Great little hangout spot
Really enjoyed the site. Easy to get to and feels surprisingly remote to be so close to a paved road and about 2 miles from a neighborhood. If you follow the creek out back you can get in a decent little hike. We stayed on a 34 degree winter night, but the fire pit and included wood kept us nice and toasty. The grill was awesome to have so we could pack in steaks in the cooler. The silo itself blocked the wind so inside our Army sleeping bags it was not too cold. We also set up a sheet and projector with 550 cord to watch movies and play video games at night. Be sure to bring lanterns for the silo, it's pretty dark in there even during daytime. And our blow up sleeping mats under our bags were key given the cold concrete pad. Only downside at all was we couldn't figure out how to get inside the outhouse, we did find a key in a lockbox but it didn't seem to fit. But it was a dudes trip so we were fine.

Camping in a silo!
We always look for fun camping trips with the kids. We had a short time for an overnight stay and found this place. We didn’t even need to unpack our tents; we slept in the silo with two of our kids. Our teenager slept in the covered hammock just outside. The little kids and our dogs loved the seesaw bridge. We loved the seclusion. There’s a road but it’s not busy at all. There were a couple planes. But mostly just the sounds of nature. We also loved the Adirondack chairs and the fire pit. There was also a grill and firewood readily available. Definitely planning to come back again.

We had a great evening on this property. There's ample camping under shade, the fire pit is very nice and well stocked, and it's neat to be next to the creek (though we weren't bold enough to try to figure out see-sawing the aluminum dock to get down to the water). The grain bin is a neat touch, and though we found it echo-y and it's concrete floor very hard to sleep on, the appeal of it in the rain might be higher. Note for campers looking for complete privacy, while there's a fence and a field separating the campsite from the road, there's still a direct sight line from drivers and bikers. Still a LOT more privacy than a state campground or something similar.

Peter's camp site is magical. We took our 6 year old on his first camping trip here and it exceeded our expectations. It was private and secluded, yet close enough to town. The see saw bridge, grain silo and creek were enough for our child's imagination to run wild for a life time. We saw owls and other beautiful birds on the property and tons of flickering fire flies. The provided fire wood was an extra special treat. The camp site was well maintained and clean. Our family will definitely be back!

Great piece of property with firewood, pit, and seating provided. I’ve stayed here twice now and greatly enjoyed both weekends.

Easily accessible, fun spot!
What a neat campsite! This is a nice site, off in the woods while only being a couple hundred yards from a sleepy road, and about a 5 minute drive from Poolesville. There's plenty of level ground for tents, a really nice fire pit, and lots of trees for shade. I appreciated that there was already a metal cable strung between two trees to use as a hanging line. Note that some of the pictures are old- the concrete slab that had the triangular tarp stretched over it is now the slab that the grain bin rests on. There wasn't a Weber grill when we were there, and the well pump that was pictured/mentioned didn't seem to be working. Most of the campsite is visible from the road, but there weren't many cars at all and it still felt private. I appreciated the locked gate. There is a latrine at the site but it's locked. The charging station was very welcome! There was also a giant pile of firewood which was awesome.

We had a great time at this site. Peter had everything cleaned up with fresh cut grass around the camp area before we got there. Unfortunately, it rained almost a full 24 hours during our stay so we only had one clear night and half of a clear day with dry sunny weather - totally my fault for not double checking the weather before hand. We still would have made the trip but I would have planned better for it. Fortunately, there was a grain silo on site which helped keep us dry. Next time ill pack a rain fly regardless of what I thought the weather is going to be. The creek has easy access with the cool see-saw bridge and would be a great spot for hanging out on some water tubes during the hot summers. This site will definitely be on our list for places to return to.

Second time there -- seemed even better this time. Just can't beat the privacy and location. So much nature -- so many owls this time. Great fire pit, chairs available and a cool grain silo was added since we were there last. Definitely would return.

Perfectly Private Camping
Peter was a great host and very patient with my ineptitude. He statyed on the phone and directed me to the right place and contacted me as we were leaving to ensure our trip went well. The site itself was miraculous. We went looking for a place to let the dogs off leash and found it. It was the moat enjoyable camping experience so far and we will definitely be back.

Great private camping spot on a creek. The property was easy to access and Peter was very responsive and helpful. Much better than the usual crowded campground. You have your own 1.5 acres to explore, fish and relax by the large fire pit. The new grain silo provided a clean and dry place to shelter during the late night storm that passed through. The solar-powered charging station was also a nice touch. Would recommend it to anyone looking to escape the city. Only about 45 minute drive from DC but feels worlds away.

Terrific creek side private camping
Great spot - super private and amenities like wood for the fire pit, shovels, fishing poles etc were a nice touch. Awesome creek side location with incredible sounds of nature. Host was very helpful - he touched before hand with additional information about the site and was available by text or email if we had questions. Would not hesitate to return.

