Yes. Welcoming, friendly and a really pretty place. thanks for opening for the eclipse!!

Hipcamper Steven

We came down for the eclipse, when Amy and Philip were just beginning to experiment with the idea of hosting campers, and it was amazing. She had stockpiled plenty of food and beverages, and she'd thought the logistics out very well. The place itself has sites ranging from a backyard feel to deep-woods camping, while she and Philip are simply delightful hosts. We'll definitely stay there again if we get into the area.

Hipcamper Mark

Great hosts! Amy and her partner were wonderful to meet. Lovely land. Visited for the 2017 eclipse and it was an amazing place to view it. Blew away my expectations of the hosts.

Hipcamper Joshua

Great couple, very friendly and although I left early, was a lot of fun

Hipcamper Nadya

Amy's backyard exceeded my expectations -- it was a huge space with nice, varied areas for camping (woods, trees, lawn). Amy's a wonderful host, we could use the bathroom and shower in the house, she made us coffee in the morning. Highly recommended.

Hipcamper Ava

Amy was very well-organized, responded promptly to all our questions, and could not have been a better host! Her little campground was perfect.
