The lot feels very much like back country camping but with the convenience of having your car parked just a few feet away. However, there is enough coverage to forget that you are in a lake neighborhood. The area was big and had plenty of wood available to use as firewood. James also supplied some tools to help with the camping experience as well.
The private lake is about 1000 ft from the campsite and we basically had it to ourselves on a beautiful Saturday afternoon.
James was very responsive and quickly answered any questions we had.

Empty beach on a beautiful Saturday summer afternoon. The water was refreshing on a hot day!Plenty of space to explore, collect firewood, and hammock!

James was a great host, very communicative and he has lots of plans to make this land into multiple campsites, I'm excited to see his finished product. The lot has 2 parking spaces, but they aren't side by side, so some coordinating is needed if you have two cars. However there are 3 more parking spaces over on lot 49 which is helpful. When we arrived another group of campers had already set up at the main site which included the firepit, fire extinguisher, trash can, and shovel/rake. James told us they would be there, so it didn't come as a surprise. The main site looked nice and there was plenty of room to make ourselves another camp somewhere else on the lot, we'd just have to find rocks to make a firepit. However, we had to walk directly through the other campers site to get to our potential site and we did not feel comfortable doing that, especially because we came with a lot of stuff, so it would have been multiple awkward trips. We did not end up camping here, but we did take advantage of the lake which was amazing. We parked right at the beach, otherwise it was like a 5min walk from the campsite. There's at least 4 parking spots at the beach- you drive past it as you get to the campsite. This neighborhood and lake belong to a private association, and we did get asked by one random guy who said he lived at the end of the road, where we were staying- just replied with guests of Lot 47. He said he didn't like non-residents coming to use the lake, so that was a bit off-putting, but thankfully he didn't stay long and we kept swimming. I would recommend this campsite if you book both of the camp listings, so there's no awkward situations; it would be really great for large groups!

It was very hard to find the site. Location was wonderful was quile nice right next to a beach.

We camped in a camper trailer and it was qute challenging to park it. Our trailer is quite small and we had difficulties and never could even approximate a flat parking job. This would have been perfect if we were in a tent.

This campsite is perfect if you're looking for a beach to swim and hangout at. The site itself is pretty small so I would say just a 2 person tent would fit, maybe another tent a little further down the way of the property but it's an empty lot in a lakefront community within walking distance to the public beach access. It is important to note that if you are looking for that "out there" or "middle of nowhere" camping experience I wouldn't not recommend this spot, but if you are looking for a private site under the pines within walking distance to a swimming beach then I would say go for it. Also just wanted to note that James told us he was working on future plans to build the land out so we are excited to come back next season and see what he's done with the place.
