Set your tent up in a wooded area or near a stream. Great star gazing and forest bathing. The area is in the Yelptown Hollow Valley, the road and one room school house Yelptown School are reminiscent of a bygone era. The old road bed is near camping and old school house has relocated to a site nearby. Come enjoy the laid back ombience of the area! Peaceful, solitude, nearby

Little did we know our stay would be covered with plenty of great amenities you desire to have while camping - a shower, grills, chairs, and even more...tents! While Mark has two tents that he always has set up (with air mattresses!) for his own version of 'Glamping', campers are encouraged to bring their own gear if they'd like. In the cool weather, bring plenty of blankets/sleeping bags!

The road into camp is not terrible but I would coordinate if there are more than.one car in your party. Flat is only at the very bottom or maybe the top, so if your camping in your vehicle/conversion van request a flat place to park. Peaceful land, friendly host, fair price, good shower at the cabin at the top of the hill.

Great camp site near beautiful farms. It’s also very close to restaurants and stores, but still remote for the perfect getaway. Mark’s wife is very kind and helped us with our accommodations and gave us extra batteries that we needed. They have a really awesome little shed, which we were able to use for hot showers. (I believe it’s also available for bookings). Definetly worth a visit if you’re in the area!

The sites were all very private and mine had quite a few extra amenities.... it rained during my stay so it was nice to have a platform for my tent. The host, Marc, couldn’t have been more pleasant and helpful.

We really enjoyed camping at Kickapoo. Overall, it was a wonderful place to spend a night camping with our young daughters. There are 3 campsites to choose from. Only one of them seemed satisfactory to us- it was the one down at the end of a long lane. It was the most private and secluded, had a gas grill, and a fire pit. Unforuntalty, the chairs and firepit were a bit old and worn down. We used our camp chairs instead. Mark provided a portable toilet and shower but since we had no directions on how to use them and they were placed right next to the firepit, we didnt use either of them. The site could have been set up nicer but overal it was a fantastic time and I am glad that we met Mark. He was so kind when he came and chatted with us. He provided toiliet paper and bottled water for us which was extremely helpful. He also offered to give us towels if we needed which was great.

I hate leaving bad reviews and this is my first. I always find the good, however the campsites were not as represented. It was difficult to drive down the muddy narrow path to see them. We counted three campsites. .or what looked like campsites. We drove slowly by them and they were very shaded and the only way we knew what they were was because of what appeared to be plastic and other items placed there. The path was grassy and in some parts narrow and muddy with huge ruts. The one at the end opened up and luckily we were able to turn around.
I contacted Mark and he messaged back "
"That's fine the pics are from across the bridge. Thanks for your interest. Mark"

I love camping..I love privacy. Nature should be the incentive to staying there. Nature was not in her glory at those campsites. They were depressing like a homeless encampment. No offense meant to any homeless people.

Laura’s first time experience wasn’t how she envisioned. We are always updating our Hipcamp. We provide a great experience for the price. Please come and enjoy. Thanks Mark and Deb

The host was beyond helpful and accommodating. The bathroom at the camping sight was a seat over a bucket in a tent right by the fire pit. The site was right by the road so it was noisy when cars went by. Beautiful area.
