We bought the farmette with much work outside and home interior remodel to complete. We slowly turned the property into our family oasis. We neighbor a pasture with cows. There are free range chickens running around during the day. Geese greet us every evening and morning at the pond...as do the many bullfrogs. Occasionally you'll hear the coyotes, but then keep their distance. The stars shine peacefully and the sunsets are picturesque (most afternoons). The pond is a great place to swim and fish. The hillside is a nice walk for exercise or take the easier route and sit under the great oak tree in the other pasture. Campsites are off the road, behind our main home. You won't find a sign...we keep it simple.

Site 7: Afternoon Shade
The farm is PERFECT! It is so much better than even the pictures suggest. Our spot (#7 - Afternoon Shade) was very spacious, with a gorgeous huge tree, under which we spent many fine hours playing games at the picnic table. The pond was a true favorite. We set up chairs, let our dog on a long lead, and he spent the afternoons hunting bullfrogs and dreaming of catching the ducks. Staff member Johnny took great care of us, stopping by to check in and delivering delicious farm-fresh eggs we enjoyed 2 mornings. We're already talking about when we will return. All in all a perfect summer getaway.

Site 3: Friendly Central
Our experience overall was perfect for my fiancée and I. But, when the reviews say flies they mean it. Only one bathroom/shower house. Our spot was moved when we arrived which honestly was perfect for our set up and the o and off rain. But, the communication lacked a bit at arrival, and when purchasing eggs and firewood.

Site 2: McFadden's Neighbor
The host was helpful and kind. However, the sites are very close together and there is only one bathroom and shower for the entire campground. The pond was a lovely feature the kids enjoyed immensely.

Hosts very welcoming. Bathroom clean. Bullfrogs at sundown very entertaining. Unfortunately had to leave earlier than planned and didn't get to chat with the chickens. Might do next time.