So far one of the best experience we have ever had camping. The place is really private, has 3 chairs which is great bc not all my friends have camping chairs. It has plenty of firewood and a lot of different places where you can set your tent. We have so much fun ! Can’t wait to go back !

Highly Recommend!!
Our group had the best time! It was a perfect weekend get-away. The land was private but fenced in which made it feel safe. Peter made sure there was plenty of wood in the shed and provided us with materials like an ax, lighter, and a few other supplies that we wouldn't have even thought to bring. Peter checked in our group to make sure we had no questions or concerns and we could text if we needed anything. 10/10 would recommend this site!

Very private campsite by creek!
This site was very private and extremely clean and well-maintained. The host was so responsive and thoughtful, and helped us with an issue we had prior to arrival. It was a cold night, and we had tons of firewood as well as other small details that made the stay incredibly easy and comfortable. We enjoyed exploring the creek too - it was just my 9 year old son, dog, and I, but this place would be just as fun for a much larger group to enjoy. Highly recommend!

Amazing Site with a Great Host
My stay at Peter’s Hipcamp was amazing! The privacy was unmatched and he was an incredible host! He made sure the site was all ready with firewood and the water pump was working before we arrived. He was also very responsive when we had questions. There is ample flat ground to set up tents and the whole area was fenced in which was perfect for my dog to run and explore. If you set your tent up by the stream you can fall asleep and wake up to the sound of trickling water which was so peaceful. Peter’s site was everything I look for in a campsite and I hope to get back there again sometime!

Not really what was expected...
The best part about the site was the creek in the back, the fact that there was a cement pad so a cooking area could be set up, and a shed where the firewood was kept so at least it was dry. Unfortunately, there were some issues with the sight that the pictures did not lead onto. A lot of things are now run-down or in disrepair. The bbq that was available was completely rusted. Thankfully I brought a propane cooktop. The wood that was supposed to be available was only enough for 1 day... we were supposed to stay for 2 nights and 2 days. There was a canopy that had been set up over the cement pad that had fallen down so far that you could not use a whole side of the pad unless you were sitting directly on the ground under the canopy. The other canopy was shredded and had a hornets' nest being built in it. There were some tools provided lined up against a tree- a post hole digger, a small broom, a rake, and a shovel. This was probably a really fantastic site at one point had the owner kept up with it, I am sure it would have continued to be a great site, and with a little effort could get right back to being that. For what we paid, the site did not deliver.

Not as advertised - Avoid
When I booked this property I was excited about so many things. The privacy, the potable water, fire pit, access to the creek, a beautiful awning covering a concrete pad that was made for cooking and relaxing. What I walked into was something completely different. This site is in complete disrepair. I’ll start by stating that I love camping and know that maintaining a site can be challenging. However, this was beyond that. The awning/covering that is shown in the pictures is useless since it has fallen down to less than 3 feet from the ground. The other half of the awning/covering is completely shredded and dangling from a tree. Trash was left in a barrel on the campsite in addition to trash being around the entire property. There was broken furniture on the concrete pad that was just in the way and not useful. Lastly, the grill that was posted in the listing was partially broken and rusted. To be frank, I was highly dissatisfied. You can tell that when the owner’s original created this campsite it was perfect. However, it has fallen into absolute disrepair. I would avoid this site, and recommend that Hipcamp remove this property from its listing until repairs have been made and reviewed.

Ok but not for everyone
Private and safe. With no toilet, there is a lingering smell of previous guests around the camp site. The path to the creek isn’t for everyone and the fishing was not anything to speak of. A good place for primitive campers but not at this cost.

Great Stay in Poolesville!
This was a really perfect site. Totally private with amazing creek for fishing and chilling just 45 mins from DC. Poolesville is really cool to explore - Rocklands Winery and the Sunflowers - but you could also just hang at the site. Really cool quirky details like an amazing truck bed bridge over the creek. Highly recommend!

It was a perfect place to camp. The place is all yours. Just drive in, park and set up camp. Lots of open space. Endless fun. Just up to you how you utilize it. Very private location and theres a little creek in the back. We will be going back for sure.

This spot is a hidden gem
We had such an amazing time camping here!!! It's such a beautiful piece of land- open green space plus it's right on the river. Surrounded by wildlife! It was so peaceful and private and has enough space for big groups. The host was really awesome and communicative and he added many thoughtful pieces to the experience like providing firewood and solar powered batteries for charging devices. OH and it's soo close to the potomac river. We didn't want to leave & will def come back again soon.

We had a great time. I wish the road wasn't as visible and audible as it is. The owner has planted trees to block this. We could not see the fence on the sides, I would have been more comfortable with my dog off leash if we could. The creek behind the camp was terrific! My young boys and I loved exploring it. We even saw an otter! To our surprise the otter followed us. I had to shoo him off to make sure he didn't follow us to camp and have a conforntation with our dog. The campsite is quirky. There is a trailer making a bridge down to the creek. There fire ring is nice and large. There is a grill that can be put over it to cook on. Not having to bring firewood or water made packing easier and helped justified the premium pricing.
