Harpy Hollow is located on 89 beautiful wooded acres near Watkins Glen, NY.  Come unplug and enjoy an abundance of wildlife, on-site trails and stargazing. We are located in the Finger Lakes Region with all the wine you can taste! While here you should visit all the waterfall trails you can! The Watkins Glen Gorge Trail is our favorite! The Finger Lakes Trail (FLT) is walking distance from "The Hollow" and so is a natural spring. There are horseback riding and ATV trails in the area. Bring or rent a kayak to paddle any of the several large nearby lakes! Plenty of fishing in the area too! There is a modern outhouse with flushing toilet and sink with running water a reasonable walking distance from each site. A private potty in a potty tent on your site is available to rent. Sorry, no shower yet! Every site has a fire ring and comes with first bundle of wood. Additional bundles are available on site for purchase. Owned by Army Veterans who love the outdoors and live on site in an off grid cabin. If you are looking for a place to unplug, this is the place for you!  Learn more about this land: Beautiful site that is spacious, wooded and quite with no light pollution for amazing stargazing! Includes firepit.  Bathroom is a short walk from the site.  You may park at site (all wheel or 4 wheel drive necessary under some conditions). May need to walk in if very wet or snowy.

Danielle was very hospitable and helpful. The setting was private and wooded. I have a pop-up camper on my truck and it was level so we were comfortable

Beautiful site and perfectly located! Quiet and the best combination of having a lot of space but also being easily accessible from the road. We didn’t even have to drive anywhere to hike because it’s right along the Finger Lakes trail! Danielle even provided printed out maps for us and gave recommendations. Thank you Danielle and we look forward to camping with you again!

Danielle has a great setup with tent camping areas and glamping areas. We stayed in a tent side, and it was spacious and seemed private. There is a bathroom a short walk away with a sink and composting toilet. We enjoyed our stay here!

A very nice quiet spot! Site 3 is very mossy, lots of pines, dark and quiet. A quick walk from the road, or vehicle access if you have a truck or jeep. Lots of firewood around. Mostly pine, and a little damp, at least when we were there. Super pleasant and exactly what we needed for a weekend stay!

Tent camping
Harpy Hollow was a perfect stay, super close to all the national parks/Forrest’s. It was very spacious and private! I loved that we could let our dog roam around freely since we weren’t close to anyone. They even brought our fire wood down to our site for us and were very friendly. Would highly recommend!

Peaceful, Beautiful Camping
We absolutely loved our private and secluded campsite at Danielle’s! We were completely surrounded by such beautiful nature the entire time while staying at Harpy Hollow. Danielle is so nice and we were grateful to have had such an amazing host! Her campsites are very close to hiking, biking, kayaking, swimming, restaurants, and so much more- yet at the same time are remote enough so you get the true camping experience. So peaceful and so much fun, we will definitely be coming back!

Camping in beautiful old forest
Beautiful wooded campsites, very remote setting yet only a five mile drive to nearest convenience store, great host, very welcoming environment. My boyfriend, my dog hope and i had the time of our lives sleeping under the stars.

Great location. Quiet, secluded, safe site, but close to everything to explore. Danielle is a great resource on where to go, and what to do. Could t ask for a better spot.

Great spot, especially with kids!
We had such a great experience! Danielle’s spot is such a perfect location for both a sense of being secluded, but also the convenience of the very nice outhouse, trails to explore, and a tether ball that my kids loved! This was a first time camping experience for both me and my kids and we will definitely return. Eagle Cliff Falls is about 12 minutes away and it’s about 20 minutes to the center of Watkins Glen. Danielle couldn’t have been nicer and my daughter loved meeting her dogs.

Deep Forest Getaway
Our site was easily accessible, as we could drive out car right up to it. The fire pit was in great condition and there was plenty of seating including a picnic table. The property is tucked away in the Texas Hollow State Forest, so it's very remote and free of cell phone reception, so you can really unplug and get away. Danielle was very welcoming and interesting to talk to. The bathroom was clean and nice to have. Would highly recommend any of the many sites that Danielle has on the property.

