The Animal Santuary was a great stay for my family. The kids loved watching the pigs, cows, donkey and horses. We were provided with electrical hook up for our RV. There were other RV's and for reference we had about 10-15 ft between each. It worked great for our stay.

The animal sanctuary was a great weekend get away! When we first pulled up, we were a bit wary of the lack of room for tent campers, but we walked down through the woods to a clearing that was absolutely perfect. We had plenty of room and privacy while being in close enough proximity of the animals without living in the smell of them. Ms. Debi was kind enough to give us a full farm tour and she’s truly incredible! Her heart and love for these creatures does not stop giving. We were lucky enough to get to see her 7 6-week old puppy rescues which was amazing. We also loved the cows! Thanks for a great stay!

Cute little place. Our spot was nothing but red Carolina clay so tracking in was unavoidable.
The septic was higher than our port so couldn’t drain either.
It was way out in the middle of the country but was a very nice and quiet place to be. Seeing horses every day was nice and the stars are so beautiful without having the haze of city lights.

We absolutely LOVED this little place. Debi and David are wonderful people. They do such an amazing job saving these animals. If I could had fit the cow in my camper, I may had tried to take her home with me 🐄 💗. We will be back again for several reasons, (beautiful lake, quiet and peaceful sanctuary, And I’m already missing Foley the donkey and my cow friend). I highly recommend this place and urge any animal lovers out there to take a few nights refuge here and meet these beautiful little fur babies!

Easy in, nice level spot to park. Easy access to power and water. Very little road noise and traffic. Pleasant hosts who gave us as much privacy as we wanted. Would stay again.
