TJ’s site is absolutely wonderful. So beautiful, and the wildlife is plentiful. TJ was also a very helpful and communicative host, and happily answered any questions I had and offered great advice. You won’t regret your stay!

Private pond and stream very close to site. The place was private and secluded aswell. It was a great get away and balance of both small towns and nature. TJ was responsive and friendly.

TJ’s historic barn property
I enjoyed camping by the historical barn on TJ’s land. It was very private and rustic tucked in the woods. The fire pit was great. I brought my own wood and enjoyed a roaring blaze. The best part is the lake and the nearby Ireland Brook. With a short hike you can be at the edge of both. It was also soothing to hear the bubbling of the brook at night. I will be back to explore more!

Nice and quiet. Lots of beautiful forest. Simple access. The old house appears a little spooky when setting up at night, but it’s not - especially after the sun came up. TJ was extremely kind and helpful. I would definitely return.

Really cool site. Drive in, park, and safely store your food away from your campsite. Walk about .25 miles in and pitch your tents in a grassy patch overlooking the brook. At night, the brook is a perfect sound machine. Explore historic trails, spot some deer, and enjoy a fire at night and in the morning. Kings is nearby for any and all last minute grocery needs. Would love to share this site with more friends.

Sweet Secluded Site
TJ was super responsive to all of our questions leading up to the trip. It's great that he's local and knows much about the surrounding areas and local features. The site was everything we needed in mid summer- shaded, wonderful, peaceful and private. Understandably, parts of the terrain and trees show damage from the recent and severe storms, but there's ample space to set up camp. I understand the property in three distinct sections: the Entryway, the Main camp site and Back Trail. The entryway is a manicured Certified Wildlife Habitat. The main camp ground includes a rougher gravel driveway, surrounded by trees. Through the old barn, you'll find the back trail that parallels the India Brook Natural Area, a trail system leads to the Buttermilk Falls! There's no official stream crossing to connect TJ's to the White Trail, but it can be done with caution and care (or without fear of getting wet). I highly recommend it for hiking or trail running. The terrain can get a little rocky and technal, so be mindful of what you can handle. The India Brook system is clearly marked on the Strava Fitness App.
