This 140-acre property is an old farmstead last farmed in the 1950's. It lies on top of the Allegheny Plateau region of NW Pennsylvania and is mostly hardwood forest today. It is surrounded by thousands of acres of private forestland and is very secluded. Our goal is to provide a private and secluded yet accessible camping experience where you will most likely see more deer than people. AANR friendly. The skies are dark at night and the sounds of nature will surround you.

Campsite 1 is near where the farmhouse and barn once stood. The site is shaded by large, old maples that once shaded the farmhouse. Old fields surround the farmstead, but the woods are a short walk away.  It is the most popular campsite with a fire ring, picnic table and port-a-potty available.  Campsite 2 is on the other side of the property. There is a fire ring but no picnic table or toilet facilities.  Both sites easily accommodate anything from tents to RV's. Each site has a separate, gated, gravel road access. These are the only 2 campsites on the property and they are far enough apart (1/4 mile) to avoid any contact should both sites be occupied.

There is a 2-mile loop hiking trail on the property that traverses a variety of habitats which are home to many animals and birds. The trail is well maintained and mowed. The terrain is flat to gentle slopes. The 1/2-mile Narnia Loop trail weaves through a young spruce forest like a maze. It is so cool, literally, even on the hottest days.

The Allegheny River is about 10 miles away, near Tidioute, PA, and has excellent paddling and fishing. Titusville, PA is about 15 miles away and is home to Oil Creek State Park which has great trout fishing and an excellent paved bike/hike trail andDrake Well Museum site of the first oil well ever drilled. Finally, you will be on the doorstep to the Allegheny National Forest with all the outdoor recreation it has to offer.

Beautiful peaceful property. Plenty of flat gravel parking for our 35 foot motor home. Great campsite with fire ring and picnic table. Also had porta Jon that we didn’t need to use but great for tent campers. Very cool 2 mile walking path thru his perfectly managed wood lots. Dave was a great host who met us there and welcomed us. Great communication before the camp. And loved it being pet friendly so our dogs could enjoy it too

Dave's place was great! There is plenty of space for privacy on the site. Site 1 had a spot to pull your car up, a couple of stumps to sit around a fire, and a fire pit. I had service there the whole time which was helpful when setting up directions and next camp spots on the way out. Dave was very hospitable and made sure I didn't have any needs or questions before he left. He also left a bin with me that had information about stuff to do in the area.

The GPS took me part way there and then all I had to do was keep driving to the end of the road, passed the old truck, camper and a white house to your left to get to the gate to the tree farm.

The highlight, for me, was the hiking trail. It was very clearly marked and had a lot of variety but was not too physically demanding. If you start the hike over by site 1, be prepared for a treat at the end of the hike. It truly was beautiful and peaceful.

I would recommend Dave's campsite for a secluded, peaceful and nature-filled stay.

Awesome place. he has a very small number of spaces ( i believe 2) which makes for a very tranquil secluded stay. I still owe him $10 for the use of his firewood

Absolutely great place. Being an amateur astrophotographer it was like heaven. The dark skies were stunning and the days were tranquil. Dave does a phenomenal job and I can't wait to go back.

Chappel Hill Tree Farm is a beautiful, magical campsite where you can feel truly at peace and connected to nature. We were here for a quick overnight stay in the middle of a long road trip but wished we could’ve stayed longer! Thanks for the personal touches like the “happy camper” sign, solar light, and box of resources about the area Dave!

Dave was a wonderful host! Site 1 was gorgeous - picnic table, fire ring, and two stumps as chairs. Very private, great star gazing. The site has just the right about of shade to stay cool on hot days.
