We're Ben, Trinh, Camille, and Sage. We purchased this 12 acres in Fall '20 as a way to share our love of the outdoors with our friends and family. As time went on, we noticed a need in making outdoor activities more accessible and inclusive to those outside our network. Rooted Timbers was created with the intention of making it easier for you to disconnect from business and connect with stillness.

Boondockers Dark Sky Paradise
Woods river camping
The land was great. Private camping spots for our tow behind small camper. With trails to explore and on a river bend making a pretty view. Has glamping tents on property to rent as well. Our site was a primitive camp site with a fire pit and portable toilet to use. It is in the woods so have bug spray. Beautiful noises of the crickets and frogs as we slept.

Beautiful spot! Easy to find and check in. Space is well maintained and peaceful, with plenty of firewood. Enjoyed walking down to the river in the morning!

Boondockers Dark Sky Paradise
Well-kept site about a 2 minute walk to the river, where some deck chairs await you and your morning coffee. Ben has mowed some trails around the property which are a nice way to explore the woods comfortably. Theis site has a picnic table and fire ring, and plenty of room to spread out a few tents or campers. There are a few other camping options on the property but we hardly noticed them from ours.

Riverfront Stargazer Bell Tent
Waking up in a field of butterflies
Spotted a beaver in the river & woke up to hundreds of butterflies & abundant bird song on this gorgeous piece of land! Very private & the kind, communicative hosts provided more than enough fire wood for two night's stay. Loved using the firepit cooking rack. Tent was comfortable & had a fan for the heat- but was slightly less "glampy" than we expected from the photos-- there isn't a french press (or a candelabra). There are extra blankets & a couple games & a makeshift cooking station at the firepit that had some foil /hand sanitizer/ lighter fluid and a "community kitchen" by the dome across a little foot bridge with well water running to a sink for dish washing. *Must bring in own drinking water!* River access is down a slippery, steep embankment and a small ladder that required climbing with hands, feet & full attention-- not the easiest spot to dip in & out throughout the day & would be difficult for folks with limited agility/balance/mobility. Overall a lovely stay and next time we would love to take them up on their kayak offer!

Riverfront Stargazer Bell Tent
My wife and I needed an escape for a bit and found this little slice of heaven. We took or girls out for the weekend who are 5 and 10 years old and they had a blast. There’s trails to walk on the property along with the river right there to peacefully relax by. Up the road was a state park and more kid friendly hiking. We took the kayaks out and enjoyed the water as well. If you’re looking for a getaway and like the idea of your camp site setup already this is it! Thanks Ben for opening up your property for us to enjoy! We will be back here someday for sure.

Riverfront Stargazer Bell Tent
The Stargazer Riverfront property made for an amazing weekend in the woods. The tent itself was incredibly comfy, cozy, and very well-kept. We loved every bit of it and will be back!
