About this micro camping
We have lots of available prairie to set up camp on. The native grassland is covered with Indian Paintbrush, Prairie Phlox, and flowers too numerous to list. Our property is on the top of a hill so we have an excellent view of the vast sunsets, which never disappoint.
We are located equidistant from two large lakes, Perry Lake and Clinton Lake, which have mountain bike trails, hiking trails, and ample docks for boating.

Access: the land is open, but campers must follow the indicated driving areas to get to the camping areas.
Hours: there are no restrictions, but we do ask that patrons please inform us if they are coming and going after 10:00 p.m.; this is our home and we do have children.
Noise pollution: we like our neighbors and even though we reside on nearly 20 acres, we have a number of neighbors very close (we have the largest lot of land in the neighborhood, the rest of the neighborhood lots are much smaller and have a semi-residential feel). Please refrain from loud music and loud partying. There is abundant wildlife on the property including whitetail deer and wild turkeys, and we do not want to drive them away. Our neighbors also pasture dozens of cattle adjacent to our property which are sensitive to loud noise. Violators will be told to leave immediately.
Off-road vehicles: it is tempting to run our pastures with ATVs, UTVs, or dirt bikes, but please don't. The native vegetation is beautiful and we want it to grow unhindered without being torn up by off-road vehicles. Also, see the above addendum on noise pollution.
Fires: at this time there are no fire pits. If you wish to have a campfire, you must check in with us first. We will want to make sure that a proper fire pit is dug and cleared, and also check the local fire weather page for burn bans; wild prairie fires are a very real danger during certain months in our area and we take it very seriously. Also, we bale the native grass in our pastures and do not want to lose that due to a fire.
Smoking: prohibited during red flag warnings/burn bans. Otherwise, please be aware of dry conditions and be responsible when you smoke. All butts MUST be picked up; leaving butts on the ground will not be tolerated.
Trash: carry out what you carry in. We have no commercial trash services at this time, so you will need to plan accordingly.
Alcohol: be responsible. We have no problem with alcohol on the property, but we will not hesitate to send you packing if you will not be responsible.
Pets: pets are welcome! Just be sure to keep track of them.
Please, be responsible and respectful of our property. We absolutely love it out here and have worked really hard to be where we are. We want to share what is ours with the world, but we will not tolerate bad behavior.
