Enter the Campground from Township Road 102 only. The GPS sometimes will try to bring you in a gravel driveway from CR 58, this is not correct. Keep going down 58 and turn left on Township Rd 102

Enter the Campground from Township Road 102 only. The GPS sometimes will try to bring you in a gravel driveway from CR 58, this is not correct. Keep going down 58 and turn left on Township Rd 102

Our little campground is nestled in the corner of one of our pasture fields and surrounded by trees and nature. There is a rustic driveway all the way down to the camping area. There is a larger open area the campers can set up tents and also multiple sites in the woods where campers can enjoy the seclusion and beauty of nature. There is a small stream below the campground that they are welcome to explore and we have some trails mowed that can be hiked. We are a pet friendly campground but we just ask that you keep a close eye on your pets and don't allow them to chase or disturb the cattle on the farm. There are fields down around the campground and in the spring campers will quite often see cattle and even new baby calves with their mothers. The cattle are very tame but don't try to pet them. There is a 3/4 acre pond above the campground that the campers are welcome to fish in the pond and if they swim they must do it at their own risk. 

Price is based on 11 years old and older, Children 10 and under are free. The lower area campground that has signs say reservations only called Kirmit’s Bottom is only to be camped in when approved by Matt. It is for larger groups. We do have a couple of sites also that you must have 4x4 to get to and you also need to talk to Matt beforehand. We try to provide firewood available for purchase at all times but there will be times when I’m not able to do that so you can bring a saw or hatchet and cut any down wood in the woods. Also toilet paper is some thing that you should bring because at times the Porta-Johns run out. If you are a bicyclist coming from the trail make sure you exit the trail at Walmart and map up county road 58 to get to the camp (2.5miles), that way is blacktop otherwise it will bring you in the gravel side.

Primitive camping has its own risks associated with it, anyone camping at Turkey Hollow acknowledges that risk by camping here and will not hold Turkey Hollow or its owner liable for any injuries or damage that might take place while camping here.

Very clean campsites, they had a fire ring and picnic table and it was also nice to have porta-johns near by. The golden retriever was very friendly and also made some good company for an afternoon. Overall great campsite if you're looking for something some-what primitive (not far from town, cell service, etc ) I would definitely recommend

Awesome secluded camping. Super clean. Riding bicycles across states and these are some of the gnarliest hills I’ve seen.

The campground at Turkey Hollow was great, lots of trees, nice spots to camp. Where we camped, It was a bit far from the portapottie, so that was tough in the middle of the night.

If you’re bike touring, the road coming into the campground has some steep inclines on County Road 58. We chose this over the really steep dirt road option. Turkey Hollow is at the bottom of the property and wider tires work better on the gravel driveway going down into the Hollow.
If you’re riding an overpacked bike or one that’s heavy, you will be walking your bike up and down the hills.
