Plenty of privacy on a super safe stretch of land with the sweetest family!

You have plenty of options on where to set up camp with different levels of privacy depending on what side of the pond you want to be on. I was closest to the road yet farthest from the family home - in the shadiest spot to escape the summer heat. A fire pit and bench was provided where I camped at. The family and I enjoyed smores before I took a few minutes to gather my things and take a quick (and much needed) hot shower.

When I got back to my campsite, I was still unloading my car and getting my dinner together to start cooking when I hear some rustling in the bushes right behind my car. It was 4 baby raccoons getting closer to the pond! So precious!

I woke up feeling refreshed in my cool and shade filled campsite to cook breakfast and start my journey for the day. The family cat was there to tell me goodbye and sneak in a few snuggles.

My kids and I had a great time camping this weekend for our first campout of the year. Our hosts were very nice and welcoming, and accommodating with their indoor facilities. The kids liked exploring the property and meeting the cats, and I loved that it was fenced in so I didn't have to worry about them! We camped near the fire pit, which was stoked by a breeze coming across the pond, which kept our campfire hot. Next time we visit, we're bringing our dog too! Thanks Karmen, and thanks Ron! See ya next time!

Cut little spot. Peaceful, beautiful sunrise. Not totally isolated but great for beginning campers.
