We have 10 forested hilly acres 12 miles from Ithaca. We’ve built a camp 120 yards uphill with a covered dry lean-to with a double bed platform inside to put your sleeping bags or to put supplies off the ground & dry. Lots of room for tents. We have a primitive upper camp where you can also put tents for privacy. There’s a teepee with a wood base. The campfire has a grill, 2 homemade benches & an Adirondack chair. An orange hammock and also a picnic table. There’s a fun homemade swing & seesaw. We made many marked walking trails around our land to enjoy. There is access to well water. Dry cut bundled ash Firewood is available for $6 a bundle on our porch. For ecological reasons outside wood from over 50 miles can’t be brought in. . There is a portable toilet and a hose cold shower attachment, not private, to rinse off. Our jump in the one or creek.

Come enjoy. It is very quiet. We are close to Treman, Buttermilk And Taughannock State Parks which all have swimming. Watkins Glen State Park and racetrack is half an hour away. Watkins Glen is breathtakingly magnificent. Also great cross country skiing, walking and hunting nearby at Connecticut Hill. There is downhill skiing at Greek Peak 45 minutes away if you are winter campers. We are 14 miles from Cornell University and 10 miles from Ithaca College. We are between two finger lakes, Cayuga and Seneca, there are 60 wineries and breweries around the lakes.Woman’s Rights National Museum in Seneca Falls, Corning Museum of Glass is fabulous. Ithaca has theatres, museums for art and lots to do for kids like a public pool on the lake.Or simply hang out and enjoy our ten private acres of forest.

This was a very nice, wooded site. The details about the site on HipCamp are all accurate. It was convenient to be able to buy firewood right at the house, and also use the clean porta-potty and hose-shower. If you have kids, the swing and seesaw look fun. I used the hammock and it was large and comfy. My dog had plenty of space to be off-leash. He got his exercise chasing all the chipmunks and squirrels (he never catches them, thankfully). Note that if you have a lot of gear like me (I'm a car camper), you will have to carry it about 100 yards up an incline to the site. I was grateful that Pam let me use their wheelbarrow! Also, for whatever reason, I did not see a single biting insect all weekend, and never used bug repellant--nice bonus!

Pamela's place was a lovely and secluded place to camp with the family. There's a small playground at the site that our kids loved. Plenty of tree cover kept it cool on a hot weekend. Very close to Buttermilks Falls and Robert Treman.

We love that the canopy of the trees and the lean to kept us dry in the freak storm! The kids loved playing on the sea-saw and swing as well at the teepee and lean to for activities!!! We hiked the trail to the upper and camp and fished pond !! Pamela was a super host and very welcoming- and private camp area !

Beautiful land, fun environment, private & excellent hospitality! Pam met us when we arrived and gave us the low-down of the land! There are private trails right off of the site, my dog was even able to confidently be off leash for the first time.

Pamela and Bob did an amazing job on creating a space for people to genuinely enjoy! The inclusion of hand crafted pieces is unique and so useful! The space is also very private and secluded while still being plenty close enough to necessities. Pamela is kind, helpful, welcoming and makes the process as easy as possible. We will absolutely be coming back to enjoy staying here again!
