We offer unique stays with our Tipi and Covered Wagon sites, or you can spend the night under the stars in one of our Tent sites. There is fun for all ages - from giant chess and checkers, a 9 hole disc golf course, fishing and more. You can also plan a visit to our paintball and survival games locations.

Cleanliness and Consideration

Please leave your campsite as you found it and leave no trace. We ask that you are respectful to your surroundings, wildlife, and neighboring campers.

Weather Conditions

First and foremost, you must be prepared for the weather. Watch your weather app and prepare for it. If it's going to rain, prepare to get wet. If it is going to be hot or cold, dress and prepare for it. Sleeping bag, appropriate for weather conditions, as there is no heat or A/C in the Tipis. There are 4 cots in each Tipi, and electricity in two of the Tipis if you want to bring an air mattress. Basically anything that makes you comfortable. Camping is supposed to be a happy time!

Covered wagon was awesome, comfy cots. Rain got in the way of a fire but we still had a nice time relaxing in our covered tent with heat. Bathrooms were clean and close by.
