Additional Information

From December 23 to April 1, the accommodation only rents for week-long or month-long stays. This is a rural setting and does not have Wi-Fi or cable. The camp is home to several longtime and permanent residents, some of which choose to display confederate flags. The hosts are not responsible for how others maintain their lots and do not know who will be visiting from day to day. It’s not unusual to see pitched tents outside the glamping tent. Read more
