Magical Campsite!
Ken was extremely hospitable and our campsite by the creek was amazing. I was working on a campfire dinner after dark and noticed twinkling blue-green glowing lights on the ground along the path leading to and within the campsite. A quick google search told me they were firefly larvae and it happens in the fall when conditions are just right. Most amazing thing I have ever seen. So magical. Thank you, Ken, for sharing with us.

The host was very responsive in replying to my phone calls and checked to make sure I was settled after arrival. This location was quite remote so make sure to arrive before dark, otherwise it might be difficult to find. I only was there to spend the night before continuing on, but it appeared to be a lovely wooded property with trails for walking.

We loved it!
We had a great stay. Ken was super welcoming and the camp site was beautiful. We several owls and an otter within the first 30 minutes. It is a bit of a walk to the camp site from where you park, but Ken provided a wheelbarrow to help get stuff down to the site. As long as you are prepared for the 3-5 minute walk to the camp site, it is absolutely worth the trip.

Incredibly patient and attentive host. I came in so late and kept getting lost but he guided me aright.
