Things to know! These sites are on a county road right off Rt 80, just over an awesome one lane bridge. They are surrounded by active Cattle Farms. You will hear traffic, and smell and see farm animals. Although a private location, The sites can be seen from the road. This is a perfectly safe pull off location if you are looking for overnight accommodation, or even longer stays.

Again, this property is awesome when used as a base camp. No Utilities on the property. The price per night reflects that this is what it is. An affordable safe place on a creek for you to enjoy!

Please be respectful of the Amish Community that live in our area. You will see very beautiful Amish Farms, Horse and Buggy on the road at all times. Enjoy their close by farm markets, bakeries, quilt stores, and saw mills. They do not like their picture taken, so please respect their ways! TYSM!

Nice Private no frills spot to hang for the weekend on a super cool creek with an awesome one lane bridge you have to pass to get to the property. Site was spacious to back or pull in our 32' RV. Amish horse and buggy up and down the road. we found several beautiful Amish farm stores to buy fresh eggs, produce and bundled fire wood. The town of Fort Plain was just minutes away for groceries, gas, bank, ect. This spot for the affordable price is exactly what we were looking for. SAFE, PRIVATE, and close to Cooperstown NY! We will def book this site again when we visit the Hall of Fame in the fall! Thanks Rain!

Shade available at each site.Standing on the 1 lane bridge looking right of the property.Site 1 just to the left of the driveway as you pull in.Hope to have the electric hooked up before fall!
