Don't remember saying anything about free. If someone travled some distance, we would feel pretty bad about charging and leave it to donation if they wanted to. The KEY here is, NO ONE TO DATE has camped at our place other than 2 guys stayed a few days here. A camper would be camping and to date, we have never had a camper stay, not even a local one. Basically no one really knows what we do here other than a little fishing.
