We loved our stay at Wicklow Woods. Barb and Bruce were great hosts and very responsive. The property is beautiful. It had a lovely firepit, beautiful trees, and neat nature trails to explore (with lots of cool mushrooms!). My parter and I would definitely go back!

Serene and magical

Yes, what other people have said is true... this is a magical site, the lighting that dapples through the trees makes for a beautiful, serene setting. Hikes that meander through the forest offer up lovely delights, wild mushrooms, creeks, and little bridges. Perfect for one or two tents, fire pit is great, and Barb is a wonderful host. We will return for sure.

In one word, this site is MAGICAL. My husband and I camped for 3 nights over a long weekend and enjoyed every single minute. Beautiful and peaceful campsite with fantastic trails all around. The outhouse was such a nice touch too as it was just lovely. Barb and Bruce were such wonderful hosts and brought us a few delicious tomatoes. Close to the beach too, as well as all conveniences a short drive away should you need anything. We are already trying to plan our next visit! Don’t pass this campsite up.

Enchanted spot nestled in the woods

Wicklow Woods is a great camp site! As you meander through the short dirt road you approach the site which is fair sized and nestled within the pines and cedars. The view is fully wooded and offers an enchanted feeling. It is nicely sheltered from the sun, with just enough dappled shade throughout the day to warm it comfortably. The outhouse was clean and close to the site but not too close! Barb and Bruce were welcoming and helpful. Bruce showed us to the site and offered to help us with maneuvering our small RV into the spot. They also checked in with us on check out morning to see how we were getting along and offered us to take a bit more time getting ready to go. We will certainly be back!

It was the perfect and peaceful getaway and we will definitely be back again. Enchanted woods for the romantic or the outdoorsman can venture deeper on trails into the thick. This new site which opened in July, has clean tables, garbage and toilet facilities with ample firewood for the pit. Thank you Barbara for the hospitality and helpful ideas of local areas to explore.

I highly recommend this amazing piece of heaven for a perfect getaway to recharge and unwind on your own , or with your dear ones. The best advantage of this place is that you get the whole woods to yourself and it gives you maximum privacy one could ever imagine. It was such a tranquil atmosphere with the best affordable rate and we got the best guest service. Bruce and Barbara were very friendly and welcoming and did whatever they could to make our stay the best. And guess what? We have already planned to go back to this paradise again. Thank you Bruce and Barbara for being such a wonderful host. We will definitely be back again.
