Beautiful experience
This was my first experience using Hipcamp while my bf and I are traveling cross country and the stay at Carol’s was really lovely! Her and Walt were so welcoming, accommodating and kind. Made friends with their sweet kitty Ray who was our buddy for the stay, we will miss him dearly! The yard was filled with beautiful plants and was cozy, Carol was kind enough to teach us some things about them. Great people and we felt very safe there, would definitely return again if in the area!

Great Experiences
Carol hosted 7 of us. Felt like I was in a fairy garden 🧚‍♀️ 🌸. Amazingly kind and sweet. Taught us a lot about plants and made me fall back in love with nature again. Was a trip that I’m certain others would enjoy.

There is a lovely camper and garden there to tent. There are several great places to eat in the shade of the beautiful trees and gardens. Our dog wandered safely on the property without issue or creating one. Carol gave us a lovely tour of the plants she is growing and what they do to help your body. We had arrived late in the evening but Carol sent us clear information about how to access the garden and helped us out immensely.

Definitely coming back.
Carol was a very kind hearted wise woman I learned a lot of about the plants and herbs she grows here! The area was very relaxing and beautiful. Everywhere you look there’s something to learn about and admire. A lovely fire pit sits at the center of a resting place with hammocks and seats. Very cozy and welcoming. This was by far one of my favorite experiences! Carol is also very helpful if you are a first time camper and is willing to accommodate with whatever you need she even took time to show me a cozy little bar/ restaurant down the road. The area is beautiful and it’s definitely worth checking out and experiencing on your own!

A Hidden Gem
Carol’s Avalon Unity Garden was absolutely breathtaking! We were in need of a place to stay for the night as we are traveling across the country and her Garden captivated us immediately. The smells of herbs and fresh greenery are endless and Carol has provided a cozy, comfortable hammock and fire pit area to enjoy it all. Carol greeted us warmly and took the time to give us an educated tour of her garden and the magic that envelops the property. Her art sculptures from recycled materials were inspiring, a must see. At night the garden is aglow with fireflies and lights. Easy to say this spot was the perfect spot to recoup for another day of driving. Carol was so kind to allow us to stay in her RV that was available which allowed us a comfortable bed after having been camping for a week prior. Carol also educated us about the composting toilet in the rv and it was great to learn how efficient that method is. All in all, don’t pass up this spot if you’re looking for a hidden oasis to recharge and connect with Mother Earth. Thank you Carol!

Carol's garden oasis was incredible! She was very welcoming and gave me a tour of the garden, made me a fire, and ensured I had a wonderfully comfortable and joyful experience. I will definitely be back for another visit. Thank you Carol!
