Glamping Tent at Camp Griffin
It’s all ready for you!
We had such a great time staying on Kimberlee’s beautiful property. The tent was beautiful, comfy bed, rugs covering the floor, a table for all your stuff, and an incense burner! My daughter was in heaven. Great fire pit area was perfect for evening fires and chatting. We got the s’mores kit and the chocolate was especially fab! She recommended some fun day trips and we want to return! ❤️

Very nice hosts and a beautiful location. There is a communal fire pit, so we got to chat with other campers, and had a great experience in every way!

Glamping Tent at Camp Griffin
A Backyard Sleepover
We were amiably greeted by the hosts of Camp Griffin and were given everything that we might have needed. It was wonderful to be able to bring our dog, although her being there very much excited the host's energetic pups. The camp is plot of land that hosts a beautiful home and a few other structures that offer a variety of camping experiences: areas to pitch tents, a tipi, a yurt, and even rooms inside the house. While we were up for a communal experience and went in with expectations of having less privacy than we normally would while camping, the place quickly filled up with people arriving late into the night. We knew others would be joining the site, but perhaps didn't do enough research or ask enough questions about the reality of actually how many guests would be staying at a time. If you're eager to meet many new people and don't mind the noise and close quarters of a backyard sleepover party, then this is an ideal place to stay. The cost of the space is quite high, considering the lack of privacy available. I would recommend Camp Griffin to those who had a better understanding of what to expect, especially in this time of Covid 19 where people might prefer to practice more social distancing. I take responsibility for not asking more questions and still do consider it to be an overall positive experience.

Overall, Kimberlee has a great place at Camp Griffin. Her and Kyle are super laidback, friendly and helpful hosts. The whole place is beautifully decorated and comfortable. Unless you bring your own table, chairs and firepit, you'll probably be using the communal space which means contact with other campers. With that in mind, I would not recommend this site for someone looking for a private camping experience, but if you want to stay somewhere beautiful and don't mind mingling with other campers, it would be perfect!

A very warm and welcoming little campsite. Close to some really beautiful day hikes. Kimberlee is a very kind and helpful host. I went with a friend and my dog and we all enjoyed our little tent site as well as meeting others around the communal fire pit.

TIPI amongst the tall grasses
Both Kimberlee and Kyle were generous and very gracious hosts. The teepee is comfortable and kept the rain out in the middle of the night. While there isn't a ton of space inside- it's mostly filled by the bed, it is cozy for two. The outhouse was well stocked with paper, sanitizer and sanitizing spray. When someone messed up the toilet, it was very quickly fixed. There is enough space to avoid other people and the other campers while we were there were very respectful about social distancing and masks around the communal fire. The hosts were friendly and available when we needed them but also gave us plently of space when we didn't.

Great Getaway!
My boyfriend and I stayed here for 1 night, we pitched our own tent, cooked dinner on the community fire and talked to the other campers. It was a great getaway. Highly recommend!

Burnt out caregiver takes a rest
Kimberlee and Kyle were great hosts. Music playing if I wanted, a fire pit, plenty of seating, very quiet. Although I was the only camper so it was easy. The tipi has a queen air mattress I would suggest this tent for 1 person. There’s barely any room for a bag And it was just me. Overall a nice little spot for a 2 night stay.

Great hosts. Very welcoming. We expected a swimming hole on the property. I thought this was a feature on the property but maybe I misunderstood. It was quite a bit down the road (driving + trail walk). Lovely place to stay.

Great place to camp
Kimberlee is a wonderful host and her place is great for first time campers like us. The camp grounds are clean and we loved the aesthetic of the place. The location is a quick getaway from New York City and worked really well for us. We would definitely go back.

Charming spot to camp
Kimberlee and Kyle were gracious and responsive hosts. The site is charming, with nice touches all around - chandeliers in the large mulberry tree, a big jenga set, a shabby-chic dining porch, etc. Activities at the site include exploring the large lot (fun for kids), communal fire pit, outdoor games the hosts offered us, and watching tons of fireflies in the meadow and trees after dusk - that was my favorite part of our time at Camp Griffin. We visited mid-week, and only shared the site with one other group per night, so social distancing was fairly easy for us. It would be more difficult with many more parties camping. The site is a large rural lot behind their home. They've recently mowed several additional parts of the property to allow campers to spread out. There is hand sanitizer and a vinegar spray in the outhouse, and Kimberlee offered to put a bleach sanitizer in there for us, but we had our own sanitizing wipes, so we didn't take her up on it. Overall a charming spot to spend some time. We had a nice stay.

Stylish, picturesque campsite
Our Family’s first time EVER camping was a blast! We can’t thank enough Kimberlee- the host who made our camping experience so precious. She responded all my questions quickly the days before we head to the camp. We felt so secure. Since it was July 4th weekend, the campsite was full, but we arrived at around 3:30pm and we were able to choose the site, wherever we wanted. So I am suggesting to check in early, if you want to find a perfect spot :) What else I can say? Vintage, reclaimed furnitures, chandelier under the tree, heart on the wall... everything on this campsite is a piece of art in the nature. After a dawn we spotted thousands of fireflies on backyard. Hope to come back here again soon!

Lovely spot, great host
We stayed at camp griffin on a weekday cycling tour, and really loved it. It was really a wonderful atmosphere, and we were especially thankful to have the covered porch on an outbuilding to retreat to when we were hit with a huge rain storm!! Kimberlee was a great host and really went above and beyond to make visit really great, thanks so much!!

Peaceful getaway!
My husband and I just really wanted to get out of the city, sit by a campfire, and sleep in a tent and wake up to chirping birds! We got all of this and more! The property is just so pretty! The buildings and lighting are like something out of a magazine! And our fellow campers, and their dogs, became instant friends, if just for a weekend! So much fun. And so much peace...in a time when we needed just that. Thank you to our wonderful host! Kimberlee answered all of my questions so quickly. She has a real gift as is evident by the beauty of her home and property. I’m grateful that she shares it with others.

What a charming spot. It felt like we were in a photo shoot with the chandeliers hanging from trees, the adorable details like the coveted dining porch, the fire pit and heart barn. Even the outhouse was cute! We listened to wind chimes and crickets at night. Truly peaceful. We were lucky to camp midweek and had the space all to ourselves. I think it would feel a little tight and lack privacy if more than a few groups were camping at the same time. The surrounding area was great. We went strawberry picking just down the road at a farm & it was a 15 min drive to the village of Frenchtown that was so sweet. Great little bakery, cafe shops and access to tubing in the river.

Glamping Tent at Camp Griffin
Camp space was a cheery, artistic, and fun section of the large yard of a farm-style house. The glamping tent was comfortable, pleasantly waterproof, and had space to easily hold 2 plus a broad set of personal effects, instruments, and gear. The space is well-decorated and fanciful, with a range of curated and wild spaces in the yard. There is a creek and a number of working farms nearby. Not necessarily a private space and is close to house and with a shared fire pit, but it makes up for it in charm. Hosts were both courteous and fun. The outhouse was charming and clean (with federally-mandated moon decoration) and there was water for cleaning and refilling.
