This spot on our land is known for its many stunning sunsets! Kansas just might have some of the best sunsets..

You will have access to 6.33 acres of private prairie and wooded trails which Includes our 8 arce lake. Our canoe and 2 kayaks are available for rent upon request.

Just a couple miles up the road is Hillsdale Lake (The 14th largest lake in Kansas! It’s huge at 7 square miles). There are lots of trails and activities in the area.

Directions / Parking: When finding our driveway off of 265th turn into the driveway on the West of the two driveways (the one up the hill) and drive all the way back past the house on the left. You will see signs to park. There will be a short trail to the Northwest to the tent spots.

About the Hosts: In the Mainhouse nearby where you park lives Nissa and Ben along with 3 boys, 1 Pomeranian (Josie), and 4 cats: Bat (the mamma), Diamond Bear (Bat’s daughter), and Shadow and Besitos (Bats sons (two black cat brother twins)). They are all very friendly and may say hello but please NO PETS as this is a Sanctuary for us as well as these animals.

Quiet hours are 10pm - 7am.

Let us know if you have any questions or special requests :) We look forward to hosting you!

The campsite was a bit small for our 5 person group, but we made do. The campsites are also kinda close to the house. The grass for the site itself was cut but around the campsite is waist high so be ready to get into some deep grass if your tent is going to sit on it. There is a lot of foresty land that stretches back along a stream to their lake. The trails are good, just watch out for occasional spots of poison ivy.
Nissa is very nice, she offered to let us use her canoe on the lake. She has a few cats and a small dog that roam the area. The pets are friendly, though be ready for them to climb up your tent's rain fly in rain!
Overall it was a great experience, only complaints would be the campsite being a little small and a bit closer to the house than we expected.
