Joe's place was the perfect getaway. The field is tucked away so you feel far from humanity, and yet can drive an easy half hour to cute towns on the lakeshore. We spent a day in Saugatauk, a day at Van Buren State Park, and a day at the Warren dunes. All were a lovely kickoff to the summer. The field has a firepit and Joe provided us with plenty of dry wood. As long as you can live a night without a real toilet, you're in for a treat.
Private, clean, magical getaway!
We had an amazing time at the Bee Sanctuary! Joe is a really helpful, responsive and gracious host! The site is so private with lots of places to go for a hike and beautiful views! Being mid-June, we watched hundreds of fireflies light up the fields and trees for hours after dusk while sitting by the fire... It was totally magical! Highly recommend!
Joe was a great host. Place is as described. Very private, very peaceful. Trails were very calming to walk. Dog had a great time off leash the whole time. Lots and lots of fire wood provided. Joe does an amazing job of providing anything you as for. Very accommodating. I have nothing but great words about Joe and his place. Joe, we will be back soon for sure! Thank you for a phenomenal time. Exactly what we asked for and needed to recharge. Oh amazing light show at night both in the sky and on the ground. You will have to go and check it out to see what I mean. (Fire flies)
Joe was awesome and his place was even better. We arrived and drove about .5 miles into his beautiful "Bee Sanctuary" where there was a very secluded campsite for us to stay in. He provided us with a lot of firewood, space, opportunity to explore the acres and acres of land he had, and ensured that he was just a phone call away. We were put to the sleep by an abundance of fireflies and were not disturbed in the slightest by any noise (which is exactly what we needed)
We will definitely be stopping by again on our next trip to Grand Rapids, MI. Thank you, Joe!
Magical place, wonderful time!
The site is fantastic. Joe was very kind and directed us down a long and winding path to a campsite beyond pollination fields and grazing goats. We felt surrounded by nature and far away from the outside world. The site has a panoramic sky view and fireflies provide a ground level light show the compliments the stars and moon. This is a perfect experience if you’re into tent camping and looking for seclusion. Joe is very kind and hospitable. We are sure to return!
Private & peaceful
My husband and I camped here with our kids for a covid-safe getaway with access to Lake Michigan beaches. Van Buren State Park is about 15-20 minutes away. South Haven town beaches are not much farther. Joe was a great host, and the farm is beautiful. The site overlooks a field of wildflowers which attracts monarch butterflies, dragonflies, and other pollinators. Our time there coincided with a heat wave. There is no shade on site (which was disclosed in the description). We brought a tarp for shade which was essential. We also brought a folding table, equally indispensable. Joe allowed us access to his hose near his house, which was great. It was far enough away from the private site that we drove down the hill to fill up our handwater station and solar showers. It was a lot of labor with little kids, so it's hard to say if we would do it again. (The work involved had nothing to do with the site itself -- just par for the course when primitive camping with children). We felt safe, enjoyed the area, and enjoyed talking with Joe and staying on his farm.
