Fly fishing and camping
We tent camped on the bad axe river. It was secluded had wood ready for us as well as water and a tent/potty. I fly fished for trout and caught a few nice browns. Was a nice time would recomend.
Fun family weekend
Always a joy camping here! It’s lovely being right next to the river, being able to jump in during the day and listen to the flowing water at night. Full nature experience- you are immersed in wildlife sounds, beautiful views, and lots of space! Lynn & Cory are always very sweet & you have a lot of privacy / seclusion as well. We’ll be back!
Seclusion & privacy
SECLUSION & PRIVACY
Legit out absolutely favorite Hipcamp experience so far.
Lynn and Cory are incredible hosts that go above and beyond for you.
Their property is true serene beauty, nature everywhere.
Our furbabies are dead tired from a fun long weekend and we will BE BACK SOON because this was 150% experience for us.
Thank you so much for a PERFECT Anniversary weekend.
P.S. Definitely have them haul your items to site. Worth every penny.
Simply Amazing! The river was magical and it allowed for the kids to explore, fish, and swim. I loved that I could put my camping chair in water to soak my feet and read while the dog played in water. Lynn was fantastic in many ways and brought us down by ATV (I definitely recommend if you have a lot of stuff!). Bugs we not bad and the view was brilliant!!!
Perfect secluded campsite
It was the perfect secluded campsite you wish to find when out there backpacking, but even better because there were chairs, tables, drinking water and already cut wood for the fire. My husband caught about a dozen or more brook trout. The nights were so relaxing listening to the water. We would recommend getting the ride to the site if you have a lot of equipment. We were struggling pretty hard with everything we had and our short legged dog wasn’t happy. We calculated the trek on the way back out and it is .81 miles with a 205 ft ascend. The distance isn’t bad but it is quite the climb. We will definitely be back!
Secluded trout anglers haven
Amazing property and campsite! Very secluded along an amazing trout stream full of brown trout. They have the property setup very well and i have zero complaints/critiques. Would recommend the UTV ride to the bottoms even for one night. Will be back soon !!
Complete privacy - off the grid!
We’re so glad we decided to go back to Cory & Lynn’s land for a second trip! This time we stayed at site #1……loved it! Very secluded, quiet & tranquil. We’ll definitely be back again - I’m sure! Make sure to view the pics I’ve posted!
Great secluded spot
We loved everything about it. Lynn was so nice and very accommodating.
It's very secluded and private, and it's well supplied with various items you'll need: water, camp toilet, fire pit, chairs, grill, picnic table, and even bug (gnat) spray.
Our favorite part was probably the creek, which was super clear and had plenty of brook trout. I caught 12 or 13 over two days on nightcrawlers (all catch and release), but if I was a fly fisherman I would've probably caught 30 because they were jumping all over.
Strangely enough, I don't remember seeing a mosquito (they usually love me), and we never had any ticks. That could have been the time of the year (?), though they are plenty of mosquitos at our house right now.
There's an Amish-built swing set down the creek a bit, and even a "swimming hole" at the end of the property.
The UTV ride is something you'll want to get if you've got a good amount of gear.
It's a great spot to just get away, hang out with just the family, and enjoy nature.
Thanks for everything, Lynn! We'll be back!
