Our Back property sprawls across acres of rolling hills and postcard vistas. The farm and tasting room are the upstate outposts of Philadelphia's Second District Brewing. Each weekend during the summer, the tasting room is open to the public with a rotating draft selection and outside wood-fired menu, most of it sourced directly on the farm. We offer a number of leave-no-trace Back Country sites for a truly unique remote getaway. All campsites and the Tiny Cabin are walk-in sites. We are available to shuttle your gear to/from your campsite between these hours: Fridays 9am - 7pm Saturdays 9am - 3pm Sundays 8am - 11am Safety Guidelines: 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦 Emergency Procedure In addition to 911, the nearest hospital is Wayne County Memorial Hospital with a 24 hour Emergency Room located at 601 Park St. Honesdale, PA 18431 | (570) 253-8100 ⚡ Minimize hazards Wear appropriate clothing. Use Sunscreen and Insect Repellent. Maintain a clean camp site. All trash should be carried out when you leave. 📢 Please respect other campers. Quiet Hours 11:00pm to 8:00am. 🐕 We love when Hipcampers are allowed to bring their pets, but it’s important to understand that you must keep your pets in your control, keep them from causing harm, and ensure they’re reasonably quiet during quiet hours. Wild Animal - Safety Warnings All it takes is one wrong move in the woods and you could have an unwanted guest at your campsite. Here’s a list of 10 things you can do to keep your family camping trip safe and secure from potentially dangerous animals. 1. Eliminate odors from food and supplies Black bears roam all over the Pocono Mountains with a population of more than 18,000 in the Poconos alone, making them a common concern amongst campers. It’s not only trash that will attract a bear; toiletry items such as toothpaste, soap, lotions, deodorant or bug sprays (especially citronella) should be secured from bears as well. To keep your food, supplies and gear away from bears, there are several different ways to keep them out of a bears reach. You could keep them in a hard-sided vehicle, a certified food storage container, or put it all in a bag and hang it between two trees at least 10 feet from the ground. 2. Stop by the store and grab the basics Stock up your packs with flashlights and bear spray to keep in the tent at night. Flashlights can always be useful to help find things and point you in the right direction when walking at night. The bear spray, on the other hand, is a purchase that you most likely and hopefully will never use but is something worth having for that extra piece of mind when you hear rustling in the woods. 3. Get loud! It might seem strange, but being loud will keep many of the furry creatures out of sight. With that said, if you have close-by neighbors, don’t cause a full out ruckus. The sounds of the campfire crackling, voices, and other man-made sounds like car engines usually do the trick in scaring off wildlife. 4. Keep pets on leash… always As much as you may love and trust your pets to stay close by, it’s not worth the risk of letting them roam off on their own. An alternative to always holding the other end of the leash is buying a spiral stake to put in the ground to keep the pup close by while granting him or her a little freedom to roam. Keep in mind Birds of Prey are all around. You may even spot a bald eagle or two during your stay. Keep in mind these majestic birds of prey won’t think twice about snatching your small dog. 5. Be ready for the non-furry threats When it comes to snakes, be particularly careful if you move logs or brush as most snakes get to moving when their environment is tampered with. If snakes are a high concern of yours in a particular area, consider wearing sturdy boots and gloves when moving such things. 6. Keep your distance Most animals will scare off easily from a far distance. However, in the instance of getting a bit too close to a bear or other animal, you should brush up on what to do in the event that you are in a face-to-face situation. While these circumstances are extraordinarily rare, it is better to be prepared than to make a wrong move. 7. Wear different clothes cooking and to bed Have you ever gone to a restaurant and can distinctly smell the food even hours after you’ve left? The same happens in the wilderness. Cooking smells cling to fabric and can attract bears, making the clothes you wore while making dinner not the best pajamas. Store your “cooking clothes” in an airtight bag or container to reduce the risk of any wildlife catching a whiff. 8. Keep it clean Your campsite, that is. Continuously making an effort to scrub pots and pans and picking up trash throughout the day’s adventures will work wonders in making it less of a task to keep your site pest free. 9. Consider a bear proof cooler, especially for car camping Definitely not necessary, but it is a precaution that might be suitable for some. If your cooler is on its last leg and you are looking for an upgrade, there are always certified bear tested coolers that are sure to keep your food and beverages cold and the bears locked out. 10. Know the area you are in One of the sharpest tools you can have up against wildlife is knowledge and familiarity with the woods you will be setting up camp in. For information on the wildlife in the area, you can seek out tips from the local park ranger or wildlife official. Getting outdoors for a camping adventure is an enjoyable, freeing experience that is almost never dangerous, but it certainly doesn’t hurt to be prepared in the event of an unlikely guest. Staying safe from poisonous plants while camping just got easier! Poison ivy and poison oak, spread across most of North America, can ruin a perfectly good camping trip. These dangerous plants can be found almost anywhere when camping, whether in open fields, wooded areas, roadsides, or riverbanks. Poison oak and poison ivy trigger an itchy rash on contact. Worse, if the leaves get into a campfire , the same chemical can get into your lungs, causing extreme pain which may require medical attention. Campground owners and operators should always be conscious of their campers’ safety. Though most experienced campers can recognize poison oak and poison ivy and avoid accidental contact, a novice might rely only on posted warnings near the plants. Our Poison Ivy and Poison Oak Warning Signs provide clear and concise warnings for campers, helping them have a safe and stress-free camping experience. Prevent Lyme Disease Before gardening, camping, hiking, or just playing outdoors, make preventing tick bites part of your plans. Lyme disease is spread by the bite of an infected tick. In the United States, an estimated 476,000 infections are diagnosed and treated each year. If you camp, hike, work, or play in wooded or grassy places, you could be bitten by an infected tick. People living in or visiting the mid-Atlantic states, and the upper Midwest are at greatest risk. Infected ticks can also be found in neighboring states and in some areas of Northern California, Oregon and Washington. But you and your family can prevent tick bites and reduce your risk of Lyme disease. Protect Yourself from Tick Bites Know where to expect ticks. Blacklegged ticks (the ticks that cause Lyme disease) live in moist and humid environments, particularly in and near wooded or grassy areas. You may get a tick on you during outdoor activities around your home or when walking through leaves and bushes. To avoid ticks, walk in the center of trails and avoid walking through tall bushes or other vegetation. Repel ticks on skin and clothing. Use Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-registered insect repellents containing DEET, picaridin, IR3535, oil of lemon eucalyptus, para-menthane-diol, or 2-undecanone. EPA’s helpful search tool can help you find the product that best suits your needs. Always follow product instructions. Parents should apply this product to their children, avoiding hands, eyes, and mouth. Use products that contain permethrin on clothing. Treat clothing and gear, such as boots, pants, socks and tents with products containing 0.5% permethrin. It remains protective through several washings. Pre-treated clothing is available and may be protective longer. • The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has an online tool to help you select the repellent that is best for you and your family. • For detailed information about preventing ticks on pets and in your yard, see Lyme Disease Prevention and Control. • For detailed information for outdoor workers, see NIOSH Safety and Health Topic: Tick-borne Diseases. Perform Daily Tick Checks Check your body for ticks after being outdoors, even in your own yard. Search your entire body for ticks when you return from an area that may have ticks. Use a hand-held or full-length mirror to view all parts of your body and remove any tick you find. Take special care to check these parts of your body and your child’s body for ticks: • Under the arms • In and around the ears • Inside the belly button • Back of the knees • In and around all head and body hair • Between the legs • Around the waist Check your clothing and pets for ticks because they may carry ticks into the house. Check clothes and pets carefully and remove any ticks that are found. Place clothes into a dryer on high heat to kill ticks. Remove Attached Ticks Quickly and Correctly Remove an attached tick with fine-tipped tweezers as soon as you notice it. If a tick is attached to your skin for less than 24 hours, your chance of getting Lyme disease is extremely small; however, other diseases may be transmitted more quickly. Over the next few weeks, watch for signs or symptoms of Lyme disease such as rash or fever. See a healthcare provider if you have signs or symptoms. For more information, see tick removal. Be Alert for Fever or Rash Even if you don’t remember being bitten by a tick, an unexpected summer fever or odd rash may be the first signs of Lyme disease, particularly if you’ve been in tick habitat. See your healthcare provider if you have symptoms. Prevent Ticks on Animals Prevent family pets from bringing ticks into the home by limiting their access to tick-infested areas and by using veterinarian-prescribed tick prevention products on your dog. Create Tick-safe Zones in Your Yard Modify your landscaping to create “Tick-Safe Zones.” It’s pretty simple. Keep patios, play areas, and playground equipment away from shrubs, bushes, and other vegetation. Regularly remove leaves, clear tall grasses and brush around your home, and place wood chips or gravel between lawns and wooded areas to keep ticks away from recreational areas (and away from you). • Use a chemical control agent. Use acaricides (tick pesticides) to reduce the number of ticks in treated areas of your yard. However, you should not rely on spraying to reduce your risk of infection. • Discourage deer. Deer are the main food source of adult ticks. Keep deer away from your home by removing plants that attract deer and by constructing barriers (like a fence) to discourage deer from entering your yard and bringing ticks with them. Natural Environment Please respect the beautiful natural surroundings you are inhabiting. You will undoubtedly see a numbers of friendly neighbors like Fox, Deer, Wild Turkeys, Beavers, Ducks and maybe even a Bald Eagle or two. We ask that you respect all animals within your site. We hope you have a fun and relaxing visit!

