Katie: I love to meet our guests and hear their stories and learn about their travels. I hope that you will return for a long stay and enjoy all the hiking trails and the fishing and just relax under our dark sky to see the stars.

Very nice, peaceful location. We were at site #4 and very much enjoyed the amount of space we had. We also had a concrete pad outside our door (not all did). Very nice staff, and we enjoyed our conversation with Nester. We normally book at state parks but due to the closures our plans were cancelled. We will have to stay here again as it was an easy drive and enjoyable. Thank you Buena Vista Farms!

Thank you for your review! We love those front spaces for early spring arrivials when it is muddy and wet and for long rigs, some are 90 feet long. We are leveling and widening spaces to make it easy to get set up for those who have a short stay and want an easy set up.

The host was great! My friends fish in the lake and caught several fish. The campground is clean in near the highway. The only downside is there was a little shade

Response from Teriann, the Host, on November 1st, 2020

Linda: Thank you for your review. We have planted trees and hopefully they will hit their growth spurt, being a new campground just 8 years ago. We have widened our spaces and leveled them all this fall and we are just waiting on the oak and hickory trees to jump up tall.

My family had a great stay this holiday weekend! Beautiful well kept campground with a great playground and games for the kids. We will be back! 😁💜

Jennifer: Thank you ! We hope that you come again and that the kids will become avid fishermen, with the encouragement of easy catches here. We are adding pickle ball in the spring and are always looking for additional activities to keep the kids entertained and show them how to care for and appreciate the gifts from nature.

The hosts were wonderful. Very helpful and friendly. The park is beautifully maintained. Nice bath house. Games and puzzles to borrow were a very nice touch. Some of the sites had no trees and unfortunately we had one of those. Most of the sites were well shaded. We reserved last minute on a holiday weekend and so we were glad to get any spot! Beautiful area. Adorable playground.

Thank you for your kind words Carmen. We are glad that your family had a good holiday and restful time at Buena Vista Farms. We are working on improvements, like expanding our camp store and widening RV spots. You are right about opening more of the bath rooms, and I did, but it was later in the weekend when I thought of it. I hope that you get to come again.

Had a brief good visit to Buena Vista Farms. The grounds are a series of rolling hill sides, especially like the sites on the back side near the trees and beautiful lake/pond with a deck over looking the water. Teriann was very kind and insistant in trying to assist us when we arrived in finding our site and getting settled in for the evening. Felt like the bathrooms had not been attended to in awhile, wish the bathrooms were cleaner. Greatly enjoyed our brief hot showers after a chilly morning!

Response from Teriann, the Host, on November 1st, 2020

Annie and Steven: Thank you for your kind words, I enjoyed meeting you and thank you for the tour of your cute camper! Incredible all that was efficiently packed inside. You caught us in transition of shutting down. Bathroom #1 had been locked and used only by a group of work/campers who were doing their own cleaning and using the bathroom like an extra room to their camper, they checked out that morning and left it unlocked. I am sorry that I was not on top of that. Shutting down the cabins and bath house for winter is always a bit crazy and I will say that the last week of October is not our best representation. I hope that you come again and find the whole campground immaculate.
