Great place near the bourbon trail
Beautiful property to stay at! My wife daughter and I had a great time! David was very responsive to all of my messages and was nice enough to get us firewood at the last minute. Would definitely recommend and will be back!

We loved Tent camping on this land! It was easy to get to and so spacious. The little bathroom provided was a huge help and nice to have. David was a great host, bringing up firewood before we got there, and adding a 5 gallon jug of water was helpful for cleaning dishes, washing hands, etc. Would recommend!!

Campsite on the lake
Our campsite by the lake on David’s property was perfect. Great scenic views, privacy, and easy to access. It was nice to wake up hearing a rooster crow, and the sounds of cows walking out to pasture. I would definitely recommend this site.

Birthday camping trip.
This was our first tent camping trip for a girls night out/birthday party. We were extremely impressed with the site, it was amazing! Plenty of room, we had 7 tents and 4 cars. They had a paddle boat, fishing boat and kiyak on the water surrounding the camp site, we had plenty of room to set up all our games we brought. There was water, a table and chairs already at the site as well as a latrine near. Unfortunately the rain put a damper on our plans late in the evening and my car was stuck in the mud. David and Chelsea were absolutely amazing, they pulled my vehicle out of the mud and we nice enough to let our kids see their horses the next day. We really appreciated their kindness and hospitality which added to such an amazing campsite. I can’t say enough about the campsite and the hosts . We definitely plan to come back to enjoy such an amazing space again. Thank you all so much!

The Lonewolf on KY River
River site is quiet and secluded
The hosts were very good communicators, checking in on us at setup and during the night while a large storm rolled in (but I had no signal with Verizon down at the site so I didn't get anything until we were leaving in the morning). and the site was nice overlooking the river. Tip: a midsize truck is the largest size you should take down the trail to the river site due to sandy-mud. Must be off-road capable, with four wheel drive, and all terrain tires if possible. Bring traction boards if you have them. It torrentially downpoured on us all night and our truck got stuck in the muddy sand at the site, but we used our traction boards to step out little by little. It wasn't difficult though and didn't detract from our experience.. that's part of overlanding, right? 😊 Loved how quiet and secluded the site was, and how absolutely serene it was drinking coffee while watching the mist roll over the river in the morning. We will absolutely be back, but will park up in the grass and walk down to the site next time! 😊

We had a nice weekend tent camping on the property. Beautiful spot and my husband enjoyed fishing there. We also had a lot if fun axe throwing. We went to “get away from it all” and definitely were able to there. David was very friendly and helpful.

Lovely campsite! Plenty of space. Very nice Latrine. Had a blast fishing and throwing axes at the provided targets. Very large fire ring and cooktop made making meals a breeze. Bring your cast iron!

Beautiful camp site along river
Beautiful property here along the Kentucky river. Great for tent camping and the host was very responsive and met us to show us the way back to the site. Beautiful drive in along back roads and great to wake up next to the river for morning coffee.

This was the best tent site ever! It's surrounded by the lake, which has some sort of small green plants growing on top. I took the kayak out and the lake is way bigger than it appears. I don't fish, but there were lots of big fish jumping around. I spent hours in the hammock. I could hear cows, horses and donkeys, but I didn't see them. David texted me daily to see if I needed anything, as I was camping solo. Everything was wonderful!

Great communication from Chelsea and David, especially detailed directions to their property. I wasn't able to stay at the river site due to muddy ground, but they offered a stay at the lake site for the same price as the river site. Awesome stuff! Great property, great people, great stay!

The site was big, clean and well described. The views of the lake were nice and there was a nice fire pit and plenty of wood was provided. There was also a cooler of water present. Communication with David was prompt and clear and we felt most welcome at his camp. I will say that this is way out there and there isn’t much of anything around and cell service is spotty at best. So if you are looking for a place to get away from it all, like we were then this is a good place to go.

