CAMPING and Picnic area closest camping to the water park next door. Quarry View is a unique 334 year old Brownstone quarry that is listed as a Historic National Landmark. Here you will find natural springs that flow from what we call "The wall of water" down to one of our small waterfalls. We also have many artifacts including dinosaur tracks and carved dates in the stones in the walls that go back to 1887. There is a trail that leads back in time to an area with 80 foot brownstone walls left from the quarry operations. Here you can find a rear patio where a musician will enjoy the acoustics unlike any other. Tuesday and Friday Drum circles 6:30-9 with a sunset ceremony. We sit 50 feet above the water upon the ledges that overlook the Brownstone Discovery and Adventure park below . (SITES ARE BASED on 2 adults children under 16 FREE) Contact us before booking with details of your party for help to book.

Fantastic location with beautiful views of the quarry, beautiful cliff faces with vegetation and birds, and a huge fire pit. Dean was extremely helpful and kind. Clean spot. Lots of space. Location is near brownstone adventure park which kids loved. We were sad to leave and will be coming back!

Amazing experience. Beautiful, secluded yet with everything that you need. Dean was super helpful and made himself available at all times. Restroom situation is a porta-potty but it is cleaned prior to each new camper. Highly reccomend staying at this site!

Darlene & Dean were very accommodating and the site was beautiful. The quarry had a uniqueness to it. We were given our own bathroom and were even able to change sites half way through to get another cool view of the water.

Dan and Darlene were great hosts. They made sure we were happy and comfortable with our camp site before leaving us on our own for the day.
