    I was very impressed by the Purple Squirrel forest experience. Our host, Nancy, gave great directions, and was extremely accommodating to our extenuating circumstances. She even presented us with a gift of dog treats for our pups and veggie snacks to top it all off. The beautiful forested site is very well kept and has all the amenities - grill, nice fire pit, ultra clean porta potty, electric lights and a hose. I fell asleep to the sound of frogs from the landscaped pond. Incredible to find this kind of sanctuary so close to civilization! Would definitely return and would recommend to friends.

    We stayed there 3 nights and its the best place I have ever camped 3 nights was not long enough. Nancy and her husband Bill are very nice and made us feel so welcome, I cannot thank them enough. I will be going back there again and again. I recommend any one that want's a beautiful place to camp and hospitality to go with it, to go there for sure.
