We will definitely come back!
What a beautiful place to stay! David greeted us at the cabin when we arrived and showed us everything we needed to know for a relaxing weekend! Camp David has everything you need to enjoy your stay from endless firewood and cooking supplies, to gallons of water stations and touletries! It was nice to have David stop by and check on us throughout our stay and learn more about the property. The trees were changing colors and falling throughout the weekend, landing on the river and drifting downstream, a beautiful sight to see while you drink your coffee on the porch in the morning! Would highly recommend visiting! There is a nice dog park close by too if you are thinking about bringing pets!

Great Place!!!
The campsite with the cabin was exceptionally beautiful! It is right on the gorgeous Tipppecanoe River. The chair swings beside the best campfire? Perfect! So fun. And that warm & cozy cabin after spending a fantastic evening, enjoying the river, or campfire? Unbelievable! The campfire: the host provided a beautiful fire pit, and WAY more wood that anyone would need. Just SWEET!!!!

Peaceful Riverside Retreat!
David is a super-nice person as well as an excellent and very attentive host, making sure we were well-supplied with water, offering us canoes to take down the river, etc. The cabin itself -- while advertised as "rustic" -- is immaculate and very well-equipped, including a generator for anyone who needs it. Plenty to do in the surrounding area, but also a great place to just hang out, enjoy the scenery, and relax. Weather permitting, also highly recommend taking a float down the Tippecanoe River!

Cabin trip for the weekend!
Had a great second trip down to Camp David. Enjoyed every second of it. Highly recommend the river float, you won’t regret it. Also make sure to take a trip to the Harvest Moon deli and market, their food is amazing. The cabin has all the amenities you could ask for on a camping trip. Compost toilet, fire pit, on the water, big porch and lots of yard to run around in. We can’t wait to go back!

Private & Relaxing Cabin
Camp David is such a great spot, it was exactly what we were looking for & easily the best spot we have found out of all our family trips- super private! Great view of the river from deck & sitting on dock was so relaxing, my husband caught a big carp in the river, our toddler found a fuzzy caterpillar, & our baby enjoyed the swings by the fire. We spotted turkeys & raccoons during our stay, and I got barely any mosquitos bites (I usually get eaten alive). Host was very welcoming & even brought us wine, we appreciated the thought that went into providing helpful things like coffee mugs, lanterns, air mattresses, lighters, water jugs, & the grill above the fire especially. We can’t wait to come back!

This place is amazing! Unfortunately we were not there long enough! My son had a bass fishing tournament so early the next day that we didn't get to enjoy much. But we are CERTAINLY coming back soon!

Best Hip Camp in Indiana
As always, Camp David did not disappoint. Fishing was fire! River was refreshing to swim in. Wood provided was more than you could ever use in one night. Provided air mattress was comfy. So many chairs- no need to bring your only. Bugs were so minimal we never even broke out our spray. Wish people would quit booking so we could stay here ever weekend! :-) Will def make a 4th, 5th….and 100th trip!

Excluded paradise! David has thought of it all! We had the perfect sister/ family weekend here. He dropped us off with kayaks and canoes, we did a three hour river float and landed back at the cabin. There was everything we needed and more at the cabin. We will be coming back!

Relaxing on the River
We joked that we almost hated to let anyone else know what a wonderful and special place is Camp David, but I think the secret is already out! What a great Hipcamp experience. David is such a welcoming and gracious host; you feel like you're visiting a friend. A friend who also happens to be sharing his amazing river camp. Such a labor of love! And so many ingenious space savers in his table and seating designs. Everything is neat and clean. The river is right there. Humans enjoyed dinners on the deck, evenings by the fire, and a great river float from the public access to the Camp. Pups enjoyed exploring off leash, playing at the riverbank, games of frisbee and ball on the lawn, and keeping the area patrolled for bugs, small animals, and dropped crumbs of food.

