Paul has self-certified that Hipcamp’s COVID-19 Safety Standards have been implemented at this listing. See what’s being done here.

You can camp in in-between the fruit trees and wait to see wildlife and horses in the field or camp in the trees with 40ft sloped ravines dropping down into a creek. If we have 10 deer visable at 5, it is a slow night. We have an average in the twenties, and just shy of 50 during the summer and fall. Lots of room to explore.

I am not sure which site we ended up at, he has a few options and he gave us the pick. The one we ended up at was in a secluded wooded area. We loved it. We specifically looked for an area with little to no ppl interaction because our dogs bark at everything and we hate being a burden. This was perfect. We knew there was another site across the clearing but couldn’t see them. This location requires you to go through fences so it’s a tiny bit unfriendly as in if you want to leave you feel slightly odd doing so. Host was amazing. Not exactly sure where the bathrooms were. It was a short trip for us so we didn’t need to find it if you catch my drift. The location we choose would not have been friendly for a roof top tent. The one across the clearing may have been, I think their vehicle was in the woods. We did gross tent camping. I would come back here to this specific site or the one across the clearing.

It was really beautiful and relaxing. I’m not sure which site number I had but I had the one the fire pit and hammock. Which is the only one with a fire pit. This site was so beautiful just admiring all of Jehovah’s creation. I suggest taking bug spray there is a lot of bugs, but they Honestly do not bother you unless your like really sweaty and hot, I parked deep in the woods with my suv tent so I got to experience panoramic view of the 40ft ravine down to the creek. The host were very nice people he let me choose any site they wasn’t being used, and I really appreciate them keeping everything natural and untouched, they don’t touch the grass they leave everything as is which brings the natural beauty of this place, you can walk all around the yard/site but the grass was so high up to my stomach, I was scared a snake was hiding out in the grass, I don’t ideally suggest this place for young children with so many bugs around and high grass they could be affected by any of this, but it’s all your choice, But over all it was great experience.

Just be sure to bring spray, only toiletries, table food, basically anything you feel is needed

Great views of the sunset and incredible star gazing- even saw a shooting star. We often saw deer and many turkey vultures as well as some bats at dusk. Felt very private and relaxed. Host was very friendly and met us at the front of their house and drove out to show us our camping spot.( site 3)

Site three is set back on a wooded bluff. Very level and secluded site. Would stay here again.

Great stay there! Site 1 has a good amount of privacy (in a wooded area) and plenty of space for all of our camping stuff. Plus the host was very helpful with any questions we had.

It was a lovely spot with a hammock, fire pit and plenty of shade. Couldn't drive the van back there, but the field was fine for parking.
