What a great experience! This was our first time on hipcamp.com and it was the perfect place for a weekend getaway. The owners were friendly, helpful and went over and above to make us feel like honored guests. They gave us several options for campsites and then prepped it with a fire pit, firewood, tiki torches and sprayed the area for bugs. The outhouse was clean and very easy to get to and the ourdoor shower was amazing!

All in all, I would give this place 5 stars. I hope to go back again. The pro/con is that only Verizon cell phones get a signal. T-Mobile and AT&T do not work until you go 5-10 minutes away. We enjoyed that, honestly.

Great spot for a hammock!Perfect spot for a hammock!The owners were amazing! They let us pick our campsite, setup a fire pit, tiki torches, sprayed for bugs, mowed the grass, gave us plenty of firewood and treated us like old friends. Great experience!

My friend and i and a wonderful time here. The host, Cassandra, was amazingly kind as was her husband. The site was well kept and very pretty, in fact she said he was just putting the finishing touches on our site to make sure it was perfect when we arrived. They had asked to make sure we had everything we needed, even offered up the fixings for S'mores if we didnt have it. Once we got parked Cassandra showed us around the property and ensured we knew where the bathroom, shower, and chickens were (she offered us to have fresh eggs for breakfast!!)
We were able to set up easily and get a fire going with provided firewood and settled in for the night. The night was wonderful, very peaceful. Despite the cars that passed every once in a while.
Cassandra was very kind the next morning offering up good activities to take up the day. When we left the following day she wished us a safe trip and didnt pressure us to leave right away. Over all a very good experience and would love to stay again.
The outdoor shower was amazing honestly one of my favorite things about the site!

The location and the setting were PERFECT! It was quiet and private and our spot was spacious, but also cozy, nestled in among the trees. Fire pit, chairs, large outdoor shower! Hookie even included towels and shampoos, etc. And her hens provided fresh eggs!

Beautiful camping site!Testing our home made tear-drop camper

What a great experience! This our first time using hip camp and we couldn’t have been luckier to have chosen this little hideaway. Our camping spot was wooded and secluded but had enough space for multiple stations around camp. Our hosts provided tiki torches, fire wood, chairs and even built us a fresh fire pit among arrival to perfect out little camp site. The hosts were super friendly and showed us around camp before letting us enjoy our perfect little camp site. In the morning we were offered to grab some eggs from the chicken coop on the property for some freshly laid eggs. They made for a great memory and a super yummy breakfast! :). Thank you so much Cassandra for making our first trip a memorable one.

Excellent hosts! Very friendly, keep a neat property, and have great style and attention to detail.
We stayed in a backwoods camping site in their property, it was very clean and clear. A lot of space to set up. Pine needles made for awesome tent base flooring and tinder. They set up a fire pit and even gave us a little snores kit! Space feels very woodsy and remote, the only thing is that there is a big road nearby, so if you're looking for real backwoods tent camping, keep in mind you will hear cars when they drive by.
Outdoor shower is fantastic as are the fresh eggs straight from the coop.
If you want more of a glamping experience, I really suggest your look at their campers, they are Adorable! Very cute and we'll thought out, recommended! Thanks for the awesome experience! Oh! And visit Juniper Springs while you're there!
