Ellen’s place was amazing. There were plenty places to hike and explore for the kids all day. She gave us a great tour when we first checked in and she made us feel extremely welcomed. We will be heading back again for sure.

Staying on Ellen’s property was incredible! She was so sweet and had two incredible campsites to choose from. The hammocks in the cave were a favorite. Would definitely come back!

Rock On!
We visited Ellen's land during an "excessive heat" warning weekend, which made us initially hesitant as to the upcoming challenges. However, directions to the site were clear, and we were grateful that owner Ellen was still up the night that we arrived, providing us an essential overview despite our very late arrival. Shade was limited during the day and summer heat got very real (~100 deg)! Finding the rock cave with the hammocks (just a short walk from the camp site) was such a relief! My family, including toddler and pup, all took a refreshing nap in the cave oasis. At night, star gazing was amazing, and night temp was comfortable (~66 deg). Not too many bothersome insects, although there seemed to be ant nests near the picnic table and other more level site (they can crawl up and leave a lingering bite). We appreciated being able to have our pup off leash, but as the owner's dogs occasionally ventured over to our site, we did have to be vigilant of the dogs' dynamics. Overall, our use of the multi-acre property felt private, almost exclusive, and was memorable!
