The property was beautiful and so peaceful. Water and electric hookups for RV were in good shape and the site was level and easy to maneuver.

Accommodations were perfect. The privacy was just what we were looking for. Very easy to get to. Highly recommend for a 1-2 night stay. Animals were an added bonus!

John was a gracious , helpful, non intrusive host. Camping there was just right for me to stop in for the night as I traveled, nice green space to walk a loop around lake and fields with my dog. Extra nice to have electricity plug in and water right at my tent site, plus real shower and toilet. Did not use the
available screen porch covered kitchen but what an addition for me if it were raining! Will strongly consider next time i pass this way. Thanks John for opening your nice setting to me.

From the start, we enjoyed every minute of our stay with John & Emily. John and his sweet daughter, Samantha greeted us upon arrival...making sure that we got situated in our site okay. Samantha even shared some of her delicious homemade chocolate chip cookies with us! I enjoyed walking the trail through the wildflowers & around the beautiful lake. It was so relaxing watching the birds flying in and out of the gourds and the beautiful white horses running around & grazing. The clean restroom/shower for us to use was a nice feature.

I really thought the place was wonderful. The directions were clear. John and his wife were quite friendly and very accommodating. They have a beautiful lake and very nice walking path. Overall a great trip. I do it again.

John’s Moon Lake Retreat is outstanding: clean, level and grassy tent area, convenient parking, and great amenities! We especially appreciated access to the refrigerator to re-freeze each our cooler’s ice packs! Beautiful views, and friendly horses - we’ll be back!
