The vibe at Meadow's Edge @ The Forest Garden
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
The Mickelberry Forest Gardens is a great place to camp near Newtown, Connecticut. Bill And Amy were friendly and gracious hosts, making sure we knew where everything was and suggesting activities that we could do in the area. They even accommodated our last minute request for farm fresh eggs that they sell, which were delicious.
The property contains two sites, and we were lucky enough to have the option to stay at either. The sites are beautifully kept and well stocked with fire wood, tinder, and places to sit. The property itself is quite large and has stunning views of the rolling hills/mountains covered with thick forest. You'll also find on the property a chicken coop, a lovely pond, an equestrian jumping fence (to practice our high jump of course), and a tree swing that overlooks the whole property.
Overall this site was great, We would definitely stay here again. Thanks for having us!
I cannot express how grateful I am for Bill and Amy. This was Charlie and my first Hipcamp experience and we LOVED it. From the peaceful farm meadow to the constant company of butterflies and kitties, it was such a magical anniversary. Bill and Amy were so sweet and accommodating. And the location was perfect; just a five minute drive from stunning hiking trails! We would absolutely go back and definitely recommend this location to future campers.