Incredible weekend
We absolutely loved camping here! David and Chelsea are so kind and welcoming, and the campsite was full of thoughtful touches. The place itself is absolutely gorgeous, and we had a ton of privacy. The latrine was the nicest I’ve ever seen. Highly recommend.

Wonderful Weekend
David greeted and welcomed us to his camp grounds. The site we had was nicely secluded on a lake point with access to the lake. The grounds were very clean. It felt as if we were deep in the woods, which is exactly the experience we sought.

Beautiful, peaceful stay!
We had a wonderful stay! David and Chelsea were friendly and thoughtful hosts! The site is very private and serene. The weather during our stay was perfect! We slept the first night without the rain fly on our tent and enjoyed a sky full of stars! There were so many amazing birdsongs, frog choruses, and even donkey brats - I felt like nature was giving us a serenade. The owners have thoughtfully arranged the campsite for maximum enjoyment. The fire pit is at least 8 feet in diameter (maybe 10!) and when we arrived, the perfect wood arrangement was ready for us to start our inaugural fire. It was a beauty and caught fire quickly! There is also an ample custom cooktop built into the fire pit that we enjoyed cooking on. Bring your cast iron! Three of the larger trees are lit up at night with solar-powered string lights, which provided the perfect amount of ambient glow. I was also thankful for the semicircle of tiki torches around the picnic table area! Welcoming touches like an outside rug, plenty of chairs around the fire, decorative bird houses, a welcome sign, and the American flag made us feel quite at home. Chelsea was very kind to show us around her farm, and introduce us to her chickens, new baby chicks, and horses. Our kids (ages 11 and 7) were thrilled to pet and feed the horses and we enjoyed hiking all around the expansive property! We were thrilled to find a paddleboat and fishing boat for our use during our stay. The hosts provided life vests, paddles, fishing poles, and we bought some bait! They’ve included so much with their package! We can’t wait to visit again! Next time we plan to stay longer to take advantage of all there is to do and see.

A Peaceful Private Peninsula
This spot was awesome. Surrounded by water and trees on an elevated private peninsula. Was really nice to have table, water, hammock and chairs provided, and we also took advantage of the available boat and bait. Host was extremely hospitable and generous with his time. It was nice to hear the animals nearby too (cows, horses, chickens and some very vocal donkeys). Minimal drawbacks - slight grade in much of the area, and the recently cleared area had a bunch of small remaining stumps, which David (host) pointed out to us upon arrival. Also, no toilet available - otherwise I would have had to be dragged away from here, kicking and screaming!

David was a great camp host. Everything was set up and ready for us upon arrival. Having water on site was especially helpful. At one point, my husband went to check with David about the weather forecast, and he even let our kiddo feed his horses a couple apples. The spacious and secluded campsite has beautiful views. It is located on a small peninsula with water on three sides and was easy to access in our Westy. The lake has duck weed that seems to move in and out with the wind or current. The fishing is good, and having the option to take the small boat out was nice. While there were definitely farm related noises, the site was private and peaceful. We found the donkey brays from a neighboring farm to be quite entertaining. Some kind of outhouse or composting toilet on or near the site would be a huge plus, but we would stay here again regardless.

Beautiful and tons of extras
The McDonald’s were great hosts. The campsite was just awesome. They provided a camp rug, water, firewood, a hammock, picnic table citronella candles, a food prep table, sitting chairs, a garbage can, and even the American flag! There was plenty of space to park and maneuver. The campsite has water views on 3 sides! Absolutely beautiful! We bought the extra farm fresh eggs. Tasty! You can also rent boats from them. We will definitely be back.

Awesome site!
Staying at Two Crane Lake was an awesome experience. David & Chelsea were gracious hosts. It was very easy to communicate with them while we were there. They had our campsite all set up for us and even our campfire. They met us at the entrance to their farm and let us follow them to our site. The boats were a hit with all of us! We had a view of the lake out of every window in our camper! We will definitely be back!
