For our first Hipcamp experience, John’s site really knocked it out of the park! The wooden platform fit our 9 person tent perfectly & the site was nice and private. The outdoor shower was a 10/10 & the porta potty was nice and clean. We definitely will be back again!

Camping on the water!
We had a lovely visit at The Natures Nook Nautical(2009). The room was absolutely adorable and very clean. The room had a fan which we didn’t need. But the oscillating heater was amazing! We brought an extra sleeping bag but never needed it. The mattress was super comfortable for us (firm) we are actually looking to purchase the same one. Plenty of outlets, large fire pit. As far as outdoor activity… no hiking trails but kayaking would be possible. We arrived just after a rain storm so the water was quite murky by the time we were leaving it cleared up a little bit. Overall we had a wonderful visit! Thank you John.

Place is nice and quiet, probably super awesome in summer rather than fall.

Peaceful and well maintain
The sites were all very well maintained. I stayed in the RV/tent site and was thrilled with how level the concrete pad was so I wasn’t rolling out of bed 😉 The wooden platform was well built and quaintly overlooked the river.
