We were blown away by the hospitality of our hosts and the incredible property that we got to stay on. The property is hundreds of acres of beautiful woods including a small lake, pond, hiking trails through the forest, and a hobby farm with sheep, goats, and guineas. There is also a pony and a donkey that roam part of the property. There are two beautiful Great Pyrenees dogs that watch over the property and they are very friendly and keep bears and other critters away. Kelly and Mike live on the property with their children and run a Christian camp for kids there. There were no campers present when we were there, but they let us use the bath house and all of the amenities that they have available for the kids. We set up our tent in a grassy area surrounded by trees and Mike provided us with a fire ring and firewood.
It was very private and extremely quiet during the night. Mike is truly one of the kindest and most helpful people I have ever encountered and was there to help every step of the way. I would recommend this experience for anyone staying in the area, it will definitely exceed your expectations!
If you know what you are expecting, this place could be great. We were under the impression from the photos and the listing that we would have our own site for our tent and some relative privacy. It was Labor Day weekend and we booked pretty last minute, so we knew it would be busy. Our site had cars parked in it, so we barely had room for our tent. The park was packed with RVs and there was probably 5 to 10 feet between sites. If you have kids or are trying to have more of a social partying experience this campground has lots of activity and is close to the river for swimming. The man who greeted us when we arrived also could not have been nicer. It was a nice place, just not what we expected.
Candace was very friendly and her son Sequoia is a super precocious, friendly little guy. The farm is beautiful and has ducks walking around freely. I will say that it was an extremely rustic experience. Tons of bugs and animal noises at night, and you have to be prepared to hike through some really tall grass and weeds to get to the tent site. Overall it was a cool experience.
The host was wonderful and took us in extremely last minute. There were several other people staying there that made the experience less-than ideal. There was a man with a fairly aggressive dog camping right next to the toilet, making it difficult for us to use. Our camp site was very close to another camper who was not at all friendly and it was sloped at a fairly high angle. Overall, the place was clean and well taken care of. It's a bit quirky, but if you keep an open mind it's a good place to stay for a night.
