Do you remember seeing the night sky full of stars and so close it felt as if you could reach up and touch them? Ever catch a glimpse of an owl silently hunting in the trees or try to identify different bird songs? 

In our busy lives, often surrounded by noisy traffic or lights everywhere blocking out the night sky, we often miss that sense of being part of nature that is all around us. Being here, immersed in nature, you'll likely feel your body slough off the tension that all the hustle and bustle have built up in you and re-connect yourself with the natural world and you will come alive again and be refreshed in ways you might never have imagined. 

Our quiet campsites are a 3 to 5 minute walk from the main house and you will have  privacy surrounded by evergreens.

A community fire ring and  picnic table are included. A screened patio tent, a cookstove, and a solar shower bag for quick cleanup may be available to rent.

We had a wonderful time here! The site was well maintained, scenic, and private with touches of whimsy throughout. We typically camp in more secluded, primitive sites, so we were pleasantly surprised by the ease and hospitality provided here. Bob and Roxanne were gracious, communicative hosts who thought of everything—fresh water, firewood, warm coals when we arrived, a map of the property, and the nicest outhouse I've ever been in.

We absolutely would recommend this site, especially to campers looking for a spacious campground for family/friends. There's plenty of space for multiple tents and on-site trails offer room to safely roam for young children. Though we camped, they also have a yurt which looked quite cozy. I would especially recommend this site to those looking to introduce non-campers into the outdoors—it's an easy getaway maintained by lovely people.
