Don't let the address fool you, we are actually located only a few miles outside of Mansfield, Tx. We are about 30 minutes away from Joe Pool Lake, Six Flags, and the Texas Rangers Ballpark. Our land is private land that has been in the family for many decades. We have a variety of events that happen here, including an annual festival called Steampunk November, so you will notice there are stages and even a saloon here on site. We have all kinds of wildlife in the area including crows, a great horned owl, night herons, a mated pair of marsh hawks, roadrunners, coyotes, bobcats, skunks, armadillos, bunnies, a fox every now and then, and all kinds of birds flitting about.Get away from the city without losing the convenience. Located on private land just minutes away from a large city, you can get a camping experience with stars and wildlife and still pop into town for groceries. Plenty of hidden groves in the trees for private camping as well as a communal space with a large fire pit. We do have some events during the year where there will be crowds and busy camping. These events are the second weekend of October, November, and December.

I have nothing but good things to say about Shane and Leslie! The campsite was beautiful and well maintained. There were many campsites to choose from, from large to secluded to easy access to the flushable bathroom!! The weather was not very favorable for our trip and upon arrival, Shane addressed the possibility of us getting stuck and preemptively offered to pull us out with his tractor if that happened! We enjoyed talking to both Shane and Leslie. They are fantastic hosts! We spent a bit of time chatting and getting to know them and the events they host throughout the year, but were also given privacy. We WILL be coming back!!

Awesome spot!
Camp grounds were perfect. Went for the eclipse and there were lots of friendly people there to witness the event. Although there were many camp sites there, it still felt private because of trees separating each site. There was bathrooms and showers so that was awesome. We stayed up by our campfire and the night sky was beautiful. Definitely going back!

Leslie, Shane, and co. have an amazing property. There is a more “community oriented” area with a fire pit or you can be more off on your own. Showers and bathrooms were very clean. The family/staff are so nice. We’d definitely stay there again!

The positive things first: we were greeted by welcoming camp staff. They were very helpful showing us around the camp. The sites are clean separated by other sites by evergreen trees. The camp offers hot showers and for a $10 you can have unlimited firewood for the night. The things to be aware of: the spacing between sites is tight, so although you can’t see your neighbors you can hear them even when they use conversation voice. Not necessarily a bad thing in the daytime, but at night it can be annoying if you settle down for the night when your neighbors are around the campfire talking. What they could do better: the showers could definitely be cleaner. I’d suggest wearing water shoes or flip flops. Admittedly the camp was busy the night before the eclipse- perhaps the showers are normally cleaner when the camp isn’t as busy. The water coming out of the shower is hard - there are a lot of rust stains on the shower floor and you can smell the iron.

Sorry I can’t leave a review. I canceled my trip back in March and never made the trip. Thank you.
