Shaded Brookside Glen is a private, stream side, level, pull through site for a small RV, trailer, or tent. This is the private campsite we developed on our farm several years ago for when my wife and I need a little getaway, but don't have the time to travel. Shaded Brookside Glen is a level, mowed lawn surrounded by mature trees and bushes. Dry camping only, but a nice composting outhouse is easily available nearby. Water is available from the year round trout stream, but drinking water must be carried in. Shaded Brookside Glen has a picnic table, a metal fire pit, and limited fire wood is supplied. The drive to the site is across a grassy, mowed, well drained field, but can be effected by long periods of rain.

Forrest’s land was exactly as described - private, clean, convenient, shaded and right on a small stream. The site was very level and fit our 19 foot camper easily. The stream was a perfect place to get wet with our dog and the fire pit was awesome. There was plenty of fire wood and the outhouse was the cleanest we have ever seen. Thank you Forrest, we will be back!

Shaded brookside glen is a beautiful, private, and well equipped camping site. Plenty of space for tents and games. It was the perfect spot to unplug and spend quality time with the family. Highlights included exploring the creek, spooky stories around the campfire, and watching the beautiful firefly display in the meadow at night. We hope to return again.

Forrest and Jean are such informative, welcoming hipcamp hosts, my sister, her pup, and I loved camping on their farm property! Easy directions to follow lead up right to the site, and the chain-link gate was simple to open and close. We tent camped on a very hot May weekend, but the site had a constant southern breeze that was all shaded, so we kept cool- and we waded in the brook next to the camp! Mostly thigh high depth- we average 5'5". We appreciated the amazingly clean and well stocked outhouse, picnic table and firepit, as well as the pay-as-you go firewood which was right on site. Although it was a contactless check-in, my sister and I did venture over to the hosts farmhouse to ask for a few local tips since we had no cell service to text (AT&T) but once we were in the town of Lebanon we had full service, among other amenities. There were lots of ticks, but that's the same as anywhere in the state lately- we just checked ourselves constantly. Also some poison ivy along the water, but it's few and far between.

Forrest and Jeans land was perfect! The stream was great to hear at night when going to bed. Plenty of firewood, and more for sale if needed(honor system), The composting toilet was clean and well stocked. Firepit on property was perfect for our tripod camp grille. Beautiful property. Definitely will be back! Thank you both for a great time. -Dan and Jacob

The setting is really perfect, and Forrest has thought of everything. Absolutely private site with a picnic table, chairs, fire ring, fire wood, kindling, garbage can... and the cleanest "privy" I have ever seen. The brook is delightful, and when we stayed in November the sound of the fast moving brook was great to sleep to. It rained quite a bit one night while we were there, and the drive across the meadow was no problem at all. We were a little confused by the directions to the site... just note that the chained-off entrance to the site is only about 100 feet from the main road intersection, on the left, before a wooden bridge. The farm house is on the right, after the bridge. Perfect.

Steve has proven that Hipcamper's are the absolute best campers anywhere, anytime. After Steve departed the only evidence of his stay was trash, nicly bagged and deposited in the trash can we provide. Not so much as a small scrap of trash on the ground, everything in it's place. I suspect he even swept the stray leaves out of the outhouse. You are welcome back anytime, Steve. Happy Hipcamping. 😃

A perfect spot for rest and relaxing. We brought our 23 ft RV. Easy in and easy out with a really nice small gravel pad so you can park level. Very nice fire pit, and outhouse. Would available. Our dog loved playing in the brook. Would absolutely recommend.
