Site 2 - Private pond camping
Our host was great and communicative! The trailer with the toilet was great it also was nice to have the trailer to store food and things we didn’t want to get wet overnight. We didn’t really understand the shower situation. They did provide clean drinking water for us though! The grass around the site and even in the site was pretty tall and being right next to the pond was very buggy - we found lots of ticks and had to deet up! It’s relatively close to the road so there was a decent amount of car noises but not too bad. It was very private. The cabin that they were doing construction on there was a little creepy. Overall - there’s not a lot of sites near Hastings and considering we were on bicycles and couldn’t get much further off the bike path - this was pretty decent!

Site 2 - Private pond camping
This is a nice private area, there is noise from the road and trains but it was not really bothersome. It was great waking up and seeing ducks on the pond. We will return!

Beautiful property
We were in a desperate situation when we requested the reservation. Theresa was very kind and helped us locating the property and stayed on the phone with us until we caught hooked up and settled. We only stayed for a total 9 hrs max but from we saw it is beautiful. They say location location location. This property has that wow factor. Although hard to find it’s worth the journey.

Great place to camp where you can have some privacy. Electric hook up for camper was a great thing to have.

Very privet but needs up keep
It’s very privet but could use some more up keep. Not well marked and sites are tight to park in with a camper.

Remote camping.
All other reviews are accurate. It’s a beautiful spot with no interruptions or other people. The host was amazing answering all our questions. Lot could be cleaned a little but it is still one of the best spots if you like privacy.
