Streams flowing by.  Cannot see other houses other than the farmhouse.         I do beekeeping and a lot of hiking.  Enjoy motorcycling and boating.  There is a park and playground one-third of a mile east.  Mountain spring water.  Stocked trout in the stream on property.  Some sites available deeper in nature is you don't mind hiking in.  Sometimes I offer breakfast if my schedule allows.  Only 10 minutes from the state capital.

The site is beautiful, clean, and secluded. Can’t beat it.

Buddy and I had a great night at Dan’s place. It was much closer to the road and houses than I was hoping for, but it was very quiet, with no cars at night. You can hear the stream all night long and have a nice fire. Great spot if you’re looking for a cheap stop on a trip with plenty of room for a couple cars

Like the description states- there are sites further back that are available if you don’t mind walking. I can provide a wagon. The farmhouse is not very visible in the summer due to leaves. Can see more of it in the winter. No other houses visible. Regular campgrounds are much more crowded.

This was a solid spot, really dug the woodsy area that was perfect for hammocking. Dan was helpful and responsive but I felt like I had privacy. It was a great price, and perfect proximity to amazing hiking (lots of trails within 5-20 minute drive). I would recommend this to folks who like ease and quiet thats hard to find in campgrounds but still want to be near great nature.

Dan was a great host and has a very nice spot for a couple of tents! We really appreciated the use of the fire pit! Where we stayed was a little closer to the road and house than we were expecting, but there are more private spots farther back from the road if you're willing to walk in a bit. Overall, it was a great experience!

Marvelous host and lovely property. To reiterate a review that helped me set my expectations appropriately... the host perfectly balances privacy and involvement. The property house is within sight, the host's pups bark to say hello but cease quickly, and the street is within earshot, however there is limited traffic. Excellent fire pit and sounds of nature.

I just needed a spot to pull in, sleep in my van and hit the road the next day. Dan's location was perfect. He was nice: greeting me upon arrival, explaining the layout, and then let me be. The spot was nice: surrounded by trees, plenty of spots for tents, firepit, table, chairs, quiet neighborhood, etc. You are right next to the road and within plan view of Dan's house but the street was quiet and Dan was respectful. Would definitely stay there again.

Great place, almost a blind drive, but really great spot. A good place to park, for sure! A bit close to the main house, and there's a bit of poison ivy in the woods.
