Smokey Acres

· Locke, Cayuga, New York
23 acres hosted by Ian K.
Peace and relaxation is the name of the game. Enjoy this 23 acre wooded property to get away or to have close access to local activities. Spend the day reading by the creek, sitting by a campfire at the campsite or enjoy close activities the Finger Lakes has to offer. Fillmore Glen State Park is about 5 miles and Summerhill State Forest is about 2 miles away. Southern Tier Stables is a short drive through the state land if you want to go horseback riding. You will be in close proximity to 3 Finger Lakes: Owasco Lake is closest, but Cayuga and Skaneateles are not far away. Each offer public boat launches, boat rentals and swimming opportunities. This property is also in close proximity to the east side of the Cayuga Lake Wine Trail and there are a variety of breweries to access if that is your thing (Summerhill Brewing, Homer Hops, and Owasco Lake Brewing). If you want to stay on the property, there are a few miles of trails you can walk on (they are ATV/service roads), a sunset viewing spot, a small stream to soak your feet and smells of the forest.

Absolutely beautiful spot to get away for a bit. The creek and waterfall give an ambiance that is hard to get on such a personal level. Highly recommend!

I was looking for a spot with a firepit next to a creek in the woods and this spot had that and more. A short hike up the creek is a relaxing little waterfall. A hike up the ridge and there’s a beautiful sunset spot that is a great place to hang out anytime of the day to soak up some sun or at night to watch the moon and stars. Hoping to get back to Fern Gully again soon.

The perfect get away
Private location with a lovely sounding stream, a nice level spot for placing a tent, a REAL bundle of wood, a hammock, picnic table. an outhouse that doesn't smell :) ... but what you can't see is the attention to detail from the host. The most thoughtful camp host I've encountered. Very clear communication. Trails are clearly marked. Example of detail ... firewood is in a sealed can so it stays dry along with kindling and newspapers too.

Couldn't be happier with our stay, the site was perfect. Had a good flat spot for our sizeable tent, one bundle of firewood was provided with the stay, the sounds of the creek were wonderful to fall asleep to, and the sunset spot was awesome. Can't wait to stay there again!

A very chill spot.
Really glad we found this place. It had everything. A nice place for our tent close to the creek, a hammock, a picnic table and an outhouse. Everything was easy accessible (we drove our Subaru forester down to the site) and well organized/clean. The best part was the trails to the sunset viewing spot and the little waterfalls.
