Flowing Waters kept to its name with beautiful flowing creeks and streams. The hosts were some of the nicest people I ever met. The land was secluded and felt like we had our own space when we were camping.
We stayed at the hilltop Haven and it was a fun trip up the hill to the spot. They even gave us a smores kit for the kids. We loved his animals great for the kids and very comfortable feeling when we were there. The host went out of his way to show us around and give us a brief history of the land and it was insightful. I would definitely come back in the future.

Flowing Waters: A Man, a Plan, and a Backhoe.

Take acreage that includes a hillside perforated with natural springs, some heavy machinery, and Jon Shawl, and what do you get? Flowing Waters, which lives up to its name with babbling brooks, splashy miniature
waterfalls, and tranquil ponds. Jon has created much of the aquatic architecture by excavating ponds, burying culverts and pipes, and generally steering the downward progress of the water into pleasant forms.

Our campsite was large and flat, with room for both our cabin tent and 12'x12' dining canopy, and we were able to drive our vehicle right back to it.

As hosts, Jon and his wife couldn't have been more charming, and Jon's favorite thing in school was probably "show and tell". There is SO much to look at on the property, including chickens and goats and a submarine, oh my! Currently in dry dock beside one of the ponds, the yellow submarine that Jon built years ago was tested to a depth of over 100 feet. Antique machinery, boxes of rocks, materials for future projects, "things that
might be useful someday", and pretty much anything else you could imagine take up some of the space away from the campsites. Ever wonder what ostrich bones might look like? You can see them here.

If your idea of bliss is a condo next to a golf course, this place is not for you. If, however, you want to temporarily share the world of a free-range genius, then Flowing Waters is just that spot.
