Carolyn was a great host and the property was gorgeous! Plenty of space for the dog to run around and a nice sunset as well.

Wonderful yard for camping and a dark sky for watching the Milky Way. Easy to find as well. Thank you Carolyn!

Beautiful property next to lovely home. Directions were easy to follow. Met Carolyn and her daughter upon arrival. Both were both very welcoming; enjoyed chatting with them. Was able to use house bathroom facilities by texting first. Great stay! I would definitely recommend.

Perfect spot to camp for the night with my dog while driving cross country. Carolyn, the host, was most helpful in helping me select a spot that fit my needs. The spot was clean, comfortable and convenient. Best of all I felt safe at this location. I was able to take a nice walk with my dog.

Carolyn and her husband were kind, helpful hosts! Had a great chat with them, but were also given all the privacy we needed. The site for the tent was great, flat and comfortable. We had access to drinking water and a bathroom. Nice area! We really appreciated our stay :)

This was one of the most peaceful places I’ve ever camped. Excellent amenities. Grass so soft I didn’t even need a sleep pad. Also excellent local food recommendations!

I had a very good time at Carolyn's campsite. It's a beautiful wide open space: a great place for stargazing. I would highly recommend it if you're camping on a budget!

Carolyn was a great host! Her property is lovely and very peaceful. I also really enjoyed meeting their little grey kitty! Super friendly and affectionate. I was traveling alone, and reserved this site because I read another review from a woman who was traveling alone saying she felt very safe and comfortable at Carolyn's, and I can wholeheartedly say the same!

We winter camped in our vehicle one night at Rural Respite while driving cross country. Carolyn was super responsive to our initial questions about reserving the site and was great about communication and making sure we had an easy place to park our vehicle when we arrived. We had a peaceful night's rest and it was well worth the short drive to get out in the country and enjoy a quiet overnight stay away from the interstate and typical RV parks. Great host, great experience!
