Super friendly host, showed us the lake which is a drive or ~15 min walk and to our area very promptly. Felt very safe and the sky at night was amazing, no light pollution or sounds of a city. Very private spot.
Very basic setup, at back of a farm field area. Had to walk a bit to the site from where you park. The terrain walking to a spot and picking an area to put the tent was a bit challenging due to uneven ground from a large tractor and very large, spiky brush cut down to about 6-8". which made it just a little harder to set up than expected. No distinct camping area, but we managed to find a flat spot near a fire pit under some trees. Lots of bugs due to the brushy grassy area nearby and a pretty small standing water pond near where we pitched camp. No potable water.
VW graveyard was pretty entangled so we had to try hard to see the cars, maneuvering between barbed wire fence and uncleared woods, but it was fun nonetheless to see them. Couldn't stand around long bc you're truly in thick brush to get to see them.
Overall we enjoyed it, we're seasoned campers and know campsites vary a lot, just not as established/kept up as a camping spot as expected. Good distance to Cloudland Canyon, about 20 min drive.
We held our fundraising picnic here for our wildlife rescue. We had a wonderful time! Everything was just beautiful and natural. And our hosts were very kind and generous. Thank you so much!
We really enjoyed our stay here, the field was beautiful and peaceful. The directions were difficult for us to follow because we didn't realize "the Fortex" is the little lake, but Bethany was quick to respond and lead us to our site.
Absolutely wonderful place and host
For starters... Bethany was AWESOME! She was not only incredibly sweet, but also answered every single phone call and question that I had. She also made me feel incredibly welcome.
Second... The pasture was beautiful. It was a huge open field, and my dogs absolutely loved to get to run around without their leash and chase the grasshoppers. At night the sky was incredible, and the area was extremely peaceful and serene.
Finally... I will be coming back here as much as I can. It was such a nice place to be able to disconnect from the city life and enjoy peace and quit outdoors. It was a steal for the price.
Again, I cannot emphasize enough how incredible Bethany was, and if anything you should camp here just to support her. I will be back soon!
Loved the secluded peaceful pasture
We had a fantastic stay at Bethany’s pasture! We stayed here while visiting nearby Rocktown to do some climbing. It was private and peaceful and felt very safe. The sunset was spectacular and the stars would have been amazing if the moon hadn’t been so bright. We camped in our van so we slept right outside the pasture gate. The exact spot was a little hard to find but Bethany was very responsive and helped us find the way. I’d love to stay again!
We needed a place to sleep for the night on short notice and this place was perfect. We had no trouble booking our stay or finding the place and had a nice secluded spot to rest our heads under a beautiful night sky. Our dogs loved running around the pasture in the morning.
Love this place!!
Loved this site! The field was huge and very very private! No one bothered us and we could easily come and go. The host was very very helpful when we first arrived, she came out and helped us get to our site personally. We will be coming back!
