"What former campers have said:"

Jay P

Verified Buyer: Yes

"The place was exactly as described - even more private than I had expected and certainly nothing flashy - but I don't think anyone is expecting "flash". Overall, a clean and affordable place to stay if you're looking for a decent night's sleep at a rock-bottom price."

Anthony R

Verified Buyer: Yes

"Awesome stay for those that love the outdoors or want to have a nice camping trip. Laura made the whole process super easy and was fast to respond to any questions or concerns I had. Very, very helpful. Highly recommended stay and if I'm back in the area I'll be back!"
