Need a place to stop for the night but want to wake up to a beautiful homestead? Or need a weekend getaway from the city? We have the right place for you then. We live on a stunning 3.7 acre homestead in Illinois. We have a covered RV canopy with a 30amp RV hook-up (electrical not included but available for a small fee). Grill and bon fire pit on site. Enjoy the pond which is stocked with fish or just the tranquil scenery you’ll be surrounded by. Short, quiet trails through the woods. In the summer, enjoy fresh veggies and fruit from the gardens when available or homemade goods available for purchase from our general store. It’s the perfect spot to stay for a night or even longer. Note: There is no toilet available at this time. We do provide a list of 24 hour toilets just a short drive away. We hope to install an outdoor composting toilet in the late spring.

Megan was one of the most hospitable hosts I've had on hipcamp! Very accommodating and friendly, and the location is very nice! I can definitely recommend visiting to other people!

I get to show off my car, and you get a view of the campsite.  Win/win 😂

We wanted to escape the city for some peace and quiet and this property was perfect. Megan helped us find lovely place to hike and we also were able to walk around her beautiful snow covered property. We had a very restful stay!
