Thank you Aissa and Hank. The camping sites were private and the facilities great. We enjoyed time with friends by the fire pit each evening. Would definitely recommend. Two adults and two kids.

Really private site. Great to have two bathroom facilities and a decent shower. We felt super safe having the children run around and they loved meeting the chickens and playing with the games around the site. Aissa and Hank were helpful and friendly. Only ask would be smaller pieces of wood for the fire!
