over the moon!
The views were absolutely beautiful! The moon hangs right over the campsite and everything is provided for you minus food and a tent. There’s so much open space and it felt really nice to unplug from the city, thank you for the stay and we look forward to staying here again.

Halloween camping weekend
This was possibly one of my favorite places to camp. Everyone loved how secluded it was yet still close to everything. We felt like we were in the mountains out West and not the Poconos. Mark really made this an easy trip with supplying all the firewood, water, chairs, hammocks, wagon and wheelbarrow. We had to make 3 trips up, but it was totally worth it with those views. We timed the hike up to the campsite at 7 minutes. It was a little rocky and up hill, but totally doable. We will definitely stay here another weekend just when its a tad warmer.

Mountain retreat
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this relaxed and very private campsite that was thoughtfully provisioned with plenty of fresh, cold water, ample firewood, extra tarps, Adirondack chairs, etc. Provided instructions were very thorough and the host was responsive so everything went smoothly. The constant swoosh of traffic noise from the road below was the only intrusion so earplugs are recommended for sleeping if this might be an issue for you. We would definitely return to this very special spot!

The views were wonderful! Getting up to the site was definitely more strenuous and uphill than anticipated, pack only essentials and be in shape! Plenty of wood and water provided, the one container had some mold on the cap so I would still recommend bringing your own drinking water. Loved the privacy and set up and all the trails.

Amazing secluded campsite on breathtaking property. Amenities were wonderful, had everything we needed. Definitely follow the advice of packing light since it’s a bit of a hike to the campsite, but the provided wagons were really helpful for heavier items.

Perfect weekend camp trip
Loved our time camping at this site. Saw no other people the entire weekend. Mark provided firewood and water, as well as carts to lug your belongings to the campsite. It is about an 8-10 min walk from where you park your car, but the views are worth it. Our dogs loved running around all weekend. The stars were stunning at night.

The campsite is beautiful and the included amenities (picnic tables, chairs, water, fire pit, etc.) are helpful. Unfortunately you can hear some traffic noise from the road below, though it’s not constant.

Beautiful site with stunning views
We love this site. It’s beautiful, secluded, and gorgeous scenery. It’s a bit of a hike up to the site but it is so worth it. We have come here a few times and have loved each and everyone. Would definitely recommend to anyone!!!

This was our second visit, had a great time again. The walk from the car to the campsite is long and steep if you’re hauling heavier items, but good exercise (and we were very grateful for the provided wagon). Beautiful views, truly private and we would definitely visit in the future.

Hot stay in July went well!
Ample picnic tables for cooking and stationing. Four post tent to shield from the hot sun helped along with the extra water Mark left for us. There’s a little spring fed creek to sit in with very cold water if it gets too hot. In addition, there are extra tarps to shield from the sun if needed. Wildlife check list: Gold Finches Very noisy Cooper’s hawk fledgling Turkeys(heard but not seen) Toads Turkey vultures Mourning doves Eastern Kingbird Woodthrush Mockingbird Thanks again, Mark!

Up on that ridge
We love this site. Watching a storm come down the valley up on the ridge is remarkable. Plenty of firewood provided and water.

A great getaway!
This was the perfect little retreat for my son and I. Everything was as expected and more. The picnic tables, canopy, and hammocks were unexpected surprises and were definite bonuses for our trip. Definitely worth the trip!

Loud gunfire didn’t work for us.
A fine site, but left after a couple hours due to continuous gunfire shots. Not the quiet retreat my family was hoping for.

Great Views
Great, spacious campsite with beautiful views. Owner provides firewood, water, chairs, picnic tables and hammocks. Wooden deck is great for setting up your tent. There is an uphill walk to the campsite (10-15 minutes) with carts provided by owner to help carry supplies. Bring rope to secure your tent to the deck!

Fantastic location
It was such an amazing stay. The location is very accessible to folks in Philly and the campsite is just perfect. It has everything we needed for a great weekend with our senior dog. I will warn that the hike in is a bit steep so learn from us and pack a little lighter (the wagon helped out a lot though!)

A perfect camp
Easily one of the best camping experiences of my life. Everything we needed was there - hammocks, a few tarps, firewood, chairs, and a rugged cart to bring our equipment up the hill on the 10 minute hike. There’s a lovely brook with a perfect little spot for a dip in the cool water. Truly excellent.

The 4 of us stayed for 2 nights. It got pretty hot during the day but found some nice relief in the stream that was close by. Close to town if you forget anything. Far enough away from other homes. You barely know anyone else is around. Saw some older bear scat but never saw bears. Heard plenty of foxes, saw a turkey and had a mocking bird neighbor who just blasted away all day long lol. Very beautiful Rocky Mountain ridge camping spot. Plenty of foliage and trees that love rocky soil and put up with the mountain extremes. Plenty of tarps and four post pop up tent to keep over one of the picnic tables. Plenty of wood to burn. Thanks Mark! We’ll be back!

great views and unique setting
The views from the campsite are beautiful and there's a lot of space to roam around / just enjoy the property itself. The environment felt very unique for the area and unexpected which we really enjoyed. The walk in from the car was rocky but not difficult or a long walk. Three carts were provided to take our stuff to the car which was really convenient. There also were a good amount of camping items provided at the site itself which was really nice. We enjoyed the large tall backed chairs by the fire. The markings dividing this camp and the surrounding properties were pretty clear and with plenty of space to roam around my dog loved exploring the area with us, especially the large rocks which was fun to climb up and take in the view from. Would definitely stay here again and enjoy experiencing the scenery in a different season.
