Michelle and the crew is incredible. I highly recommend them.... you won’t be disappointed. The campsite was great, can’t beat being 30 feet from sugar sand and the peaceful St Mary’s River.
They really know how to take care of you!!!

We found this great campsite on the river for our spur of the moment camping trip this past weekend. Everyone we encountered from the host family was pleasant and welcoming. River is best for fishing or paddling a kayak/canoe. Our young son enjoyed playing in the soft sand. It is across the river from a 4wheeler course so message the host, they will let you know if there is an event during your stay. We had no issues and we will be coming back. Thank you to the hosts for opening up their beautiful property for campers.

Such wonderful hosts, got to drive right to the site and had plenty of excellent firewood waiting for us. Plus, the firestarters they gave use were so helpful. Right on the water, clean, comfortable, great fishing and really fun canoeing. Highly recommend.

Such a wonderful camp dog, Dozer.  Had a blast with him on the river.Was able to drive right to the site.

It was a blast camping here... The fish were bitting the kids went swimming... If I had to say one bad thing it would be there were a lot of these thorn vines that really ate up your ankles.

Took my family out over the 4th of July weekend and we had great time. The river was low but we found a nice fishing hole just a short walk from the campsite along the river and hooked up on some nice catfish. Campsite was clean and inviting. Host was very helpful and provided firewood as we needed. Looking forward to the next trip

What a beautiful property, owners are so nice and helpful. We had the best time, our dog is going to have doggo dreams about this place for months. Sandy beach is clean, soft sand, wood that was provided was dry and burned perfect.
Owners even offered additional camping supplies in case we forgot something.

Words cannot describe, we had an amazing weekend.
