Dennis Alan City Boy Homesteader here. I moved from the NYC area to build an off grid homestead on a bare 28 acres in central PA surrounded by Amish farms. The land is still pretty much raw and beautiful with many different spots on the property to pitch a tent for the night or week! From pitching a tent on an open pasture, surrounded by trees alone, next to a creek, or even in an old rock quarry. That's right there are two old rock quarries that you could take advantage of. The small on has it's own little cave at the base and the larger one has a stage made of rocks to facilitate shows there. Our neighbor is the famous Woodward Cave and just down the road is one of the top 5 trout fishing spots in the northeast, Coburn PA. A town over, at the only light around, is Millheim, PA where the few businesses are a cool art gallery, farm to table restaurant/ brew pub, IngleBean (.com) Coffee House (that I own), local winery, 2 wine stores and a local meat market! wow great place to be on a Saturday afternoon. Most weekends in the summer will have some kind of fair or festival going on so please check in with me with any questions.

The site was so cool woth a table and chsirs, firepit and a newly built tent deck. Dennis met us and was a great host as we talked socially for a while. I highlt recomend this site. Venture downtown to the Inglebean for great coffee and breakfast. Elk creek cahe is next door as well. Great getaway.

We stayed at site 1. This site was beautiful and secluded. We walked around to the other sites on the property, we’d love to stay again, maybe in the summer. The stars at night were incredible. We purchased the Inglebean coffee, which we made several pots of while camping. Can’t wait to return!

The quarry was unanimously the favorite stop on our trip from Texas to Connecticut. We loved the drive in and passing carriages and farmsteads along the way. We were a little unsure at first arrival but once we go into the property and to the campsite we were super excited. It’s a unique spot, private and quiet.

Dennis was a really nice host and gave us a lot of info about cool things to do in the area and on his property. Super chill, private space and adorable dogs!! Also surrounded by Amish farms which is a very cool experience - on our walks we would mainly see Amish buggies and farmers! Would definitely return!
