98% of guests said this spot was as clean as expected during their visit.


Cocklebur seeds have shown up in the grass by the wetland. Not advised for long hair dogs. This is a farm, so livestock and livestock “byproducts” are inevitable. Also, farms in winter can be wet and muddy. As well, the island is a migratory bird wildlife refuge, so “byproducts” from sand hill cranes, herons, geese, ducks, etc are also inevitable. Additionally, reactive and working dogs may not be able to share fence line with livestock, and unless you request otherwise, livestock may be adjacent. Please note, this is a working farm community as well as wildlife refuge. There is a muddy wetland, there may be farm equipment, heavy trucks on rural highway, neighbors dogs, livestock, deer and other wildlife- evaluate your dog’s bandwidth to create the best experience.

    Great large open field with tables, chairs, shade and a kiddie pool. Watch for the marsh at the far side of the field unless you want your dog smelly but great for bird watching. 100% would go back
