Our approach is to have a small number of campsites over a large area (4 sites on 75 acres) to maintain that "middle of the woods" feeling.  This site is accessible by vehicle in dry conditions, but be aware that in wet conditions you will have to park and walk in (about 5 minutes).  This site is unique and unlike anything in the area.  Completely flat, and heavily shaded, it is perched 420 feet above the Allegheny river with an amazing view.   During your stay you will have access to all 75 acres of our property.  To see photos and reviews for the other sites on this property, Please look up "75 acres with hiking and waterfall" and "Travelers campsite on 75 acres".  The reviews don't lie!!  This site is the best of the best!!

Excellent view, lots of shade. We had a great time. Ground is rocky so I’d recommend an air mattress or sleeping pad.

Chris’ property provided an excellent camping experience. Peaceful, quiet forest with some terrific views. Our site was perfectly perched high on the hill with a gentle breeze and very few bugs. Going down to the waterfall was a dream, absolutely gorgeous.

We absolutely loved this site! Very secluded, quiet … a perfect base for our North Country trail hiking trip. Chris is a wonderful host; thoughtful and quick to respond. We had no problem getting there.

Well, hands down this is one of the best camping spots that I have found. Chris has fantastic well kept piece of land. All of the camp sites are great this one though is the exception. I would be careful bringing young kids unless you plan to watch them however there are plenty of other great spots on his property. Theres not many places where you get to camp at eye level with BALD EAGLES! Great place, great weekend, beautiful views all around and a very clean water way for hiking fishing or just relaxing… its a must see because the reviews can not do it justice. Thanks again Chris we will be back!

For those of you who have booked with Chris in the past already know you’re getting a top notch experience and his newest site is no exception. This campsite was by far the coolest site we have ever been to. I felt like I was in Colorado but I was only an hour from Cranberry township! Our stay was amazing and the site is beyond picture perfect. This campsite should literally be featured in a magazine. The fact that we were able to rent this site, for this price, and have access to 75 acres blows my mind. Chris gave us detailed check-in instructions then pretty much left us to ourselves. We booked on a weekday so we mostly had the place to ourselves. Our search for our “Forever Campsite” ended today!

We loved everything about this secluded site. There is no better feeling than coming to a spot like this to unwind from the outside world. The moment you head to your site you are greeted with stellar views. We set up our hammock right near the overlook, swam in the creek, and ended the evening with a cozy fire. Chris is a phenomenal host with excellent communication and is very kind. There is a reason we keep coming back!

This is a beautiful site with an amazing view. It is entirely secluded and private. Chris is immediately responsive when needed. The waterfall on the property provides a wonderful experience. This vacation spot was a perfect getaway!

Chris’s property is amazing! The views are beautiful - the natural swimming hole is surreal. The options for hiking/biking/etc are abundant, and the property is VERY well maintained. Chris was very responsive and provided great instructions for arrival (trust him - not your GPS!!) . We greatly enjoyed our time there and will definitely be returning!!
