Tent site just feet from cliff overlooking French Creek and state gamelands.  The cliff trail runs a couple hundred feet before dropping down to creek level for access to fish, swim, or kayak.  2 miles of mowed walking trails through the 150 acre property are all yours as well.

This is a nature lovers paradise!  There is an eagles nest a couple hundred yards up the creek and they sit in the dead trees directly across the stream while hunting for fish.   The deer cross the stream for access to the gamelands and can be seen every morning and evening.  Gorgeous views at all times during the day but especially at sunset.

About the property:

150 secluded acres of woods, fields, and streams, tons of places to play and explore.  There are 2 miles of mowed trails around the 4 fields and into the woods.  The house is very close to the road and is about 1/4 mile or more from the cliff/ tent site, so we'll be close enough if you need something but far enough away for you to do your thing.  You'll need to park a short walk, 100 feet, from the tent site and fire pit.  There is only room for one tent down by the cliff but you can place more up in the field just a couple second walk away.

About the creek/ reservoir:

This is on the upstream side of Union City Dam so during normal summer camping the creek will just be a creek.  But early in the spring or after very heavy rain the creek backs up and will flood the whole valley up within feet of the cliff.  It is gorgeous but unpredictable.  Bring your kayak, you can either float the creek or paddle on the reservoir right up to the eagles nest tree.

Andrew was an amazing host and this property was picturesque! I recommend you get his fire bundle and set up a little campfire as you watch the sunset. The area was teeming with wildlife, I would absolutely recommend this camping spot for anyone looking for a little time away tucked into nature while still feeling safe.

Awesome view, camp spot, and property!!! It feels like a different world from the second we turned off the dead end dirt road. The campsite is right on the egde of the cliff and the rippling water sets a relaxing mood. We got set up with a couple hours to explore before sunset and walked the trails to find spots to explore the next day. You definitely want to be back at the cliff to watch the full spectacle of sunset. Our's was great but could be spectacular if the clouds are right.
The second day we explored the 2 drainage creeks spotting wildlife and searching for crayfish. We then followed the water down to French Creek and plopped our chairs in the water and spotted the eagles 4 times within an hour.
Couldn't recommend more! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
