Waking up in “town” all alone was awesome! The space is grassy and cushiony and full of love. A dog came by the tent to say good morning. Very nice. And wasn’t it a good morning because of that. We met hecka sweet piglets and pigs and wandered back to our car in chicken city. This is one of the best campsites I’ve ever stayed in! The only drawback is that the site itself is a couple hundred yards from the parking area—as such, if you want to bring down tent, cooking supplies, stuff to do, etc., it’s a little bit of a trek. It’d be awesome if there was more access to it via car especially as the bus, trailer and yurt are all quite a bit closer to parking even though much less is required to be brought to those Airbnb spots. But really, you can’t beat the fact that this space is lovely and cozy and has plenty of room (with NO obnoxious RVs and RVers!!). I’ll stay here again any time I’m in the area.
It was as if I stepped out of my home and into a new home. We’ve been on the road for over a week camping at plenty of dusty, big-ridden, off the beaten path sites and coming to camp Carlow felt like a little bit of luxury! Iris and her husband were both extremely kind and welcoming and the grass is perfect for wandering barefoot. I’d drive an hour out of the way to stay here again :)
Very pretty place to camp; however, there were a few drawbacks:
Lots of mosquitos, loud radio (most likely someone leaving for work) at 4:30 am which woke us up, and very long gravel and bumpy road to get there. The directions were completely accurate, but they could have given a warning about the bumpiness of the gravel road. Lastly, the instructions weren’t completely clear on where exactly to camp- ended up putting our tent where we predicted the host meant.
Honestly one of the most beautiful campsites I’ve ever stayed in. We took a full moon walk around to a small pond and hill on the property and woke up in the meadow to a gorgeous sunrise. I wish we could stay for weeks!
