Everything was beautiful. Large, extremely quiet and private site. Amazing view of the stars. Excellent cell phone reception. Lots of birds. Very clean outhouse too.
Joanna K has set up a really nice drive through site with a lovely fire pit, several Adirondack chairs and a couple hammocks. There are trails to walk on all over the place to bird watch and perhaps see a deer.
If you’re looking to get away from it all this is it. In a meadow on a hillside in the middle of nowhere. We would go there again.
Upper Shire was a fantastic spot to camp. Each site on the property is secluded enough to make it feel like you’re just camping with your friends instead of at a big campsite. On top of that, Joanna was kind and super helpful. We’re definitely going to come back here again!!
Perfect spot to relax & rejuvenate
Upper Shire was wonderful! Quiet and safe with freshly mowed trails, fireflies(!) and a beautiful breeze. The location was perfect for letting the dogs run around the trails and for a long walk along the very lightly traveled road (excellent for running too). Beautiful scenery and lovely homes. We had planned on just staying one night, but almost as soon as we arrived we knew we needed more time at this place and booked another night.
We highly recommend this site!
The host was the most accommodating host we’ve met yet. The land was beautiful, secluded and a little peace of heaven. Felt very grateful to be staying in the Upper Shire. Would absolutely, positively stay here again. My only complaint would be the fact we couldn’t stay longer than we did. Amazing spot!
Joannas camp site is such an amazing experience. She is so welcoming and available she is honest with the environment. Great location for new and senior campers. Heads up super market is five min away so go shopping at the local vendors. Support small business.
We loved our evening. Despite the very hot day, it cooled down in the evening and we enjoyed a fire. It was very pleasant listening to the birds and the site was beautiful and remote. We had a wonderful bike rider earlier in the day and the spot is so convenient to the rail trail. Our hosts were very responsive and friendly. Will definitely come back!
