Perfect campsite with outdoor kitchen amenities, picnic tables, a great firepit and clean solar outhouses. The farmland had some great trails and fields to hike and play in. Very friendly, great people too. Can’t wait to come back to one of several campsites.
Host was very helpful and accommodating. Area is very nice, great size fire pit and really new picnic tables. The two toilets were nicer than many we’ve experienced in the past. Due to the surrounding trees and depending on where you are, the breeze can be diminished quite a bit. Not much anyone can do about that, just something to keep in mind for setting up camp. There are a number of sites on the property so double check your instructions from the host and follow those as opposed to any generic “HipCamp” signs you might see. This is a nice setup for a group of 8-20.
Peacecamp is a fun and spacious site for a large group! Darryl was a felxible and helpful host. I was unsure of the amount of people coming camping so darryl allowed me to purchase only 8 spots and then add people additoonally after our stay. He was very responsive and provided fire wood when we asked. The site was also amazing because it is very spacious and includes 2 private outhouses. Our group was able to fit 4 tents as well as have plenty of room to set up all of our lawn games. The site is near the host's residence, but was not a problem at all and was even helpful because we were able to park very close to unload all of the equipent. Overall, awesome place and will come again due to it's very easy trip from Milwaukee!
Peace Camp is a great spot and has everything you need. Darryl and his crew were friendly and helped us out with anything we needed, like a nice cast iron for camp fire cooking and firewood.
Beautiful piece of land close to trails and lakes!
