Michele was very friendly and helpful. Because I was camping with family living in different places, we ended up changing the specifics of our reservation a few times and she was totally fine with that. We also arrived very late because we left after work and Michele was totally good with that.
The campsites were very spacious, had a nice fire pit and seating. The place was easy to find. There was a bit of Friday night road noise but it didn't go very late. One thing I will say is that it had rained recently and so there were many mosquitos so pack bug spray if it has rained recently.
We were in town for a family reunion taking place at a different location so didn't spend a lot of time at the site here. It served us well and we're grateful to Michele for her hospitality and helpfulness!
10 out of 10 - absolutely recommend
When we pulled up and saw how close to the house the campsites were, I have to admit we were slightly skeptical. However, Michele and her family were such wonderful hosts that we felt equally welcome and secluded. The area was MASSIVE and incredibly clean, with a cool little trail into the woods. There was enough tree coverage to stay shaded in some part of camp through most of the day, while still leaving a huge open sky for stargazing at night. We were there over the 4th of July, and the family did their own little display of fireworks that was EVERYTHING you could ask for in a big city display- but super private. They invited us up front to watch with them, but we had such an excellent view from our site that we decided to stay around our campfire and watch. Really close to multiple boat and kayak launches, as well as many local beaches. Groceries, gas, liquor stores, and several restaurants within 5 minute drive.
10 out of 10 - would ABSOLUTELY recommend.
Firefly show til midnight!
I had a lovely stay. The 3 shady sites are along the wood's edge of this working farm. The tall grasses make for great habitat for birds, rabbits, and fireflies. The sites are dry, breezy and level with a picnic table, glider chair, and fire ring. Water from the spigot was delicious. Nice woods to explore. I didnt get a visit from the cat, but made friends with the 2 sweet dogs. I got a dozen gorgeous eggs from the neighbor.
