This is my second time staying on Emory's property and it was just as amazing as my first trip. Emory is a great host who takes the time to ensure your stay is very comfortable. He is very welcoming and eager to show you his property on which he has created a beautiful orchard. This site was very nice because it is very private, has an abundance of shade (especially great in the summer heat), and is right next to a creek (which you can cool off in). The site met all of our needs with a nice fire ring, a toilet, and a clean picnic table. There is a lot of opportunity for exploring on the multiple dirt roads on the property. It was the perfect site for a fun weekend :)

This campground exceeded all expectations. With a picnic table, pit toilet, thick grass, and lots of privacy, it felt more like glamping than camping on this property.

After spending some time setting up camp and stretching after our long car ride, I decided to go explore down the backside of the campsite, into a wooded area. I had completely forgotten that this campsite sits adjacent to a creek, and was delighted when I found it by happy accident. Since I was there late December, I opted to look and not jump in, but I can only imagine how amazing it would be to camp there in the summer and spend all day sitting in the shallow pools of clear creek water.

The toilet is minimal, but better than a cathole! Double-check the seat nooks-and-crannies for spiders before sitting down--I found 3 little buggers hiding out. If you're planning on staying for a while, I would recommend bringing some extra rolls of toilet paper and hand sanitizer!

If you have a smaller vehicle, I wouldn't recommend driving through the first gate (just walk). It was pretty muddy and bumpy and my Subaru definitely came in handy.

The water spigot was a little bit hard to find, but it's definitely there. To access it, walk over to the barn (can't miss it) and look for the circular trough. The spigot is by the trough (see photos).

Overall, I would highly recommend this campsite and will definitely be coming back.

The entry gate doubles as jungle-gym for those that are flexible enough! The campsite is tucked against a wooded area. Even in the winter it's beautiful.There are a few spaces you can set your tent up in this space. We opted for the spot under the biggest tree.Park your car outside the second gate and walk into your beautiful and secluded campsite. No gate code to get in!
