I really like this place. The pictures actually don’t do it justice at all, it was much different than I expected. There was a peninsula where we were able to drive on and setup camp. It was pretty private. The site is in the backyard of their house, but it’s a huge yard and the separation makes It feel like you’re in your own space. The host was pretty nice and available when we needed things like running water. There’s no bathrooms, it’s real primitive camping! He actually has a row boat that was for rent and we really really enjoyed going out on the lake and fishing. There are lots of catfish there! We definitely will be back to this camp spot and would recommend it to others as well.

Had a fun experience over all; the location on the lake allowed for some fun adventures!
Important clarifications- the inside toilet and showers were available “for emergencies only”. The host really expected for people to bring their own or plan for primitive camping.
The rowboat is available to rent for $10/day.
Their were piles of trash/rubble around the camping areas... so maybe not safe for young kids.
