When my father died in 2020 I removed this shed before we sold my childhood home. It measures 8' x 10' and is completely empty if you wish to sleep in it on a bad weather night (or a good weather night). Currently, it is three sided with the front open that you may use as you please. It has two 50amp outlets, one 30amp outlet, and normal 110 outlets to charge your phone.

When my father died in 2020 I removed this shed before we sold my childhood home. It measures 8' x 10' and is completely empty if you wish to sleep in it on a bad weather night (or a good weather night). Currently, it is three sided with the front open that you may use as you please. It has two 50amp outlets, one 30amp outlet, and normal 110 outlets to charge your phone.

Free campfire wood is included; you may use anything on the ground. A picnic table and six plastic chairs are included. A propane grill is provided at no extra charge. There is a 55 gallon plastic barrel filled with drinkable well water - although there may be some forest dirt particles that gets in.

If you want to escape from humanity, this sixty acre ridge top is secluded and private. You will not have to talk to anyone. You will not even have to deal with the property owner. There is a clear night sky east and south for astronomy. You may walk and explore freely as long as you do not cross the well-painted white property lines. Twenty acres is 'tall forest, thirty acres is newly logged regrowth brush, and ten acres is crop field.

This location is two hours south of PSU, five hours west on NYC, and twenty minutes north of the Turnpike Willow Hill Exit.

Peaceful get away from the world!

This is the place to go to get away from people. This spot is located along a ridge overlooking a field, a small & lightly used backroad, forest, mountains, and some hiking trails. Just enough signal on a Verizon phone to have contact with the outside world - if needed. Our WeBoost RV65 also worked well. If you use Starlink, there is quite a bit of open sky.

We chose to park along the trail. This provided the closest to level ground we could locate. It only required the use of some small blocks/ramps. We were in the sun for 45% of the day and shade for the rest. If you need more shade, you can pull in next to the shed and have shade most of the day. It is a bit tougher to get level in there, so make sure to bring all your leveling blocks, ramps, and jacks for that one. Note: 1 each of a 50-amp, a 30-amp, and a 15/20-amp are on the outside of the shed.

There is a fire pit dug into the ground and plenty of seasoned deadfall just past it - in the woods. We had no issue finding firewood of all sizes that burnt well. This may change as more people adventure here.

For RV campers, be warned about the culvert at the entrance to the dirt road, especially if you're pulling a trailer. If you take your time and find the right approach and departure angles, you should be good. We knew about this ahead of time & Wesley did mention he is working on grading it to be more level to help prevent this in the future.

All in all - we highly recommend this location and our host Wesley!

Great location. Bugs were a bit much but overall it was a wonderful private spot. Beautiful views! I would definitely stay again.

This was such a beautiful campsite to enjoy our weekend with friends! We had more than enough space to set up three tents and multiple hammocks. The view was beautiful, the stars at night were spectacular, there was a lovely walking trail in the woods that was perfect for our dog, and we also found an amazing creek only 5 minutes away to cool off. We additionally found a small town (Spring Run) about 15 minutes away that had a dollar general if you need supplies, a market, and a place to grab food/ice cream! The owners were extremely responsive and helpful (they even drove out and helped us unlock our car when we locked our keys inside on the first night!!!) The shed was also very convenient for storage and use of the outlets. We had an incredibly refreshing weekend at this campsite and I would recommend it to anyone.

This is a fantastic spot to get away. It's a flat ridgetop with a gorgeous 180* view of the ridges/valleys in front of you. You have open space and sky in front of you, and a forest to your back. I was lucky enough to see some deer and turkey during my stay. The place is very easy to find, right off a hard road (but still very private and secluded), primative but still homey feeling. I used the place as a random tenting spot. It looks like it would be great for backpackers if there is a trail near by, anyone who wants to tent, or bring an RV. Nice bonfire pit too! I had fun walking the woods and picking up brush to burn, and having a bonfire.

We loved this site, the views of the mountains during the day and stars at night were amazing.
The picnic table with umbrella was a wonderful surprise and perfect place to sit and enjoy meals.
The site is private and a great place to rest and relax while watching deer grazing in the field.
If you’re into astronomy then this is a great place for stargazing, we even watched the ISS fly directly over us.
We hope to visit this site again during the different seasons.
