This place was just what we needed. Open space yet easily able to set up in the shade against the long tree line. We had a great time watching all the wild turkeys cruising across the property and the vultures chilling on top of some distant powered poles. Harry was super friendly and accommodating. I would definitely stay here again.

We only talked to Harry and his wife when we first arrived. They were a pleasure to meet and very personable. The site is great, nicely mowed thick grass, very clean. Excellent fire pit. It’s quiet out there and some good wildlife came for a visit. Good star show also.
