A great private getaways with great views. Don’t pack to much because it’s a walk to the campsite, highly recommend a wagon.

Joseph was a phenomenal host and his property is stunning! We loved the upper campsite by the pond very much. We didn’t use the kitchen but the shower was great with plenty of hot water. Net time I’m in the area, I will book Rune Hill again happily!

My partner and I camped by the pond for 3 nights. It was beautiful. Having a fire pit and table was nice. There was also a shared outdoor kitchen and shower which were rustic and clean and super useful. The outhouses were clean as well. We didn’t use the trails as we spent most of our time exploring Ithaca and Watkins Glenn which were fairly short drives away. We drove up easily to the site in our small crossover. I would stay here again and recommend it to friends.

Great communal cooking space and pavilion. Didn't get a chance to see much of the property, but excited to go back and find more sites to stay at.
