Drive deep into charming Pleasant Valley past large fields of thriving crops and lush pastures with grazing holsteins and sheep. We welcome you to experience our beautiful campsite which is nestled in the corner of our 120 acre dairy farm (and is fondly known to our family as “the Eck”, Pennsylvania Dutch for “the Corner”). You will enjoy the rich history of camping at the original Ashby’s Fort where a large stockade fort and gristmill once stood.
A wooded fire pit area with a picnic table and seating and a short walking trail that includes cleared spots perfect for tents makes this campsite suitable for large groups. The campsite is surrounded by open meadows and small creeks teeming with wildlife.
