Take a break

5/5 Excellent

Awesome experience!!!
This was exactly what we needed. The cabins are beautiful as well as the lake. We fished two days while there, about 3 hours each day and caught 9 catfish. The kids had a blast with the local animals . They loved to feed the horses & donkey as well as spend time with the other animals . While there turtles were hatching across the property . The kids were even able to return a few to the lake. I can’t recall staying at a more peaceful place. The price was excellent and the owners are simply amazing people.. I’d rate them 5 stars too :) The pictures are great online but trust me they do not do it justice. There are also great local restaurants we tried & all recommendations were great. There are grills at every cottage for your convenience as well. I could go on & on. Well done!! Will visit again!

Best place to get away from it all.
This is a wonderful place to unplug from the outside world and reconnect with your husband or wife. You can't find a better place for peace and quit and sitting on the porch and looking at a beautiful lake full of unspoiled nature. You're not sitting on your porch looking across the lake at someone else sitting on their porch looking at you sitting on yours. The three nights that we stayed, we felt like we were the only people for miles around. Tom and his wife who Owen the property are good people who care about their guests but don't intrude on you either.

2nd time staying
This was our second time staying at Old Camp Joy and we will be back for a third. Tom was easy to communicate with and answered all of our questions before and during our stay. The grounds are beautiful even in winter. We were able to bring our own Kayak this time for some fishing. It rained for most of a day and Tom offered us games to keep us occupied. It’s a great place to get away and recharge in a beautiful setting.
