This is a great quick spot for anyone looking to camp. Only 100 yards deep into the 75 acre property, you can pull a vehicle right up to your site. This spot is around a 20 minute drive from I-80. During that 20 minute drive you will pass a grocery store, a gas station, fine dining overlooking the Allegheny river (with a nice bar inside), a 6-pack shop, and a pizza shop!

This property includes views of the river, hiking trails, and a waterfall to check out. Well-tempered pets are always welcome. There are no homes on this property. Unlike many other HipCamp listings, you will not be camping in someone’s backyard.

For boaters, this site is an 8 minute drive from the Parker boat launch. To see additional reviews look up “75 acres with hiking and waterfall” as this is on the same property. This site is priced a bit lower because it’s a bit smaller and closer to the road but you still have access to the entire property.

Very nice spot to camp. It was very hot, and a dip in the waterfall pool was just what we needed. Chris was a great host. The firewood bundles were quite large and good for campfires. The nearby town of Foxburg was very interesting and we had a nice lunch there (good escape from the 90 degree weather). Will likely camp there again.

We stayed on at the Traveller’s site for a long weekend and had a great time exploring the property. Our 7 year old had so much fun splashing in the creek and walking upstream (the waterfall is absolutely beautiful). Even though the Traveller’s site is smaller and closest to the road, it was still very quiet and had nice shade coverage in the morning and late afternoon. It was also very peaceful to hear the sounds of the waterfall nearby. We walked the loop trail and the views at the top of the hill are breathtaking! The site was great because it feels very remote but is close enough to town where you can get the essentials. We made several trips to the Holy Sundae for ice cream :) Chris was a very kind and helpful host. The map and information on the property/area were cool to have and I liked learning the history. I look forward to staying here again!

Our family stayed three nights here and had a wonderful time! We were the only people on the property and it was so peaceful.

We were able to spend one day riding our bikes on the Allegheny River Trail. Note: as of June 2021 there is no trail connecting Foxburg to Emlenton, so don't start in Parker thinking you can ride all day. We learned that the hard way. If you want a long ride, start in Emlenton and ride upriver up to 27 miles.

We spent another day exploring the property (we even saw a porcupine!), including the creek, waterfall, and swimming hole. We even hiked down the creek to the Allegheny River. That hike was very challenging. We are experienced hikers, rock climbers, and outdoor enthusiasts, and we had to work to get down to the Allegheny safely. Fortunately, others in our party found another trail on the ridge that was much easier to travel for the trip back up from the river.

We explored the nearby towns of Parker, Foxburg, and Emlenton, and found the winery and the pizza place in Foxburg to our liking. Our kids enjoyed the cafe in Foxburg as well...they have ice cream.

This being western PA, we picked up a few ticks and mosquito bites and had regular spider visitors to our camp, but that goes with the territory. So, bring bug spray!

We were in the first site you see on the property and hope to stay on one of the other sites next time. Our site was just fine, but it did rain and the other sites seemed a bit more protected by trees.

All in all, we had a great time and plan to return at some point! If you are comfortable with off grid camping and packing in your own water, this is a great spot!

This was a wonderful campsite! Chris was extremely quick to respond when we had a bit of trouble finding the entrance. We had booked site 3 but he offered us the site at the top of the hill instead. Beautiful views, we enjoyed a hike to the waterfall and beyond, and went into Foxburg for a bike ride. Chris gave us information on nearby activities, and made sure we had everything we needed to enjoy the weekend. Exceptionally clean toilet as well! We will definitely return to this campsite.

We had a great time camping here. It was quite remote, and really quiet. Being able to hear the stream while we were drifting off to sleep was something special. The stars on our second night were really impressive. Chris was a gracious host and checked on us a couple of times to make sure we had what we needed. Thanks for the hospitality!

I finally found it! My perfect camping spot! It has everything I need (in order of importance to me)
1. Not much human noise. Being so close to 80 I thought you’d hear highway noise. Not at all. Only an occasional car on a nearby road. Blissful peace and quiet.
2. Privacy. He’s only got a couple of sites so not many people anyway. But the platform site was down an out of the way road.
3. Lots of trees. I love being nestled in the woods.
4. Clean porta potty.
Bonus!! Ended up going to see the waterfall on the property. There’s even a bridge and stairs so you could get down to it. (But it’s still pretty slippery on the path. Wear proper footwear.)

Misc notes: I have a 4WD suv and I was glad to have it. Used to camp with a Mazda 3. Don’t think the Mazda would have made it over some of the terrain without bottoming out. Also, from Pittsburgh my garmin took me on some serious dirt roads. Glad to have the higher ground clearance.
