If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
We've camped here a few times before and will continue to come back again and again. Our stays are always so relaxing, with beautiful views of the river, walks along the shoreline, kayaking, and fishing. Craig goes out of his way to make his land and campsite just perfect for his guests. Each time we visit, the site has a new addition to make our stay just great!
It was a great place to stay! Beautiful spot on the river! We stayed here with a few friends and enjoyed a wonderful weekend! Craig was a great host and made us feel comfortable and informed us what was all around! Secluded and private but close to town if you need anything or want to explore! We definitely will be back next season!
Relaxation, privacy, and nature!
Relaxation, privacy, and nature! This was our second visit to Craig’s land and we’ll be back again. Beautiful views of the river, trails to wander, a pier to fish off, and kayaks to get out on the water and paddle. Craig provided chairs, picnic tables and benches, a fire pit/ring, and cooking grates. He also left us a generous amount of firewood. There is an outhouse on site as well. As I said, we’ll be back again, and again!
A 5 acre campsite in southern Door County, with a levelled and gravelled area to park your vehicle at the top. It slopes down to the Ahnapee River, with a rowboat and kayaks nestled on the riverbank. Beautiful views. Next time I may bring a bike and, just for fun, row across the river to go for a ride on the Ahnapee River State Trail. (I haven’t explored the opposite bank for a convenient spot to bring the bike ashore.)
Beautiful place, well groomed but you feel like you’re in the middle of no where. The river runs along the entire property and the fishing is epic! Last but not least, the owner, Craig, is a great guy and will help out with any requests or questions.
Fantastic place to camp. Craig had the spot set up with wood, chairs, picnic benches, even some lawn games. The location worked great for hiking the Ice Age Trail. Highly recommended.
My step mom and I took a break out of our busy schedules! Stayed this weekend (labor day weekend 2021) almost a year after my father's passing of brain cancer. We shared alot of laughs, memories and had a very peaceful time! Falling asleep to the coyotes howl felt like we were sleeping under the stars and waking up to the sunrise over the river was breath taking! Just what we needed. Craig was a fabulous host and allowed our 4 dogs to wonder off leash on the mowed trails and paths! Bird watching with bird dogs was plentiful And exciting! We are Red Dog Adventures (fb) so we are always looking for new places to explore!! We also had a buck visit us on our last night! I highly recommend to anyone looking to excape the hustle and bustle of the daily grind! The picnic table and shade were a treat! This property is just stunning and we are hoping to be back!!!
