Places to see near Doug H.’s Land
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
We ended up staying at campsite 2 because it was open and was a more private site. Both sites are really nice. The pump house property is so cool. When we arrived, Doug met us and showed us the site, chatted a bit, and set us up with a cart to unload our stuff. We had a really nice time. Super quiet, the creek is really great (I went for a swim) and the nice clean bathrooms were a bonus. We would definitely come back again.
Flat site right on a clean creek
This was a great spot along the very clean Catawissa Creek. There were several flat areas to pitch a tent and the rock fire ring had a large grate you lifted off and on. Site 2 has the spot with the little cascades that were drowned out at site 1 with the night creature sounds. Site 2 is close that you hear conversations of people but no other site around. Site 2 does walk by site one to get anywhere but there’s a path they take that doesn’t cut through site 1. I’d definitely go here again, but probably choose site 2 next time. The bathroom was very clean and the grounds were fun to walk around and explore with my dog.
Pumphousebnb is addictive!!
I cannot believe how amazing Doug’s place is! Guests are welcomed by Doug, Lisa and Dan with their beautiful smiles and were welcomed by their friendly cats. Needless to say, bathrooms were decorated beautifully and clean. The buildings on the property were decorated with Doug’s cool artworks and flower arrangements all over the grounds were breathtaking. The kids didn’t want to leave the friendly cats. This place is full of positive vibes and peace. Thank you so much for letting us enjoy your beautiful campground and for your welcoming smiles. I am already looking to book for another stay here.
We will return
A clean comfortable stay by the creek with only one other camping group on the small island. You can easily go across the creek and fish. Very picturesque and relaxing spot with thoughtful hosts. WiFi can be had by the bathrooms and all bathrooms and showers were clean and functional.
