The 10 acre field is open, partially mowed & offers apples in the fall! The view of the mountain is really nice. Enjoy the fire pit or walk through the 60 acres of woods. Please note, my house is located on the road, in the front corner of the field. It is possible to camp in the field a spot such that you do not have to see my house. You can also camp just behind the field in maple trees (there's a clear path). The other option is to walk into the back back woods and fashion yourself a place to camp if you are feeling a bit more rugged / adventurous - there are paths but they are not newly installed / groomed (originally created for logging activities a long time ago so - rugged). There's a brook at the far side of my property which goes all along the back edge. Nearby Norway Lake is great for swimming, boating, kayaking, etc (public boat launch is an easy drive). This is a great place for road running as well (or road biking if you can handle the hills).
Note that the field is a field; there's no road laid in. I can drive into fine in my Sienna but if you have a really low car you might have to walk it.
This is rustic camping! There's no electricity or running water. I can provide a 5 gal jug of spring water for drinking / fire dousing (please let me know in advance if you will need this so I can go to the spring). You should have full cell signal in the middle of the field and in the high points in the back woods (but definitely it drops out in the lower points). There is a barn that is occasionally available for eating / camping; there is electricity & wifi in there as well as lights and tables. There's an extra charge for this & please inquire about availability.
Also, very dog friendly - please bring your dogs! Let me know if you'd like me to leave some snow fencing out for you to fashion a bit of an enclosed area. I have some agility equipment & all kinds of mushing equipment if your pup might be interested. Happy to do mini demos / lessons for a small extra fee. I have a spare GPS set up that can be rented while you are onsite. Can also offer dog sitting if you want to go out to dinner / etc and not bring your pup.

We camped at Carissa's for one weeknight away from Portland with our dog. It was so relaxing and wonderful to have a night with the stars and a field of beautiful wildflowers.
Carissa's directions were super helpful and we were so thankful to be there! Thanks!
Lovely stay during a rainy weekend
We had such a great time staying here! It was a rainy weekend but lovely nonetheless, Carissa even let us use her EZ Up for $5! The field was lovely with the trees surrounding and our dog loved it. This place would be even better with nicer weather as you could walk around the trails out back and enjoy it a bit more. She also had some great recommendations for our trip to adjust to the weather (Oxbow beer garden is delicious). Absolutely fantastic area and Carissa was very nice but our tent site was still very private feeling.
Nice site, great host, dog approved
Awesome camping trip! Host was very accommodating and friendly to us and our pup- will be booking again in the future. Had a wonderful time at the lake and local brewery just a 10 minute drive away and when the clouds cleared the stars were beautiful in the field where the fire pit is on an elevated rock. If you are looking for a simple camp away with options to get more woodsy this is the spot.
