Boat in- private island retreat!!
Tim’s place was absolutely incredible!! He is an amazing and generous host, and made our stay so comfortable and easy. Waters Island is an absolute retreat- the fact that you have to boat in and you have the space completely to yourself makes this whole experience so special. The host was super easy to communicate with and he gave us detailed instructions for how to access the site and a few other tips to make our stay more comfortable. After a quick float down to the island, it was easy to unload the boat and set up camp. A large cleared space near Tim’s cabin was where we set up since we were the only people on the island. It was so much fun to explore the trails that are cut throughout the island, and it was so special to see the pair of nesting bald eagles. There was a big fire and cooking pit, plenty of firewood and lots of fishing access. The sunrise washes over camp in the morning and there is plenty of shade throughout the day. Waters Island felt like our own private getaway on the beautiful Susquehanna and it is a place we will absolutely return to!!! Cheers to Tim for sharing this slice of heaven with people who will appreciate and respect it as much as he does!!
Book this trip.
Everything advertised, with many additional bonuses. Private island on the river. Stay at the individual site overlooking the river, or roam freely and lay the neck whoever you want. While being respectful of the nature around you... do what you wish.
Timothy couldn’t have been better. Lifetime resident. He’ll tell you all you’d like to hear, and/or let you freely do your thing. Always a phone call away. Endless dry firewood and if it’s a warm day, enjoy the heavily shaded ring, chair and corner table set up.
Look forward to going back.
Beautiful stay on the island
We had a great time on Tim's island. We were able to use his canoe to get to the island with our dog. Tim met us on the shore and brought our gear over in his motor boat for us. He had cleared out a space for us, brought a fire ring, cut wood, and provided table and chairs. We were only there for a night but had a great time. Tim was a fantastic host, a phone call away if we needed anything, and called to check in on us when a quick storm rolled in. We hope to go back for a longer stay!
Fourth of july weekend!
Ah where to begin! We booked with Tim super last minute for the holiday weekend and we really lucked out! Not only was it the coolest campsite but Tim was super friendly and knowledgeable. It was a great weekend escape from the city and Tim's hospitality really made our trip. From his knowledge about the area to the best damn BBQ chicken I've ever had, this is a five star site and we will be coming back very soon! Thank you again Tim!
Beautiful camping on the sus river
We had an amazing time on Tim’s island! We were nervous about kayaking/canoeing but he showed everything and made it very easy. He set us up on the small island so that our dog could run free. Our dog loved exploring and swimming as did we. It was a beautiful weekend camping trip and totally relaxing.
He is a gracious host and welcomed us to have a beer with him and his family.
We even saw a baby bald eagle while we were kayaking around!
We recommend this opportunity to any that are interested. It was a great experience and I hope we get to go again.
Thank you so much, Tim!
A must go
A slice of heaven. Thats what Tim has here on his island. It was perfect for our groups desired trip, a bunch of guys looking to fish, hang out and get away from it all. Must be relatively experienced camper, primitive camping know-how too. But Tim is an amazing host and can help remind you of the little things that might come in handy on the trip to his island. I could talk about this trip for hours with all the fun times and stories so Ill just say book it while you can.
Little piece of heaven
Tim said it best, the island is his little slice of heaven, and I can see why. Tim made sure that we were comfortable and was incredibly accommodating. The worst part about this trip was knowing that our time on the island would eventually come to an end.
It was great getting to know Tim and the amazing things he has done in his life. 10/10 experience.
I have never had a better camping experience! The host was friendly, flexible, hospitable and more than than accommodating. I would highly recommend Taking this trip! I will be returning soon.
Unique stay on the susquehanna
Tim was very helpful in making sure we got to the island ok. Kayaking in was so peaceful and beautiful. There are a group of guys who stay on the island on the weekends and they were all very friendly and welcoming. There were two other groups camping on their property for the weekend, but our site was private and secluded. Our site was a short distance away from the highway and we could hear traffic the whole time, which was a bit disappointing, but not Tim’s fault there of course. There were some nice walking paths getting around the island as well as a smaller little island you could wade over to. Tim and crew made us dinner which was really nice for us to not have to worry about packing in food to cook. They did stop by the camp several times to check on us, so be aware of that if you’re wanting absolute privacy. Ultimately, we had a great time.
