We had such a great stay! The campsite was flat and grassy and made for a comfortable sleep as compared to other places we’ve camped. The lakefront area was gorgeous - there was plants of room for our kids and dogs to play. The lake is super cute - it’s small with 10-15 hours around it. The perfect size for amateurs like us to kayak, row, and pedal around it. Our kids loved jumping off of the dock (the lake was surprisingly warm!). We had a great stay - it was super family friendly! The hosts were lovely and helpful and even had a map and printed sheet with information ready for us upon arrival which I really appreciated.
Our family of six (2 adults, 2 kids, 2 dogs) has done a ton of Hipcamp this summer, visiting about 10 sites. This site was hands down the best place we stayed at. It was amazing. The pictures are amazing and they don’t even do it justice. Bill was a delight, extremely helpful (especially when we got lost on the very very simple trek to the beach but we can’t follow instructions) and very kind. We were in awe of his property and the area in general and he was happy to give us his time and chat. The beach is quite a trek from the campsite, but so so worth it. We had to carry both of our kids down to the beach because it was steep and our backs hurt and we didn’t care because the lake front area was just heavenly. We spent eight straight hours down there and probably could have stayed longer. It’s been two weeks since our trip and we haven’t stopped talking about it. Thank you Bill!
We had an absolutely amazing time! This campsite is such a gem. The pond was perfect. My kids loved going out in the canoe and kayaks, jumping off of the dock, and hanging out on the rock sand beach. We also got to feed the chickens and eat some fresh eggs for breakfast! Samantha and her husband were incredibly welcoming and we had smiles on our faces the whole weekend. We would have already booked a return trip if their calendar wasn’t all booked!
We loved Cairn Meadows! It was the most remote (and rural!) Hipcamp site we’ve experienced yet, which was a real treat. It was perfect for us because it felt like true camping in the woods, but was developed enough to have a picnic table and fire pit - necessary for beginners like us. My toddler son loved exploring fallen trees and branches and made all kinds of forts. The was plenty of space for our tent and hammock, and our dogs were able to roam freely which made them happy campers as well. It was an amazing trip.
Mickelberry Forest Gardens was a perfect camping spot for families with kids - there was a huge grass area to run around plus chickens and ducks to admire! There is not much shade so be sure to pack lots of sunscreen.
We had a blast at Camp at ValleyBrook! Doris and her husband were so nice and have clearly put a lot of time in getting the campsite ready - there was a very clean outhouse that they built along with a great newly built sink and food prep area. The sink and counter were on a raised platform that made for a great stage when our kids wanted to put on shows! There was also a picnic table. We had plenty of room to set up a tent, hang our hammock, start a campfire, and run around. We also brought our two dogs who we kept on 50 foot leashes tied to a tree, and they had plenty of room to roam safely. There were some traffic noises but you had to look for the street in order to see it, so it felt very isolated.
