The campsite was great and very private with beautiful night sky views! There is a little poison ivy around the site and a lot at the gate entrance. Our Honda Fit did fine off-road/ getting to the site. The host’s description and direction were perfect!

Great place to get away! Nice sites. Grass is a little long, but as expected since it’s in a secluded location. Site was pretty clean when we got there! We took in a Mazda 3 hatchback. 10/10 would recommend something with clearance. Grass and grave hits the bottom of the car the whole way up.(yes there’s a gravel path up to the site). Great place to stay! Would stay there again

This was my first Hipcamp experience and my family and I had a great time. We stayed at campsite #1 and even though you are in someone’s “backyard” this campsite felt like you were miles down a trail in the back country. This fire pit area was very well set up and the amount (lack) of trash was a welcomed site versus many public campsites. I picked up one glass Pepsi bottle and a few bottle caps and that was it. I have already started planning a return trip with more people as the layout of the campsite can accommodate a solo backpacking tent or a field full of 10 person tents and anything in between. Directions were straight forward and easy to find. Definitely recommend.

John’s place was really easy to get to. The camping spot in the woods was absolutely perfect to stay cool and have a great time! The grass in the field was EXTREMELY HIGH. So high our dogs and kids got lost in it. John said it was somewhat high but I was not expecting it to be up to my waist. For the price we paid, I would have expected the grass to be at least cut in certain areas. Besides the grass, it was an awesome spot! Also not that close to the water but can easily find it!

Great spot and John wad great! He gave awesome directions which really helped for getting there in the dark. It was a bit of a struggle getting up the hill in my Prius but I managed!

John was a wonderful host. Very helpful with my questions and making sure I knew how to get there. I stayed overnight with my leashed dog and enjoyed the open field//seclusion. My favorite part was star gazing before sleep. Ground is perfect for pitching a tent. I did not utilise the fire circle, but it looked great! I would definitely recommend this site and visit again in the future.

View from top of hill. Field is easy to drive and soft to sleep on!I could have pitched my tent anywhere. So perfect for easy camping!!!Enjoyed the end of fall foliage. Most of the site is a grassy field, but it’s surrounded by forest so super private!!!!! Bell by the fire circle
