10 acres of forest, covered in impressive rock and boulder formations. This land is kept purposely wild for those seeking a true back-to-nature / backcountry experience. Located in the beautiful, rural, farming town of Ashfield. The surrounding areas have lots to offer as well. 

CAMPING OPTIONS:

Plentiful street parking. There is a small gravel driveway that any car could get into, and there is a longer dirt pull around and road that goes back up into the property that would require a good off road vehicle and some chutzpah. My Honda Pilot gets up and down the road but its not pretty! Use with caution!

So - Here are your options ... 

1. Park in the gravel / dirt driveway and set up camp nearby for easy, accessible, car camping with one very large tent or several smaller ones. 

2. Park your SMALL RV / camper / or van (leveling required!) and enjoy the rest of the 10 acres on foot. Caution pulling forward on the dirt driveway there are some rocks/roots/stumps!

3. Tent camping. This gives you the most options. If you have small (probably max 4 person ) tents, there are lovely little spots to set those up all over the property. Walk back, wander around, even continue back up past where the road ends and there are magical little tent spots everywhere. 

What to know:

- No outhouse yet (currently building one) use proper waste disposal, catholes, etc.

- No designated fire area though fires are allowed just be SAFE! feel free to use up any downed branches, there are plenty! You will not need to buy firewood if you don't mind doing a little collecting. 

- No trash on site. Pack it in - pack it out and leave no trace. 

 Nearby enjoy: 

 - Hiking, biking, boating, paddling, climbing etc. 

DAR state forest (lake & trails), Chapel Ledge (climbing), Chapel falls (swimming) , The Deerfield River and ZOAR outdoor for white water adventures and zip lining. 

 - Ashfield Center has Elmers Store Restaurant, The Ashfield Lakehouse, and Country Pie. Spruce corner restaurant very close by in Goshen. 

- 20-30 min to very cute Shelburne Falls with the Glacial Potholes and Bridge of Flowers. 

- 30 mins to Northampton, MA high end and funky shopping, events, restaurants. 

- 37 mins to north adams MA (Berkshires), mt greylock (tallest peak in MA), MassMoCa very cool art museum / music venue. Fresh Grass music festival

- 30 mins to Greenfield - Green River Festival, Wormtown, Strangecreek.

- 52 mins to Tanglewood (Berkshires)

- 40 Mins Berkshire Mountains and Appalachian trail

The property itself is 10 wooded acres with no neighbors and rolling hills across the street. Only 1 party allowed in this forest at a time so enjoy 10 acres to yourselves and your furry friends. This land is truely magical with its rolling landscape, formidable boulders, and lush moss and trees. This is the ULTIMATE leaf peeping spot in the Fall. Come and enjoy the Ashfield Fall Festival!

Pack it in pack it out. You must be completely self sufficient. No bathrooms, cat-holes required. Plenty of (already downed only) wood to burn. Practice all eco friendly and sustainable measures in these woods.

Awesome piece of land! Alana was really communicative and quick to respond.
Definitely pushed my car to its limits but we made it up🤠
No better way to start your day than with a nice roam through the woods.

This is a nice hideaway tick back in the woods up a dirt road with a moderately steep section. Nice hiking. The day I was there it was raining which made the steep section difficult to ride on my fully laden motorcycle due to mud and lack of traction. So I stayed on the lower of several campsites - despite the rain, it was quiet and peaceful. I would stay there again - next time I will bring a Jeep! Super nice owner - cannot be more helpful and upbeat.

I was looking for a secluded place to solo camp and this was a great fit. You can either put your tent closer to the road or hike down the path a little and pitch there if you want to feel completely surrounded by nature. I recommend bringing one car unless you have a car that can go over rough terrain because you would have to pull one car further into the woods to fit two. If you want to make a fire, I suggest bringing a portable fire pit or plan to hunt for rocks in the woods to create a barrier because everything is covered in fallen leaves or wood and is probably pretty flammable. Since it was just me, I brought a smaller tent and didn’t have an issue finding a spot to pitch. I did notice there seemed to be space for a larger tent, however, previous renters had left things behind making it inaccessible at that time so I would double check on that before booking if you’re bringing a larger tent. Plan to bring your own water and be prepared to carry your gear because you have to leave your car at the entrance and walk into the woods a little before pitching your tent. AT&T has good service there but I don’t know about other carriers. Overall, I recommend this site for anyone who wants to have a secluded, relaxing experience while still being a reasonable distance from the rest of the town.

Thank you Kay! All great advise for campers. We have since gotten that spot cleared up so there is a spot for a larger tent down there. Thanks so much for staying and for taking the time to review :)
