Firstly, Dustin is one of the nicest people you’ll meet. Very kind and accommodating. AND he lent a hand when my car battery was dead.
This is a gem of a little spot! A great way to get away without having to drive too far. I had a blast doing some catch and release fishing throughout the day. Then enjoyed a fire in the evening. Potable water on site. No restroom. Make sure you go at a gas station before you arrive and you’ll have no problem! I’ll definitely be returning to this spot when I have the time.

Great place to stay and let a 4 year old run around like a maniac, while surrounded by beautiful scenery. Also the fishing in the pond was excellent, great big bluegill were fun to catch.

Just what I needed as a half-way point on trip from Ohio to Alabama. Quiet, well kept and easy in and out. Beautiful little pond, lots of fireflies and bright stars. Perfect.
