Site 5 - Camp in the forest
Great location
We arrived late when it was dark and the caretaker showed us to our site. It was dark so a little hard to find our way as it's not what I'd consider a development campground. Think more dispersed camping! But the location is great. It's close enough for a quick drive to the busy farms but pretty quiet and removed from the hustle and bustle. We actually fit our 20 ft travel trailer on the site and our friends family tent and there was still a ton of room. My kids loved getting apple donuts and cider in the AM. We did some apple picking and took home Jane's amazing pies!

Site 6 - Camp in the forest
Wonderful! This farm was actually the most beautiful we visited. Yummy hot donuts in the morning and we enjoyed having a campfire and met some of the other guests. Sites are far apart. This site is next to the parking lot but once the farm closes for the day it’s plenty isolated and quiet. Recommend!

Site 6 - Camp in the forest
Family Friendly & Quiet
Everyone was so friendly. Nice quiet space to enjoy the orchards and all of what apple hill has to offer. This was a cute space for our family and friends. The three little ones enjoyed the morning walks around the property. Will come again for years to come!

Site 1 - Camp in the forest
Owner granddaughter threw big party
The site is beautiful and it was great to be in the middle of the orchards. We did have to clear some apples to find space to set up tents but I guess that's to be expected around this time of year. There was no communal campfire on Friday night which was kind of a bummer. What the biggest problem was on Saturday evening we saw a dj setting up near the campfire... about an hour later the granddaughter of the owners came up and told us they were having a party but that is should be over by 11... About 40 or 50 people showed up. To their credit it was over by 11, but only after the owners threated to call the cops on the partiers. There was loud thumping bass, which kept up my two year old I had with me. After the party was broken up there was tons of screaming in the parking lot, people arguing about not letting someone drive drunk and a couple fights. All of this about 50 yards from the campsite and right next to my car which I moved. If they had let us know earlier at least we would have been prepared for it, but letting us know an hour before it started was pretty lame. Also not getting a campfire Friday or Saturday night was a huge bummer since it's one of my favorite parts of camping and something they mention in the description of the site. Beautiful site, but huge bummer the owners let this go on with no apologies the next day or any message thereafter.

Site 3 - Camp in the forest
Overall awesome experience— wish there was more communication between us and the host as we never met in person and it often took several follow ups to get questions answered. Other than that, space was gorgeous and the farm is cute.

Site 3 - Camp in the forest
decent campsite
The ground was not that flat, and it's a moderate walk to some of the amenities like potable water. Still a good experience though, and the other reviews saying that the road to camp 3 is not good for 2 wheel vehicles did not match my experience. Our prius-like vehicle was fine accessing site 3.
