It felt like my own camp ground, nice and secluded. They gave me fresh cut wood and a starter block to make it easy. It was a short walk from the car down to the site.
In the morning they gave me fresh brewed coffee and an amazing breakfast. My time was cut short due to an impending storm otherwise I would have hung out longer.

A private area with nice amenities and tons of adventure to be had! This site is in a great location for the outdoor enthusiast. Kayaking, boating, fishing, disc golf, you name it!

The campsite was already prepared with a fire pit and fresh cut wood to burn, a grill and extra tent padding if needed, and straps in the trees to hand your bathing suit (or maybe even the fish you caught).

My tent was backed up a wildlife reserve so I was able to see a few critters and creatures here and there. A few deer were definitely curious to watch as I set up camp and started cooking a little meal to get me through the night.

We had a great time visiting this campsite! Our dog enjoyed the room to run free, and so did our kids. Jenny and Vinny were great hosts, and checked in with us to make she we had everything we needed. They also set up hammocks for us, gave us fresh picked corn, and some other items for our kids and a ball for our dog to play with. When there was a storm approaching Jenny texted me a heads-up which was very helpful, and offered us shelter if needed.

We hiked in the nearby area, and tried a restaurant in the closest town. We really enjoyed our time. Even though we were on their property, we still felt like we had our privacy. Would definitely recommend.

It is everything and more, if you want to connect with nature and have the best host you could ever imagine. Fishing was very good my Son was the one that caught the big one.
We did our own cooking over the open wood fire they supplied a grill cover for the fire. Please if you truly like fishing and every thing that God can provide you you will find Vinai's your new escape.

This is beautiful little spot! Our hosts were extremely hospitable. They were always available to help us out and take us kayaking, which they provided. The lake is only a hop skip and a jump from the lake and getting on the water couldn’t have been easier thanks to them and the location. They have a nice campsite available away from the house with a fire pit stocked with wood. They had everything we needed and more. Highly recommend!
