James was a great host, very communicative and he has lots of plans to make this land into multiple campsites, I'm excited to see his finished product. The lot has 2 parking spaces, but they aren't side by side, so some coordinating is needed if you have two cars. However there are 3 more parking spaces over on lot 49 which is helpful. When we arrived another group of campers had already set up at the main site which included the firepit, fire extinguisher, trash can, and shovel/rake. James told us they would be there, so it didn't come as a surprise. The main site looked nice and there was plenty of room to make ourselves another camp somewhere else on the lot, we'd just have to find rocks to make a firepit. However, we had to walk directly through the other campers site to get to our potential site and we did not feel comfortable doing that, especially because we came with a lot of stuff, so it would have been multiple awkward trips. We did not end up camping here, but we did take advantage of the lake which was amazing. We parked right at the beach, otherwise it was like a 5min walk from the campsite. There's at least 4 parking spots at the beach- you drive past it as you get to the campsite. This neighborhood and lake belong to a private association, and we did get asked by one random guy who said he lived at the end of the road, where we were staying- just replied with guests of Lot 47. He said he didn't like non-residents coming to use the lake, so that was a bit off-putting, but thankfully he didn't stay long and we kept swimming. I would recommend this campsite if you book both of the camp listings, so there's no awkward situations; it would be really great for large groups!
Gorgeous lake. We had perfect weather and stayed down at the beach most of the weekend. We used Sams old charcoal grill to make a firepit in the sand, using large driftwood logs to keep it upright and create airflow. The stars were incredible. The lamp included in the tiny house needed new batteries so Sam ran to the store to get us some, which was very helpful or else we would have had no light! One of the three tiki torches worked, which provided a nice glow to see the path to the port-o-potty late at night, which was very clean, we used our headlamps at night for light inside it. We loved the natural spring that kept our drinks cold when we ran out of ice, and that Sam let us check out late to enjoy the lake longer. The bed was comfy, as was the floor, since we had to sleep 3 people and a dog inside- we had booked the tent listing too, but could not use it since a critter bit a hole through the screen door and used the provided mattresses as a restroom. The tiny house did not have a grill, but we used the single burner propane camp stove from the tent listing. The tiny house came with a propane heater, but we did not use it because it hadn't been tested for carbon monoxide, thankfully we brought warm sleeping bags as it did get down below 50degrees one night. The listing says renting the sailboat is an additional cost option, but the boat had a hole in it so we couldn't use it. Technically the site is private, but you can see houses next door, hear neighboring parties, and the beach is shared by a couple other homes on the lake, so we saw neighbors every day. The tiny house is about 60' from the tent site and you have to walk right by its entrance to get to the shared bathroom and parking area, and vice versa to get down to the beach- We were glad we rented both sites to have the most privacy, even if we couldn't use the tent.
One of our favorite campsites to date! Nick was an awesome host, very communicative, helpful, and we really appreciated the $5 bundle of wood already waiting for us when we arrived- wicked happy he opened his land up to people for camping. 5 of us stayed at site #3 with two tents and a three-legged dog- she loved exploring the site. There was more than enough room at the gigantic site, we only took up a sliver of the space. The views were incredible, even from the outhouse which was such a clean and cute space! We stayed the 3rd weekend of October and it was wicked windy one day, our tents almost blew away/collapsed a few times, but then we parked our cars on one side of them to help block the wind. We even woke up to snow flurries the day we were leaving which made the views even more gorgeous. There are 5 other sites on the property but we felt secluded the entire time, even when there was a Halloween party happening in the valleybelow, we could hear the music but it actually made the night more fun for us! Can't wait to camp here again!
