Kathleen is a Star Host
Star Hosts are highly rated, responsive, and committed to providing incredible experiences.
We have 10 large sites available on our 33 acre property located in Northwest NJ. Sites 1 through 4 are on mowed, fairly level fields and are large enough for campers or RV's up to 30ft, or a couple of tents, and sites 5 and 6 are further back in the woods, available only for a few small tents, sites 7 through 10 are much further into the property and can only be accessible with a high clearance AWD or 4WD SUV or you can park and hike your gear in.
Although we are only 2 1/2 miles from a main highway, the last 2 miles are on a dirt road with no houses.
We are surrounded by protected land, so no neighbors and lots of wildlife, including the occasional bear, coyote or raccoon. Keep all food items secured. Because we are surrounded by protected land we are not sprayed for insects, so be safe and do tick checks often and bring the bug spray.
We are 45 minutes from NYC or the Delaware Water Gap and an hour away from the NJ shore. There are horse farms nearby that offer trail rides. We are also close to the Highland and Appalachian Hiking trails.
There are two reservoirs within a 20-minute drive for canoeing or kayaking.
There are walking trails through our property, including a ten-minute hike on a marked trail to a small waterfall in a ravine.

Peaceful in NJ
Wonderful quiet spot in Northern New Jersey. Kathleen is a very responsive and informative host and I definitely plan on going back to get away from my urban home.
I enjoyed the peace and quiet on a gorgeous yet chilly NJ night.

Good find in NJ!
Wow! Great spot tucked away in northern NJ. Quiet and fairly remote. Kathleen took the time to say hi - always a welcome gesture.

Site 6 tents only
Truly amazing property! The sites are varied and not on top of each other, there are an abundance of hiking trails that take you simply through the woods and the land as well as lead to features like the waterfall (not a tiny one either!) and the pond that feeds it. I appreciate the well thought out details, the sites and trails are clearly marked, every site has a small light at the entrance to mark it. There is wood not only available and we’ll seasoned but a cart to transport it back to the site. Would not hesitate to go back whenever I’m in the area!

Site 5 tents only
Great place and Kathleen is super nice! It's a great place to camp but within 2 hours of the shore area in NJ; our usual go-to for a quick weekend camping trip.