Cabin on the river
David is a great host. He checked on us every day & gave us Asparagus from his garden. You can put in up river & paddle back to the cabin, or drop car off down river & paddle from cabin to your car. This is a very nice no frills one room cabin. There is a generator if you need power. We didn’t use it. No running water. Which means you 💩 in a 🪣. Perfect for a couple guys who needed a base camp for our Kayaking adventure

Definitely Will Be Back!
David's spot was better than I expected! He had everything you could think of, a generator, firewood, airmatress, folding chairs, even a french press and coffee! Plenty of space both in the cabin and around the property. If you have an anxious dog, you can hear "booms" from people hunting from afar though. I plan to be back this summer to enjoy the river more since youre right by it! There was also a lot of nature preserves/trails 5-25 minutes from the Cabin.

10/10 Would Recommend!!
David and his son-in-law were there to greet us when we arrived. They explained everything about the cabin and the surrounding area. They are both extremely kind and made the stay so much more enjoyable. The cabin itself is perfect for a weekend away. There is plenty of room to spread out and they have two air mattresses you can use too! There is a galley kitchenette with some counter space for food prep. There is plenty of room out on the deck for cooking and grilling as well. The heat in the cabin can really get going so you shouldn’t have to layer up too much on cold nights. Outside the cabin is a great fire pit area with plenty of wood and places to relax. There are two large porches for sitting out in the sun and seating is plentiful! The cabin sits right on the river so you can fish to your heart’s content. My group brought kayaks and paddle boards and we took David’s recommendation of doing the two hour float. The drop spot was only about ten minutes away so going back to get our car wasn’t a big deal. The river itself is fairly shallow, averaging probably 2-6 feet in depth through the length of the float. We only had to go around 1 or 2 obstacles. The float was the highlight of our trip! David and Glenn had plenty of recommendations for other activities and places to eat in town as well. David’s daughter even left us an Easter basket!! I can’t wait to go back and share this excellent location with some more friends!!

Incredible Paradise!!! A Must Stay!
Paradise! Absolute Paradise! My girlfriend Kathy and I REALLY enjoyed staying at Camp David. David was the MOST wonderful host! He made sure we had everything we needed from freshwater to firewood, he even allowed us to use his canoe and facilitated a wonderful trip down the Tippecanoe river for us. I have done a LOT of camping in my life and David's version was an incredible experience that will live with me for all time. The property was absolutely beautiful and VERY well-manicured. I am requesting a day or two off work to go back in the next few weeks. So you better book now or I'm going to! See you again very soon David. Thank you for your kindness and for allowing us to stay at your cabin.

Best spot all summer!
An absolute gem! The property is peaceful, private, beautiful, and right on the water (as described). We used Apple Maps for directions and it got us pretty close to the right spot. A quick call to the property owner (David we really enjoyed meeting you) and we were there a minute later. Fishing was great. We caught several catfish, carp, soft shell turtles, and blue gills. The property offers a great grill outside (propane included), wood, 1 large air mattress, enough chairs for a small army, a nice fire pit with a swing around grate for cooking, a creative indoor bathroom, access to water (although no showers available), a radio, a tea pot, and just the right amount of nature and peace.

Beautiful spot overlooking the river. We arrived a few days after heavy rain and the river had just receded, by left a swarm of mosquitoes. We weren't able to be outside enough to fully enjoy it, but we will be back in the fall.

David was the most wonderful host. He made sure we had absolutely everything we needed and went way above and beyond to make sure myself and my 4 kiddos were comfortable during our stay. The cabin is secluded and beautiful .. right on the river. The 2 back balconies were gorgeous and had more than enough room for us to spread out and relax He even left us a sweet gift the morning we departed on my car. It was a family of 5 hand carved deer I was deeply touched that he took the time to do this for us. My youngest 2 adored David and were so happy to take home a memory of our stay Thank you David so so so much for sharing your beautiful home with us ♥️