This place was amazing! Drove 3 hours from Philadelphia and it was worth every minute. Grounds are beautiful, brewery had great beer and pizza (and beer pretzel), campsites were well thought out and Ron is amazing. He went above and beyond to cart us to and from the site and help us get everything setup. Cannot recommend this place enough

Camping with toddler and pup!
Great great great stay at Second District! The site was spacious and private. The grounds were clean and well kept. The day cabin was cute but we didn’t use it during our time. Great spot with our toddler and dog for the weekend. Loved that there was so much space to walk and cold beer and delicious pizza just a stroll away. Be prepared, the walk to the bathroom and water is a bit of a distance but it’s there! Site got plenty of sunlight to charge our solar gear. We will absolutely be back!!

Wonderful weekend
Our annual trip was fantastic. Second year in a row we camped here. This site is tucked away, so you feel isolated, but it's a short walk up to the tasting room and bathrooms. The people who run the brew farm are so welcoming and friendly. It has a great family vibe and is quiet at night. Even for a day trip, it's a beautiful location. And the beer is delicious. The pizza was also fantastic. Dave Portnoy should go here for a review. I can't recommend this place enough.

Relaxing farm camp!
Beautiful and tranquil farm. Camping spots were great. The walk to the sites was about 10 minutes and after the first trip it felt like a breeze! The staff all made the experience great. Ron especially! Outdoor showers are the best.
