Great stay!!!! 5 stars!!!🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Brad & Pam were both great. The camper was amazing, it was very clean & spacious for a family of 6, plus it also had a let out couch & other great amenities! They both communicated with us before our stay & told us about places we can vist which helped us out a lot, since it was our first time being in Ohio. Outside of the property was great also, very clean. My family & I would to say thank you Brad & Pam for having us, awesome stay!

Our stay was EXACTLY what we needed. We will most likely be staying again. And believe it or not it was perfect for a family of 4. Everything was perfect!

Great place to stay

I can't say enough abut the place and especially about Brad's willingness to help us have a good fishing experience. Brad went above and beyond expectations. Thanks much and will go back. Bernie

Fun Lake Weekend

This Camper was GREAT. There was enough space for 5 adults to have a nice weekender at the lake. We enjoyed the location and closeness to the ferry and restaurants if needed. We hope to return next summer.

5/5 Excellent

Just As Advertised

Our group really enjoyed staying in this camper...it offered up a camping like experience but with protection from some heavy rains that came down a couple times. Would stay here again in a heartbeat. So close to so many things to do in the area and also a pretty good value!
