It was a beautiful and relaxing drive out to Deer Spring in Magnolia. Just southeast of Canton, Ohio is this beautiful farm of 40 acres. The host, Kevin, had his head under the hood of his jeep working when we arrived and he had a big smile for us. He’s a gentle man along with his two dogs and handful of hens.
His property is down a long gravel driveway. Just keep driving until you get to the two houses and his big work shed. There are many places to camp here and he will let you camp just about anywhere you like. Our van had too low of clearance to drive up and out over the knoll so we made camp near his house. But if you are tent camping, Kevin will take you on a joy ride on his tractor and deliver you and all your stuff where the view is incredible. He took us on a tractor ride all over his property telling us stories reaching as far back as when he was 12 years old helping his grandmother cut black walnut trees! He also carves large logs with his chainsaw into all sorts of things: people, animals, large chairs. If you are interested, he will give you a demo!
We highly recommend spending a night here if you are in the area. The property is gorgeous and Kevin is a gem! His property is also not far from the Westbrook Trail Head, if you want to explore the area even more.

I took my two nephews on their first camping trip to Deer Spring this weekend and we all had an absolutely wonderful time. This farm is just beautiful and expansive in all directions. I lost count how many times I've been camping in all over Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Kentucky, and this place was among the best places I've ever camped at.

Our host Kevin was very friendly and helpful. He brought us a bunch of firewood and a portable toilet. He gave us a nice history of the 40-acre farm and we got to see the creative chainsaw carving he created from wood.

During our trip we saw deer, chickens, geese, colorful butterflies everywhere, big hawks flying around the sky, frogs and big tadpoles in the ponds, and a family of twelve ducks that walked through our campsite both nights at exactly 9:30pm.

I honestly couldn't recommend Deer Springs highly enough. I live in Cleveland and sometimes forget there are such wonderful places like this in Ohio. To me, this farm was like paradise, and it looked like something out of a movie. Kevin's hospitality and the scenery made for a very memorable trip, and I'm sure my nephews will also remember this campout for the rest of their lives.
