The site was great. Nicely set up and right next to trails/water. James was awesome as well. He greeted my friend and I and gave us some great tips for our stay. Definitely check out some of the other awesome rentals and offerings he has available to you on your stay. All together a great getaway for a couple nights with a friend and his dog. Will definitely be back for another trip!

James was very accommodating. The camp was a nice getaway. There was a fire pit, a pavilion, vending machine, electrical plugs, and an outhouse. It was easy to get to yet offered a friend and I a place to camp to get away from the every day bustle. The proximity to local trails and the river was great. Would def stay here again!

This is a base camp as described- right by major bike/walking paved river trail.. The trail and the area are beautiful. I decided it was too public to camp alone so close to major road. Traffic noise. It would be good for a group or at least a couple prepared to bike or hike. GPS sent me across the street at someone’s house.

This was a great experience! The site was really cool and very close to the river and the owners were very friendly and helpful.

Great place to stay while biking or kayaking.

This Hipcamp was sooooooo amazing!!! The owners were so welcoming and accommodating!!! The camp was so calming, away from the rush of life and full of history! The creek and bike path was an added bonus!! I would absolutely stay there again!!!😁

Perfect spot to get off the road and enjoy the Susquehanna. Nice fire pit and plenty of room to camp.
