Serene, quiet, forests & meadows, rocky areas of upstate New York- amazing natural getaway from the city- take a retreat with your loved ones & tune into the mysteries of the seasons.

Site 1 is accessible trough a wetland. Rubber boots are strongly advised! It is in the forest between trees. Leave vehicles on 2nd driveway by the road. Walk to tent site is about 5 minutes. There is no possibility to drive closer to Site 1. 

Site 2 is on top of a rocky/gravel hill top terrace. It is pretty rocky,  bring a foam under your sleeping bag. Leave vehicles on 1st driveway or if you have a Jeep you can park one level lower next to our yurt, 1 minute walk to site.

Important: You can only drive closer to Site 2 if you have a 4wheel drive Jeep or pick up truck. Then walk 1 minute to campsite. Technically, it’s best to park car or truck on entry driveway, especially if it’s been raining. Can get very muddy and slippery. Regular cars won’t make it. You can leave those by the road on the 1st driveway. Then you have to walk to tent site about 8 minutes.

We just recently get this land so we are in the process of cleaning it from occasional junk you might see from previous research outpost owners. It will be pristine again soon!

(Again, 1st driveway parking (with gate) is for site 2, and 2nd driveway parking (without gate) is for site 1.)

Very nice area. Rustic, though. You either have to carry your stuff for about a 5 minute walk or you need an all wheel drive vehicle to drive up to the site. The owners were nice and helpful. Town nearby (6 miles) to get anything you need

Private and peaceful. I would go back.

What a beautiful piece of property, a lot closer to town than I expected but that doesn’t mean you can see town or anything, just convenient if you forgot something. Site two was awesome and I really loved driving my jeep up the property. Hosts were incredibly nice and even found my wireless speaker and drove out to meet me. Incredibly accommodating and nice people with beautiful land.

We stayed at campsite 2. It was beautiful, secluded and much larger than we expected which was a plus. Plenty of room to play frisbee and let the dog run around. I was able to drive up to the upper level which made the walk to the site an easy minute or two but if you have a small car and park at the bottom be aware that lugging your stuff to the top will be a work out.

We stayed at site #3 and it was lovely and secluded in the woods. Plenty of space and we didn’t see anyone else. The only surprise was that the site was a 5-7 min walk uphill from the car, which created a challenge because we brought a large water tank since there’s no water at the site. Knowing this would have helped to prepare.

Very nice secluded spot! Worked out perfectly for us, and was exactly what we were hoping for.

We stayed in camp #3, the one picture with the firepit.

FYI: If you don't have 4X4, its a 5 min walk uphill to the site from where you park by the road. The flat ground where the tent goes was a bunch of small gravel, very comfy to sleep on actually, but we couldn't get stakes in. Didn't affect us as the weather was perfect, but if the forecast calls for rain when you're here, maybe gather up nearby heavy rocks and bring twine to anchor your tent's rainfly.

Didn't see any yetis! Haha
