Great last minute camping adventure
Beautiful campsite and horse farm. Gail was very accommodating to us at the last minute. We loved walking the property and had a very cozy night on a bed of leaves. Loved interacting with the horses Meridian and Ginsing. They were very calm and sociable to me and my 8 year old son.

We loved tent camping at Galleywinter! Gail was so responsive, accommodating and kind. The grounds are lovingly maintained and watching the horses was a special treat. The outhouse and water spigot are nice amenities. It’s also very easy to find! We’ll definitely be back.

Wonderful stay! Beautiful and relaxing property, Gail is a very thoughtful host who took care of everything and even introduced us to the horses! The site is a great size, pretty private with a great fire pit, Adirondack chairs and a grill. Highly recommend the firewood and fresh farm eggs!! Thank you Gail!!
