Polly and her family were so accommodating to take us in late at night after our other host cancelled at the last minute. Not only that, but we had one of the quietest and most restful night's sleep on our road trip, in a pasture under clear skies. I would highly recommend this campsite to everyone!

Perfect for star watching
Went for a night of star watching, location was as dark as it physically could be so perfect.

Phrog and Munkey Camping
Great little place with beautiful views and very hospitable hosts. We stayed at the Hill Top spot and the views were amazing, the access to the Hill Top site maybe a little steep for some but that's how we personally like it. The site is very private and quiet. The site had a tent pad, picnic table, and fire ring. We stayed in a roof top tent and the site was great for it as well. The hosts were both so very helpful and accommodating, even loaning us their telescope to see the stars. We defiantly recommend to others and will be back ourselves.
