Spend a night in the "Eagle's" group area at Holiday Hill Day Camp. During the summer weeks, these 2 12x16' Adirondack style lean-tos house our teen leadership program. But when they're not in use, they offer a beautiful spot to spend the night outdoors, with a commanding view of our manicured grounds and access to a wealth of outdoor recreation. The site includes both lean-tos, 2 picnic tables and fire ring. There is ample flat space on the ground, or pitch your tent on the deck in a lean-to for shade or shelter from the wind.

Guests are welcome to use our outdoor athletic facilities and playgrounds. Daily swimming pool memberships are available in-season. Just across the street, Mansfield Hollow State Park offers a variety of hiking, biking, running, paddling and picnicking opportunities within a few minutes drive. Also only 5 minutes up the road is the UConn main campus, with arts, entertainment, dining, exploration and the renowned UConn Dairy Bar ice-cream stop.

Since we are a functioning 23-acre summer day camp and event facility, you might expect to share the property with an outdoor gathering, wedding, or group lodging in our Farmhouse rental on the property. If that's the case we'll contact you at the time of your booking and let you know what to expect. The owners live on site, you may see them driving on the road below. We're also in the process of developing 2 other Hipcamp spots on the property, all located to provide a wide buffer of privacy.

Great spot to spend the night. Lean-Tos keep you out of the elements, and enough wood is provided to keep a fire going all night. Great experience!

Very pleasant! Host had everything set up nicely with good instructions and map. Enjoyed the campfire with provided wood, the view of the stars and hiking in nearby state park. Thanks, would definitely return!

We really enjoyed our stay at this campsite. In the summer it is a kids camp and they host other events, so there's tons of space here. We camped here in early November on chilly night but the shelter came stocked with plenty of firewood. Setting up camp in the shelter made for a cozy campsite. This campsite is on top a hill giving you a really beautiful sunrise view! 10 out of 10 would stay again!

This was our second time staying at the Lean-Tos on the Hill and we have loved it both times. The weather was more cooperative this year and let us really enjoy the camp grounds. Lots of firewood provided by the host, great space, and lots of privacy.

Easy directions, clean campsite, lots of great amenities at a very reasonable price. We were able to pitch a tent no problem in the lean-to using the spaces between the slats for posts. Close access from campsite to parking area.

It’s a charming little spot. There are two lean-tos and we pitched our tent under one for added shelter. We didn’t spend much time there otherwise but it was cool to take a look around at the camp driving to and from.
