Great spot!! Friendly and accommodating hosts and a really lovely camp site in a small clearing overlooking a creek. Nice fire pit. Hosts knew we were bikepacking and thought to put out chairs for us. Overall, a great place to camp!

This is by far the best camping spot I and my husband have come across and we camp regularly. The host was more than helpful, very friendly but did not ever make themselves a bother. I would recommend this to anyone who likes a private camping spot its beautiful, peaceful, and very quiet. Will definitely go back

This is a great place for a quick getaway for those living in more urban areas of Columbus. Elizabeth was very quick to respond to questions about their site as we were looking for a private, quiet, kid-friendly place to set up camp for an evening. The directions were easy to follow and once we were on the property, the trail and the surrounding woodlands were really nice. Access to the creek was a bit limited due to weed growth, but Chad is planning on making trails in the future. This was a great option for us traveling with young children, as the hosts allowed us to bring our 4WD vehicles up to the campsite, making it easier to set up and pack up camp. I would definitely recommend this site to others!

Absolute Serene perfection with amazing hosts. Chad was friendly and didnt bother us at all even though we enjoyed chatting when we first arrived and invited him to swing by. The campsite has an amazing view of the creek and felt safe and comfortable. We didnt get the chance to meet Elizabeth but absolutely plan on visiting again.
