This tucked away wooded campsite is 5 miles away from the Ohiopyle State Park whitewater launch area and GAP bike trail. We are 9 miles from Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater. Nemocolin Resort is less than 1 mile away with golf and many amenities. Fort Necessity National Battlefield is 5 miles away. There are numerous native trout streams in the area. Youghiogheny Reservoir is 7 miles away for fishing, boat rentals, and watersports.

The wooded camp site is somewhat primitive and perfect for van or truck camping, hammocks, and small tents. We are "nice pet" friendly. We have a mountain spring (when the spring is running) and free-range chickens near the site. The ferns will be in full glory by the end of May and are amazing, covering the forest floor. Deer, Wild Turkey, chipmunks, squirrels and many woodland birds abound. A picnic table, fire ring and firewood is available on the camp site. There is a compost toilet facility located in a nearby shed that is a clean space for taking care of business. Free WIFI on the property as long as the plant life is not too thick! There is a 1/2 mile hiking loop on the property and many challenging trails in the area, including the starting point for the Laurel Highlands Hiking Trail.

We had an amazing stay at Virgil's place. The campsite was so close to everything we wanted to do (rock climbing, water sports, hiking, Fallingwater), and our dog loved being able to roam free in the woods. The mountain spring steps from our tent to use for cooking was delightful (we also drank the water, and it was delicious). Virgil and his wife were really nice and helpful as well and gave us eggs from their chickens. :) 100% recommend for a camping spot around Ohiopyle!

We really enjoyed our stay. We are new to tent camping and the site and amenities were great. So close to all the things we wanted to do. Virgil is a great host and we would stay on his lovely property again. Try the tree tent!
