This place was amazing! My favorite hip camp to date! Michael was more than accommodating. My jeep had broken down about 15 minutes from his campground and he not only gave us a ride but helped us call a tow and offered his AAA card. He also had fresh breakfast sausage for us in the morning. The property was beautiful and there were so many plants and animals. We "camped" in a beautiful house that was squeaky clean with a hot tub and spa! We also had a tour of the property in Michaels truck (with lots of dogs). I highly recommend this place!

Driving down muddy, rural roads brought up thoughts of this year’s extra snow and rain totals. It’s nice to immerse yourself in the results to open viewpoints.

Michael met me and walked me over to the camp area - after letting his 3 dogs greet me. He has a large gravel lot with an electric hookup. He spent time leveling it off so set up was a breeze. Nobody was staying in the guest house so we were able to use a bathroom that reminds me of a fancy hotel.

Looking around you find yourself surrounded by farm life. An old barn houses a group of cats. Hay is in this one for their horses to add to their diet. The land goes forever and life slows down.

Michael walked over with his dogs and invited me to walk the property line. This ended up being a couple hours of education and conversation. Michael has worked with government programs to make portions of this retired farm natural grasslands. He planted rows of cedars, plums, chokecherry and pear to attract pheasants - deer appreciate it too. He showed me his endless battle with wormwood crowding out the native species. Water formed a lake where there never is one and almost flooded out their neighbor. Lazy Sy is elevated but they are still fighting the water off this year. My dog found companionship with the farm dogs and we felt welcome and right at home.

Besides walking around the farm, we stopped in town right on the Missouri River. There are a number of restaurants and stores as well as a few State Recreation Areas to explore.

Our stay was very comfortable and easy. Welcomed into another lifestyle, conversation bridged the gap quickly. You will love this simple slowdown of life.

Fresh veggies from their Garden showed up every morning. They were great. The Old Farm Equipment was fascinating as well. He had some very nice dogs and took us on morning walks

Michael was super helpful and respectful upon my arrival - showing me to a spot and bringing me a campfire ring and wood. I couldn’t have asked for an easier spot to stay for one night on my way through to Montana!

I felt safe at this site as a single female traveler with my pup!
