This was an awesome camping site with everything we wanted (and a few extras!) It feels more remote than it is and is beautifully situated up on the land with the Weare Reservoir below. Lots of seating and benches around the camp fire and a cozy bunk bed with queen mattresses. Also well laid out with space for other tents if you brought friends along. We went towards the end of June and the weather was perfect. The tiki torches were awesome to have - helped with mosquitoes (which weren't that bad!) We brought an axe with us, but there was already one there. Spent a great day at Clough State Park 10 minutes away swimmin, fishing and kayaking. Took a great hike on Steve's land using the map he provided. We appreciated the extras you could pay for if you needed them (torch fluid, water, fire starters, etc. ) camping with kiddos can be stressful for us newbies and it helped to have those extras if we needed them. Only complaint was that an ATV was on the trail right by the camp at 10pm at night and it seemed ready to come right through our camp. It was pitch black so we didn't know who it was (I was in full mama bear mode ready with the axe lol) but they stayed on the lower part of the orange trail and drove right below the camp, not through (lucky them! LOLL)

Response from Steven, the Host, on July 2nd, 2021

I apologize for the neighbors, they do know that Old atv trail that passes by has been closed to motor traffic but lots of rental cottages explore anyway. I'm glad to hear that you had a great time and hope you visit again :)

Excellent camping site. I really appreciated the privacy we had back there. Steven had a very convenient set up with tools and supplies that made stay at his site very comfortable. And the tent is unbelievably nice!

Second winter stay -- lovely! The steep driveway up to the site was iced over and there was no way my car was going to get up it without snowtires and 4WD, but there was parking at the foot of the driveway and Steve left a sled for schlepping gear up (and offered to help ferry stuff, but our timing didn't mesh). The property has space for some good long walks in the woods (Steve loaned out snowshoes). The tent was cozy and set up nicely, warmed with the wood stove.

I stayed over from Christmas Eve for the weekend, and had the gamut from pouring rain to light snow to clear and cold. The tent held up to it all, stayed comfortable. Chilly when the fire was out, of course, but the wood stove made it nice and toasty. Steven's wood was good quality -- dried properly, so I had no trouble splitting it to make some dry kindling (everything around the site was wet wet wet from the snow and the rain I arrived in). The camp potty was...well, as described. It's camping, not a hotel, you know? Due to the temperature and rain, I didn't use the furniture, but Steven left snowshoes on site that I used for hiking, and the trails around the property were well-marked and pretty, with trees (well, yeah), some interesting rock formations (Steven mentioned two different types of granite across the width of the property) and a pretty vigorous little creek draining the hill the property is on. You will want snow tires, chains, or AWD to get up the last bit of the hill (I couldn't) -- but the walk's not bad if your car can't handle the steep bit. Steven did come by, so it wasn't quite no-contact, but he was masked and stayed a safe distance, and talked about the lengths he goes to clean between guests, so no covid concerns on my part. Awesome stay, and I'm likely to look for another date to take the kids this time!

Tent had dropped to about 20 overnight, so I jumped out of bed, started up the fire, and got back into the sleeping bag til  it warmed up. The cylinder stove took a little getting used to. Keep your wood forward so the heat doesn't go straight up the stovepipe!Trails were well-marked. It's wet because I was hiking in the rain. The property is on a hill, and there were multiple little creeks draining the property. Lost Boys Hideout - Summer Getaway

Great site! The stove in the tent kept us warm in freezing weather and the hiking trails on site we’re fun to explore.

The Lost Boys Hideout was just what our little family needed! We arrived later than expected on our first night and within minutes of arriving in the dark, Steven had stopped by to check on us and make sure we were navigating the site well. Very hospitable. We found the campsite to be very quaint and well equipped! We enjoyed quality family time, peace & quiet and some good old fashioned camping fun! We hope to visit again!
