Fern Dell
FIVE STARS!!!
I rarely leave reviews for airbnb or similar rentals because I don't really have an interest in leaving someone a bad review, but if I'm being honest I'm usually underwhelmed. This campsite exceeded all of my expectations. We loved everything about our stay. The hosts clearly took time and energy to create a space that is very functional and very comfortable for guests. The welcome guide they left in the tent is the most helpful and informative guidebook I've ever seen in a rental anywhere. Note: there are no pictures of the bathrooms in the listing, which concerned me, but they are comfortable and very CLEAN.

Black Fox Den Glampsite of the Northwoods
I loved the area and the campsite that Michelle and Max setup. True wildlife and area are very beautiful. When we arrived, we were greeted by both Michelle and Max and they told us of things to do and places to visit around the area. Would definitely recommend for anyone visiting hot springs to book here!

Black Fox Den Glampsite of the Northwoods
A really lovely and comfortable campsite, so beautifully appointed. Max and Michelle were very communicative and helpful! I loved seeing all the deer and hearing the insects and owls at night, and the birdsong in the morning. A highlight was seeing a Pileated woodpecker. I was very grateful I could bring my pup, too!
