Beautiful property, with chickens and goats there to meet & greet us when we arrived. We saw a couple of horse & buggies pass by on the road. The stars were amazing, and we got to gaze at the milky way all night. Took a walk around the field in the morning and found some wild blackberries (yum!). Host was informative, had a bucket toilet available just in case, and the fire pit was a great touch. Sunrise was beautiful as well.
Very happy camping at dave's!
Dave's place was an excellent place for my son and me. We arrived by car with a canvas tent and set up in beautiful field with lightning bugs galore. Dave greeted us and shared local knowledge and his vision for the place...I recommend this. It was our first ever HipCamp experience, and a good first impression was made.
Dave, was a very gracious and hospitable host. He met us when we arrived, reviewed a map of the property, and offered feedback on good camping spots. There are many trails traversing the farm that my son and I greatly enjoyed. The communal fire pit was stocked with wood and located in a spot that allowed for amazing star gazing. We also were able to observe Amish horse and buggies travelling along the road at night. A most enjoyable stay at Dave's property!
Awesome host. beautiful quiet land
Fantastic land and host. Definitely would stay there again if I was camping in the area. Dave is very nice and will help in any way he can to make your stay better. If you decide to stay here keep the area clean when you leave for Dave and future campers
