This place was fantastic. The sites were big and open, the host was friendly and accommodating, and the campsite itself was a blast. The kids were given a scavenger hunt to take them around the property. It was one of the most fun camping experiences we've ever had.
I wanted to love this site, and it was lovely. I was really excited based on the reviews I had read and its status as one of the top HipCamp sites. Prior to the trip we were told that the weather had prevented mowing of the sites around the pond, and I understand that there was nothing that can be done about the weather, and we were told a few days prior to arrival that we could stay behind the barn. On the day of arrival we tried reaching out to let them know we were on our way, we tried checking in and calling on arrival which were not returned. It is entirely possible that this lack of interaction is standard for HipCamp, and that it's just something we are unaccustomed to being new to the platform. We had also paid in advance for firewood that we were not able to use.
When Mary describes Marick Acres as her own little slice of heaven on Earth she has it exactly right. Their plot is absolutely beautiful, and it could not be cared for by nicer people. This was our first Hipcamp experiemce, and the bar has most definitely been set. Unbelievably friendly hosts, all sorts of room for the kids to run around in (we described it to family as having our own private meadow). If you are anywhere near central Indiana this is the place you need to stay. My only regret is that we were just passing through and couldn't stay longer.
