It was a little hard but find the house. I would suggest a sign. However it was a nice stay and I felt very secluded.

We absolutely loved camping at Rick and Theresa’s property. It not only had stunning views, but was a joy to explore and very private. We took the canoe out on the pond, met the goats on the farm and enjoyed a beautiful sunset. The blueberry jam and farm fresh eggs was also definitely worth the add on. We hope to be back!

Great location, tucked away but easy to get to Dryden, Ithaca, Treman State Park, etc. The site was secluded and we loved being right on the pond. Rick was a gracious host, readily available if needed and otherwise inconspicuous. The composting toilet was clean and easy to get to. There are a couple sites at Underhill, but they're well situated so you don't feel at all crowded. I think this may be our regular FLX spot!

This camp was a very peaceful and serene spot for my family and I to camp! Beautiful location that is near many hiking spots. Rick was a great and understanding host who was very responsive to any questions we had. Will definitely return in the future!

The campsite was secluded by a grove of pine trees, offering both shade and privacy. The site had a fire pit made from stones and a large wooden picnic table with a composting outhouse nearby. We could hear the goats and sheep as well as bullfrogs into the night, but not so loud that it interrupted our sleep. Canoes were available to explore the large pond in a few places. I saw a rooster but we didn’t hear it at 4 am. We had a great stay with a beautiful view of a starry sky outside of city lights.

We also found a state park nearby with a large lake and plan to explore that as well on future trips.

A lovely and secluded campsite between a blueberry field and a pond. Also friendly sheep in the vicinity.
