Clover Field
Perfect getaway.
This was a perfect getaway for my girlfriend and I. The site overlooking the water was beautiful, tucked in the back so it felt nice and secluded as well. Laura was great with answering my questions in a timely manner, and gave great directions to help locate the land. Her husband welcomed me, (as I was running a little behind) and helped me get to the site making sure we had every thing we needed! 10/10 would recommend and look forward to when I can come back!

Beaver Field
My stay at Beaver field: Laura was very responsive with text messages, and even a phone call- helping me with directions … most accommodating; Upon my arrival - with no other campers -I had my pick of any site that suited me- and what a wonderful campsite it turned out to be. so peaceful - like having my own little oasis; w/the sunrise out my window, Singing of birds and all the trees just beginning to Bud… how beautiful! Not to mention the night skies, wildlife, and plenty of walking paths. Laura and Zach greeted me with “gifts” every camper can use(paper towels, plastic bags for trash) but most of all a wonderful breakfast -fresh eggs from their hens! How extremely welcoming /nice of them. They even put extra daily eggs in a basket at their front door if any campers should want them. Zach shared some of his fishing skills and gave me a couple of lures to try my own skills in the pond. Thanks Zach! I did catch a few with the lures!! And to mention w/the solar eclipse, they even had solar eclipse viewing glasses for those who didn’t have….how awesome was that! just can’t say enough for all their thoughtfulness/hospitality/kindness. When talking with them (and walking around) you can see/sense their passion, and hear their history of this land - Sharing it & welcoming travelers as myself, thank you! Laura and Zach-Thank you for a wonderful experience/stay

Wonderful host and location
Beautiful, serene, private, and restorative. I loved tent camping at this spot and would highly recommend it, especially if you like spotting wildlife!

Nicest spot I’ve stayed at yet! Can’t go wrong on the price either.

Waterfront Woodland Retreat
Idyllic waterfront woodland camping
Incredible private location on a lake in the woods. The hosts, Zachary and Laura were so accommodating. They let us select our site, allowed us to recharge our power station and offered the use of their bathroom/shower at their cabin. Not to mention they were just cool people. We will definitely come back, when in the area again.

Quick Trip Passing Through
Laura and Zac are amazingly friendly and very hospitable. I ended up by one of the ponds and it was perfect! The only sounds heard through the night was the wildlife. I do recommend calling Laura once you get to the area for assistance getting to the property. It can definitely be a bit confusing if using Google Maps. I would definitely stay again. Maybe soon.
