Quiet, shaded but not ideal
Porta potty was filled to the top, and couldn’t use Owners were not onsite, just working crew We paid for “feeding the animals” but no one was there to provide activity, lost out on that money Kiddo liked the trampoline. Quiet/ shaded but wouldn’t have been private if there were other people camping next to us.

Tons of space, but not the best
Porta potty was gross. Filled to the top. We paid for a “feeding” experience but didn’t have service to get in contact with anyone until we left… owner was not onsite, and the workers had no clue Overall, spot was ok for us. Big, open, shady space, but not private, if someone camps the same night as you. We were lucky, and had no one else camping next to us. The kiddo enjoyed the trampoline.

Trespassing Vibes
This campsite isn’t as advertised. The location is beautiful and it has a lot of potential, but it almost felt like the campsite wasn’t really prepared for visitors. There were no welcoming instructions or anybody to welcome us. Porter potty had not been cleaned in months, we had no idea where the campsites were supposed to be, so just pitched our tent on the grass. The gas bbq that was in the pictures didn’t work, which meant we had a pretty sad, cold dinner. No fires allowed in the fire pit, so that was a bit of a bummer as well. There was a maintenance worker who was very friendly and helped us out with a couple of necessities luckily. We booked 2 nights, but only ended up staying one. Just not the atmosphere we were looking for. Pretty disappointing. Camping here felt a bit like trespassing. I wouldn’t go back.

Good Experience but ...
The campsite feels secure but less private due to adjacent campsites. The campsite assistant is very friendly and does his best to make us feel comfortable. The animal farm and farm raised eggs are a must try. Wifi is satellite based, so expect to have interruptions during windy or cloudy days. Definitely no mobile network. However, the host needs to ensure that portable toilet is regularly serviced as it was in an undesirable state. QUIET HOURS need to be enforced due to some guests loud conversations past midnight. Campsite 1 and 3 are preferred overall due to shade and ground.

Weekend stay!
Had an amazing time! The owner was very communicative about not just the directions to get there, but making sure that the activities(archery and visiting the farm animals) went very well! Was very much given a free reign of the property while there and was able to enjoy our visit peacefully while taking in the lovely scenery. There was very minimal light as well so being able to star gaze was amazing and definitely recommend anyone who stays to stay up late to enjoy the view! Overall had an amazing time and intend on booking the property again in the future!

Glamping Tent
Great for groups of various sizes!
Well off the beaten path, and nestled in the trees along a creek, this is a great option for groups especially. We ended up staying in the cabins, both the 2 bedroom - very simple, no frills, 2 bedrooms and a bathroom, no common seating area inside. But there’s a hot plate, microwave and mini fridge, as well as a great deck to sit by the creek. We also stayed in the 1 bedroom which has a full kitchen, “fireplace”-heater, washer/dryer, dishwasher, etc. this unit has modern furniture and neat features like barn doors, and a large covered front porch where we sat and watched the rain pouring down. Those units share a thin common wall, so keep that in mind. I’m not sure of the origin story of the property, but there are some quirky design elements/choices that will make you wonder as well. There is a very large grassy area where I loved running around and playing with my dog. It could use a good deep clean, but overall it’s would definitely recommend this place for groups especially.
