We hand a wonderful family weekend tent camping night. Everything was as expected with the added aroma of thyme as we walked around the site. Highly recommend!

So many stars! 🤩

Wonderful private site. James is the consummate host! We had a fabulous time. He was very accommodating and a great resource of suggestions for what to do in the Lake George area. We will definitely consider returning here again!

James’ property is a wonderful place to camp! Our site was in the woods, very spacious, with an overlook onto the river, which we went down to and swam up and down to cool off. Cat mountain, with great hikes and amazing views, is only 10 mins away. We were only there 2 nights, but could have stayed longer, such a great location. Would definitely return!

View from Cat Mountain. Park is 10 min away. Campfire overlooking river Spacious woods campsite

We rented site 1, it was very private and secluded with a little path down to the river. James is a very nice and welcoming host who did a great job creating this little slice of heaven! Was especially glad we booked here after seeing how tightly packed nearby camp grounds had their sites!

James is awesome and the site is perfect. We have a vw weatfalia and the place is perfect for it. Site 1 is buried in the woods and we didn’t see it. Site 2 is right when you enter and is closest to the bathroom and sink / shower / water but also the least private. Site 3 is on the other side of a big full tree so is more private but still close. Sites are up on a river bank about 25 feet up. There is a path down past site 3 with stairs at the very end to the river. We had a blast wading and swimming. Saw a few kayakers and tubers but for the most part it was super private. James gave us space but was very personable and helpful with suggestions about things to do in the area. He offered to let my kids ride his mountain bikes while we packed up. He just seemed like a very generous and personable host. Couldn’t ask for more on that front. Only downside for us was the distant noise of the interstate. Wasn’t bad, but no one else mentioned it, so thought I’d put it out there. Saw millions of stars and Milky Way on clear night. Really great experience. Awesome communication and very easy, relaxing time.
