Enjoyable for sure, not secluded

We camped very early in the season so the site was potentially not set up as usual yet. Since I have a little teardrop I was parked across the street and I wasn’t expecting to be immediately adjacent to the driveway of an occupied house. It’s also uphill. Ultimately we used the space pretty well on both sides of the street but we had to clean a lot of broken glass off the path up to the area by the outhouse.

This spot was beautiful and peaceful! Perfect place to see the foliage and the pond is gorgeous. Our pup went for a swim and we relaxed by the fire all night. David was very attentive and welcoming and detailed with instructions. We will be back for sure! Thank you!

Had a great weekend at David's site on the pond. Weather was somewhat rainy but we still had a nice and relaxing time getting away from the city. Plenty of space on the site, and the option to rent the paddle boards was great. There are a few houses somewhat nearby, but the houses around the lake aren't right on top of each other like in other lakes. We felt there was plenty of privacy. We arrived in the night and were a bit confused which was the right driveway and where the outhouse was but we found it just fine in the morning. Outhouse was rustic but clean. There is a well built fire pit for fires. The picnic table is a little broken so you may want to bring a sturdy table if you'll be cooking. Overall had a great time, it's so nice to camp out right by the water, waking up to the birds and especially hearing the loons out on the lake.

This was our second time here! We came last June of 2020, and this time we brought my boyfriends six year old daughter. She also had a blast! We spent the day on the SUP boards, and did a lot of grilling over the fire as well. There was about an hour that the weather was rainy, so we went to the ice cream place >10ish minutes away - The Canty Cow - such beautiful views and got to hang out with the cows and goats while the weather passed.
We saw three HUGE bald eagles while out on the water, and the house across from the pond/lake shot off fireworks in the night which looked great over the water.
The outhouse is a bit dodgy, with some sizable spiders in it, if you care about that kind of stuff. I personally don't, but will warn you anyways ;)
Thanks, again, David! We had an amazing time yet again.

A really wonderful time and a beautiful place. The lake was warm and quiet, and we enjoyed our two nights there! Highly recommend and would absolutely return.

There are a few Adirondack chairs, a table and a fire pit for use. We used the paddleboards which was awesome and took our dog out on the water for the first time. Our mornings and evenings were spent reading, drinking and hanging out right at the water. Afternoons and evenings were perfect to sit in the sun and relax.

It is a bit close to the road and the property is split between the camping area (lake side) and the parking spot and outhouse (other side of the road). But there weren't too many cars driving by at all, especially at night, and it wasn't too much of a hassle. Some neighbors walking and biking by, all were pretty friendly.

Well, due to recent rains it was very muddy and we were unable to camp. The site was beautiful the "pond" was huge and you are on the water. The dogs ran around and went swimming while we decided to leave. David gave fantastic directions and refunded the stay. Wonderful host wish it had not rained.

Spent a fantastic long weekend at this spot! Perfect area next to the water for a fire and letting our pup run around. We brought kayaks and it was easy access to get them down to the water. Host was great and allowed us to use the paddle boards as well. Definitely recommend this spot.

We stayed from 7/16/21- 7/18/21 and truly enjoyed all the pond had to offer. We spent all of Saturday fishing and swimming. The pond was so refreshing and warm to swim in. It is also a great spot for catch and release fishing, & we had the best time out there! We got lucky with mostly great weather up until the last night with a bit of rain. It was quiet on site, and really a peaceful place!

My only complaint would be, the picnic table is pretty rotted and not able to sit at. The top is missing a 1/4 of the table as well. We hadnt brought a folding table due to the add listing a picnic table. Didnt make a huge impact but I may suggest a new one. The listing also states this is a site you can park "on site" at and is accessible to roof top tents, camper vans, etc. In my opinion it is do-able, but not the most ideal for anything other than tenting. The land is split between the main road leading around the pond. The waterfront space is only accessible to tents. And the driveway to park and outhouse are across the street. My husband and I had to park our car/rooftop tent on the dirt driveway across the street along the road. Not a huge deal, as we literally only sleep in it. But I think the lay of the land was a bit misunderstood when booked. The only flat land on this side of the road is at the very edge of the driveway so we were essentially sleeping on the side of the road. Luckily its not a heavy traffic road otherwise I would have been much more uncomfortable safety wise.

Those few things aside, we still enjoyed what the space had to offer and we had a wonderful time on the land/water. Thank you David!
