Private creekside location
Really neat site along a shallow creek (with a small waterfall for that extra special touch). The site is well treed for shade and additional privacy. Hard to imagine it鈥檚 an in town location. There were a few barking dogs and 鈥榗ity鈥 sounds, but didn鈥檛 take away from the privacy. Would definitely stay here again.

Great spot! We had the place to ourselves at the end of December. Area was clean and well cared for. Johnny is a nice guy, easy to get ahold of and follows through on what he says. Thanks!

Off the grid campground. No facilities. Make preparations for that. Preordered firewood and it was delivered to my campsite.

We were looking for a rustic campground with no RVs and this was exactly that! Johnny was very welcoming. The setting is idyllic. We were there during Geode Fest and it was still quiet and private at the campsite.

I love how secluded and private my campsite was. I had access to the creek and everything I needed was close at hand. Johnny came by to check on me and make sure I had everything I needed and gave me advise on finding geodes.
