My property is about 70 acres of wildflower meadows, ponds, organic grain farm and forest located about 10 minutes northwest of Ithaca and 20 min from Finger Lakes wine trails. Enjoy walking along the dirt road and mown trails throughout the property, wild raspberry and blackberry picking, bird and wildlife watching and some incredible sunsets! The campsites are located well off the main road for privacy and seclusion. A convenience store and gas station are located about a mile down the road. This is a peaceful and beautiful place to stay.

In The Pines (tent site)
A great time
The Green Heron is a wonderful lush preserve that offers privacy and peace at an affordable rate. There’s a pond and an accommodating out house to boot. I stayed 4 days and 3 nights and felt safe and comfortable while out there. Would recommend anyone to spend a weekend at the green heron whether on your own or with friends!

Camp here!
Such a great time here. A beautiful property and very well kept facilities. A little hard to find, but worth it for how removed and serene it is

Pond site
Nice site by a little pond. Access by dirt road in very good condition. Quiet, but we were the only ones at the place. There was a reasonably level spot on the grass for our van, but the site isn’t graded. Outhouse is a very short walk from the site. Short drive to downtown Ithaca. Lots of birds & rabbits. Will definitely return next time we’re in Ithaca.

I loved this spot for our spontaneous camping trip! It was very secluded and quiet on a large, beautiful piece of property, the owner is very friendly and prompt with any questions, thanks for a lovely stay on your campground! We will definitely be back

Secluded Spruces
Secluded Spruce site
What a great little spot. We are experimenting with our new off grid trailer. So we wanted to do a trial run. We chose Secluded Spruce, large site ,picnic table, fire pit. I ordered 2 bundles of wood when registering, they were at out our spot when we arrived. The campground and sites are spotless, very well maintained. The host was quick to respond when I had a question to ask before booking. Although it was a windy day , and cold , we had fun . We heard owl in the night , and woke to the sweet melody of chirping birds. I would definitely stay again.
