History

It all started as a joke!

After selling all but 5 acres of my farmland in mid 2013, I developed a story to thwart the comments from all those around me who admonished me for not bulldozing the place and having it planted to more corn.  I told them I was creating a "teepee timeshare".  The ground has been in my family since 1885 and I wanted to do something special with it.

"Timeshare" is still a joke, but the rest is for real.  The vision was to create a primitive campground where you can sleep in a teepee.  It is be a campground for introverts.  If you are the kind of person who doesn't enjoy traditional campgrounds where you're packed in like sardines and where your neighbor always seems to be the "Cousin Eddie" type, you'll enjoy my place.  You're in charge.  If you want the whole place to yourself, so be it.  If you want to invite a few close friends to camp with you, that's great.  If you want to have your annual family reunion there - wonderful!
