I was blessed to find this quiet and relaxing spot. The hosts make you feel like you’re a friend using the property. Really welcoming. The bird watching was fabulous and I don’t fish but I hear it’s a good spot for it. I like to camp alone and felt pretty safe with the fence and locked gate. Can’t wait to visit again.

We had an amazing weekend at this beautiful spot on the river. So private and relaxing. The owners were great, made sure we had everything we needed and answered questions right away. We will definitely be back!!

The site name is definitely fitting. We had such a great experience. The fishing shack was a nice getaway from the rain while still being outside. With the wood stove right outside the door of the shack and the patio covered it was just perfect. The site fire pit is also a great option if the weather is nice enough for it. There is fishing right off the bank there if you're so inclined. Our 29 foot trailer fit no problem. The site we chose to park was level and easy to maneuver into. The road is primitive so not much traffic. Caution if you have dogs or kids, some people did use the road at excessive speeds. Susan was very hospitable and checked to see if we needed anything or had questions. We can not wait to get back there.

I didn’t get to stay after a last minute change on my part, but Susan was an exceptional host with fast and great communication! And she’s super kind and accommodating. Hope to stay next time.

This spot is perfect for a restful night’s sleep! It was my first stop on a week long solo camping trip, and was a perfect way to ease into it. Susan is a wonderful host, considerate both of space and needs. The shack is super charming, with a window facing the river. I ended up staying in my car for a better view of the rain, but used the shack to work on projects, prep my food, and relax until bedtime.
Seriously the best low-key camping experience!!

Great place! Quiet with river access.
We took our trailer for an overnight trip, spent time by the fire, walked to nearby beach. Close to town and a dump station is just across the river.
The morning was filled with gorgeous fog!

Wow what a wonderful experience. Susan was so responsive over messaging, and so kind and welcoming. I arrived after dark with my pup and even in the dark this property was beautiful. Looking forward to staying again in the summer!
