Thank you so much chantel for having us on your magical land. We had a blast going down and to the site in the ATV and back up to our car— next time we will pack lighter :) The bagels and coffee in the morning were an excellent surprise. We had a lovely time visiting the river and seeing all that you plan to do with the space. We would love to come visit again!!!

It was our honor! We had such an amazing time with Oscar and Annie!! You were our first hip campers, and what a breath of fresh air the two of you were. Thank you so much for being so clean, caring, and interested in our mission. I loved how we had so much in common, I truly enjoyed my time with you both. <3 A pleasant surprise! Know that we would be more than happy to open our space up again, to you and your tribe any time! Many blessings to you and HAPPY HOLIDAYS! See you soon, Chantel

We enjoyed our stay at Chantal’s property. Our campsite was right next to a beautiful babbling river. While the site suited our needs well, it was not quite as private as we anticipated. The owners are still working on the property and staying there overnight. I’m sure it’s going to be amazing upon completion.

It was great having the both of you! While we appreciate your feedback, I also want to say that at this time we will always be on the land when hosting hip campers. At the same time we also will do our best to ask our guest, like we did with Emily and John about the level of privacy you are seeking in order to ensure that we do not go in to your space or cross paths if possible. So to the public reading this, you have our promise (as we gave Emily) the opportunity of picking how close you'd like us to be away from your site. We will offer the same so that everyone is getting what they need. We are here to ensure that each of you great people are receiving a positive experience. Blessings to all! Chantel

Taino Woods is a great little oasis in the forest! Sites are secluded along a little creek in the woods with firepits and a nearby bathroom. Plenty of sunlight coming through the trees and no noise at night except for the water. Chantel and her husband are great hosts...super accommodating and friendly. They'll help you bring your gear to the site and answer your texts for whatever you need. This was my first time using HipCamp and had a great experience...definitely going to be making a return this summer!

This place is magical! Chantel and Jesse where's super friendly and welcoming and try to help in accommodate us as much as possible.
Fortunately for us we got to stay in two out of the three site camps, both sides were lovely.
A few words of advice two people who'd like to stay here, two out of three sides will only fit one big tent maybe a small tank next to it but not more than that.
Another thing that you should know is that this is nature in the rough, wild full of life, untouched so if you are looking for a place to connect to nature this is the spot for you!

Thank you! It was great having you!. About the sites, if your tents are large and really tall it’s possible to only fit one. But if they are standard size multiple. All of this is workable we can easily stretch out a site or two, if need. Also the site you stayed in by the river can have up to 3 tents. There is a stage area that can be used for that. We are new to this, and are extremely open to suggestions again thank you for the feedback. Chantel ✨

Michael says-
I am grateful for the experience being in Taino Woods Sanctuary camping out was wonderful and the sound of the river, birds, and the wind through the trees was amazing. Special thanks to the hosts for their hospitality and being available when needed. I recommend this place of peace and tranquility to anyone who enjoys the outdoor experience, being one with the earth. Thanks again we had a great time. Blessings...

Nathan says-
I enjoyed my stay. The couple hosts was very pleasant and welcoming. I'm planning my second visit. It's a perfect sanctuary.

Nicky says-
Taino Wood Santuary is a place you really want to experience! Whether you are a camper or not, you will become one. It was my first time sleeping in a tent, so my first official time camping. You have access to a beautiful river and are able to actually be in it. The portable toilets were clean. I even took a hot outdoors shower with river water. The birds sing day&night. The view of the stars, incredible! I can’t say enough good things about the amazing time I had. Our hosts, Jesse&Chantel were great also, super helpful and hospitable.. I intent on making this a regular activity throughout the year! So humbled by my experience!!! Thank you🙏💜

Last weekend , We were here with our friends for a night stay .

Location : I would rate as "Its very hard to be missed." in my experience so far.

Communication : Chantel was easily accessible throughout the stay. She stayed nearby in the campground, So she knew exactly what we had to go through in terms of weather and was ready to help.

Camp Site : It was 50% rain on our check-in day. In one way it favored us because we were able to choose our site as there were few cancellations. In other way, we have to stay on a wet camp site , which has its disadvantages . Knowing this , Chantel helped us by providing big table to keep our food/baggage stuff which was very helpful.

Also some campsites are little far, where we have to walk a little from the car parking area. But they have an ATV to carry and drop our camping gears which is an extra charge.

Another thing which i noticed is that, the sites floor are uneven with rocks. But not a big concern for us since we had a sleeping pad and sleeping bag on top of that. So we had a comfortable sleep.

Chantel is still working on the campground and how she can improve the experience which is good. We noticed few snails in campsite which didn't bother us in anyway.

River *** : It was a short hike to river from our site. Next Morning, we took a walk to River Side and its really magical and its aroma is so refreshing . We spent an hour there by just sitting and listening the music of river. I would recommend you to check out for Taino river side campsites , if its available for the date you are looking for.

Overall Experience was Awesome & would definitely recommend this place. We spent quality time with friends & nature :) :)

Grill On ..  Camp set :) Breakfast  Time Walk through  woods from parking

Ahh thank you Govind! We loved having you and family stay with us. It was so nice to get to know each other, and to learn some of our ceremonies being very similar. We would love to see you back anytime! Thank you for taking the time to review us 🥰. Chantel

We had a great weekend at Taino Woods Sanctuary! My boyfriend and I booked two nights to celebrate my birthday over July 4th weekend. The campsite was large, in a wooded area, and nicely situated just off a main path. Chantel and Jesse are lovely hosts with great energy and you can tell they really care about the land and their guests. I highly recommend and we will definitely book again!
