Easton Castle was the highlight of our three week road trip and we can’t wait to come back. Margaret and Thomas were amazing hosts and have created something really cool. The entire property is tucked away so snugly that we almost couldn’t believe it was there at all! When we arrived, my girlfriend and I made it no more than 100 feet before we were greeted by a family of deer who seemed just as curious with us as we were with them. The entire property is pocketed with wide meadows, enchanted forests, lush prairies and abundant wildlife. All the while less than a few minutes away from local businesses, restaurants or anything else you might need. Easton Castle is also adjacent to a spur line and the sounds of train cars interlinking provided a lovely soundtrack to our stay. Our campsite, which was situated just north of the barn, was beautiful and fit our exact needs for our 12 foot A-Frame popup camper. The barn itself is a whole other experience. For quite some time they have been remodeling it into a community concert hall and a woodworking shop for those without access to tools or the mentorship of woodworking. Thomas also explained his passion for drum making and showed us a wide variety of drums and drum skins from as far away as Egypt. Our favorite was his handmade wooden drum he fashioned himself with plywood and chain. The following morning we were given a tour of Easton Castle which was the inspiration for L. Frank Baum’s emerald city in his famous novel, The Wizard of Oz, and an absolute must do for anyone else passing through. We absolutely LOVED our stay and we promise to return!

We love to have others enjoy the refreshing magic of Easton Castle/O-TE-LA Castle Campground Forest. An American historical and environmental treasure steeped in history and hopefully preserved for everyone forever. It was so satisfying to have you.
