The land was magical. We tent camped next to the pond nestled between mountains. Staying in early September, we had fields of goldenrod and fall wildflowers. I have never seen stars so clearly, and the sun rises and sun sets were breathtaking as well. We saw two bald eagles, and were delighted when we awoke one morning to thousands of dragonflies filling the fields. The early mornings were lovely, waking up to heavy fog settled and then watching it move across the land as the sun got higher in the sky. We took the opportunity to walk the property which is so excellently maintained. The creek was full of fossils and was very fun for the kids too explore. Joe is a wonderful host, very welcoming and kind and he even took the kids to meet the animals on his farmstead which was a big highlight! The kitchen area was stocked with all the amenities you need, and even has a screened in dining area. I can't recommend this camp enough!
Beautiful, well-kept camping area. Visiting a campsite on someone's personal property usually has the advantages of the owner's taking pride in keeping the site well-maintained and as enjoyable an experience for campers as possible. This was certainly no exception. Joseph was friendly and helpful, but mostly left us to enjoy the site on our own.
Couldn't have asked for anything more - it even had some newer toilet and shower stalls (immaculate) and an outdoor kitchen (enclosed)!
Just be prepared for a little bit of walking - we overpacked our cooler, and it was a little tough carrying it to the site from the car. But it was nice not being so close to everything, including the car.
FANTASTIC stay. DEFINITELY will go back if we're in the area again.
Slice of heaven
This was the most peaceful and campsite with the most beautiful country views I've ever had. We set-up by the pond and had fantastic views of the surrounding hills and valley. Great weather and watching the moonrise was a bonus. We had to pack everything in but the views made it all worthwhile. Definitely recommend if you are considering a stay here.
Bucolic stay 25 min from ithaca
Joe couldn’t be nicer! His property is lush and green, and he’s prepared it well for tent camping with enough space to give everyone some privacy. The outhouses are spotless, and the kitchen and fire pit (though we didn’t use them) were nice touches.
