We had a lovely stay with Brian from the moment we got there until the moment we left. He has a large property with an outhouse and fire pit in the camping section as well as plug ins and overhead lights. We heard quite a bit of interesting history about the place. There are some mowed trails to walk on which give a lovely view of corn and soy bean fields. Brian was very good to us and was always easy to contact. My girlfriend had never seen a cow up close, so she asked Brian if we could and he came around with his car to drive us to them. Also, we were in need of some milk and he was more than happy to let us have a cup or two and lactose free at that!! (my girlfriend and I are lactose intolerant) so everything worked out very nicely. He does offer a wedding area and whatnot for people interested. Beautiful sunsets and a calm warm fire (supplied with wood) are exactly what we were looking for. Would definitely go back anytime we’re back around the area.

Brian was a great host. He met us at the site and brought us firewood for a campfire. I would stay here again.

Our host was excellent, very helpful. Even brought us some wood. Trails are beautifully kept and fun to explore - beautiful woods, mostly. Security light helped us feel safe, but as Brian lives close it seemed safe anyway. Water right there. Thanks, Brian!

Three of us with three horses enjoyed ourselves very much. Two of us had been there before but first time for one. He tried the outhouse and found it just fine (we have LQ horse trailers/campers so don't usually need to use it). Brian gave us good info about when and where best to ride given hunting season and some logging in the area. Thanks for everything, Brian.

Brian was very kind and helpful. The camping spot was wonderful, the sounds of birds unique to the area was nice to fall asleep and wake up to! Thanks, Brian!

Brian, and His Family are hosts above and beyond! Good Christian folks with an uncommon hospitality found today. My wife and I found a hidden gem in this place, and whilst I'd like to keep it hidden and give lower ratings, i can not out of respect for this great Family, and the gift they share with experiencing their land. Thanks Again Brian, and family
