A peaceful and quiet place.
Absolutely lovely area! The creek was amazing, the grounds were very well suited for comfortable camping. Keith has made a well marked loop path with solar lights for a casual evening easy hike. The restroom was impeccably clean and free from the usual "camp restroom bug friends". This is a pristinely kept camp area without losing the camping feel. An excellent balance of amenities and outdoorsness. We loved it! Can't wait to return!!!
This is the perfect, most magical place to tent camp if you love hiking, being secluded but also love a running toilet. We've been camping here for a few years and every time we return, Keith has added thoughtful touches to the site that make it even better (if that was possible).
Great campsite. We loved having a clean bathroom with a toilet and sink. Wifi was a plus since we did not have cell service. Our daughter loved walking the creek and skipping rocks. Very peaceful and secluded spot. Would love to come back.
I love this campsite! The bathroom and shed are really convenient, he even has tiki torches ( bring your own oil), firewood, 3 picnic tables and an amazing rock table. The creek is great and makes for a cool hike.
Great camping for dogs and children
What a beautiful place Keith has shared with the world. It is truly a camper’s paradise, especially with dogs. Lots to do - play in the creek, find fossils, walk the trails and plenty of space to let the dogs roam free. Plenty of room for 3-4 families to have a wonderful stay. The bathroom and Wi-Fi are great luxuries to have as well. I will definitely be back!
Quiet and peaceful weekend getaway
This was our second time staying here and I think this time was even more perfect! The property and amenities are very well thought out. Keith will meet you upon arrival and is extremely helpful if you have any questions. On this trip, we didn’t even see him as we already knew where we were going.
We had 2 adults, 4 kids and 4 dogs with us. The kids (and the dogs) played in the stream from sunup til sundown. There is a large stone slab table perfect for meal prep and several seating areas that are perfect to eat or play games.
Keith’s land is exceptionally private and quiet; exactly what we were looking for! We are planning to make this an annual trip, but the kids are already asking if we can come back before summer is over. Don’t hesitate to book this property; you won’t regret it.
Go-to spot for a relaxing weekend
This is our favorite campsite that we've found on hipcamp- we've been back multiple times over the years, and will continue to visit in the future! The site is beautiful, relaxing, and the perfect spot to get away from everyday life for the weekend. Keith is an excellent host- he's always quick to respond to messages and just a really nice guy. Having been to the site over the past 3 years, it's clear that Keith takes great care with the upkeep and maintenance of the property.
