Recent Hipcampers say this Hipcamp is great for families and kids.
The very best native blackland prairie known to exist in the world. The prairie is surrounded by trees with plenty of shade for camping. If you get hot, take a swim in the spring fed pond that has cool water currents in certain spots. Or take the kids fishing off the fishing pier, and if they don't catch one, I'll give your money back. Come see us, enjoy nature and have fun.The very best location to watch the eclipse in Dallas, TX. Eclipse watching event April 6th-9th. Pitch your tent in the forrest of the wetlands. Bring your conoe, kayak, or paddle boards and all the fishing gear. One smaller private pond with fishing pier for kids to catch that first fish. Wildflower photography ? Pictures attached 😁😁😁

Super host, super camp site
A few weeks before the 2024 solar eclipse, I realized I needed to find a place to be during totality. Most events in Dallas were sold out, and everyone warned me about horrendous traffic going anywhere and that I needed to be there the night before. I lucked upon this prairie, which was located deep in the path of totality. Steve was a great host, answered all my questions, and had a generous check-in and check-out time for eclipse day. The prairie was beautiful, and I picked it because it had a bathroom to use. He had an MC give a tour of the prairie and look at the wildflowers, and the MC also guided us through the eclipse timings. There was a cool dog that wandered all over the place. It was not crowded, which was really nice. And all you can see was green. Not a building or road in sight. How great it is to live on the prairie (coming from someone living in an urban California city)! If I lived near Texas, this would be a nice place to go sort of camping.

Beautiful, peaceful place with prairie, hills, wildflowers on the uplands with views of nearby hills, a pond down the hill, and plenty of space to roam. Steve is a friendly, helpful host who cares for the land and enthusiastically helps others understand that rare blackland prairie. Children of other campers enjoyed the "welcoming committee" of chickens, turkey, and friendly dog.

The road to the site was a little rough HOWEVER it had been raining previously. Backed into my campsite, made myself a cuppa joe took pics and watched the sunset. If you don’t like the sound of birds, frogs or other wildlife, don’t go. I however will be back if I get the opportunity.

Loved it!
We had an amazing time at The Indigo Hills Prairie & Wildflow and definitely recommend it. Steve is such a wonderful host, he made sure we had everything we needed and more! We camped at the main campsite, overlooking the pond, which has a nice big firepit with chairs and a hammock. It was a beautiful experience all around. Our 2 boys shared that this is their favorite camping spot now and we all can't wait to go back!

Eclipse camping in the prairie
The prairie is Absolutely gorgeous, and the views at the top are hard to find anywhere else in the area. Steve is an incredibly nice host, and the sites he takes you around to each have their own charm to them!
