An ancient saying “Senlinyu” translates “Forest Bath” it is the concept of retreating to nature to revive the body, mind, and spirit. Njoy the nature. Your campsite includes a fire pit and good times. This site is adjacent to a park . When you wake up after a day of fishing and a night of s’mores and campfire stories with the mist in the air and this peaceful lakefront view you will know God is good and you are alive. The air is crisp and clean and the birds sing you a personal lul-a- bye.

Lots of traffic/bad area
There was a lot of traffic there is a soccer field just down from the campsite. There was a lot of riff raff walking around we even had to call the police because we thought someone was breaking into our car. It's in a bad area, And the half mile path was full of roots and you could barely get your gear to the campsite. Definitely not a forest bath!

Not Secluded, gunshots in the park.
We chose this campsite because it was listed as a "forest bath" that was secluded, and appeared to be in the photos. It is described as being close to a park, but we did not realize that we would be on display for everyone who comes into the park. The entry road across from the campsite was incredibly busy, with cars and people buzzing by all day. Many people came over to the campsite to ask what we were doing, because it doesn't really look like a place you should be camping. We felt VERY much on display, and it was uncomfortable. Additionally, we were camping on New Years Eve (thinking we were in a secluded nature area), and from about 7pm-4am there were constant GUNshots. and I mean constant, we could hardly hear each other talk. Some were fireworks, most were gunshots. Three different cars ripped into the parking lot (where they could see us from) and shot guns into the sky. This was incredibly scary for my children. We felt disappointed to pay over $200 for a family of 6 for this experience. The hosts were nice and communicated well via the app. They even left sparklers for the kids. The canoe was fun to rent out and paddle on the small lake.
