History: The pond was originally an old mill pond in the 1920's. It does feature a long dam. It was first opened for Fishing in 1956 by Mr. Lee Baysden himself. The store/office is the original detached kitchen from his old home. The old home place is the white home located just up from the store/office. We still use the store today and it has so much history and character. The pond was owned and fished until mid-late 1990's. A hurricane destroyed the dam and the pond and land was sold. The next owner dug the pond more into the lake that it is today and rebuilt the dam. It was never opened back up for fishing during this time and kept private. My husband and I bought the lake and land in July 2020 and began our process to clearing it back up. It was overgrown and covered in algae. We created JCO, Juniper Creek Outfitters and Guide Service. Our mission was to preserve the land and lake from being developed into housing and have a nice place in our community for families and fishing. During the Pandemic we realized how important it is for families to come together and to get outside. Enjoy nature, the views, animals, and spending quality time together. These are the moments we live for.
All guests camping, fishing, or guided hunts must have permits or approval from us so it is deemed private land. We have hosted two fishing tournaments this year including a kids tournament. We plan to have another event in October.

Fun and relaxation overload!
Fantastic place to camp, fish and kayak! Spent labor day weekend here and was completely blown away by the friendly faces and genuine hospitality by the owners. We enjoyed every last second of our stay and did not want to leave, but we will definitely be back very soon!
Little piece of heaven
This site is quiet, clean and the host/owners are friendly They will answer any questions in a timely manner. Been looking for a nice quiet RV park and this is it. We will be back… a lot.
Great place and sunsets by the pond
This is a great place to spend a few nights or come for a long stay during the winter. The pond is nicely stocked and we had a great time renting kayaks and fishing here. The area is super quiet day and night and the nights are very dark, perfect for stargazing, easy to get in and out will make us come here often.
Thanks for the great place!
Great piece of land by a pond, manager and owned by a young family. Very quiet at night. Electric and water available.
They also sell fishing license, tackle, firewood etc. Would definitely come back.
