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 forest and is very secluded. AANR friendly. The campsite is near where the farmhouse and barn once stood but the woods are a short walk away. 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 Allegheny River is about 10 miles away (Tidioute, PA) and has excellent paddling and fishing. Also nearby (15 miles, Titusville, PA) is Drake Well Museum which is home of the first oil well ever drilled and Oil Creek State Park which has great trout fishing and an excellent paved bike/hike trail. Finally, you will be on the doorstep to the Allegheny National Forest with all the outdoor recreation it has to offer.

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.

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.
