Our property was purchased and farmed by my ancestors in 1803. They cleared the meadow area of trees and rocks and established the stone wall, enclosing the area. A hemlock and pine forest at the edge of the meadow leads to our 50-acre wetland preserve which provides habitat for many bird and wildlife species. Native people also camped,hunted and trapped here in the early 1800s. Learn more about this land: Relax in a secluded meadow, wander through old Hemlock forest trails and watch many varieties of birds and other wildlife on 60 acres of wetland preserve. A very private spot with space for gatherings, tipis, tents, vans -- all are welcome. Absolutely beautiful night skies due to a lack of light pollution. Only 5 minutes away from the village, where you can pick up groceries and whatever else you need. Kids 12 and under can stay for free.

a nice field to stay the night.
This is a nice field with a good view of the sky. It was really quiet, and Dale was very nice. It's close to Clarkson and SUNY Potsdam, and also the Stone Valley trail.

Lovely lovely campground
Lovely hidden gem close to everything you would need - even a Walmart is close by. Would especially recommend to those that love to tent camp as that’s what it is best suited for. Hosts were very accommodating and lovely people.

Amazing meadow
This was my second time at Dale’s spot, can’t recommend this place enough, especially if you’re a morning person. Waking up early to the sun shining into the meadow is the absolute best! Love this spot.

Meadow camping
This was my first time booking on Hipcamp and it was quick & easy. Dale's property is lovely and we enjoyed our meadow campsite. The fireflies, frogs and owls were nice to fall asleep to. Dale is a caring and kind host who took the time to show us to our site and explain a few things to us. We appreciated all the firewood provided for us to use for an evening campfire. Potsdam is a cute town to explore too.

Great spot!
We had a great experience staying at Dale’s place. He and his wife are very accommodating. Falling asleep to the sound and frogs and birds is always lovely! We definitely recommend this spot!

Hidden gem 💎
This is such a hidden gem! We were looking for a place to stay for a couple nights where we had some space and also cell service to work. This was everything and more! The space is beautiful, the trails are great, and its a close jaunt to town if you need anything. We brought our ~25ft skoolie and had no issues navigating to the space. The fire pit and wood is a huge plus too! Dale was so gracious ensuring we had what we needed - he even dropped us off a few garden veggies! Definitely recommend. Thank you Dale & wife for hosting us!