Perfect remote wooded site
Absolutely great spot at Danielle’s Harpy Hollow campground. Stayed over 4th of July weekend for 2 nights. The spot we reserved had not been used by a truck camper before, but Danielle made sure that branches were cleared and we had ample room to make it back. The site was very remote and nicely shaded! Highly recommended for a tent or a nimble truck camper like us. Turnaround at the site was a bit tight so a trailer would not fit. Definitely would go back, thanks Danielle!

Awesome stay at Danielle's tent site! As soon as we arrived, she personally greeted us & gave us the "lay of the land"! The site is really private & completely secluded from her home and the other tent site. Really felt like your own private oasis in the middle of the forest with clear views of all the stars!

Danielle was the kindest, most accommodating host. It was so nice to stay somewhere where someone had so much love for the land they inhabit. Her love of the area is evident. She gave great recommendations for nearby activities and was so kind our entire stay. We will definitely be back. So much better than a bigger campground.

Awesome time
Danielle was such a nice host! We arrived very late on the first night of our stay due to our work schedule and commute; she was so gracious enough to stay up to make sure we found the spot and also to make sure we did not get stuck in the mud. The site was very well kept and had benches around the fire ring, along with a picnic table, which was super nice. We also requested firewood, which was all arranged at the site for us. We only had an issue with the wood being damp, so it didn’t burn well, but we would rate our stay 10/10 and would definitely recommend to anyone else.

A-maaa-zingggg upstate getaway!! 😍
We had an awesome time in our private wooded tent site at Harpy Hollow. The site was huge with plenty of room for our dog to roam and still had a very private and primitive feel. Very nice and clean bathroom! Our host, Danielle, was so laid back and accommodating and genuine good company. Our hiking plans were rained out accompanied by bonus tornado warnings 🤣 but Danielle went above and beyond to help ensure we were warm and dry by helping us fix our easy up after the rain collapsed it and offering dry wood and warm apple cider. Hands down, a very enthusiastic 10/10! What could have been a bummer of a weekend due to weather, still turned out to be a super great time due to the hospitality of Danielle and friend who helps with the property. Will be back soon to conquer all the hikes/waterfalls we had planned and we can’t wait to come back to visit and see all the progress made with all the big plans they have in store for future development of the grounds. Highly recommend! 💯 👏🏻 🏕 🔥🐕 🥾 🐾 🙌🏻 🍁 ⛰.

Lovely spot in upstate New York, very secluded and away from the town. Down a nice dirt road off the beaten path, no street or house lights so it’s pitch black at night, that makes it very nice. You really do feel like your out in the woods. The host was very kind and considerate, offering firewood whenever needed. The host was also very knowledgeable and has a great deal of experience. We are excited to camp here again, I would recommend it to anyone!

A great time!
Danielle and Denise were great hosts! Because of all the rain, I did get my camper van temporarily stuck, but Danielle pulled me out and I got to “higher ground” with no problem. I thoroughly enjoyed the women’s camping experience that was scheduled for the time I was there, and loved visiting Havana Glen with everyone. They even fed us breakfast the last morning there.

Ideal spot for Lake Seneca!
We took our 13' off road camper to this spot with our 2 Harley Davidson Motorcycles and it was perfect for our weekend away! The area is spacious and heavily wooded. You don't even feel like you are on someone's property. The road traffic is rare, I think we saw 10 cars over 3 days, which is ideal for us! We are rugged campers so we always bring our own water, bathroom, and power, I would recommend the same for anyone else staying at this spot. It was a gorgeous easy drive to Lake Seneca and the surrounding area. We had a blast and would recommend this spot to anyone looking for a private camping spot!

Danielle’s place is perfect for a weekend escape. The sites are secluded and quiet, but not far from hiking, kayaking, restaurants, etc. The surroundings are just beautiful!! Danielle is very helpful and pleasant to talk to. I would definitely love to stay here again.
