Luckily I was there when there were no rallys or festivals so I had the entire area to myself. Ken is very welcoming. Very nice stay

A beautiful piece of property, granting complete privacy, that we would return to without question.

Peaceful Camping Trip
Beautiful space, easy access to swimming hole and trails through the forest. Great campsite as well. Remember to pick up your trash, we collected a whole bag full from a walk to the swimming hole. Thank you land and thank you Ken for hosting!

Private retreat, great site.
This is the best hip camp we’ve been at. What I appreciate so much is the privacy. We camped at site 2, deep in the woods with no other sites visible. Although, I don’t know think you’d really be able to see any site from any site because it’s so spread out across the acreage. It’s obvious that this land can host 1000s of people for an event but I appreciate so much that the hip camp hosts only four very spread out sites. Definitely needed the off road camper for the site we picked but the others would not require this. All of the sites are huge. We loved that we didn’t have to leash up our dogs. The swimming hole was great…clean quiet. The sites were reasonably clean..we did pick up some broken glass and some trash we found but that’s obviously the fault of prior campers. Didn’t meet or hear from owner, but didn’t need to either. Will definitely book this again.
