Pitch your tent next to our spring-fed pond that is home to rainbow and native brook trout and frequently visited by wild ducks and blue heron. Enjoy ample shade by day and a fire in the fire ring and some of the best stargazing at night. The main house is across a footbridge, so you have ultimate privacy. We are abiding by strict social distancing procedures, so our contact will be extremely limited at this time.  You may be visited by our good natured Labrador Sawdust and our sweet Great Pyrenees Ivory.  We are asking that people avoid touching our dogs as much as possible during the cover 19 outbreak, and if you do touch them please wipe them with your sanitizing wipe.  We are frequently wiping them with sanitizer on a cloth as well to prevent spread of the virus through contact with the animals and appreciate your cooperation in this.  We are also asking that people take their trash with them so we are not risking contamination from handling other peoples items.  The mature black pine on the edge of the forest was brought to this country in the boot of a young girl from the Black Pine Forest of Germany!

Stunning location and quite private for a much needed overnight under the stars. We got in a good hike on the nearby trails that are a short drive from the property, so definitely bring your boots along. Everyone we met was quite friendly, and had a great morning walk with the resident dog, Ivory. The site has a creek with two paired muscovy ducks who are great neighbors for your stay. We're so grateful to have had this experience and will certainly return for another unplug.

Enjoyed my visit to the End of the rainbow. Lovely spot with friendly, helpful hosts and dog.
The camp spots are well cared for. Plenty of room to explore.

Campfire by the pond. If you are lucky you might see the bats as they come out looking for supper. Saying hello to the locals on a late afternoon stroll.Ivory is very friendly. She was the first to greet me upon arrival.

There are a few large open fields to spread out your camping equipment and stargaze. There’s a huge open field by the horse fence and chicken coop with unobstructed view of the open skies. The chorus of bullfrogs makes me feel I’m deep in the woods even though we’re close to civilization. The fire pit and picnic table by the stream, partially enclosed by trees give privacy and shade. I would definitely return with more friends!

Beautiful location, wide open space (recommend bringing a sun/rain tarp for shelter-- our 10x13 overhead tarp made our stay comfortable through the very hot sun followed by thunderstorms).
Picnic table right next to the stream that feeds into the pond, where ducks played and concert of frogs.
Erin and his family were very gracious hosts inviting us to walk through the farm, which includes an amazing stone circle on the other end of the farm (captured an aerial photo from the website).
After one of the thunderstorms, there was actually a large rainbow over our site!
The port-a-potty had just been serviced, but is a bit of a hike away from the campsite. There was a pump for potable water outside one of the barns.
Very little Verizon cell phone coverage (need to enable roaming).
We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would highly recommend Rainbows End!

Plenty of freshly cut grass and easy-to-access toilet/water. The friendly host appeared on Forged in Fire season two, episode seven, and can be sweet-talked into a tour of the shop.

Beautiful land. Nice fire pit and even nicer hosts. Felt comfortable and safe. And also felt secluded.
