Date of Stay: August, 2010
Homestead by the River stresses that they are a family campground. I have been to many campground where it is loud all night with people drinking, laughing, yelling and yes fighting and swearing. You will not find that here. One of my daughters hates camping and she loved it and wanted to stay another night and asked to come back next year. We were thrilled. She learned to ride her bike at this campground. I saw one person who drove above the speed limit and noticeably a bit reckless and she was a young girl. The team of husband, wife and father run a tight ship which for the camper who wants to get away and have peace and quiet this place is a 10. The sites are spacious, clean (no cigarette butts, and yes my husband is a smoker) and you won't find dog waste everywhere or trash. People respect the natural surroundings. The farm is wonderful for the kids and the employees could not be any more helpful and accommodating. My family will be going back next year.

If you like to party and drink all night, this is the place for you. Our last stay there was Memorial Day weekend. Lots of drinking, swearing and loud talking and laughing all night long. We had our meals with our neighbors, not because we wanted to but because the sites are so tight there is no privacy. My husband had the neighbors dog on our table one night and the barking in the park woke us at 5 a.m. So, unless you are just going to bed and had a few, you were up at 5 a.m. every day. We won't be going back there.
