Time place was great! Perfect for our dog and 2 year old to run around. There’s both a clearing to run and play catch, and a more woody area to hike around. Tom also very kindly showed us the cows and goats he keeps at his place, a short walk or ATV ride away (he picked us up). The only downside is you can hear the street traffic, and trains, though they’re out of sight so it’s still pretty remote, and there are lots of birds and frogs for competing nature sounds. Also it was only 50 minutes from our house in Chicago!
It was just what we we're looking for. Some fresh air away from the city. The camp is in a little wood area in the middle of some fields. Definitely secluded and primitive. If it has rained or is going to rain, definitely take some waterproof boots. Just a little swampy entering and exiting the camp. Tom is happy to transport you and your gear to the site on his fourwheeler as well.
Tom was really helpful and very laid back. It was a beautiful little get away and exactly what I wanted. The camping area was perfect amount of space to walk around and enjoy the campfire. We also loved that Tom had a petting farm 10 minutes away and we pet the most friendly cute goats and sheep! Highly recommend !
This is a great campsite and Dan was friendly, helpful, and very responsive. We biked in from the Waukegan Metra station, pitched our two small tents, and had a great time exploring the area (on bikes and off) and sitting around the fire. The site itself is beautiful, only a few minutes from Wisconsin (and a case of New Glarus) and very close to the Lake Michigan Circle Tour route. I hope to come through again as part of a longer tour.
