Excellent location!! Private 8 acres, didn't see a soul. Well kept compost outhouse and nice spot by the river!

We happen to be there by ourselves which made it even more wonderful. The bluffs, the large upper site for our camper and the setting was so relaxing. We couldn't have asked for a better place to unwind. Went for a dip twice in the Root River and saw an eagle in the big old dead tree on the back side just below the bluffs. Amazing!!!

The site is very large, and is split between an upper site near the entrance, and a lower site near the river. Both sites have fire rings. We parked our teardrop camper at the upper site, but still enjoyed spending time at the lower site. It was well maintained, and it felt like we had an entire campground to ourselves. We had a great time, and would definitely stay here again.

The property was great. Loads of scenery and you have it all to yourself. Plenty of wildlife and the fishing was good too (nothing big but plenty of action. We had beautiful weather so that really helped. I will be back.

Nice secluded site and a beautiful area. We stayed at the first upper camps site with our trailer camper and took the short walk to the river with our daughter and dogs. The loved playing in the stream.

This place is MAGICAL!!! The fact that it is only YOU to roam the great mowed trails, areas along the river not worrying you’ll run into someone is so incredible feeling! Eric than you for sharing your slice of heaven!
