                                                About This Site

   This carry-in/tote-in tent site sets on our small, spring fed trout pond. There is a 9'X9' tent platform, picnic table, 12'x 15' screen tent and fire ring. Room for additional tents. 

   This remote carry-in site gives the feel of deep wilderness backpacking just 400 feet from your vehicle. The path is somewhat on the steep side so use our heavy duty gear-cart/wagon to tote your gear in.

 When possible, we will tote your gear with our ATV shuttle.

There is a toilet tent with flushing portable toilet and a secure bear enclosure for your food and coolers.

Catch and release trout fishing is free for children under 16 yrs, with adult supervision. Trout feeding is encouraged. Trout pellets are available near the firewood bundles.

                                               About The Area

    Camp North is located directly on the "North Country ATV Trail System", the "Stratford Nighthawks Snowmobile Club Trail System", AND, the "Ride The Wilds" trail system. Access over 1000 miles of ATV trails right from camp. There are many fantastic lake, river and mountain vista destinations within half day round trips from Camp North.

     Just down the road, on the Connecticut River is a "Connecticut River Paddlers Club", canoe/kayak launch, at the "Maidstone Bridge". (with sign in box). Half day and whole day trips are available. You can put in up river and do half day or whole day river trips back to Maidstone Bridge OR put in at Maidstone Bridge and paddle south. NOTE: this section of river is the only primitive section of the entire Connecticut rivers length. Most years, including this year, there is an active Osprey nest atop the Maidstone Bridge. (we can help with shuttle service)

     There are many trout fishing opportunities in local lakes, ponds, streams and rivers. We have a small private trout pond where kids can feed our brook trout and do "catch and release" fishing. There is a rec room with pool table and music system at the host's office, for campers use.

The tent site was quiet and peaceful. I’d say we were lucky no one had booked the other campsite as they are very close and we would have likely been bothering each other for the nights. Aside from nearness to the other site, Louis was very kind and welcoming. He greeted me and my dog, and welcomed us into the rec area. My friends checked it out, but we kept outside due to the gorgeous weather and desire for campfires. The ports potty was clean, with clear directions on how to use. Close to nice hikes and diners, very good location for getting off the grid and one with nature!
