Daniel provided excellent directions, including a map of hiking trails accessible from the campsite. The site itself was very pretty, level, and well kept up. It was a ways back from the house, and tucked into some trees, so fairly secluded. I recommend the hike down to the river. I was on a birding trip, and saw some good birds (including a scarlet tanager) both on the property and in the woods. The posted signs made everything easy to find. Drinking water is available from an outdoor faucet, and there’s an outlet nearby for charging phones, etc.
Lyme positive ticks and black bears
The property is nice and has a good home like feeling but there is Lyme positive ticks on the land. I was bitten by one and luckilly discovered it right away. I feel I need to share this and hopefully prevent anyone else from recieving what can be a detrimental disease with terrifying side effects that may not be caught as quickly as I was able to. Also upon leaving a black bear walked down the same path used to get up and down the site and was very aware of my presence. These are real dangers in the woods but not ones that I was prepared to encounter and threw me for quite a loop. There are also no bathrooms so be prepared to dig a hole or drive to the nearest gas station (about 10 mins.)The owners are nice enough but anyone coming here should be prepared for the natural occurances. This is a high Lyme positive (red zone) area in Connecticut surrounded by lots of woods.
