Beautiful property!
The entire property was gorgeous. There are many trails that are gravel paved so mud and such isn鈥檛 a problem when hiking them. Everything is well labeled. Arthur gave great directions and was quick to respond to questions. We would recommend this place to friends and return some day.

Second time back!
Second time camping here, it鈥檚 beautiful. And easy to find firewood. Peaceful, private (only saw a couple climbers on Saturday afternoon) and relaxing. Highly recommend.

Quiet, primitive camping.
Beautiful property for primitive camping. I left my pack in my car and hiked around for a while to find a good spot. It can get steep in some areas so I figured I'd save some effort, in particular since I was carrying in water. I'd advise finding a spot towards the center or north of the property, rather than up high and to the south. When I got over the highest ridge to the south you could hear the nearby highway. Pretty quiet in the interior. Lots and lots of deadfall firewood. Boy it was pretty. I had a wonderful, peaceful couple of nights in the woods. Totally recommended! Art was a super-responsive and helpful host, too.

Good quiet get away.
Host answered all our questions, we were the only ones there and it was nice. The dirt road to the parking lot was a little rough for my car, but still made it. Lots of paths to explore and we were able to camp at the cave. One thing to note is that there is some poison ivy around the trees on the left side of the cave when facing towards it.

Arthur has a really great property in other lots of marked trails and beautiful scenery. We found a very cool spot to set up camp off the main road but car camping was definitely a possibility too. The cave and rock formation were all beautiful and great if you鈥檙e a climber.
