Do you want a quiet respite from all life’s busyness? “ As ewe wish.”
Camping or “roughing it smoothly” by a three acre lake that Canadian geese visit. You are welcome to fish (catch and release only). Fire pit area too! Canoes available for rental. Jersey cows, sheep, goats and our sweet Great Pyrenees dog roam about.
Despite the rustic atmosphere, you’re only 25 minutes from downtown St. Louis, Xtreme Paintball is just down the road, and the quaint town of Millstadt is a few minutes away.

The space
We are a working farm, so you will see large animals about. Please keep small children away from them, and also watch out for electric fences! No swimming, but fishing (catch and release) is allowed, and ask about canoes, available for rental. Feel free to use the fire ring for campfires. One bundle of wood is included with your stay. Extra bundles can be purchased ($5 each). Put money in the container provided (honor system). Put fire out when done (bucket provided and lake water).
Please make sure to read our manual before you come so you understand what you are renting (not a hotel but a camper).

Guest access
You are free to roam about the area by the RV and lake. Please stay out of areas around the nearby houses and any outbuildings. Please don’t go through any gates (other than the entry one).

Other things to note
You'll be basically camping, but "roughing it smoothly." Our RV is boondocked, which means it is not hooked up to water or power. Lights and water pump are run by using a 12V DC battery system. We have a water tank with 100-gallon capacity. We encourage guests to conserve water, but if you run out, there is a hose nearby to fill up the tank again. If you need to use the microwave or air conditioning or heater, you have to turn on the generator.
At present we don't have a working fridge, but provide coolers for you to purchase ice and put your food in. We do plan to get a new fridge soon, and will update our amenities section when that happens.
Because we are a working farm and there are inherent dangers associated with this, we do ask that you sign a Hold Harmless Agreement.
Please make sure to read the manual before you come so you understand what we are all about.

Millstadt, Illinois, United States

Xtreme Paintball is just down the road. Our town, Millstadt is a short drive away and has a grocery store and gas station for necessities. Several larger towns are a 15-20 minute drive in either direction, and St. Louis is not much farther if you get a hankering for the big city.
