Beautiful spot near Serpent Mound!
I had a great experience tent camping for 2 nights on Phil’s beautiful property! I was even fortunate enough to meet my host, who doesn’t live on the site but was doing tree maintenance the weekend I was there, so I got to learn a bit about his family’s long history in the area. Site #2 had a nice flat, shady spot for my tent, right between the gravel parking area and the fire ring. The electric outlet is designed for a different type of plug than a normal 120-volt wall outlet — probably whatever large campers use — but Phil had a spare plug converter he loaned me so I could inflate my mattress and charge my phone! I enjoyed a great morning hike around the hillsides before heading to Serpent Mound, and the day I left I was delighted to hear the early morning gobbles of the wild turkeys that live on the property. Be aware that the campsites are fairly close to the road, so you do hear some traffic sounds if you’re in a tent, but otherwise it feels pretty remote and disconnected from the real world! I will definitely be back the next time I’m headed out that way.

It was very peaceful and there's alot land to explore. It's 13 minutes from The Serpent Mound, so that is a major plus. We got to meet "P.J.'s" dad who was checking on a wood tract elsewhere on the property. We could have listened to his stories for hours. He seemed like a very kind person that loves his family. The precut firewood on-site was very nice and convenient. There are some pretty cool hidden gems in the trails. The utilities where clean, up to date, and working perfectly. We will definitely camp here again in the future. The only suggestion I could make would be to add another site or 2 deeper into the woods so more people can enjoy this beautiful property.

Our second time here and it’s perfect! It’s just what it says, Tranquility! Much needed quiet time and with electric, water, hiking trails, and we had cell service. We will definitely be back again!

Philip's land was perfect! Great shady spots with hookups. The area was beautiful, you're close to the road, but it's not busy at all, the sites were nice and quiet.

Relaxing wilderness retreat
We stayed at campsite #2 (toward the back) and it was extremely quiet. It was only a brief stay, but we found it very peaceful and relaxing! And Philip was friendly and responsive to our messages. Thanks again!

Philip's place was amazing! Very well maintained and beautiful. We loved hiking the trails. We shot a couple of balls around at the basketball hoop he had set up. What a nice surprise. We didn't see anyone else the few days we were there... and enjoyed the solitude. We came to Ohio to visit The Serpent Mound. Philip's place was only about 10 minutes away. We definitely plan on coming again.

Tranquility says it all!
This was one of our most favorite Hipcamp spots ever! Philip does an amazing job of maintaining his property. There were two sites, both with water and electric. Site #1 does have a very bright light, possibly a street light of some sort that lights up the whole site all night, site #2 is just a few feet away from 1 but the light was not bright there at all. Site 1 is best for tents as it has more flat areas (but closer to the road) Site 2 might be too sloped for tents. There’s plenty of hammock trees though. There were plenty of mowed walking trails to explore and just down over the hill from the campsites was a cute little sitting area with a small natural spring that made a nice relaxing sound. We saw a turkey, some hummingbirds, butterflies, squirrels, a hawk and we heard many songbirds. This area is so peaceful and relaxing and was just what we needed. We wanted to explore more across the street at the wildlife area but unfortunately it was a very hot weekend and we ran out of time. We will be back soon! Thank you Philip!

Excellent campsite as advertised
Beautiful campsite with trails all around Philip's land. Well maintained with easy water/electric access with stockpiles of free firewood. Philip was responsive with the few questions I had. The artesian creek was a favorite spot for us to visit. Would definitely recommend and come back.

We were in site 1, which is a little closer to the road than I had envisioned, definitely couldn't let our 2 and 4 year olds out of the camper alone with their older sister like we like to do. The property is beautiful and the host, Philip, does a great job of maintaining it. There was a soccer goal with balls, a basketball hoop with balls, SO MANY trails and the closest one led to a beautiful natural spring that the kids really enjoyed. There were several fire pits and free firewood. The campsite is a rock/gravel pad and the electric and water are right there at the site. Overall, good experience. I HIGHLY recommended a good tick repellent at this location.

Very well maintained
We stayed at site 2 and it was very nice. There was plenty of firewood and it was even covered so it wouldn’t be wet. This was great as it rained a lot prior to our trip. The spring was very nice but very muddy so take cation during/after the rain. Trails on the property are very well maintained and the land it beautiful. Water and electric hookup is a definite plus. Only wish the fire ring was on the same side as the camper door.

Nice and easy
Pros: Easy access to US 32; nice trail; lots of firewood; basketball rim; nice rock collection. Cons: #1 site is level but sits fairly close to the road (about 1 car every 15 min.) and was very brightly lit (I realize this may not be a "con" for everyone). #2 site is darker and sits farther back, but you'll need to level. Other thoughts: places like this are the reason I use Hipcamp. No long forms to fill out; no ranger to chase down; just a quick stop for the night then gone in the morning. Will return. Thanks Phillip.

Adequate and well provisioned.
We had a nice stay at Tranquility Spring. It was safe and there was a lot of space to walk around the meadow. It wasn’t totally clear how close the trailer spots (1&2) were to the road in the description. So the road sounds were a little Loud through the night. The path to the spring was super muddy and I slipped twice, despite the straw that had been laid down. However the water was delicious and there was plenty of wood for the fire. I’d stay again if I was passing through!

Great Relaxing Stay
We enjoyed our shelves. It is quiet. We saw no one else the 4 days we were there. Peebles is interesting. Loved Serpent Mound. A great place to get away. Recharge and relax.

Fantastic! Exceptional place!
This was honestly the best place we have stayed. We are new to camping with our small rig and really appreciated everything Philip did to make this a great stay. He had firewood, water, and electric. Super private. He was available via phone but didn’t bother us (which we really liked) while we were there. We were able to make our mistakes without someone watching. lol. As we pulled out this morning my husband and I said we can’t wait to come back. This place is 5 stars!!!

Beautiful Camp in Rural SW Ohio
Beautiful property, clean camp, free firewood! Easy to find a level spot in the driveway and utilities were easy to access. Several nice unimproved trails throughout the property were wonderful to explore. And the area itself is fantastic! Lots of areas to hike, fun "Roadside America" attractions and oddities nearby, and a great place for motorcycles and ATVs. Our host was easily accessible through the app, although we never got to meet him in person. Looking forward to meeting him when we stay again. Highly recommend!

Extremely enjoyable
Upon arrival, we were greeted by Philip and his 2 sons. They were just finishing up from working on adding additional electric to a different parking location. We had the pleasure of being shown , by the boys, the fire pit and spring fed creek that was down a small path from where we parked. We got lucky and it was not raining when we arrived. The boys were itching to start a fire in the new fire pit at the parking location. Philip asked if we would mind if they started one up. We were happy to let them while we set up our TT. They soon left and we enjoyed the rest of our evening around a nice fire. The location is by a road but it is not heavily traveled. We stayed for 3 nights Had some rain off and on but we were still able to walk throughout all of the paths that are maintained by Philip. Very nice property. We were looking for something remote, quiet and relaxing. This place fit the bill perfectly. Philip, you have done a great job!!
