Had a fantastic time! The owners were very helpful and even went a step above and beyond to help us when we realized we forgot camping stakes! Pat was wonderful giving us a tour, providing firewood, and showing us all of the animals and property. We welcomed the outdoor cats to come stay with us, and they did! We loved the company. The outhouse was very clean and bug-free. Skeeters sucked a little bit (literally!) But we didn't encounter any ticks, thank goodness. would absolutely come back again! Thanks guys!
What an amazing place!
What an amazing place. Deb and Pat are amazing. If you want to get away and relax this is for you. We saw and heard so many different animals, fished and walked the woods. We will definitely go back. 10 or of 10.
This is such a nice place! Loved being greeted by the mini horses and donkeys. Found a quiet, level spot to car camp across from the pond and privy. The owners were very attentive.
My friend and I got there pretty late at night, but our host was super understanding and was up to meet us both when we arrived. Our host was very friendly and let us know we were free to walk around the next morning. The place was pretty nice, it was a lot more private than camping in a state park. The miniature horses were awesome and the little trails were nice to take a walk on. This place would be awesome for kids to play, especially for those who love to adventure or have a big imagination. As a person in their early 20s, I would definitely stay here again.
Short and sweet stay
We had a wonderful time during our short stay! We camped with our two young daughters and our two small dogs. Farmer Pat was as kind as could be and showed us to our camp site and told us all about the property and the horses. He let us know about the coyotes and their pups that we might hear howling and said they would sound closer than they actually were, which we counted on during the middle of the night! The miniature horses and donkeys gave us a very warm welcome in the morning. We enjoyed exploring the beautiful and serene property, trails, forest and pond and just wished we could have stayed longer. (One night was all we could manage with a toddler!) We definitely plan to return!
We loved camp avery!
Pat and Deb were the most welcoming and gracious hosts! They were accommodating to all of our needs and beyond. We were lucky to have the hiking trails to ourselves and find a true moment of peace at Camp Avery. Your space and privacy are respected - we chose to invite Pat down to our fire and one of the best parts of our trip was getting to know all about him, his land, and his family. Not only is he friendly, it’s also important to note he was incredibly respectful of COVID boundaries.
We can’t wait to go back, hear the wildlife, and see the guardian of the forest (the knight protecting the woods so that Pat + Deb’s grandkids don't get scared), and hopefully catch Deb for a psychic reading!
10/10 would recommend.
We found this site totally by accident while planning for a trip from central Illinois to the Philly area. It was the perfect half-way stopping point. Fairly close to the freeway. Nice, clean sites. Very accommodating hosts, etc.... And, very family friendly.
We only had the pleasure of spending a beautiful, but brief, 12 hours at Camp Avery on our cross country journey. But we highly recommend! Camp Hosts Pat and Deborah were very friendly. We got an opportunity to meet the horses on the way into the site. We arrived as the sun was setting and didn’t have as much time to explore as we’d like, but got an opportunity to take a look around in the morning. Such a beautiful place! We had a nice fire, outhouse is very clean. The only thing we would change is the length of our stay. ;) Camp Avery, being our first stop, set the bar pretty high! We would definitely return!
