This is one of the most beautiful places to live or visit in Vermont.  My home for the past 40 years has been right next to a stunning waterfall and brook.  I love sharing this space with others.  Your visit here will allow you many choices of ways to relax.  My land abuts the 700 acres of school property behind me and I have trail and path access right from my yard to many miles of an old road bed for walking, biking, hiking, or exploring the length of the brook.  There is a waterfall across the street and there are at least 5 different swimming holes and the water is cold and refreshing!  I am 20 minutes from the state capital, Montpelier, Vt.  There is a pizza/restaurant/bar in my town just 6 minutes away.  If you camp here you will feel like you are in a forest, but will be able to drive anywhere with ease.

It was a great campsite for overnight camping. Katherine was a great host explaining all about the place. Something can be improved ate the table and chairs. There are leaves and dirt on many chairs.

Great spot!
Our host Katherine was so kind and welcoming, and showed us around when we arrived. We stayed at site #3, which was clean, spacious, private and had at least two nice sheltered spots for tents. We appreciated having our own path down to the parking area. The creek and waterfalls were just beautiful and only a short walk from our site - the sound was so soothing at night and we enjoyed taking our breakfast to the creek to sit on a rock and hang out by the falls and sip our coffee. Hoping to return in warm weather sometime to make use of those swimming holes! Everything about the sites was well thought out and Katherine was just lovely, very thoughtful and gave us a good local restaurant recommendation for dinner when we had a rainy evening. I’m sure we’ll be back!

Lovely little site right by the brook! Nice hikes nearby, Katherine offers free spring water that you can grab anytime. Surprisingly not many mosquitoes flying around! FYI the brook does cool the area around so prepare accordingly! Everything I needed was provided, and Katherine was a delight to talk to

Katherine was an excellent host! She was very helpful explaining the features of her property, checking in to see how we were doing, and helping provide us with firewood, toiletry items, etc. The surrounding property was awesome. Lots of nice trails and a beautiful brook to swim in.

Wish we could have stayed longer!
Booked this site to go tent camping with 7 friends and had such a good experience. Kathy gave us thorough instructions on anything we might need to know about the trail, brook spots, etc. We were able to comfortably fit 4 tents on our site. Lots of mushrooms to look at on the trails, and great background noise of the brook that you can hear from your tent. Kathy made sure we felt welcome and it was a very clean site.

I’d return and recommend!
I enjoyed the privacy of campsite #3. The best part about Katherine’s place is the stunning brook which we cooled off in a few times.

Kathie was a fabulous host! We loved campsite #3! Highlights were falling asleep to the sound of the brook, exploring the trails and swimming in a beautiful secluded spot right onsite! We will definitely be back and the dogs were on heaven! Thank you for a lovely visit Kathie!

Great access to multiple river spot
Amazing location for families or big groups! With three sites to choose from there is something for everyone. Our host was very accommodating and the sites were well maintained. There are multiple access points to river spots that you will have all to yourself. These spots have plenty of spotsnon shore to hangnout. Swim able and exploration spots are everywhere!

Wonderful peaceful camping
Campsite was absolutely beautiful! Private and so peaceful with the sounds of the creek. The creek itself was awesome! We enjoyed wading in it and swimming next to the “hidden beach”. The chipmunks running around were a lot of fun to watch and very friendly. Katherine is a wonderful hostess, she’s attentive but yet gives you your privacy. Highly recommend camping here!

Awesome spot with really incredible streams, pools, and waterfalls. The bathroom situation was a bit rugged, but was fine for one night and we had a great time exploring!

We enjoyed two nights stay at Kathy's site. The site is beautiful and the nearby brook provides ambient sound. Kathy is very nice and friendly. She showed us a map of nearby trails, and swimming holes that are within 15-min walk. Will definitely come back with friends next time. It's also the first time I take my dog tent camping - the site is dog-friendly/dog-safe and she had a blast time.

The campsite is great, nice quite area to relax and enjoy some family time. The river and waterfall running in the background makes for a peaceful sleep. The campsite are a great size. The woods around the property have great trails to hike and swim in the river.

True Camping experience
It was a great experience, the site was great. We had site 1 next to the beautiful Brook the runs along the property. There is so much privacy you are comfortable being in the Brook as you see fit. We were there 8 nights and we could not be more grateful for Katherine’s concern if we were comfortable to making sure we had what we needed. It truly is a peaceful serine environment. Also, we toured the local towns and drove into Burlington while the Festival of Fools was taking place and that too was amazing with all of the street vendors and live artists performing all types of performances from music to acrobats. A great time to say the least. A true experience.

Best Nature Campsite!
This site and the surrounding property were just perfect! Katherine has put a ton of work into making sure her guests have a great experience. Within a 5 minute walk of the site there are multiple absolutely magical and beautiful swimming holes that felt pretty private and had some of the cleanest river water I've ever seen. Depending on where you go and how much rain there's been there are spots where the water is at least waist deep. The waterfall directly across the street was so fun! And the secret beach location through the woods had a perfect hammock spot for chilling by the river. The site itself was large and had flat spots for tents. The outhouse set up at each site is great! There is a hose a short walk away for drinking water and dish washing. There are garbage, recycling bins on site as well. There is some sort of table/chairs at each site. While you can't drive your car directly onto the site, it's literally like 25 yards to walk your gear in. Katherine is super chill and kept reminding us that she just wants everyone to have a fun time and enjoy themselves! We loved it here!!

Katherine was great and helpful, she even gave us a map of the property with all the swimming holes. The main waterfall is amazing! Camp spot two and three are pretty close together but there was a wall in between so it was still private. It was a great experience!

Katherine's generosity of sharing her space is not to be missed. She was welcoming, informative, and by all means an amazing amazing host. The space she provides has everything that you might want, hiking trails through lush woods, a brook that has swimming holes, cascades, and a wonderful overlook. If we are ever in the area again we will definitely be stopping back to stay. 👍💖🙂

We stayed at the tuckaway site, which offered a nice amount of privacy and coverage from the sun too. The easy access to the brook and waterfalls is a definite bonus to this already lovely campground. Plus, the host, Katherine, is a delight offering all the needed information for the surrounding areas.

We stayed at site 3 which was huge. Close by parking and the trails are well maintained. We didn’t walk them all but maybe next time. There is water across the road and it’s refreshing. Potable water is a short walk to the back of the house. It’s a short drive off Route 2 and a nice place to get away.

First time camping!
Just wow, Katherine was beyond amazing from the moment I sent in my request to book this place to the moment we drove away from the campsite. You cannot miss out on this gem of a place and amazing host. It is the perfect summer weekend getaway location! My group of 10 people had the most amazing time here!

My group and I had an amazing time at Kathy's would absolutely recommend checking out any of her 3 sites! We stayed for 2 nights in site #2, we had neighbors one night didnt even know they were there. Her property is so beautiful being able to sleep under the stars and listen to the waterfall while drifting off to sleep is so grounding and peaceful. From the get go she was so kind and helpful. There was a map and helpful notes, she offered to take us on a walk to show us where to find all the spots. Checked in with us to see how we were just a wonderful woman! She even took some pictures of us all in her beautiful garden! 😊 Huge thank you Kathy we enjoyed our camping trip so much! Truly grateful you shared your beautiful treasure with us!

The #3 site is the most private. You are close to site #2 but the trees and wood wall provide enough privacy. Clean. Comfortable. Waterfall across the road was the perfect sound to fall asleep to. Water was super clean and fun to splash around in. All in all, very relaxing and would recommend.
