Serenity, solitude + access to amenities and city resources + absolutely beautiful Texas nature. Highly recommend, but hesitant to, because I want to keep this lovely property and host a secret for myself! And using a bucket toilet is actually pretty great, who knew! We ended up being the only campers for the weekend due to some rain the day we arrived - this didn't dampen our stay at all, except for our shoes which dried out the next day. We got a warm and quick rundown and greeting from the hosts as well as Sampson, the fluffy polar bear (great pyrenees) who walked us down to our campsite and visited periodically throughout the weekend. I fell in love with the walk to the campsite, it's JUST the right length: long enough to get into a good walking headspace, but not too long that you're waiting for it to end (depending on how heavy you pack the wagon!), it's between 10-15 minutes typically. And the distance of the campsites from the house and neighbors is just the right mix of solitude and proximity to city amenities (Elgin is a short drive away) we did hear some neighbors enjoying their Saturday night, but it was not a major disturbance. Jaime and Mike were lovely and accommodating, sharing stories about their strawbale house, beefarm, homemade duck pond, and property - which is mostly beautiful natural growth and tended by nature, except for the trails and campsites which are well maintained. Even though our first night was a bit rainy, the rest of the weather was perfect and breezy albeit a bit chilly down by the creek. We realized we hadn't brought enough bedding to keep us fully warm in the tent so we drove into town and picked up some supplies and got a cup of coffee and adventured around Main street - charming as anything. Also asked the hosts for firewood on Day 2 and were immediately accommodated with a prepared pile which we picked up in the wagon. The fire sure made a difference in our warmth the second night! Most of the campsites are heavily shaded, which is great for the daytime, but don't forget your flashlights since it gets pretty dark under the trees at night. Sites 1-3 are fairly close together (we stayed at 2, which was perfect), so it wouldn't have been the same amount of solitude if other campers were there at the same time, but there are a few other sites closer to the house that are beautiful (5 is SO cute and magical!). We had the best weekend getaway with just the perfect amount of privacy and comfort and town access and chit chat with the hosts. Will definitely be back.

This place is amazing. Camp site was secluded and scenic. Had to walk 10 min to site from parking area. Hosts are very welcoming and friendly.

My friend and I very much enjoyed staying on Jaimie's property. The creekside campsites are nestled in a ticket of trees, and we appreciated the very welcoming hosts providing firewood and comfortable chairs at the site. The best part was getting led back to the campsite my Jaimie's sweet Great Pyrenees, Sampson, who kept us company during the night and even chased off a raccoon! We would certainly stay here again!

Jaimie and her husband were so welcoming and do a great job maintaining their property. There are 3 main campsites, which are relatively close to each other so if there's other parties using the sites, it might not be as private as some would like but we didn't mind. Jaimie and her husband invited us to a fire they built at night and also gave us a tour of the house they built by themselves. I'd stay here again!
