Joe was a super great host, he was available and communicative when I needed. The location was great. The site doesn't really have usable tree cover, and that would have been nice, and the water was pretty hard. That may be common of the area I am not sure, but it was yellow when putting it into our jugs so we didn't feel pumped to drink it. Otherwise it was a great stay, and we felt safe and for the price it was great. Joe was super helpful and we would probably stay again if needed

Joe’s wife Shannon was lovely. And so are their cows and animals. Private, and great if you are looking for a chill night under the stars :)

Very private
This place is very private. Even though there are houses nearby, you wouldn't know it once you are back the lane. Very quiet and secluded, exactly what I wanted. The GPS directions do take you to the main house but Joe was there to help direct me to the next road and driveway back to the spot. Joe was very friendly and helpful.

On very late notice Joe allowed us to stay on his land, even staying up close to midnight to show us where to go. Not far from the road but served our purpose none the less, a nice open patch with a good view of the stars.

Enjoyable. Loved it. Very private.
Joe met us upon arrival gave us options of places to camp on his property. Cut the grass for us. Brought us some wood and bricks for the camp fire. Beautiful area. Awesome lakes. Rented a John boat one morning went fishing on Mogadine Lake. Very reasonable price. Awesome experience.
