A beautiful and secluded property. Caught a few fish and enjoyed the shooting stars from the campfire.

The site was very secluded. The direction were accurate and led us straight to the right spot. The small lake was nice for fishing and a nice short kayak. I would definitely go back and stay again.

Site is great but the host not so much. They notified us the day before that someone would be coming to fish at the site, and when we asked how that could be when we booked the entire site they told us we had misunderstood the listing and that that site wasn’t “exclusive.” The individual who came to fish however told us that they had simply double booked it since they use multiple apps to list it. To the hosts credit, they did offer us another site but it was too last minute and we already had some from our group en route. They also did not provide us the code to unlock the gate to the site until several hours after the booking had begun, and not until it was nearly dark, despite sending multiple texts and emails. We were sitting there waiting at that gate for quite some time.
