Shoreline Tent Camping
Great experience
What an awesome weekend. Our first time at Wilderness Shores was a great experience from start to finish with us planning our next trip before leaving . The hosts Paul ,Melinda, Thomas and others were so friendly and helpful. We loved the interaction with all the farm animals (baby goats!! Horses and Ferdinand ) and the atv tour with Paul of the property. The grounds and facilities were clean and so much space to roam . We will be back with a big group to do some primitive camping next!!!

This place is AMAZING! The animals are roaming freely around. The lakes are beautiful. We brought our bikes and couldn't believe how much property there was to explore. Would definitely recommend!!

Shoreline Tent Camping
Beautiful Property
The property is beautiful. Paul was very nice and helpful. He even brought firewood to our campsite. We fished, we explored and had a great time around the firepit. Our campsite was right on the water and my husband could fish from the campsite. The longhorns were beautiful as I had never seen one before. We had a great time and will return
