The site was private and peaceful. A bit buggy but it’s to be expected with the surrounding water. The beach access was great and the toilet provided was super convenient. Tara also provided us with plenty of wood which was super helpful. Overall, Tara was super kind, helpful, and the owner of a beautiful property. 10/10 would stay again.

Tara’s land is absolutely beautiful! Such a welcoming and accommodating host, we had an absolute blast. We would love to visit again in the future. Our dog had an amazing experience too, she got to make new friends and do a little swimming too! I highly recommend walking around the property because each and every site on Tara’s property is amazing!

I booked very late at night, early the next morning I was already receiving email, welcome text w/ extremely detailed directions and weather update (called for storms and passing rain day that I booked).
Tara responded very quickly.
I thought that was a welcoming greeting for my comfort level to this new (to my friend and I) form of camping.
That night I wasn't able to camp and was panicked because no reception caused me to have texts and emails in undeliverable mode, she was extremely understanding once they finally delivered.
Although I cannot be specific to physical location of site, I can say VERY quick to respond, friendly and well organized.

We had the best time camping at Tara's! The place is absolutely stunning, private, and offers a lot of options. We hiked with our dog, we swam in the lake, and we also went out in the lake with Tara's little boat and kayaks. We had a blast. Tara was super friendly and made us feel so welcome! We'll be back.

Very nice setup. Private camping areas, delivery of firewood, easy access to quiet lakes. They do go above and beyond to help provide a great camping experience.

This site and our experience camping on Tara's land was fantastic. The woods, hiking, and lake are all beautiful. We were also given a rowboat to use while we stayed. The views from on the lake were incredible! Tara was incredibly nice and recommended great local sites to see. I would highly recommend and will definitely be sharing this location with friends and family. Thank you so much Tara, we had a blast and will plan to be back!

We had an amazing time at Tara’s ‘Meadow’! It was clean and included a fire pit and wood. Not to mention, this was a beautiful spot! Tara was quick to respond to all of my messages.
Thank you for an amazing weekend!
