Michelle’s site was perfect! We are avid campers and this offered the perfect balance of amenities and seclusion. It was a trip for my wife’s birthday and we could not have been happier.

Michelle responded within minutes to our same-day request to camp on her property. She was easy to reach and helpful in coordinating our stay. Upon arrival, she gave us a brief tour of the property, sold us some fire wood, and let us know about the other guests we might see staying elsewhere on the property that evening.

The campsite location is very easy to access and is tucked away in a little alcove in the woods. The space was very clean and private - a perfect little camping nook (just as advertised).

Michelle is a super sweet and helpful host who goes out of her way to make you feel welcome and safe on her property. So glad we found her listing on Hipcamp!

This was a perfect camping spot on Michelle's property! Spacious, private, and quiet. We enjoyed seeing her beautiful horse occasionally nibbling in the pasture right next to the camp area. It was level, dry, and perfect for our set up. Though surrounded by bushes and some trees, the site is in the sun and per another review, we brought a screened canopy to sit in at times. The outhouse by her barn is a distance from the site. We came prepared with our own "Luggable Loo" devices (REI, Amazon, some hardware or sports equip. stores with camping sections have this stuff). Michelle was great to talk too and her whole property is lovely. We'll definitely come back some time.

Awesome spot, exactly as described. She even had firewood and a firepit and brought the wood over so we wouldn’t have to carry it. 4th of July fireworks from the neighbors were an added bonus. Our daughter loved seeing the horses. This is a Great site, well maintained and peaceful! highly recommend!

Had a wonderful time here, would recommend and definitely go back. Some things I would take with you are firewood, grill, water, shade canopy, and a toilet system. This is no more than a nook in the woods. It is perfectly private and rustic. I spent 3 nights here and it was incredibly relaxing. If you are looking for a place to truly escape you will love it. If you need all the creature comforts this is not the place you are looking for, no internet and spotty cell service and nothing nearby ! Some people dig that, some don’t. I loved it but there were a few things I would do differently next time.

My girlfriend and I had such a great time camping at Michelle’s property. It really felt like we were in our own little section of woods despite being just minutes from town. Michelle was an extremely gracious host. We will definitely be booking another stay in the future!

One of the best spots weve hipcamped at!
The spot is private, super lush and simply perfect!
Michelle is an amazing host and such a beautiful human being! We enjoyed the farm so much, petting the horses and feeding them apples, hanging out with the kitties that roam the property and enjoying the calm and serene farmland!
She also offers firewood, tiki torches, sodas, waters, beers etc. Our last day here we were blessed with a huge rainbow across the sky! We will definitely be back! Thank you!

The perfect getaway for us. My husband and I stayed with our 3 German shepherds for 3 nights. The nook is extremely private. You can’t see anyone and they can’t see you. My kind of place! We bought baskets of wood and rented tiki torches. Michelle brought them right over to the campsite and even pounded the torches into the ground for us right where we wanted them. The horses were super friendly. Came running for attention and nose scratches. We will absolutely stay again. The site is huge. Plenty of space to sprawl out and have a few tents set up if you have a large family. The only negative I can think of is that the site has no shade. It’s full sun pretty much the entire day this time of year. It was a very hot weekend. We had a canopy so that helped. Thank you Michelle for your hospitality. We really enjoyed ourselves. Much needed break from life for a few days.
