Great little spot! Nice pond.
Neil has a great spot! He was out of town but was very responsive with communication, which was awesome because we booked SUPER last minute. And since we got there pretty late, he was cool with us staying a little past original check out time the following day. Thanks Neil! Easy access to the spot. 2wd accessible. Neil gave great directions. We really enjoyed camping by the water and there is decent bank fishing access, with a big fire pit next to the pond. We slept in the back of our SUV, but there is plenty of room for a tent or whatever set up you have.

Perfect. Great place to camp. Just off the highway, but secluded enough you don't notice. Briefly met our host, Neil...really super nice guy. I'd sit and drink a beer with him any day. Definitely will be back again. Thanks man!!

Loved having a private lake and camping spot to ourselves! Neil was extremely accommodating and flexible which made our stay 10x better. My dog loved being able to run and swim off leash. We had a perfect day/night at this campsite and can’t wait to come back!
