Mary and Rick were wonderful hosts!! My husband and I had an amazing experience camping and are definitely going back to this campsite again. There was plenty of space, and we were able to choose where to set up. The goats and horses were adorable and friendly. Mary and Rick also provided firewood and were extremely accommodating. I am so thankful we stayed here!

Mary and Rick were great hosts! The site was lovely, and we had an amazing experience. The fire was started when we arrived, we could easily drive up to our site, and there were a million stars. 10/10! we will be back on our next cross country trip.

These two kind souls met us in the driveway with fresh baked cookies and let us pick the spot that was right for us. It was clean, private, with all the sounds of nature, just like camping should be. The site was complete with chairs, a fire pit, And they even provided firewood. We would highly recommend this listing as it is peaceful and private!

Mary and Rick were excellent hosts! When we arrived, Rick greeted us with a big smile and a bag of homemade chocolate chip cookies!! We were led to our campsite and welcomed to call if we needed anything. Marick Acres was beautiful and so well-maintained. There were friendly ducks, cats and chickens happily roaming around and so many fireflies! Thank you, Mary and Rick, and take care!!

Wow... what a gem of a property.
Mary and Rick’s welcome was very warm and made us feel right at home.
We had been traveling for many hours and booked Marick Acres as a stop off, but we wished we had allowed more time to spend a few nights as it was such a great place.
Thank you Mary and Rick. We had a wonderful time!

Marick Acres is a wonderful place to hip camp! The hosts are extremely kind, welcoming, and accommodating . Their land is spacious and open, so they let me choose wherever I wanted to camp and there were plenty of great options. The property is beautiful and I enjoyed looking at their goats, horses, and ducks.

If your looking for a Beautiful quiet place with two Beautiful souls, youve come to the right place! We found this place lookin to camp close to Indy, we got here very late but were welcomed by two kind hosts who were awesome enough to start a campfire for us. We pitched camp and were just fascinated by how beautiful the night sky was, the stars surely shine like diamonds, open country air and surrounded by a quaint town. There is also a cemetery nestled on the side of their property.I was so pleased to get Peace and quiet and meet some amazing farm animals. The mama Horse and foul were very friendly and were accompanied a trio of goats whom i called the three stooges were very entertaining to watch. Im blessed to have met Mary and Rich and stay at their beautiful home on a little piece of heaven that is so inviting. I highly recommended will most definitely be returning not only to camp but to see two peoole whom i consider friends
