The vibe at Flying "L" Vineyard
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
This site was private and set up behind the large, gorgeous vineyard and hugged right up against a beautiful quiet view of the small lake behind the property. We loved wandering the property and checking out the growing grapes on the vines! Our host left us to our privacy, but greeted us warmly and showed us around the property. We felt totally accommodated with freshly mowed camp area and serenity surroundings.
The host was prompt and responsive to our campsite questions. We boondocked for two nights in our 18' travel trailer and enjoyed the peace and quiet. As a bonus one morning, we were surprised to find Sandhill Cranes, Bluejays, Northern Cardinals, Kingbirds, Northern Flickers, Robins and two wild turkeys with two flocks of 23 chicks just outside our stargazing window! While there we checked out the tent sites by the vineyard, level with a fire ring, looked nice. When we return to the area, we look forward to camping here again!
Steve was an attentive and a very nice host. He made sure I had what I needed and checked in with me a good amount. He mowed when I arrived even though it didn't really need it, but I was happy to have had him do it. He was easy to get in touch with and the property was simple and cozy. He made sure to bring me firewood and let me know where and when I could go around the property. For example there was a great shady tree near the main house that I was allowed to use while they were gone for the day. The sounds of the frogs crickets and cranes were very nice.
Helpful hints for the next campers: There isn't much shade so the hot sun is definitely felt on walks and at the site - a parasol would have been great, there are a few ponds and a swamp that the site is close to, especially if it rains be prepared with long loose clothes or bug spray. I could also hear traffic at night - so some ear plugs would be helpful. I think mid September or spring would be the best time to enjoy the vineyard as it would be much cooler and the bugs would probably be less as well - oh and bring your own tp! Overall, I am grateful to have gotten to stay here! Thanks Steve.
