Beautifully tranquil stunning skies
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!
Great secluded spot close to anf!
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.
Tree farm delivers again
Another great stay at the Tree Farm. Saw probably the clearest and most starlit night sky I’ve ever seen in PA, or possibly anywhere. We’ll be back again for sure.
The best kind of “campground” for those that like to boondock or set up a tent! No sardine camping here, only 2 sites separated by acres of trees. Enjoy nature, trails, and stars on clear nights. Dave is friendly and as attentive as you need him to be. Great host for a great way to escape from the busyness of every day life.
Beautiful, peaceful visit
Another beautiful, peaceful visit we enjoyed very much. The trails are wonderful, the butterflies, birds and deer were abundant. Thanks for sharing this sanctuary with us!
