We absolutely loved staying here! The owner was so hospitable; he met us and got us situated at the site and made recommendations about “adventures” we could enjoy on the trail and by the lake. The lake was a little lower because of the dry season, but this was perfect for us because we were able to pitch our tent on the nice, soft grass right beside the water and we didn’t have to deal with any nuisance plants or animals, and very few bugs. My husband and two sons caught tadpoles, fish, and crayfish in the lake, and our dog roamed freely and loved it. Quiet, private, and safe. Perfect family camping experience!

Robert (‘Yates’) was an exceptional host. He was more than accommodating for my guest in a wheelchair. He took time out of his Sunday to drive us to a more accessible launch for our kayak.

The site had an amazing sunset view! The pictures did not do the site justice. We felt very safe at the beautiful location. We hope to visite again soon:)

What a beautiful place to spend camping. Yates was there to meet me upon arrival. I parked at the first campsite which faced the fields and backed up to the woods. The farmhouse and barn were visible in the distance and the view was pastoral and lovely.

Yates helped me pack my gear into his truck to head to the second campsite. It had rained the day before so he wanted to make sure my van didn’t get stuck (so considerate!). This campsite faced the same fields and also backed to the woods, but was even more secluded. The path down to the river was here. There was a boardwalk through the marsh to a dock on the river. It will be exciting to camp again when it’s warmer and we can take advantage of the river access. In addition to plenty of firewood, he offered the use of an elevated fire ring and table to help mitigate the damp ground. Again, so considerate.

I ended up walking my gear down to the creek where I was welcomed to take my pick of spots to camp. It was beautiful and shielded from the wind. The ground was soft from the rain, but all the fallen leaves kept it from getting muddy. I heard a ton of birds, lots of geese, dogs, foxes and an owl. It was not quiet or peaceful, but I go to the woods for all the sounds of nature, small and big. I can use noise canceling headphones for peace and quiet. The next morning, there were massive flocks of swifts(?) over the corn fields. They would all go quiet at the exact same time, then there would be a huge “whoosh” as they took to the sky. I could actually feel the wind they generated. If you haven’t seen birds in a murmuration, look it up on youtube, it’s an amazing sight.

It was hard to say goodbye to this beautiful farmland (but I was hungry after dropping my entire breakfast all over the ground) and I plan to return when it gets warmer.

Robert was an amazing host. We camped by a pond on a beautiful, flat plot of land. There was a fire pit available and all the wood we wanted. Our six year old had a wonderful time catching toads and bugs, collecting animal bones, and just wandering around being a happy kid in nature. I couldn't recommend more.

Amazing place. Lots of space, very secluded. My 2 daughters had a great time playing with tadpoles in the pond. Also right on the river. Looks like there is access for canoes and kayaks although we didn't bring one. Host was great, very friendly and made sure we didn't hesitate to let him know if we needed anything. Will definitely be back.

This was by far one of my best camping trips. The campsite was awesome. The pond was beautiful. I couldn't have asked for more. Seriously, they should probably charge more for this experience. I'll be back soon.

We had a wonderful time at Yates’ camp site — it was well kept and had plenty of space for us to roam around. The directions and description were accurate and we felt very safe throughout. Really appreciated the fire wood left out for us! Would definitely recommend this spot.
