Amazing Experience
We really love staying at Camp Earth Connection. The cabin was very cozy and big enough to host up to 4 people. Everything was in the right place and very clean. We were lucky that the sky was clear and spent sometime looking at the stats and planets. It was amazing. Susan is very polite, she was always on top of everything, making sure that we understood directions and the facilities. We definitely would consider this place for future vacations.

Great stay instead of typical hotel
Susan the host was great. My husband had mixed emotions staying g in a cabin without heat or electricity but he loved it. The cabin was clean and cozy and we built a fire right outside our cabin which made the night. The bathrooms and showers were very clean and well maintained. The hot shower in the am was perfect. Great stay. Would highly recommend it. We visited our son in Cornell and it was super convenient

Fox's Den
We loved staying on Eshay's land in the Fox's Den. It is secluded in the forest with a picnic table and nice fire pit. Comfy bed, lovely wooden structure, and bird-song and trees all around. Eshay was warm and hospitable. The showers were hot, the bathrooms sparkling clean, and the pavillion area was full of options for games for kids (ping pong, crayons, chalk, balls etc). The grounds are a mixture of well-kept meadow-lawns, gardens, and uninterrupted forest. Highly recommend and we will be coming back!

The Coyotes Den
10/10 would recommend
Such a great experience. Our cabin was cozy and spacious, & it was so nice being able to hear the rain and wild life. Showers and bathrooms were better than expected. Wifi didn’t reach our cabin, but we didn’t really need it. Super close to a ton of waterfalls in Ithica. I was so sad to leave and will definitely chose cabins over airbnbs in the future. Google maps directions worked just fine to get there.

Camp Earth Connection was just what I was looking for. This was my first time booking through HipCamp and it was a great first experience. It's a beautiful place with hiking trails, a pond, garden, etc and was easy to find. Eshay was very nice and informative. The amenities such as bathrooms and showers were clean and seemed to be well-maintained, and there's a common-area pavilion with activities like ping pong which would be great to use in case of rain. It was also really nice to see that this is a place that takes COVID seriously, there's hand sanitizer in the bathrooms and hand washing stations. I would definitely recommend this place and would stay here again if I find myself in the Ithaca area again!

Rustic Cabin
The cabin was so much bigger than I expected. My boyfriend, dog, and I all had plenty of space. There are 2 beds, so my sweet pup got her own bed. Susan is very nice/welcoming and makes sure you’re set for success. I would absolutely stay here again. Thank you so much!

Can I say "hidden gem" without breaking the spell? The cleanest campground I've been to, buried in the woods but only 25 minutes from downtown Ithaca. Host/ranger is thoughtful and extremely experienced. Could imagine a writing retreat here!

Very peaceful and perfect for us!
We had a great stay this was a cute quiet campground with plenty of privacy and a large enough cabin for the 2 of us. Only issue was that there was a lot of specific info that created some issues. However, in the end it all worked out. Just make sure you read the messages form the host through hipcamp rather than relying on your text messages because we missed some info that way. Overall I definitely recommend staying here!

Best Weekend Recharge
Camp Earth Connection is truly a gem — I highly recommend this site to others! Tucked away in the woods, the camp is extremely clean, organized, with lots of space between cabins, tents, and accommodations. There are tons of hiking trails within walking distance. With a comfy cot and a big fire, it’s the best sleep I’ve ever had since the pandemic began. Shared facilities, such as showers and toilets, were immaculate. I’ve never stayed at a campsite so well organized and clean! Also, the acceptance and love of this site is so evident - Susan is very kind, welcoming, and eager to answer our questions about the site. If you want the perfect place to recharge and connect back to nature, this is your place!

My husband and I would like to thank Susan for a such great weekend. Susan is a great host, welcomed us with so much joy and smile on her face. We made our way from Jersey, so she helped us with directions and even accepted our late check-in. The camping is very quite, peaceful, good people, good vibe, very clean and great for a get away.

Had a great time, would definitely spend more than just a weekend here. Lots to explore in the area. The cabins weren’t as secluded as expected, but not really a big issue. Everyone was polite and mindful of corona virus distancing and protocols.

Nostalgic summer cabin
We stayed one night - in the wooded cabin down the hill. Susan was extremely helpful and friendly. She greeted us upon arrival, helped us find the space, gave us wagons to take our gear down the hill, and made sure to explain the procedures of the common spaces. The family that stays there is delightful. The forest and the great big green between are a great place to bird watch and experience how beautiful the area is. We wanted to stay another night to have a fire since the rain kept us from having one the first night, but we decided we’d make another trip up in the fall and stay again. Great outdoor experience!

healing cozy cabin time
staying at camp earth connection was healing, centering, comfortable, and easy. the aspen was tucked in the woods with a convenient fire pit, picnic table, very clean facilities, and a cot. As a woman traveling alone, I felt especially safe knowing that my host, the owner Susan, was a rad woman herself! I will definitely be back on my way home.
