First, be aware where you’ll be going. This site is down a vehicle path, not really a “driveway”, so if you’re in a Ferrari or a full dress, lowered Harley, you might not want to go off road to get there. The gate is easy to miss, but the hosts made sure to mark it with a bright flag and texted me a map, which was really helpful.
When I arrived, and the mosquitos swarmed, I started to have some doubts and considered pitching my tent anyway, but the tipi cool factor won out. I started a fire (with the provided tinder and firewood), lit the tiki torches and sprayed myself with some bug spray, which all kept the skeeters away.
The interior of the tipi was outfitted with a couple folding camp chairs, cots, a mosquito coil (lighter provided), LED lantern and green grass carpet. The cots were a bit small for me, so so opted to use my air mattress instead, but I certainly appreciated the thought behind providing them.
Surprisingly enough, once I closed off the tipi door, no mosquitos got in. I don’t know why, but once I killed the few that came in with me, I was fine... The native Americans were, obviously, onto something with this shelter design. :-)
Bring your own water, I didn’t use the pit toilet, so can’t comment on that, but I imagine it’s like any pit toilet alive ever used.
I’d highly recommend this site and, if I’m back this way, I’d book it again.
