“We don’t affiliate with Hipcamp”
I never found the place. Host’s phone was disconnected and said that he did not affiliate with hip camp. both the directions and how to contact the sites via Hipcamp lead me no where. Beware.

Site 1 - RV'ing W/Elec at site Water to fill
Site 1 with RV and dog
Lovely small campground. Site 1 was well shaded with easy access to mowed trails and a creek for my dog to run loose. Clean bathroom and shower with easy access on gravel road from the highway. Yes, road noise but I consider it a “white noise” so it didn’t bother me and with the AC running, I didn’t hear it in the trailer. Highly recommend.
