10/10 Wandering Star had SO much space for all of our friends to drive up in separate cars and have a good distance between tents. The lil boat set up was great for views of the lake & stargazing. It got pretty windy a few nights so I recommend posting up your tent near a structure/large bushes to help break the wind. We did see some snakes so make sure to keep your kids and pups safe. Nonetheless—We had a blast and Mark’s instructions were helpful. We didn’t need his help for anything during our stay but he let us know he could swing by if something did come up. We were a close drive to the lake & close to a market/gas station which was definitely nice. Also, the porty was clean.

Best camping trip I've ever had.
We loved the privacy and freedom of this side. We will absolutely be returning in the future!

Great view, lots of space, and total privacy. Firewood on site for a reasonable price, but there’s also a general store nearby with all the essentials, beer, ice, etc. We had some rain and heavy wind during our stay, but it made for some great stories. Also has a haunted storage shed. Overall 10/10, would camp here again.

The host was incredibly nice and we had an awesome time. Super close to a really gorgeous hike with beautiful views of the lake. Short drive to convenience store and the lake. Overall, we had a great experience. It did get pretty hot during the day and windy but we honestly lucked out pretty well with the weather.
