Site 4 - Emmalyne (The Historic Local Name)
A lovely spot clearly loved by the hosts. Beautiful, old gardens among old Apple trees on a few acres. Land slopes a bit, but plenty of flatter sites to be found. Sun is early, but it warms everything up, fascinating an early departure. Real bathroom — as in, indoors — with plenty of charging options. Great bikepacking stop.

This was a great spot. The sites are in Mr. and Mrs. Smith's backyard. Mrs. Brenda gave us a tour and the best spots to set up our tent. She was amazing! The private bathroom/shower area was large and the astetics were gorgeous. You'll love it, I'm sure.

Highly recommend! :)
Loved our stay! The yard is so big with a lot of more intimate spots and the house is super nice with a separate entrance and the bathroom is directly adjacent so it’s super convenient. Our hosts were so nice and welcoming couldn’t have ask for a better place to camp out in Rockland. We had the worst weather but the best hosts haha! Highly recommend!
