Big Pine Peninsula is a great camping spot for anyone looking for a quiet, secluded and beautiful camp site. The area itself consits of a nice pond with campsites set up around its perimeter, some walking trails and a Mallard reserve. While you can hear the occasional car drive by on a nearby road and neighbors dogs bark in the distance, we still felt like we were totally isolated and by ourselves thanks to the forest that stood between us and the rest of the world.

We had a great time exploring the area and hanging out by the fire pit right beside the pond. Access to the row boat on the pond was a nice bonus and a rotating grill rack over the fire pit made cooking very easy.

This was my second time camping here and I will definietly be coming back. Alex was a great host and very accomadating and helpful with all of our questions. We noticed some improvements and new features to the campsite and are excited to see what will come next.

Okay so first off Alex was excellent with communications. He was quick to respond and very helpful. When we booked this we needed something close by that still felt remote enough to camp. When I pulled in to the site I was initially off put but the amount of junk laying around the property. Once we got past the front part of the property and went around the other side of the lake it felt more remote and natural. There is a chicken coop on the property with a rooster,..so guess what? You’ll be up when the rooster crows. This site has lots of potential. A little clean up and presentation would do wonders. He has installed high quality fire pits in the sites as well. I guess that’s about all. I’d consider going back. Just trying to be honest and balanced with my review.

Our stay at Big Pine Peninsula was great! We booked this campsite for the Fourth of July and our group had a great time. The drive into the campsite was a little confusing and the other car meeting us there wasn't able to find it. However, when we did find it, it was exactly like we imagined. It is very close to main roads and a neighborhood, so you feel safe, but it is also secluded enough to feel like you are really camping. The pond was beautiful and we were even able to catch some fish. We roasted hot dogs and marshmallows over the fire pit, as well. Alex texted me right after I booked the campsite to let me know not to hesitate with any questions. It was overall a very memorable experience!

I took my fiancé on a surprise camping trip here in the beginning of October and it was perfect. The weather was great, hardly any bugs (just the occasional fly trying to land on your food) and cool things to see and do on the property. I highly recommend taking the row boat out for a spin! There was a belted kingfisher that made an appearance in the late evening and early morning! We had a wonderful time and if we’re ever in the area, we will definitely plan to camp there again!

Alex was an awesome host and extremely accommodating! He answered our questions immediately and was very pleasant!

The site was excellent and communication with our host was stellar. The hike in from the parking spot was very easy so we packed in some extra water. The site was so quiet. I slept like a rock, just the cooing of an owl to lull us to sleep. There were plenty of cut paths to wander on and we also were able to find really great downed wood to process.
We had fun, we relaxed, and we were able to really feel isolated. We will definitely be back again!

Plenty of flat space to set campEnjoying the view of the pond by a campfire
