Circle of Fire Campsite
Site was beautiful, the amenities were very nice, clean showers and toilets, and everyone was very friendly. Be prepared to lug your things up and down the hill as you cannot drive up to the site. Other than this everything was wonderful!

Rustic Cabin 1: Red Eft w/WiFi
Camp Earth Connection is so beautiful and the cabins are amazing. It is truly the best of both worlds: feeling connected to nature but still having basic amenities like shower and wifi. I recommend it to anyone and everyone.

Rustic Cabin 3: The Meadow Vole
Great for hiking and birding
The cabin is rustic with electricity and WIFI. The best of both worlds! Bathrooms and showers were clean with hot water. Luxury! Hiking trails are directly accessible from the property. The surrounding forest is home to a wide variety of woodland birds that are often heard but seldom seen. Eshay (susan) was a wonderful host.

Story Time Log Cabin
Had a great stay, weather was not cooperative. Cub cabin was large and bed comfortable, the tin roof is very loud in rain. Bathroom decent and shower has good hot water.

Rustic Cabin 1: Red Eft w/WiFi
Cool Campsite With A Nice Owner!
Eshay runs a lovely, diverse, inclusive camp that is family friendly and also earth-friendly. My adult kid and I had a lovely time sheltering from some pretty heavy rainstorms in our rustic cabin. Just be aware that you are camping in a state forest and you will encounter bugs and possibly small snakes or other wildlife, because you're in NATURE. Don't let that deter you from checking out this lovely camp.

Campsite 1: The Rabbit Hole w/WiFi
The camp site is really in the woods and felt very much like being in nature. This site has a very rustic feel and not some commercial camping ground. If you are into a little rough, little unkempt and overtaken by nature feel, this is it. Loved the site though had to cut short the trip due to heavy rains. Susan is wonderful and a wee nice person to have around.
