We had a great stay! The location was beautiful and the hosts were very accommodating and helpful. The hosts were preparing to make some upgrades and not taking many new bookings, so we basically had the place to ourselves. We felt very fortunate to have found this little piece of paradise.

Sheila and her husband were wonderful. They were so welcoming. They were flexible in finding us the perfect spot, then they brought us wood to burn and made sure we were completely comfortable. We had a wonderful stay and would highly recommend this spot.

Fabulous weekend for camping. Weather was great, campsite was even better. Shelia and Cleve were great hosts and the riverside camping was unbelievably relaxing. Will absolutely be back. Perfect boondocking site.

Our overnight stay was beyond our expectations. The hosts were very kind and guided us to one of many different areas we could setup on their well-groomed land. When arriving, you can oversee the area all the way up to the river with cleared fields and some gravel areas to park, if desired. We choose to stay up on the hill overlooking the river with a nice firepit next to us. For the stay, we were the only ones out there. Our pups were able to stretch their legs a bit in some open fields chasing geese and having a blast. If it were a bit warmer, I am sure they would have enjoyed a dip in the river. We couldn't have asked for more and will be back in the future.

The open fields were enough to wear out our Aussie :)Up on the hill overlooking the riverGreat view on top of the hill... River on one side, open fields on other.There is a cleared path in front of canoe to easily drive down to lower area right on the river.
