Good Base Camp - Potential for More
Jill is a wonderful host and very generous. Know that the camping area is close to the house and so privacy is limited. Limited also are level places to park and sit. The 30A power is nice along with water. Depending on where you park though the spigot can be farther than your drinking hose can reach. A provided long drinking water hose would be nice to avoid the taste from a standard hose. Access to sewer is there but not easy to use if you half a low profile trailer. We used the Lucky 7 truck stop nearby on our way south. The chickens and fresh eggs are a bonus, but the rooster could challenge light sleepers. The lake is steps away from the property and is quiet with only two properties on it and no public access. The provided canoe was great and was not a problem launching from the shore, but the dock needs repairs as many of the boards felt soft. Jill provided us a screen room tent that we setup with a view of the lake that was shaded most of the day and was a really nice hangout space. An extensive ATV trail and trailhead is close by but we didn’t hear too much noise from that. Jill generously offered use of their side-by-side. Overall I’d say with some refinement this has great potential for a destination site and if you’re flexible it makes a good home base for exploring the area.
