This forested country property was purchased in 1923 by my great grandfather as a farm. My father was born here. All that was left when I arrived six years ago was the old stone house foundation -n it took me three days to find that! It is an honor to share a place this beautiful, creek, hills n trails ... Learn more about this land: Bordering Hanging Bog Wildlife Management Area and Crabb Hollow State Forest this charmed creek laced forest has been in my family for over 100 years.  Recently turned camp with 10 well spaced camp sites with fire pits, deep well potable water, dish washing station and a couple of electrical outlets for charging, blender, hot pot....  We have what you need for comfort. We just finished a glamping cabin for those want maximum comfort and amenities all set up! ( Airbnb ) We are located right next to Wildlife Management and State Forest property and are on the snowmobile trail.   Enjoy central (communal) and/ or individual camp fire pits (some rustic wood provided).  Camp fire wood available near by ($5.00 bundle).  RV's will want to use the somewhat level primary and secondary drive areas (sites 1, 2, 3 or 6). You can have privacy or enjoy socialization here.  We are truly in the woods well spaced between sites and away from all traffic except very light country road travel. Spaces 1, 2, 3, 4, 6 and 7 are drive -in. Spaces 8, 9 and 10 are short walk-ins (50-250 feet) from parking. These locations, are across the creek FOOT bridge. You can not drive to them. Nice n private with rustic campfire wood, piled or to gather, near by. We have cut many beautiful walking trails on the forested hills out back and along the creeks.  We sit 1/4 mile (through two meadows and up one tall and one small rise) from three ponds FULL of bass  (fishing license required). I love to use the tiny beach at the first pond for a quick cool off swim.   For a group swimming or tanning spot try Rushford Lake, where the beautiful little sandy Rushford Lake Public Beach is exactly 3 miles away. (Opened through Labor Day) Just down the road you can put your kayak or canoe in the Hanging Bog or go over to Genesee River access, 6 miles away to paddle or fish.  Genesee Valley Greenway Trail is minutes away to go for a nice hike.  See the hidden jem, Wiscoy Falls in 20 minutes or hike around Moss Lake. Approximately 25 miles in either direction will get you to a great day at Allegany or Letchworth State parks.  You may want to take a nature path walks right here so you can hug trees and kiss rocks... or Play In The Creek ! All us kids and kids at heart love to play in the creek!  Enjoy a fire in the communal pit or in your own and the firefly show which starts at dusk! All Cuba area attractions including Cuba Cheese, Garlic Festival, Block Barn, Palmer Opera House, Moonwinks and Cuba Lake are within 10 miles. The superb Amish community and offerings lace the entire area. I love all the doggies and have a big lab mix, Dino, who thinks all the people and all the other doggies were made to play with him. We understand everyone may not see it that way.  Out of respect for everyone lets all keep our dogs in our space and clean-up after them. All are invited to cross the creek bridge for off leash romps and hikes. Children love it here! My Verizon phone and Hotspot work great here. There is a three week maximum stay limit at this time.  Only sites 1, 2, 3 and 6 can accommodate larger RV's.  Please come on down and enjoy this special spot. Rustic campfire wood provided for 1st night stay. Bring wood or purchase it from my next door neighbor. Do send any questions. Plan to arrive before 9pm for any site. Please take all trash away as there is no trash service in this area. Thank you!

Site 6 Good RV pull-in
Site 6 Hanging Bog Big Bass Serenti
Loved site 6 as it was easy to get to the shower, porta potty, and kitchen sink. The fire was awesome and plenty of fire wood to be used. The site was to get our camper backed in and set up.

Site 8 Across The Creek Walk
Great stay at site 8
We loved our stay at Diane's place. We camped at Site 8, a short walk across the bridge over the creek to a nice private site. A sturdy wagon is available to transport stuff easily from the car. Some sites were pull in, and the road is not busy at all. All the sites were really nice, the porta potty was spotless and the hot outdoor shower was an unexpected treat. Her dog Dino is a sweet boy and very friendly. We will be back at some point! Thank you for a restful time.

Site 10 On Small Creek walk In Nice
Stars, secluded spots
Wonderful hosts, great property! Initially started setting up at Site 10 but moved to 9 for some more space. 10 is a great little spot, but is best suited for one tent. Had a wonderful time!

Diane was a friendly, helpful host and pointed out hiking trails to explore from the beautiful property. The location was peaceful with only an occasional car passing by on the road. Recent road construction has made the entrance and exit very narrow. We have an F150 pulling a 22 foot trailer and had to maneuver a bit to get out

Site 3 Big Tent / Van Site
Site 3 was perfect for our 'camp in our van' needs while visiting Letchworth State Park (a 26 minute drive). The site is close to the road but cars rarely passed and it was quiet. Our Ram Promaster 3500 is big but we had an easy turn around and we backed into our site near a fire ring. Firewood was already on-site so we had a nice fire to relax in front of while enjoying watching the stars. Diane, accompanied by her friendly dog Dino, was a lovely hostess, made sure we had everything we needed, and even made us some breakfast muffins.
