    My kids and I stayed 2 nights, while passing through Illinois. Our stay was approved quickly, there was great communication, and we were met outside when we pulled up. The site was fairly level, clean and private and we had plenty of room for our car as well as our 33' motorhome. He helped us backup and repeatedly told us to let him know if we needed anything. Access to electric and water was amazing and greatly appreciated. We stay at a lot of campgrounds, but I rested so much better here and felt safe. We also had a nice area to walk our dogs in. Great hosts! Thank you 😊

    Another great HH experience !! Steve was a wonderful host … met us as soon as we arrived and backed us into a perfectly manicured, level, private spot right behind their house. Nice view of their woods (expected deer to step out any moment). He showed his “hosting” experience right from the get go … answered questions before we even asked. He’d thought of everything to make our stay comfortable. Electric hookup and water was available … VERY NICE! Steve was very pleasant and engaging. Thanx Steve for hosting us.

    Steve was such a delightful host. Kind, gracious, and humorous. We've only been here two nights, and it's been too short a stay! Ha! The space is incredibly private, picturesque, needed very little leveling (in fact, we didn't really "have" to level more if we didn't want to), and water/electric hookups are perfectly positioned. In fact, Steve's hose was already hooked up and we didn't even need to pull ours out! His place is extremely clean and welcoming. He recommended good food (BBQ joint is locally owned), and he encouraged us to feel free to use the fire pit (which we did tonight as we watched the lightening bugs). Would stay here again without a doubt.
