The land was very pretty and Ben was super helpful and responsive. We loved taking the rowboat out on the pond and enjoyed hearing and seeing the wildlife (deer, turkeys, rabbits, birds, frogs). It was nice to be the only campers- so relaxing and peaceful.

Thanks for hosting us! We got in really late and Benjamin made it easy to find the site. It was a great time and a easy camp spot

So Quiet and Private :)
Benjamin’s site is absolutely beautiful! If you like sleeping in a quiet, private place, this is it. The site is very well shaded from the surrounding oaks and the sunsets are beautiful and I think the only thing it needs is leveling out and clearing some brush. Otherwise I plan on coming back as there are acres and acres to explore.
