively close proximity to Pomona lake gave us an easy day for a "bigger" adventure. We are definitely already thinking about when we can go back again!

I stayed the first night of a road trip in the yurt with my two young boys and wish we could have stayed at least another. We were welcomed upon arrival and greeted periodically by friendly people and a sweet dog. We fell asleep to the sounds of owls and woke up to song birds. The Light Center is a peaceful and delightful camp that we would definitely visit again.

Leigh and her two boys were a delight for us to host. They were so wonderful and took great care of the Red Tail Yurt. We look forward to seeing them again in the future.

My partner and I had a fantastic stay at the Light Center! The yurt was spacious with a comfortable bed, and the heaters were able to keep us warm even in the cold February night. We're novice campers, but everyone was extremely kind and willing to lend a hand; Martin even helped us start a fire and gave us pointers. The campsite itself was in a beautiful wooded area with lots of sunlight, and cute dogs roamed the center and kept us company. :) Thank you so much Sunny and Martin for letting us stay at your beautiful site!
