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.
