Charismatic, warm, and enchanting are just three words that describe the owners, John and Rhonda. These two delightful lovers have been soul mates for more than three decades. They married in 1990, melded a family of four children with a daughter of their own and now enjoy the perks of being grandparents.
They are both ageless, in as much as they interact with people of all ages. Their fun-loving nature gives them a natural youthfulness.
John's sense of humor and gentle teasing keeps guests smiling and on their toes. Rhonda compliments his personality with her caring and relaxed attitude.
John and Rhonda had a dream of taking the 120 acre family farm and turning it into a lifestyle oriented campground where their guests can enjoy the great outdoors, as well as one another. So, in 1999, the work began on clearing the land and building a lake. Throughout the campground there are various locations guests may find to simply view, use as a photo opportunity, or for their own imaginative pleasures.
The couple agrees that the countless hours spent creating this adult playground has been well worth the effort as they have made hundreds of friends who they now consider family.
Their organizational skills have shown through in all the events and parties that they host. Laughter and friendly chatter echo through the Pines every weekend throughout the season.
Come to the adult playground at Natural Pines and leave your stress just outside the gate!
