Probably the nicest true forest high canopy experience I have ever had. Very well spaced generous campsite. Trees are very high but there is flat farmland nearby that let's the right amount of light in on the side. Great tent parking with a walk. We drove all the way in which is more convenient but I would not try it in anything bigger than a suburban or a low profile sports car. Perfect for tent camping. People who like very private camping with community oriented friendly people. Real close to beautiful Trap pond and a great stopover if you are heading to the Eastern Shore

So glad you found Deer Forest Hideaway for your stay. Great family + 1 (brother) I'm happy you went to Trap Pond with your canoes. Trimming holly limbs so next mini van can get to Site #3. Hope you enjoyed the eggs?!!

I booked the site to be able to camp at night and make day trips to the beach, the sign to the property was clear and we had the choice of the three campsites. Exactly what you would expect for camping! Very relaxing weekend and Brenda was so accommodating to anything we needed!

This was a convenient camp and Brenda was nice. We were the only ones there so we had the freedom to choose our site which was nice. Brenda drove us back through the sites to see which one we’d like and to see if our car could fit back there. I drive a smaller SUV and it just fit. So a bigger vehicles would have a really hard time making it through a couple of spots. The sites could use a little tlc but other than that it was private and nice

Brenda was a great host and very accommodating. The sites were large, far apart and It felt like camping in the wilderness. My friend and I hammock camped and the trees on our site were perfect. There was plenty of wood on the forest floor to keep our fire going on both days.

Stayed at campsite #1 and my tent fit perfectly on top of the platform. None of the other campsites were booked and the area has great privacy and was perfect for what I needed. Brenda was very kind and gave me a ride on her golfcart showing the trails and helping me decide about driving my car down the trails. My mazda fit and made it just fine. Great spot

Brenda was very helpful and responsive. The campsite was beautiful and felt very peaceful and secluded, despite being only a short walk from Brenda's house and the other campsites. As inexperienced campers, we felt very secure and this spot had everything we were looking for. I would definitely recommend camping here!

We proceeded to have a great time while camping! I would Highly recommend this campsite!

We planned a last minute camp out this past weekend and it was perfect. Brenda was great. She allowed us to choose our site once we arrived as we were the only guests that weekend. We stayed at camp 3 which is by far , the best site . It is situated in the woods and on the edge of a farmer’s field. The sites are quite spacious. Fortunately we were able to drive our car in but that may be difficult for larger vehicles. Brenda will provide a shuttle service in her buggy if you can’t make it back there. The sites are set back quite a way from her home so it truly feels like you are in the middle of nature. I would definitely camp here again.

Jennifer, you, Tyler and your doggies Arthur and Karma are welcome back anytime. So well behaved animals which didn't scare the horses. Love to see campers such as yourselves enjoying nature. I'm so glad the "other" campground was booked and you were able to find Deer Forest Hideaway. Come back again and I'll show you some closer hikes for your furry friends - not even 3 miles from here and so beautiful this time of the year. Enjoy your camping!!
