Scars in the polished granite streambed tell the story of saw mills from the 19th century. Not far from the foundation of one of the more established farmsteads of the era, this campsite is tucked away from the road down by the rushing Bull Branch of the Sunday River. Whether you bake on the rocks after dipping, or toss a fly in a quiet pool, the river will soothe your soul. Explore endless mountains streams, trails to the Appalachian Trail, and remote dirt roads in the heart of the Mahoosucs from your secluded walk-in low impact tent site with privy. Deep swimming holes and trout fishing beckon. There are three sites: #1: Riverside (more secluded),#2:Hillside(closest to the parking), and #3: Fireside. The hillside and fireside sites can combine for a group although are at a short distance from each other. If weather conditions permit, all campers can share the fire circle and table. The Riverside has its own table.

Winter camping with the pups!
Wow, what a beautiful spot! I think this may be the best hipcamp I’ve been to! I love winter camping and this was perfect spot! Not too far to walk in with my gear but it also felt very secluded. My pups loved to run around the woods and play by the river! I could also hear the water from where I was staying! I will definitely be back.

Site 2 Hillside
I loved camping here! I went in October, and it was absolutely beautiful! I went and followed the creek south and got to see a lot of beautiful sites. It’s off of a dirt road, so you don’t hear any traffic at all, and because of the lack of light you see ALL of the stars at night! The only two things that could make this experience better is having a picnic table at the hillside site, and having a small fire pit at the individual sites. Other than that, I have only great things to say about this camp site. Abi is very responsive, and keeps her land immaculate. The out house is a huge plus too! Very well kept. Thank you Abi, and I will definitely be camping here again.

Site 1 Riverside
Beautiful and unique!
Beautiful, quiet, well-maintained campsite. The location felt unique and was close to the nearby Sunday River ski park, which offered some fun hiking and mountain biking trails. The directions and other instructions were easy to follow and our host was very accommodating.

Site 1 Riverside
Beautiful site next to a roaring river! the site is big enough for two tents, and the outhouse is super clean. We enjoyed our stay and will be back next summer for swimming!:)

What an unreal and magical spot. Couldn’t recommend more! Definitely the best hipcamp I’ve stayed at. Privacy from neighbors, and incredible river access. Enjoy
