This site was quite nice!
Plenty of privacy and out of the beaten path.
Great for stargazing on a clear night.
Jim is very friendly and accommodating, allowing us to arrive pretty late and providing firewood and water for us at no extra cost.
Jim also runs a B&B in the property and loud yells and music could occasionally be heard through the woods but it is well out of sight and we still felt pretty secluded.
The B&B is a sweet dome-style house and I definitely recommend checking it out.
Some posts that look like the very start of a barn build provided an excellent place to string up our hammocks, though the site is large and flat and very suitable for any tents (which we also had with us).
Would definitely recommend you come check out Jim's place. You will not be disappointed!

Thanks for the review. Sorry for the loud noise. It is not usually like that. Some people were having a party, across the lake and across the road, not on the lake. It destroys the natural ambiance of the area. But it is rare. Sorry I didn't get to see you off!
