If you prefer small Mom and Pop Diners, stop in and say Hi to Delbert and Margaret at Mikey's Family Restaurant, I don't think you will be disappointed.  Charcoal Grill is supplied in case you just want to bring charcoal and camp cook. Things to do:  Hiking Buzzards Roost, Canoe/Kayaking @ MoonDoggie LIVERee, visiting Miller’s Amish furniture and Bakery, Shawnee National Forest, Adams State Lake, Serpent Mound and the Sunshine store, just to mention a few things to do..  There is about a 1/4 mile perimeter that can be walked/Hiked.  It is not a necessarily an easy walk as you will be crossing the creek 3 times along with going up dirt hills.  This is not a finished trail as there are no bridges over the creek or necessarily beaten trails, you will be following the property markers.   So bring your walking stick and boots.    Your away from everything but close to what ever you want. Bigfoot Country ;) Fishing and Bigfoot Hunting allowed,  however they are both catch and release :)

Peace and quiet
We camped out at bear pond for our wedding anniversary weekend, it was very peaceful and quiet. There is a road near the campsite though traffic isn’t bad at all and dies down in the evening. We definitely plan on camping here again with our family. The owner is very nice and prompt with response if you have any questions.

We had a great time camping at Bear Pond. The best part was not having any noisy neighbors and having the whole area to ourselves. The pond was good for fishing which was a bonus, and John’s communication was quick and helpful.

We hand a great time! The campsite was quiet and surrounded by nature. We caught fish in the pond and walked the area with our dogs. The area is pretty much all hill except for the gravel camping pad, fire pit area, and the pond area Firewood was left for us to use and we were able to find branches on the property to burn. We will definilty be back to this spot!

Good space for the number of people we had. Was flexible with us and just let us have the run of the place! Would stay again!
