Amazing views

I own and live on 190 acres but am beginning my Hip Camp experience with allowing camping on 120-acres. The property is hilly and wooded with miles of trails on the property as well as access to nearby state trail-systems. The Skegemog Swamp Preserve trailhead is several miles away and downtown Traverse is a 30-minute drive. A little over a mile from the campsite is an artesian well along a public roadway that is popular with campers and the site is mowed by a neighbor; this is quirky little water-source that has been there for well over 50 years. The Skegemog Swamp Preserve is home to bears that visit my property for the many raspberry and blackberry opportunities, so be aware.Park your camper or pitch your tent in this tucked away campsite surrounded by hardwoods.

Incredible property and host! We didn’t know what to expect with this app let alone this site and we couldn’t have been more impressed. All 6 of us raved about the beauty and tranquility nonstop over our 2-day stay. Highly recommend.

Campsite was well maintained with lots of firewood waiting for us and tons of room to play some football. A short walk away your met with a beautiful view of the water through the forest. Very peaceful.

Perfectly secluded
Beautiful spot for tent camping. Completely secluded and private with beautiful views. Bob was super kind and brought us a load of firewood as well as welcomed our 2 pups to come along with open arms. Would definitely recommend. Thanks Bob!

Private Haven in Nature
This private campsite sits amidst the tranquil woods on top of a hill filled with stunning views and a peaceful atmosphere that enveloped the entire area. The campsite itself was well-maintained and surrounded by lush greenery and tall trees where gentle breezes brought calm and a soothing freshness to the air. The site provided a large grassy clearing with plenty of space for outdoor activities, and a fire ring to the side for cozy campfires. The owner was friendly and welcoming, and very easy to communicate with. He had a large stack of firewood waiting for us next to the firepit and told us we can contact him if we needed anything. Overall, this private campsite in the woods is exactly what I look for when camping. If you are seeking a truly relaxing retreat amidst nature, look no further. I recommend this relaxing haven for any campers looking to spend time outdoors away from busy lives.
