IMPORTANT THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE YOU ARRIVE

Parking & Getting To Your Campsite

  • Upon entering the property, follow the long driveway up to the parking lot and park your vehicle there. (You'll see a 'Welcome' sign in the parking lot.)

  • Vehicles are not allowed on the path leading to the campsites. Golf carts are located in the parking lot and are free for guests to use for loading gear. The back seats fold down to optimize space.

  • From the parking lot, you may take the golf carts to your site to unload your belongings. Make sure to only drive the golf carts on the designated cart path (see the Camp Map) Golf carts are not equipped to handle the walking trails.

  • Whether you're driving the cart or walking on the path, just follow the yellow camp signs back to your site.

  • Please return carts to the lot and turn the key to the 'off ' position when finished unloading your gear, so that other guests may use them upon their arrival or departure. Do not leave carts parked at your campsite.

  • If the main parking lot is full, you may leave your vehicle in the overflow area, located by the detached garage and monkey bars- which you pass on the way in.

 

 

Things To Bring

  • The Hilton Group Site: Please bring your own food, drinks, coolers, ice, pots/ pans and single use items- like paper plates, plastic cups, plastic forks/ spoons. (We provide sheets/pillow cases and blankets, 3 electrical outlets in each tent, free firewood/ fires starters, one mini fridge, coffee and coffee maker, one 5-burner outdoor grill & grill utensils, and campfire roasting sticks.)

  • Vintage Trailers: Please bring your own food, drinks, coolers, and ice. You are welcome to bring your own disposable utensils/ other single use items if you would like. (We provide sheets/ pillow cases and blankets, free firewood/ fire starters, one mini fridge, coffee and coffee maker, drinking cups, plates/bowls, one pot, one pan, silverware, interior cooking utensils, and campfire roasting sticks. Each trailer also has a 4-burner indoor cook top and 5-burner outdoor grill & grill utensils.)

  • The Prairie- Rustic Grass Site: Please bring everything you would normally bring for traditional camping. (We provide free firewood/ fire starters, a picnic table, a cooking grate for over the fire and wooden stumps for siting.) 

  • We highly recommend packing hiking boots or rain boots, as the trails can get muddy when it rains. Flip flops are not recommended for walking on the trails, as the terrain is uneven in quite a few spots. 

  • We also recommend bringing your favorite folding camp chair. We have tree stumps set around the fire pits as well as picnic tables and some outdoor seating available at each site.

  • Please bring your own toiletries, sunscreen, allergy medicine, and insect repellent. Remember- this is camping and there are mosquitoes. 

  • Please bring your own board games and yard games- due to COVID-19, we are not providing these items.

  • Guests wanting to paddle in The Wetlands may bring their own canoe, kayak, or paddle board. We do not allow motorized boats, jet-skis, or loud music/ partying while out on the on the protected wetlands. Please be respectful to the natural habitat and to our neighbors.

  • Guests staying in the vintage trailers are encouraged to pack smaller bags, rather than large bags or suitcases, since these have tighter living spaces. 

  • For guests bringing 1-2 dogs, we suggest bringing a blanket to lay over the bedding to help keep dirt and pet hair to a minimum, should the dog jump onto the bed(s). (Especially in the Airstream and in the tents at The Hilton- as we have nice, antique blankets at each of those sites.) Also, please be sure to pick up after your dog so that there is NO pet waste left at the campsite when you checkout. 

  • We provide 5-6 bundles of firewood for each campsite. Additional firewood is available fur purchase at $5 per bundle. We do not allow wood to be brought in from outside the campground so that we can prevent possible infestations and protect the forest. 

 

COVD-19

We want to assure our guests that we are taking every precaution to help keep everyone safe during the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

  • The campground is set on 80 acres, with each campsite on its own 1-2 acres, making social distancing from other guests very easy to practice! 

  • Our bathroom building has 4 separate bathrooms, so we designated each one to a specific campsite. That way, there is no shared space with other guests.

  • We also carefully sanitize the inside of each bathroom, canvas tent, and trailer with EPA approved disinfectants after each group checks-out. Door handles, knobs on propane grills, and any outdoor tables and chairs are also sanitized. Sheets are washed in hot water and cycled out every other booking.

  • Golf carts are provided for transporting belongings (and guests) to the campsites from the parking lot and vice versa. Each golf cart has disinfectant wipes and alcohol-based hand sanitizer inside for guests to use while borrowing the carts. We also clean these carts between bookings. 

  • Finally, while we do provide some dishes and cooking equipment for most sites (which we also clean), we strongly encourage guests to bring and use their own single-use items. This includes, but is not limited to, paper plates, napkins, plastic utensils, and plastic cups.

  • Each adult in your reservation must fill out a COVID-19 Waiver before checking in.

Meet Your Neighbors

  • The dark blue house you see at the end of the driveway is ours! We are blessed to own and live on this beautiful property and we're excited to share the land with you during the summer months! Please keep to the South side of the fence that leads to the campsites and avoid any areas or paths marked 'private'- as those lead directly to our home. Also, you might see our small, fluffy, black and white dog, Junior, when you arrive. He'll probably bark, but don't worry, he's a very good boy!

  • Although our neighbors aren't very close by, we still want to emphasize that no guest shall trespass on their property. This includes the farm and fields surrounding the camp and next to the Hilton site- labeled 'Buddy's Farm' on the Camp Map. Also, please be aware that it is farmland, so don't be surprised if you see and hear a tractor harvesting during your stay.

  • Be courteous to your fellow campers. No amplified music or excessively loud partying is allowed from 10 pm to 7 am.

Clean up

  • Upon checking out, we ask that guests bag up any trash from the inside of their unit and place it into the larger trash/ recycling bins outside on each campsite. Additionally, please do not leave any loose trash or pet waste on the ground at your campsite.

  • All decorations, wool blankets, and furnishings must be accounted for and undamaged at time of checkout. Most of these items are one-of-kind antiques and irreplaceable. 

  • Guests staying in the trailers are asked to wash and dry any cookware/ dishes that were used. Please also remember to leave the trailer keys back where you found them inside the trailer before leaving the property. 

  • Generally, try to leave the site the way you found it.

  • No need to strip the bedding. We'll take care of that, as well as the sanitation.

Showers & Bathrooms

  • Showers have been completed! Two outdoor, open-air style showers are now ready for guests to use. 

  • Please remember to ONLY use the bathroom that is designated for your campsite so we can continue to guarantee higher sanitation standards during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

  • Please do not rinse food down the drains in the bathrooms. 

  • There are also very old outhouses located in several spots off the trails. Do not go inside of these. They have not been renovated and are not meant for use.
