SPRING IS HERE!!!!! We are a small nonprofit spiritual sanctuary located just outside of Princeton. Our mission is to enrich our community, provide a place for gathering, for expression for healing, and encourage a more local and sustainable lifestyle.  We have regular services and events and are thrilled to share our home and space with you through this service!

Privacy, tranquility, nature. We have a brook, a dam, woods and fields. We’re located only 10 minutes outside Princeton. On one side of the brook we have 2 sites, one a very large tent site with a huge stone fire circle and one vehicle accessible.  Over the brook we have 3 more tent campsites, all offering amazing views of the property.   Several great blue heron make their home here as well as red tailed hawk, ducks and all manner of fauna.  We raise ducks and chickens and rabbits and have eggs available all year.  We are thrilled to be able to share our space with the community in exchange for donation and use these funds to further our goals and support our continued existence.

Third time here! Really convenient from Central Jersey and the host is very accommodating.

We showed up in the rain and mud expecting the temperature to drop and the ground to freeze solid, which it did. Had a great time in front of the fire the entire weekend.

Stayed at site 6, which is a further walk in from where you can park but very quiet and a great trade off in my mind. Nice clean site, awesome sound from the stream lulling me to sleep each night. Also a quick drive into Princeton, which was great.

Had a nice getaway out of the city. Some campsite spots were more private than others, but overall still more quiet and private than staying at your typical camp ground. Nick was super nice and the property was beautiful. Saw and heard a lot of wild life. Deer, fox, blue jays, frogs, geese. It was cicada season so they were all over the place! But they didn’t really bother us and nothing you can do about that. Overall it was nice and relaxing!

Had fun but wouldn’t go again

Overall our group had a fun time although there were some things that made our trip less than ideal. We had site #1 booked but the morning of our trip when we were about to leave, the host messaged us that he had to move us to a different site because an RV would be staying at site #1 for the weekend. I said I guess that would be okay as long as we had some space to ourselves and as long as no other dogs would be too close to our site. He assured us that we would have plenty of space and no other dogs would be staying there that weekend. When we arrived, the lady was confused as to where we were supposed to be staying. She put us at the nicest site and then came back 15 minutes later to say we had to move to a different site. She did this 2 more times. We finally put our tents up and started to relax. A bigger group came and took the nicer site next to us. Then the RV rolled up and we felt a little cramped for space right between the 2 groups. I was surprised when I saw 2 big, loud dogs hop out of the RV next to us because the host assured us there wouldn’t be any other dogs. The bigger group to the other side had a dog as well. The 2 big dogs from the RV would not stop barking while we were there. They were very aggressive. This was a bit annoying since the host assured us there wouldn’t be any other dogs. We tried to cope with that as well as we could but it was a bit rough. Later that night we kept finding ticks on us. A lot of ticks. I’ve never seen so many in my life. We had to pull more than 10 ticks off of our dog which was very concerning. We found many ticks on our legs too. The big group next to us actually went out to buy a basic lawn mower to mow their area because they said there were a ton of ticks near them as well. Overall we made the best of our time there but wouldn’t go back.

I’m sorry you had that experience kevin, I found myself stuck away for over two weeks with an unexpected medical emergency, and in that time the grass grew rapidly as it does this time of year. As for the rv, if there was an unintended overlap of dogs, I can only apologize and mention again that I was stuck out of town with a medical emergency and may not have been as on top of things as usual.

We stayed at the campsite beside the dam and the sound of the flowing water helped us drift to sleep with ease. We cooked on the firepit with frying pans that we brought, and had access to the hose by the cabin if we needed more water. The host Nick is very nice and just a phone call away if you need anything. It is a beautiful property and I highly recommend this place to anyone looking to camp in NJ.
