We bought our beautiful 23 acres with our hacienda on it more than 30 years ago and we have had friends come camp here over the years. Our friends love to swim in our pond and bring their dogs over for hikes and mountain bike rides so we decided to open it up for others to enjoy.Up on a hill 10 miles from Ithaca, pitch a tent by the pond or find a shady spot near under the pines. We have 23 acres of park-like setting with trails that lead from the pond around the property for walking the dog, taking in the beautiful views and enjoying the sunset. Our spring-fed pond is lovely for swimming and it is stocked so you can catch and release. There is enough space that you will not be able to see the other campsites from your site though you may see people lounging and swimming in the pond at any given time. We have our portojohn pumped and sanitized weekly. No soap in pond please.  Please let us know if you are bringing your dog when making your booking.  Due to the steep banks of the pond, we do not allow young children who do not know how to swim.  We recycle and compost. Please comply with this or we will have campers take their trash home with them.

The best dog- friendly campground!
Awesome spot! Spacious and tidy campsites, super dog friendly (off-leash), clean portopotty, beautiful setting, and close to Ithaca (don’t miss the market on Saturday). Sharon is a gracious and helpful host. We’ll definitely return.

What a beautiful, beautiful place! I think we were the 1st ones there this year, and it was lovely; everything just as described. There are paths and areas to camp mowed in the grass, and the rest of the meadow was left uncut, much to the delight of our dogs. Sharon was great, and the view was amazing. We'll be back.

Beautiful piece of land
Amazing property. The view is great in the morning. We brought our dog and tent camped for a few days while we did some hiking in the area. Our dog loved running around the open land .Sharon was super helpful with recommendations where to go and was very responsive when we needed her. Would gladly stay again if we were coming back to Ithaca.

We had a great night here! There were several sites to choose from and I decided on the site right at the edge of the pine forest. The views were fantastic and we had a great time walking all of the trails. Thanks, Sharon!
