Upon arrival they had freshly mowed the site for us. Installed a grill and a brand new fire pit for use. The maintenance and owners were very friendly and professional. Allowing us access to showers and bathrooms on site. Other campers along the water were also extremely friendly and respectful to each and every camper. Will be coming back as much as we can!

Beautiful location and close to home which made it perfect for my family and I. Unfortunately, we could not stay overnight due to unforeseen work obligations; therefore, I can’t speak to overnight conditions, but very private and very beautiful. We will definitely be back.

The pond was nice and the area is well secluded but the sites are not sites and you have to hike around the lake in tall grass just to get to the bath house. The only problem we had was that the bath house was soooo far away from the tent area that really they should say its primitive tent camping.

My boys had a blast. Brought their bikes and poles and both were used the entire stay...even after they were supposed to be in bed. Every time they got a worm in the water they pulled a fish out.

I loved the space and the lake. My truck got stuck because of heavy rain and they helped tow me out! Really happy about that.

One thing i can say is on Sunday a DJ started playing music from across the lake for a few hours. We took a walk into the woods and could still hear it about 3 miles out. It didn't last long, so it wasn't that much of a bother, but it's still something I didnt expect. If i would've known it would've been easier to handle.

Despite that, our stay was amazing and we plan on coming back again. Thank you for everything!
