First family canoe trip

We really enjoyed our stay with Sue & all the amenities her property had to offer. The main reason I booked with Sue was for dog reasons. We brought our dog, who isn’t the friendliest with other dogs. A lot of hipcamp site descriptions I read previously alluded to the fact that the host or other campers would have off-leash dogs. Sue’s description clearly noted that her dogs would be contained in a fenced-in area and that put our minds at ease. She even has part of the fence tarped off so dogs can’t see each other and that kept all parties happy & safe.

We set up our tent under a big tree and it was a very short walk down to the river. We were able to take the canoe out a couple times and paddle around on the beautiful Chester river. As “city slickers” it was our first time in a canoe with our dog and we had a blast.

We forgot to bring matches for the fire and Sue was quick to respond via text and brought some right out. Thanks Sue!! Appreciate you!

Canoein' Sue's exceed expectations! My buddy and I did a quick weekend trip over one night to fish. We caught a ton of catfish using her canoe. We used her firewood which was very convenient and we enjoyed having the picnic table. We would be back if we can make it out again!

We got a way with words and could row on forever about the universe and how your always right where your supposed to be. When we found ourselves in Sue's path. We were once again given the gift of recognizing that within seconds of meeting this beautiful host. Her patch of property couldn't be more perfect for any camping. The wholesome yet wild n free that Sues place exudes. The feels are perseverance, planning and pure joy here. But even that doesn't hold a candle to the shine inside her as a host & human being. There's updates taking place on outdoor bathroom n shower. Yard is flat n partly shaded. River is cool and we loved our trip out. saw eagles! Fire ring, picnic table. Her pups are well mannered n quite. We're traveling across country. This was our first stop n I could have stayed longer.. but, it's time..Much love from us to you! You are part of our journey forever more

Sue was so sweet! We loved this little spot and we were so glad she provided the canoes and little games by the fire.

Canoein' Sue's was an amazing site with an amazing host. Everything was exactly as listed on the site, and her amenities were more than what you get from a typical hipcamp. The included canoe was a big plus and so fun for the kids. We will be back!

It was a great time! We could easily fit our 28 foot fifth wheel camper and it was right off the highway which was super convenient. Sue was very accommodating and happy to answer any questions we may have had

We had a lovely time here. We canoed up and down the river, it’s very peaceful and pretty. Sue was friendly and interesting, we would definitely recommend a camp over here.

Short camping weekend on the eastern shore for the Kent County farm fair and a bit of R&R. Nice, safe spot on Sue's land with lots of amenities offered, including canoe of course. Too hot for us on the water this trip but we'll definitely do that next time. The cool shower tent was a LIFE SAVER after the heat of the day. This weekend was a scorcher but we enjoyed regardless. Give it a go!

We loved canoeing down the scenic stream with our dog Marco. Sue even gave Marco a doggie life vest to borrow which made us feel better for his first canoe trip. We also liked that we did not have to pack our kayaks as they would not fit in RV so nice of Sue let us borrow the canoe. We also loved the privacy with all the trees and Sue was so friendly to talk to. She hung out with us for a bit before we headed out on the river. We would have loved to have a fire but it rained in the night so we had to put a fire on our video with sound instead. We were happy to have the water and electric hook up for our RV as we boon docked the night before for our triathlon race. It was relaxing and peaceful to hang out under the shade trees after racing.

Sometimes you have to counterbalanceConsolation fire on our screen with sound as it rained. 😀Relaxing under the shade tree with Marco trying out his life vest before canoeing Marcos first canoe trip.
