Site 1
Great spot. Convenient with powder room available. Be prepared to use a wagon to bring your stuff from the car to your site. But Tom supplies more than able wagons to use. It feels like you are on up state even though you are right outside coatesville. Tom loves the property and wants his campers to be comfortable. He is very knowledgeable and welcoming We will definitely be back

Great stay at site #2
Everything was perfect for my stay here. I had enough privacy and the grounds were beautiful. Close to the park and right next to a walking trail. The seclusion was just what I needed to unwind from busy city life for a few days. I would highly recommend to anyone.

Quaint, bucolic farm life camping
Tom was extremely helpful, friendly, and meticulous with his instructions. He has a lovely, very large property and the sites are spacious and have all the basics (chair, table, fire pit). They also have a little koi pond at each site which is neat. He has a little "store" where the bathroom is (bathroom is attached to his house), with little things like smore kits, bug spray, sodas, fresh eggs from his chickens, and more. Lots of farm life--goats, geese, chickens, horses (nearby), plus plenty of wildlife in the woods.
