There are several acres of pasture surrounded by pines and hardwood trees. Martin Dies, Jr. State Park is less than 24 miles north and there are several trails in the area for hiking in the Big Thicket. Fishing is available at the State Park

There are approximately 1/4 mile of trails around the property and along the creek that runs along the southern border. You can also wander further down the dirt road. Precautions will be necessary during September through December when wandering off the road as the property is surrounded by a hunt club.

This year in 2020 we have added three beehives and two young Meyer lemon trees to accompany the mature sour orange trees. There are wild blackberries, muscadine grapes, and mulberry trees during different parts of the summer.

You can sometimes see a variety of wildlife such as squirrels, deer, wild hogs, bobcat, along with a variety of snake species both poisonous (several different rattle snakes, water moccasins, and coral snakes) as well as some beautiful king snakes and rat snakes. There are also a pair of red tail hawks living in the area, owls, bats, and woodpeckers.

These campsites are dry-camping and boondocking only so please come prepared (generators are allowed). There is plenty of room for recreation like corn hull, frisbee and even practicing your golf drive. Hanging a hammock is also encouraged. Don't forget to bring your fur babies. There are no leash laws here but we do ask that your pet be kept under control.

If you plan on staying in the area for a few days you can also enjoy a canoe trip in Village Mills located approximately 30 minutes south. If you have your own canoe or kayak there is no charge and pets are welcome. There are also a couple of places that rent boats and provide shuttle service.

This property has been COVID-19 free all year!

Tamara's property is beautiful and well kept. She provided helpful directions and met me outside as soon as we arrived. She directed me toward the area and gave me free reign to select my spot. I was able to watch stars and fireflies at night. It's very peaceful and secluded. Able to hear the tiniest bit of road noise, but not anything to really be distracted by. I did make the mistake of coming on a really hot weekend, but was grateful for shade. Another seasonal consideration, there were quite a few flies in May that were pesky, but I'm sure just due to the time of year.

I do apologize for responding so late, but for some reason I missed the review. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay. The pesky flies were love bugs and they do come out every May and August for about 30 to 45 days each time.

I made the mistake of not checking the weather accurately, so i arrived right after rain. I will say the site looked to be very promising in dryer weather. My fiance and i walked into the forest and found several secluded camp sites that look forward to exploring more!

Nice place! Very nice host who welcomed us, even though we booked very last minute. Her place was peaceful with a walking trail through the woods.
