Site 1 - Camp Benjamin
Our stay at Benjamin’s was amazing!
We really enjoyed getting to know Benjamin and Ashe. Not only is he a great story teller but hearing their adventures help make the whole experience that much better. The site felt so secure and private, we felt right at home. Ashley even gave us fresh garlic harvested from the garden. Amazing experience!

Homey atmosphere and amazing hosts
This was our first time trying hipcamp and Benjamin sold us on the concept. He's been an extremely helpful and hospitable host. He chooses great beers and made us delicious tea. The adorable barn dog, Levis, is always there to say hello and might kidnap a bit of fire wood while he's as it. The amenities were clean and overall superb. My girlfriend is new to camping and despite the unfortunate weather, she really enjoyed staying at Benjamin's camp. We wish Benjamin and Ash the best and hope to visit them again some time!

Magical Homestead Under the Stars
It would almost be impossible to describe the magic that is Camp Benjamin. We met Ash when we arrived, and she showed us to our camp spot which was on soft grass above kind of a sandy ground which was comfy and made it easy to set up camp. We were able to drive our car right up to the site which made our stay that much more stress-free. We had a nice private little nook with a picnic table in the forest with two fire pits. After setting up our camp, we explored a bit on the trails. It felt like wandering through a calming labyrinth in the trees. Benjamin and Ash met up with us to give us a tour of the property. The huge barn they redid contains a bathroom and a large room where they hold concerts and yoga/dance/outdoor classes. We got to check out the impressive greenhouse that they built. We joined our hosts for a fire closer to their homestead with a view of the huge garden. Ash gave me a jar of sprouts she sprouted. We had a clear view of the milky way and Ash showed me some cool constellations. We were also directed to a beautiful swimming hole about 2 miles up the road where we swam in the morning. We can't wait to come back!
