Guest can use the deck/outdoor kitchen with fireplace and the outdoorsy bathroom with portable toilet and hot showers! (Requires a little effort on the guests' part)! This private off grid getaway is located on a hillside accessed by a private lane with twists and turns and drop-offs that would scare a mountain goat! You can make it. Just take your time. This started as a 1920s log cabin that burnt down decades ago. The foundation and fireplace survived but needed restoration! We were lucky enough to find a great mason who coincidently lives on the other side of the mountain and was excited to help restore it! It is now a unique and beautiful deck with an outdoor kitchen with running water!   The Bunkhouse can sleep two adults and one or two children. There is a propane heater for those chilly nights! We have added some camping mats and mattresses. There is a guest outdoorsy bathhouse with a portable toilet and hot showers (propane heated). The shower is provided by a solar powered pump. Guests must heat the water to their desired temperature. There is solar lighting, phone chargers, radio/ cd player, board games, Bean bag toss and a rocking chair and hammock for your relaxation! Also, a child's swings and slide and Tonka trucks. The mini waterfalls leading to a small pond provide a relaxing atmosphere! ( Flow depends on the amount of rain)! The deck with an outdoor kitchen has running water, a propane stove, a propane griddle, and all utensils, pots, and pans needed to make a camping meal! You will need to bring your own paper products! The fireplace and campfire ring may also be used as long as there is not a burn ban in effect and fires are kept to a minimum! Check out the Spring House and use it to keep your favorite beverages cold! It is advised not to drink any of the water on-site, but it can be used boiled or for hot showers, cleaning utensils, cooling off, etc. Please bring bottled drinking water! Please no smoking on the deck or in any of the buildings! Clean up after your pets! Take out what you bring in! Please don't leave food or packaging! Garbage bags provided! Please read the departure checklist posted on the deck or in the cabinet that contains the radio! Running water and showers may not be available during cold seasons. Hiking in and out may be required in times of ice and snow.  If you like privacy and relaxation, this is for you!  Shopping in Wilkes Barre/Scranton is just minutes away!  For a great meal, try Adelina's in Mountain Top!  For a snack, try Abe's Hot Dog's next to the mini golf course and top it off with an ice cream from Malacari's, just a few feet away! There are many attractions covering everyone's style and taste within easy reach! Enjoy your stay! We are not a commercial campground!

Unique camping experience!
My only reservation for giving this gem a 5 star review is that I’d selfishly like it to remain a hidden treasure! I can’t say enough amazing things about our stay at Cats camp. Vince was a picture perfect host and was quick to respond to any inquiries we had during our stay. We are already planning our next trip! Thank you again Vince for providing this amazing experience for us and others!

Little slice of heaven
Vince was a responsive and polite host. We communicated over Hipcamp chat and any questions were answered quickly. The camp itself is beautiful, private, but still easily accessible. I will certainly be back. 10/10 definitely recommend.

The campsite had everything we needed for the perfect balance of cozy and rustic. The directions to get down to the campsite were clear, and we had most everything we needed to cook up a delicious feast. It's also conveniently close to a lot of nature trails.

Perfect family getaway
Vince's place was just what we were looking for! It is rustic and yet, also fully quipped with everything you could ever need to make a wonderful nature getaway. We loved the open air kitchen design with the beautiful stone fireplace and comfy rocking chair. It was also perfectly shaded for our high temp days... and the setup of the outdoor table has a divine air flow. We opted to cook our dinner over the adjustable open fire pit off that sits along the grass line. Our kids loved setting the slide up on the grassy hill as my husband dumped buckets of cold fresh spring water on their heads. The spring house was awesome and we all took a morning cold plunge in the fresh water. The swings and toys were perfect... frog hunting in the pond and exploring the area. Good thing we had the bunk house because it unexpectedly rained pretty hard during the night and we were perfectly dry and safe from the elements. Be aware though, rain on that tin roof is loud! If it were our place, the one thing we would re-think was the toilet setup (currently a handicap toilet commode) Off grid toilets are a tricky thing to navigate anyhow... But I think we would dig a pit and set up an outhouse with sawdust, etc. Its really no big deal but the only thing I would give a "heads up" to others about. We couldn't have asked for a better stay and will definitely be back!
