The RV sites are next to the creek and have 110 electric. 30 amp for site #1 and 20 amp for site # 2. Enjoy the sound of the water as it passes over the rocks and the Winnie of a mini horse or the low moo from Rusty. The barn is full of farm animals to visit. There is a pond across the road for use. Swim, kayak or use the paddleboat. No fishing is allowed for safety purposes. Hike the trails to the river and back and around the pond side of the road. There is a nice grassy area in front of the barn for games like volleyball or cornhole. There's always something to do.

The tent sites were pretty amazing... Especially 1 and 2. We stayed at the RV site, but walked to the tent sites where the views were great!

Hosts we're SOO friendly and helpful. Can't recommend them enough!

The kids loved the farm animals and could see the horses and rusty from the windows of their bunks!

Potable Water was not convenient to access, although the hosts graciously offered to fill up by their house... Next time I'll bring water with me. Other then that though, everything was good as can be! We'll stay there again soon for sure!

This hip camp is exceptional. It greatly exceeded our expectations and the hosts were both very friendly. I’d recommend this stay to anyone in the area. We had a class b RV and the site was easy to access with several walking paths and river behind it. I’ll definitely look them up again if I’m in the area.

Jay and his wife were great hosts. We had a secluded area to camp beside a creek. We saw Rusty the cow and bought some honey made from Jay’s bees! Definitely recommend Rusty’s Retreat!

Jay was an amazing host! He was very welcoming and kind. He provided more than we had expected and we enjoyed his explanations of the farm. The camping site was very clean, well-maintained and felt very private. Our kids loved staying here and especially had a great time watching and interacting with the farm animals.
I would highly recommend this place for anyone looking for a memorable and unique camping experience :)
