It was nice receiving firewood and fresh eggs. A very scenic view of the lake down the hill!

The view does not disappoint! Site is private and spacious. Hosts are hospitable but not intrusive. We added on the farm fresh eggs which were well worth it! ORVs are popular in the area so expect to hear some engines. The stargazing is fantastic and if you're lucky you'll hear coyote howling at the moon. A very enjoyable weekend. Would definitely recommend.

This is a great area to camp. Host we’re very good with communicating and meeting our needs with firewood. Beautiful views of the lake as well.

Very close to town and attractions. Not a huge site and a bit exposed to the sun. Still, it does the job and has everything promised. Had a restful night’s sleep there and a nice fire.

The site was clean big quiet and what a view plenty of room for dog romping as well. This site was close to main roads easy to get to makes for a great long camp or short camp stay. We needed wood for fire Adam n Sarah were very tentative an friendly brought wood to us multiple times during our stay would 10 out 10 recommend we will definitely be booking again

We needed a convenient spot to camp as we passed through the area. Adam and Sarah’s land worked great for us. We arrived after dark and woke to a scenic view! Good communication as well.
