****Recent Update**** Due to new adjacent properties developments, and new neighbors moving in nearby, there are occasional neighboring barking, music and gunshots that can be heard from the distance, which is pretty common out in the countryside here. *************************************************************************************** There is currently a group of 10 people who spend the majority of our time living and striving to create community on these 85 beautiful acres of land. Our goals are to establish a thriving community, grow most of our own food, build tiny houses to rent or sell, create sustainability and be as self sufficient as possible, salvage material for builds, host events and retreats, teach classes, and more. Please feel free to ask questions and share any interest you may have in what we are doing here. Our property is a densely forested 85 acres with a walk-able 2 miles around the perimeter of the property and many trails and hidden nooks to explore throughout the heart of this beautiful escape back to our natural roots. We are in the process of mapping out the trails- which we plan to make available soon! For now those of you with a sense of adventure and desire to explore will certainly be satisfied. We have a full acre size pond and a kayak that you can feel free to use. There is a communal area around the pond that we will be adding to in the near future- you may run into some of our community members or other campers there from time to time, we invite you to socialize, bring a chair, perhaps a beverage or snack and get to know each other and us as well if we cross paths! You will observe and encounter wildlife in abundance including a variety of birds, wild hogs, opossums, armadillo, moles, spiders, scorpions, butterflies, praying mantis, walking sticks, snakes- keep an eye out for rattlesnakes and copperheads, deer, many insects, and more. Please be cautious and treat these creatures' home with respect for them as well as yourselves. Our property is also home to some lovely cows, chickens, a few dogs, and several cats- they (other than the cows who do what they please) generally remain in areas away from our camp sites though they may still decide to stop by to say hello! We have many spaces available for camping throughout the property. These are primitive campsites on raw land so you will need to provide your own tent, water, food, and operate with a leave no trace mentality when camping here. There are areas that can accommodate large groups of campers as well as very secluded nooks if you are looking for a private retreat into nature. There is plenty of fallen wood available for firewood and a fire pit will be prepared for you before arrival!

Loved the tent, very whimsical. We enjoyed our stay and Jerry was very nice! Within miles of stores, restaurants, and shopping. Highly recommend checking it out!

Site 2 - Primitive Camping
I enjoyed trying out a new place; however, was very much surprised at how loud it actually was and how close we were to other people for a primitive site. Only stayed one night out of the two that I paid for.

Camping with our pups
Nice set up. Structure was very unique. Screened-in, earthy decor, and nice tripod for cooking on the fire. We mostly just hung out at the campsite for the night- enjoying the fire, cooking our dinner, and being under the solar powered tree lights.

The Crescent Oak Nature Cabin
Cool campsite
Fun day trip, we enjoyed the campsite and we ordered the cooking grill and extra firewood which helped a lot. Unfortunately, we could not stay due to neighbors barking continuously which in turn made our dogs bark. The weather also took a turn and it got extremely cold. The tent offers a small fan but nothing for heating. We had only blankets and hand warmers and it still wasn't enough. We wish we could of stayed but it wasn't comfortable due to the noise and cold. The bed is very hard to get up and off so make sure you have good knees. It's a beautiful campsite and appreciate the opportunity to spend time there. We overall enjoyed it a lot !!!
