The Woodland Retreat provides an opportunity to pitch your tents, hang your hammocks, or set up a canopy for your fabulous gathering or secluded getaway. Site #1 has a fire pit. Both sites are surrounded by lovely pines, hickories and surrounded by ferns, wildflowers, and enjoyed by the local wildlife of whitetail deer, rabbits, raccoons, turtles. Stargazing at night, listening to owls while snuggling up in a sleeping bag is a great way to spend an evening. The site #2 is farther from the house and has a burn barrel. Both places offer an outstanding experience far from sounds of traffic and busy lives. Great place to see the stars and identify constellations with no light pollution. The night sounds are awesome, too.

Carol was very welcoming and her property is beautiful! Definitely would love to go back some day.

First time trying out the iKamper roof top tent! Two adults and a 40 lb. dog all fit comfortably.

Feels completely isolated, even though it is not far from a neighborhood. No noise or lights from traffic or houses. Several trails through the forest for short hikes.

Carol is the most welcoming host. She was very accommodating and friendly to my boyfriend and I during our stay. Her acres of forest are beautiful, and there is much to explore and get lost in. We saw many birds during our stay, too. Would highly recommend the experience.

We spent one night at campsite #2. Carol was a great host and helped us take our things to the site in her golf cart. As fairly novice campers, we had a lot of questions and we appreciated her patience and helpfulness! We would certainly recommend her campsites for a peaceful weekend getaway!

We had a great time at Carol's! The site is private, clean, and well maintained - the added bonus of the golf cart to shuttle our equipment from the driveway was fantastic. We got rained on the entire time we were there, but still had an amazing time! Can't recommend Carol's place enough.

Carol was amazing and made the experience better than I imagined. It was the first time I took my kids (7 and 6) camping and they are still talking about how much fun they had. There are trails, wildlife and it was secluded enough to feel like we were deep in the woods, but within walking distance to Carols home if we needed anything.

We were very excited to see the site, it felt like you were in the middle of a wilderness, but within a safe distance to the host. The only negatives was the potty wasn’t private, but in the wide open. I was with another family with a male. The worst part was a neighbor must have a dog kennel because there were many dogs barking all together, so both nights the barking was annoying. We even heard in the distance someone yelled, “ shut up”. It’s a shame because the sounds of bugs and birds was so peaceful, but drown out. I would still recommend because Carol is very nice and her place is so beautiful, just bring ear plugs.
