Upon arriving at the camp I was met by Lisa the owner, she walked me around on a tour of the property, she talked to me about how the land was official refuge land for the birds. There are alot of thorn bushes on the property around the wooded parts so Small children might not be the best choice here. There was a firepit and you are aloud to collect the wood around the property. There is a lot of different wildlife, foxes, raccoons, bob cats etc. also a really good bird watch tower towards the house.

Literally the perfect place to pitch a tent! I chose the most secluded area!I am so in love with the amount of colors in the brush, its such a beautiful wildlife refuge!The Bird watch tower, such a cool spot!The inside of the watch tower, which I believe is also rentable!

Smaller than i had expected, but i went in the winter so we didn't have as much to do either. She does have apple trees so fall camping is a great choice at this location.

The host Lisa met us and showed us around the area. We got a great spot with the fire ring out in the sun but the tent in the woods. The area is beautiful. There are some walking paths to look around. You hear birds at all hours of the day, from dawn to dusk. Their dog is friendly and very obedient. She will stay and hang out if you want and will leave the moment you tell her to. Overall, the pictures do it justice and are very accurate. It is the perfect campsite for a getaway. We will definitely try go get back.
