We camped here overnight in a campervan after some heavy rain. The ground was softer than we expected and the van got stuck. Dustin is an awesome host and came and pulled us out of the mud with his truck. The property itself was quite pretty and super quiet. Would highly recommend!

Let me first say that there is certainly nothing wrong with this campsite and the host, Dustin, is superb and very helpful. The campsites seem idyllic and I was looking forward to testing out some new equipment for cold weather camping. Again, the campsite was great but…it was far from peaceful. We camped right by the pond which is just a few feet from the gravel road to get to the campsites. We were disturbed at least 3 times by someone either driving in or driving out late at night and early in the morning. After we went to bed, we were treated with the sound of loud country music playing from a neighbor’s property for almost an hour. When that noise subsided, we go to listen to dogs barking all night and coyotes howling and the dogs barking in response. From about 4AM until sunrise we were awoken by a rooster crowing for 3 hours straight and continuing even after sunrise. I slept less than 3 hours and was exhausted most of the next day. I cannot recommend this site even though the host has limited control over the noise. Deep sleepers might have no problems but light sleepers will likely not have a pleasant experience. I was grateful to be back in the city so I can get a good night’s sleep. I’ve been a lifelong tent camper and sometimes you get noisy campsites but this one just was not for me. I should have brought earplugs so that is on me.

We enjoyed watching the moon rise over the pond each night. What a peaceful spot! A great stay with a friendly host. I will definitely choose it again if we come back this way.

Newton’s Nook and the surrounding area was absolutely beautiful! There were 3 campsites that I could see on the property, but I was the only one there during my stay so I had more than enough space and privacy. As a woman traveling alone with a dog, I felt very safe and comfortable at this location and Dustin was very friendly. An outhouse and potable water were available.

We had a great time as a family. My son had so much fun he cried when we had to leave! That was a first.

Really quiet and peaceful spot that was easy for us to pull into with our pop up. Friendly host. Everything was as described and we would definitely go back.
