Pitch your tent in the grove of Red pines or out in the wide open pasture. By day you will have a beautiful view of nature and all the farm animals, and by night you will have a spectacular view of the Milky Way. Don't worry, if you're from the big city we have our own set of night lights that will help you forget you left the city. During the summer season fire flies light up the entire landscape giving it the appearance of a remote city in the country. Enjoy the fresh smell of country air filled with the sweetness of flowers, crispness of night air and earthiness of all the wilderness around you.

When making reservations please include in your total any person over the age of two.

This is a magical place. Patty and Michelle are some of the warmest, kindest souls you've ever met, and that spirit extends through the entire landscape. Their care for the landscape, buildings, and animals is genuine and strongly felt. They are very respectful of guests' privacy while being immediately and cheerfully available when engaged. We left feeling we had just visited our favorite cousins.

I can't say enough about how great Life is Good was for us! It really exceeded all my expectations and I'm so glad I got to experience the great hospitality and beautiful scenery. Patty and Michelle were amazing hosts and welcomed me in right away. They obviously care so much about their land and their animals. My daughter was able to get to know the sheep, goats, horses, dogs, cows, and more. We had access to delicious ice cold well water, trail to the pond to watch the fish swim, the cave, farm animals, large fire pit, and more. Waking up the birds singing and going to sleep with the frogs chatting was amazing. The bluffs, hills, and valleys gave a beautiful backdrop to our campsite. I would highly recommend this site!

We had such an amazing time at Life is Good! Our three kids loved being so close to the animals, and our hosts were gracious enough to let them help with barn chores! The site is HUGE - perfect for families with children who like to run. Clean outdoor toilet, fresh well water super close, stocked up with firewood - what more could you want? The cave was certainly a magical, super cool addition - and we found lots of hiking, swimming and other activities close by. Highly recommended!

We are so glad we found this destination on Hipcamp. The house, farm, and camping sites are in a stunning hilly setting with the most adorable collection of animals and pets. We had a wonderful time and the hosts, Patty & Michelle were super kind and accommodating. They even gave us a tour! Do not miss an opportunity to stay here.

We had a beautiful weekend. Our campsite was clean and freshly mowed. There was plenty of dry firewood. The views are second to none. The owners knowledge of the history of their property and surrounding area is awesome.

My wife and I are just getting back into camping after having four children. Shady Rest Acres offered a safe and enjoyable camping experience.

Thanks Patty & Michelle
