Heart's Desire is like the "Choose Your Own Adventure" of the camping world. There are 800 acres and you can choose to camp in the woods, in a pasture, or along the stream. There are spots that you can drive to or hike to, and your hosts will also help you cart your gear in their UTV.

Once set up, you can get busy exploring farm, field, and woods. There are old logging roads to hike on, streams to cool of in, and baby goats to and cows to pet. We chose a pasture site with a killer view of the surrounding valley. We had total privacy, although the cows were there to keep us company. This is a fun place to pitch a tent.

It was exactly what we were looking for. We camped with our dog, he was off leash the entire time and had a creek to swim in- he loved it! The views were nice, and it was very private.

Great spot. We camped in a pasture up on the hill above the dairy farm. Very short hike from the car, and we had a wonderful view.
