Cara's campsite was really lovely. Lots of frogs, birds, bunnies & squirrel friends. It was really fun to get out of the city for some fresh air and starry nights. The site was clean and more private than your typical campsite.

This was the perfect campsite! Cara and Garrett were incredibly kind, generous, and hospitable. The site was clean, secluded, had soft ground, a great firepit, and nice touches (such as a lighted outhouse and large water jug). It's also nearby to lots of great hikes, and town is a short drive away if you need to stock up on supplies. I'd recommend this site to anyone looking to camp in this area!

My sister and I had a wonderful experience at the Pond Site. Cara was incredibly friendly and made our stay seamless. The site itself is idyllic next to the pond and was very well maintained. Would definitely visit again!

We had an amazing time at Outer Space! We arrived in the middle of a heavy rain. Our hosts were so, so welcoming and went far above and beyond to make sure that we were all situated when we arrived in that rainstorm. I mean, they REALLY went out of their way to help us amidst our arrival.

The site is lovely - very well kept, clean, pristine, and beautiful. It is private but close access to the host's house if you need anything, they are just a short walk or a text message away.

I can not say enough good things about our stay and will definitely be coming back.

Awesome, friendly hosts and a nice location. The only challenge was that there wasn't really a flat place to put a tent.

Pond Side was so beautiful. The sight took my breath away over and over again. It was so peaceful to sit beside the pond or explore it with the rented canoe. The site itself is small but well put together and easy to get to and from. We appreciated the outhouse and the picnic table. Cara was very thoughtful and went out of her way to make sure we were comfortable. We were also pleased to find that the pond wasn’t buggy at all, maybe because the water keeps moving. Make sure you pack extra layers for the cold nights! It’s a really special spot and I hope we can return someday soon.

The site is picturesque being right beside a pool. With our 19 foot long van, it was a bit tight and tough to find a level area (we ended up using our levelers). The picnic table, fire pit and privy were clean and having lots of water was a plus. It is just down from their home so not as private as their other spot, Knotty Pines. Cara and her husband were gracious hosts.
