It will be an exciting adventure for your kids to help set up the tent, sleep under the stars, and experience the great outdoors!

You may never have gone camping either, so make your next vacation a first time experience for everyone in your family! Plus, your kids will love staying at our campground!

2. Refreshing Break from Technology

Most children tend to spend quite a bit of time in front of a screen, whether it’s a phone or a TV. Our campground is technology free! While there is wireless internet access available at our pavilion, you can enjoy being disconnected from the rest of the world at your campsite. By being disconnected in this way, your children have a chance to focus on the beauty of nature and learn more about their environment, all while having a blast! Plus, you’ll get the quality time you’ve been searching for with everyone being able to focus on each other instead of their technology!
