Kelsey Creek Field and Valley

2 sites · RVs, Tents23 acres · Afton, NY
Learn more about this land: Reservations are open year-round. Campers will enjoy a lovely mix of New York wilderness and wildlife, but the property is only a mile from local restaurants, shops, and the quaint town of Afton. We have one space for an RV on a gravel pad, but depending on your vehicle's off-road ability and/or how dry it is, you are welcome to park a little further away from the road and closer to the wildlife. Site 1 is the gravel pad for RVs. There are no RV hookups and the site is close to the road. Site 2 is parking your vehicle or RV anywhere on the property. If your vehicle has 4-wheel drive, you can use the road down to the valley. The top 4 acres is a cleared, gently sloping field that goes back 600 feet from the road to a ridge of trees, where the largest part of the property starts. There is a road that was cut down to the valley (about 70 feet of descent) that is an easy walk. Although the top property has some spots with nice views, the true beauty of the property is the valley and the flowing creek. One-half of the lower property is a pine forest with many great camping spots for those who don't mind carrying their gear. The other half, where the road ends, is an open meadow. Vehicles with 4-wheel drive can park in the meadow next to the creek. When the wild plants of the meadow are high, I will cut a path through it for convenient access to the creek and other favorite spots. The crystal-clear, unpolluted creek has two places to swim, about 3-5 feet deep (depending on the season and what changes the last rains made), and is full of crayfish, salamanders, and even brook trout if you like to fish. My two boys (aged 9 and 11) never tire of exploring the forest, brook, and wildlife with me, and a dip in the cool brook is refreshing on a hot day. About a mile from the property, in town, there is a place to park for kayaking or fishing on the Susquehanna River. Oquaga State park is only 23 minutes away with fishing, boating, and a sandy beach on Arctic Lake. I hope you will have a lovely time camping with us! Occasionally, there are two noise-making businesses that you may want to know before booking. There is a private shooting club about 2.5 miles away that is open on the weekends. Normally we don't hear them, but they do occasionally, a couple times a year, have events that we hear. There is also a race track about 2 miles away that you can hear from the property on race nights, which are usually twice a month on a Friday, but they occasionally have additional special events. If you are looking for long-term camping, please let me know as we will definitely do discounts for weekly or monthly stays. Tiny Homes are also welcome.

Triple S Tenting

2 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents100 acres · Bloomville, NY
A great spot to come and camp high up on a hill. Pitch a tent and enjoy the solitude of camping in the middle of a hay field, under a huge oak tree. In the middle of farm country. From time to time you may smell a little cow smell or hear/see a tractor drive past.  However, there is nothing greater than the smell of fresh cut hay in the summer breeze. Deer graze in the fields surrounding the house.
