The host was very helpful and got us to the site. The site itself was beautiful and had lots of frogs and minnows to watch.

Perfect spot for a one nighter. We really enjoyed the peaceful pond sights and sounds. Fireflies everywhere, frogs, birds, fish flopping in the pond. Dustin has it all set up for campers. Nice fire ring in the grass. Fresh water was a plus. But the bonus we got lucky enough to enjoy was a perfect view of the blood moon lunar eclipse. Amazing!

Dustin’s place was awesome I took my son and dog and we had an awesome campfire. We even caught about 10 bass in the lake our days were made. Definitely want to come back.

Love the little pond. Was pleasantly surprised by how secluded it was. Loved the roosters in the morning

We camped here overnight in a campervan after some heavy rain. The ground was softer than we expected and the van got stuck. Dustin is an awesome host and came and pulled us out of the mud with his truck. The property itself was quite pretty and super quiet. Would highly recommend!
