Hands down one of the best Hipcamp we've stayed at! Btw, we've been to a few. The goats were adorable welcoming us as we set up camp. Super cool having a wakeup call from the resident rooster ( complete with a snooze cockadoo). The grounds were beautiful and well kept. Bathhouse was so charming! Wish we could have stayed longer.

Great bathhouses with showers!Loved the ponds!Little red hen with her egg.Eggzotictinytrailer.com

This was the most enjoyable camping experience our family has ever had. The host was incredible and gave us a tour of the beautiful property, which includes many ponds, a swamp and a river. It’s full of wildlife and fun little gnome homes! The tent site were well managed and spacious. The bathhouse was amazing. Could not speak more highly of this campground. Highly recommend!

Fantastic. Beautiful place.our host upon arriving offered us fresh eggs and gave us a tour on a large golf cart! The place is beautifully laced out grassy trails lots of ponds and a spectacular swamp area.about a mile hike back to the river the is a covered pavilion. Goats let out in the afternoon did not bother you but were friendly and fun to watch! The hosts were great.

We had a great time staying here! Unfortunately, we had to leave early due to weather issues, but the night we did stay was amazing! It was quiet and easy to find. We really enjoyed our time to get away from tech and people and just enjoy each other and nature. The bathrooms were well kept also. We will definitely be coming back to explore more once the weather warms up!

They canceled on us but apparently did not let Hipcamp know. I kept getting reminders of the reservation which totally confused me. I called the site with no response.
We ended up having to stay in an Airbnb which really broke our budget.
I am not happy with the way this played out.

This place was just what we needed to reset . It was the prefect spot with a group of friends to hang and let our children to be with friends and gather. Can’t wait to go back 💙

Cute campground and very welcoming groundskeeper (Thank you!). She offered me & my two dogs a ride to some great spots to get photos. I was camping alone for the first time and this spot was perfect for that. The bathrooms have running water so you can shower.
