Brenda was a great host and very accommodating. The sites were large, far apart and It felt like camping in the wilderness. My friend and I hammock camped and the trees on our site were perfect. There was plenty of wood on the forest floor to keep our fire going on both days.

Stayed at campsite #1 and my tent fit perfectly on top of the platform. None of the other campsites were booked and the area has great privacy and was perfect for what I needed. Brenda was very kind and gave me a ride on her golfcart showing the trails and helping me decide about driving my car down the trails. My mazda fit and made it just fine. Great spot

Brenda was very helpful and responsive. The campsite was beautiful and felt very peaceful and secluded, despite being only a short walk from Brenda's house and the other campsites. As inexperienced campers, we felt very secure and this spot had everything we were looking for. I would definitely recommend camping here!

We proceeded to have a great time while camping! I would Highly recommend this campsite!

We had a lovely time! Brenda was a very gracious host, the campsite was lovely. We had no trouble driving around the property and spent a peaceful night in the forest.

We planned a last minute camp out this past weekend and it was perfect. Brenda was great. She allowed us to choose our site once we arrived as we were the only guests that weekend. We stayed at camp 3 which is by far , the best site . It is situated in the woods and on the edge of a farmer’s field. The sites are quite spacious. Fortunately we were able to drive our car in but that may be difficult for larger vehicles. Brenda will provide a shuttle service in her buggy if you can’t make it back there. The sites are set back quite a way from her home so it truly feels like you are in the middle of nature. I would definitely camp here again.

Jennifer, you, Tyler and your doggies Arthur and Karma are welcome back anytime. So well behaved animals which didn't scare the horses. Love to see campers such as yourselves enjoying nature. I'm so glad the "other" campground was booked and you were able to find Deer Forest Hideaway. Come back again and I'll show you some closer hikes for your furry friends - not even 3 miles from here and so beautiful this time of the year. Enjoy your camping!!

Brenda was a great host! She was very welcoming - helped us bring all of our stuff to the site and lent us a tarp for the rain storm! Her property is quite large, so each site seems very private. A beautiful property, with nature and wildlife all around you! Thank you, Brenda for a great weekend get away!

So glad you pick our woods to relax before you head back to classes. The local winery was calling to you to come back and take the tour on Monday with your engineering friends from Lehigh. So glad they found and liked our place too. Thanks for the review and hopefully more graduate students will enjoy our woods as much as you did!!

Brenda was an awesome host! Id most most definitely stay here again. Its very private and peaceful. My fiance and I really enjoyed our stay.We wanted a little get away before the school year started since I work as a teacher.

We stayed at campsite 1 which has a platform for your tent,it saved us from the rain.I was able to drive to the camp site through the trails in my CRV and was able to get out when we wanted to go to the beach for the day.

Checked out with Brenda and talked about life and our stay. Again,this place was just what we needed for a weekend get away!

Lindsey and her fiance were so pleasant to have stayed here. Thanks for posting the pics of the cover for your tent- so glad you had it during the downpour!! The trails are marked so you don’t get lost, even in the dark. Hope your art classes go well this year and come back whenever!!

Brenda was a great host! Super sweet and her family seem really nice! Her property is large and you will have enough space for campers near you. Their were ticks we found because it is a heavily wooded area so cover up! but no matter that we still had a good time. The fire pit on our site was perfect and we enjoyed the peace and quiet. We took some photos a little next to the cornfield during sunset and it was amazing. You will need 4WD to get to your campsite as well!

Thanks so much for coming to Deer Forest Hideaway and you enjoyed yourselves!! Thanks for the private suggestions and I'll do my best to implement some of them. I hope to attract more campers who enjoy the natural setting - not necessarily the ticks. They have been so plentiful this year - I guess due to the mild winter and the abnormal rainfall we've had in the spring. Oh well, such is nature. Sometimes I wonder how did our ancestors survive?
