We are gladly sharing our land and campsites for others to enjoy. There are two secluded and quiet camping areas. Both areas have access to a cleared field and plenty of space to relax and unwind. This is a beautiful place for star-gazing away from the city lights. Wildlife sightings might include deer, turkey and a wide variety of birds.  

The base fee for each site includes 2 people and 2 vehicles. We welcome families - kids 12 years old and under are free. Additional people and vehicles in your group can be included for a small fee per person per night - up to 15 people and 8 vehicles.  There is plenty of space and parking for larger groups.

I am in the process of setting up a composting toilet but it is not operational yet. Until it is set up, please go away from camping area to “make your deposit” in a hole you have dug and cover it up with dirt and other ground debris.

This place was such a perfect place to camp out and super big. The fire area was so nice and equipped. John was so kind and helpful with directions and suggestions. The roads to get to this place were so nice and peaceful. I would recommend coming in a truck, but my small sedan still made it up the hill. I would definitely come back to camp out again. Thank you John

Very private and behind a locked gate! Directions are a bit tricky, but was able to contact the host to get a little detail. Beautiful setting in a field up against woods.

John was a wonderful host. Very helpful with my questions and making sure I knew how to get there. I stayed overnight with my leashed dog and enjoyed the open field//seclusion. My favorite part was star gazing before sleep. Ground is perfect for pitching a tent. I did not utilise the fire circle, but it looked great! I would definitely recommend this site and visit again in the future.

View from top of hill. Field is easy to drive and soft to sleep on!I could have pitched my tent anywhere. So perfect for easy camping!!!Enjoyed the end of fall foliage. Most of the site is a grassy field, but it’s surrounded by forest so super private!!!!! Bell by the fire circle

Great spot and John wad great! He gave awesome directions which really helped for getting there in the dark. It was a bit of a struggle getting up the hill in my Prius but I managed!

John’s place was really easy to get to. The camping spot in the woods was absolutely perfect to stay cool and have a great time! The grass in the field was EXTREMELY HIGH. So high our dogs and kids got lost in it. John said it was somewhat high but I was not expecting it to be up to my waist. For the price we paid, I would have expected the grass to be at least cut in certain areas. Besides the grass, it was an awesome spot! Also not that close to the water but can easily find it!

This was my first Hipcamp experience and my family and I had a great time. We stayed at campsite #1 and even though you are in someone’s “backyard” this campsite felt like you were miles down a trail in the back country. This fire pit area was very well set up and the amount (lack) of trash was a welcomed site versus many public campsites. I picked up one glass Pepsi bottle and a few bottle caps and that was it. I have already started planning a return trip with more people as the layout of the campsite can accommodate a solo backpacking tent or a field full of 10 person tents and anything in between. Directions were straight forward and easy to find. Definitely recommend.
