I’ll start with the pros.
Deb was very helpful leading up to our trip and Dale helped us navigate the soggy grass when we pulled in the RV. It has been raining for days, but they are fully prepared with a level gravel pad for RVs/trailers. Thankfully, we got it parked and hooked up to electric. The water hookup is down the hill, so make sure your fresh water tank is filled before parking in the RV spot. Dale was happy to help us get filled up, and we don’t go through water that quickly, so we didn’t have a reason to be connected to water. It was so fun to wake up and hear the cows mooing.
That said, the listing says that there is a bathroom and shower available, but this is not the case. I asked Deb about using the facilities when we were settling in and she advised that there is no bathroom or shower on site. We were hoping to shower because our hot water tank only holds enough water for a 5 minute shower. Hopefully the listing gets corrected so no one else ends up in the same situation.
If you’re in an RV and want to go out for dinner nearby, we were able to get an Uber.
We didn't actually end up staying at the site because our kids rental had more space than we thought, but we met the host and saw the site. Deb was most welcoming, and very responsive any time we reached out. The site is lovely, with pastures and cows, and we would definitely stay there in our camper van next time we're in the area again.
Perfect ending to a long day
Deb and Dale were amazing, and they better hosts than I ever could have asked for! I was coming in a little late on my bike, and perfectly fine with walking, they offered to come pick me up for the last mile or so (I was walking it up a big hill) and after many miles on my bike that day it was just the kindest gesture. They were so friendly, kind, and welcoming and gave me to full run down of everything Utica... Which I really loved. I showed up exhausted and tired, but I feel like I left having made new friends. 13/10
Very welcoming hosts. Even though I arrived relatively late after sunset, Deb and Dale came out of their house to greet me, asked me if I need anything, and even offered me a camping light for the night. Would definitely come back without hesitation, highly satisfied.
Our stay was safe & quiet!
Deb was very good at communicating with us. We were looking for a quick and COVID-safe place to stay as we traveled across New York via the thruway. Deb met us when we rolled in and directed us to our overnight spot. This was our first experience with HipCamp and it was great!
