Can’t speak highly enough about this property. Not only is it gorgeous, but I was made to feel so at home—I was greeted so kindly, set up with a fire pit and all the fixings, and even given a (delicious) beer! Really loved my time here, watching the sun set and the stars dot the sky…one of the best camping experiences I’ve had in quite some time. Stay here!

April and her husband were awesome hosts. Stars were great and worth a little trip off the beaten path. Also all the little restaurants around here were damn good for dinner and breakfast. If I find myself in SD again I’ll make an effort to stop here again.

This is such a beautiful place to stay, having come from Pittsburgh it was so refreshing to experience the peace of the country. The sunset, night sky and morning fog across the pond and plains were all highlights of our stay. April, Clint and their family couldn’t have been better hosts, we highly recommend staying here if you have the chance!
