The hosts are some of the nicest people I've ever met, really! There were 3 spots to choose from with 1 more being made deeper in the woods. Amazing view of the Ohio River & you could walk down to the bank, a (currently) dry creek you could look for fossils in, and they took my kids on a golf cart ride for at least 30 mins lol. Provided an awesome fire pit with grilling grate we used to make pancakes on. The port-a-potty was super clean, and had foot pump hand washing station.

Definitely will be back!!

We stayed in a beautiful spot perched just above the Ohio River, when we arrived there was a fire already burning near a picnic table. The host loaned us a much needed wine opener and supplied us with enough wood for the evening and even a few logs for the next morning. The barges on the River were charming though not silent..we however live in a city and were undisturbed. The steep driveway which makes a beautiful location possible was a little tricky for our front wheel drive vehicle but not prohibitive. It was an Excellent stay !!!

Kathy and Scott’s piece of paradise had everything we needed to enjoy our stay (and so, so much more- like a port-a-potty with a hand-washing station).

Our site overlooked the river, which was golden in the evening and fog-shrouded in the morning. We watched for eagles (and saw one), read books, cooked over the fire pit and tracked the moon as it rose over the nearby pavilion.

Scott was friendly, warm, and filled with amazing stories. We could have chatted with him all day and into the evening.

We count ourselves as extremely lucky to have found this hidden, magical valley, and we cannot wait to return.

Get up early to catch the fog!Can’t beat this view!One of the two pavilions near our site.

This camp had everything I needed without the crowds in a state park facility. I choose a nice quiet site right on the river with plenty of room for me to play frisbee with my dog. The host was very accommodating and the site was exceptionally clean.
