There are several options for setting up your tent. You will be the only ones at Fernwood, or Fernwood 2 unless we happen to be up working on the land.  No matter where you set up you'll have your own private fire pit, and level ground for your tent(s).  Come and enjoy a quiet retreat, or use Fernwood as a base for many outdoor activities-biking, fishing, hiking-all nearby.  Natchaug Forest offers great trout fishing.  Goodwin State Forest is less than 3 miles away by car where you can put in a canoe on Pine Lake, amble through the wildflower and pollinator gardens, or enjoy the Education Center and Museum. From Goodwin, you can access the Air Line State Park Bike/Hiking Path.  Hampton also has a general store that has simple food, frozen dinners that Kara will heat up for you, gifts, and awesome Ice Cream Sodas! ( https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100085946253543&mibextid=LQQJ4d )  If you want a change from all that nature, there is Sharpe Hill Vineyard less than 10 miles away, as well as We-Li-Kit IceCream less than 6 miles.  The route to either place will take you through beautiful scenic farmland.  We hope you enjoy our forest and the surrounding area as much as we do.

We enjoyed our stay! Very peaceful and serene location. Alan did a great job communicating and letting us know what to expect, and everything we needed was there. The porta potty was definitely the cleanest I’ve ever used!

Great camping spot
My girlfriend and I rented a campervan and drove down to Connecticut. Alan's place was the perfect place to stay for the night, and had several options for parking the van. There is a nice firepit there at the campsite and he has wood and water for sale. We had some initial trouble finding the place, but Alan was very responsive and helped us right away. There is also a public park right up the road, within walking distance from the campsite. The porta-poty toilet was very clean! We hope to return sometime.

Camping fun
I took my boyfriend here for his first ever camp (he's a city boy) and we BOTH loved it! The best part was the neighbors Donkeys down the road. It was so quiet, relaxing and the beautiful fresh air blowing. The ground is perfect for tenting⛺️. Alan was extremely kind during our conversations and probably one of the most kind Hearted people I've spoken to on here. It was such a joy to be there. We will absolutely be booking again in the future.

I had a wonderful experience on Alan's site! Even with a little rain, the scenery was stunning and walking the trails on the nearby preserve was a wonderful way to spend the day. Alan was very communicative and clear as well. Would definitely go back or recommend to a friend!
