Good camping experience. The microbrewery onsite was really a lot of fun. Good food, beer, and atmosphere.

Loved the cold-water shower in this heat, loved the beer, the bathroom access and thoughtful portajohns. Location was perfect for the eclipse, and there's not a thing to be done about the weather. Also loved the quiet hours, I actually got a good night's sleep.

Would suggest getting a food truck or having some sort of dining option, since it's a brewpub.
Would also suggest bushogging/mowing a bit better. Lots of brambles, sticks, and critter holes/nests to stumble through in search of a good tent site.

The owners are very lovely people and worked hard to make all feel comfortable. Staying behind the taphouse was great!

Great spot. Taproom has a large selection of beer and the grounds are very accommodating with on-site toilets, firepit, and communal sitting areas. Very close to the lakes and everyone was very friendly, eager to help or just talk for a bit.

We had an awesome time and experience! The atmosphere of the bar is welcoming and the owner and staff are very friendly. We camped the night before the eclipse and were able to listen to great live music when waiting for totality to occur during the eclipse. Place is new, but I sure hope it does well as it certainly deserves to.

We camped out for the eclipse and had an amazing time! The owners and staff were amazingly hospitable, and we met some awesome local people and other out-of-towners. This was the first time they'd had campers and many of us encouraged them to keep doing it! So much fun :)

Had a great time! We came for the eclipse and it was so fun to meet other eclipsers and the brew pub folks. How handy to have access to fancy beer while camping out!
