We provide 5 rods for fishing, where we have large-mouth bass, catfish and bluegills. There are 5 miles of trails to walk through and see who can spot the most wildlife. A ride on the farm motor vehicle, the Gator, is ready to give you a welcome tour of the property. At this very private estate, build a fire at the campground and enjoy smores as you gaze at the star filled sky. Visit the horses by day, do not forget the carrots. The smoker is a big hit with the gentlemen-ladies, take the night off! Eat BBQ made by a noted local, or purchase BUFFALO less than 2 miles away and take a free farm tour.
