Erin was super welcoming and provided us with more than we ever expected! We booked this campsite for the night before the 2024 Solar Eclipse, which happened to be about 4 days after the area got some huge snowfall. We are always extra cautious about weather conditions so we brought our warmest gear and some extra blankets for insurance. When we arrived Erin provided clear instructions on where to park, and met up with us to show us the campsite. It’s a short walk on a trail behind their house (about 10mins in slushy conditions if you’re carrying stuff). He provided us with fresh drinking water, had a little hand washing station set up outside the outhouse, and even let us use some of his firewood. The campsite had been cleared of snow and the family were very courteous and made some suggestions to help make the stay more comfortable. An amazing trip overall!

Erin was a great host! There was plenty of secluded space, and a fire ring! Erin was super accommodating and even supplied things like firewood and drinking water.

Erin and his family were outstanding hosts and were very kind and thoughtful. Erin responded quickly to any messages we had and provided us with a camp fire upon our arrival! The property is close to Montpelier but far away enough that you feel like you are in the wilderness! Would definitely recommend! ⛺️

Nice, quiet spot in the woods. Small hike up and down a hill to the site.

As soon as you pull into turtle hill, you can sense how deeply Erin and his family care for the land. We really appreciated how courteous and helpful he was when we arrived. The camping spot was perfect for our weekend visit to Vermont. There were lots of birds and small mushrooms all around.

I would recommend this place to anyone! Best location in town! My husband and I came into town later than expected and they were very accommodating to us even though we arrived 2 hours later than expected! It was everything we needed in a beautiful location :)
