I added this site to accomodate people with trailers but it is fine for tent camping, but best for only 2-3 people. It's a work in progress. You can pull in and park on a ridge overlooking the large pond, it's a nice view. There is a sturdy 70s era patio table and 4 comfortable chairs and a fire ring. That's it. It's pretty much wild, unmanicured woods, a view of the pond and there is a barn (not an aesthetically appealing one) across the clearing.  No electric or water. You can fill up (water) at my friend's house near by if you have a trailer.  Please, no children under 10, deep water and steep sides on pond.  I have a porta potty on site, half way between the camps but not visible from either camp. I have to raise my price to justify the extra cost but people were not honoring the pack it out rule. There are about 45 acres of woods with a creek,  and roads to walk.

We only got to stay 1 night on this beautiful property but our host Michelle was very responsive and the property was serene and peaceful. My dogs loved exploring and we enjoyed the beautiful ponds. The fire pit was perfect for a chilly evening and We would definitely stay here again!

The Above the Pond campsite was serene and private, perfect for a relaxing couples weekend. The water really is that color 🤩, beautiful! Michele was very accommodating with our last minute booking, was very helpful getting us set up when we arrived, and even saved us a trip for firewood with some to purchase on-site. Would recommend!

We LOVED visiting Michele’s property! The pond is gorgeous and our campsite felt very private. Completely relaxing, easy getting in and out with our 23” vanterra. Michele was super friendly and accommodating, and we hope to go back soon!
