The vibe at Scenic Turtle Ridge

We are traveling cross country on motorcycles and were glad to see hard-packed gravel driveway on our approach. The campsites were WONDERFUL and we had a hard time choosing but we chose the one with a huge fire pit and next to the pond, and a short walk to the bathroom. Jen has the hall and bathroom well-stocked with amenities if you need anything - even fixings for s’mores. We spent hours by the fire and hung out hammocks by the picnic table. It was a lovely stay and the ride to and from their farm is gorgeous.
PS: my bike battery was low in the am and Tom gladly produced jumper cables to jump start my bike. So grateful because I would’ve been stuck for awhile!
This property is a great option for anyone wanting to really get out in nature and experience camping on a beautiful location with many scenic views and activities. The pond was absolutely beautiful as well as all of the woods and hiking trails. It was also very nice having a clean bathroom available for our use with its own private entrance, that was very convenient. There are so many fun activities that are available that you could stay for quite a few days and still not run out of things to do! We really enjoyed seeing all of the animals as well as having so many options to go out hiking and exploring. We also loved how quiet this location was and how it seemed so secluded from all the craziness of everyday life. It truly was a little sanctuary in the woods and we thoroughly enjoyed our time here! We would highly recommend it to anyone!
Scenic turtle 🐢 ridge was a piece of heaven under the sky. The sanctuary of the forest surrounded you with warmth and peace.
Jen was a graceful host with a kind heart and I totally recommend staying on her piece of paradise and feel the serenity of nature!
Since the camp wasn't full the night we were there, Jen allowed us to pick our site! It was secluded in the woods, but very close to the trail, which we occasionally heard people on. (A little strange to hear people on it while it was dark though.) It was also nice to have a regular bathroom and accessible water spigot. Jen has thought of everything from a heavy duty wagon to get our stuff to our campsite to water buckets for putting out our campfire.
