The host(s) were so kind! I didn’t get in until late but they met me to lead me to the site. The site itself was BEAUTIFUL!!! The lightning bugs gave me a light show at night and it was unreal. Highly recommend.

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at Meadow Basecamp in Freeville, NY. We were looking for a quick 1 night getaway into nature and had a great time. There’s a very nice fire ring (with wood) and a compost toilet. Just little things to make the night better. We listened to the frogs and saw lots of stars. We slept great. The host was very quick to respond and answered all our questions. We would definitely stay again and would 100% recommend to others.

Very private and safe spot tucked away in the corner of a large meadow with a fantastic firefly show. Many nice touches, including a stocked toilet and dry firewood thanks to a tarp. Easy drive into Ithaca. Highly recommend!

True isolation and seclusion
This was a great campsite! It was easy to find and very, very secluded. We didn’t hear anything but the sound of nature and we were able to see the stars. Firewood and a trash can were provided which we were very grateful for. The fire pit was also very well constructed. This was a great spot for chilling around a fire and relaxing. We were very happy with this site. It was exactly what we were looking for: private, secluded, and isolated in a beautiful meadow. Highly recommend this site for anyone looking for privacy and a relaxation getaway in nature.
