  'Top of the Pond'  can accommodate trailers but they must be on the smaller side because of low-hanging branches on the way to the camp.  There are no hookups. It is great for tent camping also.   You can pull in and park on a ridge overlooking the large pond, it's a nice view. There is a fire ring,  a large table and 2 chairs, and a round concrete table.   It's pretty much wild, unmanicured woods, with a view of the pond, and there is a barn (not an aesthetically appealing one) across the clearing.  No electricity or water. Please, no children, deep water, and steep sides on the pond.  There are about 45 acres of woods with a creek,  and dirt roads to walk.  Fishing OK. This is a pack-it-out site. No out-of-state firewood by order of the Dept of Agriculture.  Firewood is available for $20 per big stack. The main amenity is no crowds. This is NOT a party place., just to be clear. It's a place for quiet adults that don't want to be packed like sardines in a regular campground. ;) A porta potty is onsite until the end of November.

My wife and I had a wonderful stay at the ponds!! Very peaceful and restful!! We glamped in our 11’ 5” class C RV. There were a few low hanging breaches, but it was easy enough to slowly maneuver around them. Michele was a wonderful host!!
We did some kayaking on the 3 lakes very close by. All 3 were within 2 miles of the campsite. Looking forward to our next visit!!

Wine by the fire. So relaxing!!Top of The PondTop of The PondTop of The Pond

This was our secondary time staying at Top or Pond and it was even better than the first now that we are more familiar with the property.

Michele is a great host and her property is fantastic!

The site was beautiful and Michele was communicative and a pleasure to interact with. I thought there would be lots of bugs due to it being August and the site being so close to the Pond but it was surprisingly bug-less! It was wonderful to hear the owl hooting at night. A very enjoyable time! We would love to come back!

Great little spot tucked far enough away from the road, while still being close to civilization if you happen to need it. Lots of tree canopy to shade the sun, and tons of different wildlife to enjoy. Enjoyed the owls, foxes, deer, turtles and hummingbirds! Rain kept us from hiking too much but would love to come stay again and explore the property more. Also, the cleanest port a potty I’ve ever used!

Very nice, private, and clean spot. Views are great and not too far from a small town for any last minute needs. Host was very nice and helpful. Recommend this spot to anyone.

What a great place. Very convenient and clean. They ponds are very nice and have good size fish in them. A huge property with nice forest bathing. The owner met us the first night and was very friendly and accommodating. She lives close by so it was nice to know if we needed anything she could respond quickly. Very private. Very quiet. Definitely coming back.
