Nice quiet spot away from the house with a nice view of the woods. Not too far off the beaten path if you need something but still secluded.

Perfectly spaced trees for a movie screen ;) No paved road but easily accessible even with a pop-up Forest Valley

My friends and I had a great stay at Forest Valley! The campsite suits under s canopy of trees which should provide extra protection in case of rain. The door is clear and level with all the pre-cut firewood you could use.
-There is no fire ring provided, but the ground is mostly dirty, so no harm building your fire on the bare earth. I brought a portable fire pit.
-Bring a tarp to cover the firewood just in case
-There are acorns on the ground so take care to clear them before setting up your tent.
-Familiarize yourself with how to work the cassette toilet BEFORE you need to use it.
-To better forget you're in someone's backyard, turn your tents to face the woods.

Again, we had a blast, and I would absolutely visit again.

This, our 9th Hipcamp, was the best property we stayed at. Arriving during Ida, we found the place oddly without any puddles during and after inches of rain. Host Roger guided us to the spot and then left us to enjoy the wonder of his property as I'm sure he does. Woods, field(lawn) and quiet. It was perfect. Thank you Roger for sharing.

Best bonfire ever!

The site is lovely, a clearing in the woods at the edge of a large hill. The hot tub was fun, best for two people. But what a bonfire!! Worth a stay just for that! The only negative (and it's small) is that the owner's house is at the top of the hill, visible from the site. However, no rooms from the house look out over the hill so it is private.
