Get out of the city and come camp with us, or without us. We are so lucky to live in a most beautiful place, and are happy to share it with our guests. During your stay, you will have access to 80 acres of open vistas, mature forests, big rolling hills, bright stars, spring fed lakes, ponds, and clear sandy creeks including seeps and springs that originate on site. 

Pick your spot to pitch a tent overlooking a lake, nestled in the woods, or high up on a hill overlooking distant views. Relax in a hammock, go hiking, canoeing, fishing, swimming, or play some disc golf. 

But please, if you choose to camp here (and we would love for you to do so) keep it simple both in your communications and in requests. Please put up canoes, kayaks, paddles where and how you found them. And most importantly, enjoy this beautiful place while leaving no trace.

We love sharing this experience with friends. We hope you enjoy your stay here, and we look forward to hosting you!

FALL is here! The temps are getting cooler and the leaves are turning beautiful shades of golden yellow, red, and brown.

This is the second time I've camped here, up on the hill with a view over the trees and up to the stars. It's the perfect place to be free, in peace and quiet with just the sound of wildlife and the wind. I leave here feeling recharged and grounded with new insights.

The place was really gorgeous with sandbars, clear streams of water, stone benches, tall trees and a huge pond. Alissa was very hospitable. She helped me with starting my bonfire and choosing a nice spot close to waters as I prefer that. Her dog stayed at my camp overnight and was very friendly 😃. The place was clean and quiet and is the perfect place to enjoy bird watching. Their organic eggs are the best and is a must try.

I tent camped here on top of a hill and it was so nice. It was a peaceful and private escape with incredibly diverse wildlife, plants and animals everywhere. There was diverse topography too, which I appreciated. The environment was so healthy and balanced. Everywhere I looked there was some neat little critter doing it's thing recycling nature.

I watched the sun go down and the moon come up through the trees on the hill and went to sleep with the croaking of frogs and the loeing of cattle in the distance. The farm fresh eggs with olive oil around the campfire was so delicious. I left feeling energized!

Check out this hidden gem! Places like this are few and far between where the owners work so hard to make something humans and animals can enjoy.

What a great experience. There's a lot of great spots to pitch a tent and the property is large enough to feel like you're the only one camping. The property is full of life and felt like nature is all around you. We loved watching the ducks and geese fly in and land in the lake every evening. Our two girls spent hours playing by the creek. Looking forward to a return visit!

It was a great place to camp with kids in tow. We all had a good time and camped by the glass pond. You can camp anyplace you like as long as it does not disturb others. Alissa met us at the drive up to their home on property and handed us our chicken feed. Was told to have a great time and to enjoy ourselves. Shower is great, potty is a so so for us big butters but an awesome way to return to the earth! It's a 2 to 5 min walk from the Glass pond to the potty. The kids enjoyed the live birds, the dogs and the use of the aluminum canoe. Please turn it upside down after use! I would recommend this for first time campers or hardened campers as well. The Lily pond has small to medium big mouth bass. I caught a couple and lost a few. Thank you very much Alissa! Even though we got rained on hard, it was a great place and we all had a great time meeting you, David and the fur babies! It's true, the dogs will listen to you when you say Go Home! Maybe we shall come back again sometime! You have a beautiful place! Appreciate the hospitality!
