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 .

Dean, the rock whisperer, has created such a special place for others to enjoy! This type of camping isn't for everyone, as it doesn't have the usual amenities (yet), but it was perfect for us. Beautiful views, drum circle on Tuesdays and Fridays and natural artistry around every corner. Thank you Dean and Darlene for sharing your wonderful property with the public. We will definitely return.

Best private property RV experience we've had. Darlene and Dean were great hosts. They were available to answer our questions and give us an impromptu tour and details about the quarry but they also gave us our privacy as well. The quarry is magnificent to see. Feels like a small slice of the grand canyon. Our family had a great time visiting the Brownstone Discovery Park next door. Our stay will always be remembered.

What a unique place to park the RV overnight! The rock formations, the view, the dinosaur prints, oh my! The quarry is a one-of-a-kind camping experience lofted 50 feet above the water with extraordinary views. I only wish we had more time and no toddler to worry about. Parents of obstinate little ones: take care. You will have to be vigilant because it is a large cliff. Couples and adult friends, camp til your heart's content. I hear there is a drum circle twice a week and an arts festival coming up. What an awesome place with great hosts. Thank you for the stay!

thank you for the review and kind words and a reminder to others that we are 50 ft above water with great view but you still need to watch your children. But the kids do love the dinosaur prints and fish pond. Safe travels Dean , Darlene

We loved staying at Darlene & Deans! The quarry is beautiful, the port a potty’s were VERY clean, and they were accommodating to our group. We had one 22ft RV and two tents. Being able to hookup was an extra bonus. I recommend giving them a try.

It was our pleasure to have you as guest here and to enjoy the quarry and its beauty. And we are dog lovers here so all is good . Maybe next time you will check out the drum circle Tuesday or Friday nights

Staying on Dean and Darlene’s property is nothing short of a magical experience. From the moment you enter the property, you are greeted and given a full tour of this historic land. Dean gave us a few options and let us pick out our camp spot (and even gave us a much needed lesson in backing up our trailer).

The landscape is incredible and very unlike anything that you will find on the east coast. There are beautiful brownstones thoughtfully laid about all over the property, creating private camping areas, with tables and nearby bathrooms. And the landscape opens up to the gorgeous quary view. It is such a unique experience to watch the sunset here.

We were lucky enough to camp here on a Saturday, and we experienced the weekly drum circle. It is open to the community and such a wonderful experience. Everyone is welcome to express themselves and just enjoy the drums. Dean even set up a stunning light display on the 80ft rock walls. I know we will be back to enjoy this again.

On our way out of town we ran into a major issue with our small trailer. Panicked on a Sunday, knowing most mechanics are closed, we called Dean and he showed up not 10 minutes later to rescue us. He had us bring the vehicle back to his property, and laid on the floor in the pouring rain for hours fixing it for us. He even got the necessary parts for it. He saved us a TON of money and time and did it all out of the kindness of his heart.

We will absolutely be returning!
