  • At check-in, you will be asked to verify the number of guests staying at your site.  
  • A limit of 6 or 8 people per site (depending on site type) will be enforced.  That total number includes both the number of people on your reservation and any day visitors.  If you have the maximum number of people on your reservation, day visitors are not allowed.
  • RV and Tent sites are limited to 6 people per site.
  • Camping Cabins, Deluxe Cabins, and other Lodging are limited to 6 people with exception of the Deluxe Cabins which sleep 8, these are limited to 8 people.  

If the number of overnight guests on your reservation allows for day visitors, those day visitors must check in at the front desk upon arrival. Your visitors are welcome for $10 per additional adult. Visiting guests are permitted until Quiet Hours and must adhere to campground rules. Should day visitors turn into overnight guests, they must register at the front desk.

Meet Your Hosts

Jenni Edwards

I am looking forward to welcoming you & your family to our hidden gem campground!

About 8 years ago, Jenni took a road trip from Florida to Oregon with her dogs to visit family and stayed in KOA Camping Cabins along the way. Jenni enjoyed it so much that she went home, sold almost everything she owned. With no experience, she hit the road as a solo-woman RVer.  People in RV parks and campgrounds helped and taught her useful things as she zigzagged back forth across the country through 47 states in everything from a little tagalong, to a beast
of a fifth wheel, to a 40' class A then a Class C (many more than once).  

Jenni has managed both the Murphy/Peace Valley KOA in North Carolina and Southern Leisure RV Resort in Florida.Jenni has written a published book, Bumping Down Highways, From Board Rooms to Backroads. It is her story of leaving corporate America in search of something more. Jenni's travel companion is a little rough coat Jack Russel, Emmi, who has been in the passenger seat for all of her adventures. She thinks every camper is coming to visit her. Jenni loves to travel, spend time with her children, her grandchildren and the many friends she has made throughout her journey in life.  Jenni also enjoys spending her time volunteering, decorating beautiful cakes, gardening and campfires.
