** PRIMITIVE CAMPING **

The canvas bell tent experience is located on a rise with beautiful fall views of the 66-acre property. The canvas tent has windows to insure airflow throughout the tent.

The Sibley 400 Ultimate gives you the best of both worlds! Waterproof and breathable Classic Canvas (9.5 oz/yd²) and a heavy-duty water impenetrable groundsheet to keep you warm and dry. When it's hot you can unzip the sidewalls and roll them up for maximum ventilation. Thirteen feet in diameter with 134 ft² of floor space. Ideal for 2-4 people.

Enjoy incredible panoramic views on the property of the Blue Mountain and Swatara Creek Park, beautiful sunsets, starry nights, and the warmth of a crackling fire from your own fire ring!

A Big Buddy portable heater is available for rent so you can be toasty and enjoy an expanded camping season. *Book this through the Extras *

Bring ALL of your own sleeping bags, cots, blow-up mattresses, camp gear, and cookware. Minimal amenities are provided: a camping lantern or other light source and a campfire cooking grate. Cots, blow-up mattresses, folding chairs, and tables are available for rent. * Book this through the Extras *

The hot tub is located next to the owner's home. Guests are welcome to use this at any time but must reserve and pay for a time slot. * Book this through the Extras *

Great spot! The canvas tent was a cool little hideout and Erin and Bill even brought me a propane space heater when we got the weather report that it was going to be 15 degrees that night. Really enjoyed just touring the property and hanging out with their puppy George and watching the chickens and roosters roam around. The place is an airfield so you can walk over to the runway and see where planes land. Nice dark sky too for stargzers. Definitely worth checking out!
