Despite the well-written directions, Magicity was in his golf cart waiting for us in town. We followed him a short distance to a sizeable open area surrounded by a thick cover of trees on his property. He told us that we could park anywhere that the native grasses were mowed, which offered us many choices. Later he came back to check on us & showed me his lakefront via a brief golf cart ride. His lakefront was available for us to use as well as the mowed trails through the grasses and adjoining wooded trails. Our visit was quite pleasant and is definitely Mooch (out cat) approved. This is a magical place! Would like to visit again.
This was one of our nicest Boondockers Welcome stays. Magicity was very responsive to our texts and met us just outside of town in his golf cart to guide us to his property. We stayed in a beautiful meadow and enjoyed serene walks on the many trails through his woods. We also enjoyed the half mile walk into town and learning about the history of Colon, Magic Capital of the World. Would definitely like to return if we are ever in the area again!
Our host met us as we drove into Colon, I got in his car and he drove me to 3 separate places I could choose from to stay the night, we chose a 50 acre meadow that had walking paths cut through the woods. I would definitely stay here again.
There was a little confusion when I first arrived at the address provided. Problem was my cell txt msg and call didn't get through to Magicity even though he was waiting for me. So be sure you connect as you arrive because the address provided is the meeting point. Just pull over to the side of the road and he'll guide you the rest of the way. It's a big beautiful property with upper and lower parking areas. Field, forest, deer and lake. Nearby Colon has a recreational trail & boat launch plus a small but cute downtown. Magicity gave me a quick tour of the property...really friendly. Great views and quiet night. Highly recommended.
