This is a 76 acre "farm" that has been allowed to rest for the last 20 some years, surrounded by large agricultural fields. There are areas of pasture, woods, and wetlands. This is a very rustic piece of property, with no amenities. Just a chance to get away for some fresh air.

Great place to camp. Real quiet and rural, but close enough to town if you forget something. Beautiful piece of land, got to see butterflies, rabbits, and all types of birds.

Ground was dry enough to drive my car on without worry, but I wouldn't have made it if it was wet, so 4wd or an orv may be warranted.

I utilized a hammock, so didn't use the set up near the entrance, but it was nice to see the chairs and picnic tables around a good size fire pit. I would have set up there if I was using a tent.

All in all, I recommend it, and will be back in the future. About 20 minutes from home makes this the perfect spot for day trips, single nights, and weekend adventures.

Beautiful place to take a break from it all. We enjoyed the peace and seclusion of Camp Wild and Free, and will return if only for the expansive scenery and firefly show!

This property was stunningly beautiful and lots of room for our two dogs to run free. We felt very alone and saw no other people during our stay, which is what we like. The only downside is the grass is very tall and since the ticks are bad this year we had a heck of a time keeping them off the dogs.

We had planned on camping here because it was half way to our final destination, but on the night we were driving the weather turned bad and we decided to push through for an 8 hour drive to the upper peninsula instead of only 4 hours. Communication with Beth right after we booked and also while we were on the road was fantastic. Very responsive, she said let me know if you decide not to camp and I can refund you.

Poorly maintained, questionable

This property is not clearly marked and poorly maintained, there is absolutely no signage or maps as to where to go on the property. We double backed twice trying to find the entrance because the gate was closed, and then when we did enter the property it was completely overgrown with waist high grass with no indication of where to camp. Not only that, but do to the limited visibility of the ground we drove into some mud and almost got stuck, luckily we had an SUV. We eventually gave up and decided not to camp, essentially ruining our plans. And on a side note - when we asked a neighbor about the property they told the host had gotten in trouble with the township regarding renting the site and had to remove all the signage. Stay at your own risk...

Great place! It’s a nice open field where you can feel secluded. My dogs loved running around in all the tall grass. Fire place was nice with a couple of picnic tables to sit at.

Beautiful huge property, easy to find and Beth was very helpful! Only thing to be noted is there are lots of ticks in the grass so bring bug spray!
