Staying at John’s place was so peaceful. You’re surrounded by amazing pines and the Ausable river wraps around the property giving each camp site its own beautiful space to relax and enjoy. The sites are very well kept as the ground was level and soft and the fire pit was awesome. John is a great host, friendly and accommodating. I would stay 1000 times again if I can!

Nothing like a nice campfire!The fire pit is built with care. Relaxing riverside breakfast. Waking up to the sounds of nature is the best.

John was super helpful and accommodating. Everything was perfectly set up for us. Beautiful setting. He went above and beyond helping us back an RV into our spot. Would absolutely recommend.

Great stay. Host was great. Campsite was nice and secluded right on the river but close enough to town that it wasn’t a hassle getting into town. Would definitely visit again.

John was extremely friendly and showed us all around the site. The sites are all right on the water with beautiful views and the soothing noise of the Ausable river at night. Literally, the most beautiful campsites I have ever stayed at, with sandy beaches, a swimming hole, and wildflowers lining the river. The porta-potty was exceptionally clean, too!

We are looking forward to staying here again, for sure!
