Sandra has self-certified that Hipcamp’s COVID-19 Safety Standards have been implemented at this listing. See what’s being done here.

A tiny magical grove of tall trees, fireflies and a creek full of frogs is a delightful place for a pup tent.  In the evening the fireflies float upwards to the sky. At night the flames from your campfire will be reflected in the creek.  You will have your own private composting toilet, in a privacy tent. Parking is immediately next to your tent.

We met Sandra when we arrived at the site. She was lovely and answered a few questions that we had. The directions to the site were good, but we had to drive a little further than we expected, keep an eye out for the signpost.
The site was beautiful and private even though there are other campsites a short walk away. The nearby walking trails were fun to explore.
Highly recommended

Frog Pond was a great site! It's like a back country site, quiet, rustic, and private, but you have your car and everything you need right there. We loved catching frogs and turtles at the pond, watching the water snakes hunt, and stargazing at night. Close to Saugatuck Dunes and lots of great daytime activities. We've already recommended this site to some friends!

The campsite was lovely and the pond was just as described. Sandra was flexible and very responsive. The only thing that would have made this better is if the campsite had a small table of some sort. We knew ahead of time that there wasn’t one though.

My stay at The Pond was nothing short of magical. From listening to the frogs at night to watching the turtles swim and the turkeys wander about, I really felt like I was in my own little world. However, the best part of this trip was Sandra. Not only was the site clearly well cared for, but her generosity and hospitality made me feel like I had come home. Thank you for everything Sandra and I hope to visit again someday!

Lovely and chill. The site has excellent trees and moss and wildlife, and Sandra was a helpful and responsive host. My partner and I had a very relaxing few days here, and would come again!

We had a great stay at this private camp. Saugatuck and Holland are only about 20 mins away for shopping and dining . The host had a 5 gallon water jug at the site which was great for washing hands and a few dishes . The set up for the porta potty was very clean . Never smelled ! Just throw dirt on top of your business and that’s it . She also provided 2 rolls of TP. I was thankful she had one and we didn’t have to bring our own potty to deal with . We used the shower in the meadow for a quick wash . And we walked the forest floor and got all the wood we needed to burn for the weekend. For reference it was just the two of us using a camp for 3 nights .
