A safe place close to I-80
I stayed here overnight while driving cross-country. As a female traveling alone, I needed a safe place to sleep, and Bill’s place was perfect. Bill was caring, kind and thoughtful, and I felt very safe there.

Peaceful night’s sleep
This was such a nice & easy stop as we made our way back west. We loved falling asleep among the trees to the sound of cicadas, and Bill was a very friendly and welcoming host; we made the reservation day-of and got in at dark, and he came out to say hello and help us find where to set up our tent. It’s a lovely spot to spend the night- thanks for sharing your space with us, Bill!

This is the fourth time I've stayed on Bill's property. It is perfectly secluded, and Bill is the perfect host.

Just as advertised Bill’s property was secluded and quiet. About 10 minutes off I-80, I was able to easily find the property and had a great nights rest. Super affordable for an awesome site and Bill was very friendly. Would definitely recommend!

Toes in the grass!
This place is amazing. I pulled in with 3 kids and our small dog for the night and was greeted with smiles, a firepit, firewood, and firefly catchers for the kids. Loved walking around with my toes in the fresh grass with my kids and side kick Aussie! THANK YOU

Starry Nights
Bill was very friendly and welcoming! We had campsite 7 which was really good for privacy. nice mowed grass to put your tent on. We enjoyed our nights there and was able to look at the stars while sleeping in our tent.

Great place to stay! Highly recomme
Beautiful property, quiet and secluded. We loved our stay, Bill was fantastic and brought us one of the coolest homemade fire pits I've seen. The fireflies were crazy even on a cool night. Would definitely stay here again.

A Pristine Place to Stay
Extremely nice place to stay with power if you need it, springwater if you’d like it and if you’re able to Boondock there’s some fabulous sites as well. Easy access off the highway, Bill was very gracious and walked us around the property letting a spec which site we preferred. We will definitely return.

I go in my minivan and had a great experience at Bill and Nancy's. I was close to so many great places to kayak. I hope to return soon.

I had a most pleasant stay at Bill’s in Mercer. Bill met me on arrival, was very friendly, and although I had signed up for another site, he had availability and recommended a site he thought I might enjoy more. I was tenting and the site he suggested was perfect. The fireflies in late June were spectacular, and the site was private and very quiet. Great birds too. I highly recommend!

Beautiful landscaped natural place. Private and quiet. Host, Bill, accommodated us on same day when plans to go elsewhere changed suddenly. No toilet or outhouse; this was simple camping.

Patch of tranquility
We had no intention of stopping in Mercer, PA, but wow, so glad the snow changed our plans. Enjoyed our time in the beautiful, quiet setting of Bill & Nancys ‘patch of tranquillity.’ We watched a fox saunter across the field, hiked a path Bill plowed for us on their expansive property, (He took being accommodating to a whole different level.) and even had our hosts join us for lunch. If you’re lucky enough to get a spot for the night at the Snyders’, then...you are lucky enough! Enjoy your visit as I am sure Mercer will forever have a special place in your heart too.

Stayed with Bill overnight as we were driving through. Bill met us at the end of his drive, took us back to our site and made sure we were set for the night. He was very kind and his space is peaceful/safe.

This is my third or fourth time coming here. It is always a place of unwinding and relaxing. It is a great place to have a peaceful night. The host is great and very responsive. Coming back soon!

Perfect spot off I 80
Easy and quick to from I 80 in Pennsylvania Amish country. Bills property is set off the road down a winding driveway. Feels like your in a pristine country hollow. Bill is a great host. Took the time to meet and greet us. Even though we didn't get there till dusk. Would make a great spot for a large family gathering. Highly recommend. Definitely would stay again when in the area.

A serene refuge off I-80
I had a wonderful night staying here at lot #7. Bill made me feel very welcome, and the property was peaceful and spacious. You can see the stars, listen to wildlife at night and wake up to deers. It’s a short stop off I-80 as well, which is a huge plus for road trips!

Bill and Nancy are excellent hosts. They offer assistance when we ran into mechanical problems. It is a beautiful homestead with curious chickens to entertain.

Wonderful spot for a quiet evening!
We had a great time. Bill helped us get setup and brought a fire pit and wood. He even showed our kids how to feed the chickens. We had a great evening and a relaxed morning leaving. Around 9:30 in the morning a nearby skeet shooting club opened, but the sound was muffled and not a problem.
