Nature’s music
I loved the peace and quiet of the property. I loved listening to the birds and bugs. And I liked watching the cows walk by.

Camping with horses
Awesome and lots of land! Horses loved it aswell. Clear directions, Lots of pastures to ride through and explore. Very peaceful, didn’t get bothered by noise or anything of those sorts. Cows tried loading in the trailer and were very curious but they’re very skittish and just walk away from you if you confront. Sunset was irreplaceable! We’ll definitely be back.

Absolutely blissful!
The ranch is absolutely blissful! Gary was helpful and gave great directions. We had the best time getting to explore the land. The ponds are beautiful. Getting to say hello to the cows was our favorite part. We can’t wait to return!

My 3rd time. I love it. I got to talk to cows. I think I might becoming fluent in bovine, because they stared at me like they were listening! 😝 It’s just a good peaceful get away. I brought my telescope this time because this first two times you could see every star in the sky away from city lights. I forgot my eye piece though. Another reason to go back. One thing I need to ask about though is balls of light. About 3:30 in the morning I saw something I couldn’t explain

This is a working farmland divided into three beautiful pastures with a wooded area and in the back. There are no designated sites but by driving around it becomes obvious where previous campers have selected their sites and built firepits. There is an abundance of firewood to be had from the fallen trees in the wooded areas, so bring a saw or a hatchet with you. I visited Briers during the week and apart from a very inquisitive heard of cows and young calves, I was the only camper. It was perfect peace and quiet and gave me and my dogs the chance to roam the property and enjoy it. There is a quant little cabin tucked away in the back woods that is carefully being restored by Gary. The weather was not the kindest, but regardless, it was an enjoyable couple of nights and certainly has made me determined to return in the near future for a longer stay when the leaves are on the trees and the pastures are growing. Gary was an excellent host and a pleasure to communicate with. He loves his land and enjoys being able to share nature with the community. We should be grateful that owners like Gary are prepared to give us these opportunities.
