Sonny Hills camp
Highly recommended
We had a wonderful time at Sunny Hills during the solar eclipse. We spent 4 nights here. The hosts, Jennifer and John were very accommodating and welcoming. They went above and beyond with a little care package with snacks, extra eclipse glasses and informative literature about the nearby national forest as well as all the local emergency services numbers. Their five dogs (4 of them were Irish Wolfhounds) were also welcoming and very mild mannered. We loved them! We camped in our 5th wheel right in front of their little fishing lake, and basically had free roam of their 70 acres. We highly recommend this beautiful piece of heaven and would definitely like to go back.

Peaceful private and so serene!
I recently took my first solo camping trip at Sonny Hills and it was so peaceful, private and relaxing! John and Jennifer are both such incredible people and I’m so thankful to have found such a neat camping spot! They included firewood during the stay and kept an eye out to make sure I made it home after each day of solo hiking! Jennifer even joined me on a day of hiking! I’m so pleased with my experience! I am already planning my next trip out!
