Stayed on “the island” primitive camping site, upon arrival there was a stack of wood, ready for a hearty campfire. Michael made sure I had everything I needed, was kind and authentic. I recommend adding a wood bundle when paying online, it supports a local guy! We cooked a fantastic meal on cast iron over hot bricks while listening to the nightlife. My dog enjoyed laying around under the moon. Other campsites are far enough away that you really don't hear them. There is a camper a little walk away to use toilet and shower rinse, Michael has spring water hookup near house where you may fill jugs for water if needed.

Wonderful stay. We parked our 30ft camper right next to the pond. There is a little beach to swim and a dock to fish. There are giant bushes for privacy. Mostly level ground. Land is well kept with a porta potty if needed. Good cell service on ATT & Verizon. Mike was a great host! He was so kind and welcoming. Our families had dinner together and all the kids had a blast climbing trees, swimming and running around. This stay is exactly why we love hipcamp so much.

We had a serene and relaxing weekend camping at Borderline on the "island." Michael was a wonderful and friendly host, and communication with him was nearly effortless because he was so responsive. The property is charming, several camp sites around the pond, with the one on the island as the crown jewel. It was private, but not isolated from road access or pond/beach access. The pond was lovely, warm and clean, with an actual sand beach and dock, so no mucky muddy feet! Thank you Michael for allowing us to enjoy Borderline, we hope to return again soon!

My family loved camping on Mikes land. His hospitality went above and beyond. Our 4 year old spent the day at "Pap's Beach" which is a wonderful swimming hole with a sand shore. She caught her first fish with the help our the wonderful host, Mike. We pitched our tent in a private shaded area with plenty of trees for hanging hammocks and a nice view of the lake and a fire pit. 10/10 recommend for anyone needing a getaway close to Pittsburgh with kids.

Michael was a great host. We got there and got to pick our spot, we had a little island all to ourselves. He came around and made sure we were good, and even checked to see if he could put on a fireworks show the second day. The property was beautiful, I just wanted to float in the water all day. I can't wait to rebook for our next weekend away
