#2 Riverside & Fire Ring
The campsite is surrounded by trees that provided a canopy of shade from the sun. You are only steps away from the bank of the Little Schuylkill River so feel free to cool off for a bit or drop a fishing line in the water. The hiking on the mountain behind the cottages has great views on top, you will work hard to get there but it is worth it!

Beautiful peaceful campsite!
I loved tent camping on Carolee's land. My family and I toured the trails around the beautiful property. The river was peaceful and kept my 3-year-old son busy the entire day!! Carolee was a great host and she came out to visit us upon arrival!

Lovely shady site on the stream
This site was lovely! Right between a the train tracks and a stream, we could watch a steam engine go by or float down the stream. The tent site is heavily shaded and very comfortable. There is an outhouse as a part of the village which was nice to use. Thank you to Oliver and Carolee for being so welcoming and for all the recommendations! We had such a great time.

Great spot along the creek. Wonderful host who never bothers you. We walked up to the village and met the host - really nice lady. Flexible with where you can camp and plenty of firewood around. Got a kick out of seeing the trains roll through the property. Miles upon miles of trails to explore. We will be back again - no complaints!

Had a great fall here!
Carolee and Oliver have a very beautiful set of property. Very unique in itself. The property is composed of four houses that used to be owned by the same family. The campsite are dispersed around those houses. Fire pits are provided and for a small fee so is dry firewood. This was super convenient as it had just rained in the area and we were able to have a nice roaring fire for the night. There is active train tracks visible from the campsite, so it will be a bit noisy, but it is super cool to see the steam train go through, among the red and orange leaves. The road is close to the river, so if you have those beautiful campsites, be ready for the noise. Otherwise, you have a unique property with two very attentive hosts who are always improving the campsite and their common areas. Extra bonus: The night sky is absolutely amazing.
